The Sunny Side of Roma

It rained today in Rome, big fat drops that sent minuscule chills down my spine because they contrasted so much with the heat and the sunshine beating down upon our hats at noon on a Wednesday. That was the second time it had rained, the first being on our first proper outing (the major downside … Continue reading The Sunny Side of Roma

Dropping The Miss

You may have noticed a few changes over the last couple of days. New headers, new themes, and a new tagline (sorta). That is because, in a couple of days, I will no longer be Miss Alexandrina. Not legally, anyway. I'll still be Miss in the sense of follow-me-round-a-Victorian-street, feed-the-birds, takea-your-picture-miss? I haven’t changed. I’m … Continue reading Dropping The Miss

10 Days and Counting…

10 days to go. I repeat, 10 days to go. This is not a drill!   What I have enjoyed the most about wedding planning: - Organising everything from scratch. I got so much praise from my arguably-disorganised venue coordinator when I sent over my tables of menu choices, and it had been something that … Continue reading 10 Days and Counting…

June 2017 Wrap Up

Like, did I actually a) blog and b) do a wrap up post?? Blame Cait @ PaperFury for inspiring me. (Photo by Katherine Hinzman) Reading I finished ADAMANT by Emma L Adams. Thoughts/Mini Review? 3 1/2 out of 5 stars. I liked it, and the characters were quirky, but it was a pretty chunky read, … Continue reading June 2017 Wrap Up

Happy Book Birthday, RULES FOR THIEVES

My critique partner, Alexandra Ott's, debut novel is out today, MG Fantasy RULES FOR THIEVES! Eee, exciting. Look at that glossy cover! (And did I mention I had a hand in choosing the title? 😉 ) Twelve-year-old Alli Rosco is smart, resourceful, and totally incapable of keeping her mouth shut. Some of these traits have … Continue reading Happy Book Birthday, RULES FOR THIEVES

100 Days to Go (AKA, I Don’t Have a Clue)

I am eternally impressed by other bloggers. Bloggers who have time and bloggers who have panache to say the things that I kind of just flop about like a dead fish saying. The lovely Carrie-Ann Dring of Something Definitely Happened started her blog to document the British wedding. So to speak. People get married every … Continue reading 100 Days to Go (AKA, I Don’t Have a Clue)

101 Shades of Teal

As luck would have it, my bridesmaid dress plans are almost in as much tatters as I suspect the swatches/samples of dresses would be now. It's an arduous story that starts with one of Alexa's wild ideas. Madly out of my price-range, but what if my girls were dress in shades of blues and greens, … Continue reading 101 Shades of Teal
