You don't need money to be stylish part 2

The tables and centre pieces for my wedding!







It's been a year since I wrote "you don't need Money to be stylish", which was a post on charity shops. I had such a great response to this and lots of you loved the idea that my now husband converted me into a charity shop bargain hunter ha ha ha. Since then we've had our daughter and gotten married, during both of these times we're still all about saving! during the planning of our wedding we wanted a rustic/hobbit themed wedding (don't worry we didn't dress up as hobbits) we also wanted to use our money wisely and not break the bank! 

Tables & The centre pieces: we opted for wild-like flowers which were all bought from Morrisons! The bunches come to £1.20 each (bought 6) used for 4 tables and the head table. We bought the crystal glass bottles from poundland ,at obviously, £1 per bottle (10 bottles ).the table numbers were from the works that came in a pack of 4 for £1, all the artificial flowers on the tables and pined on the beams were all really cheap at only £1 per line of 2 metres. The brown mats which are actually the coconut lining for hanging baskets they were £1 for 2 (4 bought) we also scattered dried flowers on all the tables which come from the card factory in a box at £1 each (bought 8) as you can see a wedding doesn't have to be expensive! 

Total cost of our table settings and head table:£60 
Provided by the venue: the linen for the tables, cutlery  dishes, glasses etc. 
Tips:  Brainstorm, plan, shop around, compare prices, go on Pinterest for ideas.

I hope you enjoyed the read 
Lots of love

Jane Eyre at The Mayflower theatre

A night at the theatre with @sotonbloggers 




I've always been a theatre lover and I've seen many shows at the Mayflower theatre over the years, so when I was invited to see Sally cooksons new adaptation of Charlotte bronte's novel Jayne eyre last night, I had to be there. We were given Great seats where we sat comfortably waiting for the show to begin. I honestly had no idea what to expect on this "new take" of the novel, it was also a great time to announce the tour as 2017 is the 170th anniversary of when Jane eyre was first published. the highly acclaimed co-production between the national theatre and the Bristol old vic. 
Jayne Eyre, played by the amazingly talented Nadia Cliford, shows her beginnings as a destitute orphan overcomes life's obstacles from surviving poverty, injustice, betrayal and the ultimate decisions on following her heart. While others may of found the thought of Jayne Eyre on stage might not of been their cup of tea I can honestly say…

Rainy Day Toddler Activities

Rainy day toddler activities,






 Due to the weather recently turning into the typical none existent summer, the rain is back, and in full force! For me this is really hard as I take poppy on walks every morning. When it's terrible weather though I like to keep her cosy in the warm. I've been getting some inspiration through Pinterest and one of them was this cute little idea. All you need is play-dough, food skewers, Cheerios and a child friendly surface. 
This project helps with their Learning colours, numbers, hand-eye coordination, patience and eating (the Cheerios, not the play-dough) at the same time. Poppy really enjoyed this project, you could see her concentration face was really adorable it also helps her speech as she was saying a few colours without us prompting her.  Honestly give this a go with your little ones, it's pretty fun.

Hope you enjoyed read
