I Fancy Friday v. 44

Oh my, a HUGE TGIF today! Thank goodness is right! I'm exhausted and feeling a bit run down today. I woke up so tired that I couldn't event bring myself to get out on a run, my legs just didn't want to move. The weekend ahead is full of some free time and I can not wait! I'm in much need of some downtime with Sir Oliver and Mr. Beau and am truly looking forward to it. There has been so much going on right now that a weekend without 101 plans sounds like a treat. I need a little time to make some lists, reflect on some things going on with me professionally and create some things for some upcoming projects. YAY for Friday! I hope you have a fabulous weekend! Let me leave you now with a bit of fancy from the week! xoxo Becca
1. Deco Dot Midi Skirt - Anthrolpologie  - I think I may treat myself to some afterwork shopping today. I've had my eye on this amazing skirt, how can you NOT love the dots! 

2. Bob Bob Ricard - Ring the bell for champagne! Yipppeee! After almost 40 days of not eating meat, I have made a reservation for Mr. Beau and I to eat fancy burgers and drink champagne. I've been dying to get here! 

3. Coconut Collaborative Raspberry Snow Coconut Frozen Yoghurt - OMG! This stuff is amazing. Delicious and dairy free. Seriously, you must buy some today. 

4. Swing Dress in Scuba - I'm thinking about purchasing this more an upcoming hen do weekend I'm attending. It looks comfy, cute and affordable. I love a little ruffle and a one shoulder!

5. Yellow Pineapple Lamp - I can't take my eye off of this lamp. How amazing would this be at my desk, I mean really, adorable. 

6. Class Pass - HAVE YOU HEARD of this amazing concept?!?! It just arrive in London and I can't wait to try it out. I'm trying out a month long membership after Easter and I'm psyched. You can attend classes all over the city at some of the best workouts, but only 3 times a month, but that is great no! Check it out. I'll have more details next week.

7. Daylesford Chocolate Eggs - Not only did I give up meat for Lent, I also gave up chocolate. The look of these "eggs" in the cart look decadent and adorable. 

8. Sparkling Sorbet Float - My cocktail choice for the weekend. 

9. A Party Without A Cake Print - Need I say more. This print belongs on the wall in our flat. 

10. The Mrs. Sweatshirt - While this shirt may be cheesy, I kind of love it in a way!


Happy weekend everyone! Thank goodness its here! xoxo - Becca

Happy Birthday Sir Oliver!

Today our little furry ball of love turns FOUR! Sir Oliver is moving up in the world, so in dog years he is 28???? WHAT! Four years ago when we brought him home I had no idea how much fun we would have as pet owners. OK, I know, we do not have any children yet, so we treat our sweet little puppy like our child, however, seriously, he provides SO much fun and cuddles and kisses and it is true, they are your best friend! Happy Birthday buddy! We love you Sir Oliver!

Notes from the Weekend

The weekend was lovely. It was such a busy week last week, that Friday night and Saturday came and went before I knew it, but all the same it was a really great weekend! I often am on such a "go, go, go" schedule that I find myself constantly picking up, cleaning, emailing, blogging, scheduling get togethers, etc. that I do not spend time on the weekend relaxing. Sunday, after a fun but busy Friday and Saturday, I actually took a little nap on the couch, we had a great Sunday lunch with friends, read a magazine and cooked up a storm for the rest of the week, it was so lovely. Now here we are again, Monday, the beginning of the week ahead, but with another busy one ahead, looking back at the weekend will make me excited for the next weekend soon! Anybody else have a good weekend????
Friday night I was at home prepping and setting up for the bridal shower I hosted at our flat Saturday. It was SO much fun! I can not wait to share more pictures that the amazing Kylee Yee captured, but for now you can see sneaks on my Instagram account. Above is a photo of just a few of the flowers I was prepping for the party, I loved finally using our Butler stand…bar stand this weekend!

printed.com Wedding Collection - Giveaway

When I first moved to London I was looking for the nearest Kinko's, to print out projects I was working on for my bridesmaids. I was sad to find out that there was no convenient 24/7 printing shop that had good quality paper and printing ranges. I felt like my only option was the local stationery shop that would print on regular printer paper in black and white. Then as we started planning and designing all of the details I begin to miss the convenience of Kinko's more and more. I wish I had know about the site I am sharing with you today, printed.com! The easiest, convenient and affordable way to print so many wedding stationery projects. 

Listen, I am a HUGE advocate for using professionals when it comes to planning your big day, but if you are on a budget and want to spend more money on paying someone to design your stationery and can possibly save a little to print it, I say…go for it! Things start to really add up during wedding planning, and saving money on printing place cards and table numbers can be a huge help. printed.com has made it beyond easy for you to upload images, select from a lovely range of textured papers, envelopes and even metallics,  have them printed and delivered to your doorstep.

Polka Dots & Peggy Porschen : An Afternoon Coffee Date

A couple of weeks ago I met up with a wedding industry friend, Maxeen Kim , for a cup of coffee {OK a few!} and a nice catch up. Life is so busy that sometimes an afternoon of indulgence of beautiful and delicious cupcakes, hot cups of coffee {forget the tea} and a couple of hours of girlfriend chit chat are just what everyone needs. Maxeen and I had talked about getting together for awhile, but when the location of a cute tea place came into the idea, I recommended Peggy Porschen in Belgravia because, well, there couldn't be a cuter, more girly, sweet treat spot.
 If you have not been to Peggy's parlor in Belgravia you MUST MAKE A VISIT! The pink corner shop on beautiful Elizabeth Street is a must. Peggy Porschen is an amazing cake designer in London, creating everything from iced sugar cookies, mini cakes to amazingly gorgeous bespoke wedding cakes. I for one am a HUGE fan of the Patisserie Cake Collection! Brides to be check her out!

Featured On: Wedding Sparrow, Our Wedding!

Mr. Beau and I took the past three days off and it was so nice! We decided to take some time and completely clean out our flat. Since living in London for over two and half years, getting married and living our usual busy lives, we had let "stuff" accumulate and it was time for a big clean out. I woke up this morning feeling a little lighter and organized, yay! I also woke up this morning to a beautiful feature on one of my favorite wedding blogs, Wedding Sparrow. Our wedding, shot by the lovely Abby Jiu is featured today on the blog that specializes in film photography and fine art weddings. Check it out here! 
I will be posting our big day on my blog soon,but for now, it was so fun to share our wedding day over on Wedding Sparrow. Our wedding day truly was one of the best days ever, when I'm stressed out or having a bad day, I think of happy memories less then a year ago and it always makes me smile. I hope if you are a bride to be, our day gives you a little inspiration for your wedding day. These images always remind me how lucky I am to be surrounded by such much love in my life; from my friends all over the world, our families and my new husband, and that was what we celebrated!

You know how I feel about Friday's…I love them! The sense of waking up and knowing that the weekend is ahead, I love it! This weekend Mr. Beau and I are taking three days to fix up our flat a little. We have LOTS of projects scheduled and I am ready to get this place whipped into shape! I will be stopping by A Most Curious Wedding Fair and other then that we are being homebodies and guess what…I can't wait. Recently our weeks are just so busy that come Friday, I am a pretty happy person at home, on the couch with Mr. Beau, Sir Oliver and a glass of wine. Anyone else agree with me there???? It was a lovely week behind us and I found a few things that I fancy…you know I had to share. Happy Weekend everyone!
