It’s Friday and that’s the best day of the week in my view. I’m very excited about the weekend ahead. My sister, who just got engaged (squeal) is coming home for the weekend and we are going to celebrate, big time! But before I close out the week, I’ve decided to share my week in review from Instagram.

I’m thinking of doing this every Friday from now on so please let me know your thoughts and whether you enjoy seeing my pictures. I am by no means the best photographer in the world, but I love pretty pictures, and am completely obsessed with Instagram. Oh, and if you want to come follow me there (please do), you can do so by clicking here.

Anyway here’s a look back over my Instagram week…


If you read my review on the new restaurant Angelina’s yesterday, you’ll know that this is where I spent a lot of my evening and night last Saturday. Chatting with the girls, eating delicious food and sipping on prosecco. What more could a girl ask for?!


Given said evening and night of alcohol on Saturday, Sunday was spent mostly in bed, in my pyjamas, blogging, reading and Pinterest pinning. This was a good day.


A little Monday Motivation goes a long way, and I came across this cute picture on Pinterest so had to share it. Coffee is definitely what we all need to get us through Monday!

It was also a freezing cold day on Monday, but dreaming of warmer days I donned my ballerina pumps with my skinny jeans.


I love playing around with makeup as you may already know, so on Tuesday I shared one of my favourite makeup looks, a golden smokey eye paired with one of my go-to lipstick shades, Dark Side from MAC. This is look I went for on my girls night out last Saturday.


My gorgeous gold Gorjana necklace, need I say more?!

I’m a big book lover, book worm, bibliophile – there are many ways to describe my love of books. When I came across this photo on Twitter I just had to share it. It encapsulates so many of my favourite things, summer, flowy dresses, and reading.


I recently shared a sneak peak of my wedding photos with you all, and yesterday I shared a Throw Back Thursday snap to one of my favourite wedding pictures. Now, I know I’ve promised you all a full wedding photography post and it’s coming, I swear! I’m just waiting on the USB to arrive from my photographer so I can share some of the images with you all.

But for now this will have to suffice. Oh how I wish I could do it all over again…

When I came home yesterday evening, I took out my happiness planner and entered my comments for the day. I love this happiness planner I got recently, if you’d like to know more about it you can read my full happiness planner post here.

My hubby and I are currently looking at redecorating some rooms so, as I so often do, I was looking up some inspiration on Houzz and Pinterest. How gorgeous is this living room? Exactly my style, soft tones, grey couch and a picture wall. I just had to share it.


My love for neck pieces is unwavering! Today I’ve opted for this spiked monochrome chunky neckpiece from Topshop. Perfect match to my knit black jumper.

So there you go! I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, please let me know your thoughts.

Oh and, Happy Friday! 🙂

Cosy Candle Sundays

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen me share a picture of a Wonderwick Noir candle from the Country Candle Company a few days ago. I came to have this candle by accident really – I had bought some candles as gifts for all my lovely friends who came to celebrate my hen party a while back. There was a slight mix-up with my order however, so as an apology, the company very kindly sent me three candles from their Wonderwick Noir, Bloomsbury and Superstars collections in December.


As a serious candle addict, I am always on the look out for new candles. I go through candles quicker than I go through anything else, in fact, if I was to add up the amount I go through in a month let alone a year, I think I’d be in for a serious shock. But it’s love what can I say…!

Although all three candles are nice, it’s not very often I come across a new candle that stacks up against my old favorites, but the Wonderwick Noir candle in Spiced Lime is AMAZE. Apart from its sleek design, the scent is divine and the burn is brilliant. The candle’s wooden wicks claim to ‘throw the scent further, faster‘ and I have to say our living room smells amazing when it’s lighting – so far, so good. Aside from that, many candles claim to have long burn times but only burn down the centre leaving so much unmelted wax behind. This is a serious pet peeve of mine! But I was pleasantly surprised to find this candle burns evenly down its glass container. I’m loving it, so much so, I’m only lighting it for short periods of time so it doesn’t burn out too quickly.

If you’re a candle addict like me then this is one definitely worth checking out. Perfect for a cosy Sunday on the couch, which is exactly how I plan on spending my Sunday today while I nurse my flu.

Hope you’re all having a lovely cosy Sunday too!
