Every little girl dreams of the day she will try on her dress, the one that makes her feel like a real life princess. Of course after discovering the one a bride turns her search to nailing down the perfect dress for those special ladies in her life – her bridesmaids.
Today I was that bride that took a very exciting journey down to White Dresses and Tiaras. From the moment I stepped into the boutique I was greeted with an array of stunning bridal designs adorned with beautiful intricate details and glistening beads that sparkled as the sunlight captured them. We were quickly greeted by the lovely Jodie who immediately offered us refreshments and showed us to our very own private corner where we could enjoy the VIP experience even more.
After receiving mediocre customer service from other bridal shops in the past, it was wonderful to be able to enjoy a bridal experience like no other. Jodie was incredibly helpful and offered both myself and my special ladies a tailor made service that met our every need. No request was too much, White Dresses and Tiaras really do set the perfect tone for pure bridal bliss. From appointment confirmations and reminders to personalised fittings for each one of your special ladies, I can’t recommend White Dresses and Tiaras enough. My only regret is that I didn’t discover this incredible boutique sooner. Moral of the story like all great things, you can’t hurry love.
With Thanks to White Dresses and Tiaras for an unforgettable day.

With UK temperatures soaring to a sizzling 34 Celsius recently, I have been inspired to make a few colourful purchases from Next and Monsoon. This is the first year that I have actually bought something from Monsoon and I just love this gorgeous maxi dress as the eye-catching colours have me feeling all summery.

Did you know I also have a YouTube channel where I like to share my latest fashion and Primark Hauls?
With all of the negativity floating around the blogosphere lately, I thought it would be nice to share some love instead. So, here are my top 5 accounts that I have been inspired by lately.
This beautiful lady has taught me the importance of being open, honest and proud of who you are. Despite her daily struggles with M. E Lauren’s feed is filled with beautiful selfies, delicious Insta-worthy cupcakes and a pinch of reality for good measure.
I absolutely love Hannah’s effortless style and her personality shines throughout her feed. Another blogger keeping it real.
Kindness is free, spread that stuff everywhere!
Pure pastel perfection, beauty, fashion, flowers and Becky’s cute little sausage dog.
Wife and mum of two Joanna proves that style really does come with age. Her love for all things fashion related clearly play a huge part in her feed, where she mixes high-end pieces with high street brands such as Primark.
Fashion, fabulous flatlays, beauty and lots of dreamy pics. Tiffany’s feed has that girl next door vibe going on.
Have Courage and be kind.
What are your favourite Instagram accounts to follow? I hope this post has helped you to discover a few more inspirational ladies and that you all have a wonderful weekend. If you are new to blogging then please do not give up your dream of pursuing it! The majority of us blogging folk are incredibly supportive and the great thing about blogging, is that there is room for us all.
When the film Confessions of a Shopaholic was released in 2009 little did I know that I too would become obsessed with shopping. Luckily, my addiction to buying nice things hasn’t resulted in any severe consequences like many young women. However with our wedding fast approaching the reality has begun to set in.
So I thought I would set myself a challenge for the next 30 days to help me curb my impulse spending habits and hopefully encourage me to save! I will be keeping a diary from the 1st June which I am considering sharing with you, if you are interested.
- I will limit myself to one treat per month😩
- I will budget for events such as Birthday’s🎉
- I will switch to pack lunches oppose to daily meal deals from ‘Boots’ or Subway 🥗🌯sandwiches.
- I will stop ordering Papa John pizzas 🍕
- I will avoid the high street on my lunch break – This is a tough one as I work in retail.🛍
- I will create new looks with my current wardrobe.💃
- I will sell items if I wish to make a purchase👀
- No Bridal or Fashion Magazines👰💍
- I will put £10 in our Honeymoon Fund at least once a month.😊
- I will put a portion of my wages into my savings💰
- Continue to pay off credit card on time.💳
- I will ask myself do I really need it or can it wait?😂
- I will pay for things with cash and avoid using my card for contactless payments🙊
Some other useful tips from my lovely Twitter followers include:
- Meal prep your lunches at the weekend (or when you are free) instead of buying lunches when you’re at work everyday @RetroSnowflake🍱
- Write down everything that you spend from day-to-day for a week – when you look back you’ll be able to see areas where you can cut down @pollymaisie 😵
Are you a shopaholic or a savvy saver? Do you have any tips I could try?
I absolutely love reading these posts, so I thought I would share with you a few of my favourite fashion and beauty purchases from May.
First up is this stunning floral wrap dress from Primark for £13 which caught my eye because of its gorgeous ruffles and Latin inspired style. Initially I was going to wear this to the Maison de Choup launch but decided to opt for jeans and a top combo due to the poor weather that was forecast for my journey up to London. However, I will definitely be wearing this in Mallorca later this year with a pair of black strappy heels.
Life is too short to wear boring clothes.
Next up is a few impulse beauty purchases. After being pampered by the lovely ladies at my local Benefit Brow Bar and Urban Decay prior to my trip up to London. I decided to invest in the following products.
Urban Decay Total Pervision duo set £22
Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray £23.50
Benefit Gimme Brow £20
The great thing is I was also given a free makeover by Urban Decay after purchasing two products, this was particularly enjoyable as I was able to attend the MDC launch looking lovely and glam thanks to the lovely Louise.
Last but not least is this stunning tribal inspired print bikini from Accessorize. I really love bright colours and the pink tassels add just the right amount of sass to complete my beach look. I will be pairing this with a big floppy straw hat and a cheeky pina colada.
These are just a small selection of my latest favourites. If you would like to see another post like this then please do leave a comment. I hope you are all having a lovely relaxing Bank Holiday.
