September/October Update!

Well I noticed mid-way through October that I hadn't written my usual monthly blog update! 

I was obviously having too much fun or working too hard or a mixture of both! I did get away at the end of September to sunny Spain so maybe that is why, anyway I thought I would combine them together into one update. 

These have actually been slightly quieter months for me after a busy spring/summer although I always manage to occupy my time it seems there are never enough hours in the day lately and life speeds on quicker every day (does anyone else find that?).  I am actively trying to slow myself down and focus on one thing at a time to avoid getting stressed and overwhelmed... easier said than done and some days better than others!

We have just booked a week's winter sun though so I have that to look forward to, anyone else need something to get them through the winter months?  Christmas is fast approaching although it will be a lovely relaxed one at home for us this year so I am looking forward to the restful recharge!  I will be making a Christmas cake in the next week or so and feeding my Christmas pud!

November is a generally quieter month on my calendar although I do have makeup workshops and lessons taking place and pre-wedding trials ahead of those lovely Spring weddings! A few party makeup's coming up nearer to December as well. I'll also be getting a lot of work admin' tidied up ready for a fresh start in the New year and prepping for Christmas festivities.

Below is some snaps taken on my iPhone from September and October.

Wonderful September Birthday celebrations at The Ned hotel.

July Update!

July has been a nice month of not just weddings I have had photoshoots and proms and special occasions galore, so lots of variety with hair and makeup styling! Here are a few lovely photos that my clients very kindly sent to me. 

I have worked with some gorgeous brides recently here is just a few I managed to get pictures of just on my I-Phone.

The ever popular "part up part down" styling, my signature style! I love creating variations of this timeless look.

I made a bit of time to do some painting and drawing this month which has been fun, all jellyfish inspired mostly!  

August is set to be a busy one!  I am also planning further small relaxed and fun makeup workshops held in Harpenden at my home studio, watch my socials for further details coming soon. August 5th workshops are now both full!

I am taking bookings still for 2023 and also 2024/25.  Next year is looking busy particularly June so do book with early to avoid any disappointment.
