Snowdrifts & Sequins: London Blogcademy Video Insanity

blogcademy london holga1]

I’ve been playing with my Holga DSLR lens – so fun!

The London Blogcademys were nothing short of incredible. Like, seriously mind-blowing. I am forever in debt to the 60 (!) guys & gals who spent two whole days with us, each of them battling sleet, snow and precarious public transport to make it to the beautiful Curtain Road Studios in Shoreditch.

I am so immensely grateful to the ridiculously talented Richard Wakefield of FX Media for being there to capture the magic on film, to Lisa Devlin Emily Quinton for guest teaching and to Shell de Mar for snapping away mercilessly.

I’ll be sharing much more about what went on at both events over the coming weeks, but I couldn’t resist posting Richard’s amazing video today…

A Sunday Kind of Love: “We Were Able to Suck the Juice Out of Their Brains”

“Jeez, is she still banging on about The Blogcademy?” I hear you wail… Well yes actually because I. am. excited! It is by far one of the biggest and most rewarding projects I’ve been involved in and I just can’t stop smiling about the whole thing! And of course I don’t want you to miss it!

Tickets to our second (oh yes!) London date went on sale on Friday and are already selling quickly – we’re thrilled! But even more thrilling is hanging out in our secret graduate (and undergraduate) private forum – the excitement and anticipation in there in palpable. It’s so cute seeing all the newbies making friends with the New York gals, everyone asking and giving advice, people planning to meet up beforehand and others arranging to share hotel rooms. Now you know you wanna be a part of that!

Bitchless Bride on Rock n Roll Bride: Communication is Key

You may have seen me talk about Bitchless Bride before, especially on twitter. She is my new wedding industry hero! The alter ego of a wedding planner (and no, even I don’t know her true identity!) who was sick to death of crazy bridezillas and mental wedding vendors, she set up her blog to give it to us STRAIGHT. I loooove her. She’s a hoot. And hell, she rocks a pink wig. We’re definitely destined to be BFFs.

I just about wet my pants with excitement when her video guest blog landed in my inbox. Some exclusive Bitchless Bride on Rock n Roll Bride?! Hell. Yes. We are a match made in wedding heaven. Listen up brideys, listen up wedding suppliers, cos Bitchless is about to give it to you. No holds barred.

(FYI there are a few swears in here, if you’re at work… or you’re of a delicate disposition then you might wanna save this for later…)
