Thursday Treats – 27th May 2010

Credit: via Love Shot (I heart this tumblr btw!)

So this week has been a pretty ace one. Firstly I fell in love…with the new Topshop make up range. Yes I am such a girl but the Bee’s Knees nail varnish and Coral lip polish are to die for. I’m going shopping later. I might have to make a few more purchases. It’s cheap, it’s gorgeous and it may even be a rival for the beloved Mac…shocking!

In less superficial news, on Monday I finally got to meet UK photographer Steve Gerrard who was down in London for an engagement shoot and on Tuesday I headed to The White Gallery event to meet a whole host of amazing British bridal designers and industry peeps. I can’t wait to share my report with you and for you to see what I got up to! I also rekindled my love of music this week, mainly after talking about the subject with my tattoo artist (and no, I’m not sharing the results yet – it’s not finished!) and with Steve, who as well as being a hugely popular wedding photographer, also does a lot of music photography. Being the Rock n Roll Bride and all, people always ask me what kind of music I’m into, and while as a teenager I was hugely into my rock/metal music, in the last few years I guess it’s fallen to the wayside – what with being busy and generally not being crazy about the stuff I hear on the radio. I kind of forgot about how awesome music is! That probably sounds very weird to  a lot of you huh?! Anyway, I decided to give some of my old albums and spin..and omg Deftones, Rage, Nirvana, Hole, Marylin Manson, My Ruin, System of a Down…where have you been these past few years?! I’ve missed you! 

Now please excuse me while I got rock out some more and you get your teeth stuck into this bunch of treats…

♥ And finally…a pretty interesting (and hilarious) debate started last night as a direct result of a post I put up about blog sponsorship/advertising and companies basically wanting something for nothing. If you’ve got time on your hands and you like a good fight (!) be sure to check it out. The comments are priceless! And a BIG thank you to everyone who stood up for me and loves the site. I wouldn’t be here without you!

Also thanks to Macy for pointing me in the direction of Penelope Trunk. She has some interesting (and also hilarious – the word of the day) things to say in her ‘How to Blog’ section. My favourite is ‘How to be a millionaire from your blog’…and it’s not in the way you think

So I hired her as my color consultant. Well, she actually said she’d do it for free.  But I would have paid her. And this will be part of my webinar: It’s not really blogging that makes you millions. It’s doing work for free that makes you millions. And I’ll tell how to decide what to do.”
