What do you get when you cross a princess with a junkie? Why, a *GIVEAWAY* of course!

by Creative Junkie on August 7, 2009

You know how it is when you’re petite, savvy, unbearably cute and disgustingly talented? With great fashion sense?

Me neither.

I used to be petite and unbearably cute but then they took my umbilical cord away, slapped a diaper on me and it all went downhill from there.

And I don’t think I’ve ever been savvy, unless it was by accident.

But you know who is petite, savvy, unbearably cute and disgustingly talented with great fashion sense?

princess_lasertron_herself2

Princess Lasertron.

She lives in Omaha.

Not to be confused with Princess Leia who lives in a galaxy far far away. As far as I know, Princess Lasertron does not wear jumbo ear muffs made out of her own locks nor a gold lamé bikini. And even if she does, that’s her business, right? And I’ll just mind my own.

I like your hair, Princess Lasertron. And your necklace.

princess_lasertron_shoes

And when I say she’s got great fashion sense, I am SO not kidding. These are her shoes, people.

Can you say OH MY GOD seventy times fast while hyperventilating and drooling? I just did and I feel great, albeit slightly dizzy. Bet I would have felt a whole lot better if I had worn these shoes.

Princess Lasertron is a creative spirit, an entrepreneur, a designer, a blogger, a supporter of other local Omaha crafters and the walking personification of quirky adorable.

Is there such a thing?

princess_lasertron_wedding

Why, yes there is. See what I mean? This is one of her wedding photos. I mean, seriously? Could she be any sweeter?

Could he be any taller?

Could they be any more perfect together?

By the way, it was her boyfriend who dubbed her Princess Lasertron. She loved the nickname so much, she asked him to marry her and he said YOU BET and they’re still living happily ever after.

Do you know the last time I proposed anything to Nate?

Neither does he.

Unless hey, how about re-painting the laundry room counts?

I didn’t think so.

Do you want to know what Princess Lasertron does?

She’s a designer with a business here.

And she spreads around gobs of happy happy happy for 150+ brides a year by harnessing all that creativity bouncing around inside that talented head of hers and then cuts it and sews it and buttons it and wraps it until it comes out looks something like this:

princess_lasertron_white

I am in love with this bouquet and will gladly marry it. It’s delicate and classy and sophisticated.

Just like me!

Except for the delicate and the classy part.

Fine. And the sophisticated part.

Happy?

.

princess_lasertron_autumn

I am, just looking at this one. I’m assuming this was a fall themed wedding. Then again, I’m wrong more often than not. But luckily, Nate remains clueless about this little idiosyncrasy of mine.

Ignorance is bliss, that’s my motto.

.

princess_lasertron_brown_blue

I adore this one. I’m partial to lots of cream with little *pops* of color all over it. This explains why I’ve decided to keep my entire skin and not give it away to the Salvation Army.

.

princess_lasertron_blue_white

These little bundles of happy can be calm and poetic, announcing your presence to your beloved with a softly whispered I can’t wait to start anew with you.

.

princess_lasertron_purple

Or they can burst at the seams with barely contained excitement and shout HOT DAMN, LET’S GET HITCHED!

And the thing is, these flowers will last forever. You’re not spending money on something that is going to wilt and emit a funky odor within three hours, causing guests to look at you funny and hastily spritz you with perfume when you’re not looking.

These bouquets are going to last a long, long time. There will no browning, shriveling or dying or scrambling around trying to make potpourri before it gets sucked up in a Dyson.

.

princess_lasertron_multiple_bouquets

Display it on your mantel. Or on your bookshelf. Or simply make someone hold it in your foyer 24/7. Hey, how about your kids? Isn’t that what they’re for? That, and taking out the garbage?

No?

Wow. Please keep it to yourself then and don’t spoil it for the rest of us. Thank you.

.

princess_lasertron_hot_pink

Nate, will you marry me all over again?

Because I want a bouquet like this.

.

princess_lasertron_bride

And then I want to look like her while I hold it. Minus the tattoo because I’m a big, fat BAWK BAWK chicken when it comes to pain unless you give me lots of drugs in which case, I’m all over the pain! Bring it on baby!

