I have to admit I have a little bit of an obsession with tassels at the minute. I want to put them on everything and I even made a few cat toys with them the other day. Too much? Nada! – Sparked by my tassel craze and this absolutely stunning Mexican inspired material provided by Zazzle, I made my own table runner. I love how it fits so perfectly with this months fiesta theme and I am so excited to get my hands on more Zazzle fabrics soon, their custom collection is the bomb! I have soooo many favourites but right now but my current faves are this Girly Kitten print, these pink flamingoes and this colour block fabric! Seriously guys have a mooch around over there, it is a haven for wedding supplies as well as craft.

Tried & Tested: 3 Alternative Hen Do Activities!

As much as I do love a good night on the town with the girls and lots of cocktails, I am almost a little sad to admit that some of my favourite parties have been those that have involved girly nights in with a bottle of wine, good food and a jewellery making set. I love the idea of spending time with my dearest friends eating scrumptious food, supping on cheeky cocktails and getting creative which is exactly what today’s bride-to-be did.

Kiki enlisted the help of friend and fellow wedding creative Kirsten Butler, otherwise known as the Little Wedding Helper, to help throw a bridal shower that didn’t conform to the norm. It was such a success, that we asked the two of them to share their thoughts and advice on throwing a unique hen do.

Kiki, The Bride to Be…

I’m not really a conventional bride, in fact on a day to day basis I have to admit that I like to shake things up a bit and do things differently! Planner, Kirsten knows that I’m not the sort of person to go all in for a hen do in the traditional sense so I was really touched that she organised a shoot with a few different activities for me and my bridesmaids to get stuck into. I can’t even begin to explain how excited everyone was at the prospect of just chilling out together and sharing some time surrounded by pretty.

Kirsten, The Planner & Stylist…

A hen-party, bridal shower, or whatever you want to call it, should be about more than getting drunk and ‘butlers in the buff’. For me at least it’s about spending quality time with friends and family and doing something together; so for Kiki’s Hen-do I teamed up with some of my favourite suppliers to create a day that would be fun, glamorous, and really beautiful. Kiki’s mum, sister and bridesmaids joined us on the day travelling from London for a day of pampering and surprises.

Have a Makeover!

Kirsten…

I asked Hair and makeup artist Grace Kingsley to be in charge of pampering our guests on the day, so she gave each Hen a neon inspired make-over. I loved the pink lip and simple eyeliner look that she went for and everybody looked beautiful for the photos.

Kiki’s Verdict…

Now I have to say ladies, every girl needs to have a makeover once in a while, its totally luxurious and it was my first ever time, it left me feeling pampered and pretty! If you’ve not done it before or weren’t planning to before your wedding day definitely do! (more…)

Big Bang Themed Science Wedding Inspiration (21)

One of my favourite shows EVER! Has to be the Big Bang Theory, honestly guys I pretty much watch it on repeat every day! No matter how many times i’ve seen an episode, it never fails to make me giggle! So when Samantha of Arius Photography submitted this BBT Styled shoot, I just had to share it with you! Being a bit of a scientist myself, there are so many things I would love to take from this styling to apply to my own wedding, for example the conical and flasks filled with flowers, the test tube planters and domino chain reaction! I am seriously crazy for this and I think you are going to love it too!
