Caribbean Living’s 1st Birthday

Well hi there peeps, and a very Happy Friday to you! 

It’s Caribbean Living’s 1st birthday tomorrow and I thought we should mark the occasion in style!  It’s been a fantastic year since I jumped on this interior design bandwagon, with highlights including very nearly finishing my course and being able to start earning money again (!), having my first article published and a second one on the way, meeting a bunch of lovely new blog friends, and now having the crazy-exciting opportunity to plan my very own wedding to boot (not strictly interior design I’ll admit, but designing an event is loosely similar to designing a room – come on, gimme a break, I’m super excited about it!).  Thank you for all the support, dear readers.  Send me a note or leave a comment – I’d love to hear what you’re interested in reading about!  

I came across these exquisite images on Style Me Pretty a while back, and decided that this is what I’d like the blog’s 1st birthday party to look like.  It’s actually a wedding shoot by Ozzy Garcia and Luxe Fete, but would work for any occasion – it’s a beaut, enjoy and have a happy weekend!

    Hey Happy Birthday Caribbean Living! You were born on the same day as the Boris Bikes which have also been a phenomenal success and great fun. I shall have a drink for you tomorrow and has been lovely to chat to you too.

    I would like to see the following posts, here’s a challenge for you!

    John Travolta’s airport house
    Pamela Anderson’s shabby chic house
    A post about Jamie Drake
    And….. a post about Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen!

    I think perhaps this should be a new game, we should all challenge each other to write posts about something….?

    Well done Elly, your posts brighten up my day and it’s been a pleasure meeting you, virtually at least xx

      Ooh, I like the challenge Annie, alrighty you’re on! Haha, well I am most honoured to share the day with old Boris (and his bikes)…

      Thank you for the kind words, I’m really glad you enjoy the blog and it’s been lovely ‘meeting’ you too! xx

    Happy birthday! Great pics, makes me feel like I could be in the Caribbean too! (but don’t read Caribbean Moon if you want that feeling – its all gore and murders, your posts are much happier!). And I’d like to hear your thoughts on old LLB and his fabulous shirts!
    ps I’d like to have dinner at the spot above, without any wind though, no so keen on sandy sarnies!

    • Elly Hails says:

      Haha, yeh sandy sarnies are a no go for sure. Okey doke, well I shall try to dig up some research on old LLB and his crazy shirts for next week – watch this space!

      Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone! xx
