Our Engagement Party

On saturday we celebrated our engagement with our family and friends.

I’ve spent every day planning and preparing for our party stressing myself out way too much!

I had my nails and makeup done before hand. It cuts out so much time to get ready when everything is done for you. I could spend about 2 hours just doing mascara!

We had a sweet table full with; jars of sweets, donuts and cupcakes. Unfortunately, I was so busy doing the rounds with people that I forgot to take pictures.

I made my engagement cake myself, through all the sweat and blood that went into it I managed to nearly get it how I wanted. (perfectionist)

We bought a personalised filter for snapchat and had a table for “pimp your drink”

We had such a good night and a bit too much prosecco! Here’s a few pictures from our night.

MEXICO – Our 5 Year Anniversary

Mexico has always been on my list of places to go for many years now, not cancun party central but Mexico in general. We’ve had our holiday booked since April so we had a long time to wait before we flew. Flying with Thomson is always the best experience as the cabin crew are always so lovely and attentive. The flight was roughly 11.5 hours to Puerto Vallarta. There are 2 meals on board the flight (average) and lots of films to watch too. We were welcomed at our hotel with a tequila shot and a cocktail to start our holiday the way Mexicans do! We headed out on our first night to have a look around and have our tea. It was very hot around 32 degrees. Our first day we headed out to the pool where the entertainment team were doing activities. We had dips in the pool and chilled by the pool bar most of the day. Jay and I were really shocked to see lizards all over the resort. Mostly large ones and also a baby one. Some were bright green. Jay spent an hour of the day playing water volleyball whilst I sunbathed. Later on in the evening we went out for tea and had a wander on the beach. This was the most perfect sunset we got during our stay. As it is hurricane season we would get some rain in the evening which would block the sunsets. It would be scorching hot the day after.

We received a fruit plate as a gift on one of the days which was lovely of the hotel. Unfortunately, the food didn’t agree with me while we were away so we stayed out of the heat for a day and close to a toilet. There was a bar in the lobby and one of the restaurants wasn’t too far. Due to where we were, in a bay, we had mountains and forests around us which caused a lot of the clouds. However, someone told us that they got burnt one day even from using factor 50 suncream! At breakfast time there was a wide range of options to have. Most days we would both have fried eggs, a toastie, potato chunks and bacon. Sometimes we would choose a sweeter option like fresh pancakes and donuts. The best thing was how the food was all freshly cooked as you were walking around. It’s always ideal to try the cuisine of wherever you are. For me, eating chilli nachos was great! I did try other things which I can’t pronounce, which were okay, just not to my liking. We took some strolls along the beach in the morning most days. Caught a crab scurrying along on the beach to hide under the jet ski. We spent half the day on the beach and half by the pool. Loved my outfit on this night! There was some really bad thunderstorms in the evening so we avoided watching any shows getting drenched. We chilled out in our room with some drinks and played some games of cards. Chocolate fondue!! We walked around our hotel, as I wanted to try and get a good picture of the hotel from higher up. Everywhere was soaking wet due to the thunderstorm so we had to be careful not to fall over. Every night there was a theme for the performances and the food. Themed drinks and the entertainment dressing up. Mexican night! And to top our holiday off we got engaged! We both couldn’t be any more happier and it most certainly made our relaxing holiday an unforgettable one! I hope you enjoyed our holiday highlights! I wonder what our next adventure will be?

WE’RE ENGAGED!

Hey Everyone! I just wanted to share with you the news that Jay and I are engaged!

I’m so overwhelmed with happiness and joy right now, so I’m in a little bubble of positivity.

So we’ve been in Mexico for the past 2 weeks sunning ourselves whilst it was our 5 year anniversary. Then on October 4th at sunset Jay got on one knee and proposed!

It was the most gorgeous setting on the beach with barely anyone around and he wrote in the sand saying “will you marry me?”

We won’t be getting married for about 5 or so years yet, so for now we are just going to plan an engagement party to celebrate with our families.

I’m obviously going to attend wedding fayres for the free prosecco though!

Thank you for reading guys.

With Love, V x
