Happy Thursday babes! I hope you’ve all had a fabulous week, even if the weather has been as shithouse around your parts as it has been around mine. It’s definitely Autumn now huh!?

This past seven days I’ve basically been doing the same thing as last week – freaking out/ preparing for my talk at Way Up North and finishing issue 5 of the magazine. Not long now! We go to print next week and it’s on sale November 5th. I can’t wait for you to see the new issue, I’m probably going to say this every single time but I think it’s the best one yet. Yep, the excitement is real!

I don’t have a lot of links for you today. I’ve been spending most of my time manically working so I haven’t been mooching about online much, but a small selection of links is better than no links at all, right?

    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
