After your big day all you want is to head away on your honeymoon, setting sail on a yacht as your start your new life together, would be perfect. Imagine having a yacht just for you (other than the crew), lots of privacy away from a busy resort, sitting on the deck looking at miles of ocean. A fabulous way to relax and indulgence on food, drinks and each other.

A yacht is one of the most stylish ways to honeymoon, waking up in different locations each day. Swimming in crystal clear bays, visiting islands that are not in the tourist books. The Greece islands are perfect for this, I have visited Crete on a couple of occasions and when we return next year we would love to charter a catamaran to see the island from the water. Your evenings would be spent enjoying a glass of local wine, while watching the stars. Visiting the tavernas for beautiful local food and drinks while on the land. If you love the water, then being out at sea is perfect for scuba diving, snorkelling and swimming, as while on a yacht you are only a jump away from seeing the world below the surface.

Luxury Yachts

Although many yachts sleep more than just 2 people, it would give you plenty of space to enjoy your honeymoon. Each of the Vernicos fleet of yachts is finished to the most luxurious standards, so you know that whichever your choice for your honeymoon, luxury is it’s heart. Each yacht will have crew on board, they are there to ensue your time on board is everything you dreamed it would be. Although they will be on board it will no effect your privacy, so you can enjoy your honeymoon without having to worry about the crew being there. Why not look at Vernicos Yachts chartering services for your honeymoon?

Although your honeymoon budget would need is be on the higher end, it would be worth every penny. Have you ever thought about having your honeymoon on board a yacht? I honestly think it would make for the most romantic once in a lifetime trip,

Luxury stationery from Executive Pens Direct

I have been a stationery lover for years. I can remember buying new items for each year at school, wanting to get my hands on the newest and most popular pencil case. Now I am no so much up to date on the coolest items, I just know what I like. I am still drawn to stationery in any shop, the more luxurious the better.

Executive Pens Direct

One thing I have never had but have always wanted is a calligraphy set. Executive Pens Direct offered to send me a personalised leather note book and a starter calligraphy set. Something that I can play with, when I got married I really wanted to have my invitations written in a calligraphy hand, however it didn’t happen.

I was sent a Manuscript Masterclass calligraphy set that comes with two pens, numerous ink cartridges, a practice pad and guidelines book, to help you with the writing of each letter. All put within a storage tin, to keep it all safe. It’s going to take some practice, but I will give it my best shot. I love to learn a new skill. I cannot wait to try out different coloured inks and different sized tips, to create something exciting. When I have got to grips with it all, I might even order myself a feather quill style calligraphy pen. They all look fabulous.

Along with my calligraphy set I was sent a lovely medium brown leather personalised journal. The quality is fabulous, my Hubby said straight away you can smell the leather. I have had it personalised with C & P so I can take it with me for various blog event that I attend. The gold lettering really stands out and looks high quality, which I am really pleased about. When you place an order online, although it shows you how it will look, it’s just not quite the same. For my note book, I think it looks so much better than what it did online.

Executive Pens Direct have a fabulous range of stationery items, personalised note pads, pens, calligraphy kits and so much more. If you are looking for Christmas gifts for a stationery lover, then Executive Pens Direct should be your first stop.

 

*Thank you Executive Pens Direct for sending me, my beautiful calligraphy set and note book.* 

Engagement Ring Shopping Mistakes That Men Make

One of the most challenging things a man can do is to select an engagement ring for their fiancée. There are many questions that need to be addressed, such as, “Will she like the ring?” and “Can I afford to buy a suitable item?” If you are planning to pop the question in the near future and are concerned about the ring selection, here are some common mistakes to avoid.

Engagement Ring Shopping Mistakes That Men Make

  • Buying the Wrong Size – This is a common occurrence, as many men assume the ring size based on her height and weight, yet some women have a bigger build than others and making a mistake like this will put a serious damper on your proposal. There are a number of ways to ensure you know her ring size, which include “borrowing: a ring that she wears on the third finger of her left hand, or measuring the finger with a piece of string. You can also enlist the help of one of her friends, which would ensure you don’t buy a ring that is too large or small.
  • Failure to Set a Budget – If you start looking at engagement rings with no real figure in mind, you will likely end up paying more than you can afford. An online search will reveal a wide selection of diamond engagement rings at prices to suit every budget, and buying from an online jeweller will ensure you do not pay more than you should.
  • Unsure of Her Taste in Jewellery – It is crucial that you have a good idea of her taste in jewellery if you want to be sure that she will love wearing the ring. This is not difficult, as all you have to do is take note of the jewellery she wears on a daily basis, while enlisting the help of her best friend will also ensure you get it right. You may want to get her one of those engagement rings with pink diamonds from Diamonds.co.nz which will be perfect if your girlfriend likes something unique and pretty.
  • Lack of Knowledge About Diamonds – Purchasing diamonds demands that you at least understand the basics of diamond grading – the 4Cs, which are the cut, clarity, colour and carat. Do some online research on understanding diamond grading and make sure that the stones you buy have GIA Certification. By sourcing a reputable online jeweller, you are all but eliminating the risk of purchasing inferior stones and if you really want to impress your partner, why not have a diamond ring custom made?
  • Lack of Practicality – While a diamond engagement ring with raised stones might look great, it is likely that the prong settings will catch on fabric, which causes the stone setting to loosen. Choose a setting that does not have sharp edges and always remember that she will want to wear this ring at all times, so the design must be very durable.

If you follow the above advice when looking at diamond engagement rings, the process should be smooth, and by ensuring the ring size is correct and she likes the style, your wedding proposal should be one that is remembered for all the right reasons.
