Themed Weddings : Shrek & Fiona

…because true love means never having to say you’re sorry, or you know, justifying your weird obsession with the childrens movie “Shrek”. Jersey (as in the beautiful Isle of Jersey, not the state/shore in the USA/on MTV) couple Paul and Heidi Bellas got married as Shrek and Fiona from “Shrek”.

Shrek and Fiona

The pair got the idea – and presumably the buckets of green finger paint from their son Leo.

“The essence that is Shrek represents true love, it doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like, if the love is there then that is what it is about.” said Paul.

The couple had to get special permission to get wedded in face paint. Jersey law requires couples getting married need to be identified.

I am truly happy for these two. Clearly, you have met your soulmate if you can somehow find the only other person in the world that wants to get married as “Shrek”. Just in case you were worried that these two would be ridiculed by their family and friends during the ceremony, the rest of the wedding party was dutifully dressed as fairytale characters too.

“I was standing at the altar, there were only three guests in the room and they were dressed up, as the lift opened these people started to sit down but there was one dressed as a Flinstone with big feet.”

Amazingly (sadly), this isn’t the first couple to get married as “Shrek”. In 2009, Christine and Keith England also said their wedding vows as Fiona and Shrek.

Let’s hope they live happily ever after.

Hey Poutlings!

So winter is on the way in South Africa, and we all know our winters aren’t as cold as countries overseas,but for us they pretty chilly!

My first favourite outfit for winter is the simple and elegant winter coat!

I love the winter coat because it can be worn with any outfit, and makes you look fabulous while still keeping you warm! Try buy a coats this year in bright colours and make your wardrobe colour and bright, helps make winter more enjoyable.

My second recommended winter outfit is a sexy pair of boots!

Now I love a sexy pair of heels! Cold winter days still allow for us ladies to dress up and feel fabulous! If you not a fan of heels, go for a plain flat boot.

My third winter must have is an elegant scarf!

Nothing finishes off a simple winter outfit better than an elegant scarf! My favourite is a simple pair of jeans with a simple jersey and a scarf! Simply stunning!

My fourth winter item I would suggest to put on your winter shopping list is a funky winter hat or beanie!

These are something we can have fun with in winter, wearing one to work, or out for the day – the options are endless.

My last winter must have is a comfy, warm and plain old pretty jersey!

Once we have removed our coats, we still need something to keep us warm, so what better than a light jersey, not only amazing for underneath our coats, but also to pair up with our winter jeans and scarves.

So ladies and men, use these top items of mine to help you keep warm and fabulous this winter.

Much love
