The Joys of Springtime

A year ago I came up with an idea of creating an Easter inspired photo shoot, so that I could create some lovely inspiration for our spring brides. We were lucky to be involved in a fabulous wedding fayre at Keythorpe Manor around that time which was the perfect location for our shoot, and it was hosted by our great friends at Save The Date Magazine.

This beautiful photo shoot which was all about spring and nature in a stunning location couldn’t have gone any better…. Here are a few pictures to get us started.

My brief was simple…. Springtime, Easter, Furry friends and colours which are not typical of springtime and texture. Wood, lace, feathers and eggs of course! I wanted to show that you can use different colours, tones and textures if you think out the box because they really work. I really love all the spring colours that are around at this time of year but you can still create a great style using alternatives. Take a peek and let me know what you think.

What the experts say – Tina Donovan @ The Progressive Hair Company

So after starting the feature ‘what the experts say’ I am pleased to be writing this next post as it’s great inside knowledge about the best way to look after your luscious locks!

Tina Donovan @ The Progressive Hair Company Top Hair Tips

Let’s take a look how we can look after our hair that little bit better, take it away Tina…..

To look after your hair between salon visits, use a good professional shampoo and conditioner. Quality products mean you can use less product as they are concentrated within the bottle so adding a little water to your shampoo will go a long way. Look out for products with up filters giving you that added bit of protection whatever the weather.

Give your hair an extra treat once a week by investing in a moisturising Masque. This will work deeper in to your cuticle giving your hair moisture and shine, just what your hair deserves. Wrap in a towel and leave for 5-10 minutes whilst soaking in the bath, a good excuse for a little me time!

Detangling hair! This is usually when we mistreat our hair using a brush or, pulling and over and stretching the hair. SLOW down, use either a wide tooth comb or a tangle teaser, these won’t stretch and pull your locks. Section hair into 3, start combing mid length to ends first then work your way from the root to ends. This will keep tangles to a minimum, if needed use a leave in detangle spray to give you a faster tangle free hair.

Bettie Lottie’s Top Beauty Tips

Looking after yourself from the outside is just as important as the inside” Bettie Lottie. Take it away Beth….

Even though the skies are becoming grey the sunlight can still damage your skin. Use a moisturiser or foundation with an SPF factor so you are always protected.

Always remove your make up properly (even after a night on the tiles) and use a night cream. These help to replenish and restore the skin.

Look after your feet. These are vital and we need them for dancing! Regular pedicures help with day to day aliments like hard skin but with anything untoward, go and see a chiropodist as it’ll only get worse.
