There’s something really exciting about receiving an invitation to a soiree that’s a little more upper class than normal. It immediately gives you something to look forward to and begin planning. It can be hard to know where to start when it comes to choosing what to wear, if you’re going to accept the plus one offer, and also how to have your hair on the big day. Luckily, we’ve got some fabulous tips on how to rock up in style to your next big event.

Rock Up In Style With These Fabulous Tips


Choose Your Plus One Wisely

If the invitation is allowing you to bring a plus one, make sure that the person you choose to take with you is going to suit the kind of event that it is. For example, if it’s something that’s tailored around fashion, then your partner who has no interest in it might not be the right person to take with you. Choose someone who can and will enjoy the event just as much as you will. Another thing to think about is whether taking a partner is a good idea at all, especially if you’re in a new relationship. Choose wisely so that on the day you’re not regretting your choice and can have the best time possible.

Rock Up In Style With These Fabulous Tips

One way to make an incredible first impression is by turning up to the event in style. So it might not be a red carpet event, but stepping out of a fabulous car is certainly going to turn some heads and get the conversation flowing. Head over to and see what kind of vehicle would suit the event you’re attending.

Also, it will save you from having to worry about having a few drinks while you’re there. 

Don’t Settle On The First Outfit You See

While you might have your mind set on a particular outfit to wear to your event, you should always keep an open mind and try on a few different styles to see which one you like the most. There might be a certain dress code to the event, so take someone that can give you an honest and trustworthy opinion on your outfits when you come to go shopping for the big night. Remember that looking good doesn’t necessarily have to cost the earth either!

Treat Yourself To A Salon Finished Look For The Night

Rock Up In Style With These Fabulous Tips

If you’re like many women around the world, getting ready for a night out can be stressful if your hair and make up doesn’t turn out how you had it planned. Consider treating yourself to a salon finished look for the night so that you can sit back and let the professionals do your hair and make up. It will save you getting frustrated with yourself, and also allow for some pampering time so that you look nothing but your best for the evening. Another plus side is that any photos taken on the night will show you looking amazing!

Consider these tips when it comes to your next event and truly treat yourself to an evening that you deserve!

Planning a holiday isn’t easy and this is especially the case if you plan on traveling at peak times. You may find that the whole thing is super expensive and you may even dread the thought of flying out as well. The whole thing can become too much, very quickly. So if you want to have a stress-free vacation or if you want to do everything you can to get the best result out of your trip then it helps to plan in advance.

Don’t Book The First Thing You See

It is very easy for you to book the first thing that you see. The sight of a white sandy beach with crystal clear waters can be enough to make anyone whip out their credit card, and this is especially the case if you want to treat your family to something extra special. Instead of doing something like this, you should use a comparison site so that you can compare the price of your chosen beach holiday. A lot of comparison sites have a “search adjacent days” option as well, so make sure that you click this because it could save you a small fortune. If you are going during the holidays because you have kids, be prepared to spend more, because there is a high chance that everyone else has the same idea.

Top Booking Tips when Going on Holiday with your Family

Be Careful When Plotting Your Changes

There’s nothing worse than booking a hotel, only to find that you don’t have enough money to book the flight because the prices have changed. Prices fluctuate all the time, so if you are planning a flight then make sure that you take the time to go over the total cost and the change-over that you may have to account for as well. For example, some flights may go directly to your destination but you’ll probably end up paying double for this.

This may be easier for the kids, but a change-over at another destination could save you thousands here, and it may even make it so you can book a nicer hotel as well. If you are concerned about the cost either way, then there are plenty of fast cash options that can help you out and they can even help you to take advantage of a last-minute deal as well!

Don’t Settle On One Airport

Traveling at peak times is never fun, so if you want to avoid any additional stress then consider looking into other airports. Remember that you are only going to be there for a couple of hours, and some airports may be able to offer you a cheaper overall experience. For example, smaller airports may be able to offer you a reduced parking fee and they may even be able to offer you more convenient travel options as well.

Top Booking Tips when Going on Holiday with your Family

If you are concerned about traveling to the airport with the kids for the first time then you really do have nothing to worry about. The whole thing is very easy and you can always look things up in advance so you can get an idea of what to expect.

Finding a new perfume that suits my personal style is amazing. I enjoy refreshing my scent seasonally, and even changing it up daily! According to my mood and the weather. Using a new perfume in my daily routine brings me such joy and contentment. It’s uplifting, revitalizing, and calming when the scent rises to my nostrils. I relate using a new perfume to receiving a manicure or spa day.

