Wedding Guest Details.


We are approaching wedding season, and I have to say they are probably one of my favourite occasions to get ready for. I have one coming up this weekend and I thought I'd breakdown a few of the things I'm going to be wearing, and slapping on my face, to serve as some inspiration to you all.

This beautiful Kate Spade bag is a new addition to my wardrobe and one I purchased after realising I don't actually own a black evening bag...so I kind of needed it right...For me, it's the perfect size to fit in all my essentials and it looks super classy and will go with everything. I love that it has a leather strap which is really comfortable to wear, and the chain detailing is a lovely touch. Inside, it's filled with very cute polka dot lining and has one main compartment along with a little pocket, perfect for you phone, cash or whatever really. I can see myself getting so much use out of this and of course I'll have it linked below for you guys.

Moving on to a few beauty bits now, and I love pretty, glowing makeup for an occasion like this, and to start that off I'm going to be slapping on my Dior Glow Maximising Primer. I love this stuff for when I'm going out and want my makeup to look flawless as it adds such a nice glow to the skin without being shimmery. Depending on the finish of my foundation I'll either apply it before my foundation, or mix it in, and both work a treat. I also love to go with a slightly shimmery blush to help my cheekbones stand out. I'm loving the Laura Mercier Lush Nectarine blush, which is a gorgeous coral pink shade with gold shimmer running throughout. If you're looking for a new blush to see you through the spring and summer definitely check this one out, it looks fab with a tan! For eye's the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in Amber Haze was my first choice. This is a gorgeous taupe brown which compliments green, brown and hazel eyes beautifully. They blend like a dream and stay on all day which is what I love about them. I'm also going to add some lashes to the look. I was pretty scared of false eyelashes, and I have to admit I've never actually used or applied them before, so wish me luck. Lately, so many eyelashes on the market actually look natural and easy to apply, so I opted for the Fluer Loves Lashes which are part of her collaboration with Eyelure. They look very fluttery and natural so hopefully they'll go down a treat. On my lips I'll of course be reaching for my Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk, such a classic. This is fab for shaping and defining the lips without going overboard and looking like you've just stepped out of a 90s music video. This shade works really well with a nude lipstick and makes it last for a good portion of the day.

A couple of extra things I thought I share is my nail choice and fragrance. The former is Essie's Cocktails and Coconuts, my favourite nude shade ever. I was going to opt for a pink, but my dress is red so I thought nude would be better. I think lighter pastel shades are also lovely for occasions as they aren't too in your face but make you nails looks beautiful and well groomed. For my scent I think I'll be dispensing some of the Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt into my travalo. This is gorgeous woody scent which I would recommend everyone trying at least once, I haven't heard a bad thing about it, it really is a stunning scent.
