This week, I struggled to think of topics beginning with 'E' for my A-Z. The Boy and I had a bit of brainstorm walking to the cinema last night, quickly deciding that 'elegance' was the way to go. For fun, here's a selection of other ideas: Exercise - because I've been doing a bit (and… Continue reading E is for elegance: The A-Z of a vintage girl in a modern world
I am beyond excited to tell you the wedding photos are in! Lina & Tom have done an absolutely marvellous job, and if you'd like to view our wedding in all its glory (including an incredibly attractive face from me...I won't tell you which photo, but it's near the start of the ceremony section), you… Continue reading Times change and so must I.
This week, after four and a half years, I left my job. Not, I hasten to add, because I've gone full on 1950s and given up work as I'm now married, but because I have a very exciting new job, in a whole new industry, that I start tomorrow. Because why do one big thing… Continue reading The wedding – 2 weeks on
I thought you guys deserved a bonus post this week! The Boy and I were chatting about my last post, and wanted to show what it's like for a groom in the lead up to a wedding. So, while I was pampering, preening and packing, here's what The Boy got up to in the few… Continue reading Meanwhile, The Boy did his own preparations…
Today marks eight whole days since I married the love of my life, and it's been just wonderful. We went to Bath for a few days, where we walked around in the rain, drank tea and ate cake (or, in The Boy's case, bath buns), and generally had a lovely, relaxing time. Now we're back… Continue reading I married The Boy – 1 week on
Five days to go! Here are some little teasers about the bride...
With only four weeks left until the wedding, it's time for the hen and stag parties! The Boy's surprise trip is next weekend (I'll be taking the opportunity to make centrepieces, assemble cake stands and catch up on Bridezillas), but this weekend was my turn! My sister, Kates, had planned the entire thing, and kept… Continue reading A truly glorious hen party – 4 weeks to go

But then you can't sit X next to ABCDE or F either..." (which begs the question, why are you inviting X at all… Continue reading In conversation with The Boy – 5 weeks to go
Happy Sunday everyone! It's a bank holiday in the UK this weekend, which means we get Monday off, hurrah! As a bank holiday treat, The Boy is going to answer the burning questions of some of my lovely readers (disclaimer: some of these names are pseudonyms) (additional disclaimer: so are some of the questions) (additional… Continue reading Ask The Boy – 38 weeks to go
I'm a bit late in posting this week (apologies, I'm sure you've all been on the edgeof your seats), but I was at a (marvellous) hen do in Brighton, and needed a bit of a lie-down when I got in. I blame the hula-hooping. Yes, there was hula hooping. More to come on the hen… Continue reading Geronimo! And some spoilers – 42 weeks to go
