I’ve been struck down with the plague this week. ICK.

Yet in between my packed schedule of Disney movie marathons, blowing my ever reddening noggin and stumbling to the kitchen for yet another Lemsip (eugh, why so gross?) I’ve found plenty of time for scouring the interwebs for yummy Thursday Treats. You’re welcome…

Flash Sales

♥ The Kurt Geiger sale is pretty awesome and includes a whole host of Vivienne Westeood beauties (I know they’re your favourites too)
♥ Totally not wedding related but the Topshop sale is awesome at the moment. Mainly because the Summer has been so rubbish all the pretty (and bright!) Summer items have now been discounted. I don’t know about you but I’m not ready for the wooly jumpers and denim that’s filling the shelves in time for Autumn already.

    Interesting article about the bride wearing her mum’s/grandma’s dress- I’ll be wearing my mum’s dress when I get married in August. It’s a bargain at the cost of a dry clean, really nice to have that continuity, and amazing how it fits perfectly, too. My mum had it tailor made in Eastern Germany in the 70s. And no, it doesn’t look like Kate’s 😉
    There is something nice about having your own dress as well, so for the evening I’ve bought a 1930s dress (a flea market find). I have to say, having read a number of your recent articles I am mighty glad I never even set foot in a bridal boutique.
    Anyone else wearing their mum’s dress? (or their nan’s?)

  2. i really love the bride in her mum and grandmas dress… i wish i could be as tiny as my mum AND grandma on my wedding day so i could wear either of their dresses, but i was blessed with curves hahaha!

    i also loved seeing the owl and the pussycat themed ideas… so cute!

    well . . .i cant decide which is my fave part of this post… oh yes i can!! who knew a song with the words ‘even if i farted and followed’ through in could be so lovely?!?! haha and im not wearing my nannas dress! as much as i wouldve loved to as it was stuning, and similar to kates actually, but i am wearing a £75 vintage one form the 30’s and i cannot wait. bridal boutiques werent for me either! 😉 ahhh i think you deserve to have an award on your mantel piece! xx
