Link Loveliness – animals, gum wall art and topless women in NYC

For some reason this week, I’ve not been able to keep my eyes off the blogs I follow and random articles that pop-up on the interweb. I love tucking-up on the couch of a cold Winter’s evening and reading through Bloglovin’ and here’s this week’s Link Loveliness…

Here’s some random bits I’ve found and want to share this week:

  • I love anything about animals, particularly dogs and this story of a rescued dog climbing everest is so touching
  • The life-changing moment for this terminally ill child who got to live his dream of being Batman
  • I love old photos of historical figures or moments and these ones have been remastered with colour to bring them alive!
  • In certain situations, going topless can be an incredibly invigorating and liberating moment for a woman. I think these ladies in New York prove that…and what beautiful photos!
  • Sticking on the photographic theme, I also adore these photos charting a woman’s body throughout her pregnancy (if I’m ever lucky enough to have children, I will totally do this!)
  • Being half-Canadian, I bloody love that country and the Canadian people. This incredibly thoughtful investment from the Canadian government, to try and protect animals from becoming roadkill just says it all! All governments out there, take note!
  • This gum-wall in San Francisco is pretty gross, but also strangely awesome

Some wedding-y bits:

  • I love a good London wedding (and had one myself), so that, teamed with art-deco influences, makes this wedding simply divine
  • Bit of supplier love this amazing lady – Emma Case Photography (we were lucky enough to have her and hubby Pete take our wedding photos)
  • On a supplier note, take a look at our save-the-dates that we printed on Moo cards

A honeymoon in Italy – Part 3 – Tuscany

So the 3rd and final part of our honeymoon in Italy (after Venice and Lake Garda), was 8 days in Tuscany. And what a beautiful 8 days they were!

We were lucky enough to be able to stay at my new in-laws house, which they’d vacated for us and is in a quiet village called Soiana, has it’s own pool and beautiful terrace and balconies on each floor. Lucky us! Because it was in a family house, the fridges were stocked, the cellar was full of wine and it meant we could truly kick back and relax. We had the run of the place (thanks mummy and daddy in law).Continue reading

An Autumnal Oxfordshire Wedding in Eynsham Hall

Last month we were privileged and excited to attend the gorgeous Kirsty and Lee’s Wedding at Eynsham Hall, Oxfordshire. And what a day it was!

We decided to make a weekend of it and drove down from Manchester on Friday night for a 2-night stay. The venue was incredible and certainly gave the wow-factor when driving up the impressive drive-way to the grand reception. We were instantly excited for what we knew would be a weekend of laughter, joy and celebration – the wedding of the beautiful Kirsty and Lee.Continue reading
