I found this stunning coat on eBay the other day. Vintage M&S wool beauty. I've been looking for one for so long, I'm glad I held out, as this one is completely perfect. And was the bargain price of £30. 

My only issue is that it really smells. It's in mint condition, but has obviously been sitting in a smelly house for a while (as most vintage/second hand things do I suppose) but I have a very sensitive nose and so I'm on a mission to get it smelling like clean linen. It's going to the dry cleaners this week. 

It's beautiful all the same!

It was Tom's birthday a couple of weeks ago. I knew he had wanted these beeeeeeeeeautiful trainers for a very long time, but of course they are extremely hard to find (unless you're will to pay £100s on eBay!) I spent a few weeks working in Stuttgart when we got back from our honeymoon, and searched everywhere for them, but no luck. 
On my first day back at work in York I called into Office to see what other trainers they had, and there they were, all black Nike Huaraches, I think my heart stopped for a second I got so excited! They had one pair left, and they were in his size, of course.

A birthday present that was meant to be.

The end.

If you are in the Sheffield area, make sure you go down to Moonko on Division Street to see this beautiful exhibition, by my lovely friend Lucy Aspray from EverThine photography. The exhibition is predominately photos from their travels, you can buy all the prints, also calendars and beautiful cards. Lucy is there for you to have a chat with about her work, and also to make any enquiries regarding wedding/event photography. It's on until next Wednesday, so go quick!

At the weekend I quite literally dragged Tom around town on a quest to find things for the house, that of course I managed to convince him that we NEEEEEEDED. For example, a lamp. I have been banging on about this bloody lamp since we moved in. I'm a huge fan of nice lighting. It's important. I feel stressed at even the thought of switching on a 'main light' (and as much as Tom might think, I know I'm not alone on this one) AM I RIIIIIGHT? So anyway, we got a lamp, and I literally squeaked about it all the way home.

Except, eventually finding this lamp was only half the story, said lamp of course needed a table. We took a trip to Honeysuckle at Home, my most favourite housewares shop in, well, the world. But definitely my favourite in Sheffield. Situated on Abbeydale Road, and run by the loveliest lady named Jude. (I will be doing a feature all about the shop soon, then you will see what I mean!) There we found our new gorgeous little side table... and a vase.... and a framed painting.... at this point I could see it in Tom's eyes, I needed to stop. On route home we stopped off at B&Q to pick up some plants, as you can clearly see in the photo below, Tom was becoming increasingly irritable, so at this point I knew it was time to leave. Altogether a brilliant weekend for household things, not so much for Tom's sanity.

On August Twenty Third, I married the most incredible person I know. We had a small ceremony in my local parish church, followed by a reception in the back garden of my parent's house. The whole day was so relaxed and stress free, we loved every second of the day. Here are a few of my favourite photos from our official photographer India Hobson
