Beautiful Gifts for Grooms from Oh So Cherished

I recently had the pleasure of taking a look at the My Gorgeous Groom Journal and Gift Box from Oh So Cherished. These fab gifts for grooms are unlike anything you will find on the high street.

Renowned for quirky and beautifully designed personalised gifts, Oh So Cherished offers a huge range of items including wedding guest books and albums, personalised jewellery, wedding and thank you gifts, and unique keepsakes.

My Gorgeous Groom Journal

The My Gorgeous Groom Journal is one of the most unique wedding gifts for grooms that I have seen. By writing on the statement pages, this leather journal documents the story of your relationship past and present. Some of the statements in the journal are, ‘How we met, the way I remember it’, ‘Our funniest moment together’ and ‘If tomorrow never came, I want you to always remember’. There are also blank pages within the journal for you to add your favourite pictures, and beautiful love quotes and dittos between the pages.

My Gorgeous Groom Journal - Cover

Made from the softest genuine leather and moire silk inner and embossed with My Gorgeous Groom, the journal comes with a quality presentation box to keep it clean and safe to keep for years to come. You can also have the journal personalised with your groom’s name, a message or dates engraved on a silver nameplate to add to the front.

My Gorgeous Groom Journal - Our Beautiful Life Page

It is a truly gorgeous and personal gift to give to your groom on your wedding day, and if your hubby-to-be gets emotional you might want to include some tissues!

Oh Jack how I love thee! If you are looking for the perfect thank you gift for your best man and groomsmen I may have found just the thing! Thanks to Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select, what to gift your groomsmen is one less thing to worry about. Get into the wedding spirit (pardon the pun) and mark the occasion Jack’s way – with a personalised bottle of this one-of-a-kind flavour.

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select knows that your wedding day is as significant for the groom and his groomsmen as it is for the bride and her bridesmaid. Signature Single Barrel Select is the perfect spirit to share with friends, toasting to those once in a lifetime moments.

Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Select

“Just as one barrel rises above the rest, having met the single barrel standard – one man rises above the rest to stand beside you on your wedding day.”

Only One Out of 100 Barrels Becomes Single Barrel Select

Jack Daniel’s is perhaps one of the best known and most popular whiskeys in the world. If your best man and groomsmen are Jack Daniel’s lovers then they will really enjoy this Single Barrel Select; it’s very, very special!

Only one out of every 100 barrels is set aside to mature in the upper reaches of the Jack Daniel’s barrel houses, where dramatic temperature changes enhance both the colour and taste of the whiskey they house. Each barrel is hand-selected for its one-of-a-kind flavour, and every bottle of Single Barrel Select proudly carries its unique rick number, barrel number and bottling date.

Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Select On the Rocks

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select offers a distinctive, full-bodied taste with notes of vanilla, toasted oak and caramel. Harbouring less sweetness and more power than the original Old No.7, Single Barrel Select offers a much richer variation. With no two barrels producing the same whiskey, Jack Daniel’s really delivers a one-of-a-kind gift, perfect for the special people at your wedding.

Confetti Wands from Shropshire Petals - Three Designs

New Confetti Wands from Shropshire Petals

There is nothing better after you say “I do” than your friends and family showering you with beautiful natural petal confetti. But what about the children at your wedding? Not all confetti display options are child-friendly, and allowing them to take a handful from a pretty basket or giving them a confetti cone to hold will inevitably result in confetti on the floor before it’s time to throw. Shropshire Petals has launched the perfect solution – Confetti Wands.

Children Holding Confetti Wands from Shropshire Petals

Perfect for including your youngest guests in all the fun of the confetti throwing, Confetti Wands are just the right size for little hands to hold. Simply let the children hold them until it’s time to throw confetti, then take of the lid and let them flick out the beautiful natural petal confetti inside and watch it cascade gently over you.

Three Designs

Available in three gorgeous designs, heart, flower and star, Confetti Wands are perfect for girls and boys. Select the petals inside by pick and mixing from the wonderful array of colours and petal types on the Shropshire Petals website. Choose bold, bright colours, or match your confetti to your wedding colour scheme.

Skinny Tan Limited Edition Rose Gold 7 - Day Tanner

A Perfect Rose Gold Tan in Just Seven Days

After last week’s heat wave I thought we were set for summer… erm, where did it go? Who needs the sun anyway when we have Skinny Tan! You may have seen my previous feature on the Skinny Tan self tanning products that have taken the nation by storm. Well I am over the moon that they have launched another product, Skinny Tan Limited Edition Rose Gold 7-Day Tanner.

Rose gold is a huge thing right now. We see it everywhere; in homeware, accessories, branding and particularly wedding styling. I am a massive fan of rose gold.

Skinny Tan has pushed the boundaries with their brand new Rose Gold 7-Day Tanner, and I am totally in love with it! Who doesn’t want rose gold all over their body?

Skinny Tan Limited Edition Rose Gold 7 - Day Tanner

Since trying the Skinny Tan products for the first time last year I am hooked. I’m naturally quite pale and have tried many tanning products and always end up a terrible shade of orange, streaky and smelling of McDonald’s fries (so my husband says!). That was until I experienced Skinny Tan.

The Rose Gold 7-Day Tanner bronzes the skin with a luxe rose gold shimmer whilst a natural looking, streak-free tan develops underneath. As you apply the tan you can see exactly where you are applying it with the beautiful bronze glow, and you can instantly see a difference.

It says to leave for at least six hours (I left mine overnight) and then you simply wash it off. The shimmer washes away, leaving you with a natural and flawless tan that lasts for up to seven days.

Application

This tanner works in the same way as the other Skinny products. I used the Skinny Tan Pre Tan Primer to prep my skin. This crushed walnut shell primer removes any dry or dead skin cells, which helps to achieve a perfect finish to your tan. Note – you should always prime a few hours before you tan.
