HOW-TO make your own PHOTOBOOTH PROPS #WeddingFever


With the wedding just around the corner (3 DAYS AND COUNTING PEOPLE), admittedly I haven't been the MOST organised of bride-to-be's. However, I have made time to get my DIY-on and embrace some wedding-craft to save on the pennies! Setting about making your own photobooth backdrop and props isn't always easy, but it's definitely do-able! Here's my how-to on how to make your own, personalised photobooth props! 


WHAT YOU'LL NEED: 
Dowel (available from the likes of Homebase & B&Q)
Multi-coloured & textured foam sheets (available from Tesco's and The Range) 
Black & gold markers
Sellotape
A cardboard box (to stand your props in)
Scissors
A ruler

HOW-TO:
1. Start by cutting out and decorating your foam prop-toppers (as it were) making sure they're neat. 
2. Cut up your dowel into equal lengths (about 25cm long each) 
3. Tape your foam prop-toppers to the dowel (see image below)
4. Make sure all is secure and they're not going to fly off mid-way through a photograph and surprise a guest. 
5. Cover your cardboard box in wrapping paper. 
6. Pierce holes in your cardboard box to prop your props up in!

#Dropit - I will be!


So, picture this: you're going shopping (and I'm not talking floaty, drifting from-store-to-store shopping, I'm talking military must-find-this-and-this-shopping-list shopping), but afterwards you're meeting the girls for cocktails (Sex and the City-roof-top-style, like the one where Carrie wears soft grey hot pants and a halterneck). Question: do you A: arrive with millions of shopping bags and red rings up your arms from carrying so much sartorial weight, or B: use the brand-spanking new hands-free (yes hands-free) revolutionary shopping service that's coming to Regent Street? I say B. On Sunday 19th July, Regent Street, London, embraces Dropit, a cool, new shopping service that offers same-day delivery from store to your door (at an appropriate time of your choice). Visitors to the Dropit event space this Sunday can also find hot new DJ talent DJ Jade performing, impromptu dance performances and fabulous photo opportunities to discover and explore - and all without your arms laden with bags. 



So, how do you Dropit?
The brand explains...

'Shop
Use the Dropit mobile app to see which of your favourite shops offers the service, helping you to plan your shopping route. Buy up big and then leave your shopping either in store or at one of the Dropit points located along Regent Street. Your bags will then be delivered to your home, hotel or office at a time convenient for you. 

Drop
Stop by one of the Dropit points or request the service in-store. Then set up your own profile via the app, simply fill in your home or hotel information and purchase Dropit credits so you can save time while enjoying a new bag-free shopping experience. Users can choose to purchase a single drop, a day pass or a three-day pass.

Track
Track your bags using the app or select to receive status updates of your delivery via push notifications and email.

Unpack
Your bags are delivered to your home or hotel on the same-day or the following evening depending on what suits your shopping style

Dropit. You’ve got to hand it to us.'

Katy Perry X H&M #HolidayCampaign2015


BREAKING FASHION NEWS: High-street brand, H&M really know how to cause a stir in the industry, and their latest campaign is no let down. The brand is pleased to announce that pop and style icon Katy Perry will star in their 2015 Holiday Campaign which celebrates this season's signature H&M summer style for the holidays. 

'"H&M was one of the places where I first began cultivating my personal style. I have continued to love integrating H&M pieces into my wardrobe throughout the years. One of the reasons I love the holidays is being able to dress cozy and cute, which H&M executes  so well for every budget. I can’t wait for you to see the world we created with Jonas Åkerlund and Dan Jackson," says Katy Perry.'

'"We are so thrilled that Katy Perry will star in our campaign this holiday season. We love everything about  Katy,  from  her  incredible  talent  and  energy  to  her  playful  sense  of  personal  style,"  says Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M's Head of Design.'
