Wedding Fayre – Millennium Gallery: Sheffield.

Last weekend I visited my first Wedding Fayre in Sheffield at the Millennium Gallery. It was so adorable and I even shed a little tear! I can’t believe I hadn’t been to one before as I was in my element, I loved absolutely everything in the room! It has actually opened my eyes to something different I could potentially get involved in; I would love the job of planning weddings on a daily basis. 

I would highly recommend visiting a Wedding Fayre if you are planning your wedding as it had absolutely everything on offer, whether it be just for ideas or to secure something special for your wedding day. I also learnt so much from speaking to so many different people. It is a great way to gather information, get contacts and understand everything that is needed to be planned for a wedding. 
There were lots of different unique stalls on offer which stood out to me:

PHOTOGRAPHY: There were quite a few different stalls dedicated to photography companies who all had their own little unique style. It was interesting seeing all the different types of photos on display and also finding out how important it is to get to know your photographer personally and to have a good relationship with them so you can create the best photos possible for you. This was the best part of the day for me, I love photography and I loved talking to all the professional photographers. This is something I would love to do myself in the future. 

FLOWERS: One company called ‘thebloomboxcompany’ introduced us to the best idea! They had Fake Flowers on offer that came in a little box. They were absolutely beautiful! I’ve always thought that you spend so much money on flowers for them to die in a week or so, but these you get to keep forever!! They seemed to be so popular and are something I would definitely think about when I get married.

PHOTO BOOTHS: There was one photo booth at the event which offered your typical comical shot but there was one very unusual item on offer too. It was a giant mirror that took group photos; an interactive mirror which printed out photo booth like photos!. It was amazing! You could check how you looked before the picture was taken so I think this is a fantastic idea. I’m sure this would go down a storm at a wedding!

FAVOURS: One particular favour stall stood out to us which was offering little lip balms and lip scrubs. I loved it, a really cute idea which was something everyone could use too. I even bought one as a sample and it makes my lips feel amazing. I love supporting small companies. 

FLASHY LIGHTS: These seem to be the ‘in’ thing at weddings at the moment. There were a few companies which offered big lettering that lights up and sparkly lights for the dance floor and walls. These are an added bonus to a wedding in my opinion but they did look beautiful on the photos. 

There were also many stalls offering decorations with loads of different themes, lots of cars you can hire, cakes in all different shapes and sizes and companies that make personalised rings. It was a really great event that I thoroughly enjoyed! I can’t wait to go to my next one with my friends.. 

Have you been to any wedding fayres recently? I’d love to know of any new and unique things you found! Let me know below.. 

If you haven’t been to a wedding Fayre and you are getting married soon, go to one near you as soon as you can; You will leave feeling inspired and incredibly happy, I can promise you that!

Being happy never goes out of style.

I am a massive lover of all social media, regrettably I spend a lot of my time reading through Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and this week everyone seems to be on a real downer! I personally think it’s because it’s the end of January; there’s not much is going on, it’s miserable weather and everyone is waiting for pay day to come round as they are all scraping by this month, after the festivities. It’s what every January seems to be like! So I thought I would try and share some of my positive thinking in hope it can help some people out ☺️ this weeks Sunday quote is.. 

‘Being happy never goes out of style’ – Perfect right?!

I found this quote on Pinterest earlier this week and loved it. I instantly shared it on my Instagram as I couldn’t think of anything more true! One of my new year resolutions this year is to try and think positive about every situation thrown my way, in hope that I will be a much happier and positive person. 

I learnt at the end of last year that being happy is really a choice. We may not think it but we can choose how we react to a certain situation. Yes sometimes awful things happen, but it is important to try your best to look on the positive side of what’s happened. It will help you to be happier and eventually help you through what’s gone wrong. 

It is SO important to be happy. To be happy in what you are doing, happy with the people around you, just generally happy with yourself is a really great gift. And guess what, being happy never goes out of style! Everyone loves a happy person, everyone wants to be around a person that is happy, well I reckon the majority of people do! I always enjoy a happy persons company, happiness always spreads too which I love. 

Let’s try our hardest to be happy this week. Make sure everything we do is positive and enjoy everything that we do! 

Have a great week..

My New Favourite Exercise: Clubbercise.

I have always hated the gym. I have never found any enjoyment out of it. I used to have to force myself to go so I think that may be the main reason why I never saw any results from the many times I have tried to join a gym! Most people join gyms in January but I actually cancelled my membership this January as I had been wasting my money for the last 4 months of 2016. I knew I wasn’t going to go as I really came to hate going so I thought I needed to start looking for something else. A way of exercising that can be fun too..

People say that in order to lose weight you don’t necessarily need to do exercise and that you can lose weight by simply changing your diet. However, I personally felt it was important to incorporate some exercise into my routine, to help boost my weight loss. I also wanted to use exercise as a new hobby and to meet new people.

At the end of December last year a friend of mine introduced me to ‘Clubbercise‘ and I haven’t looked back since! I have attended classes once a week for the past 4 weeks and I absolutely love it. I actually look forward to it coming around each week, and I never would have thought I would enjoy doing exercise! 

What is Clubbercise you may ask?! It seems to be the new craze, there seems to be groups popping up everywhere. The best way to describe it is just like Zumba but..  YOU HAVE GLOWSTICKS AND ITS IN THE DARK! Basically you get to dance around to fast paced routines in the dark with loads of flashing lights and your very own multi- flash GLOWSTICKS! 

It’s A.MAZE.ING. I currently go to a place in Sheffield but if you search ‘clubbercise – and then your town/city’, on Facebook, loads of different classes come up. Here’s mine if you want to have a look.. https://m.facebook.com/jackie0906/ There’s a few videos on there too that show you what it’s all about. 

I highly recommend giving it a go if there is a class near you. I am someone that never goes red when I exercise but this makes me look like a tomato! And I ache for DAYS after too, so it must be doing something! It is so much fun and definitely works; I’m already seeing results only 4 weeks in. 

Who doesn’t want to dance around in the dark with flashing lights and lose weight/tone at the same time?! Go and try a class ASAP! Let me know if you give it a go.

Bye for now,
