Summer is most definitely over, and while I’m not one of those people that gets super excited for ‘Fall’ (I think pumpkin spiced anything is gross) I am looking forward to being able to wear layers and for rocking dark, dark lipstick on a daily basis to be acceptable again!

This week has been pretty insane. Along with coming back from my trip and doing all the catch up involved with that, I’ve been finalising everything for the next issue of the magazine (on sale November 5th, put the date in your diary!) and preparing for Way Up North, a photography conference that I’m speaking at in Sweden in two weeks time. Eeek, what was I thinking!? 500+ photographers staring at me while I advise them on blogging? Not terrifying at all.

As it’s the first Thursday Treats in three weeks I have more than the usual number of links to keep you entertained. So grab an extra large cup of tea and dive right in to this bumper edition of internet loveliness!

From the bride, “As a little girl, I could only close my eyes and imagine what my wedding day would be like as I played dress up in a white princess dress, a veil and my ruby red slippers that Dorothy wore to go to a magical place. As I got older I always said I was waiting for my ‘movie moment’. Love will come into your life out of nowhere, and when it does, all of the other crap you went through will have been worth it. I promise! It CAN be like the movies! Here’s the proof.”
