While The Princess Rests The Consort Raves

Hello again.  It is I, the Princess Consort, stepping mikeside to entertain you while the lovely and talented Preppy Princess recuperates from a blinding migraine headache.  I do not pretend to understand the origin of the headaches but I am eternally grateful that I do not suffer from them.  They seem particularly vicious and I am certain The Princess would be thankful for your kind thoughts.  While we’re speaking of kind thoughts…

We are so thrilled that our blogging friends are sharing their preppy experiences with us!  What a treat to see some of the (smuggled) pictures from last week’s Martha extravaganza.  We’ve seen shots from some fantastic Lilly-themed parties.  It’s almost like we’re there and we thank you for thinking of us.  We’ll be building up some pages at The Preppy Princess where we can share photos with everyone.  Keep ’em coming and we’ll spread the Lilly love.

On to other things… you think you’re good with music?  Have a musical mind like a steel trap?  Put it to the test!  Our very good friends at Very Short List have found a site that posts one excellent song a day.  Your challenge is to name the song.  You’ll find it all here and it’s a lot of fun.  I managed to unleash my inner Steve Perry.  Or was it Perry Como?  Either way… give it a try.  It’s a great timekiller in the office.  And we do need those during these dreary economic days…

Every now and then I have a “WTH?” moment.  I had one when I saw this a while back:

It’s a simple little recipe.  $20 worth of bacon and sausage woven together into a roll.  That breaks down to about two pounds of bacon and two pounds of sausage.  Slather it up with barbeque sauce and pack it around your heart.  Seriously.  This work of art is a cardiac arrest on a plate.  And you can get the recipe here. I think this monstrosity might be just the thing for your next brunch.  Makes a Big Mac look like fingerfood.  You’re going to need something sturdy to carry that much meat so I suggest this:

Custom Totes

Now I know The Princess has already mentioned these to you but I love them.  They are colorful, sturdy and you get to design your own bag.  Go crazy!  Be a ballerina or a pirate!  Go nautical or patriotic!  Plus, you can get matching belts and key fobs to create a look that will be the envy of all the kids on the block.  And isn’t that what it’s all about?

That’s all for now. I must go check on The Princess.  Thank you for indulging me.  I’ll leave you with Motown’s finest, The temptin’ Temptations.  Try the pork loin sandwich and don’t forget to tip your waitperson; they’re working hard for you tonight.  Good night, everyone!

The Princess is in Shock!

The Princess is absolutely stunned.

Dazed and amazed.

Wondering how she could be so lucky as to win not one, but two blog Giveaways! We haven’t ever won any of the giveaways we entered, so this is amazing! The other interesting thing is that both bloggers were doing their first-ever Giveaways!

Our first stroke of luck came from the wonderful Hanging by a Thread blog:


The talented Kebi is the brains and beauty behind Hanging by a Thread, and the earrings we won are the handiwork of Botanical Bird jewelry. Take a look at these beauties:


Since this was our first Giveaway win, you can imagine our amazement when we learned we were the lucky winner in another giveaway!


Kristin is the proud owner of the Summer in Newport blog.  Just as the title indicates, Kristin summers in Newport, and also has a love of things pink and green.  Winning her giveaway means we get to have this!


A thousand “Thank you” hugs to both Hanging by a Thread and Summers in Newport for their generosity! And for anyone interested in the designs created by Botanical Bird, or the goodies offered by Kristin Pearce, just clicking on their names will transport you to their Etsy shops.


Now we have some fabulous photos to share, thanks to the delightful Preppy Pit Bull, just home from her excursion to New York last week. She was one of the many bloggers fortunate enough to be part of the Lilly-clad audience for last week’s Martha Stewart show focused on the Lilly Pulitzer Jubilee.

She is ever-so-nice, sharing her photos of some of the excitement, starting with the photo above, a special shopping event at the new Lilly Mother Ship (as we call it) on Madison.  In the next photo you can two members of the design team working on new prints for the line.

And here is a shot inside the studio where the show was done live.

For anyone interested in the rest of the photos and more info, just click here and you’ll find yourself at Miss Pit Bull’s post on the topic! Thank you for sharing Miss Preppy Pit Bull!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone!
