Love the little things Week #13 over with Morgana, week #2 at Cool Bananas HQ
Hey, Hey! It‚Äôs Friday y‚Äôall, can I get a ‚Äòwhoop, whoop‚Äô? This week has been a mixed bag: the 3 of us are still fighting a viral infection, which has lingered for weeks now. Come awwn! Hop along & Shoo‚Ä¶. Be Gone dreaded germs! Aside the grotty nasties, I‚Äôve been a busy bunny (d‚Äôyou like that? I managed to get a reference to Easter in there-I‚Äôm on a roll!).
Back in October my Dear friend H got engaged to G in a rather extravagant & opulent way- lets just say a plane, a helicopter, Monaco & a hillside were all involved (I said opulent, right?). Shortly upon her return she asked me to be her bridesmaid (this is how she asked me & 2 more of her girlies) I could have burst with excitement!!
So keeping this in mind, this week I’ve:
If, like me when you hear ‚Äòbridesmaid‚Äô you think of the film ‚Äòbridesmaids‚Äô & wonder, ‚Äòwhich character am i?‚Äô I‚Äôm ‘Annie’ Kirsten Wig: long time, childhood best friend of H. Slightly financially poor (being a mama doesn‚Äôt pay that well!) & slightly daft as a doorknob. Believe it or not H had never watched the film, so I sent her away, popcorn in arms, for her viewing pleasure‚Ä¶she informed me that I also have the traits of ‘Megan’¬†Melissa McCartney ‚Ä¶ in that ‚ÄòYou say really funny things sometimes!‚Äô. Um, a compliment I think?! I couldn‚Äôt write this without a mention for ‘Rita’-the foul-mouthed cousin‚Ä¶ Mummy‚Äôs united?! We can all relate to her now & then!!
Blogs, blogs & more blogs! I keep meaning to treat myself to Red & Harpers Bazar Magazines; I need a glossy pick me up. Oh & these turned up on my doormat this morning:
As if I needed anymore encouragement for a ‚Äòspring‚Äô shopping spree, even if it is just a virtual one. Until the day arrives when the shops start accepting my monopoly money, I fear my Pinterest board will get a good spankin‚Äô!
It‚Äôs been around for a while, but I just adore Clean Bandit ft. Jess Glynee: Rather be.
I discovered this laydee the other day: Maya Wolff & I her new single, not quite sure on it yet, although it is growing on me. It‚Äôs more of an ‚ÄòIbiza‚Äô hit I think. What do you reckon?
Now, have you been paying attention? Do you think I‚Äôve mentioned bridesmaid enough yet? Ahh heck, here it is again! So H is getting married & as we know the obligatory Hen party must be organised. I can‚Äôt make the ‚Äòmain event‚Äô so I‚Äôve been arranging a more intimate hen day (a classy ‚Äòladies‚Äô day), which I refer to as ‚ÄòMarch Madness‚Äô, as it‚Äôs taking place tomorrow, in March-funnily enough! I won‚Äôt give anymore away as I‚Äôve got a whole post planned on it. I‚Äôm pretty arty & creative so decided to try some slightly different hen party accessories. I purchased a printable file on Esty for these ‚Äòpin up‚Äô inspired lanyards & then the other accessories & made them into these:
I used stickers & made our own personalized Chocolate bars for the favor bags.
I didn‚Äôt ‚Äòtechnically‚Äô make these- Prinster did, but I did get them made.
Well darn you weather! Just as I thought the winter coat & boots could be carefully returned to the wardrobe & stored for a few months, you‚Äôre icy cold self reared its ugly chilly head. I am most unimpressed! So, back on the winter boots went.
& In the coming weeks, I‚Äôm going to start a ‚Äòwork out‚Äô series, including ‚Äògym style‚Äô so you can expect some more of this:
I‚Äôve decided to make more of an effort to document bears fashion, because even if I do say so myself ‚Äòbaby got style‚Äô! However, he‚Äôs decided to act camera shy ‚Äòno cheese mummy. No cheese‚Äô: that‚Äôs ‚Äòcheese‚Äô of the cheesy grin variety. Instead I‚Äôve been snapping away at his outfits sans le model!
I‚Äôve such a busy weekend to look forward to & I‚Äôm really excited! It‚Äôll be the first day in a long time I‚Äôll be without bear but doing something fun rather than attending appointments. I‚Äôm also thrilled to be catching up with our friends (who we visited out in Cayman) on Sunday as they‚Äôre here visiting London (I honestly feel like a child at Christmas!). How‚Äôs your week been & what‚Äôs on the agenda for you over the weekend?
