Home decor || Autumn Style

Pinterest has taken over my life, I've had it for years but whilst wedding planning started last year I have become completely hooked (we all have a secret wedding planning board right?!).
My . . .  now husband (arghhh!) was quite surprised after we got engaged that the wedding planning & decor decisions seemed to all be done within a few hours . . . . I wonder why that was?!

You take one look at Pumpkin Decor and your pinterest feed is a never ending inspiration board of all things autumnal, which I absolutely love to be honest!. Inspired by the many pins now stored on my 'Home Decor' board, I created a pumpkin table centre piece which spends not much time on the table and is moved every 5 minutes because I can't decide where it lives!

A trip to Krispy Kreme for their new Halloween inspired doughnuts, a cosy new knit blanket from H&M home and a few snuggley cushions later, it's the perfect autumn night in.

Rianna X Style Diary - Knit & Velvet print

The knits are out and my new season pink velvet print accessories are the new day-to-day staples. 
I've been using the large zipper pouch as daily bag and matching alphabet phone case to complete the look. Forever under the floral spell, these pics were papped whilst organising wedding decor for my big day! The oversized knit was from ASOS last year and it's the cosiest cardigan, it may as well be a blanket!

Turkey || 5 boys, 1 girl, 1 pedalo and a sea turtle

 It's impossible to summarise this holiday in one blog post but here is my attempt. I went to Turkey with 5 boys. The reactions I receive when I tell people this is very mixed but I had a fantastic time!
One of the naughty boys is my fiance so it's not that weird . . . 

Turkey was a fun adventure and I'd go back in a heart beat. The food was insanely amazing at every restaurant we dined at, the scenery was breathtaking as we were surrounded by mountains and the company for me is personally what makes a holiday.

We visited Yaka Park which was situated right up in the hills. Natural ice cold spring water gathered to form a plunge pool which we all dared to jump into, I screamed my head off and did a terrible job of acting cool.
 We water rafted down a valley armed with one rubber ring and one awe per person, again surrounded by breathtaking mountainous scenery. A highlight of the trip was hiring a pedalo at the Blue Lagoon, Oludeniz Beach. A rather large turtle swam right up to our pedalo which was beyond exciting! 

Print inspiration has been gathered, a relaxing and ridiculously amazing time has been enjoyed and a country has been ticked off my list.

Reasons to visit The Lake District || Gillams Tearoom

I've already mentioned that my Aunty has a fabulous B&B in The Lakes which I repeatedly love to photograph as seen here. On our way home from our last visit me and mum decided to stop off at Ulverston. It's a little oldè worldè type village with lots of history and extremely cute & independent shops. It's easy to kill a few hours wandering around the little side streets whilst calling in the antique, home-wear and clothing shops.  

In need a cuppa . . . and cake of course, we stopped at Gillams tea room. We chose to sit in the flowery yard around the back of the tea-room, up a flight of stairs and situated amongst the rooftops. Drenched in flowers and greenery, it was a beautiful spot to soak up the sun.     

Next time your travelling around the Lake Districts beautiful countryside, call in and try out their insanely delicious home made chocolate brownie with a cup of their own brand loose leaf tea :-)
