I’m back! It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here but with a mixture of wedding planning, getting married, my honeymoon and family matters I had to take some time out. So, with that said, I’m back writing again and want to share with you a trip I went on in the late Summer to Hotel Thérèse in Paris. It was bliss and the perfect getaway for a newly married young woman!
Hotel Thérèse is nestled away in a quiet spot a few streets away from Palais Royal. When I look for somewhere to stay one of the top things I look for is location and Hotel Thérèse delivers exactly that. It’s situated on an incredibly Parisian street surrounded by beautiful French architecture and small patisseries.
I recently headed to Paris for an exciting 48-hour city break. You may remember that I went for a whirlwind day trip last February where Zoe and I shot a lot of content in about nine hours; it was a fantastic day but we definitely came away utterly exhausted. This year was slightly different though because I’d be invited along for a complimentary weekend stay by Hotel Eiffel Blomet. The first few months of this year have been incredibly busy so a weekend away to recharge was just what I needed.
As you lovely lot enjoyed my post from my last trip so much I thought I’d put together part two of my Paris Instagram Guide showing you where I stayed and all the new locations I shot in.
If you’re reading this, it’s highly likely that you use some type of beauty product on a daily basis. Whilst these products promise to smooth wrinkles, highlight your cheekbones or give you fuller lips, have you ever looked at the finer details on the packaging? I’m going to hazard a guess and think that a large proportion of you haven’t or if you have there may be a portion of you that’s not 100% sure about what they all mean. It’s easy to ignore them, they’re usually a teeny tiny cluster of cryptic symbols printed at the back or on the bottom of a product.
It’s becoming more important than ever to know what we’re putting on our skin. Understanding these symbols is critical because no one wants to put something on their face that’s months out of date, right?
This blog post aims to demystify some of the key beauty care symbols that you see on the products in your makeup bag, beauty shelf or on your bedside table; it’s my simple, straight forward guide for what to look out for. Have a read and let me know your thoughts.
After working in the fashion industry for most of my career and having a well-documented shopping habit it’s meant that I’ve picked up some practical styling and shopping tips along the way. So, here is a rundown of my styling do’s and don’t’s…
I’m getting married in less six months – OMG! As I expected there is so much to think about when it comes to the BIG day – the dress, the guest list, the food, the venue to name but a few. For me though, there’s something even bigger that I had mulled over for some time and that is whether or not I should change my surname.
Tradition states that the woman should take the man’s surname (rightly or wrongly), but times are changing. Some of my friends have kept their maiden name and at one wedding I attended a few years ago saw the groom change his name to match his bride. So, you see there’s a lot to think about.
