Wedding Wednesday – Things I’ve Learnt From Working in the Wedding Industry 

I’ve been working in be wedding industry for several years now and over time, working on so many weddings, I’ve come to learn a few tips and tricks along with general realisations.  It’s hard to switch off  Although my job is technically 9am until 2pm, I often find myself thinking about work when I’m at home. When I left my full time wedding coordinator job in May 2015, it was...

Pregnancy Diary – 33 Weeks 

Yeah so I totally missed the 32 week pregnancy diary… A lot has actually happened since my 30 week pregnancy post so I figured I better post an update now at 33 weeks.  Firstly, we had our much awaited 4D scan at just over 30 weeks. This was something I had had done when pregnant with Carly and knew I wanted to have with this baby as well.  Unfortunately for...

Beauty Review – Barry M Strobe Cream & The Body Shop Baked to Last Bronzing Powder 

Wow, does this post have the longest ever blog title or what?! Basically, rather than doing two separate reviews I figured I would do both at once mainly because since I bought these two products, I’ve been using them together and I love the results.  I’ve had my eye on the baked to last bronzer for ages, ever since me and my sister were window shopping and both loved it...

Monday Musings – Decluttering Our House

With a new baby on the way and a house move imminent, I’ve been meaning to start sorting out our belongings for a long time. Watching my friend Kirsty’s YouTube video on minimalism last week gave me the push I needed to get started (if you haven’t watched Kirsty’s videos yet, make sure you take a look as they’re totally motivating!).  On my day off on Wednesday I think my...

Foodie Friday – My Top 5 Snack Foods 

Ok so I have a teeny tiny confession to make. I love a good snack. In fact snacking is one of my worst traits and the reason why I’m probably resembling a whale more than a glowing earth mother during this pregnancy.  I have very little self control and it only takes Ed to mention the word snack and I’m craving sugary or salty goodness on my tastebuds… These are my...

Wedding Wednesday – My Wedding Planning File 

As you may or may not know, I’ve been married before and the wedding I’m currently planning will be my second marriage. One of the things I found incredibly useful for my first wedding was the wedding file I put together with everything to do with the wedding inside. It was an invaluable tool in the lead up to the big day and when I started planning my wedding with...

Mini Beauty Review – Essence Eyeshadow 

Ok so I have like a massive backlog of beauty reviews I want/need to do after a big (well, big for me, probably tiny for most) beauty shop I did on my return from Devon last week. However, I just had to shove this one to the top of the waiting list because this little gem cost me *drumroll* £1.00! Yes, one measly pound that even I can afford when...
