It’s everyone’s favourite time of the week again – Thursday Treats BABY! As you read this I will again be sat in that tattooist’s chair being all brave and getting my sleeve (hopefully) finished. I can’t wait to get there and I can’t wait to share it with you even more! It’s going to be epic. If you fancy a sneaky peek the check out this photo I snapped on my phone and tweeted the other day – yes that is a roll of film!

See you on the other side my friends…in the meantime, enjoy munching through this week’s tasty selection

Thursday Treats – 3rd June 2010

This week has all been about catching up, getting focused and mulling over new blog ideas. It’s exciting and I love it! However I always need my daily dose of pretty to keep me going and this is what I’ve been lusting over the past 7 days.

♥ First up, considering I feature people’s weddings and photo shoots for a living, I got surprisingly excited when UK blog Love my Dress asked if she could feature my wedding! Looking back, our wedding was perfect for us back then, but if we were to get married again I know we’d do it totally differently. I spend my days surrounded by the most unique and crazy-original wedding ideas so it’s impossible not to think about how we’d do things differently now! Can you believe my hair wasn’t even pink!? Our wedding was actually quite classic. We had a black and white theme and although we certainly added a few Rock n Roll and personal touches it definitely wasn’t the most ‘out-there’ wedding in the world…but hey, it was perfect for us at that stage of our lives. Our wedding was the perfect reflection of the 2008 Kat & Gareth and our lives now are what’s important - we are the perfect reflection of a 2010 Kat & Gareth! Anyway self-doubt over…I always think that If we hadn’t have got married 2 years ago in the way that we did then Rock n Roll Bride wouldn’t have been born – imagine that!? Go check out MY WEDDING over at Love My Dress! (but be sure to come back for the rest of today’s treats…)

Thursday Treats – 27th May 2010

So this week has been a pretty ace one. Firstly I fell in love…with the new Topshop make up range. Yes I am such a girl but the Bee’s Knees nail varnish and Coral lip polish are to die for. I’m going shopping later. I might have to make a few more purchases. It’s cheap, it’s gorgeous and it may even be a rival for the beloved Mac…shocking!

In less superficial news, on Monday I finally got to meet UK photographer Steve Gerrard who was down in London for an engagement shoot and on Tuesday I headed to The White Gallery event to meet a whole host of amazing British bridal designers and industry peeps. I can’t wait to share my report with you and for you to see what I got up to! I also rekindled my love of music this week, mainly after talking about the subject with my tattoo artist (and no, I’m not sharing the results yet – it’s not finished!) and with Steve, who as well as being a hugely popular wedding photographer, also does a lot of music photography. Being the Rock n Roll Bride and all, people always ask me what kind of music I’m into, and while as a teenager I was hugely into my rock/metal music, in the last few years I guess it’s fallen to the wayside – what with being busy and generally not being crazy about the stuff I hear on the radio. I kind of forgot about how awesome music is! That probably sounds very weird to  a lot of you huh?! Anyway, I decided to give some of my old albums and spin..and omg Deftones, Rage, Nirvana, Hole, Marylin Manson, My Ruin, System of a Down…where have you been these past few years?! I’ve missed you! 

Now please excuse me while I got rock out some more and you get your teeth stuck into this bunch of treats…

Thursday Treats – 20th May 2010

As you read this I will be sat in a tattooists chair trying my hardest to act cool and not over-react to the pain. Oh yes people I am getting a half sleeve! I have been dreaming of getting one for the past few years (in fact pretty much since I started doing this and staring at gorgeous inked brides all day!) so I’m beyond excited (and nervous) that the day has finally arrived. It will take a few sessions to finish but rest assured that I will be sharing the experience of it all with you when it’s done and luckily for you (and me) I’ve already got a few photographers who’ve asked to take some photographs of me with it once it’s done. Bonus!

Anyway…on with this thing we call Thursday Treats. I’ll see you when I’m back from the tattooists (eeeek!)

Thursday Treats – 6th May 2010

Credit: Choccywoccydoodah (I don’t usual blog things like this but I saw this cake in a magazine the other day and I hunted it out as I had to share it with you. Please can I have it as an ornament in my house?! Paaawwweeeeze? I wish we’d had it for our wedding too as our first dance was actually ‘All you need is Love’ PLUS I have it tattooed on the inside of my wrist! perfect or what?)

It’s a big day today. Not only is it the election (and I still don’t know who I’m going to vote for!) but I’m off to London-town for some meetings to discuss and plan some exiting new Rock n Roll developments – watch this space! Before all that though I’ve got just enough time to round up all this interweb loveliness for you…
