Hey kids. What’s cooler than shopping? How about shopping, helping to recycle and making someone else a little bit of extra moolah for their troubles? I know. Karmatastic.

Yet more evidence that you don’t have to spend a fortune to have a sweet, romantic wedding.
I absolutely looove these pictures. Lets be honest, the only thing you really need for a gorgeous al fresco wedding is sunshine, but half the fun of the wedding is the planning right? You need something to occupy you while you wait and pray like you’ve never prayed before for the sun! So here, fruit! Suprisingly dreamy looking and cheap as chips. Plus perfect for the drinks later!

We’re coming up to the summer bank holiday, people have moved from student accommodation to houses, and there are lots of people going “oh crap, I’ve got annual leave left!” and deciding to do a bit of home improvement. Having had several conversations with people over the weekend, the consensus seems to be ” x job really needs doing, but I don’t know where to start and it’ll take forever.” This is a problem, but its one that is easily solved – as most problems are – with a party!
