Pinterest Weekly - Friday Favourites

Leave a Comment




1. Anchor feature wall by A Beautiful Mess
2. Cute playhouse in a children's bedroom
3. Huge Miffy lamp
4. DIY hanging pyramids

Pinterest can get so addictive! You can spend hours looking through so many pretty pictures and I'm nearly at a 1,000 pins haha! I'm loving the feature wall the most and its definitely something I would love to do in our future home. 

Today I met up with my friend Michelle and her son Storm who I haven't seen in years. We went to one of my favourite little places called Cafe Coco for a milkshake and a slice of homemade cake. It was so lovely to have a catch up and I plan on going to visit them next week.

Yesterday Paul and I finally got our wedding licence!! That's another thing to tick off the list of things to get done for the wedding. I'm going to be doing some more crafting tonight for the decorations. I'm starting to get butterflies in my tummy as its just over 8 weeks away now! :)

Happy Friday everyone!

Today has been so beautiful outside, the warmth on your bare legs and a slight breeze in the shade. Perfect. I finally was able to dig out my pretty summer dresses and actually wear one without tights woo! 

I went to visit one of my best friends and her little girls today for a stroll around the fields near by. Whilst Keri-Anne was taking photos, me and the girls went to look at the cows that were in the next field. We decided to lay on the grass (away from the cows) and gaze at the clear blue sky whilst listening to the birds that were flying over us. Elle wanted to show me her little place she calls the Fairy Woods. I did a little video on Vine, if you have it look up my profile under Lulus Wonderland to take a peek. On our way back we stopped in at our local supermarket to get some ice cream. After our yummy treat I took a slow walk home taking in today's weather, there's something about warmer days that makes everyone around us more happy. I thrive happiness and today has been a good day :)

Have a wonderful evening everyone!

Much love

Hello Beautiful

I'm excited to share the news of a great organization I'm a part of to help spread the word of women empowerment. Speak Now is here to raise awareness about an issue that happens everyday in young women. I for one was one of those who struggled at secondary school after suffering from bad acne. I never had anything like Speak Now growing up as a teenager and this is something I feel strongly about sharing with many others.

Body image and self-esteem issues go unspoken, Speak Now is here to listen and to let you know you're not alone.

Join us and Save May 8th 2013 in your diary! Link up your blog here, spread the word, and tell your friends about Speak Now.

Much love

Weekend Sunshine

2 comments

This weekend the weather has been delightful and it was so lovely to spend time with Paul in the sunshine. We got up early Saturday to go for a veggie breakfast which was yummy and then went for a walk around town. Paul tried on a few suits to get an idea of what hes after for the wedding and we found one we both loved! He looked so handsome in the suit he chose, all we need to get now is a shirt, tie and shoes. Later that afternoon we finalized the wedding cake details and I'm really happy with what we decided, plus there's going to be a little surprise for our guests :) 

In the evening we had our friends over for dinner, I cooked chicken risotto for them and quorn chicken risotto for us. We chatted for ages whilst enjoying our dinner and then had vanilla cheesecake for dessert. Afterwards we took a stroll to a local pub for a drink but ended up not staying long because the music was far too loud!

Today we had a lazy morning having cuddles with Sookie before getting ready to head out for our Starbucks Sunday date. We try and go every other Sunday as a little treat. We shared a soya chai latte and a croissant whilst talking about what else we need to tick off our list of things to do. As we made our way home we stopped by to take a few photos. This evening we finally watched Gangster Squad and it was awesome! I love a bit of Gosling hehe!

I hope you all enjoyed the warmer, sunnier weather and had a lovely weekend!

Much love

This weekend we have a few things planned and I couldn't be more excited about spending time with my fiance Paul. Tomorrow we're going for a yummy cheap veggie breakfast in the morning, we have our friend coming round to discuss more details on our wedding cakes and then in the evening we have my maid of honor and her boyfriend coming round for dinner. Sunday we're going on a Starbucks Date as we haven't been for a few weeks and then have a look around the shops close by. I still have a few crafty things to purchase for the wedding so I'll be keeping an eye out for bits I need. 

Lately I've been feeling rather lucky to have such lovely loyal readers and I just want every single one of you to know how much I appreciate you visiting and leaving comments on my blog :) Thank you so so much!!

Whats In My Bag?

