I walked away with some exquisite goodies, including the latest Blogoshere Magazine, which is such a fantastic read. I particularly loved the article by Lauren from Little Lauren’s Blog sharing her top tips on photography and blog props on a budget. The goodie bag also contained tea bags from The London Tea Company. You know as Northerner, I love a good brew, so was really excited to try these. They come in such cute little packaging, a bit like Teapigs, in a muslin pyramid bag. Just add hot water and brew for 3 minutes and bobs your uncle, a lovely smooth and balanced breakfast tea.
I have followed Fleur De Force for years and I love her You Tube channels and blog. I loved the Glam Guide (I did a little review here) so I was so excited when she announced she was writing another book. Fleur is such a relatable person, who with her effortless glamour, you can’t help but want to follow her advice.
I love the blurb ‘Luxe living is all about bevoming your best self – the one you’ve always wanted to be – and making it look totally effortless’. That is, I think what many of us aspire to be. I certainly am one of those people. However, I am very disorganised and often chaotic in my approach, so this to me is a bible of how to, with a little be of extra effort, get those first class results.
As with the Glam Guide, I love the way the book is set out into chapters containing bite size step-by-step tips, interspersed with colourful pictures, as well as photographs of Fleur wearing her own clothes and makeup which added a nice personal touch.
As with the Glam Guide, I really hoped for a section of being more organised. The book does however have a section on de-cluttering, which I found really helpful as we are going to be moving house shortly and it is always good to have a clear out ready for a fresh start.
Hello everyone. I hope you are doing well? On Thurday I attended the Thiry Plus Blogger Awards 2016 at the gorgeous boutique-style Charlotte Street Hotel. Hosted by the lovely Hayley Carr and Rebecca Viner.
I got this amazingly cute little dress from Asos, painted my nails with Lottie London Blogger Babe (very apt!), donned my falsies (these were from Primark and didn’t let me down!), put on my heels and headed for Tottenham Court Road tube station.
The event was topped of by the Body Shop goodie bag. The Body Shop is 40 this year, so very apt to join with 30 Plus Bloggers. I have fond school memories of the Strawberry Lip Balm kept safely in my blazer pocket. That maybe where my beauty obsession began!
A lovely lady who properly stands out though is Ree from Lovethirty.co.uk. We had so much fun attempting a joint goodie bag, lift selfie 🙂
I can’t wait to join in with the rest of the fun!
So, as you may know I am getting married next year – Yeah! I am way beyond excited, but I am probably one of the most disorganised, laid back (ok, so maybe a bit lazy!), kind of people you could ever meet. Yes, my job requires me to be super organised, with just the odd (lots) of winging to get everything done, but my personal life it is just, well…
My lovely fiancé on the other hand is super, super organised! He’s so far organised everything to do with the wedding (I must at this point say a huge thank you to him for that!), I have never had so many formal emails with kisses on before!
Everyone comments what a super organised couple we are and instantly assume then that I must be some sort of bridezilla. It doesn’t take too long though before people realise that I’m actually not and given our recent meeting with the florist, I’m still pretty clueless when it comes to all things wedding.
So what is a groomzilla. I think this pretty much sums it up!
Groomzilla: a super organised groom to be. Beware and never get in his way!
Without him though we wouldn’t be 8 months ahead of the wedding with a: venue, organised, the registrar appointment, theme chosen, cake, photographer, DJ, flowers, design of the wedding invites, ring designs, found my wedding dress/bridesmaids for me, flower girl sorted, hair and make up ideas and reminding me to book a pre-wedding holiday! Although… still to order table decorations and some finishing touches – can I step in?!
Lots of love,
