Best fake tans

Here at the Vows and Venues Magazine we have tried and tested different types of fake tans. We know choosing the right tan to suit you can be a tricky task which is why we have compiled our honest opinions on a variety of what we think are the best fake tans currently on the market from gradual creams, 1 hour development to overnight. The tans have been tested on a range of skin types and age groups to hopefully take a little stress away from the build up to your wedding day.

Innovative software offers newlyweds stylish wedding album without breaking the bank

We all know weddings can be expensive.

After saving every spare penny for months or years on end you finally breathe a sigh of relief after the big day, safe in the knowledge that you won’t have to fork out any more cash.

However, this is not always the case. From paying off any lingering accounts, to sending out thank you cards, the little costs continue to mount up.

Want smoother, plumper and younger looking skin for your wedding? Read my recent trial of BeautyColl....

Brides are under so much pressure to look 'perfect' on their wedding days, and it's hard after the months of planning, sleepless nights hoping everything will go smoothly on the day, and then the extra stress of looking perfect can take it's toll.

I recently trialled a product, the Beautycoll 12,000mg Collagen Drink which can be found at,  in the hope that it would give me that 'glowing' look and make my skin look nicer, instead of being dull and tired looking.

This drink increases collagen levels, which in turn makes your skin look smoother, and firmer.

Black Raspberry and Vanilla Bath Oil from Savon Claire

Black Raspberry and Vanilla Bath Oil from Savon Claire

Recently I have been lucky enough to try out some lovely products from Savon Claire. My first impression was that Claire, who runs the business, is great at communicating and really tries to personalise your order for you. Upon receiving the products there is certainly a personal touch and special feel to them.

On opening my package of goodies, each product was beautifully wrapped, in either cute little boxes or bags.

My favourite product was the Black Raspberry and Vanilla Bath Oil. Smells divine, and leaves your skin very soft. I found that unlike other bath oils it didn't feel greasy, and that my skin really benefitted from using it. So much so, I didn't even feel the need for moisturiser!
