If you are thinking of going or would like to go to this caribean island, there are a few things you should know!

  • Officially the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, is an archipelagic state of the Lucayan Archipelago consisting of more than 700 islands, cays, and islets in the Atlantic Ocean; north of Cuba and Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic); southeast of the US state of Florida and east of the Florida Keys. Its capital is Nassau on the island of New Providence.
  • The water is so clear, that divers experience visibility up to 60m (200 feet)
  • It is one of the busiest cruise ports in the world. It gets extremely crowded in the months of March and April.
  • You can easily comunicate in English
  • Their currency is the US dollar and Bohemian dollar.
  • The Bahamas is known for its stellar beaches. With over 2,000 breathtaking islands and cays, and the clearest water on Earth, visitors come from all around to sink their toes into miles of pure white, and in some places pink, sand. Many of their beaches have been voted “best in the world” by numerous publications.
  • Honeymoons in The Bahamas offer couples experiences found nowhere else in the world. And with 700 tropical islands to explore, you don’t have to stay in one place. Spend one day on a remote island, the next in a bustling metropolis.

 

However you decide to escape, there’s no doubt your honeymoon will be just as memorable as your wedding day!

Pop of colour!

For those that love a pop of colour, how about Teal and Fuchsia!
You can play about with these two colours and no matter what you do with them, they always seem to go perfectly.

It doesn’t necessarily need to be for your wedding, it can also be for your bridal shower!
I have placed a palette together at the top of the page which can be used as guidance, for when you are gathering all the decorations as well as flower arrangements.

As you have been able to notice this type of decoration is more fitting for either a spring wedding or a summer wedding, it gives a little bit more of freshness!

If you are getting married during spring or summer, you may want to consider this pop of colour.
If you got married and used this same palette I would love for you to share it with us!

 

Much love

How to know which dress is best for you

So you are getting married and its time to pick the dress. There are so many dresses to pick from, but unfortunately not all look so great. You have to know your body type, you could be tall and thin or hourglass figure, not all dresses will look good, so rather than spending time on trying things you like but get disappointed when you try them. How do you know what to look for without having to spend so long searching for that perfect dress.

Given that I have a bit of a fashion background I know a few things about what style suits who and I will share a little bit of my knowledge with you guys.

Lets start with the dresses.

This is the A line dress. Why is it called A-line? Well because it gradually widens towards the hem, giving the impression of the shape of a capital letter A. The term was first used by the French couture designer Christian Dior as the label for his collection of spring 1955. This style of dress suits mostly everyone  if you are pear shaped or apple, full figure or petite. it is the most fitting type of dress out there.

 

The Empire waistline Dress. A high waistline that cuts horizontally across the body, just below the bust. This waistline gives a long, slender look and excellent fabric drape in the skirt and allows for short, inconspicuous shaping darts. This waistline was popular in Jane Austen’s time. The outline is especially flattering to pear shapes, full figure, petite or apple shape wishing to disguise the stomach area or emphasize the bust. The shape of the dress also helps to lengthen the body’s appearance.

 

The Ball Gown Dress. This dress is long and formal, its fitted at the bodice with a very full skirt.  The ball gown shape has changed little since the mid-19th century. Its flattering on average height to tall women as the skirt visually cuts the body in half, its a very forgiving style hiding everything from the mid section, down.

 

Sheath Dress. In fashion, a sheath dress is a type of dress designed to fit close to the body, relatively unadorned. Unlike many cocktail dresses and the longer ballroom dress, a sheath dress typically falls around the knees or lower thighs.  It works well for hourglass figure ladies as well as petite and tall ladies.

 

Trumpet Dress. This style of dress fits closely to the body until mid hip then it widens gradually to the hem, resembling the mouth of a trumpet, hence the name. It is often confused with the mermaid dress but the trumpet flair from mid hip whereas the mermaid flares below the knee. This style adds curves on a straight figure or it can accentuate curves on a full figure.

 

Mermaid Dress. Mermaid, as the name suggests, means that the evening gown is shaped like a mermaid. It is form-fitting at the bodice, and the skirt is designed to resemble a mermaid’s tail in silhouette. So it fits closely from the chest to the knees then it flares out to the hem. Best suited for hourglass figure.

Of course there are others but these are the main ones you will find in every bridal shop.
I hope you liked the small insight.

Stay tuned for more bridal updtaes!

…and I’m back

Yep, I know. I have been away for a while. A lot has happened, not going to go into detail but lets say that I was in a bit of a rough patch, but now that I have time to sit down I will write a little bit.

I decided to build up a website and have been doing my own templates, for those brides to keep track of what they need to do and what has been done already. There are many things one can miss but since it is taking FOREVER  to actually finish the website, I will share it here.
Look out for that new tab where you can find 2 templates. The latest I have been working on is a Wedding binder, which you will see soon enough.

