My bestest friend is called Carly so I had an instant affinity to this bridal shoot when I saw it and found out the bride was called Carley (different spelling but same same.) The fact that it’s so damn cool is what makes it instantly blogable. Carley wore a David’s Bridal dress (style 5154, by Michaelangelo) and froliced around a beautiful purple garden for her bridal shoot with Oeil Photography.
My life is nuts. Nuts. I don’t exactly know how all this has happened but I’m doing the job I love, practically full-time, I’m getting featured in magazines, I’ve got people wanting to do photo shoots with me and now I’ve been featured in a new book by Emma Jones of Enterprise Nation all about 5-9ers – people like me who work a ‘day’ job and then in their spare time run their own business from home. Exciting huh?!
I guess I could even be seen as one of the success stories of the book, because I think I’m proof that working pretty much non-stop on something you really love so can really pay off. After doing two full-time jobs for what seems like forever, and with all your help my darling readers and sponsors, I’ve been able to cut down on my TV Producing job to focus on my Rock n Rollin’ job.
The book is a treasure trove of information about starting a business in your spare time and is a must-read for anyone who’s wanting to do the same (it even covers that ‘how to tell the boss’ bit!) I’m really looking forward to reading all the tips on blogging (and other online areas) as well as the variety of case studies – everyone from 5-9 cupcake makers, lawyers, online store owners, publishers, photographers and artists are included.
So why not grab a copy of ‘Working 5-9 : How to start your own business in your spare time‘, a book that will inspire, intrigue and motivate you no end if you’re wanting to do the same? At the moment is costs just £8.44 (usual price £12.99) so what are you waiting for?!?
This week’s Sunday lovin’ could only go to one pair of girlies. Emma & Laura of the way-too-fabulous, chic and uber cool Fur Coat No Knickers. Their beautiful store is filled to the rafters with amazing vintage dresses and if you’re on the hunt for a one-of-a-kind, genuine vintage gown then look no further! They are located in Kingsly Court, just off Carnaby St in London. I can’t reveal too much about why they’re my Sunday lovin’ gals this week…yet…but if you follow me on Twitter you may have pieced together a few sneaky left clues about what I’m up to next week. There is muchos excitements in Rock n Roll Bride land this coming week and I can’t wait to share it all with you…But until then go check out their website and blog, and even better, if you’re in London, go visit them in their gorgeous shop!
So THANK YOU to Emma & Laura for being so damn cool and lovely and sweet and adorable and Rock-n-bloomin’-Roll!
