Thursday Treats: Palm Springs or Bust

January 30, 2014



Ahhh! I leave for Palm Springs on Monday and I am SO EXCITED. I don’t mean to rub it in or anything but it’s currently topping out at 30 degrees over there and I for one can’t wait to get my bootie in some sunshine. I wish I was just there to lounge by the pool but there is a slight work element involved, all of which will be revealed in due course (jeez, what a tease).

Don’t forget you can also join us (virtually!) for a FREE online party on Sunday 9th February at 11am PST/ 2pm EST/ 7pm GMT! Remember to get those blogging or business questions in to us and we’ll do our best to answer as many as physically possible.

I’ll see you there!

    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
