The Sunday R&R

Happy New Year to you and welcome to the first Sunday R&R of 2016!

I could start this post by telling you of all the wonderful developments for the FWS family during this year, or I could tease you with the new lets say ‘activities’ that will be introduced during 2016…. but I am not going to do that.

Well not just yet… you will have to keep your eyes peeled.  For now I want to start the year with an overwhelming thank you.  Thank you to everyone who makes FWS the special place that exists online to celebrate the wonderful, the challenges and the beauty of planning a wedding in France.

So whilst you enjoy the first weekend of 2016 I will leave you with The Sunday R&R….

This week started with the most gorgeous New Year’s Eve winter nuptials planned by Marry Me in France and captured by Zen Film Works – see full wedding here

Chateau grand lucé

Today we share the stunning prestigious and incomparable 18th Century Château in the Loire Valley Chateau du Grand Luce.  It has been amazingly renovated and decorated by the owner, the famous American Interior Designer Timothy Corrigan accommodating 28/30 people in the 14 luxury suites.

You will explore the French formal gardens, the exotic garden, the green rooms, the glasshouses, the ornamental kitchen Garden, the English park, the lake and the forest and all may be the backdrop of your wedding.

New Year – new routines

I do like starts, the start of a new year, the start of a month, the start of a new routine – which is what my guide is focusing today on my new investment in myself, my self care and my own health as a entrepreneur.

My first purchase is an infusing water bottle, to aid in the consumption of more water whilst say at my desk and blogging.  Like the range from Live Infinitely.

infuser water bottleI am enjoying delving into the world of crystals and the influence they can have on the energy of a space.  The two crystals that I have added to my toolkit are citrine and rose quartz, and my once piece of advice if you can visit a shop in person, is to pick a crystal that speaks to you.

It doesn’t have to be the prettiest or shinest, but the one that calls to you.  You can find some crystals to help you get started here.
