Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I suppose you could call it the 'Bridget Jones' Diary' (for the wedding industry); I've created it really as a way for me to vent about my upcoming nuptials without boring my nearest and dearest about things that, well, just aren't that important to them but are all I seem to think about now I'm a fully fledged member of the Engagement Club.

About Me

I'm a Bride to Be.  On a budget.  Therefore I'm freakishly obsessing over wedding plans and looking forward to being the new Mrs Sparkles!

We met.  We dated.  We fell in love.  We set the date.  

I love my family, my fiancé (obviously), our puppy Dudley and chocolate.  Most Saturdays, you'll normally find me baking cakes or experimenting with wedding related DIY creations!

Join me as I rant, rave, shed tears and laugh (a lot) about the planning stages of our wedding on the run up to our Big Day!  I'd love for you to share any of your experiences, weddings, DIY creations or otherwise on these pink pages for other readers to enjoy.  So if you want to be involved, just get in touch!

To make you feel that you know me a little better, here are some things about me you may not have known...

*  I have a black Labrador puppy named Dudley;
*  I only tried my first carrot when I was 22;
*  My favourite foods are chocolate and cake;
*  I have a fear of butterflies, moths, fish and water;
*  My aim is to retire by the time I'm 40;
*  I get goosebumps when I watch programmes such as Downton Abby and Call the Midwife;
*  My favourite films are The Notebook and An Officer and a Gentleman;
*  I am 'Team Jacob'
*  I sometimes have a dream, wake up and then carry on with the same dream the next night;
*  If my life plan had worked out as I'd mapped it when I was 16, I'd be a lawyer living in Newquay   and I'd be married to a surfer now.  10 years later, I have none of these things!
*  I love to bake;
*  I have a tuft of hair from my old dog Barney in a trinket box on a shelf in my living room;
*  I love grey, drizzly days (I don't know why);
*  I am fully qualified in most aspects of beauty therapy, makeup and body massage; I have a travel agent qualification.

Sending lots of love, C  xxx
