It's all in the detail

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.

Love & Sparkle

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 …

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 …

Think about this, have you ever gone to a wedding and after dinner all you want to do is take off your heels and wear something more comfortable so you can dance the night away or have you only wished that you had of brought the hair clips and hairspray that you left at home...I know I have for sure, so do not let your guests go through these traumas at your wedding. Supply a simple wedding basket for your guests in the toilet, trust me it will be the best extra that you giv…
