Thrifty Crafts

So recently I called into my local Poundland (as I do most days) and discovered that they have a whole new range of crafty wonders!

There was loads of different stuff and for £1 each, it's hard to pass up!

I picked myself up a few wee bits and bobs and can't wait to get making something awesome :) so get yourself down to Poundland and pick yourself up some craft bargains.

Interior Obsessions

So the husband and I (husband finally, yay!) are currently looking for a new home. We live in the tiniest one bedroom flat and while it's slightly suitable for us and the kitties, we appear to have more guests than usual so feel we need some extra room. We are looking for maybe 1 or 2 more bedrooms and a garden...must have a garden!

I've always thought that the more you grow up, your house should look...well, more grown up. Despite actually hating the bland cream walls and matching EVERYTHING I just thought this is how it goes. The husband convinced me the last time we decorated that the house should reflect what we like and this has resulted in a colourful mismatched wonderland (I have moustaches painted on my bathroom wall and everything!)

So...this has got me looking up some ideas for the new place (when we finally find it). My goal is colours, mismatches, fairy lights and a hint of vintage thrown in.

Currently Loving: Zooey Dechanel

So, I recently started watching New Girl (behind the times, I know) and I must say I LOVE it. I actually can't wait to get home from work, relax and get my fix. It's one of those shows which is just silly and fun.
Its made me begin to love Zooey Deschannel (or maybe more Jess? I'm one of those people who falls in love with a character...she's my new Ghost Whisper's Melinda Gordon :-/). Anyway...I just love her little quirky style and think it's something to aspire to (I honestly dress like I got ready in a hurry)'s also making me like my glecks a wee bit more and feel I should embrace them rather than hide behind contact lenses all the time...

The Heat Is On!

So...come Saturday it is 12 WEEKS until the wedding and the panic has set in!

We still don't have a photographer, a DJ, completed decorations, the other halfs suit, bridesmaids accessories, wedding rings, transport...a list of what we do have would be shorter!

I just realised today that the invitations need to be sent out in a matter of weeks (luckily they are done and just need printed!).

My advice to anyone planning to do this on a budget and DIY would

be plan ahead...plan, plan, PLAN! 

I'm sure it'll be alright on the night...right?
