Fashion at the Emmys

I love it the day after a big awards ceremony, when all the social media newsfeeds are filled with pictures of the gorgeous dresses from the night before. The Emmys a few days ago were no exception; gone were hours of productivity as I ooh-ed and ahh-ed over the range of designs showcased at the awards' 66th year.

I thought I'd share with you my five favourite dresses from the evening (although it was SO difficult to choose just five)...

Barry M Matte Nail Paint in Copacabana

Good morning, Maggie May readers! (Just... 10 minutes before midday!)

A quick beauty post for you all today. I tweeted a pic of my nails last week and shared it with my Instagram followers, and it went down a treat. I'm not surprised; it was my yummy new nail enamel from King of Nail Polish, Barry M.

You can have a read of it here on the Avon Connects website. It would be great to see some comments and feedback!

Included in the post are nail wraps, perfume, bronzer and lip gloss... All summer essentials, I'm sure you'll agree!

Let me know what you all think.

High Street Bridesmaid Dresses

I love weddings.

I always have done! I get excited when someone's wedding pics appear on my Facebook newsfeed, so I can scroll through and look at the dresses, the flowers, the cake. I'm pretty sure I've watched every episode of Four Weddings, and I love chatting with my friends about wedding themes, music and photography. Why? I don't know. I just do...

I was really pleased that my first wedding related post on The Secret Life of Maggie May was well received by readers - "Should bridesmaids have to pay for their dresses?" was a controversial topic choice, but that's what made it so fun to discuss!

So I'm back with my wedding hat on, here this afternoon to show you my favourite high street bridesmaid dresses - I thought this linked in well with my previous topic! There really are some gorgeous designs out there in some of our most loved shops; I hope you like the ones I have picked out today.
