How to – Faux Calligraphy

How To Faux Calligraphy

One of the best decisions I made whilst planning my wedding was learning how to do faux calligraphy. I managed to DIY a lot of my wedding stationary which helped saved a few pennies, and since the wedding I’ve been able to make my bullet journal look prettier with a lot less effort! Once you have the initial lettering down, the ‘calligraphy’ part is actually pretty easy – so don’t be intimidated by it, you’ll be surprised by what you can achieve! Hopefully by the end of this post, you will have an understanding of how to create beautiful lettering, and all you will need is a biro!

A Weekend in the New Forest

Beaulieu New Forest

Boy was I excited to spend the weekend away recently! I have been BUSY lately so a relaxing weekend was definitely in order. Since all of our annual leave has been used up for our Australia trip later in the year we couldn’t venture too far from home! With that in mind Craig and I headed off to the New Forest for a weekend of nature, good food and relaxation. We were pretty unlucky with the weather, it rained all weekend – but in true British spirit we weren’t going to let that ruin things for us!

Why I’m No Longer Putting Pressure On Myself To Be Thin

IMG_6829

This is a post I have been thinking about writing for a little while, and it’s going to delve a bit deeper than my usual posts. I have always had quite a tumultuous relationship with my body and how I look, as I’m sure some of you reading this will have too. I’m not all the way there yet, but I’ve been working really hard recently to start accepting my body the way it is. It’s proving to be quite the process, but I’ve learnt a lot along the way and I’m going to share some of it with you today.

My Travel Bucketlist

Travel Bucketlist

There are so many places I want to see in this world, my list is never ending. There is just something I really enjoy about seeing new places and experiencing new things. I’ve never been travelling for an extended period, but I do try and manage to get away to at least one new place each year (more if my bank account allows me!). In today’s post I thought I would share with you some of the places that are currently on the top of my list, and hopefully give some of you a bit of travel inspo too!

My Highlighter Collection

My Highlighter Collection

Highlighter is a truly wonderful thing, I think it may even be my favourite part of my makeup routine (it’s a toss up between highlighter and eyeshadow). There is something about glowing so brightly I can be seen from space that makes me feel amazing! Seeing as I love highlighter so much, I’m starting to build up quite a little collection and today I’m going to be sharing them all with you!

Navy & Blush Bedroom Inspiration

I’m currently planning to redecorate mine and Craig’s bedroom, and I am really excited to get stuck into it! At the moment it is cream with a dark purple feature wall, with rather old, tired furniture that’s on it’s last legs – it reminds me way too much of a Premier Inn and I hate it! I’ve spent many an hour on Pinterest recently, and I’ve settled on a navy and blush pink colour scheme. I just love the rich tones of the navy, contrasted with the softness of the blush pink. I would love to go as bold as the above picture, but I am not sure I’m quite brave enough so I am planning to do a slightly watered down version. I will of course share as much as I can of the redecoration process with you, so I thought I would start by sharing all my inspiration.
