Wedding talk!

Hey loves! So as some of you may know, my long term boyfriend (seven and a half years to be exact!) proposed to me last year in Paris!! We've been engaged now for almost 7 months so we thought it was about time we actually start to plan it, seeing as we intend on getting married next year (how scary does that sound?!).

Being the typical girl that I am I created a wedding inspiration board on Pinterest about a year before Jack even proposed and since then it has just grown and grown. I want to share with you some of the steps we are taking throughout our wedding planning such as, colour palette's, table centre-pieces, flowers, photo booths - everything and anything (but not the dress!!).

So, first thing's first - inspiration! As I've already mentioned Pinterest has been my main source of inspiration so far as it is just so easy to get carried away with everything and fall in love with other people's magical day! I have put together some of my favourite images so far (non of which are mine, they are all from Pinterest), so that you can get an idea of the theme we are going for. Think vintage, floral and delicate. Enjoy!

Hair Tutorial - Two-Strand Plait

Hey beauts! Today's post is all about this false plait which I recently came across and absolutely love! It's a great hairstyle for when your hair is a few days old but you still don't want to wash it yet and it is so quick and easy to do, perfect for when you're in a hurry!

I was inspired to try it after watching Mimi's YouTube video from Luxy Hair, she calls it the 'Two-Strand Braid' so I'm going with her on this one, otherwise I wouldn't know what on earth to call it (false plait?).

I love the outcome of this hairstyle as it just looks effortless! So if you want to know how to re-create this look then watch my video below, and don't forget to thumbs up and subscribe for a new video every Sunday!

Mild Winter Days

Fur Stole, Cardigan & Skirt: New Look  //  Top: Primark  //  Bag: Charity Shop  //  Shoes: H&M

Hey loves! So I couldn't blog too much into the new year without adding in an 'ootd', could I?! This particular outfit I have been loving recently as the weather is a lot milder than it usually is so days like this (dare I say it!) you don't really need a coat.

I have been loving roll neck tops recently and this one I bought from Primark a few months ago (how amazing is their knitwear this season?!). I think it goes perfectly with this tan suede mini skirt from New Look and I added my long length, light grey cardigan and fur stole for extra warmth. The bag I bought from a charity shop a couple of years ago and every now and then I find the perfect outfit to pair it with as I love the retro feel. These loafers are from H&M and have been my go-to shoe this season (when it's not raining of course!).

Alas, we all know this mild weather won't last long. It's strange to think how much the seasons have changed since I was a kid. Who knows, maybe we'll get snow in June this year? What have you been wearing recently to adjust to the strange weather we're having?
