Princess Diana's Wedding Gown

I had the most incredible opportunity to visit the Union Station in Kansas City, Mo while Princess Diana's wedding gown was on display! I've been studying wedding apparel since I began my graduate work at the University of Missouri, so I couldn't possibly pass up this opportunity, even while trying to finish my dissertation. It was well-worth the break (and the time I spent catching up on dissertation work.)

The exhibit featured information about Diana's childhood, complete with home videos, handwritten works by Diana as a little girl, and artifacts from her childhood. She seemed to be such a fun, carefree child. She was just as attractive as a little girl as she was as an adult. It is no wonder she stole the hearts of the general public. She certainly stole my heart as I grew up watching her in the public eye. She was gorgeous and philanthropic. There really isn't a better combination. She was quite the role model.

The exhibition also shows details about her time as the Princess of Wales and her life post Prince Charles. We got to see many outfits worn by her during her years in the public eye. There was great information about her philanthropic work. She liked to give attention to those charities that were the least glamorous. She did a lot of work with AIDS victims and Leprosy patients. She had a lot of heart, didn't she? Of course there was information about her tragic death, even an entire area filled with sympathies sent after her death. It was really quite moving.

Even though I attended the exhibit with the intention of seeing her wedding gown, it turned out not to be one of my favorite parts. Yes, it was exquisite. But her philanthropy work really touched me as I am planning The Purple Dress Project. I felt a bit of a connection with her, knowing I was trying to support a pretty unglamorous disease as well. I was encouraged by her work. It isn't easy to do philanthropic work. It is difficult to get people to donate and see the purpose in your cause. But Diana's story really rekindled the fire of The Purple Dress Project and I'm so excited it is launching tomorrow.

If you live in the area, you should stop by the Union Station between now and June 12th to visit this exhibition. It is one of the best I've seen.

April Showers...

AprilShowers

Shirt: J. Crew
Vest: Express
Necklace: Bead for Life
Skirt: J. Crew
Tights: Gap
Rain Boots: Ralph Lauren Polo

It is almost April and even though I'm not a big fan of rain (who is, really?) I'm read for life to slow down...or is it take off? I can never remember what April brings besides showers. I'm about to start The Purple Dress Project but my dissertation writing is coming to an end. I have my defense scheduled for the 14th of April and I submit my dissertation to my committee tomorrow. I am also flying to an interview as this posts! Keep your fingers crossed for me, I really want this job! It sounds just perfect for me, really suits what my goals for my career, family, and life. It isn't often that a job fits all three! I guess I should ask you to wish me luck for several things:

1. That this job interview goes well
2. That the launch of The Purple Dress Project is successful
3. That my dissertation defense goes smoothly
4. That graduation occurs as planned

:)

What are all of you up to lately? Anything we should keep our fingers crossed for?

...besides that April doesn't bring TOO many showers?

Interviewing 101

Monday, March 28, 2011 | | 11 comments
Have you ever googled interviewing images? They're a riot. So P.C. and cheesy.

I'm headed to my first interview for a position as a professor at a major state college in a few days. The job description is everything I was hoping for and I'm really hoping to make a fantastic impression during my visit. I consulted my twitter friends about any interviewing tips they had and I received the following email from @RhondaDdesigns. She used to work as a recruitment analyst before starting her super adorable etsy shop, Rhonda D. Designs. I hope you find these tips as helpful as I did while preparing for my interview! Wish me luck in the next couple of days! I sure hope my interview goes well and I get a call with an offer! :)

{Interviewing Tips:}

There is so much more competition in the job market today. If you are lucky enough to earn an interview, you must do everything you can to stand out. First and foremost, you MUST DO YOUR RESEARCH. I was always amazed at how many people would come to an interview and have no idea what the job duties were. Most companies, especially larger corporations, will have a "Job Description" of each position within their company. Some of these are available on-line, and those that aren't, can typically be obtained by calling the Human Resources Department. These "Job Descriptions" will usually list the job duties, as well as the chain of command, and the skill level that is expected. It is important to consider each of the job duties, and ask yourself, "What have I done that would demonstrate my ability to successfully perform that task." Majority of the interview questions will have roots in the Job Description. Being able to give specific examples of how your experience and education has prepared you for those job duties will help you stand out amongst the crowd, and will give you more confidence in the interview process.

You also should do some research on the company. What is their philosophy? What are some of their policies? Who is the head honcho?

