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 ...




Song | Showdown – Black Eyed Peas

For some reason I’ve listened to this song on repeat on my iPod all week, weird. I’m not even a big BEP fan but I just really enjoy the start of this song and I’ve grown to love the whole thing with repeated listenings! I hadn’t listened to it for years before now though but my iPhone has now decided that it’s no longer going to play music so I had to dig out my iPod Touch that hasn’t been updated for about 3 years!

TV or Book | Touching the Void – Joe Simpson

To be honest, this isn’t even a favourite of the week – it’s an unfavourite. I’ve been given homework by one of the teachers I support at work and that homework is to read this book, I’m not doing it at home but I did read a couple of chapters whilst at work the other day and it’s so difficult to get into! I’ve seen the film countless times, it’s a GCSE English text so it comes round every year in the lessons, and it’s a fairly interesting story but the book is so monotonous! Have any of you read it?

Product | L’Oreal True Match Foundation

The only foundation that has been a constant in my collection for the past 5 or 6 years is L’Oreal True Match, It’s one of the only drugstore foundations that I’ve found that matches my skin perfectly, I use the shade C1 Rose Ivory. I also like the formula, it’s not too thick but not too sheer either, it offers good coverage and you can build it up without it going cakey too!

Event | #LFW

Yesterday I popped down to London for London Fashion Week, I was invited to a couple of shows on Monday and Tuesday but as I’m at work I can’t go – lame! So I just went along to Somerset House to soak up the atmosphere, it was so warm yesterday – the courtyard was almost unbearable! I loved seeing what everyone was wearing – particularly the make-up! But like the idiot that I am I forgot to take my SD card for my camera so couldn’t snap anyone! I then wandered along to the Handpicked Media suite to see the new UGG Australia collection – it’s amazing! Totally not what you’d expect! I also got a manicure and enjoyed the views of London from the windows, I was going to get a massage too but I had to dash for my train! Handpicked really did spoil us bloggers, thank you!

Shop | Exaltation

I stumbled across this Etsy store a while ago and it’s been hiding in my Bookmarks ever since. I love the simplicity of the bent wire words and shapes, perfect for adding a little something extra to an outfit. I was most intrigued by the Harry Potter related pieces though, I am a Harry Potter geek! I love the thought of having ‘Expecto Patronum’ or ‘Slytherin’ around my neck, proud of my geekery! I’m definitely a Slytherin by the way, that shade of green is perfect. They do lots of other word necklaces too, and some sciencey types too – I don’t know anything about such things but they do look pretty! The items are priced fairly and shipping from the USA is really cheap!

Blog | Arabella

Oh Arabella, how lovely your blog is. If you love fashion and outfits you will love Arabella’s blog, her photography is beautiful and she always puts together the most lovely outfits. Her make-up and hair always looks stunning too, in fact I just love everything about Arabella’s blog. I love to just sit and look through all the images and be inspired, I’ve lost hours flicking through all her posts but I don’t regret that at all.

What have you been loving this week?

  1. I popped along to Somerset House yesterday too! Wanted to just people watch - it's such a good place for that haha!

    I love discovering new blogs - going to start reading Arabella now I think!

  2. I love wire jewellery - and I love Harry Potter, so you may have just given me a good excuse to spend even more money. They're so cute and I have no idea how someone can make something so teeny tiny and perfect! (: xx

  3. I'm definitely going to try out the foundation!

  4. I'm so jealous that you were out & about around LFW!
