Pink hair? Check! White dress with a black sash? Check! Amazing half sleeve tattoo? – Well not quite but I’m getting there soon… Methinks the gorgeous Miss Lily Blackout and myself could actually be the same person on different sides of the globe. She bought her dress from David’s Bridal but customised it herself to make it more ‘her’.
On a morning of procrastination (or could it have been an evening? I loose track) I decided to give this formspring thing a go. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s basically a new social networking site where you sign up and randoms (or in my case my lovely readers and fans) can ask me anything! I’m usually aghast at such self indulgence but I’ve actually really loved answering your burning questions – whether they be about Rock n Roll Bride, my personal life (oh yes), the potential of babies (arrgh!), blogging or about having pink hair! I
‘ve loved the questions so much in fact that I wanted to share some of my favourites here. If you want to ‘Ask Me Anything’ then shoot on over to formspring and question away, I will try and answer as many as I can. and if you like I’ll do another addition of my favourite questions again soon. So, what do ya wanna know?
♥ A lot of people seemed fascinated by my fuchsia locks – which is weird to me as having pink hair seems positively normal to me now. However, I aim to please…
How long have you been coloring your hair pink?
I first dyed my hair when I left school at 16 and went to college. I dabbled with a number of colours between then about 18 but I was always pink at heart and went back pink after our wedding in April 2008.
The Cimbo Limbo posts continue with part deux of the grand review of 2009. Brace yourselves for the July to December extravaganza people!
♥ Jenny & Johnny were way to stylish and way to cool to exclude from this list. If I had a face like hers I’d certainly be rocking the girl-hawk hair do. A Ring bearing ninja, the motorbike portraits and the tattoo-inspired illustration guestbook all add to the mad style
As is customary at this time of year, I wanted to take some time to look back over the last 12 months and share with you some of my most favourite weddings, photo shoots and features. I think you’ll be hard pushed to not find something that makes you go ‘ooooh’ amongst this lot. Enjoy a-reminiscing! I’ll be back tomorrow with part 2 (there’s too much to narrow it down to just one post!) I’m also taking this slow blog-time (I like to refer to it as ‘Crimbo Limbo’ (!) to ponder my ideas and plans for Rock n Roll Bride in 2010. I’ll try and share my musings for the year ahead with you soon and would love for you to let me know what you think. It’s all about you dear reader after all…
♥ 2009 started off with a bang, with this ridiculously fabulous ‘Chicken Man and the Naked Chick’ shoot and wedding. If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing this before, you certainly won’t be disappointed
Summer & Christopher’s wedding took place in July in a cemetery/mausoleum where the bride’s mother works at their beautiful 1920’s era chapel – certainly made for some awesome shots huh!? Summer told me:
“It didn’t bother us that the chapel had a mausoleum inside of it. It’s not that we were being purposely macabre, but we both have an understanding of the cycle of life, and felt that it would be beautiful, appropriate, and romantic, to have our wedding in a place which encompassed beauty and history. It was also a nice tribute to my mom, who brought me up with the understanding that death is just another part of life”
Ooooh I’m pretty sure the internet has been oozing awesomeness just so I could include it all in my Thursday Treats this week! Behold this special bumper issue of tastiness – I couldn’t leave anything out. Here are some of this week’s yummiest morsels…
