I've had such an awesome day today! As you can see from the post title, we went down to see our venue in Selkirk which is near the scottish borders, oh and im not letting anyone know about the venue until we send out our invitations. I was so excited about visiting this time as it was just Chris and i going, so it made it a little more special. It was a bit surreal as the first time we went was almost a year ago and now its less than a year till the actual day itself! Eeeek! We were basically going for another talk over everything to refresh our memories, see what needed to be organised first and getting a timetable together for the day itself. Just having a look around today has made me just want to get on and organise everything already! Im so eager to get started, to start collecting things and search/look for more inspiration to decorate. Just last night i created a Wedding Decoration Inspiration board on pinterest, which you can follow if you click on the links! So that i can keep all these visual ideas together in one place and find some different ways to decorate, it also means i can send it to our wedding planner at the venue so she knows what
we're i'm looking for. AHHH SOOO EXCITING :D
The drive on the way down, is just absolutely breathe taking! Its honestly one of the most beautiful places i have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Unfortunately, i haven't gotten any photos of the place yet (i will do soon, there will be LOADS of visits) but i got plenty of video footage! I also bought a tonne of munchies to eat on the way down and back. What else is there to do when theres no radio and a looong ass journey? Exactly, eat. Eat your boredom away.

So here are some lovely instas of my greedyness :)
Jacket- Vintage (from Edinburgh)
Top- Minute mart (from abroad)
Jeans- J.W Anderson for Topshop
So as you can obviously see from the photos, im layering up alot now! Its so incredible cold in Scotland now, you'd be stupid to leave the house without an extra layer or two! I wanted something that would show off my personal style today, as well as keeping me cosy warm for the journey and scottish elements! Oh and it had to be comfortable as well since it was a bit of a distance to travel. In all honesty, i seen the jeans next to my bed knew they were like Pj's so threw them on. A red top to match, a nice warm wooly black cardigan and this gorgeous oversized vintage denim jacket. Then viola! I was ready to leave the flat, just like that!
Once we had driven back, Chris and i thought it would be lovely to finish our little day trip out with a nice meal at Frankie & Bennys in Xscape. Well to be honest he treated me!