.

princess_lasertron_yellow

We interrupt this post for an important message.These gorgeous flowers do not have to be used exclusively as wedding bouquets. This is a message from your emergency broadcast system.

.

Think outside the box. I know, I know. It can be scary and difficult. I, for one, always keep a box cutter and an oxygen tank handy whenever I attempt to do this myself.

But think about it. Why can’t you decorate your home with these? For holidays or parties or just because. That’s my favorite excuse for doing anything, like chasing after Anderson Cooper even though he’s proving to be very elusive.

Do you know how much my girls would love to have these flowers in their bedrooms? They are currently cleaning their bedrooms. THAT’S how much.

I would actually like to order a bunch and place them all around my house in vases and bowls and keep the eyes of my guests diverted from my gray carpets that were cream once upon a long time ago.

princess_lasertron_pink_button

How cute would this be in that crystal vase your mother got you but you never use because the last time your husband got you flowers, you were busy giving birth?

And Princess Lasertron does not limit herself to brides, just so you know.

She also makes hair bows and headbands for little girls.

.

princess_lasertron_hair_2

<thud> <———– That’s me, fainting from the sheer cuteness of it all. I’d like to plaster these all over Helena’s little head.

.

princess_lasertron_hairband

This is a headband. Doesn’t it make you want to gobble up a Granny Smith apple? Or ten?

*burp*

.

princess_lasertron_hair

And this one yells I MAY BE COVERED IN DIRT, BUT I AM STILL A GIRLY GIRL, SO THERE.

.

princess_lasertron_notebook

Look at these composition notebook covers she just started offering. Helena tried to jump into my monitor and abscond with this one but I yanked her back by her ankles.

She’s got really sturdy ankles.

.

princess_lasertron_notebook_2

Lather, rinse, repeat.

By the way, one of Princess Lasertron’s dreams is to appear on The Martha Stewart Show. And it could really happen. It’s an actual living and breathing possibility, not just one of those delusions some people have after downing six shots of vodka.

Not that I would know.

If you’ve got nothing else to do today, go vote for her projects here: Martha Stewart. Aside from the fact that she totally deserves to be on the show, I’m secretly hoping she makes it just to see her stand next to Martha so I can see the difference in their height. Yes, I know. I’m shallow. I lost my depth at about the same time I lost my waist.

Here’s the big news: Did you know that Princess Lasertron offers bouquet kits, a sort of do-it-yourself kind of thing but she does it all for you? Now, those of us who run screaming from bathing suits and thusly, don’t swim in creative gene pools, can make our very own bouquets and use them for a wedding or home decor or just to have a fun project when your kids say WE’RE BORED, THERE’S NOTHING TO DO three seconds after they wake up.

They’re called Princess Lasertron Felt Flower Bouquet Kits and they can be custom ordered via email at meg@princesslasertron.com in any color scheme you want. Personally, I want one for every single color and hue thereof on earth, but that’s just me. I tend to be a little obsessive.

These kits sell for $130 and come in funky boxes filled with lovely things such as hand-cut felt wool pieces, lots and lots of vintage buttons, embroidery floss, needles, pearl headed pins, satin ribbon and a bunch of other necessities as well as a few surprises. I love surprises! Except for the time I turned forty and hadn’t showered and was braless and twenty people showed up at my house and yelled SURPRISE in my face. Then, not so much.

Oh, and the kits come with detailed instructions! Perfect for those of us who do not have a “Y” chromosome and will actually read them. All you need to bring to the table is your own imagination and a pair of scissors. For those of you like me, please allot three additional hours to desperately search for one of the seven pair of scissors you own because you also happen to own a nine year old who is practicing to be a crafter and a hoarder simultaneously.

These kits make it so much easier to be creative like Princess Lasertron and they’re so much faster than standing around, waiting impatiently to just be her when we grow up, don’t you think?

And for those of you screaming JUST GET TO THE GIVEAWAY FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, WHY MUST YOU BABBLE ON SO?

