Last EVER Sunday Social

Can I just say how happy I am that my entrance back to blogging coincided with the last ever Sunday Social? What are the odds?! This is one of the link ups that I've missed doing most, so I'm excited to at least get in on it. And the questions are right on point too. I'm going to miss it for sure!

1. How did you come up with your blog name?
Remember the scary little pub in Tangled?
I was watching that movie one night while thinking of a name for a new Etsy shop (that failed miserably), did a quick Google search for "The Snugly Duckling" (that's right, just one g!) found nothing, and snatched up every ounce of social media I could get with the name!

2. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
The community it builds! I so badly missed the friendships of people who truly cared about this little site.

3. What is one thing you've discovered because of blogging and now can't live without?
My voice. I've learned what I like and don't like, and how to say what I'm really feeling!

4. Facebook or Twitter? And why?
I started a Facebook page for the blog, but didn't really keep up with it. I think it still exists somewhere in the vast internet void. I still use Twitter on occasion though.

5. If one celeb read your blog, who would you want it to be?
Meg Ryan from the 1990's. I've always believed she was my spirit animal.

(Or present day Mindy Kaling, because we know that's the real question being asked here. And besides, I have a whole blog series based on her "card game" which I promise to get better at. Especially on the photography side!)

6. What is something you want people to know about your blog?
That it'll never make sense. I might have 8 different blog themes in a year. Or a story about going to the dentist one day, and a fashion post the next. It's a big messy hodgepodge that's just a look into my life!

Coffee Corner Inspiration

As promised earlier this week, I'm back for lots of blogging! Especially in home decor inspiration, because our unfurnished apartment certainly needs it. My awesome roommate and I have decided together to turn our dining area into a comfy cozy coffee corner. We both fell in love with this pin, so I went ahead and recreated it to match our hearts. Here's the space we have, and how we want to jazz it up beneath!

Happy Housewarming! (And a Giveaway!)

Hi bloggers! I have been off this blog for a LONG time now, but I have been slowly planning my comeback. I've drafted and re-drafted posts, but figured the best way to come back was to just hop back in! I'm in a really exciting time of my life, that I absolutely wanted documented, so here I am! What's so exciting? I just moved into my first, non-college, big girl apartment!

I've been doing so many decor sets on Polyvore since we have almost no furniture, and wanted somewhere official to keep them. So seriously, expect to see A LOT of home decor ideas on here. And if that's not your thing, I'm hoping to get back into WIWWs and maybe even starting a new blogging series and have some free prinatables. It'll be a big hodgepodge of awesome!

And in honor of my housewarming/coming back to blogging, I wanted to host a tiny, easy to enter giveaway. Nothing fancy. Maybe just a set of candles from World Market? Like in the Mexican Pumpkin scent? And a $5 Starbucks giftcard?

Yes, that's definitely it: 3 Mexican Pumpkin candles (in a variety of sizes) & a $5 Starbucks gift card. Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor.
