Review on The Bridesmaids

Hey guys. I am back with another book review! I'm really loving this book club that Bichbox and Birchbloggers started, I haven't read a book in a good while. This review is going to be on The Bridesmaids True Tales of Love, Envy, Loyalty...And Terrible Dresses by Eimear Lynch.

When I first received this book I thought it was going to be a fiction novel from the view points of the bridesmaids in a wedding. This book is true stories and the author's own personal story of being a bridesmaid in a wedding. She intreviewed different women and men to get their stories and experiences with being in a wedding. I absoultely loved reading this book. I laughed, cried, gasped and all other emotions while reading this book. I would recommend this for anyone that is about to walk down the aisle or about to be in wedding party. My favorites stories from the book were from the men. It was very interesting to hear how a few men were "Bridesmen" and really took part in the whole experience. One guy was the "Man of Honor" for his sister and it was so sweet that he was planning everything, keeping her calm and just being a great brother. He took on a lot of stresses that the maid of honor would in a wedding party but he did an amazing job from what I read. There were so many interesting stories in this book and was just an overall great read.

I haven't had many bridesmaids experiences. I was only in 3 weddings in my life and all were family weddings. The last wedding I was in was 9 years ago. I have only been to 1 bachelorette party and a few dozen weddings and bridal showers. When it is my turn to make that trip down the aisle, I hope not to become a bridezilla at any point lol!

So that is it for my review on The Bridesmaids. Have you ever been a bridesmaid? What were your experiences with being in a wedding? Comment below and let me know!!


  1. This books sounds like it would be good! I have been a bridesmaid in 4 weddings...2 as a teen/adult. I had good experiences with no bridezillas however my own wedding was far more stressful/drama haha!

    1. It was a good read Tanya, I enjoyed it. I can imagine your own wedding being stressful with wanting everything to go right!

It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there.