Just because. That why.

Let’s get on with it, shall we?

Up for grabs:

.

One Princess Lasertron Felt Flower Bouquet Kit valued at $130.

Looky looky:

princess_lasertron_kit_2


Go right ahead and shriek a SQEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

I just did!

princess_lasertron_colorswatch

This is the color scheme of the bouquet kit up for grabs. Can you say cool and refreshing? And get me some ice cold lemonade while you’re at it?

After you find your scissors and stare and faint at all the goodness you’ve won, you’ll soon whip up a snazzy gorgeous 10″ bouquet! Or, you can keep the individual stems separate and use each one however you want! And then you can sit back and bask in the awesome creative gloriousness that is YOU. Stick a stem behind your ear and then order a pizza for dinner. When your husband gets home, tell him that you are too exhausted from being awesome and creative and glorious to make anything else, let alone dinner.

How cute of a project would this be for your daughter? Little sister? Niece? Granddaughter? You know that little 9 year old scissor hoarding imp I mentioned earlier? She was all over me because she wants this kit so badly and when I told her that she couldn’t win it because it wouldn’t be fair, she promptly packed her suitcase and is currently walking down the driveway in search of a new mom who is not a blogger and who did not mess up her chance to be awesome, creative and glorious. And her fifteen year old sister is right behind her, telling her to wait up.


OK … here’s the scoop:

  • To enter, leave a comment in this post, telling me the last time you felt glorious. I’ll start. Two days ago, I found a gorgeous top at Kohls. It fit me without my having to relocate my boobs and it was on sale. And I had a coupon and Kohl’s cash. Oh yeah, that’s what I’m talking about!
  • If anyone has a spare life, I’ll take it. I obviously need to get one.
  • Anyone 18 or older can enter, even if you’re living in a swamp in the Amazon. Knock yourself out! You probably need it.
  • No entries after 5:00 pm eastern time on Sunday, August 9, because I will most likely have stopped feeling glorious by then and will simply feel bloated.
  • You know the drill. Random.org. Randommmmmmmmmmmm.
  • Your comment will show up, please be patient. Please don’t enter more than once! It makes me grumpy. I’ll already be bloated, please don’t add to my misery.
  • I’ll announce the winner on Monday!

That’s it! Good luck!

To hell with neices or little sisters- this has MY name written all over it. I think the last time I managed to feel glorious was about two days ago, when Johnny came marching my way and I still managed to shower, shave, apply eyeliner and be all perfumed when the honey came home from work- depsite being bloated to the size of MT Rushmore. And it didn’t hurt he told me I was super sexy either. I was feeling pretty accomplished that day. Oh, and I managed to make stew and didn’t burn anything in my new electric stove. Go. ME.

Glorious? That’s not a term I know intimately!
I felt like I was in heaven while we were in Cabo San Lucas (husband had a convention and spouses got to come along! :) ). Middle of February and our hometown is experiencing minus windchill and snow, but I am basking in the sun, sipping Miami Vices (oh my goodness!) without a care in the world.

Oops – guess that was quite glorious!!

So cool that you featured Princess Lasertron’s gorgeous felt flower bouquets. I absolutely love them and her cool blog, too.

So can I get a wedding do over because I so wish I had had one of those! Let’s see the last time I felt really glorious was about a month ago when I went through my closet to get rid of all the stuff that was mocking me after I had son #2 and found out that I fit back into my old jeans. You know the ones. The ones that make your butt look good, hide your tummy bludge and yet some how don’t squeeze too much so you can still breathe. It made my day!

Those who know me are aware I don’t do the whole flower thing….BUT for this I could make an exception….in that I’d give it to an awesome friend who DOES SO do the flower thing! My most glorious moment of late was just a couple of hours ago, munching on a delectable Chicken Caeser Salad, a glass (or 2!) of red wine, in the company of four fabulous girlfriends for a lunch we do every couple of months. It’s important! It’s to commemorate a wonderful friend who died in December of last year (only 49!). So we sit and gas-bag about all the funny things she used to do and keep her alive in our hearts and memories. Now is that not glorious or what!!!!!!!!!

