It’s been a big week. Going to see my all time favourite movie on the outdoor silver screen (you HAVE to go!), making big plans for The Blogcademy and even bigger plans for Rock n Roll Bride… JUST YOU WAIT.

God, isn’t it really annoying when bloggers are all cryptic like that?

OH! I also released a little sneaky peek video for my new range with Crown and Glory last weekend. This collection definitely has some of my all time favourite designs in it. I can’t wait for you all to see them. Put 15th September in your diaries babes!

Phew! I told you it’s been a busy one… How has your week been?

Thursday Treats: Playing Dress Up and Getting Butterflies

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I just got back from a two night stay in London with Carly, my bestie from Uni, who I’m bridesmaid for next year. We had all manner of pre-wedding fun times, mostly drinking cocktails and DRESS SHOPPING. Oh yes!

We visited some of my favourite boutiques, Luella’s Boudoir in Wimbledon, Blackburn Bridal in Blackheath (which I’d actually never been to before, but their Claire Pettibone collection was too beautiful to skip) and finally Fur Coat No Knickers near London Bridge. Many glasses of the fizzy stuff were quaffed, and many, MANY beautiful dresses were tried on. There were definitely some stand outs, and maybe one that’s even going to be ‘the one’. We both got butterflies and couldn’t stop beaming from ear to ear so that’s a good sign, right?!

This might be the most obvious thing I’ve ever written, but MAN, I love weddings. I’m so excited to be involved in planning her big day next November, this is going to be the most fun year ever!

Have you started dress shopping? Any butterfly moments yet?

Thursday Treats: Coming Soon…

Guess what?! On Sunday it’s the lookbook photo shoot for my brand new collection with Crown and Glory! OH YES! I think that those of you that loved our first two releases are going to be pretty excited by what we have in store. I can’t wait to share it with you all.

Keep your peepers peeled to my Instagram this weekend because I’ll see if I’m allowed to sneak you a few little peeks at the new designs. Safe to say though, I think it’s my favourite collection yet!

Glitter! Rainbows! Sparkle! Oh my!

Thursday Treats: You Make My Dreams Come True

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I’ve spent the past couple of weeks in London, Berlin and Amsterdam, teaching Blogcademy workshops and exploring everything these wonderful places have to offer. It has been a pretty crazy time including two workshops in London, followed by our first mixer event, a class in Berlin, another in Amsterdam – oh and a couple of photo shoots thrown in for good measure!

I’ll be writing a full travel guide posts for Berlin and Amsterdam, as well as recap posts for all the events, but for now, I thought I’d let you in one some of the madness with this fun little video that we put together for you!

Oh Europe, you sure did show us a damn good time. Gala and Shauna left on Tuesday morning, and as much as it sucks to say goodbye, I sure am happy to be back with Gareth and my kitties. I really did miss them a lot this time round.

Here’s to staying out of airports for a couple of months…!

Come and hear me speak!

Before we crack on with the usual Thursday Treaty goodness, I’ve been invited to speak at a TON of events this year and so I wanted to give you a quick run down in case you wanted to come along to any of them!

♥ On 18th September I’m guest speaking at the Photography Farm Elements class in London all about how wedding photographers can use their blogs to get more of the clients they really want to work with.

♥ I’m so excited to be heading to Cologne, Germany in October to be the key note speaker at Hochzeitskongress, a business workshop for wedding industry professionals! 

♥ I’m also appearing at the Flourish and Prosper Wedding Academy on November 1st in London. I’ll be speaking about social media and blogging for wedding professionals.

PHEW! OK on with the show…

Thursday Treats: Greetings from Amsterdam

Hello from Holland!
After the most amazing few days in Berlin, we touched down in Amsterdam yesterday afternoon. So far we’ve really only had time to grab some supplies (browsing foreign supermarkets might just be one of my favourite past times though!) and to catch up on some work, so I am beyond excited to explore the city today and tomorrow.

This weekend we do our final European Blogcademy workshop of the year. The class is pretty packed already but if you wanted to sign up last minute, we can totally squeeze you in. We promise lots of sparkle, a killer goodie bag and two days overflowing with invaluable blogging and business education!

But for now, I’ll leave you with the internet lovelies that have kept me entertained over the past seven days.

Thursday Treats: Two Blogcademy Workshops, A Mixer & A Whirlwind Week in London!

Greetings and salutations from our AirB&B digs in North London. This week has been crazy… in the best possible way! Over the weekend Gala, Shauna and I taught our first London Blogcademy workshop, which was of course fabulous (the London babes always BRING IT!) followed by our second packed class on Tuesday and Wednesday. We had a photo booth, delicious cupcakes and treats, and near tropical temperatures!

Goodness, the UK really is not set to deal with unseasonably warm temperatures (even though it is Summer, 30+°C is extra HOT for England!) We sweated as we spoke about all things blogging and business for two days straight, but I almost didn’t notice because I was having such an awesome time. On Friday we jet off to Berlin for our next class and I genuinely can not wait to do it all over again!

But that’s not all, today is our first ever Blogcademy mixer party! It’s something we’ve never done before, and I’m not going to lie, keeping the organisational wheels in motion while there’s been so much else going on has a LITTLE on the stressful side. But it will all be worth it when we’re meeting our party-goers, sipping ice cold cocktails from Pig’s Bladder and Petticoat and using and abusing our Fishee Designs photo booth.

Now excuse me, I must dash, it’s time for me to go and panic over my outfit!
