Thursday Treats – 24th Sept 2009

As you may have noticed I’ve tweeked the layout of the posts slightly this week. Now, you’ll just get one preview image for each article and if you want to see the rest you just need to click ‘read the the rest of this entry’. The idea behind it is to not only make the front page look a lot cleaner, but it means the pages will load a lot faster. My hubby/web designer was trying to make me cut down  on how many images I posted to compensate for the slow page load time – now that wasn’t gonna happen was it!? What do you think of the new style?

Apart from that don’t forget that the awesome TokyoMade contest is still open. You have until tomorrow to tell me which right if your favourite and why. Come on, you know you want it!

That’s all I really have to report around Rock n Roll Bride HQ right now..let’s see what the rest of blog land has been up to this week shall we?

♥ New York photographer Sarah Sloboda is coming to London and wants to take photos of you! She has even extended her trip and will be here until the 6th October.

Win ♥ Lissita Treasure Ring By TokyoMade!

This contest is now closed

My darlings the time has come – new contest alert woop woop!

Ever since our honeymoon in Tokyo I have been somewhat obsessed with all things Japanese – from the fashion to the food I seriously love it all. So you can imagine my delight when I discovered TokyoMade, a fantastic Tokyo-based company who design, make and ship (worldwide!) their awesome kawaii creations. After lusting and swooning a little bit more than what could be deemed as normal over their site, I spoke to the pair behind the company, Masao & Deanne, who were of course delightful! 

But even better than all this, you lucky lucky readers, the pair have donated three fantastically kitsch and faaabulous Lissita Treasure Globe Rings for a super kawaii giveaway!
