On One Knee.

After five and a half spectacular years together, Ben and I are engaged. I've never been one to dream, or even think, about weddings, so I could never have imagined how happy this would make me, and more importantly, us.

Obviously the thought of make-up crossed my mind upon finally realising that we had a wedding to plan, and I fully intend on doing my own. However, my primary instinct is that it'll be more about the skincare leading up to the wedding, and spending a little bit more time and effort in getting my skin into tip top condition. Either way, it'll be a learning curve on the beauty front as well as the general life front.

Having never really watched nor read any wedding-related beauty videos or blogs, I'm very excited to take in the wisdom of other brides. It'd be amazing to hear from anyone (brides, make-up artists or wedding afficionados) who might have some tips - beauty or non-beauty - for me. Also, if you have wedding-related Pinterest boards that you've made or like, please leave the links below so I can take a peek. Mine in the making, is here :)

My blog is very much part of our lives (oh he does love the piles and piles of make-up, everywhere) and I am so excited to be sharing this with you all. Thank you, as always, for your support! I'm now off to stock up on wedding magazines - I hear it's acceptable to do so if you have a stone on your finger :)

Yu & Ben

P.S. Thank you to Ellie & Luke, Ella, Laurie and Caer for the gorgeous flowers, cards and cava :)
