Two very different wedding styles : white vs pink

You guys know I am a fan of the pink – of course! – but I can obviously also appreciate the minimal styles and when it comes to weddings I love them both equally.

Here are two different styles from recent inspiration….

Rock n Roll News

Rock n Roll Bride Mag 2

Oh my lord! I am super excited about this news and cannot wait to share with you guys. The amazing Kat from Rock n Roll Bride and of course Rock n Roll Bride Magazine has included a Wink DIY in the latest magazine! 5 minute cake topper ideas are a great way to get creative but in a short space of time because we all know how busy brides to be are! I can’t wait to show you more from this Dream Come True!

A huge thanks as well to my right hand girl Natalie Morgan Photography for the photos of my DIY.

The Blogcademy 2014 – Lessons Learnt Pt 2

The Blogcademy 2014 - Auckland

The Blogcademy Auckland 2014

As you know I attended (and styled) The Blogcademy in Auckland at the end of last year and it was really an amazing couple of days for me. I had wanted to attend the first time round but had some prior commitments so when I heard the team were coming back I blocked out my calendar so I could head along and soak up the inspiration.

Here are my top three takeaways from the course.

The Blogcademy Auckland 2014

As well as getting amazing content, inspiration and tips and tricks, one of the best things about The Blogcademy is getting to mingle and chat with the other attendees. The odds are these guys are very similiar to you – whether they have a blog, are new to blogging and want to be inspired or are old hands at the practice. The thing you will find you have in common is a passion for creativity, a desire to fill yourself with knowledge and a yearning to be your own boss and do something great. Now a room full of these locals makes for an awe inspiring two days – you can imagine!

This is why getting out and networking is such a great takeaway. Being behind a computer is all very well but getting out into the real world and chatting and plotting/planning/dreaming with other people just like you is such a great thing and should be on everyone’s to do list for the year.

The Blogcademy Auckland 2014

A great takeaway from all three headmistresses is that you have to do the work to get to where you want to be. All three started in a place where the gift they wanted to share with the world was coming from a place of love and passion. It seems really easy to start something big or momentous when you are really excited about what you are talking about – think about writing the first chapter of that book, making the first DIY for your upcoming wedding or the first blog post. But beyond that you have to push through, you have to consistently publish and research and write or design or create – and do the work.

My final – and favourite – takeaway from The Blogcademy is simply to be yourself and tell your story. The headmistresses really emphasised that they are where they are today because of their unique point of view. They didn’t try to be someone else, to promote things they weren’t passionate about or didn’t care for – they were strictly on point with who they were and what they wanted to say. You are the only you there is and your angle or your take on the world is something people might be interested in – so give it a go and let your personality and weirdness shine through!

PS you can take The Blogcademy online now so no excuses not to go!

Oh my goodness I am absolutely thrilled to let you know that you can find Wink today over on Rock n Roll Bride showing you how to make the prettiest ever DIY Polaroid banner!

A Little Bright - Wink Rock n Roll Bride DIY 2

You might remember from my Blogcademy roundup Pt 1 that I created a custom Polaroid banner to hang as part of the decor at the Auckland event at the end of last year. I thought it was a super sweet way to show off all the girls amazing Instagram photos and it turned out to be really easy to create. Kat invited me to share the how to with her readers and I was lucky enough to shoot this whole beautiful DIY with my favourite Natalie Morgan Photography to bring the DIY to life.

As everyone who is anyone knows, the best bit about being involved – in any way – with The Blogcademy is the amazing Headmistresses. I wanted to share with you what Kat, Gala and Shauna had to say about Wink because it really was the icing on the cake for me. I had the most fantastic time and getting these kind words was just fantastic.
