Fist up, to those of you that have ordered Rock n Roll Bride wedding planning notebooks or wall planners the first batch is being shipped out this week so you should have them really soon! I can’t wait to hear what you all think of them. If you haven’t got round to ordering yours yet, don’t worry there’s still time (we’ve extended ordering time indefinitely because we had such a great response to them.)

You can get your mitts on both the notebooks and wall planners (only £7.50 & £20 respectively) though the fabulous

In other news, I’ve been featured in this month’s Marie Claire Magazine (UK edition) in a feature about ‘Super Bloggers’ (!) I usually save my press showing off for the end of the month, but I’m so thrilled about this coverage that I wanted to do a little pimp right away! I haven’t actually seen it in real life yet but readers who have subscriptions say it looks awesome! A little tease for you…

How bloody exciting. Thank you Marie Claire!

First up a little reminder and some good news! The Rock n Roll planning notebooks and wallplanners are still available to buy through the fabulous We originally planned to limited the ordering until the end of June, however the response has been so phenomenal that Sugalily and I have decided to extend ordering time indefinitely.

Thursday Treats – 16th June 2011

Credit: Lime Crime Make Up

I made my first Lime Crime purchase this week. I’ll be honest, I was totally swayed by the pretty pink packaging and the fact that one of the lipsticks I bought was called ‘Airbourne Unicorn‘ – you know I need that in my life! I was also completely taken with the ‘Mint to Be‘, ‘New Yolk City‘ lipsticks from the latest ‘Pop Romance’ collection too too…but I think I might get some weird (well even weirder than usual) looks if I rocked these around town!

Lime Crime cosmetics are are not tested on animals & certified cruelty-free by PETA. So now I feel even better about my new purchases.

Also, must put a quick reminder about the Rock n Roll Bride wedding planning notebooks and 2012 wallplanners, which are available for purchase now. Thank you to everyone who’s bought one already, they’re pretty awesome huh?

So, apart from spending my hard-earned cash on pretties, here’s what else has been filling my mind this week…

In other news, I’m off to the US of A in August!! I literally couldn’t be more excited. I’m heading over the pond to do a little project with my girl Princess Lasertron and I’m bursting to get going. While we’re there (Yep, Gareth is coming too now we’re business partners and all) we’ll be hopping over to LA for a little holiday too, so if you’re in the area maybe we can hook up whilst we’re in town? America, are you ready for some Rock n Roll Bride all up in your faces?!

What? You want even more treats than that? Ahh go on then…

Thursday Treats – 2nd June 2011 + A Night Out in The ‘Ding

Credit: Via Audrey Kitching Coutureto promote her latest ‘Born to Rock’ range from her Tokyolux brand. I bought this adorable rainbow kitty tee and rainbow flower garland this week. Wooooo hurry up Mr Postman!

This week has been a relatively chilled one for me which has been all kinds of awesome…sometimes there’s nothing better than spending time with your husband, playing with your kitties, listening/dancing like a loon to the new Lady Gaga album (J’adore!)…oh and doing a bit of blogging. Although, in all honestly I needed a slightly less manic week after last weekend. Lucy and Debs came to visit me in Reading (hence the ‘ Ding nickname). Oh carnage doesn’t even cover it…

Thanks for the memories girls, and as Lucy so perfectly put on her blog post yesterday,

“Lastly I would just like to comment that although the wedding industry can show it’s fakery at times, you can also meet people that become some of the best friends you ever had.”

I bloody love you both and I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much. EVER. Or been so hungover for that matter… And for the record 6am is not an acceptable time to crawl home, no matter how Rock n Roll you think you are….Ouchy.
