Thursday

i'm getting married!!!

i am an excitable charlotte. my head is filled with little thoughts and ideas and colours and flowers and designs and places and foods and music...... oh i am far too happy to even use the word 'happy'. silly really. but i love it.
and to make it all even better, i have ten days off in a row. smiles.


i fell in love with charlotte's nail idea, here at the lovely 'kook'. so much so, i decided to have a go myself. i painted all my nails a peachy nude colour , except the ring finger, which was a sparkly 'molten copper'. it also shows off the fact i have an engagement ring on my finger!
the ring:
it is so special. i absolutely adore it. it is an heir loom in Sebastian's family and is four generation's old. i feel completely honoured that his mother let him give it to me. so very honoured.
the diamonds are 'blue diamonds' which mean that when they catch the light you can see a glimmer of bold blue. they are a very rare cut and apparently they do not cut them like that these days.
which makes it that much more special. i am in awe every time i look at it.

now, to stay up late and drink tea and eat christmas chocolate. why? ---because i have no work tomorrow!!!

  15. First of all, I love the polish. It looks amazing. But then it's glitter, everything looks great in glitter. :)

    And second and more importantly, Congrats!! Your ring is gorgeous! I love older rings. They are so much more unique than the rings that are sold now. The cut and design are beautiful.
