The amazing Tal Kahlon…

I have recently come across many bridal designers…there are so many talented designers out there, but I have only heard of the big names, such as ‘Vera Wang’, ‘Jenny Packham’, ‘Marchesa’,’Maggie Sottero’, ‘Ian Stuart’, ‘Justin Alexander’, ‘Pronovias’ and ‘Oscar de la Renta.  Of course their designs are beautiful and well liked by many people, but I have recently discovered a couple of stand out promising designers who really deserve a lot of credit…

designers_1_compactThe genius Israeli designer Tal Kahlon is one of those.  Having worked in New York and gained experience in bridal houses in the city, Kahlon returned home to Israel and was immediately recognized as one of the most innovative and influential Israeli bridal designers…and we can certainly see why.  Kahlon combines daring, dramatic cuts with sleek silhouettes, using opulent fabrics to create his own sophisticated style.  Have a look at some of his work- you will agree that it’s simply stunning 🙂

My blog= My life, my style…my tastes

Hi my lovelies,

So while I have been busy setting up my social media pages..I have found myself having a browse at other blogs and of course, on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest- so things are going well! So far I have set up most of the social media accounts, I just haven’t tackled Facebook as of yet but it will be soon…:)

Anyway, while I was having a look at other blogs I came across quite a lot of positive, inspired comments from some lovely people.  I did also come across a lot of negative, angry comments and feedback from what I can only describe as ‘angry, bitter, jealous individuals’ (Trolls lol)…

Was I surprised?   Not really tbh…  That is social media after all! While it has its good things, it also has its bad.

What I do want to make clear is that there are people who are going to enjoy my work, and of course there are people who won’t.  The point is…’You can’t please everyone!’

4cf0950411dfa1988e166ae94861e74a

Is it suitable for everyone?

Yes…Ever After by NLT, it is hoped, is going to be accessible and enjoyable for everyone and anyone who has an interest in ‘All things wedding’-from dating to the proposal to the big day and to a happy life ever after.  From the elderly to the young, for men and for ladies, for all the single people to the engaged to the married, for future brides and grooms, brides and brides or grooms and grooms- there will be something for all.

Is it going to be to everyone’s taste?

No, absolutely not!  That’s simply impossible… Ever After by NLT  is to my personal taste and my style! Of course, some of you will have similar tastes and enjoy all of the content on here and I really hope that you do.  However, there are going to be some who aren’t interested and that’s perfectly fine too.  I just want to note thought that it is not my tastes exclusively…When I provide reviews on hotels, or honeymoon destinations, or wedding boutiques etc they could be from close friends and their experiences.

Will I cater for other people’s tastes?

Of course.. I am happy to receive queries from people requesting a post or research regarding  different styles and tastes that are not my own personal ones.  I think this is actually something I would be excited about as exploring, researching and creating something a little different from what I’m normally used to would be challenging..so I’m totally up for it.

I am also open to receiving reviews from my followers on all things wedding, as well as, their experiences and personal thoughts.  But I will provide a post on this later in the week as I would love for you all to be involved in Ever After by NLT.

With a little help from our friends…

Ever After by NLT

Hi my lovelies,

So this is actually my first official post… 🙂 How exciting!! And I’m not gonna lie..a little daunting! I’m not an expert blogger or anywhere near! I’m just a normal girl, who had an idea and followed through…But I have to admit, I cannot wait to share my plans with you and get interacting with all of you.   But, before I start I thought it would be good for you to get to know me a little first.  Sooooo…

This huge photo (no idea how to make it smaller lol..I did try!) is of course..ME!

As you know from my main pages- I am an English teacher, I’ve been qualified since 2013 with a masters degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).  I do love teaching, but work is very limited here in Northern Ireland and I am quite a home bird, so with most positions being temporary in the meantime whilst I’m not teaching, I will be wedding blogging.

What else can I tell you?… I am 29 years old, so yes the big 3-0 is around the corner! I live a normal life..I am close to my family, I enjoy reading, listening to music and socializing with my friends like anyone really.  I love wine..like I proper love a glass of white wine or prosecco or cava or champagne.. 🙂 There is nothing better than winding down in the evenings with a glass of something.  I like to attempt to cook, but I am no expert…but I do try! 🙂  I love handbags, handbags are my thing that I like to browse at…and then end up accidentally purchasing 😉   I love travelling and visiting new places and I enjoy spending nights at hotels just to relax.  I love love love the sea… I really want to buy a sail boat like a ‘Pico’ or ‘Topper’ and just simply sail the seas lol, that’s the dream! Oh and to protect our sea life…that’s super important to me!

Most of all, I’m lucky enough to have good friends around me… I always follow the saying that a few good friends are better than a lot of fake friends 🙂

So as I want to be upfront and honest from the start- I want to share with you all that I am I am not engaged or anything like that, though I am in a relationship.  Personally, my thoughts are that this is a great place to start at with Ever After by NLT, as I am in a good position to begin right from the outset with not being engaged or married just like some of you. This way I will not only be able to share your journeys but likewise you will all be able to share my own journey step by step 🙂 Anyway, I think that’s enough about me for the meantime… and now onto the actual post!  Here goes….

first-blog-post

 

When I’m struggling with things for example, inspiration on ideas or general hints and tips about dealing with things or with other problems no matter how big or small…I try not to do it alone because it just makes me incredibly anxious.  Instead I know that I can seek out advice from my family, friends and even on the internet- literally everything is so accessible these days.  There are times where we may not want to speak with a close friend or relative, or we are just sick of hearing their advice to be honest lol ;)…so instead we power up the laptop or computer and type in our queries into Google and what do we find?

That we are not alone!!!

There are similar people going through exactly the same thing…there are even comment boxes full of people from all around the world offering their experiences and suggestions as to how to overcome these things.  These ‘online friends’ are fab…whether they are bloggers, or people who have overcome similar experiences, or people who are just genuinely friendly, we can all make use of the information online.

Here at Ever After by NLT, that’s what I hope to achieve.. I hope to become your ‘online friend’ who will help you along your journey in love and life and getting married as I will be publishing posts all about weddings…each and every detail.
