Kim Kardashian – White House Correspondents’ Dinner

30 Apr

Happy Monday! Today I thought I would share with you a little Celeb Inspiration. Over the weekend the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner was held, and I must say some of the frocks were amazing. However, my favourite was worn by Miss Kim K! Kim covered up her famous curves in a high necked, floor length, green velvet gown with white lace sequinned belt and shoulder panels. With her trademark smoky eye make-up and pale lipstick look, Kim kept it simple with her hair and accessories. Kim looked demure and pulled of this old-hollywood style dress!

Watercolours seem to be an emerging wedding trend. Watercoloured inspired wedding dresses are hitting runways around the word.

Love them or hate them, here is some inspiration to brighten up this rainy Friday afternoon!

“Beautiful dream. The symbolism of Red. Boldly romantic, charming, protective, grand, seductive, sexy. From dahlias to scarlet, crimson and vermillion. A celebration of love.” – Vera.

Mum’s 50th Surprise Party

3 Apr

On Saturday night my husband and I hosted my gorgeous Mummy’s 50th Surprise Birthday. I had been planning it since January, and thankfully everything went perfectly and my Mum was most definitely surprised! The night was an absolute blast and I thought I would share some of the photos with you! I might just add briefly that the Lolly Buffet was an absolute hit (my Dad was a bit skeptical!) it was demolished in minutes!!!All photos are courtesy of Ross Duffy. Thanks Ross for capturing the evening!
