a fashion giveaway by miscellaneous me

Miscellaneous Me is turning a year older in April + she is celebrating with this fab fashion accessory giveaway.

I’d love to win this lariat necklace, it is very simple + can be worn in many different ways, best accessory for a simple mum like me. Winning is pretty simple, by the way, just head on to the contest page for more details. This is up until the end of March, so you still have a few days left to participate. Good luck Wink

the {not-so}ideal age to marry?

When you were younger, did you set an ideal age to marry?

When I was younger + full of optimism I actually remember telling myself that I’d marry by the age of 25 (the most ideal marrying age for anyone, would you agree?), I would have finished studying by then + probably got myself a decent-paying job, + am probably mature enough to keep a relationship, start my own little family + tend to small children. I fondly remember my mum saying if I reach that age + still got no suitor or boyfriend, she would post a “Wanted BF” add in front of our house for me + my sisters! Wink

Well, obviously it didn’t happen, I am way past my target! Plans do look good in blueprint but the execution + realization is a different story altogether. Too bad, mum’s not around to carry out the promise, we are in dire need of it!
