We got engaged!

Some of you have probably already seen on Facebook or Instagram, but I wanted to officially let you guys know that Ben proposed on the Full Figured Fashion Week White Cruise!!!


The night of the White Cruise was our eight year anniversary, we were dressed to the nines, cruising past the Statue of Liberty, a cocktail or two in hand and enjoying the sunset on the top deck of the cruise ship. I was so shocked and unbelievably happy when Ben dropped to his knee, that I burst into tears. These amazing pictures were snapped by Danimezza and we are both so thankful for her quick photography skills!














As you can see from the pictures I am pretty excited! The whole proposal was so romantic and thought out, I honestly feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Thank-you to everyone for all the well-wishes, I have been overwhelmed by the response from the cyber world and am honoured to be able to share this next adventure with you! Another huge load of thanks to Dani for these amazing photos- how many people can say they have pictures from their proposal night!!

I have a MASSIVE stack of FFFWeek posts coming up and we have just touched down into Orlando tonight- so there is much bloggy goodness to catch up on! And I have to catch up with all your blogs too!!! Chat to you all soon- your newly engaged Olivia xx (OMG that feels so good to say that!!! ;)
