The First Dance

So the time may have come to choose the song for the "First Dance". Just the thought of this could send any calm Bride or Groom into a panic. Maybe your feeling nervous of having to show off your dance moves in front of all your family and friends. Your other half might have two left feet, just like my Husband (ssssh do not tell him I said that). Then again the groom might have the moves of John Travolta and the hips of Patrick Swayze or the Bride could be just as "Flawless" as Beyonce.

For some couples choosing their song  can be so simple. It could be"that song" the one that was playing when they first meet or their first date song. Choosing the song also depends on the personality of the couple. Are you serious,hopeless romantics, fun,adventurous,playful or flirty The type of music you are both interested in also impacts on the song choice. Who knew it was all so complicated PHEW.....

The first meet just like in Romeo and  Juliet

I do not know about you but my fantasy dance would definitely have to be "Time Of Our Lives" it's just the dream. "Nobody puts baby in the corner"

Our first dance was "At Last" by Etta James. Beyonce also does a beautiful version of this. When I heard her sing it,I was like "that's the one" and luckily for me my Husband loved it too. I have two favorite parts to a wedding the brides entrance and the first dance both make me cry. I think they are the two most magical moments.

Would you think about getting dance lessons? To make your first dance extra special or have your bridal party join in and make it a big performance. I think it is more of an American thing to do the second, not sure if it is a big over here.

I have picked a selection of songs, each with a link.They go from the sweet,simple and romantic to ones with attitude, movement and fun.

Hoping these might give you a helping hand in making the decision. I am a big Beyonce fan,so naturally I have a added some of her songs to the list.

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 …

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.

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.
