On Our Wedding Day...


Today... 
I look into the eyes of my best friend 
The one with whom I can share anything with
My deepest hopes and heart-filled dreams
Inner fears and sheltered insecurities
My most warming joys and overwhelming triumphs
All future journeys that I have left to encounter
This and more I know I can share with you 

Today... 
I take pride in my best friend
With admiration I look upon you and smile
For all that you are and all that you do that makes me so proud 
Every part of you that I have come to adore
And for all those parts I have not yet learned
I will live each day from now on cherishing you with honour

Today... 
I share my soul to my best friend
My most prized possession which no other has been given
I give it with great confidence and trust
Because with you I am at peace and I know with you it is safe
You give to me a warmth that I keep with me always
And what else can I give to someone who has given me so much
For you have opened my eyes to see a love, which before you I was blind to 

Today... 
I am marrying my best friend
For I know now God put you here to be my partner
Knowing even before I, 
that you were the one I would live to love guiding me to this aisle, 
He knew your hand would be waiting here for me to hold
Graciously leading me here to you and allowing us to share this moment together
So I could begin the rest of my journeys through life, happily ever after with you.

...My Best Friend

What's In My Wedding Bag?

With the wedding now so close I'm organising the smaller details and preparing my little bag for the day. I wanted something sparkly so when I spotted this bag in Accessorize it was perfect for the occasion and I thought it was reasonably priced at £30. 
Elnett Hairspray
 My hair drops curls and volume quickly so my back-up plan is to take a can of mini hairspray in case I need it.

LED Compact Mirror
With all the photo's that will be taken, a mirror is a must-have to check makeup and ensure there's no lipstick lurking on the teeth or flaky mascara!

Cath Kidston Tissues
 I thought it wise to come prepared. Whether it be for tears or a runny nose if my hay fever strikes, my pretty tissues will be at the ready.

Hello Kitty Mints
With all the guests I'll be greeting I want to be minty fresh but nobody wants to see a bride chewing gum. This tin contains discreet little mints which dissolve quickly.

Bloom Blotting Tissue
I suffer from an oily nose, so these will be essential to keep it shine free throughout the day. I love the cute little packaging and the pastel pink blotting sheets which are lightly fragranced.

Other bits and bobs I'll be taking...

Daisy Purse Spray 
For touch ups throughout the day to keep me smelling beautiful.

Backcombing Brush
If my hair needs a little added oomph during the evening I will have my brush at hand for some va va voom hair.

Makeup
Eyeliner, lipstick, lipgloss, powder, blush - all the little essentials for touch ups.

Guest Post: Sleek Pout Paints

Today's post is brought to you by May from May Loves Makeup...


Hi girls! I'm really excited to be guest posting on Amy's beautiful blog! She kindly sent me some of the new fruity flavoured, Sleek Pout Paints to play with and over the past week I've been enjoying mixing up various shades from these bright little tubes!

I've had Peachy Keen, Pin-Up, Peek-a-Bloo (to warm your lip looks up) and Cloud 9 (to lighten up your shades) to get creative with!

Pout Paints are being hailed as the drugstore alternative to OCC lip tars thanks to their comparable staying power and high pigmentation, because of this they're best applied to your pout with a lip brush!

The best thing about these fun little gems is that you can mix them up to create different shades and dupes, whatever takes your fancy at the time! Here are some recent lip looks I've created with Pout Paints!

I, somewhat predictably, started with a pink lip, with Pin up and Cloud 9 you can create as deep or as pale a shade of pink as your little heart desires!


Next I mixed Peachy Keen and Cloud 9 for a true nude look!


These last two looks are made mixing Pin-Up, Peek-A-Bloo and Cloud 9, more blue creates a sweet lilac shade...


and more red gives you a beautiful, rich, berry pout!


There are 11 shades of Sleek Pout Paint to choose from and you can pick them up for £4.99 each! They're so much fun!
