WIN Your Wedding Dress from Flaunt It by Fur Coat No Knickers!

Fur Coat No Knickers Flaunt It Group 16

It’s no secret that I am a Fur Coat No Knickers super fan. Laura and Emma are the purveyors of the friendliest bridal boutique in the country. No joke, these babes are some of the nicest human beings you will ever meet.

For years now they’ve been the go-to store for vintage wedding dresses, and in 2013 they expanded their range to include made to measure designs. All lovingly handmade in Britain, they wanted to be able to help every bride, whatever her shape or size. They love their vintage gowns, but with vintage sizing being stingy at the best of times, it was really hard for them to cater to anyone over a size 12.

WIN A ‘You Are Beautiful’ Prize Pack from Olivine Atelier

Olivine-Atelier2

One of my favourite treats in our San Francisco Blogcademy goodie bags was an adorable little perfume sample set from Olivine Atelier. With it’s sublime packaging and branding (done by none other than Ms Shauna Haider!) I instantly gravitated towards it… but that was only the beginning!

I tested each and every one of the seven perfumes we were treated to and when I came across Amongst The Waves I knew I’d found my new signature scent.

Imagine walking down a sandy beach, with your toes in the ocean. Imagine a cooling breeze with a sea salt lingering in the air. Imagine staring up at the sky at sunset, coconut-based cocktail in hand!

Heaven in a Bath Tub: WIN a Year’s Worth of Blissful Bathing with The Bathory!

the-bathory-giveaway3

Full disclaimer: I am writing this article in a towel. I just had the most amazing bath of my life, and I didn’t want to ruin that post-soak-glow by stopping to get dressed before telling you all about it!

I am a big fan of a bath. I really started having them because the shower in our house is completely rubbish, but now I really look forward to my daily splash. Working from home, it’s way too easy to go for days without properly getting clean (gross but true). In fact I usually start working in the morning without so much as brushing my teeth (again, gross but true) so come around 3 or 4pm I am in desperate need of cleansing!

It took me approximately 2.5 seconds to place an order with The Bathory when I discovered them online. Why? Because you get to create your very own customised bath soak! That is the kind of thing I love

the-bathory-giveaway1

The idea is simple, yet completely genius. First you select what kind of bath you’d like from one of three bases – bask, soothe or detox. Then you add your own blend of up to three essential oils. You can choose them so they evoke a certain feeling (relaxed, revived, happy, sexy, confident, focused, inspired) or just go wild and pick your favourites. The scents aren’t too overpowering on their own either so there’s no need to worry about choosing a weird combination and it not working.

I chose the detox base which is made from pure Espom salts and Rhassoul clay and is designed to draw out toxins. I decided I wanted something reviving for my mid-afternoon pick me up so I selected eucalyptus, grapefruit and rosemary as my oils.

And ooh la la, it was glorious. So glorious in fact that as soon as I’m finished writing this I’m off to order another. I think I might go for the way to delicious sounding soothe (with hydrating oatmeal, honey and buttermilk!) base next.

The Bathory claim to deliver the best bath of your life, and you know what, I actually think they just might.

WIN 12 Bathory Bath Soaks!

Have I got you desperately wanting to indulge in a little bath time action? Well I spoke to Laura, the genius behind all this amazingness, and she’s offered the fantastic prize of TWELVE bath soaks which one of you beauties will win. Each soak retails at $30/£18 (this is not budget bathing by any means!) so this is a really awesome – and generous – prize!

You could order them all at once (cheeky!) or eke them out with one a month for the next year. Now how damn wonderful does that sound?

To enter, simply comment below by Sunday 11th May telling us what your favourite way to relax is. This contest is open to ALL readers of Rock n Roll Bride, wherever you are on the planet!

This contest is now closed

Now excuse me, I’m off to fall into a post-Bathory coma. Over and out.

Win the £40,000 Wedding of Your Dreams from Confetti.co.uk!

win your wedding with confetti and rocknrollbride

I’ve heard way too many stories from people who’ve had to postpone or even cancel getting married simply because they couldn’t afford it. That makes me so very sad. Of course the amount you spend has less than zero indication on how awesome your marriage will be, but if you have little or no savings, even a completely budget wedding can be out of the question.

I’ve been championing budget weddings for years but just because you can’t – or don’t want! – spend thousands of pounds on one just day of your life, doesn’t mean you won’t spend hours dreaming about what you’d do if money was no object… right? Which is why I am so completely held over heels, hearts in my eyes, back flipping down the street excited to share this contest with you all today!

When Confetti got in touch to tell me they wanted to give someone a wedding prize package worth over £40,000 I jumped at the chance to share it with you!