Oh my gosh…what an awesome giveaway! The last time I felt glorious was actually last night. I attended a symposium for some fellow classmates who were presenting their senior research papers. We all went out afterwards to a local eatery/bar and had the patio reserved for our group. We shared some laughs, had great drinks and food and just an overall celebratory evening. And get this (FOR REAL) during the presentations, each student was wearing a boutonnière. I kept thinking to myself, “when my group presents their projects next year, I want boutonnières made by Princess Lasertron!!” So it was funny to come home and see this giveaway! (Must be kismet, right?!)

Ooh me! Please! I love Princess Lasertron :D owning one of these is a bit of a dream of mine, particularly as I am dead broke, so the giveaway is particularly inspiring.
Last time I felt glorious was a couple of weeks ago, when the man-person and I went away for our third anniversary, and we walked into the little cottage we’d rented (it’s winter where we are and FREEZING) and there was a roaring fire already going and they’d left out port and posh chocolates for us on our arrival… and I hadn’t been on a holiday in seemingly forever, and walking into this beautiful cottage and seeing it all luxurious … ahhh it was glorious indeed.

I am always so excited when I see Princess Lasertron stuff, it makes me smile. The last time I felt glorious was the other day when I woke up and my new kitten was cuddled up beside me and my fiancee was fast asleep and they both looked totally gorgeous! I felt so happy and content, the sort of moment you wish could last forever. Its makes me happy just thinking about it now :)

Hmm, I last felt *glorious* 17 days ago when I gave birth to my son, Milo. What an momentous achievement, what a gorgeous baby, what pain and suffering, what a piercing shriek when he entered the world!! Is there any more glorious moment in a woman’s life than giving birth? Ha, I don’t think so. I felt like “King of the World.” Except, in a female, Queen-like fashion, obviously. I felt happy to lay back with a cup of tea, a slice of toast and bask in the glory of creating a little person :)

Much love x

These look like flowers even I could keep from wilting:) The last time I felt glorious must be last week when I finally found the perfect dress for my little brother’s wedding that fits to a t, is electric blue (my fav color) and manages to make me not look like a dowdy old lady (which can happen to us Moms from time to time). Found your blog through Two Peas and just bookmarked! Great giveaway…

Last time I felt glorious was a few weeks ago when I got to have a nice hot shower, without either of the kids.
It’s winter here and we have solar hot (hah) water so I often end up with the 4yo or the baby in with my just to so we can all have some heat before it runs out.

Beautiful shoes will do a lot to make you feel glorious. So will Princess Lasertron bouquets, and I want this one so much. Please! Pretty pretty please! Pretty, pretty please oh rulers of random.org!

The most recent glorious time was not connected with fashion. It was last night, after eating a bowl of homemade vanilla ice cream, combined with White Chocolate Mousse Yogurt–over crushed homemade brownies, topped with real whipped cream, chocolate and caramel sauces, and a few crushed pecans. Yes, decadent. Yes, fat and calories, but for once…..a little grace please.

Ooh, the last time I felt fabulous was yesterday. Our household has been celebrating “No-Money-August” and spending on nothing but groceries, gas, and bills. Not even hair cuts, or copy paper is making the cut. Well the first week has been painful, but yesterday I fount about an extra $1K in our checking account. FAB.U.LOUS! And just the motivation I need to make it through the rest of the month!

Just living in my schlumpadinka clothes here hoping someone will offer up free babysitting services so I can get groceries by myself. Seriously though, my glorious moment was when my two year son said, “Mom I like you. You are my best friend.” Oh melt my heart, I was feeling glorious!

Who cares if I don’t need another 50 boxes of kleenex – when they are almost free you just can’t pass that up!