I guess that is all I have to say for now.

Pop-Up

Hello there,

No, I have not forgotten to write, I was actually quite busy and did not have time to sit down 😦

So many things happened, between my son and me getting a cold and an impromptu visit to Barcelona (for business), my aunt arriving from Malaysia, it has been quite full.

BUT

I’m not going to talk about that any more, as promised, I took a lot of pictures from the event and it was quite wonderful, there were not a lot of providers since it was the first time this has ever been made and I guess there were a lot of companies that were scared that no one would show up.

Nevertheless it was great! As you know I have mentioned that I am part of a group of Latin Women (the link should be on the side bar) well we took the opportunity of the event to launch ourselves, it was quite successful, we have had 3000 visitors in just a week, which I believe is incredible (if you were to live where I do, you would know why) Our goal is to reach all Latin people around the world and to get the message across that it doesn’t matter if you are far from your country, you can still enjoy the traditions wherever you are.

Anywhoo, I will leave you with this gallery of pictures that I took at the event.

Thank you for reading!

 

Excitement

Well hello there 🙂

This week I am super excited as there is this Pop Up that I will be going to this Saturday.
It is a Wedding Pop up, so now you can tell why I’m excited.

Where I live the closest Wedding Fairs I can go to are 2 hours away and in order to enjoy them, the drive back would be too late, plus I don’t like taking my munchkin out too late.
This event is a mere 15 minute drive from my house, so yep looking forward to it!

As I mentioned before I have created a group of Latin American Ladies and we will be presenting ourselves in this event, so if any of my readers, speak Spanish, please visit my other blog, which I share with all these wonderful ladies. If you don’t understand any Spanish, that’s okay, the pictures are pretty great too 😀

That’s all I have to say for now, I will post about this Saturday soon!!

As always thank you for reading!

Question answered

So I have been asked a question on how I spend time with my son.

I do dedicate time to him and I will share my schedule so you know how I do it, I don’t want to be one of those moms that does not spend any time with their children, I know some can’t but I do try to give him most of the time I have spare. I suppose my job does let me as well.

So I work in the morning from 8:30 -14:30 the rest of the day is for him. When he is taking a nap which at the minute they are lasting between an hour or two, that’s when I study law, or wedding planning, personal assistant course or even mess about looking at other blogs.  I also clean when he’s napping unless he’s napping on me, which he currently is due to his teeth coming out.
I don’t work weekends so my weekends are also for him, I try to not do any studying, just play time and play trips.
A big plus is that I have the help of my mother, without her I wouldn’t know what to do.

Apart from that I am a little disappointed because the masquerade ball wont happen, at least not yet. Too little time to plan a proper thing so now we have made plans to make a christmas lunch and a secret santa. At least its something. Anyways, apart from that there has been nothing interesting going on this week just a lot of paperwork.

 

As always Thank you for reading!!

I’ve Done it

I have finally sat down and drafted a weekly schedule to write on here, it was about time.
I needed to since there are so many things going on at the minute, I was able to fit in everything nicely and now I even have more time to do my wedding planning.
Gosh, what a little agenda can do for a human being. It is a must.

I have a new idea for an event, I will start planning a masquerade ball before Christmas, so that should be exciting. I have to get my thinking hat on and get a moodboard and start booking suppliers. Little ideas here and there  make you go from the bottom to the top, like everything, it takes time.

Brain Fart Alert!

I must admit, I never understood why people said life is a journey, I guess that when you are small, you don’t pay too much attention to what is going on, so I admire people who has had it all figured out since I’ve just started to. I don’t know how you guys would call it but I have been lucky or blessed or have been attracting good opportunities my way lately, and I am glad that I’ll have you to share it with.
I might not know you guys but I will share every step of the way until I finally reach my goal. It will take time but at least now I’m getting the base, a feel of what is to come and I am super excited.

I will keep you guys posted with progress on the ball.

Thank you for reading!

Well It’s been a while.

I must admit, I haven’t made time to sit down and write on my blog and honestly I needed to.

A few things have happened recently, so I will have to organise myself better.
Apart from the Wedding Planning course I am doing, as you know, I am also studying for Personal Assistant, and now an new one has fallen onto my lap, which is related to where I am currently working, I will be trained to be a Paralegal.

In case you guys are not familiar, A paralegal is an individual, qualified by education, training or work experience who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, governmental agency or other entity and who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work for which a lawyer is responsible.
So now my schedule has gotten much busier, I really do need to sit down and plan it all.

I have also been in collaboration with some ladies, in order to do a lifestyle blog. This should be interesting, it will be all in Spanish though, so if you guys know any Spanish I invite you go ahead and have a look, if not, you can always look at the pretty pictures.

Anyway that is all I got for now, hopefully next time I write it will be because I have all my planning done and I will have writing on my blog as a weekly thing rather than when I remember I have one.

Thank you for reading!
