Life Snippets – The Bridal Shower & Brand New Newlywed Series

THE BRIDAL SHOWER

 

Happy Monday Lovelies,

I’m starting the week off with a home day which involves a whole lot of final wedding prep admin. Don’t worry, come October you’ll see less and less of the ‘W’ word I promise! This weekend gone I celebrated my Bridal Shower and it was honestly one of the best days I’ve ever been a part of. Let’s just say I officially have the best sister friend project manager bridesmaid London has ever known! She’s a beast when it comes to organizing and planning events so I was definitely blessed to have her plan this little old day for me!

I’ve had a serious urge of late to share more and more of my wedding planning process and journey as a newly wed. Whilst I still have a whole lot to learn there’s also so much I’ve learned already in the now 329 days I’ve been engaged. So ladies, I’ve taken the plunge and have started a new series on my YouTube Channel called ‘Life As Mrs K’. I won’t go into too much detail on it as the video says it all, but hopefully you can catch more of me there and most importantly of all I hope you enjoy it!

 

Love Always,

Fi

But now with just a few weeks to go my weekdays and weekends are a mixture of Bridal showers [yes plural], final guest list screening and ordering furniture and READ MORE »

My In-Shower Scalp Stimulation Experience |Vanity Planet Shampoo Brush

SHAMPOO BRUSH

Of all of the techniques I’ve put to the growth test, I must say tools have taken a serious seat on the bench, at least until I was sent the Vanity Planet Scalp Massaging Shampoo Brush to give READ MORE »

Get The Look : Currently Obsessed with Crochet Braids

CROCHET OBSESSION

 Over the past couple of months my pinterest and instagram feed have been overflowing with photos of ladies with the juiciest and bounciest looking spiral sets I’ve ever seen.

The Answer To Every Mans Prayers? No Sew Satin Pillowcase

diy satin pillowcase

Just before I published the video of this quick no sew satin pillowcase, I mentioned on instagram that bedtime discussions with hubby in prep for married life had led me to a very daring verdict, and I quote…

‘Whilst Mr has seen me in all of my headscarf glory (cooking, cleaning, running errands etc) & has no complaints. I think and agree with him and other males that as a married man, occasionally wanting to see your wives beautiful hair at bedtime is no crime!’
