Tis my birthday!!

Today I am 23!!
Happy Birthday me!!
Birthday's always seem a good time to look back and see what the past year has been like.
So this is what I looked like when I turned 22!!
Well my appearance hasn't changed all that much!

But I am no longer a Miss Cross and am now a Mrs Cross-Jones. So I suppose thats kinda a huge change! Although I don't really feel any different, I think when you have been living together for as long as we have, actually getting married doesn't really change anything in your everyday life.

What else. I was a student last year and now I am not, which is actually a little miserable because I have to live in the real world and get a real job (although that still hasn't really happened) And I liked being a student. I feel like as soon as you graduate you lose contact with a lot of people that for 3 years you had called friends. And thats kinda sad! I know you never lose the good friends but all the others just drift away. Plus I have friends who are still students and not being a student means I often feel out of the loop.

But I did start this blog and gain some fab new friends. I think I can truly call some of you that even though we have never meet.

Gosh did I just get a little to heavy! Sorry about that.

So what is gonna happen in the next year. Well I have no idea actually. I know I get to go on an amazing honeymoon with my wonderful husband and spend our first christmas as a married couple but other than that the future is a mystery. Hopefully I will land that perfect job or maybe make my own perfect job.

Anyway enough of all the mush. I will bring you 1 of my birthday outfits tomorrow as I am wearing it this evening for dinner with the family.

Thanks to everyone who has wished me a Happy Birthday!

Boohoo sale!

I love to browse the Boohoo sale section because stuff always seems to be ridiculously cheap. So as I am feeling so uninspired to do a decent blog post at the mo and I have to leave for work in an hour and still have wet hair wrapped in a towel on my head, I thought I would bring you my fav items for the Boohoo sale.
Ah well fingers crossed for some birthday money I can spend on something cute! Although I already bought a few cute items yesterday in Primark for my 2 birthday nights out. One official one with Family on my birthday tuesday and one for my friends party night on sunday. Shall make sure I get nice pics for you! If anyone is in Cardiff sat and fancies coming I shall be in Soda bar! Party, party, party!!

Photo shoot pictures

Sorry for no post again over the last few days but I've been a busy bee with work and a very exciting little project. I had a shoot with a great local photographer called Steve Rees on Sunday. He took some amazing urban photos and some beautiful shots in the grounds of a local manor house. The last few shots feel very Alice in Wonderland to me. So I thought for todays post I would bring you an outfit post in the form of some beautiful professional photos.
Top (underneath): I.N.C international
Shoes: New Look

So ladies, I'm thinking of using one of these as my new banner picture.
Which is your favourite?
Are you a fan of the Urban Photography, or do you rather the prettier manor grounds shots?

Outfit post - polka dot dress

I thought you might all be totally fed up with wedding photos so, I thought I should bring you a nice normal outfit post. This is from my pre-wedding party, held by my in-laws because we never had an engagement party.
This is my new bargain dress. Only £16 from Matalan and it's so cute! I love the 1950's silhouette with the fitted top and the flared skirt, and you all know I love polka dots!
Teamed with a bright red cardigan to add that bit of colour. Plus my new pocket watch necklace!

Dress: Matalan
Cardigan: Top shop
Shoes: George
Necklace: Aimi Boutique
Hair clip: Primark
Brooch and Bangles: Random

I have been cooking lots this week. Which is lovely, coz I love to cook and Jon loves to eat so I'm always happy when I can cook for him. I've made minted pork with smashed potatoes and peas and put my favourite wedding present, a bread maker, to good use already. I have made a lovely white bloomer and a chocolate and raison cake (which I shall be blogging tomorrow, as Jon helped with that and took photos of everything, literally everything, so I could blog the whole recipe, lol) Plus whilst typing this I am multi tasking and making a impromptu Shepard's Pie for dinner tomorrow. So I should go before I burn it!
