Sunday Snapshot – Number One

A new weekly update where we share what we’ve been loving and what we’ve been up to.

Lusting over the Katya Katya Shehurina Candy Shop Collection…

…One of our favourite bridal designers (we were lucky enough to wear pieces from her Autumn/Winter 2017/18 RTW collection to the UK Blog Awards 2017 see here) has a bright and colourful collection out now that draws inspiration from iconic sweet treats.  We love the dresses and think they’d be a great option for bridesmaids and wedding guests. The Bounty is a firm fave with its feminine floral decorative Italian lace, finely scalloped V-neck and butterfly cap sleeves. Forks in the skirt allow movement and freedom, whilst the Sash clinches in the waist to finish (we have another post on blue bridesmaid dresses here).

Mentally Planning A Hen Do ..

..As soon as the sun comes out the world starts stirring cocktails with Flamingo Straws,  jumping onto flamingo shaped pool inflatables and wearing flamingo print dresses (have you seen this one!).  Summer is also a busy time for friends and bridesmaids to busy themselves organising hen dos.  Never an easy task as you want to pull off the perfect balance of class vs tacky.   We love this, ‘Let’s Flamingle’ banner from the Letteroom available from as a fun (but stylish), on trend party venue decoration.

Having Multiple Orgasms…

… Have you ever seen such a click-bait title! (#sorrynotsorry).  I’ve written a review on the Nars Orgasm Powder Blush here and I make no secret of my love for it.  ASOS now have an exclusive Nars Orgasm Set* that includes the powder blush, the multiple (a cream product for lips, cheeks and eyes) and the illuminator (a liquid highlight for face and body). You may have seen my excitement as I opened the package on Instagram Stories (if you’re not following us on Instagram then please do, @whisperandblush).  This would make a fab gift for bridesmaids or the bride as they get ready on the morning of the wedding, or as a gift for yourself quite frankly if you’re after a new blusher.
