Only 20 days until Gareth & I go to The States! I’ve been invited by one of my blogging (and design) idols Princess Lasertron to go and model in her fashion show for Omaha Fashion Week and I’m just about to burst with excitement and nerves. This will be my second sashay down a catwalk (after my début in February at The Luella’s Boudoir Wedding Show at One Marylebone London) but this time is oh-so much more nerve-wrecking. Not only am I travelling half way across the world for the event, but Princess Lasertron is designing a dress especially for me! It’s going to be called the ‘Rock n Roll Bride’ (d’oh) and yes it will be available to purchase! I can’t wait to see it and share it with you afterwards…and nope I haven’t even seen it yet. However if her Fall 2010 dress collection is anything to go by it’s going to be ahh-mazing.

We’re also hopping over to LA while we’re there for a ‘lil holiday and to meet some of my other internet friends including Bowie Bride, Broke Ass Bride, Jasmine Star, Tinywater Photography and many more. Gareth & I aren’t big travellers and we haven’t had a holiday since out honeymoon to Tokyo, over THREE YEARS AGO. I’m quite nervous about the whole thing but as you can imagine I also seriously can’t wait!

Anyway, enough of my squeals of excitement and diversionary tactics…On with the treats!
