[New Video] How We Met + Endorse Gay Marriage!

We'll clearly on a roll with the videos lately. We have got many, many requests for us to make a 'How We Met' video so you know what?... We did just that! For all those who are new to us, or think you know the story, have a watch and find out!



Also, as a side note the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill was introduced to parliament on 24th January. MP's will be debating this issue dear to our hearts on 5th February. Stonewall, the gay rights charity, have made a call for all those gay and straight who support gay marriage to write to their MP to tell them so, and hope that they will support the bill. To find out more, visit Stonewall's website

We have written to our MP- have you?

Hopefully this will mean our wegging will indeed be a legal WEDDING!

Love Stories ♥ Toy & Joy

Finally we bring you some more aloha love to brighten up your screens. Turns out we're not the only lesbians doing long distance to the beautiful destination that is Hawaii, some other lesbian has the task of enduring the beautiful scenes that Hawaii has to offer.. and that is Toy! Well someone's got to do it! Not only does her girlfriend live in Hawaii, but she herself lives in North Carolina! What a coincidence!! (She is a bit more faboosh than us though.) Don't take our word for it, here is their story...


Love Stories ♥ Toy & Joy


Fall 2010 Toy was having a regular night on the computer. She was on a website by the name of Downelink. A beautiful girl by the name of Joy hits her up via chat. They talk for roughly a week via text and just like most random moments on the PC they stop talking. No harm, no foul, but that’s just the way that part in the story went.


5 months later during the top of the winter 2011 Toy decides to have a night out on the town. Not knowing where the night would take her she just knew she wanted to have fun and ironically so did Joy. Both heading out to the club to spend time with potential boos they bump into each other. A week later they had an amazing night at Joy’s place and let’s just say the night ended with Toy’s first kiss from a girl and it was quite magical. The magic did not just end there though a couple of weeks later they attended a “Prince” concert and became an item on that same amazing night!!! Oh yea J Only to break up a week later… Let the story unfold, lol.


The exact night was Friday, April 1st… Yeah April Fool’s and boy did Toy feel like one. Joy wanted to slow things down a bit and truly get to know Toy before she left for the military June of that year. A very unhappy yet understanding Toy carried on with her fun-loving friendship with Joy and a month and 4 days later Joy asked Toy out again!!! The second go round of their relationship the girls thought it would be the perfect time for them to meet each other’s family. Toy’s family welcomed Joy in with open arms. Joy’s family did as well for the most part. Her mother was a little hesitant of the “gay” association that her daughter would make her have BUT all was well when she found out Toy had a love of fashion just like her, lol. With Joy leaving in June the girls thought it would be great for them to take a road trip to NYC PRIDE June 2011.


They stuck things out from June-September 2011 while Joy was away in Basic Training. They were able to speak on the phone once a week during basic training and imagined things would be easier when Joy was in tech school but things were not. They found themselves arguing and just being angry. Angry that they could not see each other and confused about what was next for their relationship… As you all may have guessed: they broke up for 8 months.


Reuniting in April of 2012 the two vowed to each other to work things out and never part ties again, at least not at the expense of distance. Toy traveled all the way across the United States, from NC to Hawaii, to visit Joy for two weeks in July to help rekindle the fire and desire the two had within. Let’s just say from the time she landed to the time she left it was like a dormant volcano had erupted, pair was explosive with love J Joy has since been to NC in October 2012 visiting Toy and family for 3 weeks! The two have a very promising future ahead and only time will tell where love will take them next.

For an extended version of their love story please visit their blog:

XOXOXO --- Joy and Toy
You really must check out their blog and videos, Toy cracks us up! This video where she filmed on the way to collect Joy from Charlotte airport (where Megan used to fly into visit Whitney) had us laughing so much, particularly when she thinks she spots her plane (at 1.57min)!!...


Best of luck girls and hopefully we'll meet you along the way at NC or Hawaii!!

Wegan's Winter Round Up!

Long over due, and just before we all put Christmas out of minds until the end of this year, here's a run down of what we did this Christmas- including Whitney's mother visiting the UK for the very first time!!
We started off our Winter festivities with our friends Sarah and Danielle by heading off to Winter Wonderland in London, Hyde Park. This was the first time we had been, and we were expecting to be surrounded by a ridiculous amount of people. London around Xmas time sure is crazy! 



