Intimate & Colourful Urban Farm Wedding

Sam and Jeremy’s colourful wedding took place on November 2, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana. They chose Paradigm Gardens, a cute little urban farm next to the interstate, as the venue. Sam wore a Chotronette dress while Jeremy was in a custom suit by Harper & Jones and in lieu of a large bridal party they each chose one ‘best person’.

All of their wedding suppliers were friends beforehand including their photographer, ceremony officiant and entertainment. And after their short ceremony, they celebrated with a small group of friends and family where they ate, drank and danced the night away to their favourite tunes from the 60s and 70s.

Get Ready Austin, The Blogcademy is Coming!

austin blogcademy

Today I’m off to Austin for the final US Blogcademy of 2013 – can you believe that? We’ve done a bunch of American dates this year which has been such an adventure, but I am really looking forward to hitting London after this – it’ll be nice not to have to get on a plane for once!

It’s my first time in Austin, although I have been to Texas before… well I had a layover in Fort Worth Airport once, nah it’s not really the same is it? The one thing I remember about it though was the HEAT. Waaah, Texas in August – are we mental?! I bloomin’ hope everywhere has air¬†con. I’ve packed lashings of factor 50, my giant Kate Spade floppy hat¬†and the lightest, airiest clothes I can get away with.

Dropping Hints

I’ve been dropping clues all week but Friday’s Instagram video might be the biggest one yet (I told you I was rubbish at keeping secrets). Be here tomorrow morning at 8am sharp (GMT) to find out for sure what I’ve been plotting. Although if you haven’t guessed it by now I don’t know how much more obvious I can be!

Dames in Disneyland

It seems like a lifetime ago, but just as I’m ramping up to¬†head off to America again this week, Made You Look Studios¬†sent over the photos from our Disneyland adventure in April. I’d never been before and on hearing this revelation Gala encouraged… nay insisted that they take me there for my birthday. Well who am I to turn down an invitation like that?!

Cosmopolitan Magazine’s Superbloggers Masterclass

Cosmo Careers Blogging Masterclass 004

On a soggy Spring evening Lisa and I headed to London. It was Tuesday, and the night of the Cosmopolitan Magazine Superbloggers Masterclass. I was thrilled, honoured and damn right nervous as hell to have been asked to join an illustrious panel of experts at this prestigious event. The masterclass was a complete sell-out, with two hundred enthusiastic wannabe bloggers braving wind and rain to make it to The British Museum for the two-hour panel discussion and Q&A.

This is my nervous and ‘omg that’s a big¬†auditorium’ face

I was cacking it. There was nothing cool about me as we took a peek into the empty¬†auditorium¬†and I¬†squeaked¬†to Lisa “Oh my god, that’s a lot of goodie bags…” We were the first to arrive and were ushered into a side room where we were soon met by the¬†Cosmopolitan¬†team and the rest of the panel.
