1) My Spanish Holiday
If you follow me on Instagram then you'll have noticed that my photos were looking far more sunny than usual - I've been on holiday to Spain! My husband and I went back to Nerja, a place we love dearly. I'll be posting about my holiday outfits (I know it's always good to have a nosey at other people's holiday packing, click here to see my post from the last holiday) and sharing some jealousy-inducing photos of the beautiful scenery in wonderful Andalucía. Check back here on Sunday to see the first of my posts about my holiday wardrobe.
2) My First Wedding Anniversary
My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary while we were away. Time has flown since our vintage inspired wedding in Wales last September. I was looking at the photographs again recently, as I had some photo books printed as gifts for relatives, and the one below is one of my favourite photos from the day. Wonderful memories! One of my bridesmaids is going to be a bride herself in a few months' time, so I will be referring her to my post on how to keep the budget under control.
3) Five Style Tips I've Stolen from Zella Maybe
I have written a guest post for the style blog Zella Maybe where I describe how I recreated five of Jessica's looks (shamelessly copy her great ideas in other words!). Click here to read my article and see the pictures for all five looks. Jessica really does have such a unique and fabulously creative sense of style, so if you're in need of an injection of inspiration and haven't come across her blog, I recommend you add it to your reading list.
4) The No-Regrets Guide to Donating Clothes to Charity
If you're considering a clothes clear out then you'll find this article by CiCi Marie for Oxfam very useful to reference. The six steps that are outlined have all been road-tested by CiCi herself as she's just moved house and had a major declutter. I particularly like her idea of a 'maybe' bag and I've recently tried that out myself - a red skirt I have put in and out of the donation bag on several occasions recently got a reprieve for my summer holiday. I'm glad it was in the 'maybe' pile and I didn't get rid of it straight away. Other items go straight in 'out', like the below shoes which were all too uncomfortable! I wish those Bronx leather ones had been wearable, I loved the style and they weren't cheap. Someone else is hopefully wearing them now and not in pain!

There you go, a little post to keep you going until I can get my holiday photos sorted! I hope you're all having a good start to the month.
