New Beginnings | 2015

LITD ~ new post_0010


If you’re not signed up to our monthly newsletter then you may have missed the new and exciting news ~ we have a brand new spanking website dedicated to Styling and Art Direction.

The blog will of course continue but this is a new and exciting avenue.

As with most of you I am sure, we are using the festive season to recharge, reinvigorate and take a little time out to enjoy with family and friends.

We’ll be back in the new year but for now – pop over to the new site and read up on the last newsletter of the year (sign up at the bottom of the site too if you want to be in with the monthly loop)

To 2015…….

Half up half down hair

LITD ~ Hair_0001

There is something about the half up half down do that seems to make sense for a lot of brides; all the prettiness of something up with all the laid-back chic of the rest down. Perfect.

It was the style of choice for my own day and it I was to do it again (I think about this a lot) then I’m pretty sure I would opt for something similar. Or was it the top knot? Or the fishtail for wedding number 2? I digress….

A small round up of some of my current favourite half way looks roaming the likes of pinterest at the moment.

Enchanted Woodland

There is something wonderfully special about woodland inspiration, it’s almost as if fairy dust  really does exist as it always seems so magical.

We may not have many woods here in the UAE but this enchanted feel is absolutely and completely possible here. An abundance of flowers, moss and wood is just the start to achieve this look. Earthy colours mixed with blush and creams, light fabrics and organic textures are the icing on the cake. Hanging florals will ensure that you are completed surrounded in your nature cocoon.

This really is a beautiful theme and perfect for the bride who dreams in pixie dust.

Festive Wrapping

Somehow, and I really don’y know how, it’s that time of year again. Christmas is so very nearly upon us.

As I sing along to ‘Santa Baby’ and ‘fairytale of New York’ (best Christmas songs ever) here are some ideas to get your creative wrapping juices flowing. My absolute favourite idea has to be the gift boxes connected to the animals….ah-mazing, ingenious and awesome and one I will be storing and stealing for the future.

So from the simple to the extraordinary your wrapping needs are covered.

With so many free printables on the internet now for tags here is one of my favourite blogs with their awesome offering.
