OMG, THIS GORGEOUS DIY BOHEMIAN DESERT WEDDING. | Elena + Tony | The Bird & The Bear

Honey and I ate a strawberry today that was so good, like it was so sugary and scrumptious, that we couldn’t even enjoy it for a second before jumping to conclusions about the strawberry being artificially flavored or genetically engineered to taste like that.  ”Probably added sugar to it. Bastards,” said Honey.  ”NO way is this naturally how a [...]

DEAR TKB: “I Think I Need More Sex Than My Partner… What Do I Do?” PLUS: Royal Baby News (UPDATED) & Would You Wear This Sheer Wedding Dress? | NSFW

Clearly I have a lot to talk about. Today’s letter for our Dear TKB advice column is the first I’ve received of its kind, but the issue the reader is facing is turning out to be a lot more common than I think we as a culture realize.  Friends of ours have gone through it.  I’ve [...]

“Dear TKB: Help! My sister is about to marry a man she’s never kissed!” | Plus: OMFG, THESE DRESSES.

PARTY + GLITTER = FUN | DIY Party Favor + Place Card + Necklace… In One! Plus: A Note About ABC’s ‘The Bachelorette,’ Which Premiered Last Night. Plus Bambino.

At the risk of sounding famous (because I’m not) I once hung out in an airport with Dave Matthews.  He approached me. Let me set the stage: I’m de-boarding a plane.  The face I see when I’m having sex with my college boyfriend is walking towards me.  Initially the beauty of this moment is lost on [...]

DIY ON A BUDGET: Tiny Pretty Herb Bouquet Centerpieces! | A Tutorial By Renee Hong

I love having fresh greens around.  But, as we all know, having fresh flowers around the house gets pretty pricey pretty fast.  Herbs, however, are only about $1-$2 a sprig (or free if you grow them yourself!) and can make just as much of an impact.  An herb arrangement makes for super practical home decor/centerpieces [...]

MAKE IT | Letter-Stamped Charms! For Valentine’s Day, or Your Wedding! | A DIY by Renee Hong

There are certain things in life we do not question and instead accept as fact.  It’s your basic “if p, then q.”  An unwritten guarantee of an outcome.  For example: If you are getting your partner anything other than sex for Valentine’s Day, then the love is gone. See how cut and dry that is?  Things that make [...]
