So it seems like I’ve started every Treats post recently with “wow what a week!” so sorry but… wow what a week!
On Sunday night we sold the last
Blogcademy space… yes that’s right the very first Blogcademy sold out in under 7 days. Gala, Nubby & I are literally on cloud 9. We’re so incredibly thrilled with the enthusiastic response we’ve received. We can’t wait to meet everyone that’s signed up and talk about our very favourite subject for two whole days. For those of you that weren’t able to get booked in, fret not because we have options for you! Firstly, our Scholarship programme where one deserving guy or gal can win a free ticket to the event. All you have to do is make a short video telling us (or showing us) why you think you should win. We’ve had a few people say they’re too shy to be in a video… well hell, be creative! Think outside the box, come up with something crazy, who said it had to just be you talking into a video camera? We want you to dazzle us!
But if you’re really too shy for the video thing, but are a dab hand at the organisational shiz, then we are also on the lookout for an
NYC-based volunteer to help us out in the run up and on both day’s of the event… and yes, you’ll get to attend for free! You can read more about both these opportunities on The Blogcademy blog.
And finally, if you want to be notified of all Blogcademy developments and new location announcements, you can sign up to
our mailing list right here.
Oh crap, I almost forgot, I’ve got another
School of Rock workshop tomorrow… must dash! Weddings & Weddingy Things…
Ed Peers – what a wedding! Tuscany looks (even more) beautiful through your lens
♥ Modern Geometric Wedding
♥ Antlers, and pom poms, and xerographica! Oh my!
♥ Tropical beach trash the dress♥
Playful Elopement at Summer Camp♥
Crafty DIY and bluegrass wedding
♥ Anaheim Backyard Wedding
♥ (and another) Handmade Geometric Wedding
♥ Love this greenhouse wedding (and the bride’s spotty dress!)

Tin Sparrow Studio
Sales & Events
Hello!Lucky are having a fab 50% off sale for UK customers. Beautiful wedding stationery with up to 50% off? Yes please…
♥ Oh Jimmy Choo what are you doing to me sending me emails like this?!
Best of the Rest
Nubby blogged about her process when designing the Rock n Roll Bride magazine – plus shared some inside pages. Ooooh pretty layouts. Copies have been flying out since she blogged this but you can still grab one here.
♥ But that’s not all! She also blogged some of the tips & insights that she picked up whilst working on this mammoth project
♥ I’m a bit of a freak because I hate chocolate, but I think some of you might go a little nuts (see what I did there?!) over this Nutella fudge recipe. You’re welcome.
♥ Utterly love this article on 16 year old Rookie editor Tavi Gevinson and her mentor Ira Glass. In particular this quote from Tavi, “It’s not about us granting anyone permission; it’s about letting girls know they can grant themselves permission.” Jeez I wish I was that bright when I was 16… actually scrap that, I wish I was that bright now.
♥ I bloody love Dawn Porter. I love her even more for writing this article about self-esteem for Glamour Magazine.
The comic sans song literally made my week. I’ve watched this video approximately 75 times. I
dare you not to get it stuck in your head.

