ARM.A.GAD. I WANT these shoes as my wedding shoes! Gawds, they’re sold out at Rue21, HOW DARE YOU BE SOLD OUT! xD
Unimpressed Nett is unimpressed. xD Except for where I’m totally impressed BY the shoes themselves. Oh well, back to drooling over tall but flat/platformed boots..! xD

I am making myself this dress. For no reason. I will wear it in the house baking bread.
That is all.

I’ve been making bread most every day now since Greg’s favourite commercial loaves are no longer available. Previously I’ve been making rolls, pullaparts and crusty loaves. SO, this was first attempt at making soft crust loaf, WORKED AWESOME, I RULE! *laughs*
I took all the tips I could find on how to attain a soft crust on a loaf of bread (since all the recipes seem to make crusty ones – not that I don’t like those! But not the greatest for sandwiches xD), narrowed out the ones that I thought would work the best in our rather archaic kitchen set up, and VICTORY WAS MINE!
Baking? Chemical voodoo, mang.
Although, the only problem with baking your own bread?
You eat it SO fast.
*flail at massive spike in bread intake*
Not that Greg’s at all complaining xD

I realised that I hadn’t actually made any announcements online about our news..! O_O;; xD
On the fifteenth of June, after I’d had a conversation with Bec about how we’d been planning on buying me a ‘test’ engagement ring to see if I would even WEAR one – she excitedly ran off and looked through her fashion ring collection and pulled out two rings she thought would fit me for me to borrow and test out.
Later that night while we were hiding from the cold in bed, I showed Greg, and he put them both on my finger. But! He decided that that wasn’t right, demanded I take them both off and after a whole mess of awesome face mashing: He asked me to marry him.
We’d previously discussed that we wouldn’t do “The Question” and when we found “The Ring” we’d just be engaged. But I had no idea that I really DID want to be asked so much until he actually asked me.
Needless to say, I totally said yes, have been pretty DAMN excited about it every since, and I still get all lip and jaw wibbly and giddy just thinking about it. YAY ENGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGED!!!!!!! :D
I wasn’t allowed to get too attached to this huge blue resin flower with its little diamante heart. But its too late, I love it.

No, I’m serious, what IS up with all of it!? xD Largely my favourites at Whirlingturban are all variations on the same theme, but what delicious variations they are! I mean come on the red and blue-teal details on this skirt and playsuit style!? Yes, you heard me PLAY. SUIT! xD xD LAWLS THE LITTLE SHORTS :D DELICIOUS!! SO WANT!
Other seriously serious wants include the Emerald & Peacock Sharkskin (do want to just potter about in O_O), Jumbo Polka Dot Wing Bust Dress, Emerald & Peacock Wing Bust Dress (OOOM NOM NOM NOM NOM!!). Plus, I’m a big fan of three of their off-the-rack bridal options: Woven by Hand, Ivory Kissed with Gold, & Posies on Cream with Palest Pink Lining. Scrumptious!

Greg’s flu has managed to mutate itself while holidaying in his person. Consequently, it has now found the great magnanimity to settle into me in an attempt at repeat custom. Thanks very much, influenza. Enjoy your stay, please, DON’T come again…
At any rate its left me lying flat in bed, with the novel feeling at least that today I am unable to stand and my muscles are screaming for completely out of the ordinary reasons. Its almost pleasant, conceptually speaking. Unfortunately, the reality is that even my shins hurt. WHAT KIND OF FLU EFFECTS ONE’S SHINS?! Preposterous!
So I’m attempting to battle on as always, get some work done and in the meantime I get to read up on surprisingly enlightening articles on typographic maturation: “Phaeton” – A classic Bearskinrug Article. When DOES one use those extra characters save for flights of fancy when designing visual elements?
