OOTD & Mayfield Lavender Farm


Making the most of the scorching weather, the boy and I made the most of the sunny weekend with a casual BBQ with friends on Saturday followed by a trip to Mayfield Lavender Farm on Sunday (followed by yet another BBQ!). If you live around Surrey then Mayfield Lavender Farm is definitely worth a visit, it's a breath-taking sight with purple fields as far as the eye can see with fresh lavender bunches, lavender ice cream, cakes and a good old BBQ all on offer. There is also a photography competition with £200 going to the best photo taken at the farm this summer so if you're a budding photographer head on down there and join the dozens of snap-happy visitors.

Royal Ascot | Outfits, Photos & Top Tips

'Are you wearing..two dresses? What..I don't..IS it two dresses..Let me touch it.. No..I just don't understand this at all..' - this outburst was followed by me patiently explaining the 'Peplum' trend to my friend James and reassuring him that no, no I was not wearing two dresses it was, in fact, just the style of the dress and that was how it was supposed to look ('Are you sure?' 'Yes. Shut up.') Anyway, a few weeks ago we all put on our glad-est rags and headed off to Royal Ascot for the day. My three top tips for attending Ascot are..


Bridal / Wedding Makeup

Following on from my 'The Wedding' post I thought I would share with you all the products I used to do my Bridesmaid makeup. We all did our own makeup on the day, -which I know is pretty unusual - but between us we were a super-beauty-obsessed bunch and knew that we probably trusted ourselves enough (and had enough makeup stash and skill between us) to ensure we looked wedding-ready....


The Wedding...

Two weeks ago I had the greatest pleasure and huge honour of being a Bridesmaid at the Wedding of two of my best friends from University. I have put together a Wedding Makeup post but this is going to be me sharing the magical day with you. The Wedding was held at Hever Castle with the Ceremony taking place in The Italian Gardens and the reception in The Guthrie Pavillion. It's safe to say that it was the most beautiful, magical, wonderful day and the happiness that radiated from the Newlyweds was utterly infectious and heartwarming....


How To: Cheat A Blow Dry | Six Simple Steps To Give Kate Middleton A Run For Her Money by Sandy of absolutebeaut.com

I've made no secret of my addiction to blowdries, but I've always struggled to achieve that salon-look at home - enter Sandy from absolutebeaut.com ! Not only does Sandy run one of my new favourite blogs  (her nail art is insane!) but she has hair to die for and so I am handing over TBG to Sandy for todays post...

Nothing puts a spring in my step quite like a fresh blow dry. Cue a few Kate Middleton impressions and LOTS of Pantene worthy hair-swishing. A good blow dry can turn a bad day into an amazing day. But apparently, having a personal hair stylist on hand (with bionic blow dry arms that never get achey) isn't a very realistic aim for somebody that isn't actually royalty. So here’s a minimal effort method to recreate the blow dry look yourself.
