This blog is over but don’t panic!

But don’t panic It’s not all over I just don’t have time to update this one anymore because my new blog The rings and other things

is taking up my spare time, that and the fact that even though i still have 22 months or 664 days (I know it seems ages but when i first got engaged It was 800 days to go!) left before I get married it takes up most of my spare time & all of my focus and attention is on that at the moment. I literally seem to have a one track mind if it’s not about weddings I can’t seem to focus and as you can see it’s been awhile since I updated or did anything on this blog, so after lots of umming & ahhing I’ve decided to end ’ve decided to end this blog and my Confessions Of A Nail Polish Addict blog and concentrate solely on The Rings & Other Things so from now on I will only be posting on there.

About The Rings & Things

At the minute this blog is mainly about planning my wedding but eventually it will expand to be about other things (I promise!) e.g. buying a house, married life, and hopefully (fingers crossed) having a baby. It’s definitely going to be more life & lifestyle related than this blog although I still hope to post some fashion things even if at the moment they are all wedding related. I also plan to get back in youtubing sometime in the near future but at the minute things are busy busy busy.

My Wedding Blog!

As I’m begging to realise ALOT of planning goes into a wedding! & even though I dont plan to get married for another 2 years there are still alot of things that need sorting ASAP! So I’ve decide to make a wedding blog to keep track of everything I’ve done so far & hopefully helpful tips and tricks along the way. If you would like to follow my journey from engagement to marriage & hopefully beyond then please follow my new blog….

I’m Engaged!!

Well after 5 1/2 years together I am excited and happy to announce that we’re (Me & Josh) now engaged!

He proposed Sunday 19th May 2013.

I wont got into too much detail I’ll just give you the short of it if you’d like the fully story just leave a comment & I’ll do it in my next post

On one knee with my friends & family around 🙂 It was so sweet & I honestly had no idea & being the usual me (classy as ever) actually shouted “OMG whats happening?” when he dropped to one knee but the long & the short of it is I SAID YES!

& Boy oh boy did he put a ring on it! I adore it it’s so different & completely unique (designed by himself)

I absolutely love it & couldn’t be happier I have the most amazing fiance! (I still want to say boyfriend lol)

 I’ve already turned into bridezilla & bought my first wedding magazine! I’ve also bought a scrapbook as I plan to a wedding scrapbook from the engagement, all the planning right up until the wedding which will hopefully be August 2015!

Sponsor the Help For Heroes Charity – Mount Kilimanjaro Climb!

Hi guys I know it’s been FOREVER since I blogged anything & I promise to get back on it starting February with a surprise for all you loyal followers! But for now onto the main reason for this post….

I’m pretty sure most of you out there by now have heard of the UK charity Help For Heroes or H4H. If you haven’t heres a little bit of information

The charity Help for Heroes was launched in October 2007 in order to provide direct, practical support to wounded injured and sick Service personnel and their families. All the funds raised to date are either allocated or spent on the direct, practical support of those wounded in the current conflicts. To date, H4H has funded a variety of projects including the £8m Rehabilitation Complex at Headley Court, a new £3.5m treatment centre for Combat Stress, adaptive adventure training through the Battle Back programme and the creation of a £6m Quick Reaction Fund to support individuals in need.

The reason for this post is my boyfriend (Josh) is helping to raise money for them by joining their 2013 Mount Kilimanjaro climb in October! Here are some of the details of the charity climb….

Please give generously this is all for a good cause!
