Hello Lovelies,

This week, my thoughts turned to destination weddings. Oh how I long to be on an exotic island right now without a chunky knit in sight…mainly because our flat is absolutely FREEZING!

Having attended my best friend's wedding in Thailand earlier this year, I know how difficult it is to stay looking good in the heat. By the end of all the dancing at their reception I was a very sexy combination of sweaty and shiny with my hair slicked to my face and neck!

So I thought this video tutorial was brilliant for all you destination brides out there who'd like to avoid the ‘make up sliding off your face' look…

The Sandals website is well worth a look if you're thinking of a destination wedding. They've teamed up with wedding goddess Martha Stewart to create some truly gorgeous wedding themes and packages.

Have a great weekend everyone! Got any spooky shenanigans planned for Halloween?!
