The 1st October is a very strange date for me, it is filled with a whole range of emotions.

First of all it is my beautiful mums birthday. My mum is just the best person, she has dealt with so much and still always worries about, cares about and looks after other people before herself. She has always been this way and I can never see her changing.

The Importance Of Having An Online Presence*

As a blogger I know how important it is to have an online presence. Your website is important as it gives people an insight into what your blog/business is all about. I am still relatively new and by no means an expert, but in the world of blogging there a lot of blogs out there, so it's important your page stands out in some way.

When I first started I struggled to find what I wanted my page to look like, luckily, I had my sisters and cousin to help who are also bloggers. But if anyone needs help with web design there are a lot of companies around to help. In this post I am going to be talking about one such company, Silky Ocean Studios.

Wedding Decorations Wishlist*

Recently I spoke about my ideal wedding venue. I love thinking about when I get married and what I would plan. It is so important to make sure your wedding is a lovely day, no matter what your budget or style is. Everyone has different tastes so you should always pick decorations that you like and not what you think others will like. So once everything is arranged you can just sit back and enjoy your big day without worrying. I had a look through Confetti’s site and picked my favourites and what would be going on my wedding wish list. For me the small things add up to the whole experience.
