Wednesday’s Workaholics Anonymous.

Is it me or is Wednesday everyone’s busiest day?

I’m not sure what it is exactly but I always seem to be right in the middle of everything but not actually finishing anything, housework, work work, blog work, trying to find time to get my lazy backside down the gym……

And it seems I have a whole load of lovely stuff and lovely people to post about on Rock My Wedding and um, no-where to actually put it. So I figured this afternoon lovelies we could all do with a little break (from W-day planning, life planning, catching up on a gazillion emails…) and just have a little click around all that is delicious on the world wide web.

So Wednesday afternoon is offically a Workaholics Anonymous meeting and that means one thing you gorgeous lot, put your feet up, have a rest and BROWSE. We promise you will all find at least one little something that tickles your fancy.

First things first. Yesterday was Independent Woman’s Day and we shared a little RMW poster love with Aisling and Claire’s blog Anyotherwedding. And for anyone that is feeling not only over worked but also under confident then please please just repeat the following community mantra:

The Cinderella Story. Do you want it? I’d say here was a 100% hands up “yes” for the Happily Ever After bit at the end right? Well then, how about the rest of it? Read Anna K’s frankly brilliant piece on how we should all move towards a more modern fairytale. It will really really make you think.

Orange and Yellow blooms in a turquoise can rock my world. That’s all I’m saying.

I am obsessed with jeans. I am obsessed with make-up. Now MAC have gone and made some cool cosmetics in denim shades. You know I am at the glossy counter tomorrow on a spree right?

You may remember English Rose RMW bride Elizabeth and she was just the sweetest and happiest girl to be married. Elizabeth now has her own place in Weddingville called Bridal Musings and she discovered this great blog called “Moments Junkie“. Go take a look, I for one am officially converted.

If you’ve still not had enough pretty this week then Chelsea and Brandon’s W-day may just sustain you. Think ruffles. Think picture perfect bride.

The RMW team can’t get enough of over-head decor, as in lanterns and poms and floral fancies….. take a look at this bunch of inspirational ideas if you are still contemplating the final touches.

Because sometimes black tie evening glamour makes for the most beautiful big day.

Jonas Peterson is one of Rebecca’s all time favourite photographers. If you take a look at Salma and Ziyaads’ Brisbane W-day I think you’ll see why. He’s now also one of mine.

Have you featured on or followed RMW? Are you one of our fabulous community? Well I’m thinking so as you’re here! Kirsty of A Safe Mooring is and she has our brand new “Rock My Wedding Bride” badge. Email if you would like one for your blog too!

Fairy Lights and Feather Choo’s. I want BOTH.

Simply stunning florals and maids. Lou from Whimsical Wedding Wonderland showcased one of the loveliest 60’s inspired spring weddings ever. Bring on the tulips folks.

I need to announce the winners of the Rosie Willet Comp! third place and winning a gorgeous necklace is Joey D, second and winning an entire jewellery collection is Lauren (9.53am!) and in first place and now the proud owner of a Darcy headpiece AND lots of sparkly bits is Abbi B. Congratulations!! We’ll be in touch soon with details on how to collect your prize!

Cowboy boots, fruity flavours and without doubt one of the most insanely beautiful bouquets I have ever seen. We die.

Because sometimes you just need to lose yourself in out-of-this-world photography.

We went and got some new ABOUT PAGE images. Hope you lot like ’em.

  1. Oh dear… i’m a bad enough procrastinator as it is, but this! this doesnt help, but thank you anyway because its a beautiful… and who am i kidding, i want going to do the laundry today anyway!

  2. Love love love the “black tie evening glamour”!! Thanks for making the last part of my working day go just that bit quicker!

  3. I love these posts. They necessitate an evening in in my PJs, fast internet connection and mint Aero, to get through all the links of pretty.

    Really glad you enjoyed the fairytale piece! I am a sucker for a flawed heroine.

    Any Other Wedding yesterday was the best place in the blogosphere to be. Honestly. The posts were by turns surprising and fulfilling and shocking and bittersweet and joyous and, ultimately, liberating. More, please, ladies. Like, now. Get on it.

  4. Have just spent ages reading through the posts on Any Other Wedding and One Cat Per Person. I feel so blessed to have access to the amazing writings of so many women. So much of it echoes my own thoughts but I could never write it so beautifully and eloquently as they have.

    My grandmother passed away two weeks ago and she was the most amazing woman I and the 650 people (yep, you heard me, 650!)who attended her funeral have ever known. She would have loved reading all the posts yesterday and would definitely have got a kick out of Anna K’s fab post. She was also a RMW fan and was always showing me lots of pretty from the site in prep for our big day in December.

    I vote we make every day a lil bit more like yesterday and embrace our sisterhood 🙂

  5. Ooohhh. Love this post. Not sure my boss would though.

    Must. Do. Some. Work.

    Adore Elizabeth’s Bridal Musings blog and I can just tell that the Moments Junkie site is going to be added to my list of daily websites to look at!

    Could go on and say what else I like, but hell… I love all of the click throughs!


  6. Oh my flip! Is that me?! I literally cannot tell you how excited I am to be a winner! When I read that, I was on the bike at the gym (using iPhone at gym, naughty naughty) and now I’m in the crazy stepper machine and I’m buzzing, I feel like I could step up and down on this thing all day – but I won’t! Thank you so much!

    Enough excitement – great post as always, loving all the pretty!

  7. Oh you lovely lovely lot….

    Thank you! From Clare and I at Any Other Wedding and Angie at One Cat Per Person too. It was an absolute honour to have all you amazing women reading and writing for us.


  8. So much to love and look at – these posts are the best!

    All of the any other wedding posts for international womans day were so inspiring! Well done girlies!

    Loved that insanely beautiful bouquet too! xo

  9. Ahhh is that me?!! Did I win?? I had to go and check the posts for the competition in case there was another Abbi B… I think it’s me! So excited! Thank you thank you thank you!


  10. Thanks so much for the mention Charlotte! My “I’m a RMW Bride” badge is looking all shiny and lovely, hope to see it popping up all over blog land soon.

    Thanks also for the shout-out to In Her Own Words – I was completely honoured to take part in it and all the other women who posted were truly inspirational. Feeling very proud to be a woman right now!

  11. I dont use this word at all, but Chelsea and Brandon’s w-day and the black tie w-day were just D-I-V-I-N-E!

    Thank you Charlotte for giving me even more reason to not do what I should be doing this evening!


  12. Anna K- you need a dose of Worship! Fab, clever, insightful lady!

    Everytime I teach my year one’s about fairytales I completely tear them apart, telling the children about how Sleeping Beauty should’ve bloody well changed her fate, or that Cinders should’ve told Step mother to jog on!! (but in more teachery tones you understand.)

    Fab. Post.

  13. I was literally holding my breath looking at Chelsea and Brandon’s photographs. Stunning. And very happy with my fiance choice to be in a tux for our wedding day having seen that black tie show stopper!!
