Royal Wedding Fun

Royal Wedding Attire: What is a Fascinator?

Similar to the Kentucky Derby and church-going women, wearing a fancy hat to a royal wedding is essential. But these over-the-top headpieces aren't just feathers, blooms, and netting springing off of heads -- they're called fascinators, a style of former millinery that is popular among British women.

As the world watches Prince William, 28, and Kate Middleton, 29, (soon to be the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) tie the knot, a sea of fascinators will be in the backdrop. For such an occasion, a woman would ensure that a fascinator would sit atop her head. (Victoria Beckham was spotted wearing a navy pillbox creation.)

The fanciful headwear became popular in the early 20th century and is often worn to the side or the front of the forehead, making the accessory look oddly bird-like at times.

A popular London milliner who specializes in fascinators is Philip Treacy, who's work has been seen in Sex and the City. Middleton is rumored to be such a big fan, that she's commissioned him to create the headpieces that her bridesmaids will wear today.

I think I would have worn something like this...


Congrats Will & Kate. May my envy of wishing I had just become a Duchess not be so bad that it turns my fascinator green.

Give Me Strength

I am only 5 days away from turning in my last grad school assignment.  I am about 4 plus hours away from it being done.  I am at that point where I don't care anymore and want to curl in a ball, eat ice cream, rock back and forth, and cry.  Is this normal?

Please someone tell me what they do to get that extra kick in the behind at the last leg.  I need some words of encouragement.  I think I might even be fishing for strength, is that allowed? :)

Let me first start off by asking "Do you remember this post?"  If you don't, I suggest you click on it to refresh your memory.  Anyways, the older post was about how I don't want to be a procrastinator anymore.  Well I just want to let you all know that I finished my taxes at 7:45 pm tonight, April 18 on Tax Day. Why do I do this to myself? Tears, anger, frustration, stress, and really ugly hair.

Did anyone else wait until today or even this weekend to file their taxes?  More importantly, I am speaking to those who own their own businesses because you don't know anything about doing taxes until you own your own business. Am I right or am I right?