Ok, now that you have done your research, you must practice "selling" yourself. Most of us are not used to tooting our own horns. We were taught that it is not polite to brag, but in the interview process you MUST sell yourself. Sit down and make a list of your attributes that could be an asset on the job. Now, having said this, there is such a thing as being over confident to the point of cockiness. Most of us won't have that problem, but just remember to keep yourself in check.

On to appearance. Dress appropriately for the interview. If you are going for an office job, dress in business appropriate attire. For ladies, a skirt or pants suit is the best. Without sacrificing too much of your own "flair", keep accessories to a tasteful minimum. You do now want the interviewer to be distracted by your appearance. For men, dress slacks and a button down is a must. Depending on the position, you may want to add a tie and/or jacket.

Practice answering questions, or just talking about yourself in front of a mirror. Yep, I'm serious!!! By doing this you will be able to answer questions on interview day with minimal hesitation, minimal "umms", and minimal fidgeting.

Some interviewers will ask what your weakness is as related to work habits. Think about this before hand. Give an honest answer that can be viewed as a positive. Here are some examples:  "I tend to be a perfectionist. I can be hard on myself.". Or  "I am ultra organized. Everything has it's place. It drives my husband crazy." 

If these don't apply to you, think about your own weakness and how it can worded so that the interviewer may view it as a positive.

You may be asked if there is anything you would like to add, at the end of the interview. Do not say "no". Always have something to say to to this quetions. Even if it is just reinforcing your desire to work for the company and why.

Put time and effort into preparing for this interview!!!! It is a dog eat dog job market out there. Do not take it lightly.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to email Rhonda at rkduerksen@sbcglobal.net.

A Marriage Made in Heaven

Friday, March 25, 2011 | | 8 comments

What? You didn't dream of getting married in a faux two-piece dress with the top half a white top with black polka dots and the skirt a reverse of that print? With a bright pink cat on the bodice? You didn't want to marry in black flats with white ruffly socks and a band-aid on your right shin? That wasn't your dream? Okay, it wasn't mine either...but I had one heck of an imagination. I was spending the weekend with my grandma and she was always a crafty lady. So when she caught me pretending to get married she thought I needed a veil. And isn't this veil classic 80s? It doesn't get any more 80s than this. I knew even then that it was too much for me, but I was so happy to be a bride I didn't care what my veil looked like. Aren't I the most glowing bride you've ever seen?

In other news, my 3rd wedding anniversary is on the 29th! It's been a great 3 years, Eric! I'm looking forward to 300 more! I love you more and more every day.

Fabulous Sponsor Day! ~ Blondies Shop

{What is your favorite thing about owning your own business?}
The favorite thing about owning my own business is a combination of 2 factors: sharing my "creations" with others and the creative freedom that comes along with being the boss. ;) An important aspect of being creative is to not have any restrictions.

{What makes your shop unique?}
My shop is unique because of "how" I put things together. I really feel as though a part of me is in each piece, a part of my personality that is. ;)
√Čach item is handmade and no two are alike.

{What is your favorite product from your shop?}
I am not sure if I can pin-point one specific favorite item from my shop... There are so many items to choose from. You see I really like all of the items I create, each and every one. If I absolutely had to pick one item, I'd pick the fun and flirty, black Roxanne scarf with sequins - its a fabulous addition to any outfit. However, my favorite scarf constantly changes as I design them. My work-in-progress scarf is a very close second! I cannot even begin to pick a favorite set of note cards but, to date the Kirsten set is at the top of my list.

{What does your ideal Saturday night look like?}
My ideal Saturday night is a fabulous dinner with Bern, my guy, at a local pub. I'd have my "usual": prime dip sandwich with plenty of horseradish sauce, onion rings and a glass of house red. The night wouldn't be complete without a few episodes of Dexter and a dip in the jacuzzi while admiring the star filled sky.

{What is your favorite thing about March?}
My favorite thing about March is the welcoming heat! You see living in Arizona we always get a sneak peak of the heat coming our way and just in time for spring training.

{What could you win?}
Any set of note cards!
My favorites are these glamorous note cards.
Because, well, I love all things glamorous. :)

Fabulous Sponsor Day! ~ Chic Geek Designs


{What is your favorite thing about owning your own business?}
I like knowing that my pictures, cards, etc are going to be used to make someone else happy. That makes me happy. I recently did a custom order where they got a 16x20 print and I framed it for them and everything. She emailed me after the fact and said they loved just looking at it. It made my heart smile. That's why I got into business.

