Wedding: Where to start?

Eeee my first wedding blog post - exciting times. Not sure how this will go so let's just wing it, hope for the best and if all else fails, go back to Pintrest to fall in love with more ideas I'll never use. As you know Nick proposed in Rome back in February but back at home I was definitely in a state of "what do I do now?" and had no clue what I was meant to do first.. After reading and watching blogs and vlogs from Fleur De Force's bridal channel; BrideDeForce, as well as Corrie from Dizzy Brunette, I got an idea of the main things we needed to do before we could even start thinking about planning... Set up Pintrest: I'm OBSESSED! I have pinned so much I have so many ideas that I just won't be able to use all of them. It's brilliant for ideas when you're on a budget and want to make your own items and do a bit of DIY. It's a great place to have all your ideas together - my Maid of Honour has also made a board for my wedding

Summer #FOTD

What I've Been Buying: Make Up Edition

So this month I've managed to do a few extra makeovers so I've had a little extra money to treat myself with.. I kinda went a bit OTT and probably should've put some money into my wedding fund... wooops ;) I thought I'd do a little blog post on what I've been buying lately and my first impressions.  SLEEK FINALLY HIT TELFORD BOOTS! Yes babes! We finally got a Sleek stand at work and I'm SO excited. Sleek isn't really a brand I've thought about and I can't say I've ever been attracted into buying anything but after seeing Twitter go MAD over the Sleek Solstice palette, I thought I'd see what the fuss was about. I brought this and this only and after just the 1 purchase I was a Sleek lover. First impressions of the Solstice palette is that it's just beautiful... packaging and product! After reading a few other Sleek-lover's blog posts, I was pretty desperate to try the cream contour which is meant to be a dupe for the Anastasia BH
