  2. A Guide to a Planned Elopement- An Option for Weddings rather than Postpone?

    Comment
      Eloping. When you hear the word, does it bring up fear or excitement?

In recent years though, there is a push towards elopement as a way to plan minimally, and maintain the secrecy of the wedding. If you are interested in having a semi-planned elopement, and you and your fiance are both great at...

  4. 15 Tips to Lose Weight Post Lockdown

    Comment
      Lockdown has presented a huge adjustment for all of us. Many have found that this adjustment is reflected in our waistlines! As we emerge into our new normality, with restaurants, hotels and hairdressers (thank goodness!!) , how can we motivate ourselves to have our weight return to normal as well?   If you’re like many women, you begin your diet with great enthusiasm.

  7. Tips for your Dream Wedding over 50

    Comment
        “You’re over fifty? And you’re just getting married? Is this your second marriage?”  If you’ve heard these words before, rest assured that you aren’t alone.

That way, when you’re 51, your kids are all adults navigating their lives, and you have the rest of your life to lead in whatever way you choose.    However, that’s far from reality. Many women put effort towards education and their career in their twenties and thirties, and might get around to finding the one in their forties, but aren’t in any rush to get married. If you find yourself getting married in your fifties, you’re...
