Happy Thursday babes! I hope you’ve all had a fabulous week, even if the weather has been as shithouse around your parts as it has been around mine. It’s definitely Autumn now huh!?

This past seven days I’ve basically been doing the same thing as last week – freaking out/ preparing for my talk at Way Up North and finishing issue 5 of the magazine. Not long now! We go to print next week and it’s on sale November 5th. I can’t wait for you to see the new issue, I’m probably going to say this every single time but I think it’s the best one yet. Yep, the excitement is real!

I don’t have a lot of links for you today. I’ve been spending most of my time manically working so I haven’t been mooching about online much, but a small selection of links is better than no links at all, right?

Thursday Treats: Summer Is Most Definitely Over

Summer is most definitely over, and while I’m not one of those people that gets super excited for ‘Fall’ (I think pumpkin spiced anything is gross) I am looking forward to being able to wear layers and for rocking dark, dark lipstick on a daily basis to be acceptable again!

This week has been pretty insane. Along with coming back from my trip and doing all the catch up involved with that, I’ve been finalising everything for the next issue of the magazine (on sale November 5th, put the date in your diary!) and preparing for Way Up North, a photography conference that I’m speaking at in Sweden in two weeks time. Eeek, what was I thinking!? 500+ photographers staring at me while I advise them on blogging? Not terrifying at all.

As it’s the first Thursday Treats in three weeks I have more than the usual number of links to keep you entertained. So grab an extra large cup of tea and dive right in to this bumper edition of internet loveliness!

Thursday Treats: Aaand I’m off!


Death to the Stock Photo

I hope you’ve all had a fabulous week. Have you managed to nab yourself a copy of Rock n Roll Bride magazine yet? It’s been SO EXCITING seeing all your posts on Instagram, it makes me so incredibly happy, I can’t even tell you.

As you read this I’ll be boarding my flight to San Francisco where I’m heading for the penultimate Blogcademy workshop this weekend. I’m then off to New York for the last ever class (sob!) but not before stopping off in Orlando for a celebratory blow out at Disneyworld! I’ve never been and I’m super, duper excited. Has anyone got any tips for me? I’ve heard it’s as big as some American cities and my brain just can’t comprehend that scale!

As always, the blog schedule will be a little lighter while I’m away but you can follow along with my adventures on Instagram if that kinda thing takes your fancy. Have a great couple of weeks and I’ll see you on the other side!

Thursday Treats: Magazines and Models

instagram 2

The week has been all about the two M’s… magazines and models! We took delivery of 1000 copies of the magazine and Gareth has been packing and preparing them for shipping out to those that pre-ordered early next week! While our living room might resemble a warehouse right now (boxes, magazines and pink envelopes as far as the eye can see!) I am still soooo excited about it. The mag officially goes on sale NEXT THURSDAY (3rd) so if you’d prefer to pop down to your local WHSmiths to pick up your copy you can do so then.

And models! My goodness, when we put the call out asking for real babes to apply to be the faces of my new veil (eek!) collection with Crown and Glory we certainly didn’t anticipate just how many applications we’d receive. We’ve already had more than 50 of you contact us and it’s proving very difficult to choose already! Remember, you have two whole weeks to get those emails in, so if you haven’t applied yet you have plenty of time. Don’t let the number of entrants put you off either, you might be just what we’re looking for!

OK! Enough of all that excitement, let’s crack on with some Thursday Treats. I haven’t spend much time online this week as I’ve been here, there and everywhere, but I hope you still enjoy these links.

Thursday Treats: Getting Excited!

It feels like the few weeks before Christmas to me right now. I can’t even tell you how excited I am for issue 4 to hit the shelves and how much it’s killing me to keep what the magazine looks like a secret. I’ll be sharing the cover really soon, I promise! I know to you guys it might not seem any different to the previous three issues but for us its been a whole different ball game.

Before, we had the publishers holding our hands and taking us through everything step by step, but now we’re doing everything ourselves again. It really has been the biggest labour of love but it’s also been sooo worth it. We’ve learnt so much and made huge strides in the business behind the scenes. I am SO proud of how issue 4 has turned out and the new re-brand is looking incredible. Onwards and upwards baby!*

The next magazine hits the shops on September 3rd (that’s just two weeks away!) and the new look Rock n Roll Bride will be landing around then too. CAN’T WAIT CAN’T WAIT CAN’T WAIT!

Thursday Treats: Weddingland Has Swallowed Me Up!


Oh it’s been a busy old week! On Monday issue 4 went to print (omg I can’t wait to see it), on Tuesday I went wedding dress shopping with my sister, today I’m doing a bridesmaid dress fitting for my friend who’s getting married in November and tomorrow I’m having dinner with friends to celebrate Sophie and Gareth‘s engagement! Yep, I am well and truly engulfed in weddingland this week (so what’s new huh!?)

How has your week been? What lovely wedding things have you been doing? If you need some distraction for a while, feast your eyes on this lot.
