“I am someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love.” – Carrie Bradshaw

This post is dedicated to a very special friend, Miss Holly Burnett, whose hen party I attended last night. In just three weeks time Holly is to wed her beau, her darling Ben in Italy and I feel extremely blessed to be sharing their special day with them. You may remember Holly and Ben (and the huskies) from earlier this year when we went to visit them in Sweden and spent an incredible few days knee deep in snow; dog-sledging and sampling the delicious Swedish cuisine.

The theme of the night was Sex & the City so we all donned our heels and cocktail dresses and prepared for a night of Cosmopolitans and the obligatory arrival of the Ann Summers’ lady. For the occasion I decided to wear this beautiful mint green dress from Romwe, clashed with a hot pink clutch and nude heels. It all felt very Carrie Bradshaw. I shunned her trademark curls and opted to recreate the sleek side ponytail she sported with her Prada dress on the back of Berger’s motorbike. I plan to do a more detailed post about my new clip in hair extensions but in short, they are great! I received the Super Deluxe 180g set in Medium Blonde and was pleasantly surprised at how good a colour match they were and how luxurious the hair feels. My hair is thick, and I have a lot of it, but even I didn’t need to use all of the ten pieces in the pack and achieved my style above using just half of them. I wrapped my real hair around the ponytail to conceal the hair tie and to blend the extensions in seamlessly with my natural, much shorter hair.

Back to the hen party and the whole evening was an absolute hoot and superbly organised by Holly’s sister Sadie who, I’m excited to say, has recently taken the plunge into the great sea of blogging. It was the perfect way to celebrate Holly and all she is – a beautiful friend and very soon to be, a beautiful bride. I know you’re probably more accustomed to seeing me gush about lipstick or my latest hair colour on my blog, but this post is for Holly and everything she means to me.


Love you Holly – see you in Italy x
