Thursday Treats: MAC Masterclasses, Magazines and Free People Bridal!


WHAT A WEEK! Not only did issue 3 hit the shelves this morning (have you got one yet?!) but yesterday I had the pleasure of being invited to two awesome events. First up was a bridal make up masterclass with MAC.

Now, for a make up junkie like me, when someone from one of the biggest make up brands on the planet emails you out of the blue it’s a pretty exciting day! The rest of the audience was almost exclusively professional MUAs and as senior artist Cher showed us two pretty bridal inspired make up looks, I was mentally making notes of all the new products I’m desperate to buy – OOPS!

As soon as that was done, I hopped back on the tube and headed over to the Free People showroom in Marylebone for their AW15 press day.

A press day is basically where members of the press (duh!) can meet the team and preview all the new collections. This was the first time Free People have invited me, and I was initially quite surprised, but I love the brand so though “Hey, why not?”

But when I got there my excitement hit record highs because they told me that they are launching a BRIDAL LINE this summer! Oh my lord, the anticipation! I’ve featured many weddings with brides or bridesmaids in Free People outfits in the past, so the fact that they’re now going to have a collection specifically for weddings is such good news. I can’t wait to see the dresses and don’t you worry, I’ll be sharing them (and all the details of where you can see them for yourselves) on the blog just as soon as I can.


Phew, such fun times. How has your week been? Have you nabbed your copy of issue 3 yet?! It’s a goodie, I promise!

Thursday Treats: Guess What Arrived This Week?!

rocknrollbride magazine issue 3

Tuesday morning was more exciting than usual, because my copies of issue 3 of the magazine arrived at my house!! Now, I don’t want to toot my own horn too much but it looks EPIC, AMAZING and is totally the best issue so far. It might mostly down to the incredible rainbow cover shot by Matt Miller – just wait until you see the full wedding inside!

The magazine is on sale NEXT THURSDAY, April 30th, so be sure to put a note in your diary. It will also be available for pre-order tomorrow – YAY!  Oh and I’ll post some of my favourite spreads from inside when I remind you that it’s in shops next week.

Edit: You can pre-order issue 3 right now meaning it will be delivered to your door on launch day, next Thursday!!

So let’s see what else has been keeping me entertained this past seven days shall we?

Thursday Treats: Because Spring

spring has sprung

Ahh Spring, it always makes me want to clear up, clean things and get my shit together! So what’s been going on this week? Well, not much in terms of particularly exciting activities… unless you count organising my desk exciting. I mean I know *I* do.  I’ve cleared the meaningless clutter, surrounded my computer with crystals and candles and put a vision/ inspiration board on the wall. It’s all looking very pretty and colourful I have to say!

Other than that I’ve really just been cracking on with writing issue 4 (OMG!) of the magazine (issue 3 comes out April 30th and issue 2 is still available for sale). SO ALL GOOD THINGS.

I hope wherever you are, your day is filled with sunshine, flowers and love!

Thursday Treats: Birthday Treasure Hunts & Afternoon Tea in a Pink Palace

birthday thursday treats april 15

Happy Thursday! This week was awesome, what with it being my birthday and all. I was well and truly spoilt by Gareth! On Tuesday I woke up at 7.30am and saw a card in a rainbow envelope by my side of the bed. Written inside was this lovely message (ha!) but also the first clue for a treasure hunt for me to find my present!!

I jumped out of bed and starting dozily wandering around the house finding clue after clue until I opened a unassuming brown box at the end of our bed (which had gone unnoticed for days, yeah we might need to tidy our bedroom a bit!) and inside was the leather jacket from Whistles that I’d not so subtly been harping on about for weeks! The boy did good.

We didn’t have any concrete plans for the day, but I knew I wanted to get out of the house otherwise I’d end up working! We decided to hop on the train to London where we went for afternoon tea at Sketch (the pink gallery room is even more amazing in real life!) followed by a meander though the daffodils in Green Park, a stop off to see the Queen at Buckingham Palace, a leisurely stroll down the Southbank and finally a sushi supper. The sun was shining and it was a perfect, perfect day!

If you enjoy seeing my personal life snaps, you should totally follow me on Instagram by the way! I try to post something everyday and I can promise plenty of adorable cat pictures.

OK, Thursday treats time! Here’s the rest of the stuff that’s been amusing me over the past seven days:

Thursday Treats: Throwing Rainbows

lets party

Totes obsessed with this glitter party banner by The Bannerie

I’ve been on a rainbow kick. I’ve actually been feeling a bit down in the dumps, which might just be because of my impending 31st birthday next week (WHAT?! How did I get so OLD?!) or it could be just one of those things… But either way, I’ve been tackling my blueness by throwing some rainbows at it!

I ordered myself a bunch of rainbow roses (OMG!) because why would you not?! Followed by this incredible rainbow sapphire ring from Etsy. Let’s face it, if rainbows don’t cure what ails me, I don’t know what will!

I hope you’re feeling all full of the joy of spring, and less of a grump-a-puss like me. I want to wish you a fabulous Thursday and an even more eggggscellent Easter weekend. I’ll see you on the flip side, megababe.

Thursday Treats: Cocktails! Skydiving! Oh My!

thursday treats 26 Mar 15

I am very much looking forward to this weekend because Ronnie and Sophie are coming to stay. On Saturday we’re having a ‘crafternoon’, which we totally take the piss out of ourselves for saying, but it’s going to be suuuuper fun!

We’re going to be working on some DIY projects that I’ll be featuring on the blog soon. As you probably already know, I am DIY-phobic (AKA I suck at it) so I’ve had to call in the reinforcements. It’s all good though because one of them involves cocktails!! I’ve been ferociously scouring Amazon for ingredients all week and getting very excited over things like edible glitter and rose flavoured syrup!

Oh! And last weekend was quite monumental too because Gareth did a skydive! He is notoriously difficult to buy gifts for because he really doesn’t care about material things and never wants anything (except, like, motherboards and graphics cards and boring techy computer equipment which I really can’t buy for him!) So, for Christmas I decided to get him an experience instead of just pointless bits of junk that will sit around our house, and for some crazy reason I thought of a skydive.

He said he wasn’t nervous beforehand (yeah right!) but once he’d done it he was high as a kite on adrenaline and said it was the most amazing thing he’d ever done! If you’re looking for a unique gift for something that’s tricky to buy for (and a bit of an adrenalin junkie!) then I can totally recommend.

Aww so cute in his purple jumpsuit!

So how have you been? What are your plans this weekend?

PS Issue 3 of the print magazine is very nearly ready to go to print! It’s on sale April 30th and if you own a wedding business and would be interested in advertising be sure to get in touch!
