We want this look!

Posted on January 30th, 2012

GIRL CRUSH!!! We love this look on Jessica Chastain. It’s such a beautiful classic look & makes us want to run straight out to boots to buy the redest hair dye we can find! She rocks red like Jon bonjovi rocks music! It works in every way & the side parting and roller curls give a feminine  and relaxed feel to her look! Red lips and red hair? Always a winner & we want it!!

Screen Actors Guild 2012 Best Dressed

Posted on January 30th, 2012

We absolutely LOVED Lea Michele’s outfit at the Screen actors guild awards this weekend! We’ll let the image do the talking but this classic Grecian style dress is stunning! Ok so she has a figure to die for and we want her personal trainer!!!

Personally I love chocolate too much but can dream about walking the red carpet in such a beautiful outfit.

As for her make-up she teamed her look with a fresh and natural make-up style. Going for a peach/pink lipstick to create warm tones in her face. Sultry browns on her eyes and distinguished brows. All with the aim of looking naturally beautiful by simply emphasising her pretty features.

At bumblebee bridal this is something we love! Very bridal!


Whose Wedding is it Anyway?

Posted on June 11th, 2011

One thing that took me by surprise with our up-coming nuptials is how many people have an opinion on YOUR special day. From how your day should go to who should be invited. My Fiancé pointed out that people wouldn’t care if it was a party for a Birthday. Which in fact it is for us – My fiancé turns 30 on our wedding day.

If this were simply a party for his 30th no one would tell us which suppliers we have to use, venues, the best photographers, colours to have. “You must have a fruit cake it’s tradition.” “We have to have those family friends along because we were invited to their childs birthday party 15 years ago.”

The worst culprits & the source of much amusement by far for us, are Nan’s. I love Nan’s for their no-nonsense approach to life. That ‘I don’t care what people think’ attitude, it makes them cool. But it certainly can be a bug to bear when their old fashioned ways start working their way into your wedding day!

In truth we’ve not let it worry us, we’ve decided to go with the flow deciding that the small things don’t matter. We’re doing it our way, it’s our day & having an extra person here or there & extra cakes that Nan Doris wants to cook for us is all part of the day!

I write this because I recently read the most open hearted letter on where a bride (now married) pours her heart out about all the things she wished she said & wished she did for her wedding day! Instead she ended up not having her day because parents, in laws, husbands etc all had their way & she stayed quiet. She sounded so upset about it. She literally lived all the nightmares that people worry about happening! I just hope she can move on from it & be happy in her marriage!

Really i think it’s important to be true to yourself on your wedding day. Our aim is to have as much fun as possible & drink & dance until our feet hurt. Ultimately everything will work out on the day & the things you worry about now will not matter on the day!
