Hello and welcome to the weekend!

I don't know about you, but I'm actually quite shocked at how fast January 2012 is flying by. Before you know it, it'll be March and Zee and I will be in San Francisco.

So, I'm determined to make the most of London life over the next couple of months. Meeting up with my beloved friends and family, exploring places I really should have explored years ago. (Can you believe I've never been to Hampstead Heath?) Too many times I've put off things till tomorrow/next week/next month so I just want to make the most of being right here, right now. Starting with a date tonight with my handsome husband. I'm going to get all dolled up then we're going to hit the town and have some fun!

Here are a few links from around the web that I've been loving this week...

Real Weddings

A lesson in simple, chic, modern barn wedding decor ~ black frames of photos and inspirational quotes/words that represent the couple, hanging lanterns at different heights, craft paper esque runners to add texture and eclectic bottles filled with white florals. Oh and there were wheelbarrows too.

~ I love everything about this bride's style. The daring low back to her sparkly, silver sequin wedding dress, her vintage hair, her chic red lips and nails. It's just so sultry Hollywood.

This wedding actually caused a bit of a stir on Facebook. There was a tasteful shot of the beautiful bride getting ready that featured a hint of butt crack so Facebook removed the image! Shocking huh?

Well-Groomed is a blog for men that want to be just that on their wedding day. I love checking in to see all the manly goodness. This week it was geek chic spectacles for grooms. The thicker and nerdier the better.

~ And finally, this had me in absolute stitches!

So what are you up to this weekend? How do you intend to make the most out of being right here, right now?

And all you lovely UK readers, do you have any must sees/dos in London (or England) before we jet off to the US?
