Date Night OOTD

My favorite night of the week has to be date night. A chance to just hang out with S, away from the chores of the house, just me and him. Date night currently consists of wedding planning and guest list debates, which is my current topic of choice of course! To see my wedding planning posts click here.

 And of course, date night is an excuse to get dressed up!

London's Southbank Festival of Love runs from Saturday 6th June - 31st August 2015, located on the Sunny Southbank in London. The festival of love is a celebration of all things summer, and certainly a celebration not to be missed.

I'm writing this sat on a train racing through the dark and miserable evening towards home to visit my parents. It's so sad that the last weeks of summer are upon us. Days of blue skies and afternoons in the park are numbered, but I intend to enjoy them all. Last weekend, we picked up our sunnies and headed to Southbank to enjoy the Festival of Love.

7 things not to do now you're engaged

Being engaged has to be one of the most exciting time of my life. The romance, the excitement, the planning and celebrations, there's just so much going on! Previously, I shared 7 things to do after you get engaged, but I thought it may be useful to share somethings I've learnt along the way too; 7 things not to do now you're engaged!

How I do quiet time

Quiet time is a very personal thing. Not everyone does their time with the Lord the same, but in the wake of my recent post, Faith and Blogging, I'm trying to be more open and transparent about my faith. 

Now my quiet times are nowhere near as frequent as I would like, and not always particularly productive.  I could easily sit here and write about an idilic quiet time, and how I wish you to view my faith life. However, that would be lying. And in an effort to be completely open, this is my honest routine and thoughts on quiet times. 

Coffee Date ootd

I love lazy summer days filled with pretty hair and coffee dates. Today I caught up with an old friend, and it was so great to catch up over my favourite caffeinated beverage. The sun is refusing to break through the clouds, the the temperatures are still warm enough to wear light layers and channel your casual summer vibes. 

7 things to do after you get engaged

That day has finally come. The fire works have flown, the one knees' been got down on, and there's a ring on your left hand. You're engaged! If you follow my blog, or any of my social media, it will have not have escaped you that I had also recently got engaged! I'd love to extend a huge congratulations to you, if you are in the same boat as me!

Getting engaged has to be one of the most exciting moments of my life, and I imagine it's the same for most people. However, with all the excitement comes the realisation of 'oh my, I have to plan a wedding now' and '...what do we do now?' is often asked.

Never fear, I've put together my top seven things now you are engaged!

Inika - Light reflect Highlighting Cream

Inika - Light reflect Highlighting Cream

Inika has to be one of my all time favourite brands, I fell in love with their Mineral Foundation about a year ago, and I've not used anything since! Read about it here!  I'd had my eye on the Light Reflect Highlighting cream for a while, but with all the other highlighters I own, I couldn't justify it. Good girl. 

 To my delight whilst repurchasing my beloved foundation, I was offered a sampled of the Inika - Light Reflect highlighting cream.
