Will a Proposal Ruin Your Relationship

I logged onto Facebook yesterday for my daily dose of being nosey. I was greeted by several posts referring to a girl from my year at school who had just gotten married in the local castle. She had also hired an owl. Right. Upon seeing this I mentioned it to a group of friends later [...]

Fun, Unusual Wedding Trends

Weddings – once upon a time, it seemed like if you had been to one, you had seen them all.

Only time will tell if these innovative new concepts are the [...]

I must not belong in Venus…

Ok, so I am a little out of my depth here… Well, a lot out of depth. I do not usually do this. I am usually a-writing-about-fashion-kind-o’-girl. You know the type; descriptions of material, the way it falls, what will go with it, etc. I do not write about dating or relationships. This is probably [...]

The One

  The One. The mystical person who is supposed to make your heart flutter and stomach flip. The enchanting soul mate that we are encouraged to spend our life searching for, the individual that all block buster films tell us will be gorgeous and smart and will pull us into whirlwind romances. That someone that [...]

To Marry Him Or Not To Marry Him?

This question troubles most of the ladies who are all set to walk down the Aisle and take vows. They suffer from this dilemma till the very last moment. If she is doing the right thing? Has she chosen the right person? Rather than being sure that He is the one, she keeps on questioning [...]

How Young is Too Young?

A very old school friend of mine is getting married in a matter of weeks and the lead up to the event has got me thinking, when is the right time to get married? The friend in question is 21 years old (like me) and got engaged when she was 20. The majority of people’s [...]

No Compromises

Some people just know what they want out of life, the house, dog and 2.4 children with a steady 9-5 to support it all.   When you first start out in a relationship, it’s all hearts and roses; you peacefully coexist and mesh together in a whirlwind of romance. Getting to know each other can [...]

Wedding Branding

Ever since I got engaged about a month ago I’ve been looking at ideas on Pinterest and planning what I would like but some of the stuff I’ve found has actually scared me! It’s all well and good planning a wedding and getting caught up in the excitement of it, yet when I found what [...]

The ‘have it all’ woman is probably just as lonely and fictitious as Ms. Havisham

Besides controlling our calorie intake and deciding on which humble bachelor we are to stumble down the aisle with, it seems that ‘having it all’ is just another item to add to the list of fates we women can only hope to master in our lives.   In the 50s, to ‘have it all’ would’ve [...]

Bring on the bunting – and the bondage

Love, liberty and libation.  Three things us Brits adore. And what better excuse to combine all three than a massive party in London?   (The weather sucked, but hey that’s traditional too.)   Belated ‘Congratulations’ ma’am’.  60 years of devotion to her country.  Her Majesty’s recent Diamond Jubilee had me enjoying strawberries, celebrating the extra [...]

I Certainly Do Not

Ask me if I’d like to wear a beautiful white dress, throw a huge party and own a diamond ring, and I’d probably say yes to all three. Ask me if I’d like to be somebody’s wife and it’s an unequivocal no.   I am not interested in marriage, never have been. I have never [...]

Will You Marry Me?

  Without doubt, as February 29th arrives, that one day that only happens every four years, the news will feature at least one heart-warming story about a woman proposing to a man, unfairly apparently the only time this reversal of customary roles can ever be done. The news story will always report a happy ending [...]

Dreading Weddings

It’s always difficult to feel the magic of Christmas ebb away each year. It’s an almighty killjoy of a sensation that puts me in a thoroughly grumpy mood for January. As the new year came in I looked down at my protruding food-stuffed tummy and groaned about the hassle of having to cram all of [...]

Me, Myself and Him

Anyone who has read my author bio on the site will know that I’ve managed to fit quite a lot of life into my short 28 years. Without wanting to put too finer point on the negatives, there have been a fair few low moments for one so young and inexperienced, however, my love of [...]
