Anna-Marie here, with your Thursday clicks, from leftover holiday candy to hours of inspiration board distraction.
You’ve probably still got at least half a dozen of these languishing around your house. Don’t let them sit around through Valentine’s Day.
I know you know better than to throw that old computer battery in the kitchen trash. But if your earth-minded outlook has left you with a pile of obsolete electronic accessories, this website’s here to help.
I’m still on the fence about the concept of an engagement shoot (who needs an excuse to take pictures with the one you love?), but here’s a cute backyard idea, particularly if you’re camping fans. Or if you don’t feel like hauling a damask sofa and fifty pounds of antique milk glass into an open field.
Losing the Auld Lang Syne glow? Some of the resolutions you’ve each made for yourself may be ones that can bring you closer together.
Salads tend to lose their allure in colder months, but try throwing a few of these on arugula or spinach while they’re still warm. This is the basic recipe, but I recommend playing around with spices. Cinnamon, cayenne, and black pepper are great for winter.
Inspiration board junkies can get there fix on this site, which lets you search for images by a color or combination of up to ten colors. Style Me Pretty has a similar feature and tons of gorgeous photos specifically of weddings.
And now for another kind of color: I'm half of an interracial marriage, and I rarely give it much thought. But with MLK, Jr. Day this Monday, love and color warrants some discussion in the wedding world. Here are a few articles from the past few years talking about a new generation's acceptance of interracial relationships, how they've changed in America since anti-miscegenation laws were struck down, and how the struggle for same-sex marriage may bear a resemblance.
When Anna isn’t searching the blogs, she’s writing romance stories, cooking for her wife, or freelancing as a cake decorator and floral designer.
