The Wedding!

If you've read any of my This Week of Mine posts you will know it was my brother's wedding recently. I spent ages getting my outfit together, I don't know how it took so long to be honest.

A few things: 

- You will end up buying shoes from the first shop you went into, so if you like something then buy it, don't go and then spend 6 hours looking round further shops!

- Don't sweat it on the small stuff, no-one really looks that closely at you or cares that much what earrings or shoes you are wearing. 

- If you know certain sleeve styles don't suit you, then for goodness sake don't go and buy a dress for a wedding that will forever be on show on photos for years to come! I was going to edit my outfit photo to cut off my fat arms but that isn't actual real-life blogging now is it?

Anyway onto the day. My sister and I's desk in the hotel ended up crazy, look properly and it seems to read as if from a beauty bloggers essential buys handbook, oops!

The service was really lovely and they had VW campervans taking them to the reception, which was beach themed. You can see in the top photo and just look at the cake!

So different, really unique and totally scrumptious! 

I won't share any pics of other people (apart from my sister) because I wouldn't want to do that without asking but the bride's dress was lace, similar to Kate Middletons but short sleeved. It was totally amazing!

My dress was sleeveless, fitted on the top and flared out to just below the knee and even had a small net under meaning I could do the whole twirling and swishing thing! :D I wore a pair of cream open-toe slingbacks and the awesome fascinator you can see. My hair was curled and pinned to one side.

Something a bit different was the barn dance they had for the first half of the evening, it was very energetic! They also had a machine there that lets you take congratulatory photos and videos and a dressing up box by the side to go with it. That provided much entertainment. I'll wrap up by saying it was a lovely weekend and that I didn't get too many 'What about you?' questions (i'm the eldest you see). I'll leave you with a couple of silly photo's by of sister and I.

This Week of Mine #6

This Week of Mine #6 Harry Potter clothing The Vampire Diaries Exercise

Goodness, i've not posted this for three weeks! Been a little busy, but things have calmed down now. As I mentioned last time, I was off work for the Easter holidays. I'm going to do this post covering two weeks. The first week that I was off before Easter I couldn't tell you what I did, i've not a clue! Time just seemed to fly by and before you know it is is 1pm and i'd just managed to get dressed for the day and then suddenly a whole week had gone!

I did have a lovely day Saturday on the Easter weekend, firstly at a family members 2nd birthday party. After that, we picked Charlotte up from uni and went to a meal for my sister-in-law to-be's hen night.

Easter Sunday and Monday were chilled out days in the sunshine.

On the Tuesday Charlotte and I managed to to spend 6 hours in Telford looking for shoes for the wedding. 6 hours!! I bought two more Harry Potter T-Shirts. The sleeves on one of them aren't really shaped well, but it's HARRY POTTER! I'll just wear it in bed.

Leicester Cathedral Richard III

Wednesday I was visiting Leicester with Dad and we saw Richard III's final resting place. The church is much smaller than it looked on the TV, i'm not sure where they sat everyone that we saw on TV!

In Leicester I found some awesome blue Ravenclaw joggers. I've now come to the realisation that there is a lot of HP clothing around, so I shall calm down in my purchases of it from now on! Hint though: Remember to look in the mens section too, I spied a couple T Shirts there, one of them being of the Marauders Map.

All that week was really just getting ready for the wedding. It's crazy, when it came down to it, I don't know how I spent so long trying to get everything. I guess one thing I learnt is that you can save so much time by keeping up-to-date with day-to-day stuff. I just seemed to have ran out of every product that week or not owned some essential item of clothing, that added to the shopping.

Vampire Diaries
I heard the news about Nina Dobrev leaving The Vampire Diaries.  I've not read why yet but please don't leave Damon with more heartache! It's also moving to a later slot on ITV2. I understand why many of you stream it online but this is not helping ratings. Please try and watch it on TV if you can as ITV2 might not pick up the next season if the falling ratings continue. :(

Funnily enough the first week of the Easter Holidays when I was not at work I didn't do any workouts! The next week though I did Adriennes complete beginners yoga every day and one kettlebell workout. After the workout though, I could not walk or sit down properly for three days, anyone that has done kettlecise before knows this feeling!

The end of this second week was the wedding weekend. I shall cover that next time though.  :)

I hope you all had a lovely Easter (I know it was a while ago now!), thanks for reading! x

I've linked my other weekly updates below if you fancy a peek.
