So I started off March with a delicious Belgian chocolate crepe with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream from Indulge in Pinner. Indulge is such a cute little dessert lounge where you can catch up with friends or just have a naughty treat. What a great way to start the month of Spring!
March was also the month that we chose and purchased my wedding ring. With the wedding ever rapidly approaching, it felt great to get another thing ticked off of the list and I was very pleased with our choice!
I also squeezed in a lunch date in Chinatown. I am such a sucker for Chinese food. It was a staple choice for dinner as a child (Mum and I both love us some sweet & sour!), and my adoration for oriental food is still in abundance. I could probably eat it every day.
We also finally sent out our wedding invitations. I had sent out ‘Save the Date’ magnets a year in advance and had planned to send out the actual invitations in January. Unfortunately, things were just too manic and I had to postpone them. We opted to send out guests a huge box filled with confetti and tissue paper. It also contained a heart shaped helium balloon with a weight that had the date of the wedding. We had our invitations made and they were navy with photographs from our engagement shoot and all of the wedding details. As they were quite elaborate, we had most of the wedding party over to help get the invitations put together and distributed. It was actually quite a fun day!
Phil and I hit up The Ideal Home Show. Since we moved into our own place almost four years ago, we try to go every year. I used to go as a child and was always fascinated by the gadgets on display. Not to mention the freebies in the goodie bag, which seemed to be much better than they are now. I once got a mini red telephone courtesy of Direct Line Insurance and I loved playing with it. It fitted right in with my Barbie Dream House!
We always love having a nosey at the home interiors stalls and Phil loves looking at the latest technological advances for the home. We are always lusting after the hot tubs and summer houses.
It was great to see Martin Lewis in action this year too. He’s really switched on with anything to do with saving a few pennies. We normally get our tickets for free through his website.
Can’t wait to see what’s new in 2016!
It felt really weird to not have Phil at home whilst he was away. I did miss him, but I didn’t miss the mess that he makes!
We have a tradition to buy a Christmas decoration whenever we visit a country and he picked up this little bell decoration (and some Oreos too!).
