January just seems to go on forever doesn’t it? I’m pretty glad to see the back of it actually, as I don’t know about you but I’m always broke after Christmas and don’t end up doing very much. However… on the plus side (since it was just Christmas) I have a few things I’ve been loving this month which I thought I’d share with you all.
My favourite meal of the day. As long as I can remember I have always absolutely loved breakfast. I’m the type of person who wakes up with an appetite and looks forward to this meal every day. Most mornings I try to have something substantial as the next time I eat is usually lunch which is quite far away. On this occasion I made a ham, mushroom and spinach omelette (2 whole eggs 1 egg white). I loved having eggs for breakfast as I find them filling and they provide a balanced breakfast with high protein and good fats. Read More
My favourite lip combinations have always been nude. Pinky nude, browny nude, dark nude, light nude, true nude… basically anything nude. I’ve never been one to be very adventurous with bright colours and quite frankly don’t think they really suit me so when it comes to lipsticks I tend to be quite boring and stick to similar shades. That being said, I still have hundreds of lipsticks and I personally don’t think any of them are the same shade (convincing my fiancé this on the on the other hand is a different matter!). Read More
Over the past two weeks I’ve been trying my best to be as healthy as possible but I have definitely found not snacking the hardest part. Does anyone else find meals quite easy to keep healthy but snacks nearly impossible!?! When all you really want to do is reach for the chocolate bar or have a cup of tea WITH biscuits nothing seems to come close.
I’ve tried quite a few products this month which have helped me keep on track and still hit my sugar cravings (in a more healthy way than a dairy milk bar!) which I thought I would share with you.
These days your wedding shoes are nearly just as important as the dress you wear, (although many people do not even see them). I’ve been asked so many times ‘What shoes will you wear?’ I guess as the wedding dress is often top secret at least I could share my ideas on the shoes.
When picking my dream pair I definitely did not go for the ‘classic’ bridal look. In fact I think I went for the more high fashion look and I can imagine they are either a love or hate shoe to be honest.
This was always something that I knew I would splash out on as I do not own a pair of designer shoes and decided that for my wedding day it would be the perfect time (excuse) to treat myself to a pair. For me, it wasn’t hard to decide on the exact style and designer I wanted but I did take a few things into consideration beforehand! Below are some tips to help if you’re struggling to decide which pair would be the ones for you OR do not want to spend a small fortune on your shoes (I have found some great dupes).
Apologies in advance for how many times I say ‘shoes’ in this post…
I’ve been so excited to share some of my DIY tips and tricks that I have used throughout the wedding process. As you all know, weddings are extremely expensive and where I could try to do things myself and save some money I was definitely happy (plus it’s often an excuse to get together with the bridesmaids and have some fun!). When I first got engaged I was so excited to ask the special people in my life to be my bridesmaids but I knew I wanted to do it in a creative way. Pintrest is a dream for this sort of thing and helped me to think of fun, special ways I could ask them without it costing a fortune. I loved the ‘will you be my bridesmaid’ esque boxes and got making them straight away. Read More
As many of you may or may not know, I’m getting married this year and for me January is a time to set some clear goals that I want to achieve before the big day. I know, I know everyone says the same thing ‘new year… new me’ but this year I’m determined to look and feel my best for my wedding. The start of a new year felt like the best time to start over and accomplish my aspirations for the year.
Although I’ve set many of these goals based on my wedding, they are quite generic and I’m sure after all the over indulging this Christmas, many of you are hoping for a fresh start this year. Read More
