We are currently in the 5th OR 6th wk of lockdown , who knows? it’s hard to even keep track of the days never mind wks, anyway i have been trying to keep myself work focused and not lose my drive, as its quite easily done while we have no work to attend. It really is a shame that a lot of my spring summer brides are having to postpone to a new date but at least they can enjoy the run up to their big day now. It has a knock on effect with all the tasting, planning and most important
I recently reached out to a local salon owner who i enjoy having facials with when i have a hour to my self (in none lockdown life). Kirsty owns ’ Luna ’ in Gresford its a beautiful , positive, moon spirited salon. Luna has the delilah cosmetics range its available to try and buy in store. I asked kirsty if i could have a play while in lockdown, We did a social distancing pass over and then i got to have a play. I knew i would fall in love with the products and i am a makeup junkie so it was only natural , but i am very fussy with how i want my make to look on my clients and i will definitely be buying some key pieces.
If you live in the chester/wrexham area i suggest visiting the salon and trying these dreamy products. I highly recommend having facials while you are a bride to be to get your skin its best so again if you are local to gresford be sure to see what they have on offer at luna. I definitely need to get booked in when lockdown is lifted.
key pieces i fell in love with and that are perfect for my brides :
Farewell cream concealer stick - so easy to apply and seamless , i cant wait wait buy !
gel line eye + brow - a perfect flick in the making
blush ‘clementine - summer’s best friend
colour intense lipstick ‘flirt’ perfect hendo colour
colour intense lipstick ‘hush’ perfect mob lip colour
colour intense lipstick ‘whisper’ for the ultimite nude tone
colour intense lipstick ’ grace’ pretty in pink bride to be
brow shape gel - great size brush and just the right amount of product on the brush at one time.
mirco fine translucent powder - a must have for my kit
The cherry on the cake with delilah cosmetics brand
- Cruelty free
- Dermatologically tested
- Paraben free
- A uk company

What a month it has been , i send my love to you all that visit this blog and i hope you are dealing with isolation well, i’ve had a lot of weddings postponed and a lot of new bookings which has kept me sane. I just never thought 2020 would turn out this way.
I have also been a busy bee with my 2 business partners creating a brand for you lovely brides to be its called Bon Bon Bride Its a modern brand for all your wedding hair accessories , being in the wedding industry for over 10years it felt right to create a brand to finish off what we love to create and that is bridal hair. So together we have sourced and hand made the most beautiful hair accessories. But the most exciting thing is we have a ‘hire it’ range so you can pay less but still look incredible.
please visit the website and shop our contemporary chic bridal hair accessories.
i’ve defiantly not blogged in a while , but if you count instagram as a blog then i defiantly have , does anyone else think social media is a bit to much right now , its so easy to take over your day and as a small business trying to be seen and generate new customers i need to be active. but i have put a reminder on my phone to try and limit my usage so if you think i am being quite on there am just trying to balance life , 2019 has been such a great year for me i’ve been kept very busy by my lovely brides ( thank you ) and i have created a space for my brides to visit for there trial. In the summer i took on a assistant to help me on wk end weddings , she is still learning (we can all never stop learning hey )and i am also training her to work along side me , her name is india and at the moment she is just helping me and watching , if you book a second artist with me for your large bridal party , its not my assistant who is booked its some one of the same skill set as my self. i may get india to write a blog for me on here so you can get to know her as well. Here’s what’s still to come for 2019….. ( along side a/w weddings )
a well deserved break!!!!!
