T-shirt yarn basket

Hi Bellas

Just a super quick post for you tonight, I just wanted to share with you a T-shirt yarn crochet basket I made this evening. It is by no means perfect- but I think it is really cute! I've already had requests for a tutorial- so I may get working on that for you ;)



What do you think?


Style at home magazine

Hi Bellas

This month, something exciting happened. I featured as a 'Stylist at home' in Style at home magazine.  It's one of my favourite home style mags out there as it is super affordable and jam pack full of gorgeous homes and amazing DIY ideas. It also doesn't have the endless amount of advertisements like some of the more expensive mags have!!

If you haven't picked up your copy yet, then pop along to your local off licence and pick up the August issue.

Hope you have a lovely weekend! Grab a cuppa and have a read :)

Our engagement story

Hi Bellas!

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you may already be aware that Anthony and I got ENGAGED on our holiday in Egypt! *smiles from ear too ear* You may have read my previous post where I talked about how we have recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary.....so maybe it was a long time to wait, but I tell you what- It was well worth the wait. I was totally surprised!!

It was our first proper night of the holiday and we decided to go for something to eat at the Stonehouse Grill which was in the beach restaurant. 



The meal was absolutely gorgeous. As both of us are steak lovers, it was right up our street.

After dinner Anthony asked if I'd like to go for a walk on the beach- of course I said yes. My favourite thing about Egypt (apart from the weather!) is the fact that you can see so many stars at night. It's absolutely amazing to see- even more so in the Sinai desert.

We walked down to the beach and there were two deck chairs by the sea. I sat down and before I knew it, Anthony grabbed my hands fell down to one knee and asked me to marry him!! Obviously more was said- but I shall keep that between us two :)
I CRIED like a girl...happy tears of course. It was the most amazing moment of my life and I was over the moon to accept his proposal. I couldn't have imagined a better setting for a proposal!

A few nights after when we were feeling better lol
We decided to make our way across the road from the hotel and went to an 'English pub' and had the closest thing the had to champagne, well we had two bottles to be precise! We then got talking to other holiday makers who kept getting us more drinks. Before we knew it, it was 3am and we stumbled our way back to the hotel. Neither of us are heavy drinkers so this is quite unusual for us.

Although we were on top of the world the next day, we were a little worse for wear! haha.

The rest of the holiday was an absolute dream. It felt like the bond we share together somehow got even stronger. We are both very excited to tie the knot and we hope to do so next August!

When we arrived home, we were greeted by flowers, cards and banners which felt amazing. 






I will be doing another blog post with some more pics of the rest of the holiday, so make sure you check back to have a look (or follow if you don't already to stay up to day with more posts!)
