Last Saturday, Sam and I were joined with many a lovely family & friend for our engagement party ♥
The main reason for the party was to get every one in one place, so we could tell them about our Florida plans for the wedding. It was of course to see, and catch up with with loved ones, eat good food & drink (a bit too much) fizzy wine in the sun.

We decided to let one of our heart balloons go with a little note on, hoping little balloony would fly away and be found by some one miles away (and not pop in mid air). It was Sam's idea to do so, and I'm a sentimental mess most of the times, so I just thought it was lovely.

Dress from Peacocks*| Necklace from Choies*

I got to wear my pretty Peacocks dress on Sunday, one that I've had for a while and been saving for the right day. Oh my gosh, it's perfect. So many dresses aren't the right style, or just far too short for my lanky legs....this one however is a beaut.
The length is perfect to get my pasty pins out, so they can actually get some sun without flashing my bum. The sleeves make the style right up my street, and I love how floaty it is. Literally feel like I'm gushing about a dress, but it's not many times I prefer things on me, than on the hanger.
I really like my lion necklace too, RARRRRRR. It's one that I have been eyeing up for a while, and although a little Mr T, I think it's pretty cool. I am a gangsta after all (brap brap)
