DIY // Peacock Cards

peacockIn the next month one of our beloved friends are getting married. Well actually both of our friends are marrying each other. Much to my fascination and love for birds, I was surprised when they explained that the theme for their wedding was indeed PEACOCKS! I always knew the groom to be loved birds, but little did I know that the bride would agree to a bird themed wedding. However it makes sense, because at the end of the day peacocks are a beautiful array of colours and beauty, so why wouldn’t you want a blue and green themed wedding with peacock feathers everywhere?

So in light of this information, and a little bit of a struggle to find a card that I believed suited them as a couple, signified their six year relationship and hinted at a long lasting beautiful marriage…I decided I would indeed make them a card with my gleaming creative fingers.

How-to plan a surprise wedding!

When I was planning my wedding, there was no hint of wanting to do a surprise wedding! I wanted a rustic low-key family orientated wedding. I saw on Pinterest the shock of some family members when they realised it was a surprise wedding and BAM! The idea was born! However it wasn’t easy! By deciding to have a surprise wedding there was a big key element, which also made it extremely difficult to plan…KEEPING IT A SECRET!

DIY // Thank you Notes

Since our special day has been and gone, it was time to thank all of our unsuspecting guests for their generosity, good natures and for coming along with an open mind. I still cannot believe that everyone was shocked, I honestly thought more people ‘knew’ that it was a wedding, but I guess their suspicions did not really manifest into an actual thought because everyone was genuinely shocked!

In tradition it is nice to send a thank you card to everyone who attended for coming, and to everyone who brought a gift for their generosity. Since we specifically asked for no gifts, but instead to donate to our house fund it was even more important to thank everyone. Continue reading

Health // Migraines Part Three

In the past two years I have been a sufferer of exhaustion, bloating, fatigue, eye aches, back pain, head pounding on the left, head pounding on the right, but more commonly I have this all over belting pain that encompasses the entire skull. For me that meant that most doctors could not pin point the source of my migraines. That was a problem because for a year and a half I tested and tried a handful of medications that had other risks associated with taking them, had a number of appointments with the doctors and even had a number of blood tests, neurologist appointment and a MRI scan…all with no cure.

If you have seen in the last two months I have posted an article about ‘what a migraine actually is‘ and another article about ‘identifying symptoms and triggers‘. I suggest if you’re a migraine sufferer or think you may have more than normal headaches, take a look at both of those before proceeding to this weeks posts, as now I’ll discuss what medications, procedures and scans most doctors will use in your path to finding a cure.
