Weddings are notoriously expensive so I am always searching for ways to keep costs down for ours. As we have a long engagement (we don’t get married until September 2017), we had to send Save the Dates to keep people in the loop yet both wanted to keep it cheap so that we could save our money for the proper full invitations. So it was time to get creative. After looking for examples of country, kraft style rustic save the… View Post

When Benefit bring a boat decked out with pink interiors, cocktails and beauty treatments to the shores of the Thames, it seems silly not to visit. So one muggy London weekday, my friends Rach, Jen and I decided to head to the Good Ship Benefit for cocktails and catch ups. Docked up next to Embankment tube station, Good Ship Benefit has a beauty parlour, an inside restaurant and a deck space which offers unobstructed views across to the London eye…… View Post

The Vintage Wedding Fair pops up all over the UK and hosts a variety of local sellers displaying anything from vintage wedding dresses to props, bands, crockery and more.

I have been wanting to try my hand at calligraphy for… View Post

At the moment, I am really enjoying using the Cocoa Contour palette from Too Faced which comes with two bronzer shades and two lighter, highlighting shades, as well as a little brush (which actually does work quite well). Medium Cocoa is a lighter, greyer-toned bronzer… View Post

There is a corner of London known as Little Venice. Instead of gondolas you will find rows of canal boats and instead of crumbling Venetian buildings you see grand, white London townhouses, terraced mansions and manicured lawns. This tranquil place is not too far from Paddington station but feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of London. So when the hottest-day-of-the-year hit London on Sunday, Marc and I thought it would be the perfect time to grab a Cornetto… View Post
