First of all I have to start by saying O.M.G how awesome is this image sent to me by Kirsty Mitchell (and yes the bow was really that big) If you haven’t seen her work before then go check out her Flickr – amazing doesn’t even cover it! The make up was done by Elbie Van Eeden and I just loooove it.
So what else has been going on? Well I’ve been frantically trying to get on top of all this bloggy goodness plus writing magazine articles (not that I’m complaining!) plus looking forward to the designer wedding show. On that note, thanks to everyone who entered the contest to win 2 free tickets. U used a random number generator to pick the winner and it is (dum dum duuuuuum)
“Oh my, now that my fiance and I have set a date it would be amazing to go to this and get some ideas!! Fabulous site by the way, thank you for providing something for those of us who want something different”
Woo. Send me an email with your address so I can get the tickets posted to you. Everybody else, if you still want to come tickets cost just £16 when bought in advance (and I think £18 on the door) so I hope to see some more of you there on the Friday.
Okey dokey, on with this show that we call Thursday Treats – hurrah!
♥ This week, the uber cool Dana of the Broke Ass Bride fame asked me to write a guest post for her, so I took the opportunity to contact some of my all time favourite wedded couples to ask them about their broke ass/rock n roll wedding days

#It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…#
Specially outside my front door, as it is currently snowing…woo! Will we finally have a white Christmas this year? That would certainly be awesome indeed. Let’s see what I’ve been spending my time doing this past 7 days shall we?
♥ The wonderful Gala Darling is one of my biggest blogging inspirations. She wrote this letter to me (well to all her readers, but it’s so poignant to me and how I’m feeling right now that it might as well have been addressed to moi) to let us know how great we are. It totally made my week so I have to share it with you too. Be sure to listen to the audio version, where she reads it in her cute kiwi accent. I heart her. Thanks you Ms Darling!
♥ My SEO article was featured in the UK website, Enterprise Nation, which is all about the 5-9er – i.e people who work full time jobs but run their own business after hours – that’s me alright! Thanks to Emma for the feature
♥ The Broke Ass Bride website has had a glamorous makeover! Dana has worked stupendously hard to revamp her already stonkingly popular blog.
♥ Why fewer blog comments aren’t a bad thing
♥ Being in the UK, the new FTC announcement for sponsorship transparency doesn’t apply to me. However this article has persuaded me that writing one may be the best blogging decision I could make.
♥ We bought kittens! We have to wait until February 7thto get them because they are still only a monthand a month and a half old. I love them so much already! The one on the left is a boy and the one on the right is a girl. The are Maine Coons and will be heeeuge when they grow up (check out the girl’s daddy!) Any help with names will be greatly appreciated. Want to see more piccies?

Nom nom nom…yum yum yum…and all that. I’ve searched the web so you don’t have to. Savour and enjoy
♥ ‘Love pops up’ in this cute Vegas-style temporary chapel
♥ Blogging: A Community or a Business?

♥ Mel of Milena Organic Hair Studios in Newtown Australia specializes in amazing retro, pin up, rockabilly, rock n roll and generally amazing hair styling! She is offering one lucky Rock n Roll Bride reader a $100 voucher at her uber cool salon. Go check out her website then just drop her an email mentioning Rock n Roll Bride for your chance to snag it!
♥ The lovely lovely Abbey of Sugalily sent me a little gift of love in the post this week! It’s a custom ‘Kat’ necklace from her new range of ‘Tattoo my Heart’ stationary which is launching soon. How cute! I am so excited to have a sneak peak. Thank you Abbey!
I have just discovered a new (to me, she has been blogging since 1998 or something ridiculous) blog that has inspired me more than anything I have seen in a long while. Not in any kind of theological or remotely deep way but in a fashion kind of way! This girl dresses just as I should! There are the obvious hair similarities between the two of us, but quite apart from that I find her style and wit so totally captivating!
I can see this is not so wedding-related…however the image to accompany this post could surely make for some amazing bridal style?!
Oh and quite apart from my shallow reasons for adoring my new find, iCING (the name of the site) has articles on anything you might want to know, from how to start a blog right the way through to how to get a non-rubbish tattoo…be warned you could spend hours on here!
