Thursday Treats: Coming Soon…

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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!

Thursday Treats: A Very English Week

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Bright and early Tuesday morning, Gala and Shauna arrived in the UK. Since then we’ve been keeping things relatively low key, spending most of our time here, drinking tea and watching Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend (don’t ask!) The real madness starts tomorrow though and doesn’t stop until the first week of August!

We teach the London Blogcademy class this weekend, followed by another during the week and then host our first ever mixer event on the 24th! I’m so excited about the latter and I’m currently running a contest to give away a pair of tickets. I’d love to see your face there. Come on, don’t be shy…

Last week I also finally took the plunge and bought myself a new camera. I’ve been using a Canon 500d with a 50mm lens for the past few years. It’s a great SLR but it’s just so cumbersome that I would never want to carry it with me. After hearing amazing things about the new Samsung NX3000 I knew I had to have one. It’s lightweight, easy to throw in my bag and comes with removable lenses. It also has some pretty nifty features like being able to transfer the images straight to my phone over it’s built in wifi – whoa magic! – and the ability to take selfies by winking (that’s a blogger’s dream right there!) Expect to see a lot more self-shot photos around these parts…

This week has been really quiet online, hence the slightly shorter edition this week. I guess everyone’s been out enjoying the sunshine!

Thursday Treats: Always the Bride, Never the Bridesmaid…

groovy love

Two very exciting things happened this week. On Wednesday my best friend from Uni came to stay. I haven’t seen her in SO LONG (like, a criminally long time) and it was bloody amazing to hang out. You know those friends who even if you don’t see each other for ages when you finally do it’s like no time has past? That’s exactly what it’s like with Carly. I’m so happy to have her in my life. We drank cocktails, went shopping, we played The Logo Board Game (nerd and proud!) … But the most exciting thing was that she asked me to be her bridesmaid!!  Can you believe I’ve never been one before? Ahh double excitement!

The other pretty awesome development of the week was that Rock n Roll Bride has been shortlisted as Best Wedding Blog at the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards! Now I don’t normally give two hoots about awards, but there’s something so extra special about being noted by such a huge publication. It’s a cheesy cliché but it really is an honour. If you could take five seconds out of your day to vote for me to win I will love you forever!

In other news, Gala and Shauna come to the UK for our next round of Blogcademy workshops NEXT TUESDAY! Ahh oh my goodness where is this year going?
