This here blog is Miss Hayley Paige's fancy and fantastical attempt to spread a little love! I am a head designer for the Hayley Paige and Jim Hjelm Blush bridal collections at JLM Couture. Welcome to my verbal runway of creative experimentation and romantic inspiration...
Tray of heart-shaped ice cubes * 1/4 cup dried lavender * 2 cups boiling water * 3/4 cup white sugar * 8 lemons * 5 cups cold water * Place ice cubes into a 2 quart pitcher * Place the lavender into a bowl, and pour boiling water over it * Allow to steep for about 10 minutes, then strain out the lavender and discard * Mix the sugar into the hot lavender water, then pour into the pitcher with the ice * Squeeze the juice from the lemons into the pitcher, getting as much juice as you can * Top off the pitcher with cold water (and vodka? Just sayin’…), and stir * Taste, and adjust lemon juice or sugar if desired. Pour into tall glasses, pull up a lawn chair and a good book, and relax!
And so I promise I had an excuse for my absent posting.
BTW, until I get a much better idea of my new and improved blog involvement regarding my new and improved designer transition, the Wedding Wardrobist will be entirely un-wedding and un-wardrobist related to the best of my abilities (I can only abstain from so much romance). This is also my attempt to avoid any misinterpretation or unjustified reflection of professional views :)
So here is the utter randomness that I would like to fill your evening with:
Bike-riding baby T-rex.
Dear Crazy Frenchman, Tour de France 2012 costume. Take note.
(...yes, those are frosted Circus Animal Cookies from childhood. Winning).
Seriously relevant band-aids:
Ohm' nom' nom'!
Nunubear Kiddie Pools:
This song. Much love to my favorite solo Sweed singer:
Outdoor romance roofdeck cuddlefests.
Oh don’t it make your heart go wow?
...or maybe that's my irregular heartbeat condition. Rarr...
