Gifts For The Unsung Heroes | Bridesmaids

When you ask a member of your family or a friend to be a bridesmaid, it's one of the most endearing, privileged things that they'll cherish forever. But as hard as it is to choose one, imagine how it is to be one. It isn't always an easy task to be the bridesmaid itself. What with common tasks like arranging a hen and being there for you in your time of need - not to mention what goes on during the day itself, it's worth giving them a little something to say thank you.

How To Create A Wedding Makeup Look In 10 Minutes

& Why I’m Considering Neutral Colours Having been engaged for almost a year and a half, I’ve thought about every aspect of a wedding. From large to small, lively to quiet, even debating whether or not to go abroad or stay home. It’s tricky. Whilst there is a venue that we’ve fallen in love with, the fundamentals are still being decided. The easiest part to plan though is the beauty and the dress. For me,…

Why I’m Still Completely Drooling Over Inbal Dror

& Longing For That Fishtail Since getting engaged, wedding ideas have me deliberating and losing sleep over the most ridiculous things. I’ve no idea if this is normal so soon into an engagement? Or whether I’m already turning into the dreaded ‘Bridezilla’. When the millionth person asks Daniel or I ‘when’s the big day?’, we run through a list in our heads; are we doing it home or away, big or small, sunny or indoors. All before remembering to…

Luxury Wedding Skin Preparation

Didn’t you know I’m getting married? I’ve been engaged for a year now and still no date, sorry. Therefore I wanted to revisit some serious skin talk. You all know I can speak about skin and science until I’m blue in the face (excuse the pun). However with wedding skin, I have to take it up a notch. It can be said that it is really rather tricky knowing where to start. Until Omorovicza popped up in my life again.…

The Lip Plumping Trend #SITCSpringBTY

It’s no secret in the beauty world that lip liner can only go so far. In my posts, you’ll notice that on nearly every image I’m wearing a liner as well as lipstick. Ultimately it’s to give a more defined shape and plumper effect to my lips. It’s not something I’m necessarily insecure about (don’t you just hate it when people always say that she must be insecure to get work done). I just think…

Choosing A Wedding Fragrance

Over the years I’ve met with so many fragrance clients, chatted to so many representatives in beauty halls and even tried my hand at creating my own personalised scent. I own a shocking (!) amount of fragrance and I’ve no problem choosing my favourite summer scent, a treasured day scent or a go-to evening fragrance. When it comes to wedding fragrance, it’s a bit more serious. At my good friend Nicole’s wedding a few years ago, I still…

One Wedding Guest Way

Whether it’s a homemade vintage type of wedding, a Vegas wedding, a swanky hotel wedding or even a beach wedding, any fashionista will use it as a great excuse to celebrate love and dress accordingly for the occasion. Last year, Daniel and I attended a pretty epic wedding inside the stunning Bath Abbey. It was a magnificent military affair with plenty of swords, uniforms and an abundance of alcohol. The ceremony proceeded a pretty impressive reception at the exquisite…

How To Get A Barely There Wedding Makeup Look

When it comes to weddings, I read everywhere that makeup should be dewy, soft and natural and you should really up the ante on your nudes, (makeup, not the photo messages). I’ve always saw myself on my wedding day with stained red lips, pink blusher and plentiful lashes that are thicker than ever before. Well that was before I saw these beautiful images of barely there makeup. Considering that we may have a wedding abroad…

So What Actually Is A Jewish Wedding?

It’s usually when I’m about three of four minutes into a conversation with someone about my wedding that they’ll realise and say something. ‘Ah! It’s a Jewish wedding! Oh… wait, so what’s the actual difference’? There’s no denying that a stereotypical Jewish wedding is an exciting, large (often 200 guests plus), enjoyable occasion with plenty of emotion and dancing. These days though, no two weddings are the same so it’s actually quite hard to pin point exactly what…

Stationer Of The Moment | Dimitria Jordan

Thud! The latest copy of GQ Style lands on my desk. Argh, it looks amazing! These moments of anticipation, excitement and joy are a regular occurrence in my day job. I utterly love it when a new copy comes my way. Working at Condé Nast means I get that pleasure of pouring over the latest issue of GQ, Vogue, Glamour etc on a monthly basis. Now we all know that familiar, delightful feeling when we get a fresh magazine… that…

Introducing The Wedding Channel

Now when I think of bridal gowns, I’m both super excited (for obvious reasons) and a little bit nervous. Nervous, because since getting engaged, I’ve put on 6lb and cannot for the life of me curb my appetite. I keep wondering when does that phase happen where brides to be are so stressed they don’t eat and lose weight?! Have brides ever walked down the aisle three sizes bigger than when they got engaged? Last week…
