Which House Plant Is For You?

Over the past few years, I've acquired a rather large collection of house plants and I do love to share pictures of said house plants on Instagram/my blog/anywhere I possibly can really. One of the most frequent comments I get on any plant picture I post is 'I can never keep house plants alive', which inspired me to write this previous post and brought me onto the more specific topic I'm going to talk about now...which house plant is for you? There's no point in buying a house plant that needs watering every single day if you're going to forget and there's no point in buying one that thrives on sunlight if you live in a dark flat so this post is for any budding plant ladies out there who maybe aren't quite sure where to start out in the house plant world.

The Honeymoon Diaries | Venice

The last leg of our Italian honeymoon was Venice. Following our time in Pisa and in Florence, we imagined this part of the trip would be a bit more chilled out and in the most part it was. We still did a lot of walking and exploring, but also spent a fair amount of time in our air bnb drinking wine!

I Think I Have Fashion Block

Top - Primark | Trousers - Primark (both current) | Sandals - Asos (here)

If you're a blogger or a writer of any kind, I'm sure you're familiar with writer's block. I had a case of it earlier in the week; after attending Blog At The Beach at the weekend I was super motivated to get my blog on, but turns out I had nothing to say. Now I do have something to say though and it's about a different kind of block altogether - fashion block (doesn't have quite the same ring to it does it?).

The Honeymoon Diaries | Florence

Following on from Pisa (travel diary here) we hopped on the train to Florence, which took about an hour. We had three nights in Florence and I absolutely fell in love with the place. Here's a little (LOL as if it's going to be little and not a million words long) round up of everything we got up to:

Saving The World A Cuppa At A Time

I've always thought I'm quite good at doing my bit for the environment; I recycle everything I can, I turn lights and switches off when I'm not using them and I carry a reusable shopping bag with me. The thing is, they're actually all quite standard things now aren't they? And that got me thinking that we should always be seeking out new things we could be doing and slowly introducing them into our daily lives. With that in mind, here are some of the little things I've started implementing into mine recently:

Wedding : Where To Spend And Where To Save

It's no secret that weddings are expensive; word on the street is that the average UK wedding costs £24,000, which is more than a lot of us earn in a year. Seeing as that is the average, I'm assuming a lot of people can feasibly pay that, however for those that can't I thought I'd do a post on where we saved the big bucks as well as the areas that we did spend money on to make our day really special. This isn't necessarily a wedding on a budget post because you could definitely do it for cheaper than we did, but we tried to make it as cheap as possible while still making it our own, having it how we wanted and also making sure our guests had a nice time! Obviously, every single point in this post is subjective to what you want to do with your day, but this is what worked for us. I don't want to come across as strongly opinionated because I know from experience that it's really frustrating to read opinions on weddings when you're getting married so you do you and all that, but this is how we did us!
