The Sunday R&R 187

Happy Sunday!  Day off today and it is going to be filled up with looking for bathroom tiles and kitchen stools.  I know that it is so rock and roll when refurbishing a house, but gosh darn I’ve looked at so many tiles and stools and I am yet to find the perfect ones that I want.  If you have any recommendations especially for tiles, do leave me a comment below please.

It has been a busy week in the office, with new clients joining the Destination Wedding Academy for 1-2-1 mentoring support and a unique consultancy project for a client that really has got my creative vs logical juices flowing.  If you are interested in working with me you can find out more here or head straight over to the Destination Wedding Academy to see more on 1-2-1 mentoring.

So whilst I go and search for tiles I will leave you with The Sunday R&R……

Valentine’s Day Ideas

I am not sure how January is going so fast and Feb will be her super quick, so here are some of my fav ideas for presents for your man.

As the wife of a bearded husband I have to say Mr T LOVED his beard grooming kit for Christmas, and also a little present for you when the beard smells and looks fab – via Etsy.
