Authors: Ashleigh M


In the run up to the wedding I wasn't convinced about flowers, I mean they are just going to die right? getting quotes from various florists didn't help matters they were all so expensive, for a while I toyed with making my own bouquets. But in the end my Dad convinced me that I would have more important things to worry about...

Our Honeymoon: New York, New York!!

First stop on our amazing honeymoon was the fantastic New York City! It was also the place that we gave ourselves full reign to indulge and treat ourselves. We stayed at the James Hotel  in SoHo and were treated like Kings and Queens for the two days we were there. Even before we left I had a call from the concierge to see...

So we did this!

Authors: Ashleigh M


Yes we brought a hammock back from Nicaragua and hung it in our living room! It's a bit unconventional but it is so fucking cool!

See while we were away we really got into our hammocks, few days passed without some chilling in one. Infact towards the end of the trip it might have been one of my criteria when looking for a hotel!...
