Doing: A whole ton it feels! This week flew by at work and I’ve been being a bit more productive at home which has kicked me out of my funk a bit. This Saturday was really busy in a great way and I crammed in a ridiculous amount: Harry and I visited two wedding venues yesterday morning, and we think we’ve found the one perfect for us. I’m actually amused by how excited I am! Then I headed to Brighton and went to a pop up gig by Dizraeli and the Small Gods at Lush, catching up with all the Brighton Blogger girls at Bluebird Tea Store afterwards.

This DIY upholstered bench is so good, and so simple. I am determined to have a go at making some of my own furniture at some point. I’ve done upholstering before so why not try to go the whole hog, hey?
I am really in love with some of the new season pieces from Wolf & Moon. I posted about them last year and I still love Hannah’s stuff. The V Rope Necklace is a favourite.
