My Favorite New Fashion Finds

Today I'm taking fashion. It's been a little while since I talked about clothes on the blog (probably because my mind had been a little pre-occupied with wedding-related sartorial decisions!) so here I am to collect together a few trends I've been loving recently.

It's the season of velvet, slouchy knits and ankle boots and I have found some wonderful classic winter pieces as well as a few slightly stranger items that I think are just as cool.

Styling Up a Small Sofa

As you may know, I live in a very small flat. We have a bedroom, bathroom and an open plan kitchen and living room which is also where my work area is. It can be quite a challenge to squeeze in everything that we need and want. Our latest big change to the living room is the sofa, what a difference a stylish seating area can make!

How To Create a Pretty Halloween Display

Over the summer Simon and I decided to redecorate our living room (have a look at the post here) and update it a little bit. In the past, we had quite a lot of orange elements in the room which has now been updated to a much softer peachy pink. Our living space used to look quite 70s with a lot of jewel tones and darker colours but now it's much lighter and a little bit more Boho. All this means that the standard orange pumpkins and Halloween decorations no longer really suit our breezy and pretty living room. I was really struggling to think of a way to add a Halloween touch to the decor in our open plan living space this year but I think I managed to create a pretty rather than spooky display.

Perfect Prints For a Bedroom

Finding artwork for your home can be quite a challenge. I've discovered that I can be quite fussy with what I pop up on my walls but as art should express your personality and help set the tone of the room maybe that's not so surprising.  Simon and I usually agree with regards to the design of our home but sometimes we still don't really get along with each other's choices. As an example, he has a lot of brightly coloured books in the living room, where I want everything to be neutral! However, when I found these bird prints on King and Mcgaw I knew that we'd both love them. 

Our Legal Wedding in London

I can't quite believe it's almost been two months since Simon and I got married around the corner from our little flat in London. We actually got married twice this summer, the intimate legal wedding took place in Stoke Newington Town Hall on the 1st of August and just over a month later we had a much larger traditional wedding at my sister's house in Fife, Scotland.

We decided to do the illegal bit here in London to save at the hassle of trying to find celebrant that we liked in Scotland. The Scottish wedding was pretty much a destination wedding for us and took quite a lot of organisation! We agreed that it would be so much simpler to get legally hitched near our flat and have one less thing to worry about in Scotland. It was also absolutely amazing having two completely different weddings, any excuse for more celebrating!
