SPEAK Bands Are In…!

by Lori Dwyer on September 29, 2011 · 18 comments

After chasing me halfway around the countryside, from Paradise to TinyTrainTown, RRSAHM Speak bands are finally in…

I stole this piccie from UnderTheYardarm… because it’s a good one.

Initially inspired by this post, Speak, and the brain child of the lovely Mary, Speak bands have become quite a hit and I’ve had a lot of requests for more.

So… for your very own Speak band, to wear with purple pride…

Send a stamped, self addressed envelope to… 

PO Box 153
Picton NSW 2571 

The bands are light and flexie, so the cost of regular postage, and I’m happy to post them back to where ever int he world you may be. 

I would really love it if as many of you took me up on this offer as possible, and helped spread the word… all this pain, it can’t have been in vain. If nothing else, I’ll make sure of that.


 On a different note, I was recently sent this absolutely beautiful piece of jewelery- it’s a piece of Silver with Character by Koolaman Designs.

I got to choose the inscription myself…. in case you can’t read that tiny silver stamped print, it says “All you need is love.”

Because I’m a hopeless optimist, and a useless romantic, I still believe in that.

And what does a social media addict do when she thinks she might be ready to date again….? She goes online, of course.

The adventures of Lori, Internet Dating Goddess (or something like that)… coming soon.

Perhaps this is a stupid question, but just how much postage does one need to send a self addressed and stamped envelope from the States to Australia?

I'd love a band. In fact, I would wear two! But not sure sending an envelope with NZ stamps on it to get back to me would be much help. Any other way I can get one? (Or two!?) Lisa.

Good for you Lori! Internet dating is all the go for us busy mums! I met my hubby through there… not directly, but he had a date with a friend but we're the ones who hit it off lol….so, I say go for it, do what feels right for you and your kiddies xoxo.

As for the speak bands… awesome!!! My dad committed suicide close to 18 months ago now, so yes, it needs to be out there. How many can you send in an envelope? Would I be able to get a few by any chance? xoxo Cass

Oh I noticed you wearing that necklace Friday night and thought it beautiful! And great work on the SPEAK bands too – everything you have said & done since will ensure it will not all be in vain x

Lovely to see you last night Lori. So hope the internet dating thing rocks for you.

I've just started a series on my online dates too. Good writing fodder!! http://lionjumper.wordpress.com/2011/09/27/a-date-with-scott/

Can't wait to compare stories :P

Gorgeous necklace Lori :)
I really wish you well with your online dating adventure- mine has been awful – see latest blog post. Keep your heart safe. xx

How much are the bands?? :-)


Melissa September 30, 2011 at 3:04 am

Oh lovely Lori – if you believe in love – than I think we ALL should believe in love :)
I'd be happy to be your US distributor if you're looking for a volunteer :)

Love the necklace! Idea – which I have not thought out at all — have a US "distributor" that you can send a bunch to and then people could mail that person a stamped envelope? I don't think we could send you an envelope with our stamps, and we couldn't even send along an envelope with $$ for postage because it would be the wrong money!

internet dating….crack up! just because i can imagine your stories.. in fact, one of my dearest friends wrote an article for her student magazine about her 'list' – its rather hilarious so if you feel like a laugh – http://www.salient.org.nz/features/an-uncomfortably-personal-account-of-my-own-folly-and-the-tossers-i-have-known-2

nonetheless, good on you!!! xxxx

I'll be stealing a stamp from work tomorrow to get me one of those bands!
And also, i'm wishing you the best of luck with the internet dating – and dont listen to all the horror stories. Mick and I met on Lavalife, fell pregnant 6 weeks into our relationship, and now we have a 21 mth old and their is only 5 weeks til our wedding!

Good luck with all that.

Internet dating? Hmmm,

Actually, to be honest, I'm a bit jealous…..if only I were the one taking you out, on this date.

Cos, I think you're just wonderful. Seriously, I do. You'd be super company.
Still……..I look forward to the stories!


Miss Pink September 29, 2011 at 4:54 pm

Internet dating?!
You are so doing this just for our amusment right? It will make for some great stories!

You so don't need it though ;)


Think Left and Think Right September 29, 2011 at 3:54 pm

I've asked my Australian sweetie to send one to you and bring the result to me when he visits. I'd like to spread this to the US, in my quiet little way.


Wanderlust September 29, 2011 at 3:39 pm

Gorgeous necklace! I want one of your bands. Will you be at Problogger by chance? I'm going to rendezvous with my online dude after the conference. Will let you know how it goes! :)


Crystal September 29, 2011 at 10:45 pm

Oh, Lori! That is awesome that you're going to get out there and try dating again. From one hopeless optimist/useless romantic to another, I sincerely, from the bottom of my sappy little heart, wish you the best of luck. I truly, truly want something (or perhaps I should say someone) amazing to come your way. HUG!!!
