Last week, my amazing husband James and I celebrated eight whole years together! We took a mini break to Paris to mark the occasion and I was treated to a visit to the Dior exhibition which I LOVED. The dresses were utterly exquisite, full of stunning details. Truly works of art.
We also celebrated with my dear friend Erin O'Connor, who only went and got herself honoured by the Queen and got a shiny MBE! What an incredible achievement and seriously well deserved. I'm so proud of her.
Until next week...

"I LOVED my appointments at Halfpenny London. Firstly, the boutique is absolutely beautiful! It’s like stepping into a treasure trove filled with lace and tulle and sparkly things… I wanted to try EVERYTHING. "I actually fell in love with two dresses. I was set on the Violet Full French lace but then the Dita caught my eye and I had to try it. They are two very different dresses but equally beautiful. My bridesmaids were extremely patient and humoured my contestant ‘which one would you go for?!’ phone calls! "Ultimately the Dita made me feel the more bridal of the two, I loved the way it moved and how it fit me. It made me feel like a princess (a cliché but I think we secretly all want to feel that way on our wedding days) but still had the modern, cool feel that all of the Halfpenny dresses have. The beaded bustier was just exquisite, I hadn’t seen anything like it before. From a far it almost looks like lace. When I didn’t want to take it off I knew it was the one."
