Weekend Wedding

Hi! Hope you're all doing well. I've been pretty busy lately but the thought of just 2 more weeks in school (well 9 working days now) is keeping me going! I can't wait for a break so that I can finally get the flat sorted and tackle all the jobs I've been meaning to do!
On Saturday we went to a friends wedding in a lovely little village outside of Oswestry. The weather was gorgeous and we had a great time. It got me thinking about how I want my wedding to be and how I need to start saving. How many times have I said that on here since I've gotten engaged?! It will happen though, it has to! I was also pretty pleased that I managed to wear some proper high heels without toppling over. Quite an achievement for me! I loved the dress I chose and I'm a bit sad that I didn't manage to get a picture of myself in it but you can see it here! It wasn't the dress I was going to wear originally but I saw it on sale for 30% off in Dorothy Perkins and I had to have it. I did have to loosen the belt on it later on though thanks to the amazing hog roast and buffet!
Make up wise I stuck to what I know and used my usual Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude foundation along with my Make Up Gallery blusher and Body Shop honey bronzer. For eyes I chose my favourite combo of colours (the taupey shades) from my Make Up Revolution Iconic 2 palette, finished off with my fave Seventeen Doll'd Up mascara. I don't really know why I bother having other shadows when I nearly always just use this one! My lipstick, which I'm not actually wearing in the picture, is from Essence in the shade Natural Beauty.
I straightened my hair but as usual it got pouffy again quickly. I can never get my hair as sleek as they do in the hairdressers! Hopefully when I'm not in work I'll have the time to embrace my natural waves-it'll be much less hassle!

Hope you had a good weekend too :)


  1. Great post! Your makeup looks really good - you have nice cheekbones, to be honest.
    Also the dress is gorgeous! :)

  2. Aw thanks Lauren :) I'm so glad I got the dress in the end-sometimes impulse buying pays off haha
