A few of my favourite things

Welcome to a brand new week people. I hope your weekend was relaxing and fun. I've had a relatively quiet one which was definitely needed!

Here's my Monday Medley of things I've found interesting and/ or pretty...


this article in The Guardian by journalist and bride to be Jude Rogers about bridezillas and the royal wedding. Is an interesting read and gives Rock n Roll Bride a mention. Let me know what you think.

the dress

I think I'd go so far as to say this is one of the finest wedding dresses I have ever seen. It's irridescent, sparkly, floaty and just damn gorgeous.

wedding hair inspiration

I've got a bit of a thing for plaits although now I have a fringe they don't look so good. They're perfect wedding hair however, unfussy yet keep crazy wayward hair like mine in check so they're perfect for brides that don't want to worry about their hair all day long.

These styles are fairly mental - I'd love to see a bride wear her hair like this...

or like this, although you might have to use fake flowers as real ones might look a bit wilted by the evening...

Who says your wedding hair style has to be predictable eh?

cheap and cosy lighting

This time last year I blogged about this rather awesome fairy lights in bottle idea. I love cheap and inventive ideas like this. Must get round to trying to make these this year.

interior design

Oh how I would love a bookcase like this...

xmas card

And finally, I'm not really a sending cards kind of gal but if I was, I would send this little bad boy out.


  1. Oh my word, I LOVE that dress. Shame I'm already married - maybe I could just get it to laze around the house in? It's absolutely beautiful - love that second shot especially.


  2. All lovely finds, and that dress! What more could a girl want, floaty and sparkly it's so pretty! I'm also loving plaits and shame I'm not getting married as I think I'd well be sporting some kind of plaited do.

  3. @London Bride - I can definitely see you in plaits when you get married.

    And yes ladies, glad you agree that dress is da bomb.

  4. love the dress and the hair. i had a little braid in my hair - loved it. happy monday, stay warm!

  5. One of my brides used fresh flowers in her hair and they stayed 'fresh looking' all day long! Flowers were little baby pink roses. It's just the matter of knowing what types of flowers stay fresh longer without water :)


Thank you lovely people for leaving a comment...