2 comments

I'm one of those girls that has a few bags and depending on what I'm wearing, the weather or what I'm doing I change my bag regularly. This week I've been using my favourite tote bag I got as a birthday present a few years back. Its made from thick material with two lengths of straps so can hold a lot without it being stretched out plus its covered in cupcakes! If you know me well you'll know I'm a huge cupcake fan and not just the eating kind! Heres whats always in my bag -
  • Glasses case
  • Intensive lip balm
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Hello Kitty card holder
  • Leopard print purse by Alphabet bags
  • Impulse body spray
  • Tissues
  • Diary with pen
  • Notepad for wedding and blogging ideas/lists
  • House keys
The only thing not pictured is my iPhone and Nikon camera as I usually have those in my pocket/around my neck. These are my essentials I always carry with me and I'm lost without them. Do you have certain items you always carry in your bag?

Much love

Don't forget you have until the 23rd April to enter the amazing giveaway I'm a part of here!

2. Love these ceramic cups by RossLab
3. Beige fifties handmade dress by Mrs Pomeranz
4. Pale blue suitcases by The White Pepper


I can't believe how quick this year is going and that we're nearly half way through April! It only seems like yesterday that we were celebrating the new year. Crazy how time flies as you get older and to treasure every single day. I'm happy that the sun is starting to stay out a bit more and the wind is calming down. Its lovely and sunny outside today but haven't had the chance to go out in it yet. Fingers crossed it gets warmer the closer we get to June!

Wedding planning is coming along and I've been walking round in circles today trying to figure out what to do next. I decided to tidy up my 'craft corner' and get it more organized. This way I'll know where everything is so that when I get spare time I can get on with wedding crafts.Tonight I'm going to try making some props for our DIY photo booth. Wish me luck haha!

Enjoy your day my lovely readers :) 

Much love

Sookie Sunday

8 comments

I thought I'd introduce a new feature called Sookie Sundays where I'll post about our kitty cat Sookie. This little lady is in Paul's bad books today after an incident this morning. Paul and I were sleeping on the sofa bed and got woken up early by a loud bang. Paul shot up to see what the noise was and it turns out Sookie was in the window having a melt down. Paul tried to see why she was going crazy and it turns out a cat was sitting outside staring at her! Paul went to move her away from the window but Sookie then turned and went mad! Ive never ever seen Sookie go so crazy and she ended up hurting him :(

Sookie is a house cat so doesn't go outside and hasn't been in contact with any other cats. In our old house we had a ginger cat we named Ginge that would come and say hello. Sookie loved getting the attention and would show off on the window ledge. It was all so strange when she went mad this morning at a cat that was just sitting on the floor outside. I guess Sookie was trying to protect Paul from the cat outside. I'm still in shock Sookie growled, clawed and bit Paul as thats just not in her character to do so. Sookie has been trying to comfort Paul all day by rolling around his feet for him to stroke her belly or jump onto his lap for a cuddle.

I guess it'll take a day or so for Paul to forgive Sookie but I know deep down Sookie didn't mean too!

I hope your all having a wonderful Sunday! We're currently watching The Hobbit and I have to say I'm really enjoying it so far :)

Much love
Lulu xx

P.S I'm so excited for tomorrow blog post! Keep your eyes peeled!!

Its no secret that Paul & I want to have children in the next year or so. We already have names chosen and I dream most nights of having a baby. I have this board on Pinterest to gather ideas for our little ones whenever we may have them. Pretty much all of them are for little girls, maybe it'll be a sign!

2. Little person bedroom
3. Kitty print dress!!!
4. Pretty things for a little girls bedroom
5. Adorable brogues from Zara kids
6. Perfect pinafore mint dress

Growing up being the eldest I've always loved kids and love it so much when my 4 year old sister comes to stay with us. I cant wait to be married and then can start thinking about baby planning yayyy!!!

This week has gone by so quickly and I'm looking forward to a relaxed weekend. Paul's Mum has been in hospital so I've been visiting her everyday (shes fine by the way, just a minor op). I also woke up with a full blown cold yesterday so I've been stocking up on my vitamins and cough medicine. Tonight I've organized a little get together for a dear friend of mine that's back from traveling. I haven't seen my friend Louise since 2011 and I'm super excited to see her and hear about all the adventures :)

Do you have much planned for tonight or this coming weekend?

Much love
Lulu xx
