Wedding Times!

The time to enjoy every bit planning and researching to be the most beautiful and happy bride you wanted to be. You have every right to make this a reality. Weddings can be very costly if you and your partner and everybody else involved (let’s be honest, each of you are marrying each other’s family;)) does not have a clear idea as to what you want.

May it be through Pinterest or a memory box from your childhood filled with magazine clippings of perfect brides, you need to make a plan, develop an idea and an overall theme. You and your partner need to agree on budgets and prioritise what’s important to the two of you. Although guys generally do not want anything to do with the planning aspect of things it’s good to keep them in the loupe. Some may even have great ideas.

I am planning mine at the moment. It’s going to be overseas and we are both equally excited. Ok, I am giddy with excitement! The excitement of it finally happening, the excitement of planning it and to finally be wedded.

I do not intend of becoming a bridezilla. There is however a huge possibility of this happening. Solely because the country we hope to have our wedding moves rather slowly in terms of corresponding and communication. I like to think it’s going to go remotely to plan because I plan things to the t. I got myself a Wedding Planning organiser from Kikki K and it’s the best thing that’s happened so far. From folders to guest lists to thank you cards this organiser has it all. I advice everyone who’s planning a wedding to get themselves one. It helps you be more organised and after its all over it can be a memory folder and you can go through it to reminisce.

With whatever time I have got left in the coming months, I will post about tips and findings and my journey to not turning into a bridezilla:).


It’s Never Too Late by Julia Reynolds

Nerdy Book Club

I have always been a reader. As I was growing up, my parents had their own books on bookshelves, by their bed, on counters, in cars, and anywhere else they might stop and read. It was similar in the bedroom I shared with my sister – books in baskets, in bookcases, and by my bed – with a light clipped to my headboard so I could read late into the night after the lights were turned off. This foundation for my reading life (which I have repeated with my 9-year-old son Liam) helped me survive the confines of traditional teaching (assigned texts, 6+ week long units, lower-level quizzes and tests) that I encountered during much of my schooling.

As an educator, I am a tireless advocate for students and reading, especially what we can do during school hours since we cannot control what happens (or not) at home. This meant…
