Life Lately | Blog votes & links

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text][dropcap]T[/dropcap]HIS time last year, I was gearing up for my wedding- getting the last minute errands run, sending off the final emails, and trying to coordinate who needed to be where and do what on the day. Oh, and getting a very nice bridal mani/pedi. The weather was hot, hot, hot because it was August. Zip to a year later, I have pulled a jumper out from my banished Winter pile and have put the kettle on. Go home Mother Nature, you’re drunk.

You know who else needs to go home? Me. I realised a moment ago, I had been swanning around wearing said jumper inside out. I guess this is what happens when you are tired, permanently dusty and living out of a suitcase on your living room floor.

Here are some recent cool links, plus a fancypants Voting button for the Bloggers Blog Awards…[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title=”COOL THINGS” color=”custom” accent_color=”#ff8d6b”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]- I did a Q&A over at Cider With Rosie which you can read here

These awesome sandals are back in stock. I get asked about them every single time I wear mine.  It’s the pom poms, they kill me.

– I know I said I broke up with coffee…but it’s back with a vengeance. I blame it on binge watching the Gilmore Girls, which by the way, is back NOVEMBER 25TH! #TeamJess

Paddywax Apocathery candles, specifically the Chamomile and Fig. Smells pretty much the same as the Diptyque Figuier scented one, but for half the price.

– What do we think of the Instagram ‘Stories’ update? I’m not yet convinced…(unless it saves battery power in which case, cool bro)

– AND, our 1st wedding anniversary is coming up so we are heading to the countryside this weekend! Clay pigeon shooting awaits! (Also, I can’t believe it’s been a year, WHAT)

  1. Aww congrats on your blog nomination! Think we got married around the same time last year, time does fly?! I’m just looking for an anniversary card actually 🙂 I saw a few girls wearing pom pom sandals on holiday recently definitely eye catching!

  2. Thanks Hanh- not nominated, just hoping to be garner enough nominations to qualify 🙂 I do remember, it was this time last year! We were in the midst of planning panic! Honestly, where does the time go? And also, thanks for the card reminder (i’m the worst!)


  3. I’m obsessed with the new Stories update! I really didn’t think I’d like it- how cynical- but it’s nice to have both things in the same place and at least I can be active via a story if I don’t post a ‘real’ insta for a few days! It’s also easier for me as I have a personal and a blog Snapchat so to use them both I’m constantly logging in and out and means I’m less active than I’d like which isn’t that case now you can swap between Instagram profiles! Have I sold it to you yet?

  4. SOLD!

    I was having a browse on Instagram earlier, and I agree, having Stories and pictures is actually quite handy under one app…and I feel the video quality is much better too! I take care of some social media accounts for a couple of businesses, so this would also be a nice ‘behind the scenes’ type feature to have too.


  5. I’m just hoping to same will happen to me next year when we get married and I’ll be able to say the build up has just gone by in a flash, I’m expecting to be the busiest within the last 6months of the wedding
