This week has been brought to you by central heating and gallons of tea. I’ve been watching the snow fall from my office window with no real desire to venture out. There’s something about weather like this that just makes me want to hibernate.

But today I’ve braved the cold to head to London for Mark’s Valentines bloggers brunch (I’ll be instagramming snaps if you’re at all interested!) Each year he does some kind of fancy swanky Valentines party (you can see past ones here and here) and I always wonder how the hell I’ve managed to get invited again… Despite having to get up rather early to get there on time, I’m excited to meet the other bloggers, especially because I managed to sneak some of The Blogcademy graduates onto the list!

Afterwards I’ll be popping in to see my girls at Fur Coat No Knickers for a glass of Cava and to pick the winner of our Flaunt It competition. Oh the excitement!

Until next week…

Best of the Rest

♥ Did you know that the clocks in Grand Central station are permanently wrong? And it’s on purpose!
This photographer photographed his own wedding. It’s an odd idea and quite a strange article… I certainly don’t agree with much of what he’s saying and, forgive me, but I don’t think he quite pulled it off either… Thoughts?
The perfect pairing – another odd one but I love the concept!
♥ A bouquet of unicorns! You know you want to carry this at your wedding…
♥ Cats that look like pin up girls – so funny!

Anyone that knows me at all will know that Back to the Future is my favourite movie series of all time. This is genius

I love Postsecret. Their valentines video is touching, sad and heartfelt

    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
