Top Table Planner

The beauty of using a shareable table planner like Toptableplanner is a  is being able to email you partner, family and planner (or venue) with the list, which can then be changed very easily when someone realises that you have sat warring parties next to each other or in stab-able distance. Gee whizz, I kid. I hope you don’t have warring parties involved in your wedding and if you
do, tell them to leave it at home. You can also choose to keep track of food allergies, menu…if they’re single or not!Screen Shot 2015-02-27 at 2.23.17 pmcouple-toptableplanner-laptop

My favourite new travel website that features all of the ‘error’ fares that are mistakenly offered Secretflying.com

I promised to post the link to Jessica’s DIY hair mask. I can’t promise I won’t eat it before it reaches my head…coconut and honey! YUM!