What a great post today girl. So pretty and inspiring. Well, I want to get in the “pick me” line so…last time I felt glorious was out on beautiful Keuka Lake in the Finger Lakes in Upstate NY. Unbelievably sunny and warm day. Lucky me, tied up to a flotilla of 25 boats at a bikini contest. Now, the best part is the contest is for girls 25 years old and younger (of which I have not been a part of for about….gulp…20 years) and happily the boyz on our boat told both my friend and me we looked better and sexier in our bikinis than the girls in the competition. Of course they had enjoyed a few beers before they told everyone within shouting distance, but that doesn’t count does it? Felt glorious for the rest of the weekend. So, c’mon random…I love all things random and bizzare, so pick me please!

The last time I felt glorious was Wednesday night… and well, most of yesterday. Why? Because my sweet boyfriend proposed and I said yes! And lest you think I’m some starry-eyed young thing, I’ll just let you know I’m closer to 50 than 40. And wouldn’t those flowers be put to their best use at my upcoming nuptuials? I thought you’d agree.

I just love your blog. This is my first time ever visiting. I {heart} your creations with all that felt!!!! I love stitching, all that detail…just beautiful! Thanks for the giveaway too.

Okay, to answer your question…when was the last time I felt “glorious”…probably last Saturday b/c I got a couple hours to myself (no kids or hubby around) and got my hair done. Nothing drastic or “pink” (okay, maybe a tad pink) like last time, but it was nice to get away for 2 hours and be pampered. Love the feeling after I’m done and walking to the car. :)

Good luck to everyone!

The last time I felt glorious was when I found my wedding dress and realized that it is a marvel of engineering that will allow me to go braless (I’m a 34H) without terrifying everyone at the wedding. The dress is awesome, I can’t wait for it to come in and get fitted so it’s perfect! My wedding is in October and I’ve been drooling over Princess Lasertron’s stuff for weeks now. I’ve even purchased some felt and pretty thread and buttons to try to recreate something Lasertron inspired at home on my own, but I just know that it won’t be any near as amazing as something from the Princess herself.

It was this morning, when I woke up at 7:15am, with my alarm going off and my fiance going to work, and I realized I could go back to sleep for two hours because I am off today.

That was glorious and the first time I’ve felt unstressed all week.

I felt glorious the other night after I had gotten dressed to meet my friends to see a production of ‘The Melville Boys’. I was wearing that silver necklace, the one I save for special occasions, and just the right amount of eyeliner to make my eyes pop, but not to scream HELLO I AM EYELINER WOULD YOU LIKE TO MEET MY FRIEND GLOPPY MASCARA? I was flirty. I was sexy. I was sassy. I winked at myself in the mirror. Then I put on my big stupid raincoat and walked to the theatre, knowing that even if a downpour ruined my makeup I would still be glorious and awesome.

If I win this is all MINE, yes MINE, if I get my hands on anything Princess Lasertron I can guarantee to you I’m not going to be nice and share, I’m going to run away with it, drool over it, then fondle everything gently, and then put it all together.

The last moment I felt glorious is when I got accepted to paramedic school, I wasn’t even a licensed EMT yet and I beat out others that had years of experience. I start Monday.

First of all, I must point out how I refrained from even turning on my computer until after 8:30 so I wouldn’t suffer the same fate as your last giveaway and wind up as Commenter the First, aka She Who Will *Never* Be Chosen by the Random.org Gods.

:)

Secondly? My standards for “glorious” are, sadly, quite low. If I’m being perfectly honest-n-truthful, the last time I felt glorious was yesterday morning, when I was faced with that thing of beauty and wonder, sitting before me on my breakfast plate: a Wegmans Cinnamon Streusel Friedcake.

