Thursday Treats: A Bridal Fashion Week Special

with nu bride

With my gorgeous friend and fellow blogger, Nu Bride

This week was a big one in the British wedding industry. It was time for The White Gallery and London Bridal Fashion Week, two events that run simultaneously in the capital. Bridal fashion week is the same as ‘normal’ fashion week really; designers exhibit their new collections to the press and boutiques so we know what to talk about/ stock for the coming season!

Here are some of the best things I saw…

That Sassi Holford rose dress, oh my goodness! I hope I’ll see a real Rock n Roll bride in that soon. I’ll be honest, I’ve never really enjoyed fashion week that much in the past. I always found it a litttttle bit boring and the new designs all very same same, but this year I totally stand corrected, it was awesome!

I mean, just check out all the shoe prettiness. Boring, ivory satin these are not!

PS I have some really exciting (and scary) magazine-related news to share with you soon. Watch this space!

Thursday Treats: Discounts A-Plenty for Rock n Roll Brides!

BLOGCADEMY_LON_PROMO_INSTA_1

Goodness, I can’t believe we have less than a month to go until the next Blogcademy workshop! This time we’re hitting up London, which are always secretly my favourite classes. Not only because it’s my home turf and we hold them in the most beautiful space ever, but because the European babes always totally BRING IT with their energy and enthusiasm!

We currently have less than five tickets remaining for this class, and after this we won’t be back in the UK until at least this time next year, so if you’ve been umming and ahhing, go on, take the plunge! I promise you won’t regret it!

Here’s what I’ve been filling my brain with this week… PS I have some great discount offers to share with you today, keep reading to find out all about them.

Thursday Treats: Join the Party!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Have you heard the news? On Tuesday, on a bit of a whim, I started a closed Facebook group for Rock n Roll brides, grooms, wedding obsessives and vendors to connect and help each other with wedding planning. IT HAS GONE OFF THE CHARTS.

Within 24 hours of it launching we had over 1000 members, and it’s pretty much taken over my stream completely! It makes me so incredibly happy to see everyone connecting, sharing their plans, making friends and helping each other out. Isn’t that what the internet is all about?! I think it might just be the best thing I’ve ever done actually. If you’d like to join in the party, just click here to request an invite. Fair warning though, you might not get any work done for the rest of the day…

Here’s what else has been occupying my (limited!) down time this past seven days.

Thursday Treats: MAC Masterclasses, Magazines and Free People Bridal!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

WHAT A WEEK! Not only did issue 3 hit the shelves this morning (have you got one yet?!) but yesterday I had the pleasure of being invited to two awesome events. First up was a bridal make up masterclass with MAC.

Now, for a make up junkie like me, when someone from one of the biggest make up brands on the planet emails you out of the blue it’s a pretty exciting day! The rest of the audience was almost exclusively professional MUAs and as senior artist Cher showed us two pretty bridal inspired make up looks, I was mentally making notes of all the new products I’m desperate to buy – OOPS!

As soon as that was done, I hopped back on the tube and headed over to the Free People showroom in Marylebone for their AW15 press day.

A press day is basically where members of the press (duh!) can meet the team and preview all the new collections. This was the first time Free People have invited me, and I was initially quite surprised, but I love the brand so though “Hey, why not?”

But when I got there my excitement hit record highs because they told me that they are launching a BRIDAL LINE this summer! Oh my lord, the anticipation! I’ve featured many weddings with brides or bridesmaids in Free People outfits in the past, so the fact that they’re now going to have a collection specifically for weddings is such good news. I can’t wait to see the dresses and don’t you worry, I’ll be sharing them (and all the details of where you can see them for yourselves) on the blog just as soon as I can.

Thursday Treats: Guess What Arrived This Week?!

rocknrollbride magazine issue 3

Tuesday morning was more exciting than usual, because my copies of issue 3 of the magazine arrived at my house!! Now, I don’t want to toot my own horn too much but it looks EPIC, AMAZING and is totally the best issue so far. It might mostly down to the incredible rainbow cover shot by Matt Miller – just wait until you see the full wedding inside!

The magazine is on sale NEXT THURSDAY, April 30th, so be sure to put a note in your diary. It will also be available for pre-order tomorrow – YAY!  Oh and I’ll post some of my favourite spreads from inside when I remind you that it’s in shops next week.

Edit: You can pre-order issue 3 right now meaning it will be delivered to your door on launch day, next Thursday!!

So let’s see what else has been keeping me entertained this past seven days shall we?

Thursday Treats: Because Spring

spring has sprung

Ahh Spring, it always makes me want to clear up, clean things and get my shit together! So what’s been going on this week? Well, not much in terms of particularly exciting activities… unless you count organising my desk exciting. I mean I know *I* do.  I’ve cleared the meaningless clutter, surrounded my computer with crystals and candles and put a vision/ inspiration board on the wall. It’s all looking very pretty and colourful I have to say!

Other than that I’ve really just been cracking on with writing issue 4 (OMG!) of the magazine (issue 3 comes out April 30th and issue 2 is still available for sale). SO ALL GOOD THINGS.

I hope wherever you are, your day is filled with sunshine, flowers and love!
