Getting my fine hair to look shiny and healthy is always a real struggle. Years of bleaching and straightening, (especially during my teeange years where I had never heard of such a thing as a heat protection spray), left it super dry, frizzy, knotty and just plain dull. Restoring general health back to my hair has definitely helped in the shine stakes, thanks to a combination of using heat protecting creams (my favourite is the Kerastase Ciment Thermique), strengthening shampoos and… View Post

Shoreditch House oozes cool (I know, what was I doing there right?). It is a members-only hotel complete with bars, restaurants, nail parlour and the most exciting thing of all – a rooftop pool.

The pretty island is not far from Essex but can only be driven to when the tide is out for a few hours each day. Dubbed ‘the English Hamptons’, it holds an assortment of upscale holiday rentals overlooking the water which can be rented out for events,… View Post

Tea Dress – River Island Bag – Joy Sunglasses – Topshop Boots – New Look (old) Last weekend Marc and I took our parents to see our wedding venue as September is fast approaching (eek!) and we wanted them to get to know the venue and feel part of the planning, especially as they have both helped us so much throughout the process. It turned out to be a beautifully sunny day (fingers crossed that the sun can keep his… View Post
