Welcome back to all our regular readers and a warm hello those of you who are new to B.LOVED, we’re excited to be back after a little end-of-year blogging break!  I spent some much-needed time off with friends and family, thankful that a tough 12 months has finally come to an end while the rest of the BLOVED team celebrated with their loved ones!  We saw in the beginning of 2016 in style, and of course couldn’t resist taking a look back at some of our favourite posts from last year in our Best of BLOVED round up for 2015.

A New Year signals so many things; a chance to start afresh, turn the page and start writing a new chapter of your life story.  It’s filled with hopes, dreams and possibilities!  We’ve got some pretty exciting plans for the months ahead, not least celebrating our five year bloggiversary in March! With 5 years as one of the top wedding blogs in the world, and almost two as a UK lifestyle blog, nominations and awards under our belts, and features both UK and International press, we’ve got plenty to celebrate!

We’re sure you’ve got some exciting plans of your own, and that’s why you’re here! We’re proud of our luxe & lovely guide, we’re dedicated to modern style, and above all inspiring women! Whatever your plans for the next 12 months, we’ve got you covered…

Urgh, I hate that phrase!!

I’m all for being happy and healthy, but we’re more about feeling beautiful, so you won’t find any New Year diet advice or excercise tips here!  On our fashion & beauty pages our favourite fashionistas will be sharing the latest trends, fashions (including plus-size fashion from the lovely Helen) as well beauty tips and product reviews to keep you looking stylish every month of the year!

They say moving house (or renovating your current one) is one of the most stressful things you can do, but I disagree! Yes, there will be arguements over Moles Breath or Cornforth White, and whether that cream carpet is really practical (no, but who cares?!), but creating your own little haven that reflects your personality is also a lot of FUN!  On our interiors pages I’ll be sharing top tips from my days as a designer, home tours, trends and inspiration for making your home the space you deserve.  And for the hostess with the most-est, we also have the best guide for entertaining, including our favourite recipes and party ideas!

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