I know. I know. I told you “low standards” now didn’t I? You’ll have to excuse them for being particularly low this week, but I’ve been hit with a double whammy, part one consisting of a massive allergy attack following my lawnmowing escapades of Monday afternoon, which resulted in two subsequent days of red, watery eyes, red, stuffed up, Rudolph-would-be-jealous nose and a permanent fog from massive doses of antihistamines that would only clear for a few brief seconds during “damn, I think I actually just sneezed my nose off” sneezing spells. Whammy Part Deux came the day before yesterday, when, coming off the heels of my allergy attack, I was at the gym and pulled something in my lower back. Well, okay, fine, I actually began to pull the something in the shower before going to the gym, when I dropped my little scrubby bath puff thingy and had to BEND ALL THE WAY OVER to retrieve it from the shower floor and my back said “BEND ALL THE WAY OVER? WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? SOMEONE YOUNG AND LIMBER? HAHAHAHAHAHA!” and twanged ominously. But, since hurting oneself at the gym at least sounds like one isn’t utterly pathetic and my back did twang ominously again while stepping down off the elliptical machine, I’m going with that. Annnnnnyhow, however it began, I pulled something in quite a painful way two days ago, and it got progressively worse as yesterday wore on, so I’ve been hobbling around slowly and heavily, all hunched over, for the past 24 hours, cursing myself for choosing to put the ibuprofen (along with all the other medicine-type things) waaaaaaay up on the top shelf of the medicine cabinet so Kiddo can’t get to them because, as I’m presently about 2/3 of my height, I can’t reach them either. Kiddo has proved useful in other ways, though, such as fetching me icepacks from the freezer…

So, yes, anyhow, I am not having the most glorious of weeks. And besides, if we are being honest here, isn’t a Wegmans cinnamon streusel friedcake a thing of glory regardless of the circumstances?

Oh heck, forget I just said all of that above. Let me try again:

I recently felt most glorious when George Clooney whisked me away for a ride through the Italian countryside surrounding his vacation villa on the back of his motorcycle. Don’t believe me? Wait, I’ve got pictures to prove it (lucky to have the paparazzi around)…. look here: http://tinyurl.com/l65umy (That’s my pseudonym they used in the story. And my pseudobody, too.)

Okay, enough. I’m actually going to proofread this before I hit submit for a change. You’re welcome. :D

To be honest it has been to long since I felt glorious…until yesterday. I found out all my test result from the doc and found I do have a brain and yes it is healthy…no signs of a terrible disease (which was suspected). So yesterday and everyday forward is going to be a glorious day because I escaped a death sentance. Now we still don’t know what the heck is wrong with me but it could just be I’m a put together a little differntly than the next person :).
Loved your story….I have followed her for a long time now and will be spending time with her oh so talented self at the Silver Bella in Omaha. How fun is that. I assume that it will be another glorious day :)
Take care

The last time I felt glorious was last weekend doing normal boring errands with my fiance and stumbling on the coolest strip of stores- there was an indie craft store, indie REMOTE CONTROL joint, indie comic book store, indie LEATHERCRAFT haha the list goes on. I love having adventures in the middle of what should be really boring!

The last time I felt glorious – probably a couple days ago when I came home after a not-so-great day at work. My husband and daughter had iced tea and pool lounges ready. Floating, iced tea, cannon balls, BBQ! What a summer afternoon together.

I {heart} princess lasertron. I religiously stalk her blog just to see the colors that she is using in her latest creations. She is so very inspiring!

The last time I felt glorious was Tuesday when I left my dear sweet husband to fend for himself with the monsters. I got an iced chai latte, rolled down all the windows in my car and sang along to “Leaving on a Jetplane” as loud as I possibly could as I soared down the interstate heading absolutely nowhere. It was good for my soul and I felt glorious.

Have a wonderful Friday! :)

For three summers I’ve worked at Interlochen Center for the Arts as Production Assistant in the Junior campers (age 8-12) theatre department. I’ve loved every minute of it, but as this summer came to a close, I knew I couldn’t spend a summer up there in glorious northwest Michigan with so little pay. I found out about an opening in the Faculty at the beginning of the summer, but doubted I had much of a chance of getting the position. So, three days ago, I stopped by the dept head’s office and expressed an interest in the position. After a short conversation, he OFFERED ME THE JOB! Of course, I took it! I managed to keep it together until I left his office….then ran down the hallway, trying to find someone to tell! It was amazing!! I squealed, jumped up and down, and generally felt absolutely glorious!