{What makes your shop unique?}
My shop is all me - it's my photographs and shows who I am from beyond the lens. I think that's what makes it unique.

{What is your favorite product from your shop?}
I am loving my two newest items - the photo journal and the coasters.

{What does your ideal Saturday night look like?}
An ideal Saturday night is a night out to the movies/dinner with my wonderful husband. It would probably include some coffee and ice cream, assuming it was all fat free. (We're dreaming, right? ;-))

{What is your favorite thing about March?}
The warm weather finally arriving! As long as it doesn't get too hot. It's already in the 80s here in GA. So I hope that doesn't mean a hot summer! Haha.

{What could you win?}
You could win a $15 credit to my shop!
(I used to live right around the corner from the Duomo in Florence when I was studying abroad in Italy. That image really brings back memories! You could purchase that image for only $5 if you won the shop credit to Chic Geek Designs!)

Fabulous Sponsor Day! ~ Sew What by Saira


{What is your favorite thing about owning your own business?}
Making pretty things that people love! Having customers tell me how happy they are with my handmade goods. Getting to be a stay at home mom and setting my own hours. I love it when I can be there for the kids and make a living at something I love. It's the best of both worlds!

{What makes your shop unique?}
Everything is handmade by me. I sew or knit each and every item myself. And I also offer the option of having any item customized to a customers specific needs...such as colors, size, patterns, qty's, etc.
Most of the orders I get are custom orders. I have started getting orders for wedding clutches and it is so much fun to know that my creations are apart of someone's big day!

{What is your favorite product from your shop?}
Wow, so hard to choose from. I only have things I love in my shop! But right now I'd have to say the clutches and my newest product...checkbook covers! The clutches are perfect for Spring and can be made in any color and I love the adorable tuxedo ruffle! And the checkbook covers make writing checks fun and actually quite cheerful!

{What does your ideal Saturday night look like?}
A date night with the hubby! I'm a romantic at heart so I love spending time with my hubby whenever we get the chance. Whether it's just the two of us out to dinner or sitting in our backyard with a glass of wine relaxing. He keeps me grounded and makes me feel loved!

{What is your favorite thing about March?}
Spring!!! The warmer days and all the beautiful Spring Colors!!

{What could you win?}
A large pink floral clutch! Perfect for Spring!

Fabulous Sponsor Day! ~ Jen Deats Photography

| 1 comments

{What makes your shop unique?}
They are all my original photographs of interesting places I've been to or cool things I have seen. I love the idea of sharing them with others. I have a lot of fun with it.

{What is your favorite product from your shop?}
I am really liking my new Route 66 photos that I have up in the shop. My Route 66 trip was great and I saw things that not a lot of people get to see so I think those photos have a lot of unique character.

{What does your ideal Saturday night look like?}
Dinner and a movie with the husband after being out exploring our new hometown, our new Saturday tradition. Last month I talked about the indie movie theater here with a wine bar in it. It's our new favorite hangout.

{What is your favorite thing about March?}
My favorite thing about March is the onset of spring weather. I'm a big fan of the flowers and the leaves.

{Product Review}
Jen generously sent me the image above and I'm totally in love with it. I first fell in love with it through her etsy shop: Jelitan and then it arrived in the mail and I fell in love again. There has been a lot of falling since I met Jen. Her photography is so inspiring that I just can't stop staring at my lovely photograph. It arrived in the mail, packaged with great care, and when I realized what it was I couldn't rip into the package quickly enough (and of course being oh so gentle because I was holding a precious work of art!) Holding the print in my hand gave me goosebumps...it was even more gorgeous in my hand than it was on the internet. The colors really pop! It has a fabulous vintage feel that I just can't get over.
As my husband said...
There is nothing like a professional quality photo
He is so right! Jen's photograph really lit up my home during the Valentine's Day season!
In fact, it is still up, displayed in my living room. No one seems to notice that it has a bit of a Valentine's Day theme, they just get enamored by the print. I think I'll leave it up for a few more months. ;)

Spring Meal

Monday, March 21, 2011 | | 9 comments
As Spring approaches, light and fresh meals become more and more appealing to me! I love to whip up something tasty and then sit on my back patio and enjoy the weather, slowing devouring my delicious meal. The weather keeps getting warmer and warmer here (you know, with the occasional snow accumulation here and there) and I've been dreaming about my first Spring meal! I think I'll start off with a creamy spinach dip (made with fresh spinach of course, perhaps from my back yard or from the local farmer's market) then make a light quinoa salad with scallops and peas...oh, my mouth is watering already! Doesn't that sounds like the most delicious salad? I'm a big fan of quinoa so I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it and this sounds just perfect for my Spring Meal! Then no celebratory meal is complete without dessert and when I found this rhubarb and vanilla compote I was hooked. Hope this inspires you to really celebrate the coming of Spring this year with some mighty delicious food!

