Sneak Peek: Reverie Magazine

Cover Image credit: Our Labour of Love

I’m taking the opportunity today to share some sneaky peek images from the forthcoming issue of Reverie magazine, out this Thursday. You might all remember me gushing about how fabulous I thought it was and also my joining up with them to provide a monthly lifestyle post as their resident lifestyle expert. You can read my inaugural post here.

The new issue launches on Thursday when you’ll be able to feast your eyes on stunning weddings featuring Our Labor of Love, Joel Serrato, Lisa Lefkowitz, Leo Patrone, Aaron Delesie, Elizabeth Messina, Jodie Chapman, Sarah Gawler, Polly Alexandre, Ashton Jean-Pierre and many more. There is also plenty of pretty in the form of bridal fashion and wedding details, many of which transfer to celebrating your everyday life if you’re not planning a wedding!

For now all I’ll say is, you saw it here first and you’ll be seeing a little more from me when the issue itself launches with a special feature from Florence Finds!


Found: Reverie Magazine…

This morning I have something that’s for my readers who followed me from Wedding-ville. Although many of you are married, I know lots of you are planning as I write and so this one is especially for you. (Of course I know that those of you who are already married will enjoy this as much as I did but we can keep that between the two of us.) 😉

I’d like to introduce you to the stunningly beautiful new online Wedding magazine, Reverie

Launched last week as a collaboration between Mary Lee Herrington and Kate Taylor, of Forever and Ever Events and Coquette Paper and Press respectively, this is a magazine that will blow your socks off visually but also has robust and beautifully written content to back the images up.

With a curated selection of weddings ranging from a Smogg Shoppe colour-fest photographed by Max Wanger, to Elegant outdoor affairs and even an eco-chic wedding at Rover Cottage catered by Hugh Fearnley-Whittenstall, there is eye-candy a-plenty.

It doesn’t stop there though with ‘get the look’ style pages helping you add similar style to your day. And if you’re no longer a planning bride? Apart from the pretty there’s lots of lifestyle ideas, including photography, interiors (Okay, so it’s a gift list piece, but since when did purchases for the home stop with your wedding vouchers?) Definitely not when they’re this stylish. There are even beauty tips for a flawless face in there.

Honestly, I’m in love.

Congratulations to all of those involved and especially Mary and Kate for all their hard work – it paid off ladies!

Now I’d love you to tell me what you think… have you read Reverie? Just found it? I know Mary and Kate would love to hear what you think…


Saturday Survey

Happy Weekend readers!

This weekend I’m getting away for some R&R with Pete for the start of his 30th birthday celebrations next week. While I’m away, I hope you guys will get a moment to comment on the Survey series I started last week. This week we’re focusing on fashion and don’t forget this is your chance to have your say and tell me what you would like to see here on Florence Finds. Thank you so much for stopping to fill it in and I hope you enjoy my five things this week 🙂

Five things:

Firstly, a new addition to the site… the subscribe button in the right hand side bar. Here’s where you can sign up to receive a weekly round up email into your inbox once a week (we won’t bombard you with email junk I promise!) and keep up to date with all of Florence’s posts. Gemma’s going to be taking care of this and let me tell you, the draft round up she prepared was brilliant – don’t miss out on exclusive Florence news and firsts, sign up today 🙂

My two latest lipstick purchases – Mac’s ‘Lady Danger’ (matte orange-red) and ‘Impassioned’ (intense neon coral pink)

I found a new online magazine to fall in love with… 91 Magazine. There seem to be more and more online mags popping up but what I loved about this one was its heavy lean towards interior style and the crafting theme throughout. This is no glossy full of aspirational style, but affordable, DIY and achievable inspiration. Go take a look!

Started a bit of new season wardrobe reassessment and was pleased to find how much nude and faded neon I had ready to wear!

Did you enter the Mr & Mrs Smith Giveaway yet? Entries close at Midnight on Sunday – look out for the winner on Monday!

Five Questions:

  1. Within the Fashion category (in the menu above) which is your favourite type of post? (i.e. New collections from individual designers or shops; The Fash Flash – round ups of pieces for a specific trend or Outfits?)
  2. How much would you normally spend on clothes in a month?
  3. Quality or quantity? (Do you prefer trend led disposable fashion at lower prices or classic well made pieces and fewer of them? Do you ever splurge on designer/higher end goods?)
  4. Have you bought anything featured on Florence Finds?
  5. Would you want to hear about discounts and offers (and if so how – on the blog/twitter/facebook/emails?)

Just copy and paste these five questions into the comments box and add your responses. Thanks so much in advance!

Have a great weekend everyone!


Found: Dashing Magazine…

Billed as an inspirational magazine for the stylish and spirited girl, Dashing Magazine launched last Friday. In the spirit of sharing things I have found and LOVE, I just had to make sure those of you outside the wedding industry and of course my lovely readers, knew about this beautifully put together online magazine.

Jointly edited by Charley Beard of London Bride, Josie Hendricks of Savoir Weddings and Fanni Williams of FuBuMedia, the content spans fashion, interiors, crafty DIY features, events and styling with a couple of more thoughtful editorial pieces thrown in by writer extraordinaire Emma Woodhouse and Wedding blogger Anna, of Anna and The Ring.

The design is beautiful and exactly up my street, clean as a whistle but with splashes of colour all over it, great use of typography and a well accented layout. There’s a wedding section too naturally, given that all three editors have an interest in the wedding industry, featuring real weddings and styling tips.

My favourite bits?

Without doubt, the breath-taking examples of illustrator Cate Parr‘s work, (which you can see introduced above.)
The Downloadable Christmas card – perfect for your most stylish girlfriends.
The edited ‘finds’ including Etsy sellers, and the Dashing team’s favourite spots this month.

As an inaugural special issue, I for one certainly can’t wait to see the next one! Do let me know if you have already seen and loved it, or are just discovering Dashing?

Congratulations Dashing!
