Wedding Day Make Up & Perfume Choices

wedding-day-make-up-.jpg

It’s funny – for all the planning in the world, on my actual wedding day I wasn’t half as anal about my make up I thought I would be.   Don’t get me wrong – I packed things I knew I liked to use, and didn’t overwhelm myself with tons of choices so that I could be quite focused on the morning.  To be honest when the time came, I just wanted to get going […]

I got married! A few wedding photos

A few weeks ago I made an honest man of Mr C after 7 and a half years together.  We had originally decided to get married last December and toyed around with different dates. We always knew we’d get married one day, but with so many things going on it’s always a challenge to coordinate everything.  Once we started the process of planning though, we somehow managed to organise the whole wedding in around 12 […]

Wedding Countdown: What Beauty Routine do you have pre-wedding?

Cat-Clock.jpg

It’s not long now until my wedding day and I’ve suddenly realised that I have been spending all my time organising others and of course formalising arrangements and haven’t really thought about myself (I am picking up my adjusted wedding dress TWO days before the day so it better fit!).   Then I suddenly realised; I am a beauty blogger! How could I have neglected all things beauty pre-wedding!? Read some websites and wedding magazines […]

Announcements, life, weddings and cats…

Dear Readers… This week I am moving house! To say it has been a stressful time is an understatement – work (real day job!) has been busy, I have been very tired, I’ve had 8 weeks to plan a wedding, and we only confirmed our new pad TWO days before we had to leave our current place! However, it wasn’t our fault, with a lot of let downs and screw ups, all I can say […]

Bridal Make Up Trial No. 2 at Illamasqua

Illamasqua…for BRIDAL!? I know.  This was the wildcard make over because let’s face it, Illamasqua is not the brand that pops to mind when you think of your glowing fresh faced bride with barely there make up (mind you – super natural isn’t for me!).  Speaking to a lot of MUAs who do bridal, they seem to always get that classic line from brides, “I want the groom to be able to recognise me”. I […]

Engagement & Bridal Make Up Trial No. 1 at MAC Make Up

Cat-gets-engaged.jpg

*Shuffles in..* Well….um…how do I say this….I’m coming over all shy… I’m engaged! To Mr C that is. I know you’re thinking, I thought you were already married.  Well we aren’t, but that’s what being with someone for years and years does to you – you are practically, nearly, almost married, but in the words of Brandy, almost doesn’t count! Here is a reenactment of the actual events: This actually happened quite a few weeks […]

20 Things I learned from William and Kate: The Movie

William-and-kate-.jpg

I, for one, am really looking forward to the Royal Wedding – after all, it’s not going to happen very often in my lifetime and I can’t wait to see what The Queen will be wearing (I love the Queen). In the UK, you can’t get away from Royal Wedding stuff, it is there every 5 seconds on TV, in the papers, on the net, on the radio etc. etc. Anyway, yesterday, whilst I was […]
