Wedding Fair

So having got engaged between Christmas and New year I saw this as a perfect opportunity to have a girls day out with my mum! She came up to London and we went to the Wedding Fair in the Excel!

It was interesting to say the least, we went along on the Saturday, hoping to have our minds filled with inspiration and new ideas. The morning was so busy we found the show very un inspiring and chaotic, not what we expected at all. Slightly disappointed, we decided to grab some lunch, and then go back into the show with fresh eyes and head to the catwalk. The afternoon was so much more interesting mainly, because the show itself had quietened down and we were able to walk around the show properly. The catwalk was great fun and we got some good Wedding Dress inspiration.

A few things I am going to look into next time is, what stall holders will be at the exhibition ( the wedding fair seemed to have lots of teeth whitening, facial products and skin care), and what do I need to get out of going to the Exhibition. All in all we had a good day out, but think we will re-think what wedding fairs we go to before heading to one again.

So my top tip is: Do your research!

Long time..no speak

It’s been a while since I wrote my last blog post, these past few weeks, months even, have been jam packed with activities.

Here are some of the things I have been upto and exploring and things I really recommend to add to that bucket list;

1. GLASTONBURY

This contemporary arts festival is one of a kind and is really out of this world, this is my second glastonbury and I can’t recommend enough everyone trying to get tickets (I know it’s hard). There is always something to see or do, no matter what time of night or day…

Here’s a cheeky snap of me in fancy dress one night with some of the glastonbury lights behind me

2. BEACH DAY IN BOURNEMOUTH

With such beautiful English weather, I took the opportunity to head down to Bournemouth to see my family and enjoy a beautiful day on the beach, starting off with some piña coladas with my mum on the pier and ending up in the sea with my little brother the day could not have been any more perfect! If you get the chance to enjoy some of the gorgeous weather down there and love a cocktail, definitely head to Aruba for stunning views and delicious cocktails

southern soldiers

3. SCAVENGER HUNT

This is something I have done this weekend, so much fun and a must if you get the opportunity. Khrissie, our ‘Sergeant’ for the day was invited to take part in a scavenger hunt organised by Contiki holidays. Khrissie then recruited myself and 5 others to be part of ‘The Southern Soldiers’ . Being given clues to places around London we set off to get our photos taken with as many of these clues as possible. It was a great laugh and we got to discover so much that we would have never known about had we not done the hunt! Unfortunately we didn’t win but we had so much fun in the process the winning for me was the taking part.

And last but not least…

4. RUNNING

With the tube strikes last week, it was time to get my running trainers on again after a busy few weeks. Out came the trainers as I took to the streets of London on foot to beat the traffic. It’s a great way to see London, travel around London and enjoy the sunshine.

While the weathers still nice, get out there and explore, the world is your oyster!
