Thursday Treats: The Bearded Bad Ass

July 9, 2015

Guess who I hung out with this week?! The amazing Harnaam Kaur aka the Bearded Dame aka the flower beard bridal lady aka my new best bad ass friend! After I featured her shoot and I realised she lived in Slough, which is literally 20 minutes from where I live in Reading, I emailed her almost demanding that we meet for coffee. Well, that quick coffee turned into a four hour gossip sesh, shopping marathon and lunch date! Now only is she hella inspiring — I could listen to her talk for hours — but she’s totally hilarious, humble and just flat out lovely!

But the excitement didn’t stop there, in other news this week my baby sister Rachel got engaged!!! I’ll be honest, I’ve already been sending her links and ideas every single day and have started booking her wedding dress appointments with gusto! I’m trying not to get carried away but it’s hard not to. This is going to be the coolest, most awesome wedding ever!

Congratulations Rachel and Jamie! (Here they are modelling at the Photography Farm a couple of years ago – totally bride and groom material right!?)
