How to Make a Self-Care Package

My days in the USA are numbered. That sounds really dramatic, and I mean, we hope to be back for Christmas, but the reality is that I'm moving to a completely unfamiliar country in 6 days. As someone with an anxiety disorder - albeit somewhat successfully treated - I need to be careful to take good care of myself so that I can really enjoy the opportunities that are being presented to me. Yes, I'm scared out of my mind. But I need to remember that once all that fear passes and the unknown becomes more familiar, I'm going to have ...

Long-Overdue Instagram LIfe

I haven't posted pictures from Instagram in at least a month, maybe two!  I hope you've missed them as much as I have.  I've been posting regularly on Twitter and Instagram itself, but they haven't made it to my blog in a while.  (If you want to keep up with me, you can find me on IG @nicetobelieve!) My dad's an architect and sometimes likes to design and build model buildings.  This one is my favorite! Page Dairy Mart!  If you're ever in Pittsburgh, I seriously recommend grabbing some ice cream.  They have crazy soft serve flavors and the most amazing sundaes ...

New Job Announcement + Instagrams!

Darlin's, I know it's been ridiculously long since last I posted, and I even neglected Lazy Sunday (because ironically, it wasn't lazy at all).  I'm a failure.  Except I'm not a failure because I've been working at my new job for around 25 hours a week!  It's pretty fantastic, and now I can actually tell you about it! ...I just started at Adam & Eve Pittsburgh!  If you've never heard of Adam & Eve, it started in the 70's as a mail delivery service for condoms, and grew until it became a well-known and trusted brand for toys, contraception, and even lingerie. ...

Why did it never occur to me before to address my posts with "Darlings?"  What the balls is wrong with me? Darlings? Darlings. I took a week and a half long hiatus from blogging, not because I wanted to or because I got bored, but because life has kicked my ass this semester.  I am so, so glad that I started Marvelous Darling when I did, and that I threw myself into it with typical Scorpio gusto, but at this point in my life my schooling has to come first.  Luckily, I am one week away from being done! First thing's first: I know ...

Excitement and End of Semester Blues

Pretties and handsome gents! It's been a crazy-ass time over here.  I had a dog for a couple of days last week, and in tomorrow's Instagrams post (look forward to it! ...please?), you'll see a lot of the little cutiepie.  I was alerted to more than 50 bomb threats because I go to the amazing University of Pittsburgh, which is currently being straight-up terrorized.  I made a glittery iPhone case which I'm considering selling in my own online boutique this summer (!).  And last but not least, I've been hit hard by end of semester blues and highs. Can we go ahead and share ...
