The first wedding!!

Well on Sunday, was the first of my brother’ weddings! The legal civil ceremony….the Sikh wedding will be at the end of August with a couple of other parties thrown in between!!!

The day was beautiful, the forecast rain did not arrive and was very hot in the end…at points, bit too hot!

The ceremony and the location of Pennyhill Park in Surrey were beautiful as was the bride!

It was so wonderful to see all the family together and spend time with them and friends.

The array of colours and styles of outfits were amazing. From quite simple maxi dresses to ornately decorated sarees and everything in between!!

Pre-wedding day!!

So the time has nearly arrived. All that waiting for over a year has nearly come to an end…my brother gets married tomorrow!!

So in Wednesday night, after I got my altered dress back, looked at my shoe options and realised that none went with the dress….PANIC!!
So I had my eye on a pair on eBay that I wanted for after the Sikh wedding in August.

Had to ask if they could guarantee I would get them by Friday!!
I ordered on Thursday and they arrived yesterday!! So glad.
They are gorgeous.

Well off to get hair cut this morning etc and then time to de-hairify this evening!!!!

Lemon infused water.

So …as the weather is so great and I keep telling myself I should drink more water, today I started drinking lemon infused water.
Last night before I went to bed, I filled a litre bottle with water and added half a lemon (sliced) and put it in the fridge.
This morning took it out and took it to work…
Just had my one usual cup of coffee when I got there but after that drunk the water…already cutting three other cups of tea/coffee I would have drunk in that time and the sugar that would have gone in them!!
Drinking this water can aid weight loss and is obviously good for your skin so am going to continue with it.
You can also add mint to it for taste and mints properties too…
Also read so many other benefits that go with it…
Stimulates the liver, helps digestion, cleanses your body, prevents colds and cancer too!!
So get drinking guys!

Unexpected weight loss!! Always a bonus!

Ok, so my brother is getting married this month…

As it’s a Sikh wedding, there are a few different occasions, each requiring a different outfit of course!!

So this weekend I was trying some updos, not with much luck, I hasten to add!! So I thought I would try the dress on that I would wear with that hairstyle…

Now this dress was made to measure, especially for me in the colour I wanted a few months ago now (as we have been looking for outfits for a while) and it had fit perfectly….until this weekend!!

When I tried it on it was loose!!!
Woohoo! I had been trying to lose some weight but didn’t think I had succeeded…I obviously have as the dress needs taking in!!

Well nice surprise I must say…
Will keep you updated with the latest wedding updates. Not long to go, have been waiting for ages!

I think I should try the other outfits on too now to make sure!!