Thursday Treats: Christmas Shopping & Colourful Weddings
December 6, 2012
Happy Thursday my little muffins! The weekend is nearly upon us as we're edging closer and closer to the big C... oh yes I am so excited for Christmas already. We haven't got our tree up yet but - and this is a big but - I have managed to start my Christmas shopping which is always a huge weight off my shoulders. Does anybody else get Christmas shopping anxiety!? I never want to be the one to buy the rubbish gifts! Anyway, I've broken the seal this year and - shock horror - I've actually been enjoying it. I am on the look out for gift guides for geeky, picky and very specific long haired men though. Gareth is impossible to buy for! Any ideas?
Thursday Treats: Blissful Spa Days, Koala Cuddles and Surfing Beach Babes!
October 31, 2013
Well, Queensland you certainly haven't disappointed! After a 24 hour journey (London to Dubai to Singapore to Brisbane) I touched down in Australia just before 1am on Sunday morning. I was dreading having such a long flight but I need not have worried. I flew with Emirates, who I’ve never experienced before, and they were amazing! The planes not only had wifi (!!) but power outlets behind every seat… which, when you’re a computer addict like me is a total revelation! I spent most of my time in the air obsessively devouring Homeland episodes (my latest TV obsession) and writing – bliss!
Thursday Treats: OMG Australia, Here I Come!
October 24, 2013
I have no idea what's in store for me over the next three and a half weeks. Having such a packed schedule recently means that I've had little to no time to research much of what Gala, Shauna and I will be getting up to while we're down under. Thank goodness for Virgo friends who obsessively arrange everything on your behalf! All I do know is the week before our first class in Brisbane I've been promised a spa day, surfing lessons, koala cuddling and zip-wiring through a rainforest. WHAT!? Oh you bet ya I'll be reporting back on all this stuff when I return.
Thursday Treats – 22nd September 2011 + Partying with Choccywoccydoodah on Brighton Pier + Please Vote for me to Win A Cosmopolitan Blog Award!
September 22, 2011
It's been a busy few weeks in Rock n Roll Bride Land. This week I attended the Perfect Wedding Awards and today I'm at the 30 year celebration of Sassi Holford party. Last week I was invited to party on the pier with Choccywoccydoodah. Oh it's such a hard life being surrounded by such fabulous yumminess...
(honestly, I'm knackered...it's a good knackered though!)
Thursday Treats: 3rd May 2012 – New York, Neeeew YOOOOORK!
May 3, 2012
Wooohooo guess where we're flying off to today!? Yeah I know, I'm subtle aren't I!? Gareth & I are off for 2 weeks and I couldn't be more excited. We've hired an apartment, we're gonna hang out with Gala & Mike (I'm well excited to meet Mr. Darling!) and Megan & Dave who are flying in from Omaha to see us. I'm also dying with the anticipation of making a brand new BFFs in Christina of Made u Look Photography who's going to be shooting Gareth & I! Squeeee!
Thursday Treats – 26th July 2012: Hello Sunshine!
July 26, 2012
Wow, what a scorcher this week has been! I ain't complaining (honest!) but my productivity has gone waaaay down. That glorious sunshine outside my window has just been too darn tempting. I did purchase the brightest neon orange dress known to man though. I am seriously excited to wear blind people in this baby!
I also found out this week that I'm going to be featured in Cosmopolitan Magazine! I don't usually mention my press features here anymore but this is a really exciting one. I'm going to be profiled in their 'So you think you want my job?' section and oh boy I can't wait. Squeeeeeal!
But the biggest news of the week is that a truckload (literally) of copies of issue two of the Rock n Roll Bride print magazine are being delivered to our house tomorrow!! I know, I KNOW It's taken so flippin' long to get this project completed but oh boy it is gonna be worth it. I have a new found respect for anyone in the magazine industry. How they manage to pull together monthly editions is beyond me! Issue two is bigger, better and even more glorious than the first. Again, we've ordered a limited print run, so be sure to pop by the blog 9am on Monday to find out how you can get your hands on a copy! HOLY GUACAMOLE I MIGHT EXPLODE.
Thursday Treats: The Blogcademy, Inbox Hemorrhage & Bumping Back down the Earth
October 25, 2012
Gee wizzola what a fortnight! My jet-lagged brain is currently struggling to catch up with life let alone put any kind of semblance of sense into writing some blog posts, so I apologise in advance if this post is a little...chaotic.

Well last week I had a rather exciting letter through my door informing me that I'd be nominated for a Perfect Wedding Award! Now I know awards are not the be all and end all... but hell, I'm not gonna lie, I really want a shiny trophy to put on my mantelpiece!

Voting is opening until 6th August 2012 and the winners will be announced in the magazine out on 5th September... Plus there's even a fancy awards dinner...and I like dinner...and awards...
