Monarchy Mondays, Countdown has Started !!

The excitement is building  The Royal wedding is in less then 48 hours. Im going to watch the wedding on KTLA 5 local station here in Los Angeles. Coverage starts at 1 am pacific time.

I found this great, large, black & white feather head piece today at Nordstroms Rack, that with my grandmothers pearls will be my Royal Wedding outfit.  Monarchy Mondays has been so much fun for me the pass few months, I hope you have enjoyed it too.

Monarchy Mondays, Jolly Good, Five Day's to Go !!

Im so excited, five days to go till the Royal Wedding !! So for the next five days we at Urban Buddha will go crazy with anticipation. What you do not know is that Buddha has a day job, we are a super hero cleaning & organizing blog by night and a stylist to pay the bills by day. Found this knock off (looks real to me) engagement ring at Michele's craft store for ten bucks. Made a trip to my favorite store Cost Plus World Market, bought popular English nibbles to snack on. Prince Williams grooms cake will be made with McVitie's biscuits, so I picked up some at the store. Other yummy treats, Hobnobs and Flake chocolate bar, when I was in London for my 27 birthday, I had one of these every day, my favorite.

Today I was watching KTLA channel 5 morning show, the only morning show I watch, well the Royal Wedding gods must of wanted me to watch because I found a great site, Catch My Party. com. Found the cutest printable party prints for my "Knees Up Right Royal Party" this friday. I was looking for Union Jack stickers and found printable ones, very happy.

Monarchy Mondays, An Update on HRH and Middletons Royal Wedding

Are you excited as much as we are ? So I want to give you some last minutes detail of the Royal Wedding. First I want to talk about the cute souvenir I found at Cath Kidston, a premiere British designer with shops in the UK and on line here in the states. You may have seen her cute oil cloth tote bags before,  English rose flower print and very pricey, I know I have one. What could be more proper for a Royal Wedding then a cup of English tea, little tea sandwich and an adorable kitchen tea towel to serve them with ! The site has everything you need to have a "Knees Up Right Royal Party". Also check out Amazon for Royal Wedding souvenirs.

Monarchy Mondays, The Wedding Procession Line

After Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot, the Royal Wedding parade route will be lined with thousands of people, screaming with cameras in hand, hoping to catch a glimpse of the newlywed couple.

Details on the exact Royal Wedding parade route have yet to be released (top secret like the wedding dress) the journey typically follows a path that will past many famous London landmarks. The Royal Wedding parade route will begin at Westminster Abbey, the official church of the royal family where the wedding ceremony is set to take place. The newlywed couple will emerge from the church; Im hoping it will look like the scene from the movie "The Color Purple" when Ms Sofia marries Harpo and turns around and said "I is married now ".

After leaving the church a grand carriage procession will begin . The route will pass through Parliament Square, Whitehall, and the Mall before it ends at the site of the Royal Wedding reception, Buckingham Palace. The couple will make their final public appearance of the day from the balcony of Buckingham Palace, where they are sure to blow air kisses for the cameras and wave to the crowd.

Vacation and The Chipped Tooth, Chicago Style !!

Sorry my friends that this week there was no monarchy monday. I was on vacation last week  in Chicago, had a wonderful time. During my trip I broke my tooth, second day in Chicago and what happens, my tooth cracks  !!  Must have been the cracked pepper, lodged itself in the small crack on my tooth and when I bit down, CRACK  the tooth chipped off, about the size of a piece of rice. Well, I returned from vacation late monday night, worked tuesday and wednesday I went to the Dentist office. The Dentist worked on my tooth, now I have a temporary crown, I think the dentist visit hurt more then when the tooth broke. My mouth hurts and pain killers keep the pain away but make me sleepy so  I have not had a chance to blog. Fear not, Monarchy Monday will return next week, we only have three more left before the big wedding day !
