My Bridal Beauty Regime

6 months before the wedding I started using Vi Derm's skin products, bought at Montrose Clinic, this product made my skin healthy and radiant.

3 days before the wedding, I went for my mani- and pedicure, waxing and lashes.
2 days before the wedding I went for a hair mask and touch up, thereafter FakeBake tanning spray (it takes 2 day for the colour to set)
1 day before the wedding I Iced our wedding cake and relaxed with my bridesmaids.
