Thursday Treats: Back to the Future Wedding Cake & Overpriced Wallpaper

November 8, 2012

I’ve had a busy week this week, kicking off with the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza in Birmingham on Sunday. Now I’m not one of those blgogers who looooves wedding fairs, but I have to say this was – by far – the best one I’ve ever been to. The exhibitors were fabulous (you can see photos of some of my fave things on my instagram – hello! Back to the Future wedding cake!) and the brides & grooms-to-be that were wondering round were all so cool I could have died. It was so awesome to meet so many readers and fans in such a short space of time. I was humbled by all your kind words and your hugs. Thank you, thank you.

Then on Tuesday I headed to The Dorchester in London to speak at the Niemierko Academy for wedding planners. I spoke all about blogging, social media and why my readers are the best. I was in one of the fanciest hotels in London, talking to quite a high brow group of professionals and I rock up and say “yeah my favourite weddings are the ones where the couple make everything themselves and spend as little money as possible” HAHA – cue surprised gasps all round!

Then yesterday I was back in London shooting with Cosmopolitan Magazine… NO BIGGIE. They’re running a feature on me and my glamorous life (ha!) in their February issue (which is in shops in January) and I’m thrilled! The girls were lovely and I had the best time being made to feel all celebrity-esque. I can’t wait to see the results!

So yeah, busy week… PHEW. So what have you been up to?
