    The LG Sapience Top Loader with Smart Inverter washing machine – a review

I know I haven’t posted anything proper about the wedding yet (although you can get a sneak peek on Instagram here), but that will come, I promise! I’m going to go right ahead and put the cart before the horse, and share with you about one of our best wedding gifts – a brand-spanking-new Sapience Top Loader with Smart Inverter washing machine from LG for me to review!

    Glammed up in a boudoir shoot with Miss Hepburn – and get 50% off your booking!

    I recently had the sublime pleasure of doing a boudoir photo shoot with Miss Hepburn Photography. I’m not gonna lie, the prospect of taking my kit off for a camera had me feeling very nervous and vulnerable. Did I really want to expose all those lumps and bumps and wibbly bits that I’m trying to learn to love to the scrutiny of a camera? What if I just looked like a bathing hippopotamus, or beached whale? When the shoot day came, I immediately took a liking to Kylie – aka Miss Hepburn – who is charming and relaxed, and immediately puts you at ease. And then her partner in crime,…
