HOW TO PIN YOUR WAY TO THE PERFECT WEDDING Pinterest is taking over the world of wedding planning, how to be in on the act.

The question was popped, the family told, the date set...now what? Increasingly the first place that most newly engaged couples turn to is Pinterest. It seems the obvious choice, being one of the fastest growing social media platforms out there today. In fact, a fair few pinners already have a head start on the planning pins with an incredible 70% of users admitting to having already made wedding boards before they are even engaged,   http://mashable.com/2014/07/21/social-media-wedding-survey/.

The sheer volume of images on Pinterest is staggering, it can be a little daunting, not to mention time consuming wading your way through it all. The best wedding plan? Find some top-notch pinners whose wedding boards you can follow. And, as well as popular wedding pinners, pinterest can be a great place to check out potential wedding venues. When you’ve found a venue, have a look at their pinterest profile, they are going to have a loads of wedding ideas suitable for their location. The same goes for your wedding dress designer.

But, first up, my favourites...

Pin down a venue:

There really isn’t a limit to how much you can use Pinterest in your wedding planning, as well as a source of inspiration and general wedding ideas it can be used to find everything from your caterer to your wedding venue. The attraction? You get to see not just the venue’s official photos, but also every image taken there that has ever been pinned, the whole picture in every sense. All in one place.


A search for ‘wedding venues uk’ comes up with not just locations, but all kinds of pins. The amount of pins on this platform mean that it’s easy to be more specific with your search, say, ‘wedding venues Worcestershire’.


From there you can find the venue that has been getting the most pins, in this case, ‘Birtsmorton Court, http://www.birtsmortoncourt.com/’ and it’s then a hop, skip and a jump to check out their own pins and get a good idea of how a wedding at their venue might look.


The joy of pinterest is that once you have found a few boards or pinners to like and follow similar pins will start popping up for you automatically, so in effect the job is being half done for you. You just have to start pinning.

Who to follow:

Wedding Chicks have a pretty impressive collection of boards on every wedding category you could think of. They’ve stacked up over 25,000 pins! Following these boards alone is sure to keep you busy. http://uk.pinterest.com/weddingchicks/. Helpfully, their boards are clearly set up so you can pick and choose what you want to see.


Style Me Pretty is one of the hottest wedding blogs on the web today, and their pinterest boards are amazing. 120 boards, nearly 6 million followers they are a wedding force to be reckoned with. There are a lot of pins here though so my advice would be to follow just the boards that you like so as not not spend years on your wedding planning.


If all the pale pinks and gleaming white boards are a bit sickly sweet for you, if you are planning a bit of an anti-wedding wedding then try Stone Fox Bride. They make good wedding dresses, they also make good boards. A different take on bridal inspiration.

How to Dress Like a Rock Star

The Rock n Roll look is effortlessly cool, its grunge and chic at the same time, and focuses on making a statement with your fashion. Dressing like a rock star requires imagination and dedication to looking ridiculously cool – think you can pull it off? Here are a few fail-safe ways to transform look:

Band Tees

Somewhat synonymous with the rock n’ roll era, the band tee is both a timeless cry of devotion to your favourite band and an easy way to inject the rock star element into any outfit. Coupled with some distressed denim, skin-tight black wet-look leggings, or even a cute maxi skirt: the band tee immediately creates the rock look, no matter what it’s paired with. Check these out for some inspiration.

The Hair

If bright green Mohawks don’t really do anything for you, gone are the days when hair dye was straight-up permanent. Hair Chalk is a revolution – you can add as much or as little colour as you’d like, without the commitment (and huge salon bills) of dying your hair. Hair chalk only lasts a couple of days at the most and is inexpensive, and most of all, a lot of fun!

If you are looking for a more permanent look, a great addition to the rocker look is the ombre trend that seems to be everywhere right now! Ombre, or dip-dying, is the gradual changing of hair colour from shaft to ends. Any colour combination imaginable is possible – and with your hair enough of a rocker statement itself throwing together the rest of the look will be a piece of cake!


