Thursday Treats: Tattoos and Texas!

August 8, 2013

I can’t actually believe it but this time next week I’ll be in Texas! Although I’m not really looking forward to the heat, I have been enjoying shopping for new maxi dresses for the occasion and, of course, I can’t wait to meet all the new Blogcadettes!

In other news I got my tattoo rework finished yesterday. IT LOOKS SO GOOD (well, it’ll look a lot better when it’s healed) but woooo! I have a rainbow on my shoulder. I’m so happy! I put off having these reworks for so long (I basically didn’t want to admit that there were parts of my sleeve that I really didn’t like) but I’m so over the moon that I bit the bullet and finally went ahead with it. Leah Moule is an actual genius. If you’re looking for an artist to do some bright and colourful work on your bod be sure to check her out (be sure to tell her I sent you!)

So how has your week been? You’ll have to excuse me, I’m now off to pack up my cowboy boots and to start practising my Southern drawl…

    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
