Update for you!

I've managed to collect an absolute tonne of photographs and things to write about, to the extent that it has all become rather overwhelming! I have a fair amount of inane news to share, so buckle up, and let's take a trip into Candy's exciting life!
Dan and I went back to Cambridge to his old college, for a May Ball. It was really nice to relive a slice of the old student life; quite possibly the best slice, if we're going to be honest! I wore a dress that I bought from Camden market, although I've seen similar dresses all over the place in cheap market-stall shops. My necklace is a family heirloom of sorts although I don't think it goes back particularly far. The matching earrings don't actually match the necklace at all; I bought them for my Dad's wedding back in 2007.

The dress was floor length but there aren't really any satisfactory pictures of my entire length! It sort of looks like I am indicating my ovaries in this photo!
I made this rainbow cake for my lovely friend Tara, and I also took lots of photos during the making process, so at some point, you can expect a tutorial of sorts! It weighed over 3kgs and I brought it all the way from London to Brighton in once piece (oh ho ho, cake humour).
Here's a sneaky peaky at our wedding venue! We've set a date, and so very soon I shall begin the flurry of sending save-the-date cards! Obviously, I am very excited, but there's still a ton to do!
On the day we visited our wedding venue, we also took a brief detour to Brighton where Dan and I both got new ear piercings at Punktured (my favourite piercing place, and the only one I will ever recommend to anyone! I've had four very joyful piercing experiences there!), and then had incredible cake at Marwood which has fast become one of my favourite coffee shops in Brighton, which is saying something!
Wonderful Tilly and I made some super saucy cherry pie for our Twin Peaks marathon, which was enjoyed by all. I am probably already ready for another Twin Peaks marathon... Let's not lie, I'm ALWAYS ready for a Twin Peaks marathon! Here's our pie in EXTREME CLOSEUP.

I also attended two weddings and celebrated a couple of birthdays. Tomorrow I am off down to Brighton for my gorgeous friend Eleanor's birthday, at which I shall dress up as Suzy Butler from Moonrise Kingdom, and then on Tuesday we are off to Paris for a little jaunt! I can't wait to discover some vintage shops and patisseries in Paris, as well as visiting some perfume houses. Eleanor is 'becoming a woman' and thus must choose her signature scent whilst we are away!