If I were to say “rocker” to someone, chances are they will have a pretty good indication of what kind of fashion this would look like. Think hard and soft mediums together, a combination of blacks and metals with bright, full colours like yellow and pink. Necklaces, bracelets, earrings and ear cuffs – you can paint a pretty good picture in your head of the type of fashion jewelry rockers love!

Rocker-style fashion jewellery is all about fun and self expression!

Textures and Materials

It’s no secret that the rock-star look for both guys and girls is very much centred around leather, denim, metals and the colour black. So what do you get if you put all of these elements together? A kick ass rocker look, that’s what. The one big fundamental for any rock-star wardrobe is the quintessential leather jacket. Here is one of my favourites jackets for the girls.

Makeup Tips and Tricks

Winged eyeliner and bright lips are a must! This look goes fantastic with the sometimes OTT fashion jewelry rockers love. If you have an unsteady hand (like most mere mortals) there are plenty of tutorials online for the perfect rock look winged eyeliner. Couple a smoky winged eye with a purple or red lip and you’re in business! These are some of our favourite looks:

Denim and Boots

If you don’t think you can rock tight leather pants – and let’s face it, most of us can’t – the distressed denim look is the way to go. Denim jeans, light or dark, look amazing when they’re distressed, ripped and torn and go perfect with an oversized band tee and a leather jacket. Throw the outfit together with a pair of brown or black leather ankle boots and your rock star look can’t fail! And we all know, you can never go past the perfect pair of black Doc Martens. Check these out:

Remember – the most important thing in styling your rock star self is to be you. Fashion is about expression and having fun. You ARE a rock star, regardless of how you wear it.

Great Ideas for the Fifth Anniversary: Wood Rings to the Rescue

According to the traditional wedding anniversary gift list, the fifth anniversary can be a tricky one: wood. Luckily, with the increasing popularity of eco-friendly wood jewelry, the choices are much better than they were in the past. Back in the day, you were pretty much stuck with things like wooden-soled platform shoes for ladies and briar wood pipes for the gents. Today, koa wood rings are a much better solution for both. (And needless to say, healthier than the pipe, too.) 

Why Wood Rings 

Even if you weren’t buying for the fifth anniversary, wooden rings make attractive gifts for a host of good reasons. The koa wood frequently used in wood rings was once used by the ancient Hawaiians to build canoes, spears, and paddles that are now often considered priceless works of pre-industrial art. Koa wood is known for its amazing variety of grain structures and an incredible range of colors, too. In addition to its timeless beauty, when used in conjunction with titanium the koa wood ring is hypoallergenic and eco-friendly to boot. 

More Than Just Rings 

It gets even better: you’re not just restricted to rings anymore, either. Although an affinity for wood rings started the modern wood jewelry craze, today you can find such varied wood pieces as earrings, cufflinks, and bracelets to name just a few of the possibilities. So if that guy on your list wants nothing to do with wearing another ring, fear not. He would probably love a handsome set of koa wood cufflinks. 

You can always find a great selection of genuine koa wood jewelry and more at Altin Place. They also offer the finest rolex repair available. Their true CW-21 Certified Watchmakers use only authentic factory parts and offer impeccable service with very attractive pricing.

InstaLife #21

Buna fetelor!
 Am revenit cu InstaLife fiindca am reusit sa strang poze. Am perioade in care as poza totul si perioade in care nimic nu ma multumeste. :))
Cred ca ma cam deprima vremea de aici, acum vreo 2 zile ploua in reprize de cate 10-15min, ba chiar erau mini-furtuni, tot in aceeasi zi a fost si grindina de 2 ori.. Lovely! :))
Gata, nu va mai tin la povesti, trebuie sa fug la cursuri, asa ca haideti sa vedem pozele.
Poate va era dor de mine.. :)
Trebuie sa ma vopsesc, stiu, dar inca nu am timp de asta.

