Hey folks! I hope you’re enjoying the…..ummmm….sunshine? Seriously, where has the sun disappeared off to this week….just when we were getting used to its warm sunny rays. Anyhooo, I hope this fun DIY will still bring a bit of summery cheer to all you folk in the UK

So, my second DIY for Laura Ashley‘s ‘Make & Do’ wedding series is now up on their blog. I’m showing you how to make this fun LOVE sign for your summer wedding; whether you want to jazz up your dessert table or use as a prop for your wedding photography….the choice is really yours. To be honest, you can make this for any occasion really especially if, like me, you have a thang for all things ice creams and popsicles!!

You’ll find the full tutorial here, where I’ve even given you guys templates to work with (so even less work!!). I hope you have fun with this one and I’ll be back for more in the coming summer months so do stay tuned! Oh and if you want to take a look at the last DIY on how to make floral place settings out of wallpaper, you’ll find more meets here. Enjoy lovelies!! xx

Sunshine in the City!

I don’t know about you but I thoroughly enjoyed my Bank Holiday weekend where I felt like I actually had time to do things aside from work and chores! Okay, so I did a bit in the evenings… nevertheless, I managed to find more time to do things I enjoy like exploring bits of London, checking out small independent galleries and weekend markets, doing a bit of craft work, finding time to socialise with friends (some new ones too! I finally met the lovely Michelle from Fox In The Attic over coffee…followed by vino) and most importantly….catching up on some ‘us‘ time with the hubby (seeing as we had been both working stupid late hours over the last couple of weeks – him more so than me that I barely saw him!) by going out for dinners, long walks and even cycling in the sunshine! This was the first time in a long while where I felt like I had a weekend….and more to the point…..a life! ;)

So here’es a peek into some of the things I did over the weekend. How did you spend your bank holiday weekend? xx
