The Royal Honeymoon

Well, we don't yet know where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are going for their honeymoon. To be honest I am not interested - its their private time, they're married and they shouldn't have to face half the world's media to get that privacy. But, it is interesting that the Daily Mail is reporting that their honeymoon location is somewhere in the Indian Ocean and is 'very Robinson Crusoe-like'. £4000 a night. Right. It doesn't take a genius to figure it out.

I'm left wondering if Kate Middleton has been rummaging through my wedding scrap book (I don't have one... Really) but there have been one too many coincidences if this honeymoon rumour is true.

This is one of MY ideal holiday destinations... picture me stomping my feet!

The award winning resort really is paradise on earth. A whole villa to yourself, a private butler, cook and transport to the main island whenever you request it. The entire resort prides itself on its commitment to eco issues (it was built using locally sourced wood) and they have a 'no news no shoes policy' (yes, they confiscate your shoes upon arrival). Jump off your villa whenever you fancy a swim or sleep under the stars on your outdoor bed. Request your own private picnic on one of the two small private desert islands nearby or go for a sunset boat ride with dolphins and sea turtles. Oh and HALAL FOOD. (All this info from memory - I impress myself sometimes).

Pretty much perfect.

I really sound like a snob but I don't care about the butlers and all the other small luxuries they throw in. I love this place so much for their philosophy and also how REMOTE it is. It truly is the perfect desert island.

♥ Quote of the Week

“People always ask me, ‘You have so much confidence. Where did that come from?’ It came from me. One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. I wear colors that I really like, I wear makeup that makes me feel pretty, and it really helps. It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see.” - Gabourey Sidibe

The Trees Didn't Make Me Cry!

I am so happy! She did the trees very differently to how I would have, so I sat back with a bowl of popcorn and enjoyed the Wedding immensly. I liked Princess Catherine's dress (is this how she is to be addressed now?) but it was kind of predictable. Well, I predicted long sleeves, tiny waist and a v-neck and I dreamt that she'd have a lot of lace and a long-ish train. My talents truly know no bounds.

Many people have commented that the dress looks very similar to Grace Kelly's wedding dress, but I also think it was reminiscent of Princess Margaret:


I wont post any pictures, because God knows you've probably had enough of them today, but there is one image which I think deserves a WITW spotlight:

The bridesmaid, not the kiss.

All in all a fairytale wedding. Not quite my cup of tea but it was lovely to see such a happy couple. And I did choke up a bit when Prince William told his bride at the alter that she looks beautiful.

The Royal Wedding Will Have Me in TEARS!

No. It is not enough that Catherine KATE Middleton gets to have her prince, a glass carriage, a tiara and everything else but she just HAD to nick MY tree idea! Ok, well I don't really have any fantasies of marrying a prince but I am sure many others do. But STILL - MY TREES! She couldn't leave me just one thing.

And to rub salt in my wounds, this is what I had to pay £5 of my good money for:

I'm so scared someone might see it and mistake me for someone who cares.
You can tell I'm annoyed because even her name is annoying me. Not every girl grows up to be a princess but that's ok because some girls (me) manage fine with a day job, bills and some sexy TREES - but wait, I forget, trees aren't sacred any more!

Hmph. I wasn't even fussed until I stumbled across pictures of MY trees attending HER wedding.
