The Hen Party

How time flies. This time two weeks ago I was getting ready for my sisters hen party and in another two weeks she will be getting married. It has come round in the blink of an eye.

I’ve already shared my Christmas wishes, but here is a little bit about how I like to prepare for the big day.
