Sorry... sappy caption here... feel free to skip if you don’t want to vom! ••••• 4 years ago I went to a @tattydevine workshop in the morning to make a valentines heart bunting necklace. We had a choice between pink lovey colours or black and silver ‘anti VDay colours’. I remember sitting there trying to decide. I knew I had another first date that evening and I was on the brink of giving up on it all and becoming the anti-VDay spokesperson. I really didn’t want to go for a 1st date on VDay but this guy convinced me to go. For some reason I decided to go pink. Later that day, I turned up very very very late to a date in the pub that I could see from my kitchen window. I’m not normally so rude to be as late as I was, but I think it was just me feeling done with disappointing first dates. But as I walked in there was @beadlesabout83 with a rose, card and some awful Kylie perfume (sorry MrB I don’t think I’ve told you I didn’t like it yet 😂). Normally presents on a 1st date (even on VDay) would make me cringe, but for some reason I loved it and the everything quickly clicked into place. •••• Thank you MrB for everything and for being the other half of the DuBeadle team. Looking forward to many more years of annoying each other! •••••• #laurendloves #beadlesabout #valentinesday #itstartedwithakiss #4yearsofus #4yearsdown #loveus #otherhalves #marriage101 #marriedlife #wegotogetherlike
At the weekend we went for a wander around Bermondsey where @beadlesabout83 grew up. It was so sunny (and cold), but was pretty amazing to stand in the courtyard where he played as a kid and look through the entrance and see the Shard. Obviously it wasn’t there when he was a kid and this view never existed for him. It was lovely to go there together and see a place so full of memories for him and then see this view of the place where we first became and ‘official couple’ and then later where he proposed to me ••••••• #laurendloves #creativemyway #whatiscreativity #bermondsey #bermondseyboy #theshard #viewsoflondon #london_city_photo #londoninthesun #weekendwalks #oldvsnew #looktothesky #blueskies
I am so in love with where we live. We are surrounded by woods and views like this. I’ve lived in the NW London area my whole life (baring a few years at university and then along the river in West London) and despite coming to Stanmore all the time, never knew the little development I now live in existed. I feel very very lucky to have found this little area. After a few days of not leaving the flat and feeling a bit cabin fever-y I decided to go exploring for an hour before work yesterday and it was glorious! •••••• #laurendloves #stanmore #stanmorecommon #bentlygrove #lovewhereilive #lovewhereyoudwell #nwlondon #londonloop #londonwalks #risingsun #inspiredbynature_ #newhomeowner #exploreyourcity #explorewhereyoulive #freethingstodoinlondon
Yes to 2018! As ever in life, this past year has been filled with the most incredible highs and some pretty tough lows. Despite the lows, I can’t help but look back at 2018 and feel a massive sense of achievement for the successes and for getting through the rubbish stuff. I am going to use the good stuff to carry through to 2019. So yes to taking part in @smashingtheglass’ smashing summit at the very beginning of the year and continuing to work with the wonderful @karencinnamon_ in the early days of Brides Club! Yes to taking my creative ideas seriously and following my own intuition and having the guts to realise that what I thought was a good business idea was not what I actually wanted to do day in day out and realising that it is absolutely OK to take things in another direction (this was definitely helped by the wonderful @jencarrington_ ). Yes to two fantastic holidays with @beadlesabout83 (Disneyland Paris for our childish sides and Israel with the family for MrB to fully embrace and understand a big part of my life)! Big YES to buying our 1st home! Yes to contributing to the penultimate zine for @luckydipclub chatting about how important it is to do what you love and love what you do! Yes to the biggest summer yet with my fabulous day job with @birthrightisraeluk and growing our team! Yes to lots of new babies coming into my world (or on their way) after some tough journeys (still yet to meet one or two of you though!). Yes to friends who have also made massive leaps in their lives... couldn’t be prouder! And most importantly YES to the wonderful family and friends who have been the most supportive gang this year... you are actually the best and thinking about you all is making me cry (again) as I write... next year is going to be epic if you are all by my side (even if you are far away)! Essay over... x •••••••• cc. @melmarshall85 @jessicaamyjacobs @donsimonjacobs @alexfisher85 @steviecameron @katecams @summerhalliday @vintage_allsorts @josh_dubell @michalperson @meravlaufer @joelmacadar @phoebesaffronfindley @comeflywithv @bing_bone990 Thank you all so so much x #laurendloves #2018bestnine #bestof2018 #rollon2019 #wellnessmyway #noyearresolution
It has become a bit of a Christmas tradition for me to develop a cookie production line in the days before Christmas to produce some sweet treats for family and friends. Decided to not do that this year, but try a load of different recipes instead to try and relax and enjoy the baking. So sorry people... you probably won’t get cookies this year. But after my experimentations, you may get some meringue kisses or apple crumble cookies next year?? These kisses were from the @meringuegirls book. I love them (especially after their incredible contribution to our wedding cake!). Their recipe and tips are fantastic and am so impressed with how these turned out... first time! . . . . #laurendloves #christmasbaking #meringue #meringuekisses #meringuegirls #meringuegirlscookbook #christmasmeringues #christmaseveeve #christmascheer #christmascolouring
I love a Christmas gingerbread person. This little wooden one is very special as she was purchased on our mini moon 2 years ago in Brugge (so much Christmas there!) She has another friend and a couple of matching accessories elsewhere on the tree •••• •••• #laurendloves #christmasbauble #gingerbreadman #gingerbreadperson #justforchristmas #christmastimeishere #2yearanniversary #memoriesaremadeofthis #baubleoftheday
