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 ...




This song is in 'Miss Potter', one of my all-time favourite films. Every time I watch the film I get this song stuck in my head, it's just so pretty and twinkly and hearing Ewan McGregor singing it in the film was perfection.

I went to Stratford-upon-Avon on Tuesday night to see Twelfth Night - my most favourite Shakespeare play. I've seen Twelfth Night countless times but this was definitely my favourite, the mood of it was perfect - funny but also a little bit dark. My favourite character, Feste, was played brilliantly and I loved his wardrobe - brilliant colour combinations! Malvolio was also played brilliantly and I think that although the audience enjoyed picking fun at him they also felt that he was treated unfairly in the end. I liked that this production wasn't too heavily focused on music - I saw the play a couple of years ago and it was basically just a play about music - obviously music is a key theme (the food of love...) but I like to think about the other themes too!

Product | 4head
The children have already made me ill at school, we're only a month in! I've had really bad headaches all week and I slept for about15 hours on Thursday night! 4head has been a little miracle product for me, it's one of those temple balms that you just rub across your forehead when you get a headache. It's really cooling and a bit tingly but it really does make your headache go away quite quickly. I will always have a little tube of this in my bag now.

Event | Gracie's 1st Birthday (3rd October)
How has it been a whole year since Gracie was born! It only feels like last week that I was asking for the afternoon off because she had been born and I wanted to see her. It's been a whirlwind of a year, she has been a constant source of happiness for me though - just seeing her little face always cheers me up (even if her little face is now accompanied with bites and pinches!). She's such a clever little bee too, she was walking at 8 months and she's had teeth since 6 months, she's learning more and more words now too - still trying to get her to say 'Amy' though! She loves music and all things musical, she dances on demand too - always a useful skill! I love Gracie so, so much! Happy 1st Birthday beauts x

Cocktail Cosmetics has had a makeover! It looks so much classier nowadays and the website is a lot easier to navigate. If you're not familiar with the site it's a cosmetics website that stocks products that are quite difficult to get hold of in the UK, I first found it when trying to find a UK stockist of Sigma brushes. There are loads of different brands on there, and keep you're eye out for their sales as I've grabbed many a bargain before!

Blog or Youtube | Sun Beams Jess
I've been watching Jessie's videos for a few years now and I really enjoy them, she has such amazing style and I love the way that she does her make-up too. She posts a range of different videos, from hauls to lookbooks, and I use her smokey eye tutorial all the time too.She makes videos much more often nowadays which pleases me, I always watch her videos first when they pop up in my subscription box - even if I'm not particularly interested in the subject!

  1. Know how you feel about school-related illnesses, I have never been so constantly vaguely ill as when I started working in a school!
    I have never seen twelfth night, must have been good to go to Stratford upon Avon to see it. The Globe is a cracking place to Shakespeare it up, have you been?
    I enjoy these posts of yours, I always discover something new. xxx

    1. It's terrible isn't it!? This is my 3rd year working in a school and they still manage to infect me!

      Twelfth Night is amazing! If you get the chance you should definitely see it! And Stratford is lovely, the theatre had been refurbished since I last went too, they've made it like a Shakespearean theatre now but modern at the same time! I've never been to The Globe but it's on my wishlist - I always miss out on the cheap tickets!

      And thank you, I love doing them! xx

  2. I love this idea of a post, so cute :)
