It's all in the detail

Image from Frogprince 

When I was getting married the detail was really important to me. Our guests or even my Husband for that matter may not have noticed or remembered the little things, but I did. Things like chair covers, chair ribbons, lights,center pieces and church decoration.

While I was out today in the Pavilions Shopping Centre I spotted some lovely pieces in Dunne's that would add something extra to your tables ,Church or ceremony venue.

I am always drawn to lanterns I do not know what it is about them. I even bought two large white ones to for my wedding venue in Roganstown. I had this vision of  placing them on the balcony whicht was attached to the room. The balcony was much bigger then I thought and I ended up keeping them, so now I have them in my house. If you purchase or make your own decorations you can add them to your home or give them to your bridal party/close friends as a little gift after the wedding (that's if some of the guest do not take them them) we all know this happens!!


Lantern in my house I just added lights and candles.

We added tulle and flowers to our chairs in the Church just to give them a lift.

Another DIY idea, add  ribbon to the chair's at your venue.

From my wedding,the back drop, flowers and chair covers are all from Forgprince 

Some more ideas from  Frogprince. I can highly recommend them,they can add a little or alot depending on your budget. I loved the chair covers they supplied. They fit to the chair,unlike the covers that your venue may provide these can tend to get loose.They are definitely worth the extra cost.

Flormar Revolution Lipstick In Burgundy Mission

I was delighted to receive a sample of the Revolution lipstick in burgundy mission, along with the lip liner to match. These were Kindly sent from RDC Communications. Flormar was launched this year in Ireland and it has proven to be a huge success and a popular choice for those who want affordability and quality. 

I tested this lipstick out over Christmas, as I am trying to be more adventurous and try out stronger colours, as I normally tend to stick with nude tones. This lipstick is a rich berry colour with blue undertones, having these undertones makes your teeth appear whiter.  
"Revolution is Flormar premium lipstick containing shea butter, cocoa, olives, a super pigment and easy 8 hr staying power".
Application Tips:
Before application ensure your lips are in good condition especially in this harsh weather. Exfoliate to remove any dry skin and apply vaseline regularly to keep them conditioned. I applied setting powder to my lips before application, this can help prolong …

I have felt so welcomed by the venues that I have visited so far.  Please feel free to share and spread the word if this feature is of interest to any engaged couples you know.

On Thursday 2nd  June I went to visit venue number two, the breathtaking Ardgillan Castle. Located between Balbriggan & Skerries. If you have ever visited here you will understand what I mean. Everytime I go to Ardgillan I literally fall in love with it all over again. Whether I go for coffee in the tea rooms, bring my daughters to the  playground or just walk around the grounds. I adore it and Ardgillan was recently featured on Lovin Dublin as the best park in Dublin to visit, now that's pretty cool.

So onto the beautiful Castle, I met with Ann-Marie and Danielle and we chatted about the venue …

Finally Contouring is getting the push

Anyone else as happy as me to see that contouring is not as popular in the makeup world. I personally could never get used to it. I think it looks amazing in photographers or on a night out when done right. If you prefer a more heavy look. I believe strobing has been around before it was just called highlighting then. So do not be confused!!!

For me I prefer a more natural look when it comes to makeup. The whole idea with strobing is that you can see the skin and it is not heavily covered up. 
I have been using the Mac Strobe Cream for a few months now. You can also strobe with powder.

Mac Soft and Gentle 

What I like about Mac Strobe?

It makes the skin look radiant,fresh and healthy (for tired Mammies like me it's a must) It's easily applied. It's a no fuss product, there is no messing with it. It can be worn alone or added after foundation is applied. With some blush you are good to go.