We popped to Oxford street and then onto Winter Wonderland. We had a great time wondering around, drinking mulled wine followed by a litre of beer in the German garden! 



It was a great day, Danielle and I were brave and joined Sarah and Whitney on a (small but scary) roller coaster (screamed so much my throat then hurt!) & I even managed to convince Whitney to ride a bucking bull. Hilarious!! We enjoyed a yummy dinner at a fantastic modern take on Mexican food, Wahaca's followed by Yo Sushi the next day.


Christmas this year was guaranteed to be special, not only was it the first one we had shared together for years AND living in our own home together. It marked the first time that Whitney's mum had finally visited the UK! At first it was very surreal to have her here, and we couldn't wait for her to experience the life that we lead. Turns out that she loves the English culture (we knew she would), she enjoyed sampling beers in pubs and thought that Ploughmans and fish and chips were amazing! It's great witnessing someone experiencing things for the first time, even if its a pickled onion!! Adorable.
For Whit's mum's first day 'Momma Kelly' as I call her, we headed to London for her to see the sights (not that she got to see much in the Christmas crush) and for her to get Whitney's xmas present- a Louis Vuitton bag! Turns out it's cheaper for her to buy it here than in America! 




We had dinner at the restaurant at Harvey Nichols, the Season. To be honest we headed there for the cocktail time but it was time to eat. The best part was the champagne cocktail with edible glitter! "Nutcracker Fizz"!



There afters we spent a lot of time visiting my family and Momma Kelly got on with my parents like a house on fire! Just like we knew they would!

Whitney driving in the UK- Uh Oh! Her mum preferred my driving ;)


Then came Christmas day! For the first time in my life, I did not wake up at my family home. Instead we woke up at Wegan Manor, and Momma Kelly had laid out our stockings and presents beautifully.. or should I say santa did ;) I was a very lucky lady and treated very generously by Whitney and her mum with a long champ bag, ray bans uggs and hunters!! Best xmas yet!


My wife looking gorgeous with her new Louis Vuitton bag!

After opening presents and having breakfast, we headed over to my parents house for Christmas dinner and to be surrounded by family. It was truly a great Christmas!


With sisters Lauren and Bethany.

Sister in laws!

Cousins and in-laws!

Coffee machine from my parents!

Then the funniest thing EVER happened. We all suddenly noticed a burning smell.. SOMETHING WAS ON FIRE!! We were all checking the oven and looking around... It dawned on me that it smelt like burnt hair so I thought a strand had fallen onto the hob and had caught alight. Then Whitney was trying to get my attention and grabbed me whispering "It was my hair!! My hair was on fire!!" Oh my goodness!! Whitney had lent back with a glass of champagne and caught her beautiful gold locks in fire!! Her mum had noticed and dragged her upstairs to the bathroom to get rid of the FLAMES! We were all in hysterics, as luckily Whitney and her hair were totally fine.. if just a bit burnt and smelly!! So learn your lesson there folks.. Keep long hair away from candles!!

Spot the burnt ends!

Still smiling!


I managed to also complete a very impossible task this xmas.. surprise Whitney!! I had offered this Chanel print she had been wanting for a while, as well as a gold frame to go with it and managed to hide it all from Whitney! Phew! She was very surprised and VERY happy. 



We then had a lovely Boxing Day and ate more until our stomachs were content!

Whitney's mum's last full day was the day after Boxing Day, so we decided to drive her around to see some sights. We took her to the quaint village Bray and we ate at the Hinds Head (owned by Chef Heston Blumenthal). We decided we didn't like the look of any of the main dishes so we just order starters, which were rather yummy.




We loved the bathrooms!

We then wanted to show Kelly Danesfield house, the place where we celebrated our Civil Partnership as she could not be there (though she will be for the Wegging!) It was surreal and lovely to return, exactly three months later on as wife and wife! Kelly had her first experience of Afternoon Tea, and needless to say she loved it!


Re-inacting... or not quite! haha.







Before we knew it, it was sadly time to say goodbye. We had the most lovely week with her here, and a great bonding time for her & I! Next we will visit her in America in March / April and we can't wait to get our feet on American soil!


We welcomed the New Year in with my family, and look forward to what this year has in store!



Hope you enjoyed our round up of our Christmas break and that you had a fantastic one as well!!

Comment if you made it to the end of this long arse post ;) HAHA.
