Thursday Treats: Signing off Issue One!

December 18, 2014

issue 1 sneak peek1

It’s just one week until Christmas and I got the BEST gift of all yesterday. I went to Giraffe Media HQ, the publishers of my new magazine, to sign everything off and send the first issue to print! It was very The Devil Wars Prada but much more friendly… I arrived and was presented with ‘The Book’ – a mock up of how the magazine will look in a binder. Flipping through each page made it seem oh so real. I can’t bloody believe this thing is ACTUALLY going to be in the shops!

Issue one hits the shelves on January 8th and will be sold in WH Smiths, Morrisons and some independent newsagents. If you can’t find a copy locally, or you’re not in the UK, you can also purchase a subscription online (details of which I’ll be sharing as soon as it’s ready!) OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS ALL TOO EXCITING, roll on January 8th!

    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
