Wow! Did Autumn turn up whilst my back was turned? Absolutely gutted as we'd just finished our garden ready for sunbathing and BBQs! Let's hope it's on it's way back. Here's a nice photo of a pink beach hut from a much sunnier day!
-
I had a such nice weekend regardless, I stayed OFFLINE for the vast majority of it and caught up on magazines and watched Beauty & The Beast and The Founder {highly recommend both}.

What did you get up to?

Tonight I'm out celebrating a great month with two amazing friends! 🍸 🍹 I cannot wait for a cocktail or 4!

What are your Friday night plans?

**** I totally forgot to say, last night I started working my way through @thebrand_stylist #colourforcreativesonline course and learning about what emotion different colours evoke and it has been eyeopening!! I've always rejected green on my gallery, but today I actively made sure to put a big ol green pic up! πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

Don't waste your energy on those that that don't have your back and don't be afraid to make new friends, ones who do!

I am so grateful for the amazing friends I have made on Instagram. Never did I think I would make friends on a social media platform! Instagram is like a dating app for making new girlfriends! πŸ˜‚
-
⭐️ Last night two of my friends showed up to support me at my Instagram talk! I could have kissed them both because it meant the world to me! 🌎 Just to have two people there beaming at me in the crowd. It made my heart sing! 😊

I'm still decompressing after such an awesome event and I am jaded today after such a noisy night β›ˆ but I'll be on stories later rabbiting away I'm sure! πŸ™ŠThere are some photos from last night already on there so feel free to to check them out.

Have a great Wednesday everyone, what does your day have in store? πŸ’•

Happy Sunday everyone!

What are your plans today?

I'm nursing a sore head after an impromptu wine-fest with @theguidetogrowth! 😣 I've not been drinking {at all} because of my buff bride fitness plan, so four large glasses of wine left me rather sozzled.

Today you can find me on the sofa in front of the telly with coffee. β˜•οΈ πŸ’€ #ihavethisthingwithfloors

Poor Monty was made to get up early today because Mummy needed to get up early. But unlike Monty, Mummy has a busy week and needed a jump start on it! β˜•οΈ

This doesn't just apply to business!

πŸ‘°πŸΌ Yesterday I bought my wedding outfit! As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm not a "girlie girl" and I never wear dresses and was finding the whole "bridalwear" market fussy, frilly, fro-fro, and flippin overpriced! πŸ’Έ
-
Every time I looked at a dress online or in store, I'd hear Rowan Atkinson's voice from Love Actually "Oh Madam this is so much more than a white dress, it's a white WEDDING dress" (so we'll add an extra 0 on the end). 😑
-
Anyone who knows me, knows I have no issue paying outrageous amounts of money for things. I'm a quality snob.
-
Quality shoes, quality handbags, quality holidays! But I will not pay extra for something just because that market thinks brides are so desperate for their perfect dress they'll pay crazy money (for something they'll wear once)!
-
Plus some of the ones I've picked up have not been "quality" at all!
-
My stipulation with my wedding attire was that it had to be something I'd wear again. Whether it was Β£100 or Β£1000, I had to wear it again. No one hit wonder. Oh and I had to look like me. And since I don't wear massive fro-fro dresses everyday {although at one point I did start toying with the idea of a tulle skirt} it needed to be simple, chic, classy. Oh and practical because I'd be running around New York having photos taken after the ceremony.
-
My curvy posterior restricts me with column style dresses as my bust and my butt differ by two dress sizes, so what fits in one place, won't in the other. So that ruled out all the gorgeous Ghost and Joseph silk dresses.
-
Yesterday @twobirdsbridesmaid came up trumps with a GORGEOUS off-white jumpsuit! The fact I can tie it 15+ ways means I have a variety of ways to wear it and because of its sizing it doesn't matter if I don't get to my target weight by my wedding date or even if I do, it won't be too big!! So happy!
-
I then went to Liberty's and any SATC fans will know what happened in Manolo Blahnik - yep I got "carried away". I'm getting married in New York. It would be rude not to. πŸ‘  ❀️ 🍎
-
I'm so so so happy!
-
What are your Sunday plans?

It's so flipping hot. I feel like a wilted rose today.
-
My legs have been sticking to my pleather office chair all day! 😩
-
Tomorrow, I'm heading into town to start the great hunt for something to wear for my wedding. We're getting wed in NYC in September, just us two so I'm not going to be wearing a "wedding dress". I'm already feeling really down about it though because I've tried on 20 outfits now and not found anything. But I've got an appointment tomorrow @twobirdsbridesmaid to try on a white jumpsuit. I think I'm struggling because I'm not a "dress" girl so I have everything crossed for this.
-
Any suggestions of other places to try in central London other than Selfridges, Liberty etc?

πŸ”₯ Phew it's a bit hot isn't it?
-
I do love this warm weather but it's so hard to work in it! My office got to a sweltering 29 degrees today, so I had to move down to the living room, which happens to be the coolest room. It's also the most distracting! {helllooo Netflix!}
-
✨Today I've been busy writing a talk for an upcoming event I'm speaking at. There's an error on the landing page so I can't share it at the mo, but if you're in London on the 18th July and want to come and meet me and hear me share my top tips for growing a sustainable and profitable small and mighty Instagram community then check my Instagram stories and my bio link tomorrow as I'll be adding it in!
-
It appears I gave you all a good giggle yesterday with my incorrect day! Doh! πŸ˜‚ I've set myself a thirty days of insta stories challenge. Face to camera for one clip minimum everyday! Anyone care to join me? It's really not that scary and I think it's a lot more personable than just posting to your gallery as you get to really know the person behind the pictures {and learn how they don't know the days of the week! πŸ˜‚}

How's your Monday been?
-
I started playing around with my website today and didn't realise the template I was editing was editing my live website 😱. I ended up taking the plunge and changing the template! It's a happy accident because I LOVE it and it means I can use more of my amazing brand photos taken by the lovely Katie {like this one!} My heart did sink though when I realised I'd unintentionally been hacking away at my website!
-
I hope your Monday has been good; I'm still coughing but I'm heading back to the PT tomorrow morning as that bride body isn't going to make itself - wish me luck! 😬
