Thursday Treats – 3rd February 2011 + A Farewell to bid tv (plus video of me on the telly!)

Credit: French Playboy via Audrey Kitching Oh lala. Reminds me a little of my Paris shoot!

As most of you will know, I left my full time job last week. It was an emotional weekend of saying goodbye for me but I’ve certainly hit the ground running with this full time blogging thing (two photo shoots in one week? Am I mad?!)

As Sunday was my last shift at the shopping channel, I decided I’d go on air to model the last piece of jewellery I’d ever sell (I was a producer you see.) Peter Simon, my presenter, who I’ve worked with for the last 2 and a half years, said a very emotional goodbye to me (can you see me holding back the tears?!) and the crew made a funny slate to put in the backscreen!

Anyway, I wanted to share the video with those of you that missed it or couldn’t get the joy that is bid tv on your own tele-boxes. Get the tissues ready!

Boohoo! Ok on with the fun stuff…

Have you signed up for the party of the year yet? It’s shaping up to not only be one of the most popular events I’ve ever been involved in (nearly 400 of you have already applied for tickets!) but also one of the most exciting. This week I’ve been chatting music, sweets, cupcakes and centrepieces with my army of helpers, and BOY is this gonna be one hell of a party!

In other news, don’t forget that if you’re not able to attend the party then I’m going to be at a number of other events over the coming months. I’d love to see loads of you there as always!

♥ Saturday 19th – Sunday 20th February is The Designer Vintage Bridal Show at Highbury Hall in Birmingham. I’ll be there on both days. Tickets are available online now for only £8!

♥ Sunday 20th – Monday 21st March is Luella’s Boudoir Wedding Fair at the uber swanky One Marylebone in London, I’ll be there on Monday 21st. The Sunday event will be held from 12-30pm – 5.30pm and on the Monday it’s from 4pm – 9pm (perfect to pop down to after work!) Tickets cost just £12 or £18 for two and for every ticket sold a donation of £2.00 will be made to the Eve Appeal – to book, or call 020 8879 7744.

Thursdays Treats – 20th January 2011

Wow. Busy week as ever. Today is aaaall about the treats though. I’ve actually been looking at a load of non-wedding stuff online this week. Not intentionally or anything, this is just the collection of internet pretties that have caught my eye. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

I have to start off by announcing and congratulating the 3 readers who have each won a poster & card from the BerinMade giveaway I ran this week. The winners were picked using a random number generator and the lucky few are:

Tracey M, who said:

I would so love this poster because my dad owns an old fashioned sweetie shop and still uses scales to weigh out all the sweets from jars. If this was up in my kitchen it would remind me of him and make me smile – puns are my favourite!

Sam, who said:

I’d love to win this as my boyfriend (and hopefully, soon to be fiancée!) loves liquorice more than anything.

When we first started seeing each other he drunkenly text me on a night out with the boys to tell me his “favourite things ever” were “1 – liquorice, 2- you. But that could change”

So cute! This would be the cutest little valentines gift for him!

Charlotte, who said:

So pretty! Who doesn’t love tasty treats on their wall?! I’d love to win the Licorice one as I’m doing a sweetie table at my wedding in July and that would look perfect in a frame on the table! Just looked at Erin’s Etsy shop – the dog cards are so sweet

You should all have an email in your inbox right about now asking for your addresses. Speak to you all soon!

Anyway guys, Let’s do this!

I also wanted to let you know that for the second year running Rock n Roll Bride was included in the prestigious industry list, Bride Tide’s Top 100 blogs. I am chuffed to bits to be included again!

OK, enough bragging – on with the show…
