Blog Design Update

Hello all,

As you can see my blog design has gone back to real basics.

I am just thinking as to what design direction I want go with my blog at the moment. Therefore I thought I would go back to basics before I decide.

So please ignore how blank it may appear to be and don’t judge me on the look at the moment.

Ps if anyone has any ideas, or knows of any great wordpress themes website – SEND ME THE LINKS!!!

My Fake Future Wedding Ideas

large (4) large (5)

I am going to do the weird girl post of what I wish for my wedding in the future, I am a single girl and of course as a single girl in your mid 20’s you see lots of your friends becoming engaged or in long term relationships and you’re sat there as I am now watching Bridget Jones thinking …….. bugger. I therefore thought I would put together a group of photographs as to what my ideal wedding  would be (in my head!).

The dress: 

As someone who is a size 18 you really do not want a dress to make you look even “bigger” than you do in a daily life, you want to feel beautiful and just desirable, you want to feel special. I have looked at lots of different designs (yes I am that sad!) and I have come up with my top six , I am not going to write about them or tell you as to why I love them – I would just like you to have a look:

The Shoes:

I am if you have not read previous blogs a lover of shoes, I would prefer if we would all walk around bare footed or in socks but then again I wouldn’t want my feet going in any needles or lots of rocks haha. But shoes are essential for the wedding, I have the idea of course from other brides that heels are not a thing to wear, great to look at but that’s about it, you need to dance the night away a lot of time on your heels and if you aren’t drunk there is going to be pain.

The Bridesmaids:

I haven’t thought how many bridesmaids I would have or even would I would chose for that matter – I also know that through my friends most of the time they hate the dress so I would like something that they are comfortable to be in, but in order to work with the theme the bridesmaids would need to carry this colour and this is what I think:

The Groom:

The Groom can do as he wishes, as long as he is smart and he has a tie or a silk tie which is the same colour as the theme of the wedding. There is too much emphasis on it being the brides decision but the groom is there as well, if he is not there there is no wedding.

So here is some pictures of some gorgeous groom suits that I just think oooh hello 😉 :

PS  a man in a suit is just the best look!!

Trinkets and the look:

Each wedding is unique to that couple, so as I do not know who the mystery man is yet and what the similarities we have together – these are all mine mwahaha.

Post Autumn Winter Snuggly Time.

It’s that time of year again, the awkward stage between Autumn and Winter season and what is a girl to do. 

Around this time of year is where all the girlies and of course some lovely boys get out their extra thick woolly jumpers, their gorgeous new coats, hats, scarves and gloves and pre

tend to look so glamorous yet not look cold at the same time. So I thought I would put together some of the essentials which I always have around this time of year, with of course some new additions.

The Essential Winter Jumper & Socks:

Nothing beats the warm feeling of an extra large layer of a thick woolly jumper, the idea in which you can get all comfy in your extra large jumper, all cosy wrapped up watching the cheesiest but best Christmas TV Films. The garish the better, it’s your comfort dressing, it’s what you’re seeing and if anyone else disagrees with you then make them buy one and see then what they say. Make sure its fluffy, big, mahoosive lets say, wide, stretchy and of course thick. Decoration wise, if you want to go all cheesy with the massive rudolph nose sticking out or  the abstract theme everything is good and the more personalisation the better!

Please please please if you are going to have a great winter purchase, buy some amazing thick socks. You know those thick fleecy socks in which you feel like you’re constantly walking around in a huge blanket with that extra comfort. Again the garish the better, but if you can stick with the winter theme it’s best.

The Warm Hot Chocolate:

What would you do in Winter without the amazing taste of hot chocolate and of course any other drink (preferably tea!), of course you can have them in any other season but in the Winter time its just the best! If they ask you for extra marshmallows say yes, if they ask you for extra whipped cream say yes and of course anything else, but the best suggestion if they ever say “Would you like a bit of Baileys” always say yes – let the magic happen! 

My favourite hot chocolate of past years is Costa Coffee’s black-forest gateau, the idea of cherry hot chocolate is just a dream and it is always amazing first thing in the morning before work as you’re walking there and dreading every step or as a treat afterwards. As well please make sure that you always have the biggest cup going and of course never ever waste any.

Cosy Decorations and Warm Scented Candles:

All throughout the year I have these two in my bedroom and areas around the house, they not only give the room some much needed decoration but also the feeling of personality and cosiness which is definitely needed this time of year. Of course you can go all out and really decorate (but that’s for another post), the decorations I have in mind are little fairy lights, the ones that light up certain areas of the room. These can be hung over your bed, around your favourite photos or for those romantic moments.

Christmas candles or any type of candle being it is just a wonderful feeling, the warmth of the flame and the scent of the candle depending on the mood adds such an essence to any room. As the evenings are drawing in, it adds that little extra sparkle to any room (especially when the power goes off !!) Please as always make sure that you are aware of the flames, you do not want a fire filled room.

The Make Up & Nails:

I love changing my make up throughout the seasons and one of my favourites is of course the winter season. I do not often like the colour red as I find it quite tacky but deep red in the winter is just delicious (especially in lipstick – I am loving Kate Moss – Matte Red – 107 Finish). The darker the look I believe is more luxurious and rich looking, again it makes you look all cosy of course but there is a fine line between the colour and the “Goth” look (unless you do like the look then go for it!)
The nails I go for darker colours or more neutral colours, as in my mind the bright colours is for the summer and spring time. So everything is darker to go along with the sky.
