An explanation and my new year goals…

Hello loves,

So 3 months ago I composed a post saying how I was back and would stop being slack and just concentrate on uploading my blog posts once a week etc. Well you guessed it, shit hit the fan again and unfortunately the end part of my year wasn’t a great one.

Last night I laid in bed chatting with my fianc√© and realised how much I missed writing blog posts and also reading blogs. It gave me a real hobby and was giving me a chance to sit down, even for 20 minutes, and have some real me time and just get lost into reviewing a product or reading a blog post about something I am really interested in. So I’ve decided that I really want to concentrate on my blog this year and get it out to as many people as possible. I’m giving it a real makeover and I hope the current followers I have can support me in getting up and running again.

I’m not a massive one for new years resolution as I am a big believer that you shouldn’t wait for one single day of the year to pledge the ‘new year, new me’ idea, however this year I have given myself a few points to focus on and here they are:

  • Don’t get sucked into the drama/gossip and avoid anyone giving off them negative vibes
  • Don’t rely on anyone to make yourself happy – you’re the only one that can look after yourself properly
  • Get the decor sorted in our new apartment!! (WHY IS ALL THE HOMEWARE I LIKE SOO EXPENSIVE?!)
  • Start putting money away to organise holidays and weekends away

I’d love to hear what goals you’ve given yourself this year!

Thanks for reading and I promise I won’t be this shit again,

Tori Moore xoxo

Our big day..

496 days to go until I marry the love of my life. I’ve figured this would be a good starting post as I’m sure there will be many more posts to come between now and the big day. So, for the basics…

We got engaged on 11th June 2014 on holiday with our friends, we’d been together just over two years. It was in the evening during the Turkish sunset and of course I answered yes! We’d spoken about engagement briefly in the past but it was never something I was expecting, especially with how well he had planned it out.

At the start of 2015 we decided 2017 was going to be the year we tie the knot, it didn’t take us long to find a venue. We didn’t go in with a specific idea however when we entered Southwood Hall we instantly knew this is where we wanted to get married. It’s a gorgeous converted barn with space to get married outside, providing the weather is ok on the day. It has some gorgeous accommodation and the general vibe of the place was absolutely perfect.

The wedding process so far has been super overwhelming, there is so much to take into account when booking a wedding and picking the right people for the job is so difficult! Neither me or Jake had any idea when it came to a theme for the wedding and to be honest we’ve only just decided on what look we’re going for.

I hope you have enjoyed reading a little bit more about where we are with our plans for the big day.¬†There will be many more wedding blog posts to come as I’m making yet more difficult decisions, all I know is that I am SOO grateful to have my bridal party and Mum to help me along the way, do not know what I’d do without them!

Would love to hear your wedding tips if you have any,

Tori Moore xoxo
