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 ...



sixonsunday13A new look this week, I felt the old style of posting SIX ON SUNDAY was getting a bit rambly and long so I’ve combined all the images into a pretty collage (everyone loves a collage don’t they?).
Biffy Clyro – Who’s Got A Match?
This song reminds me of being at uni and dancing around on the indie floor at the club, I don’t feel at home on the indie floor – it’s a bit too judgmental there for me! But I love this song – it has such a good tune, perfect for marching to! Yep, I like to march in clubs – just one of my moves…

Nina Chakrabarti – My Wonderful World of Fashion: A Book for Drawing, Creating and Dreaming
Hello adult colouring book! This book is a dream for those of us that love colouring in, doodling and generally wasting away the hours procrastinating. It’s full of pictures to colour, decorate and fashion designs to finish off. It’s got some classic fashion must-haves in there too, Marc Jacobs mouse shoes for example! I just love spending time colouring in and creating patterns in this book, definitely worth a look if you enjoy such things : )

Rodial Glam Balm Lip - £19
This lip balm is amazing. I had really dry lips/mouth in the week and in particular the skin around my mouth was really sore. I found this in my drawer and whacked a thick layer on before bed and when I woke up the next day the dry skin and redness was gone! It’s quite a thick gel texture it’s not solid, and it has a light rose scent and no colour. It’s also supposed to have plumping and filling properties (does that sound filthy or is it just me?)but I can’t say I noticed this. If you’re feeling flash it’s definitely worth the money, but I’m sure there’s something just as good for cheaper.
Unconditional Offer
On Friday evening I got an email informing me that the status of my application had changed on the GTTR and that I had an offer from Edge Hill! I was so excited to see that it was unconditional but only for the part-time course. Not good, as there is no funding for part-time degrees in the form of Maintenance – you can still get a loan for the tuition fees though. And I have no money at all, so don’t think I’m gonna be able to go this year – unless some kind of miracle happens!
If any of you know of any education type jobs in the Preston area let me know! As if I could get a pretty decent part-time job it might be doable. Argh, the news was so bittersweet, I might have had a little cry.
5| Shop
Beauty Bay (AKA porn for nail polish addicts)
I love visiting Beauty Bay to look at all the nail polishes, there are so many different brands on there (Essie, Nubar, Mavala, Orly…) and I recently discovered the ‘manicure of the week’ page, I was swooning over all the different designs and colour combinations for quite some time last night – if you’re in need of some nail polish inspiration go and check it out!
A Slice of My Life by Leanne
Leanne’s blog is one of my most favourite blog’s to catch up on at the weekend, she posts a lovely mix of things from fashion to food and a look into her wedding prep on the side. For me, her stand out posts are her ‘Week in Photos’ posts on Sunday’s – I religiously read them every single week before I have a bath lol – it always leaves me feeling hungry as she posts about all the yummy food she’s made (or ordered – the Dominos pics make me so jealous!). Leanne is also active on twitter and is always willing to have a chat with you if you tweet her!
Hope you like the new look to these posts, let me know if you think anything needs to change. Also, do you like my new blog design? I spent the whole of yesterday giving the blog a bit more of a summery outfit.