How To Make Perfume Last Longer

Finding a perfect or signature scent is the first step. Making the fragrance last all day is the next. After freshening up, I like to apply lotion to my skin. While still in the steamy bathroom, I then apply the scent with one spray to my neck and one spritz to my wrist. Moisturized skin holds fragrance the best. It also helps it stay on for longer periods of time. I’ve even heard of using Vaseline on the pulse points, before spraying. If I’m not using the scent directly on me, then I enjoy spraying a couple spritz’ of perfume into the air. Right before walking into it. This creates a lighter scent that embodies the hair and outfit. It is less overwhelming. A favorite of those who prefer a delicate, barely-there fragrance.

Acca Kappa Review

I came across Acca Kappa on Instagram and adore their innovative and chic concept. Acca Kappa is known for their signature Unisex Parfum. The scent is White Moss. Created with great care using precious Lavender and Juniper essential oils. For men and women. Top notes of Lemon, Bergamot, Juniper, Citrus Accord, heart notes of Aldehyde Notes, Cardamom, Lavender, Sweet Woods and base notes of White Musk, Amber Accord, Cedar wood and Musks. This scent is definitely a new favorite of mine! It’s classic, clean, and bright. The packaging is crisp, with a black and silver bottle. I was lucky enough to receive a smaller version of the Tilia Cordata Parfum for Women and the Wisteria Parfum for Women as well.

The Tilia Cordata is a floral scent perfect for spring and summer. It’s ultra feminine. The Wisteria Parfum is a fresher scent, which is feminine as well. But comparatively similar to a powdery, right-out-of-the-shower fragrance. Acca Kappa describes the Tilia as “A floral citrusy fragrance with top notes of Bergamot, Lemon, Petit Grain, Neroli, heart notes of Linden Blossom, Magnolia, Jasmine, Rose and base notes of Cedarwood, Amber, Tonka Bean and White Musk.” While the Wisteria Parfum is listed as “A warm and enchanting Eau de Parfum with refined top notes of Lemon, Bergamot, Exotic Fruits and Melon. Heart notes of Wisteria, White Lily, Magnolia, Lilac and base notes of Heliotrope, Amber, Vanilla, Musk & Sandalwood.” Additionally, these scents are perfect for layering. For example, using the White Moss with a more feminine scent, such as the Tilia or Wisteria.

Overall, I am loving Acca Kappa. The perfumes are fresh, clean, and delightful. I am so impressed with this brand. I’ve also received several compliments in just two days of wearing their scents.

If you have a small space and are concerned with the size of it, don’t fret! There are so many interior design techniques that can help your room or house appear larger than it actually is. Here are some of my favorites:

  1. Add a trim to the ceiling, doors, and outlines of the room. This adds structure to the space, creating a larger atmosphere. I prefer white trim on a lighter base color. Or adding a pop of color to a light base, etc. Something that will contrast the different shades. Trim at the top of the ceiling draws the eye upwards.
  2. Keep it light. Using light and bright colors on your walls will open up the space. You know how white clothing makes people look bigger? And dark clothing (think – black) makes people look smaller? Well, it’s the same thing with interior design! Thank you color theory. Keeping things light and using colors like white, light beige, egg, bone, pastels, make the room look bigger.
  3. Use mirrors whenever possible. This create depth within a space. Giving more light and reflective surfaces creates almost a double vision. I especially love a mirror at the end of a long hallway, on the backside wall of a dining table, and above a fireplace. Placing the mirror at the end of the space, adjacent to it’s opening, is where the reflect will give the most help.
  4. Use multi-purpose shelving and drawers. Such as an ottoman with a spacious center, drawers in the coffee table, drawers in the bed frame, or a fold out desk.

Shop Interior Pieces



  1. Statement furniture. Choose one or two pieces, maybe a large couch and coffee table, to fill the room. This creates less clutter and keeps everything looking clean. As compared to one couch, two chairs, one ottoman, one coffee table…. you get the idea.
  2. Stripes! Stripes are an obvious choice. You can put them on the floor with a rug elongating the room. Or put delicate striping on the walls. The color choice, boldness, and contrast type is your decision. But stripes can immediately draw the eye upwards. With vertical stripes. Or widen a room with horizontal stripes.
  3. Furniture with exposed legs. This gives the room, and furniture more space. Creating an openness underneath it, makes the overall atmosphere fresher.
