Did you know? pt. II

The lovely KS at While we're waiting has bestowed the sugar doll award on me!! Thank you so much!

Now I must share ten things about me.

Did you know?

1. Mr B asked my father's permission to marry me.
He was nervous.
My father was happy to give his permission and Mr B was relieved.
But then my father added that now Mr B had to do the hard part and get me to say yes.
His nerves quickly returned.

2. I am an only child. But I have married into a big family. I now have 3 brothers, 4 sisters
and 7 nieces and nephews.

3. I don't like getting into an unmade bed.

4. Mr B bought me these pillows that I've been lusting after for months.

pillowcases from Lush Designs

5. I used to have a pair of little red pixie boots when I was a child. They had warm fuzzy lining and were slouchy and very 80s. I loved them. I wore them even when my feet couldn't really fit into them any more. I was inconsolable when my mum finally got rid of them.

6. I've bought myself some new slouchy boots! Only these ones are black.
And hopefully I shouldn't grow out of this pair.

7. Mr B and I are going to visit NYC next year!!!
Dates and exact plans to be confirmed.

8. Often, mid-sentance, I'll forget what I'm saying. Completely forget.

9. I believe yoga, mediation and breathing properly can help us more than we realise.

  1. what a great list!!!!! I love how you were an only child and married into a big family, and Mr. B is quite the photographer!!!!!!! I love it!

  2. I love this list, you sure did marry into a big family, how exciting! That photo is stunning as well.

    Oh and number 1 happened to one of my friends, he was so worried that she would say no by the time he got round to proposing :)

  3. Great list - I love the Love Pillows!!

    I too don't like getting into an unmade bed.

  4. I can't get into an unmade bed either. And how sweet that Mr. B is traditional and asked your Dad for your hand. :) XOXO

  5. loved this (: Ian actually asked for my dads permission to date me! haha. I think I'm lusting after your pillows too! xx

  6. The pillows are fantastic!

    Excited to hear about those NYC plans - have you been before?

  7. I love this list so much! You are the best! Those pillows. Nervous Mr. B! Red pixie boots!


    And I am sorry, is MY SASKIA coming to NYC? Will you please allow a quick cupcake meetup to happen!?

  8. I HATE getting into an unmade bed. I'll make it, only to mess it up.

  9. Great post! I love those pillows.

  10. What a great list! And I LOVE those pillows! So cute!

  11. I wish I was there too!

  14. love the pillows!

    I've just tagged you in my latest post!


  15. Those pillows are so amazing... i love 'em! I'm so excited that you're going to NYC. I live in the states and have never been, but its definitely on my wish list! Can't wait to see what pictures you post about the trip... whenever it comes to be!

  16. Your list is perfection, and I just added those pillows to my bed this morning! LOVE love!

  17. I just found your blog....adorable!
    You seem truly happy and content with the life you've designed for yourself - quite a feat.
    Those pillows are DIVINE!
    Love&Light, doll!

  18. I love the pillows- gorgeous! And the boot story is so funny. I had a pair of denim cowboys boots when I was little that I literally wore until they had holes in the toes!

  19. Great list! Love those pillows, you're going to have so much fun in NY...and I do #8 so much too!

  20. it makes me feel better to hear that other people forget things mid-sentence too. i read this book about a woman with an early onset of alzheimers and for weeks afterwards, every time i forgot a word i thought that it was symptomatic!

    annnnd i really love your holga picture. i asked for a holga for christmas. here's hoping!

  21. Oh my God, I love that picture of you in the pool! It is awesome! And I love the pillow cases as well, they're totally adorable!

  22. It amazes me how you survived Sharm in July hehe and it also amazes me that I was there around the same time!

  23. Aw I love getting to know you!!
    MR B sounds so sweet!! And the pillows are so gorgeous!!!

    Re your comment, I want my shop to sell apparel, art, coffee table books, etc. A bit of everything. But unique things that you can't find in every shop you go to :p xxx

  24. Lists. Drool. I love lists.

  26. Oh my God these pillow cases are SO cute!


  27. oh those pillows are awesome!! and i love that you married into such a big family!! i've never had a sister and married a man with no sisters, so it's time for one of these boys to get married so i can get my wish!!

    I just started Yoga, last week at my friends suggestion and it is much harder than i realized... but i am very tense and have a hard time relaxing... i will prevail.

  31. Oh Sas... My heart is broken after getting so sick in London and coming home without seeing your shining face... I am THRILLED to hear that you're coming to NYC! I want to make up for it times 10. Cannot wait for you to confirm the dates!
