Oh my cute. Although there are no Melificent babies to speak of (yet), I’m going to keep this adorable DIY on file for the future. I mean, how cute are babies in hipster cardigans? I die. Now to master the art of sewing.

Retail Therapy & So Effing Cute Winner!

I told you this would be a new feature on the blog. Sigh.
Here’s what I’ve managed to pick up this week;

BaubleBar Neon Bib Necklace
I’m pretty sure I’m obsessed with their weekly Buried Baubles. For those of you not in the know, they reduce one item on their site to a frugal $10 if you can find it. I’ve been searching and buying for a solid 3 weeks now. ::hangs head in shame::

A Very Potter Bachelorette Details

April 26th, 2012 | Posted in DIY, Geekery, Party Planning by Meli

This past weekend I hosted a bachelorette weekend for my friend Elissa and wanted to make sure it was as special as can be. What made it so fun to plan was the theme: Potter! We were going to Wizarding World in Orlando for the weekend, so I wanted to make sure there was a magical theme going through all the details. I started with little gift bags for the girls:

I got some sweet little goodie bags from Hey Yo Yo and filled them with temporary dark mark tattoos, Potter themed buttons and pencils, along with golden snitch bracelets. What I loved the most was that I found all of them on Etsy!

{Giveaway}: So Effing Cute

April 24th, 2012 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery by Meli

Something I don’t share nearly enough on this blog is my level of geek. It’s pretty high. Especially when it comes to my fandoms, one of which is all things Harry Potter. This is why I nearly passed out & died when I stumbled on So Effing Cute‘s Etsy shop while browsing for bachelorette gifts. Debbie’s items stretch from sweaters to panties dedicated to the world of nerd (Potter, LOTR, The Hunger Games & Star Wars just to name a few), but her deathly hallows crop tee really got me good. I had to have it!

I especially loved that I was able to pair the crop with my temporary dark mark tattoo (also from Etsy)! You wish you were as dorky as I am, admit it!

A Very Magical Bachelorette

I come bearing both good and bad news. Bad news? No Lovable Friday today. Good news? I am en route to Orlando, Florida where I will be celebrating a wonderful girl’s bachelorette! I am completely honored to be my friend, Elissa’s, maid of honor and have had such a good time planning what may just be the best bachelorette party idea in the world. Well, at least to those of us that believe in magic. It will be at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter where we will be sure to spike our Butterbeers and run amok alongside fellow witches all while pledging allegiance to the boy who lived.

I’ll be back next week with party details, as well as a related giveaway!
Have a great weekend, muggles!
