Shoe Want!

Yes, I love Clarks shoes. I've posted about them before.

Here are my Autumn/Winter picks.

So thats what I want to be wearing, however, this is more than likely what I will actually be wearing this Canadian autumn/winter.

Wedding Presents

We were so excited today when we collected a HUGE box from the post office with a big Crate and Barrel logo across the outside. Our lovely lovely friends, David and Tanya, sent us just the nicest things.

The decorations are already on the tree and we're planning our shopping for the week from the cookbook (and, of course, looking for the next excuse to use the bar set!) The weird thing is that I've been on the lookout for an oil bottle so I think our friends might be psychic!

Thank you so much guys.

A Beautiful Dressing Table

I need a fabulous dressing area. At the minute my makeup, jewellery and hair things are all in various parts of the house, from the living room through to the bathroom and then even more in the bedroom. I really need a spot where I can keep everything together.

So I've been dreaming......

.....and hubby said he might treat me. Hehe!

I did find one that I love. I'll post the pics tomorrow. I think it deserves a post all of its own.

Ebay, All the Way.

For people looking to save a few bucks on their wedding, I just wanted to recommend ebay.

We got so many things for our for very little money.

We got led night lights for our lantern pew ends (safety first kids!)

We also got stemtex (not to be confused with the popular explosive substance with a similar name) for doing the flower arranging with.

But we also got ribbon. Lots and lots of ribbon.

We got this green polyester for the cars and outside the church (bows constructed thanks to my sister and her boyfriend)

We got this lovely wide navy polysatin for the bouquets and pew ends.

And lastly my favourite. This navy and white polka dot for the buttonholes and place settings.

If you're thinking of picking up some things on ebay, I say go for it. Also, if any needs some stemtex I find myself in possession of about 10 rolls too many. It takes about a roll and a half for a wedding apparantly.

Hey everyone.

It took me ages standing out on the balcony this evening to get this video but I think it was worth it just for the last 3 seconds or so.....
