Our Pre-Wedding Photoshoot


I'm baaaack! I cannot describe how much I've missed this space of mine! As you may (or may not) know, I got married last Sunday and as soon as March hit I had to take a few weeks away from here to deal with all the last minute wedding preparations, moving and decorating our own place, and sorting out anything that had to be done prior to entering married life. It has been a crazy couple of weeks for sure, but also exciting ones! And now, I am so glad I am finally finding the time to sit down and put my thoughts into writing and get back to doing what I love, which is keeping this little corner of the internet updated and full of ideas! I have so much planned for the upcoming weeks and with regards to married life, I cannot wait to share with you guys everything (ok, maybe not everyyyything lol....). I hope you enjoy these marriage related posts and that you come back for more. I will throw in the mix a few fashion posts too because boy, have I missed those!

For now though, given I've been away for a while, I thought I'd start off easy, sharing with you our pre-wedding photoshoot photos. I've shared a couple of them on my Instagram but there are so many more so I'm compiling the best shots in this post! The photographer we hired for our big day kindly offered us a free pre-wedding shoot and of course, being the photo lover that I am I was super excited! I knew it would have been a great opportunity to loosen up in front of the camera, especially for the fiancé who is so camera shy, and to get to know the photographer's work better. Matthew, our photographer, did such a wonderful job with these, imagine what the actual wedding photos will look like! I can't wait to see those and share them here with you. But for now, please enjoy our pre-wedding shoot!

10 Amazing (& Easy!) Pancake Recipes

Good morning beauties! Firstly, apologies for the lack of updates recently. Life has been pretty hectic with wedding planning and all (it's SO near) and needless to say it has left me feeling a little overwhelmed. I miss updating this space of mine more regularly but life happens. I will try to bring new content every once in a while but until the wedding, it probably won't be as regular as before which is ok with me given despite the stress, I am having so much fun with planning our big day and I can't wait to share every detail with you guys! Until then, follow me on Instagram where I post daily so you're in the know of what's happening lately!

Now, onto today's post, I'm recycling a post I wrote two years ago which is still very much relevant today given it's Pancake Day! I bring you the ultimate list of pancake recipes you will need for today. These are bound to be crowd-pleasers, and if you want something healthier, more chocolaty or even savoury pancakes, I've got you covered! Check these out:

S/S 2017 Trends: Ruffles & Fuchsia



Last spring we saw a rise of Ruffles and frills on the catwalk as well as on the high street and I spoke about the trend previously here. This spring it is back and gutsiest than ever which is great news for ruffles lover me. For instance, Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen showcased ruffles in black leather embroidered and printed with Scottish roses, which sound just as stunning as they were. Erdem, Preen, Jacquemus and 3.1 Phillip Lim were also among the number of designers keen on the style, each bringing a different take on it. But one thing they all had in common was that there is something about ruffles that seemed perfectly Victorian. I love the exaggerated leaves in garments, the ruffled high neck, ruffles along the collar bone...which is why when I saw this gorgeous denim shirt with excessive ruffling detailing and this throat-constricting neckline, I knew it had to mine. As soon as I spotted this shirt I knew I was onto something. Not only have I worn this a couple of times already (I only got it last week!) but I strongly believe this will be my go-to shirt in the upcoming sunny season! Let's see how I paired it!

3 Mistakes You Are Probably Making When Applying Mascara


Apart from looking like a mad woman with my eyes (and mouth) wide open when applying it, I am guilty of a few common mistakes we probably all make when it comes to applying the one product we love the most, mascara! You will agree with me that mascara pulls everything together. It can hide dodgy eyeliner (I’m certainly guilty of those), it can make you look more awake, it can give the look a more dramatic finish and we honestly can't get enough of it! With the hundreds of mascaras I've got sitting on my vanity table, I am guilty of making these mistakes with every single one of them. When I recently learned about these mistakes I decided to bring them to the blog and help out a fellow blogger/reader. So here goes, 3 mistakes you are probably making when applying mascara.

How I Keep My Hair Long & Healthy


My hair has to be one of my most complimented features (my skin is a close second and y'all must be blind to be saying it is flawless haha) on Instagram and blog photos. Which is why, I decided to dedicate an entire post to it and in it give a few tips on how I keep it clean, healthy and protected. Back in 2015, I wrote about my favourite haircare products at the time and whilst the principles still stand, I am doing a few things differently and I believe these changes to have made a massive difference. Today I am much more focused on my internal well-being rather than on the products and something I learned recently is that whilst using the wrong products can result in hair damage and loss, the trick to truly healthy hair has more to do with what goes into your body than styling products and hours spent in front of a mirror. Hair loss, dullness, and slow growth often comes from the absence of nutrients in your body or bad habits. After a bit of research on my end, here are some tips I found if you're looking to keep your hair long and healthy like I am.
