Delightful Finds and Me

The Grove Ferry, Canterbury

Apr. 22nd

Morning all, how was your Easter weekend? Mine was lovely with my old Uni friend staying with me – we even managed to make the most of the very rainy and miserable Sunday by having a lazy movie day!

The weekend was finished off by having lunch at The Grove Ferry in Canterbury which is a very fab and very quirky pub, cafe, inn and restaurant. You can have a trip down the river on a boat, eat some amazing food and even stroke some pigs – well worth a visit.

The Grove Ferry

Doesn’t it look fab! It is on the outskirts of Canterbury and a little bit out in the sticks but so worth the trip. It is in such a pretty setting and the decor is all very quirky and vintage – very cool. What do you think – will you be giving it a go? Have you been?

Have a good day and I shall be back soon :) xx


Taken by Tulle

Apr. 17th

Afternoon all. How exciting that the long Easter weekend is nearly upon us. I have one of my bestest and oldest friends coming to stay with me which I am very excited about. What plans do you have?

If Carrie Bradshaw can do tulle, then so can we all. I have seen a few fab tulle skirts around lately and I think I need one in my life. Best to start then with a bit of inspiration on the blog because as you can see, there are so many ways to wear it!

I love all of these tulle skirts! Not sure I would get away with the floor length black one but it looks cool on her. My very favourite is probably the top right one on the top board. How about you, which one would you go for?

Etsy have a pretty good selection of pretty ones, so I think I may start my search there.

Have a great day and I shall be back soon :) xx


Making My Garden Delightful

Apr. 16th

I have not even been in my new house 2 weeks yet, but with all this talk of sunshine and heat waves I want to make sure my garden is ready! My garden is quite small and fairly low maintenance, with lots of decking and not too much grass – so perfect for my rubbish gardening skills! There are a few flower beds that I would like to sort out however as I do love pretty flowers.

Give As You Live Blog

I was looking around online for some ideas on where I should start and saw some top tips over on Give As You Live Blog. So this weekend is dedicated to sorting out my flower beds and ordering my new garden furniture… probably from John Lewis as they have so much good stuff at the moment – I will need a bigger garden!

Leisuregrow Claremont Table

Bird Design Deckchairs

Double Lounger

Sunlounger

These are my 4 favourite things. I will definitely go for the table and chairs and although I love the double sofa lounger thing I will probably go for 2 deck chairs and 2 sun loungers. I think that’s a good start! What do you think?

So how about you – how is your garden looking? Will you be making a start this weekend too?

Have a good day and I shall be back soon :) xx

Too Cute

Apr. 14th

Morning all, Monday again! How was your weekend? Mine was good and the new house is already feeling like home which is good. Still very much looking forward to this coming Easter weekend though! At least its only a 4 day week and as its Easter it would be rude not to have cute chicks and bunnies for today’s Too Cute!

Baby chicks are so cute, I want one! Have a good Monday and I shall be back soon :) xx


Delightful Words

Apr. 13th

Morning all! It is a beautiful sunny day in Whitstable today and I am off out shortly to make the most of it. What are you up to today?

I have a Pinterest folder full of quotes – some funny, some sad and some just true. I post one most Sundays, in this Delightful Words feature, so that I can share them with you – so please do let me know what you think and how each quote may relate to you on that particular day.

I agree with this. I think far too many people say no to things just because it may be short notice – you only live once, why not be spontaneous now and again!

Have a sunny Sunday and I shall be back soon :) xx


Low Carb Strawberry Crepes

Apr. 12th

Morning all and happy weekend! What plans do you have for today? I am off out shopping with my Mum shortly, then just sorting the last bits out in the house after my move.

How delicious do these strawberry crepes look?! Even better too as they are low carb! Pop over to netrition for the full recipe and instructions on how to make your own.

Yummy and guilt free… I am definitely making these!

Have a lovely Saturday and I shall be back soon :) xx


My New iPad Case

Apr. 11th

Morning all and happy Friday! I have just got this new Cath Kidston (Green Provence Rose Tablet Fabric Padded) case for my iPad 2 and it is so pretty I thought it was most definitely blog worthy!

Isn’t it pretty! Have a good Friday and I shall be back soon :) xx


Burberry v Accessorize!

Apr. 10th

As much as we would all love the latest designer handbags, unfortunately its just not possible for most of us to have them all and so I love it when the high street provide fab alternatives! I saw this comparison over on Sheerluxe and just had to share it here as I think it is great.

This top pic is the Burberry floral inspired clutch and the ones underneath are the Accessorize alternatives for just £19 each – you could get one in each of the 3 colours for that price!

Accessorize

I do obviously love the Burberry ones, but think that the Accessorize alternatives are great for that price. I think I will get the white one – fab for Summer.

Have a lovely day and I shall be back soon :) xx


Wedding Wednesday – Guest Book Alternatives

Apr. 9th

Happy Wedding Wednesday! There is nothing wrong with a traditional paper guest book at a wedding, but I always like to make things a little different so will be looking at a few alternative ideas today for Wedding Wednesday.

Style Me Pretty

Modwedding

the knot

LOA Studios

I think all of these are fab. Which one would you choose? Or what have you already had at your wedding and what did your guests think? I think I would go with the Jenga game!

Have a lovely Wedding Wednesday and I shall be back soon :) xx
