Sponsors and Schnitzels: Updates of All Sorts

By 1 No tags Permalink 0

Very exciting news: My favorite things to have between my legs for more than an hour or two are now sponsors of Marvelous-Darling.com... BANDELETTES! If you recall my review, in which I extolled the virtues of these practical but sexy little numbers, then you know why I'm so excited. Bandelettes are pretty new on the market, and I'm really thrilled to be working with them; I believe that they have what it takes to be a fixture in the world of lingerie. Go check them out! Something that's really cool about Germany is that things I wouldn't even consider consuming in the US ...

DuoLingo! Or: How I Trick Myself into Learning German

First of all, I'm sorry Mother-in-Law! We've busted out the language software a time or two, but we've found ourselves completely addicted to DuoLingo. Have you thought about learning Spanish, French, German, Italian, or another language? Maybe you don't want to shell out for (or pirate) Rosetta Stone, or you just don't think you want to learn that way. Sometimes, when I'm purposely sitting down to learn something, my brain either shuts off, or decides it would be a much better time to polish my nails or read a murder mystery. Or watch SVU. I have bad taste. DuoLingo is different in many ways, ...

Jet-setting or JeJoue: You can now choose Travel or NSFW!

If you've been reading my blog at all lately, you'll know that I have an amazing opportunity coming up: I'm moving to Kiel, Germany, with my new husband. Up until now, I've mostly niched my blog as a sex toy review blog, with some splashes of real life, dating, and ranting. That's fine. But I really, really want to share all of my new adventures with you. So, to make that easier, I'm splitting my posts up into Safe for Work and Not Safe For Work categories. Want to read about my life abroad but not my ever growing toy collection? If you're ...

Little by Little

It feels like this entire wedding/moving process is taking forever, but it's really coming up fast. The wedding is 16 days away, and we still need: a bow tie for him, shoes for me, and wedding bands for both of us. We're thinking of going the Etsy route for bands, and I guess we need to make up our minds, like, yesterday. In the mean time, we've been trying to enjoy everything we possibly can in our corner of Pittsburgh. My bridal shower was last weekend, where we enjoyed dinner at Piccolo Forno and cupcakes from Vanilla.   We have plans to visit our ...

Wedding Wednesday #1: Wedding Wears

Yeah, that's right. We're getting all ~lifestyle blog~ up in here with some Wedding Wednesday shit. Yesterday, Steve got his official offer from the University of Kiel. So, as long as his defense goes well, we're gettin' married and shippin' out. Because we're not exactly ballers right now (hint: I have two jobs and one of them I took mostly for the free food), we're looking to make this a cheap but surprisingly classy affair. My first priority is finding a dress for around $100 or less. My taste in wedding dresses is mostly nontraditional, and right now, I'm leaning towards this ...
