A Sunday Kind of Love – Taking a Break from the Booze

This Week’s Love List…

♥ Brighton ♥ bacon & eggs sarnies ♥ sheds ♥ hanging out with horses ♥ honeymoon suites ♥ giant baths ♥ surprise takeaways (aww I love my husband) ♥ waking up hangover-free! ♥ kitty snuggles after being away ♥ the thought of not having to pack a suitcase for a while ♥

The Best of the Rest…

Something a little different and a little bit random for A Sunday Kind of Love this week…but a little thing I’ve been wanting to do for a while. Plus I figure if I announce it publicly I’ll be more likely to stick to it!

I’m giving up drinking for a month (I know OMG) but I’m actually surprisingly excited about the challenge. When you work from home it is all too easy to have a glass or two of wine every night…plus all these lovely industry events I keep getting invited too are always dripping in champers (oh it’s a hard life!) But seriously I do feel like my body needs a little break.

I’d love to be one of those naturally health-concious people – the kind that enjoy the gym and drink juice for breakfast…but nope, that’s definitely not me. Continue reading

I am a Secret Squirrel…

All will be properly revealed really soon, but needless to say I’m pretty darn excited about it. Could this be a Rock n Roll Bride Magazine? …And a FREE one at that?

If you want to find out exactly what’s been going on then you’ll need to come see me at the The Designer Vintage Bridal Show in Birmingham next weekend, where I’ll be handing out copies of this new little venture of mine for absolutely nadda. Tickets for the show can be purchased online here.

For more info on the show and what I’m going to be up to when I’m there, check out this post right here.

PS My designer Nubby deserves a flippin’ medal for all the work she’s put into this. She did actually say that this has turned into the biggest project she’s ever done and seriously baby, I couldn’t have done it without her.

A Sunday Kind of Love – Designer Vintage Bridal Show – October 8th & 9th

This Week’s Love List…

♥ a summary of travels by NoaPerfect Wedding ♥ champagne at lunchtime ♥ being too scared to try oysters ♥ goodie bags a go go! ♥ Sassi Holford‘s 30 years! ♥ new rainbow/my little pony hair! ♥ red bows ♥ photo shoot plans ♥ getting excited about The Farm ♥ two cups of coffee on the trot ♥ Charlotte Free’s amazing runway hair – gold leaf!) ♥

Best of the Rest…

Just a quickie post today to remind you that I, alongside a number of other wedding bloggers, will be at the Designer Vintage Bridal Show in Birmingham (UK) on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th October. I’ve got a few little treats planned and I’m even bringing Gareth & Roo along for this one. We’ll be like one big Rock n Roll Bride family!

I have to say the exhibitor list is immense and so many of my favourite suppliers are going to be there. I’m super excited! Some of the other exhibitors this year include Rachel Simpson ShoesThe Wedding ClubEmma Case Photography, Lucy Ledger Designs, Dottie Creations, Charlotte Casadejus, Magpie Vintage, Tobi Hannah, AVA Event Styling and Vintage Frocks ‘n’ Crocks.

In fact so immense that the show has had to be moved to a bigger and better venue to hold all these fabulous suppliers! The show will now be held at The Edgbaston County Cricket Ground, just a few minutes down the road from the original venue. Although this new venue looks contemporary from the outside, there is a whole team of amazing suppliers on board to dress up the rooms in a true vintage/Rock n Roll style. In fact I can’t wait to see what they do with it…I know it’s going to be super inspiring to see what can be done to a blank canvas type of space like this. Continue reading

Omaha Fashion Week – Guitars, Fire & Biting Flies…Just a Regular Photo Shoot with Princess Lasertron

After a well earned and strong coffee to settle our post-TV nerves, it was onto the next order of the day. A photo shoot! Told you I was busy didn’t I…?

The Photo Shoot

Megan had also arranged for me to do a photo shoot with local online magazine Esoteric Velvet (they also interviewed me which you can read here) to showcase her amazing dress. So after the TV slot we were whisked to Tru Salon & Spa where I was transformed into a cyber punk-esque goddess, complete with multi coloured dreadlock extensions, make up by a drag queen (I loved it – that dude knew how to do eye make up let me tell you!) and ripped up tights.

We then drove to what I can only describe as a deserted and slightly smelly field on the side of the freeway, complete with biting flies and a stagnant swamp. Oh the glamour huh!? I jest I jest.

The shoot was awesome and the team filled me with inspiration. I got to set fire to a guitar (well they did, I just posed and tried to concentrate on whether the heat I was feeling was coming from the blaring sun or the fire by my fingers) then release some pent up aggression and smash it up.

The shoot was super fun and the results are pretty damn wicked non? I’m in AMERICA baby!

Omaha Fashion Week – Behind the Scenes at my American TV Debut

After the whirlwind of walking the catwalk at Omaha Fashion Week you’d think I might deserve a rest no? Well erm…no apparently I didn’t. The following morning we were up bright and early for another busy day!

The TV Appearance

As most of you will have already seen, Megan & I were invited onto The Morning Blend breakfast show to talk about fashion week and blogging/Rock n Roll Bride. I sure will have woken up some sleepy Nebraskans with my pink ensamble huh!? Gareth took some behind the scenes type photos while we were there. And if you haven’t watched the segment yet (I seriously cringe every time I watch it back but hell, I was on American telly yo! Who cares if I fluffed up a few answers and misread the damn auto cue?!…) you can see it here!
