Tips On How To Choose The Perfect Wedding Shoes

*This post is a collaboration between Bride Magazine and The Best Beauty Blog

My husband and I met on 31st October 2009 and around 7 months later, we got married – and let me tell you, it was the best decision I ever made.  There was only a short period of time between our engagement and wedding – one and half months!! – so I didn’t have a lot of time for wedding planning so I needed to make quick snap decisions.  For example, shopping for a wedding dress only took me 20 minutes because I bought the first wedding dress I tried on.  However, when it came to buying wedding shoes, it took me slightly longer – and that was because my dress was not floor-length which meant that my wedding shoes would be on show so I really had to hunt down the “perfect wedding shoes”.  When I found them, I was ecstatic – they were PERFECT!  It turns out my wedding photographer thought so too because she took a few wedding shoe shots.

Anyway, I have collaborated with Bride.com.au, to give you 3 helpful tips on how to choose the perfect wedding shoes :-

Monthly Subscription Boxes : Violet Box, Her Fashion Box & Wantable

In the latter half of 2011, beauty boxes had just arrived in Australia and I subscribed to a couple for a few months for beauty blogging purposes but I wasn’t overly impressed and felt my money was better spent elsewhere (I am a hard one to please).

Then in 2012, I received a few beauty boxes for review and I was probably more impressed with the packaging and the cardboard boxes itself than the actual contents *oops* – but I did feel it was an improvement to 2011.

Enter 2013 and now there are monthly surprise subscription boxes for EVERYTHING – food, drink, underwear, sex toys…!!  But don’t worry, for the interests of this blog, I am referring to fashion and /or beauty boxes…

Recently, I received a few monthly boxes from different companies and I’ve decided to gather all my thoughts and package it all into one blog post :)

I’m interrupting my usual beauty posts with my new handbags today…

Yes, I have been shopping again…!

First up, I have the SPLURGE handbag which was from SABA…  You know it’s SPLURGE-y when it comes wrapped in a dust bag and the shop has a branded cardboard bag (instead of plastic fantastics) and the price tag of the bag is in 3 figures!!  *gulps*

What’s In My Beach Bag?

What's in my beach bag?

{ Happy Friday peeps!  I had a Peking Duck dinner date last night so didn’t have time to prepare a post for today so I had a look at my unpublished drafts and here is what I found -’What’s In My Beach Bag?’!!!  I actually wrote this over a year ago…but it seems kinda apt because Melbourne has been crazy hot and great beach weather if you like getting sunburnt ;) 

Looking back at this post, I realised that I made a great investment by purchasing this DSLR camera for better photos :P  Anyway, on with the post and I wish all the Aussie peeps a happy long Labour Day weekend :)  4.5 hours till mine starts :)  (yes I am typing this whilst having a wee break at work – shhh!!!) }

Melbourne has been going through some sunny spells recently and you know what that means, right?  Time to hit the beach!  Here’s what I put in my beach bag :-
