Rehearsal Dinner Invitations with Paperless Post

Paperless Post I love really pretty stationary and loved designing our own wedding save-the-dates and invitations, but when it came time to sort out invitations for our Rehearsal Dinner, we didn’t want to fuss with designing them, posting them and paying an arm and a leg for them. We decided send e-invitations to all of our guests, via Paperless Post, and it was a great decision as they turned out beautiful, it was the most cost effective option and it was super simple to do!

A Fun Weekend + A Visit to Farm Girl

This past weekend was great. It was pretty non-stop but I got to catch up with so many friends and it felt good to reconnect after not seeing some of them for so long! My weekends, admittedly, usually aren’t this eventful and I am oftentimes so tired by the time Saturday rolls around that I love nothing more than a relaxing day at home but this weekend was different and although I am pretty flat out writing this, I am so glad that I took advantage of my time off and spent time with friends.

Netflix & Chill

Sometimes, there’s nothing better than ‘Netflix & Chill’ and by chill, I mean literally lazing on the couch and binge watching a really good show. The last month of work has been really stressful with a lot of long and intense hours. Sometimes, there is nothing more I look forward to than pouring a glass of wine, curling up on the couch and decompressing with a new show. There are some really good shows on Netflix that Ciaran and I have been watching lately so I thought I’d share a few of my favourites as of lately with you guys…

Our Wedding Video

Hiring a videographer for our wedding was a last minute decision and it was one of the best decisions we made throughout the wedding planning process. A few weeks beforehand,  I told Ciaran how much it would mean to me to have a video to look back on our special day. Of course we’d have all of the photos, but I wanted something I could watch and have memories of my parents, family and friends to look back on for years to come.

Pumpkin Picking in London

 Pumpkin pickin’ season is upon us ya’ll! Growing up in the US, there wasn’t a year that went by that we didn’t go pumpkin picking in October. It signifies the start of Autumn and is such a fun activity to do on the weekend. When I was little, we used to go to this farm in Kansas with a huge field all full of pumpkins and pick out our own to bring home and carve for Halloween to put out on the door step. As we got older, I’d go to the pumpkin patch with friends when that snap of cold air hit, drink apple cider, enjoy apple cider donuts and pick out pumpkins to decorate our house with.

Getting Back Into the Swing of Things Post-Wedding

How to get back into the swing of things I don’t know about anybody else who has gotten married before, but I had serious post-wedding/honeymoon blues when we returned to London. Going back to work that first week was really hard because while I just went through a momentous life experience, everything else stayed the same. It felt odd coming back to the norm and I grappled with how my life had just changed so much,  yet everything else still stayed the same. I had to get back in to the swing of things!
