Everyone in the U.K. is getting excited for the upcoming royal wedding in England. It’s the older one so those who still dream about marrying a prince, prince Henry is still teychnolly open. This wedding will be broadcast LIVE in April 29 which is just around the corner. you can watch this on YouTube on April 29.

Like I said, Prince William is finally getting married off, to the lucky Kate Middleton, and for some reason beer brewers are jumping at themeing out their line of beer. Adnam has “Royal Wedding Ale” which is simple and sweet and Castle Rock Brewery’s play a pun off of the Broadway musical and its called “Kiss Me Kate.” But one Scottish beer brewer has going himself maybe a little too much “excited”.  He themed his new line of beer after this holy matchonony. There’s “Arise Prince Willy” and “Celebrate Big Willy Style”. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that this certain brand of beer is called Royal Virility Performance a.k.a. the first ever Viagra beer!

This new beer is “raising excitement” as the first even line that contains Viagra. Yep, Viagra because beer is for old men too. Three beers equals one little blue pill. But it is almost insulting to think that Prince William needs a little extra help. He isn’t that retired yet but still BewDog sent he a few packs for his wedding night.

BewDog does claim uniqueness but the royal family doesn’t seem to enjoy their creativity. A few days after Bewdog sent a pack of beer to Prince William to crack open on the night of his honeymoon. Bewdog also sent a large amount to be served at the reception but the royal family gave a complete rejection. If there were plans before to serve beer, it is completely out of the question now. Prince Willy ban beer entirely from the wedding. It’s a royal wedding! I don’t know why BewDog thought their themed beer was equally harmless as a plate. You can buy a cup, plate, etc. souvenirs but beer was just not classy enough for this to-be wed couple.

Last week I committed to something bigger than I ever have before; 1-year lease for a shared townhouse. Three cheers for having to pay bills! The place is unfurnished and since I’m in college I follow the stereotype of being a little cheap. But I also want my place to be a little cute. So I’m doing a little sidestep from my usually blogs to talk about a few cool things I found that are cheap and go green decorating ideas. One of the things I’ve always loved are the old fashion bath tub couches. I don’t think there’s a tub big enough for a family size cough but its nice for small places as a cute chic love seat. You can buy them or make them if you have the man power to do so. Be careful if you plan on buying one. Some are over priced but at least, however much you pay, its recyclable. It feels to be green but its also nice to save a little green.

But on the smaller side for decorations surf through a few things of people just getting creative for things they probably should have thrown out. Instead they made art. And yes it was cheap! Like someone took plastic silverware and attached behind a batter part of a clock and created well a clock but much pretty looking one. Here’s other idea. Get a string of lights and start collecting glass bottles such as wine bottles or coca-cola if you want to be a little more playful. You then stick in the light at the mouth of the bottle. Cut out a hole and a small side of a cork and place around the string. Attach with hot glue, or whatever you wish, around the inside mouth of the bottle then quickly push in the cork the glue back the cut out piece of cork in piece. Make a few and hang them over a corner or the table. I have a small eating area so that is where I’ll be putting mine. Dec0r.com really helped my creative side going.

Another few ideas that I picked up while I was on my internet safari. I thought about taking an old wired bird cage, hang it from the ceiling, and place a scarf that I know I’ll never actually use in side the cage, and also my iHome. I’ll have the player face the cage door if I ever need to switch out my mp3 but most iHome come with a remote so changing the song shouldn’t be a problem. Now that’s the best song bird that I could ever imagine. I have also seen a chandelier out of water bottles. The get crafty forum was also helpful with crafty ideas and if you are feeling like taking something that you just can’t throw away yet you should check out their ideas.

Cheap the price tag everyone loves; you like sales but you cheap and easy and good ten times better! Also being a little crafty makes you enjoy your place much better and you never have to worry about looking like Pottery Barn window display.

If you have large ideas then you should visit Dornob.com. I probably spent too much time on looking through this web site. Dornob has a lot of interesting “stuff”. It’s pretty if you have a see for yourself than me explain it.
