M O N D A Y | it’s not a word I dread anymore! Monday’s used to be HARD! Dragging myself out of bed, jumping onto a packed train full of equally miserable people and spending the day behind a desk working for someone else. Oh and throwing the kids into the mix made Monday’s, and basically any week day, a constant struggle. ____ Now I work for myself. And I honestly feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Don’t get me wrong, I work a LOT! I live and breathe Deluxe Blooms but it’s all worth it. And despite all my efforts to get this little business off the ground, the only thing that has made it work is YOU! My followers, my customers, my supporters. Supporting small businesses is one of the best things you can do as a consumer. And let me tell you a bit about WHY... ____ First of all, you’ll have all seen the phrase “every time you buy from a small business someone does a little happy dance” and it’s SO true. But not even just a dance. A leap of joy. Possibly a fist pump. It doesn’t matter how much you spend. Every ‘yes’ and every sale is a boost for small businesses telling them that they’re doing a good job. ____ Also, last year small businesses brought in over £3.6bn into the economy. So there is nothing small really about small businesses! 🙌🏼 ____ And last but not least, with small businesses comes better personal service and better quality products. We really care about what we’re doing and that shows in our work. ____ So who are these local small businesses and how do you find them? Well every week from now until Xmas I’ll be sharing my favourite small businesses local to #ilkley I’ll be telling you about what they do, how you can support them and what they’re selling. So get ready for some incredible small biz news being thrown your way and be sure to check them out for that all important Xmas present list! Thanks for all your support guys. You lift me up, you pay the bills and yes I’ll always be doing a happy dance!

  • O K | it’s a strange word isn’t it Ok?! We always ask people are you OK? Well for me OK isn’t good enough... __ If someone said, ‘’how was your dinner?” and you replied, “OK.” Then your food was alright but it could have been a HELL of a lot better right?! So if we don’t use OK to describe a good bit of grub then why do we think it’s acceptable that when someone is feeling OK that that’s enough?! __ As you all know it’s #mentalhealthday2018 and I’m taking a very deep breath here, because this is hard to write... I suffer from mental health. ___ I was diagnosed with PND about 2 years ago. (I’ve just realised that I’ve never written that down before and it feels very strange to see it in black and white! ) ___ Most of the time I’m great! I’m energetic and fun. I love my family and my job. I love the fact that every night we sit down for a family meal and talk to each other, like properly TALK! I’m always running 5 mins late for the school run but I’ve never really cared. My mother in law once told me its better to arrive late than dead, which made me laugh out loud! But it’s very true! ___ But then... there are those days. The heavy days. The days where nothing you do and no amount of coffee can shake off the overwhelming tiredness that you feel. I’m lucky to have FAR more great days than bad, but they still come and they’re still shit. ___ I didn’t plan on telling you guys this today! But here it is. Here’s a part of my #mentalhealth story. ___ Hopefully the more we talk about this and the more people admit their sufferings, then the more people can get help and stop suffering in silence. ___ I know I’m enough. And know that you’re enough too. As Dr Seus says, “today you are you, that is truer than true, THERE WILL NEVER BE ANYONE YOUER THAN YOU!” ___ Anyways, happy #mentalhealthday guys. I hope my honesty has helped someone today. Lots of love x ___ #depression #pnd #mum #kids #youareenough #mystory #anxiety #stress #worries #letstalk Image from @divineminds ca

  • Let’s talk about wedding photography. __ This was shot at the incredibley beautiful @rivermillsballroom in #selby What I LURVE about this venue is all the natural light. It literally floods the place and is a photographers dream! 🙌🏼 The high roof and floor to ceiling windows make a stunning backdrop for your ceremony and those all important new couple photos after the ‘I do’s’. __ So when planning your wedding, always think about the photos. Because after the big day they’re the one thing you’ll have to look back on and relive your wedding with. And plus, you’ll wanna put them in frames and cover your house with them. __ Photographer @natashacadman @natashacadmanweddings Flowers @deluxeblooms Dress @theaisle ilkley Jewellery @theaisle ilkley Hair @vickisuddabymakeupandhair Makeup @laurenrippin Event planner @chaplin_events Venue @rivermillsballroom Models @chayafligg @masontustin

    S O ... BIG NEWS!! I’m delighted to announce that we have a new team member at Deluxe Blooms! 🙌🏼 She’s always been helping really behind the scenes and I’ve had her assistance on many a wedding! But now it is official that my gorgeous MUM is going to be working with me on a Friday. __ Bernie is an absolute legend! There aren’t enough words to describe how utterly brilliant she is but here’s a few... kind, hard working, smart, organised AF, positive, supportive and of course she’s my biggest fan! She loves a G&T and her favourite holidays always start in Italy. I mean, she has a cat called Leonardo! And even started learning Italian in her 40’s. __ Here she is helping me put on my 5 inch wedding heels (what WAS I thinking? ) Ha! __ I’ll be introducing you guys to Bernie on my Instagram stories on a Friday so watch this space! Happy Saturday my lovelies xx __ #fauxflowers #weddingshoes #motherofthebride #mumtrepreneur #girlboss #loveher #newmember #congratulations #workaholic #helpinghand #motherdaughter #middletonlodgewedding #weekend #mumgoals

    H E L L O 👋🏼 yes YOU! Followers old and especially NEW!! It’s that time when I reintroduce myself after having some new followers to my page! __ First of all... thanks! For the follow, the comments and the double tapping ❤️ Honestly, you’ve no idea how much it means to me. __ My name’s Danielle, but everyone apart from my husband and bestie @iamnommi (I’m not sure why!? ) calls me DANI 😊 __ Here I am with said husband (he’s a sweetheart ) on the #ilkley Moors which is where we live. Well, obviously not ON the moors. But we do love Ilkley and it’s SO beautiful. When this picture was taken by the phenomenal @natashacadman we only had one child and were about to get married. Now it’s 5 years later and we don’t look this young any more. Mainly because we were crazy enough to have another child! __ About moi... * I’ve recently got back into the gym and it does wonders for my energy and really helps to set my day off well. * I have a weakness for jewellery and kids in dungarees- I mean come on!! They’re so god damn cute. * I love to brunch with friends. Nothing fills my heart with joy more than a text from a buddy saying ‘wanna grab a coffee’ ☕️ __ Anyway, that’s a bit about me. Today I’m busy prepping for the @fashionfiestashow in #leeds and I cannot wait. See you there friends @theaisle ilkley @charlotteboonstyling @wearitlikeruth @rachelroselyn

    Thanks to @a_yorkshire_girl for letting me know it’s @nationalpoetryday ! 🙌🏼 . __ I love poetry. I used to write endless lines of the stuff when I was at school. In fact, I can’t think why I stopped. Plus I’m the biggest, soppiest romantic you will ever meet! If Joe brings me a coffee in bed I will forgive anything! __ I chose this poem to share because a ) its short! Poems should be brief! and b ) my husband (who would kill me if he had Instagram and could read this ) always describes me as sunshine. __ Image @herheartpoetry __ #poem #poetry #nationalpoetryday #lifequotes #sunshine #lovequotes #love #life #lifequotes #romantic

    Today was a brilliant day ✌🏼 _ Coffee with friends @girlaboutyorkshire @theaisle ilkley _ Business meeting with @fashionfiestashow @shoosocial _ AND some incredible news of a brand new GLOBAL collaboration project which I cannot wait to get my teeth stuck into! Eek!! (Yes I’m being really annoying and secretive!
