    Goals of a New Mom

    Today my goals are simple, and I only have three: 1. Stay dressed — this might not seem too hard, but believe me: when you have a newborn, you only get about 5 solid hours of sleep a night, and your house is almost always cold, it’s very tempting to stay in the softest, warmest pair of pajamas you can find and veg out watching Sherlock on Netflix. So I got dressed this morning in my new Oasap shirt, and I plan to stay dressed. I love this shirt, though, so it shouldn’t be hard. 2. Do the dishes. I’ve only washed maybe one load of dishes since I had…

    Sponsor in Februrary!

    I can’t believe it’s almost February already. I’m very, very excited to have my first Valentine’s Day as a married woman; Mr. Owl will only tell me that I have to dress up for wherever it is he’s taking me, and aside from that he’s kept mum on his plans. I can’t wait to see what he’s got in store! If you would like to sponsor in February, please let me know! I hope to have all sorts of romantically-inclined posts for this wonderful month of love and chocolate, and if you would like to be a part of showing my readers some love this month, you can hop over…

    Sponsor in September!

    I can’t believe it’s almost September already! August has been a wonderful month for me, but the blog suffered a little due to my distraction (getting engaged does that to a woman) and lack of time to post. Have no fear, though! I will be getting back into regular posting as we slide into the season for  fall fashion (I am so excited!), and it’s a great season for you to join up with me and show off your beautiful shop or your wonderful blog! I know summer isn’t quite over yet, but fall is sneaking into the Washington coast, and it is my favorite season to get dressed; there…

    Calling August Sponsors!

    It’s that time already! I’m finally getting into the swing of calling sponsors in time for the new months. If you would like to have your shop or blog added to the sidebar along with my other three wonderful sponsors, you can hop on over to this page for details and rates. And hurry! Come September, I will be raising my rates just a little for the fall. But let me assure you, it’s totally worth it. You’ll be getting a good amount of exposure; in the last week alone, Eccentric Owl has gained over 60 new followers, and averages 7-13 new followers a day. (That’s over 250 new followers…

    Red, white, and nerdiness

    I am really excited about today’s post, because for this post I wore my very first sponsor item: a lovely hand-printed scarf from my newest sponsor, Quotation Marks. I was very happy when she offered me a scarf with a quote of my choice in red print, because red is my favorite color… and it meant I could be very, very nerdy with a scarf. As well, it was the perfect timing to receive a scarf! The first two days of summer here were wonderful and warm, but then the weather went back to its typical Washington-ness and we got lots of rain. So by the time I got this scarf, it…
