Oh my God, I’m BACK! I know it’s a terrible cliché but these past two weeks have been a whirlwind of epic proportions. From Reading to Santorini to Mykonos to London (where we taught two back-to-back
workshops no less, what were we thinking?!) Gala, Shauna and I haven’t had much time to rest, but we’ve had the time of our lives in the process.
It already feels like a million years ago but on the flight to Greece Gala informed us that she wanted to make some home videos to commemorate our trip (yey!) What ensued was a mix of stupidity, sailing and a mammoth sunglasses trying on session…
After three days in Oia (the most beautiful place I’ve ever visited – by far!) we hopped on a ferry to Mykonos for some much needed R&R. We stayed at the utterly beautiful
Grace Hotel (AKA paradise) and believe me when I say I don’t think I’ve ever stayed in a hotel so fabulous. The pool alone made it worth the terrible (and rocky) four hour boat trip!
Most of our fellow hotel guests were honeymooners. If you fancy the Greek Islands for your honeymoon you
have to stay here, just tell them the girl with the pink hair sent you. I do wonder what the staff and other guests made of us though. The three excitable girls who rocked up all sequins and tattoos certainly made an impression!
We also had an unexplainable obsession with Club Tropicana during this part of the holiday, hence why it ended up being the song in this video. Warning: it
will be in your head all day after watching this. Sorry in advance…
But on to the real reason why you popped by today – Thursday Treats. Prepare yourself for a bumper edition…! I mean, I did promise you one didn’t I?!
So, did you miss me?

Greetings from Heathrow airport! Terminal 3 does feel like it's become a home away from home for me recently. I actually quite like being here, especially as I have my airport routine down. I know which security line is likely to be the quickest (always wait with the single people with briefcases, even if the queue is slightly longer - never get stuck behind a family!) where to get the best deal on currency and who does the most delicious breakfasts (it's Rhubarb by the way...)
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!

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.

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!

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.

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.