I felt glorious a few days ago when I got into a XL shirt – hey,it’s been a long time coming since I had the lapband put in a year ago. :)

What a lovely wedding bouquet that would make for my middle son’s partner, she would love it! Those two are also the ones who gave me the most recent glorious moment, a couple of weeks ago, when their beautiful little daughter Grace was christened. It was in a beautiful very old church on a glorious day, with so many friends and family attending and a glorious gettogether after the baptism. A truly glorious day.

To set the scene, I was on a family vaca with our 3 tween girls…we were staying in a hotel with 5 tween boy baseball teams, my girls were getting harder and harder to keep track of (probably because they were playing spin the cell phone behind the stairs!) and I left my husband ‘in charge’ and got a pedicure at the hotel spa. My feet were soft, my toes beautiful. I loved that moment so much I cannot bring myself to take the polish off and it was a month ago!
LOVE PL work and especially that she is doing it from Omaha! Keep up the fab work!

I think the last time I felt glorious was when my best friend and I treated each other to a good mani-pedi, followed by a movie and then coffee after. It was lovely!

I LOVE Princess Lasertron.

While I couldn’t possibly look as cute as she does, the last time I felt truly glorious was this weekend. I was trying on vintage prom dresses at a thrift shop. I popped out of the change room in a sparkly pink poufy number and a grin from ear to ear. My boyfriend gave me a look that said “you are the craziest girl I’ve ever met, and I love you”.
Now I’m smiling just thinking about it.

I love this question! The last time I felt glorious was about two and a half hours ago. Yup, just two and half hours ago, I had hair dye on my head, and was idly shaving my legs, listening to The Dead Weather too loudly and drinking soda. Sound stupid? I guess it probably is. But the fact that I could afford to dye my hair, buy a new album, and buy razors to shave my legs is actually sort of a big deal, what with my student wage pretty much leaving me on the poverty line. But I saved a little and decided to splash out with personal hygenie and rock ‘n roll, and it felt awesome. I actually still kinda feel glorious, with my bright red hair, smooth legs and Jack White-infused brain.

Last time I felt glorious? When I lost 30 lbs, (before most of it came back and jumped me in a dark alley – I swear I never even saw it coming) and tried on a pair of pants that hadn’t fit since the day I bought them in a fit of optimism… and they fit!!

What a great post! I was brought over here from Princess Lasertron’s blog (which I absolutely love), and I love your style of writing.

Hmm.. a glorious moment, eh? I would have to say it was a few weeks ago when I went to the outlets and found THE rehearsal dress. It’s the most sought out dress, which retails for $400. They had 3 dresses, all of which were tiny. I tried it on, and I felt like a princess. It fit in all the right spots, and even complimented my barely there boobage. I felt super glamorous, and even the price was right at a discounted 77% off. Oh.. I didn’t actually buy it, but trying it on was worth the experience.

Thanks for the amazing giveaway! I love Princess Lasertron like many do, and I am in awe of her talent. Thanks!

Love this! I so admire out-there people who are so very talented! I like to hope that my thinking is totally out of the box…not quite as wonderful as Princess Lasertron! But now she has given me something to aspire to. When did I last feel GORGEOUS? Hmmm, definitely a couple weeks ago when I was in the dressing room of a local consignment shop and I was wearing (and eventually purchased) a pair of Talbot capris for $9.00. The same ones I saw in their catalog for $48.00! What was the chance I would walk in that shop the very morning someone brought them in because she didn’t like the way they fit. And that they would be MY size, and the color I would have chosen…for $9 freakin’ dollars! Yup, GORGEOUS!

The last time I felt glorious…was Tuesday. It was just one of those “gosh I look good” days. I wore a new brown old navy t-shirt, my jeans were on day 2 meaning they fit exactly perfectly right and the orange ballet flats I got to wear on my wedding day. My wedding isn’t until November but until then I’m wearing the hell out of those shoes. I just feel so….glorious (!) each time I do.

I dressed up, put on make up (very rare for me these days), made Fettuccine Alfredo, opened a bottle of wine, and put some Sinatra on the stereo. No tv, no computer, no phones, and no wedding talk. We ended the night with a boat ride that started at dusk. We got to watch the moon rise over the lake. It was very magical, romantic, and glorious!
