The Runaway Bride

The last couple of months, have definitely been packed full of weddings of all shapes and sizes. Last weekend Scott and I attended a wedding at The Rutland Arms in the beautiful town of Bakewell.

The weather was fantastic and Scott kindly offered to drive, although the long drive to Bakewell in a convertible is rather tricky when it come to keeping your hair under control ..... that's where the head scarf came into play!

Ottilie was a runaway bride............ don't be too shocked, she did not run away at the alter, Peak 107fm hold a competition each year called Runaway Bride, where yes you got it, each bride has to get as far away as possible with around £20.

Ottilie made it all the way to Las Vegas! So it was only right that she has a Vegas themed wedding.

The Rutland Arms put on a fabulous wedding, with Ottilie's mum Marie baking the cake and making the favors. Marie makes the most incredible cakes, her bakewell tart is a thing of great joy! I think she deserves a blog post all to herself.

It was fantastic to spend some time with my mum and sister-in-law Faye, who spend most of their weekends watching my brother racing his F1 Stockcar.

I decided to wear the fuchsia Amanda Wakeley dress, Furla bag and  Steve Madden shoes that I wore to Royal Ascot on Ladies day. I absolutely adore the dress, but the material that it is made from is incredibly easy to pull even when wearing the smoothest accessories. 


MeMeMe cosmetics recently sent me some products so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try them out. MeMeMe products are dermatologically tested and none of the products are tested on animals.

Enchanted Eyes

This product is an eye cream wand, or so they call it! It is duel-ended with two complimenting shades, I prefer eye shadows to eye wands, and personally think that the wand is too thick, although it does glide on effortlessly and I have used it several times.

Eye Inspire Catwalk Quad Collection



eye shadow collection

I love multi tonal baked eyeshadow palettes, and the Catwalk Quad Collection is brilliant! Each palette contains four complimenting shades designed to build and transform looks from day to night. The colour pallet that I was sent was in dark grey and bronze to create the perfect bold smoky eye. The quality of the eyeshadow is great. Even after hours of wear, the eyeshadow did not crease or smudge. I have even used the darker shades wet, as an eyeliner. I really wish I had this product in every colour.

With Love
