Often the first thing that comes to mind for a bride is the dress: long, short, white, coloured, lace, muslin? Hard choice.
But brides should never forget make up and hair, which require a long preparation (months before to detox and have beautiful and radiant skin and hair!).
Let’s see some of the trends for this upcoming Spring Summer 2013:
ALL GLOW SKIN
Definitely a must for this season, forget the old matte – effect: this Spring Summer the base for a stylish makeup will be a glowy and radiant skin, where beauty meets a natural, effortlessy look.
A colour suitable for blondies, red – heads and for brunettes, copper gives a 60s look with a modern twist.
Oh yes. They might leave the trends’ section for a season, but they will be back the following one. The shade may vary – coral, burgundy, Valentino red and many others – but still red.
For this Spring summer we particularly like the coral tone.
UNDER – EYE EYELINER
After fighting for many years against under eye puffiness, heres a new way to cover It!
For this season the eyeliner goes upside down and we like It under the eye, preferably with the top lash bare, creating a very chic smokey… under eye!

According to fashion magazines and latest trends Emerald Green seems to be the colour of the year.
You can believe it or not, but actually there is a special reason for that: Pantone. This company is perhaps the icon of colours and it is they who get to choose the color that the entire world-wide fashion and design industry follow to set collections and trends.
Most of the trend watchers thought the deep ocean Monaco Blue, would have been the choice instead this year. But not at all, Pantone went for the green Emerald. So should we all say thanks to Pantone for this?
Anyway, decorating in 2013 is definitely going to be fun for lovers of green, and we are happy with that!

We’ve loved it so much since it made his apparence at the Wonderful World of Oz and named Emerald.
It immediately brings to mind precious gems, plus it is sophisticated and luxurious, it has a touch of vintage and it is timeless..
It seems like some colors have more staying power than others and this is the case with Emerald, as over the seasons, it is still up to the best choice.
Green is definitely a must in fashion collections, including wedding trends and home collections.

So whats the reason for that? According to Pantone press release, the official reason for choosing Emerald, Pantone 17-5641, is it “enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony,”
We must add: it is chic and sopisticated and almost perfect for any scheme. So yes, we can can imagine why our clients choose this pallette for their wedding day. Perhaps, small details, like green heels, or a green tie, or what about a green cake? .. We have choosen some images for you. Truly unique!

The Emerald is definitely chic and relaxing. On top of that this colour is thought to possess powers of luck and hope.
We think that, with so much beauty and green around us 2013 must surely be full of luck.

Well, Christmas time is definitely coming. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, you must love the atmosphere around it.
So what makes Christmas so special, what makes us feel in the “Christmas mood”?
For some of us, it’s the hustle and bustle of cities with a backdrop of Christmas lights, the smell of roasted chestnuts and mulled wine. For others, the crowded vintage markets, people walking home carrying a Christmas tree and the radio playing “Let It Snow”. Then it is time. Every year it ‘s the same and every year it is so special and different at the same time.

First, it is not Christmas without a Christmas tree or festive home décor. Choose the colours you prefer, remember it can simply match with a winter mood, choose some neutral notes like grey or taupe and add some Christmas colours like green or reds, even oranges, or some fruit for a special touch and never, never forget the lights! Lights, candles and fairy lights, anything on that kind, is good to create a magical atmosphere.
Personalize everything: a mirror, a door, a window, small details… what else?
Christmas can be very special for our brides to be and those who have recently tied the knot or have just moved into the new house!

If your count down has started, discover ways to make it really special. Here are some ideas to spend fashionable days and buy fashionable things for less!
-Buying local, from markets and charity shops is a good way to feel close with our community, sharing something with them and helping people.
-Go to a vintage market on a cold and crisp Winter’s Sunday. This can really help you to feel the Christmas spirit. If you are lucky and if you have an eye for good bargains, markets are the right place for you.
-High street shopping can also be a possibility. Keep an eye on prices but for your Christmas shopping and atmosphere, it is definitely worth a try.

I was looking for a Halloween dress for Zoe, my super diva daughter..when I bumped into Fairytale Jubilee. Oh my, their dresses are truly gorgeous and even though I am late for this year’s order…this is something to keep in mind for a funky wedding. If I were to get married again, my party would be daring and my flower girl would wear one of these creations!
Turk Jadallah, a British/Saudi designer, was showing in London for the first time during London Fashion Week.
I’ve been very lucky to be involved in this show as dresser, so I’ve been working in the backstage and I touched and stared and tried to understand all the dresses.
At first I noticed the black and white monochrome of his dresses. The only colour allowed was the bubblegum pink, due to Barbie that inspired this collection. Then I noticed the ruffle, the layers, the rosettes,
Among ball gowns and cocktail dresses, the closing dress was a bridal dress!
It was the last dress to go on the catwalk but it was first to be dressed due to its complicate veil. Coming out from the tiara it has being tucked into the strap across the back of the dress.
Here an picture of the dress…

The first movie I saw with a wedding in its plot it’s a movie from 1987: “The Princess bride” by Rob Reiner.
A classic fairy tale, with swordplay, giants, an evil prince, a beautiful princess, a handsome guy and some kissing (as read by a kindly grandfather).
It will always be one of my favorite fantasy movie.
How not to talk about Julia Roberts starring in “Runaway bride” and “My best friend’ wedding”?
I think every girl saw these movies…
One of the most funny I have ever seen is “My big fat greek wedding”.
But it’s not all about just having fun…
This movie is about heritage and cultural identity, it’s the story of a Greek woman who falls in love with a non-Greek and struggles to get her family to accept him.
