i Heart Wines | Competition *CLOSED*

With another bank holiday rapidly approaching this weekend I thought it only appropriate that we run a little competition on Lippy In The City to get you into the relaxed, out-of-office spirit.

I have partnered up with i heart wines again to offer two of my readers the opportunity to win two mini bottles of wine each as well as a tote bag to pop them in. These mini bottles are absolutely fab to take away with you on holiday camping, or to pack into a picnic basket alongside your favourite slices of cheese, crackers and grapes.

I took three mini bottles away with me when I went glamping last summer and they were the perfect fire side treat (paired with a few very indulgent s'mores). Check out my review here.

To enter simply follow myself, and i Heart Wines on Twitter. You MUST be over 18 to enter. The competition is open until the Saturday 13th May – Good luck!

A little update (plus my engagement pictures) | Lippy In The City

Let me start off by apologising for being a little MIA recently, time has been running away with me and I can't believe its been nearly four months since I last published a post - Let me fill you in...

As some of you may already know, I'm currently studying a Law Degree with the Open University which I do on a part-time basis alongside working my full-time 'day job' too. To say it's challenging at times is an understatement, but I'm honestly loving every minute of it. The late nights, and early mornings are paying off and I'm starting to feel really accomplished... Only four years left to go... lol.

When I started my studies, I knew that my little blog would have to take a back seat, and that my priorities would naturally change. Taking the break has made me realise how much I love blogging and that I genuinely miss it when I don't get the chance to update you on a regular basis. My posts are going to be more sporadic than I'd like going forward but I really hope you'll stick with me, I'm not ready to hang up my 'blogger' hat just yet.

Secondly, I got engaged! My boyfriend Garrad and I went on holiday to Cuba in January and whilst on a day trip to Havana, he got down on one knee in the middle of Revolution Square and asked me to marry him! It was a complete shock and I was over the moon. It was such a lovely experience letting our friends and family know (even though most of them already knew and I was the only one left to be surprised) and to be honest I spent the rest of the holiday on cloud nine, it was perfect.

We are currently planning our wedding and have set a date for October 2018. Garrad has been helping me with everything and I'm pleased to say I've been told that I haven't turned into a Bridezilla just yet.

This past weekend Garrad and I had an engagement photo shoot with our wedding photographer at Castle Coch in South Wales. We had instantly felt at ease with him and seeing the pictures we knew that we had chosen the right photographer to capture our wedding day. Seeing these pictures makes me so excited even though we have 18 months to wait.

I'm thinking of doing a few wedding-planning related posts so please let me know in the comments if there's any details you'd love to know more about. Speak soon... xoxo
