#It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…#
Specially outside my front door, as it is currently snowing…woo! Will we finally have a white Christmas this year? That would certainly be awesome indeed. Let’s see what I’ve been spending my time doing this past 7 days shall we?
♥ The wonderful
Gala Darling is one of my biggest blogging inspirations. She wrote this letter to me (well to all her readers, but it’s so poignant to me and how I’m feeling right now that it might as well have been addressed to moi) to let us know how great we are. It totally made my week so I have to share it with you too. Be sure to listen to the audio version, where she reads it in her cute kiwi accent. I heart her. Thanks you Ms Darling!
♥ My SEO article was featured in the UK website, Enterprise Nation, which is all about the 5-9er – i.e people who work full time jobs but run their own business after hours – that’s me alright! Thanks to Emma for the feature
♥ The Broke Ass Bride website has had a glamorous makeover! Dana has worked stupendously hard to revamp her already stonkingly popular blog.
♥ Why fewer blog comments aren’t a bad thing
♥ Being in the UK, the new FTC announcement for sponsorship transparency doesn’t apply to me. However this article has persuaded me that writing one may be the best blogging decision I could make.
♥ We bought kittens! We have to wait until February 7thto get them because they are still only a monthand a month and a half old. I love them so much already! The one on the left is a boy and the one on the right is a girl. The are Maine Coons and will be heeeuge when they grow up ( check out the girl’s daddy!) Any help with names will be greatly appreciated. Want to see more piccies?
Wedding TV will be showing Nicola & Ben’s Happily Ever After love story. I featured their wedding and gorgeous Super 8 video back in May and worked with Wedding TV to get the show together. If your in the UK be sure to check it out! (and if you’re not I will try to post the video next week)
♥ Photographer’s take note! Kelly Moore has just released the Kelly Moore bag– a beautifully crafted, designer inspired, quite frankly ridiculously stunning camera bag. I want one
♥ Made With Love Designs specialises in personalised event stationery & greetings cards, all of which have a authentic British feel to them. This week she has posted a awesome British punk/London love affair inspiration board on her blog.
♥ This amazing ‘Where the Wild Things are’ bachelorette party concept was designed by Paige of Bash Eco-Events and Kelly of Yes, Please and photographed by Erin Hearts Court for the online magazine, Utterly Engaged. A-a-amazing! Thanks to Paige for sending these over
Joe Sanfilippo is giving away a free wedding photography package
♥ MTV is looking for newlyweds to star in a new reality show
♥ Jonas Peterson looks back over 2009♥ London vintage dress shop,
Fur Coat No Knickers have the best brides and the best dresses! My favourites of this week are this blue beauty and this ravishing red one.♥
Wallpapers to make your desktop a happier place♥
Utter shoe infatuation.♥
Tattoos, chucks, wild hair, and body piercings
♥ Sneak peaks like this always get me excited
♥ Magical. How did I miss this one?!
♥ Graphic designer Guy Shield proposed to his girlfriend by designing a series of illustrations, that when folded in a specific way, said ‘Will you marry me?’
multicoloured dress, tattoos and love – making your wedding your own
♥ Floaty light dresses from Sarah Steven on Polkadot Bride
♥ I’m loving faux fur right now. So snugly and warm
♥ Faux friendships. Beware! Via Think Splendid
♥ Sparkly, fur, glitter and vintage embellishment….all on one pair of shoes!♥
Yet more sparkle on Polkadot Bride. Yummers
♥ A homespun wedding to make you swoon.
♥ A super stylish ranch wedding – eeek monochrome polka dot dress!
♥ More killer shoes
♥ Love this tie. Love this diy boutonniere.
♥ A vintage dream wedding
♥ Even though the new FTC regulations for bloggers do not apply to Rock n Roll Bride, I felt the need to write a little blurb about how I ♥ all my sponsors!
♥ Video gaga…
All of my UK readers will know about this but I feel the need to go international with this one. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE the X-factor. I watched it religiously in a manner that actually bordered on obsession. However even though the show is great, the songs the winner releases every Xmas (which of course gets the Christmas number one) are always shocking. This year, a group of ‘radicals’ are campaigning that the UK boycott the winner’s single and instead get Rage Against the Machine to number one. Love it! This video says it all…

With Christmas literally hours away (eeek) you'd be forgiven for thinking I'd be winding down for the year and blog land would slowly have become a lonely little place. Naaahh my darlings! I have found a bumper number of awesomeness to share with you, to round off your pre-Crimbo week with a BANG. This may actually be the biggest Thursday Treat ever. I'll be talking a few days off for Christmas but will be back early next week as usual. The posts may come a bit for sparsely but I will certainly be here. I hope you enjoy perusing these little gems and I'll see you on the other side. Happiieee Chrrrismas...
♥ I might have to start this Thursday Treats with a bit of a brag. Over the last 7 days I have had not one, not two but three aaamazing write ups on blogs I love, admire and regularly lust over. Go check out Underneath the Petticoat, Clarabow's Blog and (squeeeel) Gala Darling's iCiNG blog. I friggin' love blog land!

It's my favourite time of the week again and I'm always ready for a little treat aren't you? To stay with, I had to share yet another image by Kirsty Mitchell at the top of this post (she's got the top spot for a second week running now) as this simply is my favourite image I've seen all week. She sent it over to me a few days ago and it's well...just too damn wonderful for words isn't it?! In fact all her photography is really - simply breathtaking...Thanks Kirsty!

Those who follow me on Twitter and Facebook will know I've had a rough few days of late. I've been letting things (or should I say certain people!) get to me and it must stop! Arrgh... so I apologise for that right now. However, in a much more positive vein, I am very excited to get going with this week's Thursday Treats as it always cheers me to share such internet wonderfulness with you all, my dear readers and loyal fans 😛
♥ First off - erm..hello? How fabulous are the photos at the top of this post? It was taken by the amazingly fun, cool, quirky and chatty Leah McCormick who I was lucky enough to meet on a cold day in London just before Christmas. I took her for a walk around Soho and down Carnaby Street where she went nuts over the Christmas decorations. Well they are pretty gorgeous aren't they?
♥ 10 of the weirdest wedding invitations - I think they're all pretty damn cool actually!

Hello my dears and welcome to the first Thursday Treats of the new decade! Just as big, just as inspiring and just as fit to bursting with links and fun a-plenty. Let's crack on shall we?
♥ 2010 may only be in it's infancy, but it has so far been a very exciting year for Rock n Roll Bride! Not only was I featured in Cosmopolitan Bride, but I was lucky enough to be asked to model for the infamous Julia Boggio and her Vintage Boudoir series. I braved the snow yesterday and headed up to her Wimbledon studios for a day of fabulous retro hair & make up, styling to die for and to pose and pout my little ass off. I can not wait to share all the details and the photographs, but for now, why not check out my sneak peak shots that I took of (some!) of my outfits with my new favourite toy.
