My Hen Do

Friday, 2 October 2015

I'm a bit late with this post as not only was my hen do almost a month ago, but I've also already had the wedding and honeymoon! Never mind, better late than never!

My hen do was kept a complete surprise by my sister/bridesmaid/organiser extraordinaire Nik, so all I knew was that I had to arrive in Edinburgh at 9.30am in casual clothes and no makeup, with swimwear and a night outfit in tow.  I found out these clues via the medium of poetry….

Recent Makeup Buys

Wednesday, 30 September 2015
Hello!  First things first….I am a married lady now!  How exciting is that?!  I'm not long back from my honeymoon in Greece (more on that later) and now have almost a week at home before I go back to work/reality.  There will be posts coming soon all about my hen do, wedding and honeymoon - although I'd ideally like to wait until I've got some of the official photographs back before I do a wedding post so that one might be a wee while.  The wedding was even more amazing than I hoped it would be, it's true what they say - it really is the best day of your life!

In the meantime though, I started writing this post several weeks before the wedding as I'd been buying a few new makeup bits to use on the day.  Time kind of ran away from me though in the weeks leading up to the big day as there was soooo many things to organise, so I'm only just getting round to finishing it now.  On the plus side though, I've now had a chance to use all of the products so I can actually give you a review.

Wedding Countdown

Technically 3!

As I write this, there are just 3 weeks left until I get married, so I thought it was about time I gave you an update on what's happening.  I can't quite believe that it's so close, it doesn't feel like that long ago that we got engaged in Copenhagen, but a busy year and a half of planning has passed since then.

If I'm honest, I've really enjoyed the whole wedding planning process. I know people say it's one of the most stressful things you'll do in your life, but I haven't felt like that at all.  Sure, there have been a couple of wobbles - like Blair's trousers being out of stock, or me only realising a week ago that I'd agreed to organise our own dessert table - but they sorted themselves out pretty quickly, so <touch wood> it's been pretty plain sailing.  

With just a couple of weeks to go, all the big stuff is organised so we're onto the little details like finalising the menu, writing our vows, buying clothes for the honeymoon etc.  I feel like my every waking moment is consumed with planning, so come the end of September it will be nice to be able to think about something other than weddings!  As I said though, I have really enjoyed the whole process so I'll probably not know what to do with myself once it's over.  I'll need a new hobby!

I'm not going to go into details on the plans for our big day just yet - but I will fill you in on a couple of things:
