I’m Lucy, and I run the street style and fashion blog Florals & Corals and Instagram @lucyflorals. I’m 27 and from Glasgow, Scotland. I live with my fiancé Chris, who works in IT consultancy, and this year we have some serious plans! Starting with our wedding in September, when we are due to get married in front of a small group of family and friends at The Peninsula hotel in Paris.
Chris and I first met in our final year at high school and this August marks the 10 year anniversary of our first date (crazy when I think about it!). Throughout those 10 years, Chris has been there to support me through thick and thin and now, I can’t imagine life without him. We have really become inseparable.
He’s my best friend. We do everything together. Whether it’s travel, work or sitting in front of the TV with a series on; he is always by my side.
Every day is full of fun, laughter and happiness from the minute I wake up in the morning to the moment I fall asleep at night. We both feel really lucky to have found each other and truly can’t wait for our wedding this year.
Speaking of which, let’s talk proposals. Chris proposed in June of last year, whilst on holiday at the Grand Floridian hotel in Orlando. We were walking around the beautiful grounds in the summer sun before our scheduled afternoon tea (my absolute favourite) when Chris got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
As we holiday in Florida every year, I truly didn’t expect it. I was both shocked and delighted at the same time. I couldn’t wait to tell my family and as they were also in Florida at the same time it was amazing to be able to meet with them later that night and enjoy the celebrations.
When we got back to the hotel room, Chris had arranged for roses, champagne, chocolates and a new pair of Stuart Weitzman shoes waiting in the room for me. The perfect end to the perfect day and I haven’t even mentioned the ring yet as I am saving the best for last. For our engagement, Chris chose the most beautiful ROX yellow cushion cut diamond halo. It was perfect. Let me explain why…
I have always loved ROX, not only for the beautiful pieces they sell but the incredible service that they provide no matter what you are looking for. I feature them regularly on my blog so it was a natural fit really, and no doubt he knew I would have loved any ring from ROX.
As for the yellow, I watched a film many years ago that featured a yellow diamond necklace and I fell in love with coloured diamonds. I made a mental note to myself that day that if I was every lucky enough to own any diamonds, they would be yellow. Luckily for me, I have a boyfriend who pays attention…sometimes!
Joking aside, I love the ring that Chris chose for me and wouldn’t change it for the world. It’s striking, unique and fits in with my style perfectly. Especially when I layer with other jewellery.
>As of yet, we haven’t decided on our wedding bands but I have tried on some beautiful ones in ROX that fit perfectly with my ring, as has Chris. This time, we get the pleasure of picking them together.
