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 ...

Another Lazy Sunday

By 2 , , , , Permalink 0

As I write this, a ridiculous mixture is drying on my face.  I smell like jam.  But I'll get back to that later. & I'm pretty certain that I end up linking to Yes & Yes every. single. Lazy. Sunday.  This Sunday is no exception!  Taylor Roades wrote a guest post about traveling to Northern Thailand that is giving me a pretty serious case of wanderlust.  Is it weird that I've never before felt the overwhelming urge to travel anywhere in Asia?  It just didn't seem like my jam.  Thailand looks like it would be the exception. & You probably don't know this, but ...

Lazy Monsoon Sunday

It's been another working Sunday in the Marvelous Darling household.  For me, anyway - boyfriend's been home, rats have all been home (that's right - all - more on that soon).  It was a super slow day at the shop, but I did get to work with a coworker I don't see much so catching up was lots of fun! Without further ado... & I know this will shock you, but Sarah Von of Yes & Yes wrote another post about travel.  (If you don't know Sarah, shame on you.  But she travels like a BAMF.) & Kira of Her New Leaf made a beautiful freebie wallpaper ...

Lazy Sunday

Hi darlings! I have to head to work in about 12 minutes, but I wanted to get this post up and off the ground because there's a chance I'll be pulling a Ke$ha and leaving for the night (I ain't comin' back). & First of all, despite my not having a Facebook page for the blog (good idea? bad idea?), I absolutely love the ideas from Kira's post  on Her New Leaf about fan-only content. & Kara of I Just Might Explode and Stuff Kara Made blows my mind.  Check out her shop, her 40 before 20 list (which she completed, because she's a ...

Sick & Lazy Sunday

Hi darlings, So apparently retail is a danger to your health and well-being.  Not like, shopping, but working in retail.  But actually, it's probably just my weak-ass immune system, which essential works about 70% of the time.  If there's something going around, I will come down with it.  My throat hurts like the dickens. Luckily for you, this means I've had plenty of time to sit in bed looking for Sunday links!  Hoorah! & Throwback: This guest post by Kyla Roma on My Girl Thursday was one of the first posts I read about starting a blog and how to do it your way. & ...
