Apart from the happy couple, the guests who stood out to me were Earl Spencer's three daughters; Kitty (20), and twins Eliza and Katya (18) shown in the picture above. All three of them are stunning and represent an altogether more modern side to the royal family. They are of course the nieces of the late Princess Diana. Earl Spencer (Diana's brother) married model, Catherine Victoria Lockwood and this may explain where the three girls got their stunning looks! They all now live in Cape Town, South Africa following their parent's divorce and I reckon they all looked amazing at the wedding this morning.
Kitty Spencer donned the cover of society bible, Tatler Magazine in April 2009 following her mother's cover appearance 19 years previously. It really is a sign of the times to see members of royalty posing in magazines and maybe it's a sign that some of them are ready to be more open about their lives and who they are. I guess it's the age of celebrity but I just hope they remember to keep some things under wraps as there are many pitfalls to becoming a 'celeb'! Kitty is studying politics and psychology at the University of Cape Town and is carrying on the trend of getting with 'commoners' by dating a former lifeguard/former model/surfer, no less!
I only came across this in the last few days and you guys may have known about this for ages BUT just in case you hadn't...
Temptalia have a brilliant section on their website called the Make Up Dupe List where you can type in a particular product and find something similar or almost identical! It evens colour-rates and describes the products by how close they resemble what you're looking for. Genius! So handy if a product you love has been discountued, is a little too expensive for your budget or you just can't seem to get hold of it anywhere. They add to the list all the time so keep checking for your favourites.
Their website is also fantastic and offers healthy recipes, printable exercise routines and loads more. I simply watch one of their videos before I go to the gym and then just copy it when I get there. It's a great way of trying some new work-outs and making sure your body isn't getting too used to anything. After all, the key to progress in fitness is variety and not just performing the same exercises/routines every day! I love their videos because they come across as friendly, knowledgeable and even a little goofy sometimes...which I like!
They always play great music over their workouts which really gets you in the mood to get moving. My aim is not to get super ripped like they are as that wouldn't suit my body type. Also, to be quite honest, I like having womanly curves and would miss them should they disappear! So my plan is to use their workouts to tone myself up for summer. I just wish I could work out on the beach like they do! I could go work out on Aberdeen beach but I would have to wear a wooly jumper to do so!
And lastly, I spotted these summer sandals on the Dune website recently and I'm in lurrrrve! I want them! I want them! They are £65 which I do think is a bit hefty, however my Dune sandals I bought two years ago are still going strong so maybe they could be described as a sound investment?...no?
Would they jangle when I walked and annoy the hell outta me and everyone else? Yes. Do I still want them? Yes.
