Well with names like that these three intrepid, enterprising, exciting, wacky, fun and fantastic companies all run by women must surely grab your attention!
All three are on Twitter and that's how I became aware of their fantastic businesses.
I'm relatively new to Twitter but currently have the pleasure of tweeting with Duncan Bannatyne of Dragons Den fame, Andy Murray (although he doesnt tweet much) and Ben Bradshaw to namedrop a few........... If you want to be one of my followers tweet @soapchickuk and say hi or follow the link on this page - it's fun.
Best of all I have made some really good contacts for the business particularly people who live locally. I went and visited a new photographic studio in Exmouth called "Exmouth Studios" funnily enough - run by Edd King and Claire Sloan they have taken over a lovely old building, done it up beautifully and are offering a wide variety of service from portraits to photo printing (they have a very large photo printer). The studio is located in the old Red Cross Hall on South Street in Exmouth, opposite the side of the Blackmore Theatre. Post code for sat nav is: EX8 2SA. They are a very friendly bunch but don't just take my word for it, go and say hello - Edd makes a wicked cup of tea!
Anyway, I digress. I wanted to tell you more about the three linked businesses I have met on Twitter. They all have something to do with weddings.
Rock n Roll Brides is run by Kat Williams who runs a bridal service with a difference, in her own words
"my aim is to provide a little haven of kick ass weddingness in the overly poofy, pastel and often puke-worthy wedding world. If you’ve ever picked up a bridal magazine and felt queasy, or trawled the internet and felt disheartened by what you didn’t find, well my friend you are in the right place!"
My kind of girl - her blog is excellent (click the link above) its funny, fully of brilliant photos and ideas, I really recommend you have a look. I was so chuffed when she featured my cupcakes recently. Kim has also featured another two wonderful businesses Rockabetty Studios and Restoration Cakes on her blog.
Rockabetty Studios who specialise in wonderful photo shoots with fab vintage clothes and accessories with the aim of turning any bored housewife or working girl into a stunning glamor puss!! Its a picture of Charlotte Gamble of Restoration Cakes whose celebration cakes have a stunning vintage feel and will really bring that WOW factor to your party or wedding. Do take the time to visit these three ladies sites, I promise you will not be disappointed.
I now need to go away and count up the pennies, I would sooooo love to have one of those studio shoots, I am the most non photogenic person in the whole world, if they could make me look even one tenth as good as Charlotte I would be amazed!!
