The Royal Wedding

The day as finally arrived that Prince William makes Kate Middleton his Princess:

Prince Harry and Prince William:



Kate's sister with the bridesmaids and page boys, didn't she look beautiful?:



Kate arriving at Westminster Abbey, what did you all think of "the" Alexandra McQueen dress? I thought she looked very elegant, not over the top at all, quite plain but effective, very beautiful, kind of a vintage kind of look:



Kate with her father:



Prince Harry, Prince William, Kate and her father:



The married couple:



Balcony Kiss:



The newly weds:



What a wonderful day, both Kate and William seem a lovely, down to earth and happy couple, i wish them all the happiness in the world.

Hair Inspiration

Hello ladies, i hope you've all had a lovely weekend.

I'm having my hair highlighted/cut on Friday and am tempted to go for something a little different to my usual. I had a fringe a few years back:







I loved the look although i found it quite difficult to maintain, it kinked out and took me a while to style plus as my hair grows really fast it felt as though i was having to get it trimmed every few weeks or so.

I'm thinking of growing my layers out so it's all one length, i love having long hair and creating styles which are easily achieveable, the plaits/messy bun being a favourite:







What is your hair like at the moment? Are you happy with it or would too like a change?

Weekly Summary




* I’ve bought my blog url domain, it's quite a nice feeling to know that i own my little space on the world wide web.

* How beautiful was the weather over the weekend? I went for lunch out Saturday afternoon and then out to a few bars in Birmingham in the evening. Sunday my bf drove to Derbyshire and we had a nice 3 course lunch at a lovely countryside pub and then a few drinks in the gardens, bliss.

* I’m due a mobile upgrade in a few weeks, woop, I have an 18 month contract so it seems forever waiting until I receive a new phone. At the moment I have an Iphone 3GS which as always worked amazingly well for me and being a big huge fan of the Iphone i’m thinking of upgrading to the Iphone 4. I’ve heard rumours that the Iphone 5 are being released in September this year, although 9 times out of 10 the first batch always seem to be dodgy. If I do then want the Iphone 5 at a later date then I can just sell my iphone 3GS and Iphone 4 and then buy the 5. You still with me?! Haha.

* I went to my first Zumba class last night and I LOVED it. Very energetic, non stop moving but so much fun too. I’m going to do it every week from now on, I can tell it worked as my legs were aching soooo much afterwards, beats the gym anyday.

* I’ve been snacking on too many unhealthy foods just lately plus the fizzy drinks have been creeping back in on a daily basis, I really need to banish these, especially the fizzy stuff!! My aim is to cut out the pop and instead drink 8 glasses of water per day, if I need anything sweet then it shall be squash or a little fruit juice.

* Money-wise it's going quite well, organising my financial paper bits and bobs (lever arch file, punch pockets and dividers is all you need), keeping a month to month spreadsheet, taking lunches to work etc. There could be improvements although i still want to live a little too, i guess it's all about striking a balance.

OOTN

Hi Ladies, i hope you've all had a lovely weekend. What beautiful weather we've had, who's been enjoying the sunshine? Last night i went out to a few bars and wore:



Dress: Oasis
Heels: Topshop

I wasn't too keen on the dress shape on me, i thought it made me a little too shapeless so i added a skinny belt (Topshop):



What do you think?

I'm off out to the countryside today for lunch, yummy. Hope you all have a lovely day.
