A weekend in Paris with Peugeot

Upon arrival we got drinks and bites and a presentation of Net5's roster for next season, proving once again that they're your one-stop shop for drama series. Net5 staples like Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives will return, but there will be plenty of their own Dutch productions as well.Tulle Prom Dresses

After the presentation Chloë and I hit the town, shopped loads and loads and at the end of the night we ended up back in our fancy hotelroom with champagne, McDonalds' and Burger King. 

So a while ago I got a mysterious e-mail asking if I wanted to come to Paris for an unforgettable 'eXperYence'. I'm always up for a trip to Paris, especially if I get to bring a friend, so I said yes. On Saturday morning my bestie Michelle and I were on a plane to Paris, not really knowing what to expect, but just deciding not to expect too much of it. We'll have fun together anyway.

When we landed at Charles De Gaulle we were welcomed by a driver with a very awesome car. He took us to this lovely hotel called Mama Shelter. Definitely a recommendation if you're looking for a place to stay in Paris. The design was perfectly quirky. Our driver told us to enjoy our day and that he'd pick us up at the hotel in the evening.view more

Hair Care.

Halter Prom Dresses uk  So, I recently went to get my hair re-touched because I was in much need to freshen up the brown in my hair. Many of you always ask me where I get my hair done and what the technique is called. Well, I go to Salon Benjamin and my colorist is Deanna and cut artist is the man himself, Benjamin. I don’t say the technique to my colorist anymore because she knows what I want, but for all of you that ask, tell them you want the ombre look in the balayage technique.view more
I’m not one to wear head to toe of the same print, but when I saw this particular print I knew it be a killer print to wear together.

Take it away Andri…
Today I wanted to give some general advice on choosing the suppliers for your wedding day. It really is crucial that in addition to liking their portfolio of work, you also like them on a personal level. More than anything, you need to have a team around you who you can trust.
Israeli designer, Inbal Dror, has taken the wedding world (and Pinterest) by storm with her sexy, sultry, beautiful wedding dress designs.
And it’s no secret that I’m a BIG fan. See my my previous features on Inbal Dror’s 2011 collection and her 2012 wedding dress collection.
So today I’m absolutely thrilled to be sharing an exciting first look at Inbal Dror’s 2013 wedding dress collection with you all!
And judging by the amount of emails I receive asking where to find Inbal Dror dresses, lots of brides will be thrilled to hear they are now available in many more countries around the world – including the USA.
(More on where to buy Inbal Dror wedding dresses at the bottom of this post. As well as my own personal thoughts & experience with the dresses.)

Inbal Dror Paris 2013 Collection

For the 2013 collection, Inbal Dror surpassed herself by taking previously designed styles in 2011 and 2012 and giving them an extra zest, using new French Laces, Tulles, Pearls and Swarovsky Stones.
The 2013 collection brings vintage designs back to life yet infuses a modern, fashion V-Neck Prom Dresses uk forward vibe with daring necklines, low cut backs and risque, sheer fabrics.view more

Including some of my favourite UK wedding blogs!


Pinterest is an online tool for collecting and organizing the things you love.
It appeals to the 8 year old me, who spent a summer meticulously organising her sticker collection. One page for My Little Pony stickers, another one for Thunder Cats and a double page spread for sparkly stickers. I could go on.
It’s a virtual pin board / scrap book for creators, curators and collectors to inspire and be inspired.
I first discovered Pinterest back in 2011 and, as a lover of beautiful imagery, the outcome was inevitable.
It was love at first click.view more
2 years, 105 boards, 9,000 pins & 3.4 million followers later, I’m still just as enamoured with Pinterest.

Introducing RVA's Fashion Photographers: Matt Licari

Integrity – Suicide Black Snake (a389/Magic Bullet Records)
Anybody who's followed Integrity over the course of their quarter-century run should be less surprised by the variations the band has undertaken than by the extent to which they've been able to adhere to a single core sound despite a revolving door lineup. There are variations between albums, most of them subtle (if Integ2000 isn't factored into the equation, which is probably better for everybody – though I may be in the minority by suggesting that even what's largely considered their worst album is still better than most entries into their genre). However, their inclination to nudge their sound in a variety of directions, gradually augmenting their tough metallic hardcore with elements of old Japanese crust, hushed neo-folk, and power electronics elements, not only separated them from their metalcore followers, but was as much an integral part of their sound as the heavy pummeling for which they're best known.view more
