My Week In Pictures

Darn the wedding season! I've done nothing but work work work! I feel so bad neglecting this blog :( But I do make sure to take as many photos as I can during the week so I can upload a week in pictures (as the title says). What do you guys think? :) Also! What would you ladies like to see more posts about on this blog??

Wedding Cakes!

As you all know I am getting married, I just met with the baker and she is awesome!! Her cakes are unbelievably delicious! You can find her website here.

She asked me what kind of cakes I wanted and I wanted a textured sort of cake, with soft pink and cream flowers (not too many!! I am not a flowery kind of girl hahah), so these are the cakes I showed her! But then, she showed me this awesome hundreds and thousands cake!! Omg it's amazing!!


Can't wait for to see my actual cake!!!

Sneak Peek: Smokey Cat Eyes

I was playing around with makeup and viola! Definitely could've worked on it a little bit more! Wedding season has been crazy busy for me as well, at least 2 weddings per day on the weekend! It's good but definitely very tiring, good thing I love my job!

FOTN: 1 Eyeshadow

This shows that you don't need a million eyeshadows to have an awesome makeup look! I was in such a rush tonight that I actually only used 1 eyeshadow!

Hayfever Go Away!!!

If any of you suffer with hayfever then you know how annoying it is to deal with for 3 months out of the year! I've tried EVERYTHING under the sun and nothing seems to work!

My eyes itch!!! Oh my gosh!! Which means... My eyes are swollen :( Dear Lord, I look like I've been punched!

Materials

Must be in the genes (my dad worked in textiles all my life), because I adore looking at pretty materials and can spend hours just perusing through.

FOTD: Smokey Eyes With Colour, Courtesy of Lisa Eldridge

As you all know, I am OBSESSED with Lisa Eldridge! I think she is amazingly talented and one of the few REAL Make up Artists on YouTube. Her videos are always innovative, informative and I can always rely on them to inspire me when or if I have a lull with make up. 

About a week ago, she posted up a smokey eye look with colour that I fell in love with, so I decided to recreate it. It's not EXACTLY the same, but a LOT of the steps are from the video, which can be found here
