Oh we match and I love it!
Took some photos with this cutie this afternoon. Taking more photos of us is something I wish we did more often, I love being able to look back at what we were doing a six months or a year ago. So hopefully there'll be more of this kind of photos up on the blog in the coming months.
Oh we match and I love it!
I thought for this Wedding Wednesday I'd give you all a little peak at my wedding notebook!
So far my favourite magazines to flick through have been You&Your Wedding and Brides, they have plenty of content and lots of real weddings of all different themes.
I have lots of cuttings from magazines. That I throw in the back of my book to look at whenever I'm thinking of making a decision about something.
I've been writing down my ideas and plans. All the things we've decided on and I've doodled next to them.
I just have a simple ring binder from WH Smiths.
Lots of floaty, chiffon dress inspiration. I'm especially in love with the one in the middle from Ti Adora.
Doodles for the entrance.
I split my book into sections and wrote down all our initial ideas for what we wanted.
We've pretty much decided on our wedding venue and just need to organise a time to go and see it officially. But from all the pictures and info we've seen we couldn't imagine anywhere more suited to us.
Wedding dress sketches.
Our aim is to do a lot of the decorations, invitations and food like desert table and drinks ourselves. Which will save us money and we'll enjoy doing at the same time.
I also started a list of music in the back of the book to write down songs I hear and love.
I keep smiling every time I look at G and remember that I get to marry that amazing man. And I know I've caught him smiling at me a few times too.
We're beyond excited and can't wait to officially start planning, booking and making.
I thought I'd do a little update on how things are at the moment seeing as how something big happened lately...
G and I got engaged!
It was magical and perfect and we weren't quite sure what to do afterwards so we took pictures.
We wandered through Jesmond Dene too, admired Autumn appearing and looked at Pets Corner with the quit adorable goats.
I adore my ring and can't stop staring at it, G did so well and I think it's about as perfect as I could have imagined.
I have tons of ideas for the big day and have started compiling them all on Pinterest (if you want to follow and see what my ideas for the wedding are click the link in the sidebar). We're both falling on a November date and hopefully in about two years once we've finished with all our commitments like university and apprenticeships and have had enough time to save up.
It will definitely be crafty and with lots of DIYs so be prepared for lots of DIY posts and updates on the planning process between my usual posts.
This is, fingers crossed, my first post of #blogtober so stay tuned for more posts!
A very excited Katy
We got a little something last week that G and I have been wanting for a while now....
She's a princess and 13 weeks old. She has G and I wrapped around her tiny paw and knows exactly how to get what she wants. She loves to play with empty things like kitchen roll tubes, empty bottles and anything she can get her paws on!
She's an angel who loves to snuggle and play and is generally crazy.
We love her oh so much.
Follow me or G on Instagram to see more of this wee one!
Hello! I hope you've all had a lovely weekend.
G and I discovered the best fruit and vegetable stall our local market so we've been going through fresh food at a crazy rate.
On Saturday we made eggs and fresh grilled vegetables. So yummy! Local food is definitely the best kind of food.
Anthropologie deliveries! YAY! I'm crazy for Anthro and there's always something I could add to my growing kitchen. This cute little egg crate has been on my wish list so thank you for my birthday discount Anthro!
We treated ourselves to a waffle maker this weekend and had such a good breakfast on Sunday! Seriously how have I survived without one of these? Try the lovely Lemon Sugar's waffle recipe for the greatest waffle ever (I promise)!
I also had fun and some down time making the sweetest DIY Hostess Apron from Stylemepretty!
Using fabric that had been looking for a home and tweaking a few things here and there I ended up with such a cute little apron I'll surely be making for everyone I know!
My pleats aren't perfect as this was actually the first time I've ever done them but I still love it! The perfect use for this fabric.
It's been a crazy Monday and feels like the week should be over already but only a few more days and I'll be (almost) free from University for the Summer!
I'm 20! Woohoo! I feel like and adult now, it's so different saying twenty and not teen anymore. I had a lovely birthday just hanging out with G, we had lunch and I used my birthday money to invest in a new DSLR camera.
I chose the Nikon D3200 after plenty of research and a couple of test runs in the shops I committed and went for it. So far it works like a dream and I'm in love with the crisp clear images I get in comparison to my iPhone.
The day after my birthday we decided to take a picnic in my new basket (my amazing parents present to me!) and catch the metro to Whitley Bay as G used to go all the time as a kid and wanted to show me the sights.
The sun was shining and it was such a lovely day, I even got my sunglasses out!
The sky was so blue and it was just lovely to be beside the sea. We were trying to walk to the lighthouse you can see in the distance, St Mary's, where G visited as a little boy. It looks a lot further than it is, we only walked about three quarters of the way there before the wind just got too cold and we headed back.
The picnic basket was a birthday present from my parents, it's all decked out with green and blue cutlery and plates/cups. It's an antique and it's so perfect I don't know how my Mum thought up something so incredible! We packed up some homemade sausage rolls and popcorn, some carrot sticks and leftover cookies and cream birthday cake (Courtesy of G!). It was delicious but freezing!
I spent forever testing my camera and getting tons of shots of the waves crashing against the walls. I always love watching this and I'm a little obsessed with the sea, I've loved it ever since I was a kid. Blame several holidays to Cornwall where I'd often wade out into the sea up to my neck and bodyboard all the time.
I loved spending the day soaking up the Vitamin D and enjoying G's week off work.
G and I are going down to Cornwall for our holidays in September and I can't wait, I actually want to learn to surf this year! If anyone has any good places to visit I'd love suggestions? I'm looking for the places that aren't on the guides, the kind of places only the locals know about?
