R&R Experience

Ruth originally from South America, has trained in luxury salons in France and now owns her dream salon here in Bristol and a few weeks ago I was invited to R&R Experience to check it out.

It is a compact but well decorated and calming haven just off the bustling streets of Gloucester Road. 
When I visited I was in the midst of all my uni work so it was a welcome escape. 
Ruth and her husband Roland were so welcoming, and made the whole experience very enjoyable and relaxing.  
I received a very quick under arm wax, which unlike many, Ruth was a perfectionist and managed to pluck every hair out! We then moved onto the very relaxing massage, asking me where I had problem areas, and I had a choice of orange or lavender essential oils, I chose orange as lavender usually gives me quite a headache. It was one of the best massages I've ever had and I can't wait to go back and book another. 
And I recommend you do to!

I am wearing; Trousers, Top, Bag, Hat and Scarf: Charity Shop | Shoes: New Look | Glasses: c/o Firmoo
Paul is wearing; Trousers, Belt and Shirt: Carhartt | Braces. Bow Tie and Shoes: Charity Shop

At the beginning of August we attended Paul's Aunt's wedding in Devon. It was a 50's regatta themed in case you hadn't guessed! I was so excited, so much so I think I went charity shopping every weekend since we were sent the invitation. 
Originally I was going to wear a 1950's style dress however after trawling through every charity shop I could think of in Bristol I gave up and decided to have a re-think. 
I found these polka dot wide leg trousers in a local charity shop, which are a dream to wear, so forgiving... especially at an event where you are eating an drinking a fair amount! Paired with a classic black velvet top, some chunky black shoes, and a pop of red to modernise the look.
The hat was a very last minute outfit add-on which Paul's mum Claire gave me the morning of the wedding. (she didn't even know I was wearing polka dots!)
Emma, the bride had a beautifully customised dress, she is always one for a vibrant colour and the blue fringe just worked so well! 
 It was such a glorious chilled out day, filled with family, sun and wonderful cakes! I can't wait till the next wedding!
