WEDDING DIARIES – Meet the parents… in Sicily

The Wedding Diaries, it has been. a. while. And whilst in every aspect of my life and online I like to be completely truthful and transparent the reason for the break in these entries is that, much like planning life, planning a wedding is STRESSFUL. Aside from writers block, wedding planning drama, working during a busy wedding season, the fact … Read More

THE WEDDING DIARIES – Let the dress hunt commence…

  From the minute we’d got engaged, ‘the dress’ hadn’t really crossed my mind. I know I’ve mentioned many times that a two-year engagement was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made but after the first year has passed (ridiculously quick) I’d eventually realised that I would definitely need to plan this one, as relying on a last minute … Read More

THE WEDDING DIARIES – The Bridesmaid proposal

I had so many rules about Bridesmaids before I got engaged, but after three months of my Mum listening to the in-depth analysis of each friendship… the rules went out of the window. Unashamedly, I have a lot of friends and I’ve somehow managed to surround myself with the best of them. The problem is, where on earth do you draw the line, and … Read More

THE WEDDING DIARIES – The Sicilian venue search

12 hours into being engaged we’d already found our venue, because obviously when you type ‘Italian Wedding’ into that Pinterest search bar… it’s going to happen.

THE WEDDING DIARIES – My big fat (should be Greek) Italian Wedding

They were right, “The first one will always be the most difficult.” And truth be told, every aspect of the first #BESTYOU event was difficult. But as soon as the feedback started to come back every single moment of stress was worth it. The minute I realised that what I was doing was making a difference to women, I couldn’t … Read More

#BESTYOU Makeup Evening

When I first started out as a makeup artist my intention was to do makeup whether it be for an event, a wedding or a special occasion. I’d never thought I had anything more than that to offer, it just happened to be something I very much enjoyed. Five years on and I’m sat here writing a blog post about … Read More

Create Your Look With Just 10 Products

THANK YOU! My first ever Facebook Live Video has been viewed by over 7,500 people and I am honestly astounded as to why that many people wanted to watch me apply a face of makeup using 10 products (at an angle where I also gave myself 10 chins). Here's a video of the Facebook Live I did earlier this week. … Read More