For Kicks and Giggles

Friday, March 18, 2011 | | 4 comments

For any of you who doubted, at one point my Dad did have brown hair. This is one of my favorite photos of my dad and me together. It really illustrates our relationship together, even today. He is so goofy and can always make me laugh until my sides hurt. This picture just makes me smile. For one, we had that darn brown recliner long past its due date. It was missing buttons and the fabric was shredding but it was my Dad's favorite recliner so we just kept it. Plus, it was the recliner that he used to rock me to sleep in so he really didn't want to get rid of it. I also love this picture because it captures how much fun I have with my family. I imagine my mom was laughing just as hard right along with us. We always have so much fun together. We make each other laugh so hard.

It looks like my dad is wearing a Jeff Jr. High sweatshirt, a school he used to work at. I really can't tell what I'm wearing. But it is cute. A white t-shirt with yellow trim with matching yellow sweatpants. I've always been very matchy matchy. Something I've been trying to get over now that I'm in the fashion world. I really should be more adventurous with color but I often resort back to my matchy ways. It looks like there might be a care bear on my shirt? It is difficult to tell. I did love the care bears when I was growing up. I had a quilt with all the care bears on it and it was one of my favorites.

Doesn't this picture make you smile? I can't help but smile when I look at it. As I write this post I'm grinning like a fool and I'm sure anyone who is watching is wondering what makes me smile so much. :)

Cardigan: Banana Republic
Skirt: Snnewt
Shoes: Keds
Flower Clip: Bloomin Boutique

The weather is starting to feel nicer in our neck of the woods. Slowly getting warmer days, longer days, bright and sunshiny days! It makes me happy. Unfortunately (or probably luckily) as the weather makes me happier school obligations make me sadder. I'm in the midst of writing my dissertation. Why does writing obscenely long papers never go according to plan? I'm a big planner and I prefer to schedule things accordingly. Not everyone is on this same plan, and my dissertation has made it a point to deviate from this plan in more ways than I care to admit. I'm ready to stop researching World War II weddings. It was a fabulous topic in the beginning but I've beaten it to death and I'm not longer interested in what used to be an extremely romantic time period. I mean, what is more romantic than getting married on furlough and writing love letters across seas? This dissertation is making me a cynic. It must end soon or I'll lose all optimism. I used to be full of optimism. I was the optimistic queen. I guess I still am, I'm just being melodramatic, which I am often.

Anyway, this super adorable outfit which is NOT reminiscent of the 1940s but rather the 1960s still makes me happy. Wouldn't it be perfect for a picnic? I just wish I had time for one...I will soon, as soon as this darn dissertation decides to complete itself.

Banana Bread (yes, it is low calorie)

{Banana Bread}
Yes, it is low calorie but it is still soft and moist! And very banana-y. I tried this recipe once before and it needed a bit more perfecting before sharing with you. Give it a try, I think you'll enjoy it!

Ingredients:

* 1/4 cup sugar
* 2 Tbsp butter, softened
* 1 large egg, beaten
* 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (a generous 1/4 cup)
* 1 cup ripe bananas, mashed (3 small)
* 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
* 1/2 tsp baking soda
* 1/4 tsp salt

Preparation:

1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine softened butter and sugar, and beat with a mixer at medium speed, about 3 minutes or until well combined. Add the egg and applesauce, and beat another 2 minutes. Fold in the bananas.
3. Lightly spoon the all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine the two flours, baking soda, and salt in a separate large bowl.
4. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing after each addition until moistened.
5. Coat one loaf pan with cooking spray. Pour the batter into the loaf pan.
6. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or until a wooden pick inserted in center of the bread comes out clean.
7. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Remove the bread and cool completely on a wire rack.

Yield: 1 loaf, 10 servings, 100 calories per serving
