Mr and Mrs Barrow

May I present to you Mr and Mrs Barrow!

“Now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the great story no one on earth has ever read, which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.” - C.S Lewis

On the 21st July 2018 one of my oldest friends said “I do” to her soulmate and now husband. The wedding was held at the most beautiful venue and was more perfect than I could ever explain, the entire day was as if we were living in a real life fairytale. From the stunning decor to one of the best live bands I’ve seen in a long time. From the beautiful dresses to the gorgeous food. This day absolutely took my breathe away and I couldn’t be happier for Mr and Mrs Barrow.

Congratulations again to one of my favourite couples

In January we took a trip to Iceland for our Honeymoon, I’ve not posted for so long that some of you won’t know that I am married so I’ll be sure to follow this up with a lovely post about our wedding day. 

Iceland is full of truly beautiful scenery, lovely locals and stunning wildlife.

I could sit here and tell you his incredible Iceland is from then beauty that is the blue lagoon to the wonders that are the geysers, but I think showing you will be so much easier!

If you get the chance I would say visit Iceland because it’s truly beautiful and will absolutely take your breath away.

Positivity is a very important part of life, although sometimes it can be hard to keep the positive feelings going. Every month I'm going to pick one word, and I'm going to write a post about that word. Words can have different meaning, it depends on how you look at them and who you are as to how you analyse that word.


Have you ever really sat there and just thought about one single word? One single word could have a different meaning to everyone on this planet, yet it could have the same meaning at the same time…what does happiness mean to you?

Here's how google defines happiness … but why leave it for someone else to define what that word means? That word is worth so much more than this.

noun: happiness; plural noun: happinesses
1.     the state of being happy.
"she struggled to find happiness in her life"
contentmentpleasure, contentedness, satisfaction, cheerfulness, cheeriness, merriment, merriness, gaietyjoy, joyfulness, joyousness, joviality, jollity, jolliness, glee, blitheness, carefreeness, gladness,delight, good spirits, high spirits, light-heartedness, good cheer, well-beingenjoymentfelicity; More

First and foremost happiness is a word, but if you forget about that factor for a moment then you will realise that it's so much more than just a word. You'll realise the true meaning of happiness, you'll realise that there may not actually be a true meaning of this word, it can be a feeling, an emotion, it can be a way of life and it's defined differently by everyone. 

It's thought that happiness is basically living the perfect life, it's often seen as living your life full of positivity, prosperity, and good health. How can you define a word as any one thing when it can mean so much, or so little, to each individual. 

To me happiness is the most important thing in life, everything that you do should be to gain complete happiness, and if there's something occurring in your life that isn't making you happy, then it probably shouldn't have any involvement in your life. I think that to be happy in life is to be the greatest that you can be, if you're living a life of happiness, you're more likely to spread that happiness around you. If there's one thing in the world that we were brought here to achieve, its happiness.

The more I think about this word, the more I begin to realise that happiness is a word that's hard to define, it's something that you can only truly know of once you've experienced it. What if you were to experience something in your life that made you drastically happier than something that you thought truly gave you happiness…how can we ever truly know what happiness actually means?

"Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy."
- Anne Frank

The Love Of My Life

I talk a lot about my life on my blog, the main reason for that is because that's why I created it, as a way for me to document things, as a stress reliever. I've just came to realise that I don't speak about my gorgeous fiance as much as I really should, so here's a post all about him!

I've been on many wonderful adventures in my life, and I'm sure that I have plenty more to come, but the most amazing? that would be falling in love with my one and only.

I use to be scared of being alone, I spent so long searching and trying to find my person, but then one day I stopped and there he was. It's true what they say about when you stop looking for something, you will find it, and it will come out of nowhere and just lift you onto cloud 9.

I first met Mike at a Pizza Hut for a friends Birthday meal, isn't it funny that more often than not, when we go out to eat, we eat here? Imagine meeting the love of your life at Pizza Hut though, not the most romantic tale, aha! 

Around 6 months after we met, we connected through Facebook and then the endless flirting began without us even realising what was happening.  

There was this one time, no not at band camp, but in a Wetherspoons, where I was having a few drinks with my best friend at the time, and in walks Mike. We ended up leaving the pub pretty tipsy, but I've never learned so much about one person in such a small space of time, never has I met someone that I had so much in common with. 

This ultimately resulted in us dating, spending countless nights staying up until the late hours of the morning just talking and getting to know one another. Never has I enjoyed the beginning of a relationship as much as I have with this one. I have never adored anyone as much as this man, and I never knew how amazing this relationship was truly going to be. 

 With this man I have experienced so many amazing things, from my first holiday abroad to my most favourite city in the world, to purchasing furniture together. 

We've been together for around 3 years now, and it's perfect.

We own a beautiful home that we someday hope to raise our own family in.

We have a handsome cat named Steve.

We have the same purchase impulses, and they are never cheap.

We have more in common than you could ever think possible, who says opposites attract?

We are engaged to be married on the 12th October 2017 in Iceland.

We are together, always.

We are perfect.

Making September Happen

I haven't done a goals post in awhile, maybe that's why I feel like I'm never getting anything done ...

With the start of September and Autumn just around the corner, I've decided it's about timeI start doing my monthly goals again, so here goes!

Monthly Goals

1. Read 4 books and review them all. I love reading, but sometimes I feel like it's hard to fit it into every day life, but 4 books in 30 days honestly doesn't feel like all that much. I'd say I'm more likely to struggle with the reviewing of the books than the reading of them because I need to take into consideration the time it takes to write said reviews, but that's why it's a goal!

2. Review films. Once upon a time I loved writing reviews and would do it all of the time. It's not that I don't love doing this, maybe I just watch too many films? But I'd like to post more film reviews onto my blog. 

3. Celebrate Mike's Birthday. It's my fiance's birthday towards the end of the month, and I'm not really sure what we're going to do, but seeing as it'll be a year since our engagement, it'll be special. 

4. Blog more. I've been doing really well with my blog recently, I often take breaks that last for months at a time, but it's time to break out of that habit.

5. Stop hitting snooze. I feel like this is a bad habit that everyone falls into, but it's now became a problem and something that I really need to break free from. 

6. Find a wedding photographer. We're getting married in October 2018, and I'm SO excited! We're tying the not in lovely Iceland, just us two, so the pictures really matter because we won't have a lot. 

Weekly Goals

1. Blog twice a week. 
2. Send out snail mail.
3. Active 2/3 times weekly.
4. Keep on top of tidying on days off.

Daily Goals 

1. No eating out.
2. Read every night before bed.
3. Bed at 10:00PM
4. Skin care routine

Have you set any goals this month? 
Drop a comment below, I'd love to hear them!
