The best day of my life. Full stop.
On the 7th of January, 2017 my husband and I celebrated our wedding in Dunedin, New Zealand. Surrounded by friends, family, wine and food we had the most amazing day of my life.
I always thought SOMETHING would go wrong on my wedding day. It’s not normal to have a perfect day right? You always hear of horror stories about food or guests or the weather. I mean, the weather wasn’t perfect on our wedding day but it didn’t ruin the day in any way. Our wedding was perfect. If I wanted to, I could think of a few minor things that I might have changed but it was still perfect.
Honeymooning in Hawaii!
I guess you’re wondering where on earth I have been. Yes. It’s nearly been a year. Although I’ve kept up with posting on my Instagram and Facebook pages I have just found myself too busy and not motivated to write a blog post for quite sometime. Originally, the wedding planning basically took over the spot in my life free to do something extra (like blogging) and then I lost motivation after that. Teaching is not an easy job (although very rewarding – and totally worth it!) and it can leave you with very little free time. In that free time, in order to look after yourself, it is important to spend time on you. I needed to spend that time relaxing, exercising and planning a wedding.
However, no excuses! I’m not the only busy person in the world. Even if it’s not regular, I’d like to keep writing posts when I feel the need to tell you about something. You know this blog is for the sole purpose of fulfilling my passions of writing, makeup and sharing my opinion. Therefore when something is interesting, out-of-this-world (a phrase my students love adding into their writing) or really bad then I’ll find some time to tell you about it!
I hope that there are still some of you who have stuck around – let me know if you have!
I’m hoping to have a giveaway over on Facebook – but I’d love to reach 1000 followers first – so go and give the page a “like” and keep your eyes peeled! I usually update on there more frequently than here. 🙂
Let me know what you’d like to see first! Wedding, Wedding Makeup (I did my own), Honeymoon or one of my FAVE beauty sites? Comment down below with your thoughts x
I have just being doing a spot of wedding planning and I thought what better time to sit down and tell you all about how my fiance Tom and I first met. Like, it’s a goodie mate. Go grab a snack, get comfy (I like to snuggle in bed) and prepare yourselves for a super cute story.
My dress made me have a weird tummy look going on – so don’t judge it please!
Good morning class,
Today I’m so excited because I GOT ENGAGED!!!
I didn’t get engaged today – it was on the 6th of March – but I’ve been quite busy with school and wedding planning etc.
Anyway, I bet you’re all aching to hear about how it happened – and I’m so excited to tell you! It is such an amazing proposal he couldn’t have done it any better.
Side note: if you would be interested in hearing how we met, comment down below because that is a pretty different story as well.
Good morning class,
Today I want to chat about nails! You’ll notice I haven’t talked about nails or nail polish very much on my blog and that is because I only stopped biting them near the end of last year. I wasn’t a horrific nail biter who bites right into the nail bed. However I had been biting for as long as I can remember and I have never in my life had nice nails (until now).
I know it’s gross, but I didn’t mean to do it! It was a force of habit and there were two reasons why it happened. #1 I would run my teeth along the underside of my nail (YUCK) and it would eventually weaken and get a crack or something and then I’d have to “fix it up” with my teeth. Or #2 when I was nervous or watching a movie I’d bite them as a way of fiddling or taking my mind off it or something.
I absolutely hated having gross, bitten nails. I really dislike my hands anyway (they’re small, my fingers are double jointed and they look weird) but having bad nails definitely made things worse. I had been trying to stop biting them for a good few months before I succeeded but I always broke or weakened a nail and started from square one again!
I’m one of those people who needs their nails to all be the same. So if one is bitten, the others need to be. If my nail polish has chipped off on one, I pick it off all the others and so forth.
Anyway here is how I stopped biting them!
Good morning class,
I am way too excited about writing this post, especially because I’m currently experiencing the calming feeling of having a cat press against my leg, purring like the soft hum of a Lambo…
I know this isn’t makeup related, and I know I’ve already posted like a million pictures of him on my social media accounts already… but I HAD to tell you about my little bundle of joy!
