Preparing Your Face For Your Bridal Portrait

There is one thing that every bride knows: there is never enough time to prepare for your big day. You could always do more. Admittedly, it has a lot to do with self-confidence. Getting married is an emotional moment, and you want to look and feel your best on the special day.

If you are concerned about the bridal portrait, you likely have already scheduled all the necessary skincare appointments. The bridal portrait is the traditional session that showcases your look before the wedding. The dress receives a lot of attention, but most photographers will also include close up shots of your face. The right makeup and hairstyle can do a lot for you. But when all the attention is on your face, you don’t want anything to distract from your energy.

Therefore, you want to focus on managing all issues and discomfort with your eyes, smile, skin, facial hair, and nose ahead of the wedding. It will give you that extra boost of confidence. 

Unique Handmade Jewellery by Treaty

Today on the blog I'm excited to introduce the most amazing jewellery brand based in and inspired by the coastline of St Ives, Cornwall which is one of my favourite places in the UK. Treaty Jewellery is a family owned business, founded by mother and son: Maggie and Josh over 10 years ago but now run by Josh and his partner, Florence who is the nicest person ever and super glam!

Treaty design unique handmade silver plated jewellery, that is 100% recyclable and hypoallergenic, asserting themselves as a leader in ethical manufacturing and sustainability. What makes their jewellery so unique is that they use .925 silver plating onto an aluminium core which creates a beautiful, burnished silver which is both hard wearing and durable. Besides their amazing, high quality jewellery I also love that Treaty use real, un-edited women in their campaigns, they've even posted my pictures a few times on their instagram which I really appreciate.

I was given four jewellery pieces to review from Treaty at a discount, scroll down to see the gorgeous, hand made pieces!

How to Maintain a Healthy Relationship in Lockdown

COVID-19 has not only affected our lives but also many relationships, whether you're single or not. Living with your partner you are constantly forced to spend more time together than ever before and rely on them for social support because you can’t see your friends or family. You may also be balancing new responsibilities like working from home, child care and home schooling. It’s undoubtedly a lot of change all at once. 

Being confined to your home with your partner, especially if you live in a small apartment instead of a house with hardly any space to just have some "me" time can be difficult to say the least. I myself have lived with my finance in an apartment for the past six years so I'm sharing my tips for maintaining a healthy relationship in lockdown and keeping that spark alive.
