2015 – so it begins.

Hey everyone – been a long time now. Seriously long. Sorry about that but life got in the way again. So busy with with all the wedding planning πŸ™‚ Only about a month and half left until the big day!
Soooooo excited!

Went down to Cape Town last weekend to celebrate another wedding, between my fiancΓ©s brother and his now wife. The wedding was beautiful and her dress was stunning. Had such a great time dancing the night away with all the lovely people.

So I’m gonna share some sunnier photos with a very casual outfit in neutral colors. Most of my clothes are black, white, grey or beige haha.

The LBD and wedding planning

Good morning!
My wedding planning is now happening 24 hours a day haha I even plan stuff in my dreams! But we are getting there. Quite a few things checked off the list already.
And even more stuff waiting to be checked off πŸ˜›
The trickiest parts I’m dealing with now is finding an officiate and outfits for everyone to wear. Found my dress already and will order it as soon as possible. But what I have in mind for my bridesmaids is very hard to find. Guessing its just the wrong season, need to look closer to summer. The same goes for the groom and groomsmen’s outfits. Wrong season. Cant wait for the shops to get their summer stuff in. And to find someone to officiate at the wedding is a lot harder than I thought. But I’m gonna keep on looking…

You guys were so sweet and seemed to like the LBD outfit I posted from my trip to Barcelona. So here is another way of wearing the same dress πŸ™‚

Saturday’s outfit and ring issues

Hellooooo πŸ™‚
The weekend is over – hope you all had a fabulous one!
It’s been quite the interesting morning for me…. last night my finger starting swelling up so I spent about 3 hours trying to get my new beautiful engagement ring off. It just would not come off. I tried elevating my arm, putting ice on my finger, using soap, using oil, I tried pushing glad wrap in under the ring to pull it off but nothing helped. So I went back to bed waking up like every 10 mins just to make sure my finger was still above my head and wasn’t turning purple. It was a pulsating, throbbing feeling and my finger felt like it wanted to explode. So this morning Rodney my amazing jeweler came by and had to cut it and bend it open so that I could get it off. Now a few hours after – my finger is still swollen but the pressure inside is going away. Will have to make the ring a bit bigger haha. Thats what you get for pushing a ring on your finger!

That’s how sexy my finger looked hahaha. Like a little balloon!

 

Anyway now that that is over – here is what I wore on saturday when I got proposed to πŸ˜‰ ❀
