Look at these gorgeous flowers from @wildaboutflower We're getting ready for our house warming party tomorrow... Its supposed to be a garden party but the weather is looking ☂ However we're having an (accidental) tropics Vs unicorn theme so these actually suit it perfectly!
One of the most fun things about having a new house - finding out where the best selfie light is! I'm also loving my new @Swatch. I haven't worn a watch in YEARS because I didn't want anything to cover up my ink, but I think the colour of this one actually works really well with my tattoos. #YOURMOVE, #SwatchSKIN, #ad
Omg @whimsicalcake1 sent us the CUTEST unicorn themed treats for our house warming party on Sunday! Unboxing on my stories (complete with Rachel taking ownership of the box they came in ). I'll share everything properly when I set it all up on Sunday but omg SO CUTE.
Smoke bombs and sparkles!! You are SO going to want to check out the New Year's Eve wedding on the blog today. That dress! The décor! Her Harry Potter inspired jacket! It's all TOO DAMN GOOD.

I am BEYOND EXCITED to let you all know that @helenanderz and @maffewchip's incredible wedding is going to be featured in our next issue (on sale September 7th)! I can not WAIT to share all the colourful, fun details and the full wedding story. YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE IT and HELL YES there was a Ferris Wheel! Photo by @emilytylerphoto#rocknrollbridemagazine
Like every other 30-something white girl I am totally OBSESSED with marble, so you can imagine how UTTERLY THRILLED I am with my new desk... The best part is it cos me £2.50!!!! Yes, you read that right!
My secret is that it's not marble at all but marble effect vinyl that I bought from Wilko and used to upcycle my old desk!
We moved house yesterday!! Yes, we're pretty much living in a building site now but we COULD NOT BE HAPPIER.
People keep saying to us "Oh it'll be so nice when it's done" but we honestly think it's so nice now haha! Having double the floor space... Having a garage for all our junk...Looking out over an enormous mature garden... Being able to create our dream home from the ground up! The light in this place is stunning too which makes me so joyful you have NO IDEA.
We're so flipping excited and grateful that we have this opportunity. I never thought I'd be able to live in a house like this, or trust myself enough to take on a project of this scale, but we're doing it together and it's so exciting #rocknrenovation

My sister in law has opened a vintage shop in Harris Arcade in Reading! If you live here you should go check it out. She also sells cute mermaid crowns and these epic make up brushes! Of course I had to buy some! @georginasvintage
I just put a blog post up about our new advertising option for wedding businesses. Its something BRAND NEW and you're gonna wanna know about this! Go check it out on the blog right nowwwwww #rocknrollbridemagazine
I can't believe we're moving into the new house on MONDAY! I'm not gonna lie, things are preeeeetty stressful right now but thank God I'm married to the most amazing man. He's literally doing everything while I keep up with work (I suspect mostly because he doesn't want me interfering but fine - ha) I'm SOOOO ready to start buying new furnishings but I have a feeling that might be quite a while off for now! #rocknrenovation
If you would have told me six months ago that I'd be stripping and painting rooms I never would have believed you (for context I've never so much as hung a picture on the wall myself!) But I've just finished the walls of my office in the new house and look how great it looks! Now to think about the fun stuff... Like finding the perfect neon sign to go over the fireplace #rocknrenovation
I need to be honest with you. I’ve fallen out of love with my blog. Not completely, we’re not breaking up or anything, but we’re having a moment.
Unless you’ve been living on Mars, you won’t have failed to notice that blogging has changed a lot in the past few years. Instagram, YouTube, Facebook groups… there are so many more enticing and easier ways to connect and share with people online. In fact many of my favourite bloggers aren’t even publishing content on their own platforms anymore!
Let’s face it, blogging is hard. You have to put a lot in and sometimes you’ll get next to nothing back. You spent hours writing a post for it to get one measly comment whereas you put a photo and a cute caption on Instagram and it gets 1500 likes.

Sixties psychedelia meets Lana Del Rey meets American Gothic... Go check out the full wedding on the blog right now, you won't regret it!

I still can't believe we own this pile of bricks Things have been utterly NUTS trying to get as much work done as possible before we move in (less than two weeks to go!) so the renovation blog has taken a bit of a back seat. It's still coming (promise!) we just need to find some time to start the damn thing.
I'd love to know what kind of posts you'd like to see when it does launch though. Personal stories and photos updates? Advice? Sharing products and things we've been using? All of the above? Hit me in the comments with your suggestions! #rocknrenovation
So @chotronette just released the first set of images from their brand new collection and I'm a little bit... No scrap that...I'm A LOT DEAD. Wow. Just woooow. I'll share more about the new collection when it's ready but #holyshit
It's a little while off, but we just got submitted thisINCREDIBLE wedding to feature in our Sept/Oct issue and I'm dying a thousand deaths over how cute and amazing everything is. I can't wait for you all to see it! #rocknrollbridemagazine#tattooedbride#pinkweddingdress
I can't even tell you how much I love this man. It's midnight and while I'm dozing off on the sofa he's at our renovation house packing magazines so we can start shipping all your pre-orders out tomorrow on schedule... Not to mention the fact that he was also there all day today pulling up floorboards, laying joists (which he taught himself to do by watching YouTube videos!) and installing electrical sockets. Last night he drove us the 3+ hours home from the wedding while I slept in the passenger seat.
People always tell me they "Don't know how I do it"... How I achieve so much with the business without a huge team behind me. Well I don't need a huge team because I've got the best teammate right by my side.
He stays behind the scenes and doesn't like a fuss but fuck me he works so damn hard. It's a ridiculous cliché but I couldn't do ANY OF THIS without him.
Gareth, you are amazing. I appreciate you. I love you now and forever and ever.
