Happy New Year!


I Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year! I was back in the UK for a month which is why I haven’t been on my blog! I was off getting married! It was the most wonderful day and I can honestly say I wouldn’t change a thing! I have the most amazing Husband and being able to spend time with our friends and family at home was great! When I get the pics back I will pop a few up and also blog some wedding planning tips, with my new-found knowledge ;)!

A few other things I loved whilst being home was the Gluten Free Food! Warburtons does a really nice range including full-sized GF loaf. I also had GF wedding cupcakes, GF Christmas Cake and they even have GF Fish and Chips in my Favourite town Whitby! It’s amazing how many options they have, far more than we currently have in Canada! I was able to get GF crumpets and pita breads, it was nice to be able to stick to my eating plan easily, especially when I didn’t have any time to bake any GF foods. They still aren’t as up to date with dairy free products but I did try a really tasty hazelnut milk!

Now onto the Fashion!!! I can’t tell you how much fun boxing day shopping was! here are a few bits I picked up at home!

I fell in love with this paper planes wallet at House Of Fraser!

Chris got me this beautiful Karen Millen Dress! He has surprisingly great taste for a man!

And I wore this lipsy playsuit for NYE luckily I’m short so it wasn’t quite so high!


I feel really blessed going into the New Year and I am hoping this one will but just as great as the last one! I am starting a wedding stationary line and looking into selling my Gluten and Dairy Free baked products this year! I will keep you posted! xo

Union Jack Designs

Living away from home has made me love the UK even more, I thought the Jubilee was wonderful and the Olympics were amazing! So I have decided to do a post on some of my favorite Union Jack pieces. I can’t wait to go home this Christmas, I will be going to my favourite shops and bringing back something pretty and patriotic! If I could get all of the things below in some kind of Mary Poppins bag it would all be coming back to Canada with me.

I love all of the cushions below and how cute is that sleepy dog!

This wall and chandelier would look great in a restaurant.

This set of draws would be a nice focus piece in a guest bedroom, I like how everything else is pretty neutral that way it doesn’t seem to loud.

All of these would be adorable in the kitchen!

Chris’s mum sent over these oven gloves which I love!

I would like to attempt making this cake.

This jubilee cake is amazing!

And of course some Fashion! I think that dress is gorgeous! it makes me miss the summer.

The Jacket and welly’s would be very stylish for a countryside stroll! 

Then you could match it with these heels and a purse for the pub! In my head I am imagining wearing all of these! 

I saw in the news a while ago that people were complaining about a town mayor wearing these shoes and they demanded that she resign, complaining that she was ‘wiping her feet‘ with the flag which I think is ridiculous! They are very patriotic and just like all of the other items, we buy and wear them because we are proud to be British! You just can’t please some people I guess. 

And lastly, how lovely is this, a little village turned their phone box into a community book exchange! Much nicer than the phone box at the end of my road which some people used as a urinal!!

Ahhh well! that’s my window shopping done for the day!
