Just like a dream

When I grow up I want a beautiful white wedding that guests will talk about for months (years) after.
I want a white dress so beautiful that the girls all want one for themselves.
My husband to be / best friend / soulmate will know why it didn't work out with the others and be grinning at me like kid all day.
I was lucky enough to witness this happen for my beautiful friend.

The dress was just exquisite. 
Lace, backless with a perfect train.
(I stole these photos from Facebook as mine were awful. The rest are from my humble point and shoot)

The centrepieces were crafted entirely with paper.

The cake was chocolate with white icing. 
What a choice. 

Many glasses of champagne followed and my camera was abandoned in favour of dancing.
The wedding was a celebration of a gorgeous couple and the end of Summer. 
The best part, of course, was the food.
Has it made you want a wedding too?

Harvey Nichols AW Press Day

Last week I was invited to the Harvey Nichols Manchester Press Day.
Four floors of beauty, food and fashion; Harvey Nics is a shopping haven. They never disappoint.
The new styles in each department were displayed for everyone to have a little play.
My three favourite things in one room and a glass of Prosecco? Perfect!

THE Harper bag. Structured leather with front pockets.

I enjoyed having dabbling with the beauty products the most. 
The Jo Malone products smelt divine, I'd love to indulge in a scented candle sometime.
Bobbi Brown is a brand I've not been drawn to, but the bronzer/eye shadows (you could use the palette for both) was just gorgeous.
My favourite discovery by far was the YSL Touche Eclat foundation. A liquid that glided on and set matte, it made my skin look flawless and feel moisturised; a real luxurious product.
What is your favourite foundation? Any recommendations?
