collecting Memories.


A few weekends ago, me, mum and katy went for a little drive around near to where I live, as it was a nice sunny day and we were looking at venues for her wedding. When we stumbled across the old antique shop that we use to go to as kids when we had pocket money to spend. I was obsessed with tins as a child, when ever I could buy them I would, I have just bought one from Tiger actually...My obsession is yet to grow out. I once bought A small biscuit tin that was made especially for King George V, gosh I am such a geek. Anyway I bought a few pieces for my room including this delightful Players Navy cut cigarette tin I have been after one of these for a long time and when I saw it sitting there I just had to have it, its now my business card holder. After having a look around the shop, we went for breakfast once again my sweet-tooth decided it knew better and I ordered the cherry Pancakes not thinking it would come out like a pair of cream covered boobs, I could only managed half of it, totally disappointed in my effort whilst katy and mum had a burger and chips. I did how ever have a rather lovely chocolate milkshake. 

My outfit was a pretty casual one, I mixed my favourite high waited jeans with an old new look top of about 6 years. My hair I did in my sleep, and I decided that I liked it so much I wouldn't bother to take the clips out. You are probably wondering why or how I did my hair in my sleep your guess is as good as mine! 

We did how ever find the perfect wedding venue for Katy, which I will be blogging about a little closer to the wedding as I don't want to give too much away as I know a lot katy's friends read my blog. You'll love it. Oh and her dress which we might have found today!
