How to be an awesome maid of honour: My Stationary

Hi Lovelies!

I got this funky designed folder and notepad from the one and only Poundshop recently. At only £1 each you really can't go wrong. The notepad is great because it has separate sections so for example I can keep all of the hen do planning and preparations in one section, do's and don't in another and bridesmaid information and so on.  I made sure my cousin aka Bride to Be was aware that I would be jotting down any information needed that we will need to assist her with and all information on the bridesmaid front.

Being a Virgo, trust me when I say I write lists upon lists and like to attempt to keep everything organised, a lot of the time this never goes to plan hence why I have a diary that I carry with me 24/7 and masses of individual lists tucked in almost every page of it.

I keep these all in a safe place where nothing will be split onto them and also somewhere I can easily access them if I am in a rush etc.

Top tip:
- If your bride has a ribbon of the selected colour for the wedding going spare, no doubt she will forget it at least once whilst wedding planning her big day. If you are fortunate enough to given a piece, make sure you staple this to your pad/folder so you never loose it just like I have!

Hi Ladies!

Outfit Inspiration: Hippie Chic

Hi Lovelies!

I haven't posted an outfit inspiration look for a while so I thought I'd best sort myself out and get one uploaded pretty sharpish. As you might have seen in recent posts a bit of festival fever has been interjected into my blog and it is clearly still on my mind so why not post a Polyvore outfit inspired by the theme?

Take a peek at my latest inspiration outfit.....

How to be the best Maid of Honor...ever

Hi Girlies!

I have awesome news of which I couldn't be happier to announce and it's wedding related. I have been asked to be Maid of Honor in the last month by both my best friend and one of my closest cousins.. yes ladies and gentlemen I have been asked twice to hold this position and I really feel very privileged.

So I wanted to have a blog series so I could update you all every now and then, give tips and ideas. But mainly to document my thoughts and the progress of planning a wedding and helping as a bridesmaid/maid of honor as I've never had so much input to one before let alone two.

Let me tell you a little bit about my brides and the weddings due to take place.....

My close cousin
My cousin Sabrina has asked me to be maid of honor for her Greek Orthodox wedding in 2017. It will be humongous and just  like the film I think highly over the top, fabulous and a wedding not to be missed. There will be up to seven bridesmaids and this includes flower girls so although I have a lot of responsibility I will also have a lot of helping hands.

My best friend
My best friend, Rosalyn asked me and another friend to be joint maid of honors as she is only having us two as bridesmaids. Her wedding will be planned in a little over a year in 2016 and will be very small and intimate and not fussy in the slightest. I might not post an awful lot about this wedding due to my friend being one of the most private people around.

So stay tuned for updates, tips and inspirations of being 'The best maid of honor...ever'

Review: Make up Revolution Salvation Velvet Lacquer

Hi Beauts!

Taken a peek on my vine yet? No well check it out here and read through this post to find out more on this new lacquer I bought the other day....

Make up revolution 'Salvation Velvet Lacquer'

My Opinion
This goes on SO bright and I love it, for it's price it is SUCH a good item and to top it off it dries in matte form rather then gloss. And as you can see from the video it does not budge, I have been waiting my whole adult, make up wearing life for a lipgloss/lipstick/lacquer like this and I have finally found it.

I'm also really excited to try other lacquers from the brand, I went a little cray cray on the swatch testing that day too...

Overall a great product and I'm looking forward to buying more. If you've tried any of these please leave a link for me to check out your reviews.

Well lets waste no more time, here are the items I have recently bought....

I love this top... for me I have my very own 'Ken' in the form of my boyfriend haha! But all jokes aside I love the cut of this top it'll go great with some leggings and high top trainers. Ooh... I might have to search for some new ones with a pink trim *lightbulb*

Lipstick - £2 - Makeup Revolution

Lacquer - Make up Revolution

Loooove these purple shades and I have tried the lacquer, it's amazing! I'm looking forward to wearing the lipstick soon.

So those are all my goodies and for such great prices too. Have you found yourself buying items in a colour theme for no particular reason?

Review: Arbonne Renewing Body Gelee

Hi Guys!

It's purpose:
As described on the packaging the gelee is for use after sports and sun exposure at the end of each day and may be left on the body overnight.

My opinion:
I used this to rub into my boyfriends back and legs after a football match, he had been complaining recently of having aches and pains quite a lot after each match so I thought why not have a try of this after seeing some positive comments about it.

The scent is a great mixture of some of the ingredients including spearmint, tangerine and lavender.. it's a lovely scent that lingers for a while and although it is called a Gelee it's not quite a gel or even jelly form.

The gelee smooths onto the skin really easily and great to use whilst massaging into the skin, although you don't want to keep massaging for long otherwise it'll dry out too much. Tom stated that it gave a lovely cooling sensation when penetrating the skin and it really helped with his aching muscles and he felt he could relax much more that evening.

I am excited to try this out myself as I think I will save it for that use, I get flare ups with my lower back sometimes and I think this could be a great remedy for that. So overall a positive review and I am looking forward to using it even more. It's only £34 and looks like it'll last a very long time, as do the majority of Arbonne products I have used in the past- not biased at all. Once again a great product produced by Arbonne!

Has anyone used this before? The packaging also recommends that it can be mixed with Arbonne's essential massage oil but I have yet to try this out also.
