On Wednesdays we wear pink (Or, ahem, Saturdays)! There, two complete pink related cliches in one post for you! 😉 When it’s a spring day, the sun is out and all you want to do is run around outside in a teeny dress and bare feet, you can bet that’s not the sensible thing to do. Today the sun was out just, it had rained yesterday and there was a chill in the air. If I followed my somewhat (read: very) rose-tinted plans, it would cue me shivering and likely with muddy toes. It’s obvious and I’ll admit it, I’m desperate for summer (I’ve even been eyeing up swimsuits from george at asda when grocery shopping – yes really).

So anyway, sensible Emily donned tights and a jumper but brightened the whole affair with cream shorts and this little fuschia number from Missguided. It’s a win win when keeping warm looks chic 😉

Wandering around a local country park (‘cos you all know I love to be outside), swooning over the blossom appearing from branches, watching the water pass under the bridge and children with water toys paddling along, plus peering over the wall of the orangerie trying to catch a sight of how majestic it once was. Throw in a flask of tea and strawberries straight from the punnet, and that calls for a pretty dandy day. Don’t you think? x

SAVE THE DATE! CREATING YOUR OWN

creative save the date invitations

My oh my, how the six month mark has crept up upon us! Seeing as September 20th is only a stones throw away, be prepared for sneak peeks in to our wedding plans and getting in on all the excitement from the comfort of your bed/sofa/*insert current location here*. As it seems a rather appropraite place to start, I present to you our save the dates! We always knew we wanted to make everything ourself and these cards were no exception. If you’re wondering how to make your own save the dates, or are looking for some save the date inspiration then you’ve come to the right place.

Asking a dear friend to take a trip with us to a nearby woods for a picnic with my polaroid camera in tow, our image was captured (plus my finger prints added, whoops) and the rest came to me as I sat at my iMac. Being a dab hand with photoshop and design in general (even if I do say so myself), I managed to whip these up in a jiffy, with Rich keeping the teapot filled and giving his opinion where needed.

I had them printed by Moo.com as postcards, because you can be sure of the fabulous quality and the service is second to none. I never questioned which company would print them as I’ve used Moo for my business cards time and time again. I would recommend them to any of you looking for save the date postcards or new blog business cards! As a little treat to you guys, if you click this link you can get 10% off on anything you orderdon’t say I never treat you!

Inside our save the date envelopes, we included some heart shaped sequins (because who doesn’t like being showered with glittery goodness) and for the special people in our life, hand-stamped luggage tags asking them to be bridesmaids or groomsmen (read: my hands were covered in ink for days afterwards). We sealed them with some striped washi tape (decorative stationary lovers unite) and popped them in the post and through doors. We didn’t have to wait patiently for long before squeals of excitement met us!

It had been our plan from the start to keep our wedding date a firm secret until our save the dates went out, to surprise all of our loved ones with something in the post rather than them hearing it in coversation. If you’re looking for creative ways to ask your bridesmaids and groomsmen to be involved, we would wholeheartedly recommend this – ours got a double whammy of excitement with the wedding date and asking to be involved all at once! Now, I’d better start designing our actual invitations! 😉 x

Sometimes the more casual outfits are the best. Whenever I’m asked what my ‘go-to’ look is, I’ll always say jeans, a striped top and a slick of red lipstick. Usually, it’s a breton-striped tee, but on this occasion it’s a cute red and white spring jumper instead. In my books, stripes = good. Even better when they match the colour of your shoes. 😉

My clover necklace that I had happened to have slept in, rather appropriately matched my jumper (okay, it’s not quite a flower, but near enough) and happens to be my new favourite. I’m all for symbolic jewellery and positive affirmations, so hopefully my clover will bring me luck and the engraved ‘Imagine’ heart adorning my wrist will help keep those creative juices flowing. Anna Lou eye candy galore, huh?!

Taken somewhat early in the morning, during a stroll down a country lane where we had parked towards a carboot sale (hallelujah, I had been getting serious withdrawal symptoms). The first of the year, no less! My favourite Sunday morning past time, I had restraint and purchased no goodies for me as I’ve just forked out on some gorgeous floral bedding from Joules. Instead, this week it was in favour of starting to collect some knick-knacks for our wedding, but more on that later! x
