Hello from Holland!
After the most amazing few days in Berlin, we touched down in Amsterdam yesterday afternoon. So far we’ve really only had time to grab some supplies (browsing foreign supermarkets might just be one of my favourite past times though!) and to catch up on some work, so I am beyond excited to explore the city today and tomorrow.

This weekend we do our final European Blogcademy workshop of the year. The class is pretty packed already but if you wanted to sign up last minute, we can totally squeeze you in. We promise lots of sparkle, a killer goodie bag and two days overflowing with invaluable blogging and business education!

But for now, I’ll leave you with the internet lovelies that have kept me entertained over the past seven days.

    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
