Something about the colourful itty bitty nature of sprinkles [aka hundreds and thousands] that I just can’t get enough of at the moment. In cakes, on ice cream, around a cocktail rim, the little rainbow sugar delight makes the most cute and delicious detail.
Perhaps it’s also the fond memories of baking fairy cakes as a kid and hence probably bouncing merrily off the walls from the consumed E numbers afterwards. Ahhh happy memories! The big kid in me still says these are fun, and so many ways to use them!
Amidst all this grey, red green and white, my eye seems to be drawn away to bright colours, clashing colours and in particular oranges and pinks. These colours are the perfect accent at a wedding against white. Used sparingly with florals, nails, shoes or decorations it’s a burst of colour in an oh-so-fashionable way.

Would you be bold enough to colour clash? Pinks and reds? Yellows and blues or even Navy and black?
At the risk of sounding like a total girl, I do love a hint of pink. Match that with the gleam of gold and well, I’m in heaven. I’m currently lusting after everything with a rose gold tone. This colour really suits blondes, and it is such a beautiful tone of metal it makes the perfect accessory for a wedding day treat.

If Santa is reading this, please PLEASE – I’ve been so good and hardworking this year. If I could find those Brian Atwood heels in my sack I’d be ever so grateful and I promise I’ll wear them for my wedding day!
Fan your husband to be, wear hearts in your hair, on your shoes or on your dress and always say I Love You…
