T's gonna let me wear navy blue!

Yippee! I contemplated  different colours and dresses and shapes but I was always drawn to the SarahSeven (on Midnight Stroll. Its still a bloody long time til my wedding (while people who got engaged after me are storming away with their plans...)and I will change my mind millions of time but for now its settled. In the mean time no movement on the plans, and seen as I have loads on my mind re: giving up my job to go freelance I think I will not be thinking on it for a while. So I will be dipping in and out of here but keep the plans as they are for now.

whats been going on....erm...?

I was sitting at the computer for about 10 minutes staring at the screen and thinking - what the fuck have i been doing lately... well i guess i have mostly been preparing for my upcoming unemployment and starting my own little business... the business of freelancing and doing fun things with paper... it all seems like so much fun right now but i can't see how much i can actually make from it - i mean a girl gots to eat right? I think i could do with loosing a few lbs but not starvation...mmmm... got the royal hump this morning.... more wedding stuff when i can be arsed...

ps its a year since we got engaged on tuesday and i don't feel like i'm any closer to this stupid fucking wedding and its annoying  - i just want to marry T & get one with the rest of our lives, if he wasn't insisting on us having a small but proper wedding we would have been hitched by now... I know gretna green ent as glamorous as vegas but whatev's...

Oh also...

Anyone been to/heard of/like the sound of Elizabeth NY?

It looks like a lovely reception site, I love the back room and the menu looks great - real good food!

I haven't spoken to them yet but I think I'll email them this week! Found it on a foody website - I think thats a good place to start!

things on net-a-porter

i thought after my last post that i might have a little look to see if there were anymore delights in the world of internet this evening...and there were! Whoop!

On another note which I forgot to mention earlier - I am growing some lovely flowers in my front garden and they are about to flower when I do I'll post em up! Peonies and Ranunculus...! YUM!

hey-yo... its been a while

I quit my job! Yippee! I am doing things all by my self and I am excited at the prospect... I'll keep you posted...

In the mean time we are cutting back on our New York wedding because I think it was getting away from us - we always wanted simple and suddenly it got way too much, we want a super sonic quick reception and then some really good food and a few cocktails, why have all the rest of the fuss eh?

But one thing I don't really want to compromise on is my shoes!

First are from Tatty Devine - absolute stunners and only £120 bucks? Think they'd look lush with a beige cocktail dress...

Second are from the powerhouse Chanel... these are amazing. I want them so bad I might sell a kidney.

 I'll try to do this a bit more often, if nothing else its mega theraputic!
