Wedding Wednesday: The Engagement Party

Engagement Tea Party – Saturday 19th September 2015 Last Saturday we held our engagement party at our house, we spent the day with around ...








Pantera – Walk

To be honest, I’m not expecting many of you to like this song (Although I do like surprises!) I picked it because it reminds me of going out and dancing like an idiot. It takes a certain level of drunkenness to be brave enough to foxtrot to Pantera or chicken dance to Metallica, a level of drunkenness that allows one to ignore the stares from the ‘metal heads’ and to give anyone that gets in your way an elbow to the back. That level of drunkenness can only be achieved when you have your best friend, a litre of vodka flowing through your veins and about 10 shots of Sambuca. This song is one of the best. Give it a listen, you might be surprised.

Similar to last week, I haven’t really been watching much TV again. I’ve actually spent most of this week watching Romeo + Juliet (The Baz Luhrmann one), think I watched it almost every day! That film has an amazing soundtrack! So I will share with you one of my all time favourite TV shows, Peep Show. I could seriously watch Peep Show all day long, sometimes I do, and I know nearly all of the words. In my opinion the first 4 seasons are the best, I love first 2 in particular. Me and my best friend like to pick characters in TV shows and become them (yep, we’re weird) in Peep Show I am Mark because he’s more serious lol. Although I relate to Jeremy too, I think that’s what’s amazing about the TV show – everyone can relate to it. I love the internal monologues too, such a good concept and so funny. I also love the theme tune.

Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette

Make-up item of the week is my Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette, I bought this from BuyaPowa a few weeks ago and I’ve been loving it ever since (Although I did have to re-press one of the shadows as it was broken on arrival!). I like that there is a mix of neutrals and brights, shimmer and matte shades. I use this nearly every day for creating a day time look for work. My favourite shadows are: Flow, Deep End, Deeper and M.I.A.



Wired Jewellery

My shop of the week this week is Wired Jewellery, I’ve been aware of the brand since I met the lovely owner, Faye, at a blogger meet up in November. The brand has grown so much since then and I’m sure some of you will have already checked out the amazing jewellery that Faye hand makes. There are a variety of different collections in the shop, my favourites being the chalkboard and gemstones. My favourite product by Wired Jewellery has to be the above-knuckle rings – these are becoming really popular now and Faye’s shop is the only place that I’ve found a wide variety of them. I have this one and really, really want the little peace sign one too! Everything is priced really reasonably too and the packaging is lovely!

This week I was lucky enough to be invited to go to a blogger’s event at the Windle & Moodie salon in Covent Garden, it was swish! The event was in aid of a new hairstyle that the salon have developed for Spring/Summer – The Lazy Blow Dry. More to come on that next week, but let’s just say that I was too cack-handed to get the hang of it in the salon and the stylist, Jake?, was very patient with me and ended up doing my hair for me in the end! Hopefully I’ll be more successful in my bedroom!

I had an amazing time at the event and met some lovely bloggers (Maria, Becca and Fritha) while I was there, thanks Modus!

Blog of the week goes to Mabel Time which is a blog written by Mabel, the palest girl in Florida, and is one that I thoroughly enjoy. Mabel has got great vintage style and every single blog post that she writes leaves me yearning for a bit of that retro 50s style, she is also hilarious and makes me giggle frequently. Also let’s not forget to mention that she’s bloody beautiful too, I don’t think that there is anything that she can’t do! Mabel posts mostly about fashion but sometimes about hair and beauty too, each post also contains life updates and sometimes a peek at her cats too!

My favourite post is this one which features her sunglasses collection, I am a sunglasses whore so this post was literally like porn to me :)

  1. I like Pantera! And I also always do silly dancing at metal nights, way less dangerous than a moshpit on a drink-coated floor. The Urban Decay palette looks amazing - I love their shadows :) xx

  2. I love Peep Show too :) And lucky you going to a swish event. I want to go to something like that...one day. xx

  3. Amazing post!
    I really like your blog dear, keep going!

  4. Oh Amy Amy Amy I fucking love that song, also Halo - soil. They remind me of going out in blackpool when i was 17/18, they remind me of pulling older men with tattoos and piercings and they remind me of drinking fosters and snakebite <3 xx

  5. I love when you do these posts. My favorite part is the wonderful blogs it introduces me to.

  6. Nothing beats a bit of metal!