Buna fetelor!

E vineri, in sfarsit, si e zi de imbulinareee! Credeti ca voi lipsi, nu? Ei bine, la mine inca nu e 11, am o scuza. :))
M-am tot gandit si razgandit, dar pana la urma am decis ca daca mi-e dor de ceva dark, apoi dark sa fie - am pus mana pe negru si l-am indulcit cu fuchsia si bej-auriu. Sper sa va placa ce a iesit!

Colaborare: Vinerea imbulinata 25

Buna frumoaselor!

Saptamana trecuta am fost atat de prinsa cu impachetatul si atat de zapacita, incat am uitat sa editez pozele pentru imbulinare si astfel am ratat-o cu desavarsire.. Imi cer scuze, scumpele mele Dee si Alexia au postat, eu am fost dusa cu pluta, doar stiti ca-s oaia neagra a grupului. Daca nu eu, atunci cine? :))

Review: Salmon darkcircle concealer cream - Skin Food

Buna fetelor!

De cand am inceput sa folosesc cosmetice am fost in cautarea anticearcanului minune. Daca nu exista o bagheta magica cu care sa-mi fac cearcanele nedorite sa dispara, am cautat macar o crema colorata care sa ma ajute sa le ascund.
Anticearcanul Salmon darkcircle concealer cream de la Skin Food a picat la tanc, tocmai terminasem un altul si voiam sa incerc altceva. L-am zarit prin multitudinea de produse de pe Cosmetic-Love si al meu a fost.

Review: Herra Hair Perfume

Buna frumoaselor!

Cand eram mica, mama obisnuia sa-mi pulverizeze un puf de parfum in par, era micul ei truc care-mi placea la nebunie. Faceam asta si dupa ce am crescut, mai rar ce-i drept, insa cand am aflat ca exista un parfum special conceput pentru par am fost in culmea fericirii!

Buna fetelor!

Afara e senin, dar e rece, tare rece.. Stand in pat sub paturica m-am gandit sa scriu o postare InstaLife, desi nu am reusit sa fac prea multe poze, pe unele le-am inclus in ultimele 2 postari. Trebuia totusi sa va tentez cu ceva, nu? :)

Nu se putea sa nu va tentez cu ciocolata, nu? :))
Ciocolatele Milkinies sunt printre preferatele mele, le-as papa non-stop!

My first shopping session in England

Buna fetelor!

Inca nu m-am acomodat si inca  nu stau cu vreo fata care sa ma ajute cu pozatul sau care sa nu se uite chioras cand am chef sa-mi pictez gherutele cu nspe mii de oje, dar incerc sa scriu cand am ocazia.
Astazi vreau sa va arat prima mica sesiune de shopping facuta in Anglia. Deoarece in bagaj nu mi-au incaput sampoane, geluri de dus sau creme de corp, aveam nevoie sa imi cumpar toate acestea. Si daca ma bagi intr-un magazin care pare deprins din visele mele - Sleek, Max Factor, Gosh, Maybelline, etc, toate frumos aliniate, standuri intregi de oje Nicole by O.P.I. si multe alte bunatati pe care zau ca mi-a fost teama sa le privesc, ca deh, ma stiu pacatoasa, cum credeati ca puteam pleca de acolo doar cu un sampon si-un gel de dus?! :)

Review ~ Ochelari Firmoo

Buna fetelor!

Voi purtati ochelari de vedere? Eu nu port, insa iubitul meu da, asa ca am fost incantata cand cei de la Firmoo m-au contactat pentru a primi o pereche de ochelari la alegere. Firmoo.com este cel mai cunoscut magazin online care comercializeaza atat ochelari pe baza de prescriptie medicala, cat si ochelari de soare, de protectie pentru PC sau pentru citit. Imi place mult programul pentru testarea vituala a ochelarilor - puteti uploada poze pe site si puteti incerca diferite perechi de ochelari, ca sa va faceti o idee despre cum vi s-ar potrivi.
