Big News....

So...this week saw the first of my double wedding bonanza and it was beautiful.

It was in a gorgeous church and then a stunning manor house and I have to say that all of us looked fabulous.

However the day was slightly marred by the boys....not just mine but all of them. It turns out that five hours of cheesy music does not a happy boyfriend make.

The next day I was still slightly put out by the situation so the boy took me off for a day sightseeing (I bloody love being a tourist) in order to cheer me up.

The day was perfect and upon returning home he was completely forgiven.

We then got on to the subject of weddings and how I would like a big diamond ring...I jokingly told him to go and make me one out of tin foil and then I would think about he went and then came back into the room and told me to close my eyes so I can have my made ring.....but....when I opend my eyes he was on one knee....WITH THIS RING....

BLOODY is from the 1930's and even has the original inscription in it.

Obviously I said yes.....after alot of tears though.

So...I am now I fully grown up lady....and it does go to show that mentioning weddings/marraige everyday for around a year!!

Wedding fever...

In the next seven days I have two weddings....both of whom involve the same group of girlfriends so we are all very excited indeed.

I have been eating healthily, not drinking very much and generally looking after my body in a bid to look fabulous for both events...that is until my good friend Alice visited me on Saturday and we drank three bottles of wine and then the boy came home yesterday from a weekend away and we ate pizza and ice cream...oh dear.

The only issue I have had with having the weddings so close together is the fact I had to find two dresses.

Now this in itself is not a problem but as I like a dance (especially after a few drinks) and I am not a regular high heel wearer the dresses I always were to weddings are full length so I can wear pretty little sandals and dance the night away.

I thought I would have to pay a ridiculous amount of money to find a maxi dress nice enough to carry me through from day to evening but I was wrong...

..this dress being worn by the delicious Kylie Minogue is my actual was £39.99 from H&M and looks really beautiful on. It also comes in olive green and cream with a black and red pattern (totally amazing and I would have got that one as well but they didn't have it in my size).

I will be teaming it with sandals from Accessorize which were £35 and earrings from Monsoon which were £12.

Best this about it all is that the dress is not too weddingy so I can wear it again in a more casual way ala Kylie Minogue...!!
