A couple of weeks ago I received an email from a reader who wanted some ideas on how she could wear her short hair on her wedding day. Having cute and cropped hair shouldn’t restrict what you can do, in fact I think it opens up a world of accessorising possibilities!
Just check out all these ideas…
Keep things simple with an elegant hair comb

Or what about a sweet little alice band?
Clockwise from top left: ‘Blossom’ pearl beaded, glitter alice band, ‘Primrose’ ribbon, embroidered leaves
Faux flower are always a winner

Or you could do for something a bit more fun!

Valentine’s might have officially been yesterday, but in my world every day of the year is an excuse to get all loved up! I challenge you to try not to beam from ear to ear as you look at these gorgeous couples. It’s impossible!
Whatever kind of wedding you’re having – no matter what your theme and how much or how little you spend – the love between the two of you is really all that matters. When you’re freaking out about dress fittings and stressing about guest lists, try to remember that.
Aww ain’t love grand?!

It’s no secret that I am obsessed with flower crowns. I don’t know exactly how many I own, but it’s definitely in double figures.
If you’re the kind of bride that doesn’t want to wear a veil or tiara, why not consider one of these beauties?

Don’t get me wrong, love is a wonderfully glorious thing, but the forced “We’re so in lurrrve, let’s spend lots of money on overpriced bouquets and go to a packed restaurant with everyone else that’s also in lurrrrrve” attitude around Valentine’s Day isn’t really my bag.
Gareth and I are much more likely to stay in with a takeaway than go out to a fancy restaurant, and while he buys me ‘just because’ flowers all the time, I don’t think he’s ever bought me some on V-day. He likes to be unpredictable and I think that’s way more romantic anyway.
In saying that, it is nice to give a nod of “I think you’re the best” to your other half on Valentine’s, but doing so doesn’t have to make you cringe. So I went on a hunt for the most non-butt clenching cards and prints I could find… Oh and one set of marshmallows, because who wouldn’t want to get custom marshmallows as a gift?!
I’ve also partnered with Etsy on this post to give someone a £50 voucher to spend on their website! Just scroll down to the end to find out how to enter.

Your best friend’s just got engaged – YAY! But oh crap, now you have to buy them an engagement present… and it can be quite a difficult task if they like to walk off the beaten path. Where exactly do you look for non-cheesy, non-clichéd gifts that they and their new fiancé will both enjoy? Don’t sweat it sister, I’ve got this covered.
Himalayan salt lamp
Praised for their air purifying properties, salt lamps are cheap, pretty and make for the perfect thoughtful gift. In fact I’ve been lusting after one for myself for a while…
Cityscape bud vases
Vases (with a nice bunch of flowers in them!) are always a good gift, but instead of getting something boring and standard, what about something more modern and fun? I adore these angular cityscape inspired ones.
