friday, i’m in love


  • Don’t you think all mail should come with gold confetti streamers? It sure would make bills more enjoyable to open. I picked these up from b is for bonnie when she was having a sale a few weeks ago. (extra fab? use the code GRATEFUL for 20% off your purchase, valid though Sunday, November 17 at 11:59pm EST)
  • A perfect horoscope from Madame Clarevoyant to kick off year 30. Scorpio: This is a week for making your world beautiful and bright and good; it’s a week for you to do what you can to make your world into a place where you can live. It’s a week for decorating your house or for painting the walls or hanging curtains. It’s a week for listening to Motown while you move your furniture around and around and around until it’s right. Paint your nails or buy yourself a new pair of pants or clean your windows and watch how warm and sweet your kitchen and bathroom and world look in this sunlight.
  • These DIY monogram ornament gift tags – how perfect and beautiful! (and I imagine if you’re a crafting newbie can be done with a gold felt marker or some gold paint or a glue pen and some glitter)
  • Talking about gorgeous Christmas bling; how lovely is everything at Chapters.Indigo right now? books + decor = love. There is a holiday Chapters.Indigo catalogue with $10 off $50 purchase coupon (valid till Nov 27) in the holiday LCBO Food & Drink magazine. You’re welcome!
  • “I don’t think there is ever a wrong time for a polka dot.” – Marc Jacobs. (YES; love this man. And love his original Marc Jacobs perfume, so lovely)
  • Did you know Love, Actually was released in theatres 10 (TEN!!) years ago? Here are 14 times Love, Actually lied to us about love. (seriously, someone is welcome to profess their love for me on cue cards with cute Christmas music any day now…)
  • The really great message from Tara and the I’m Fit Possible team: let’s celebrate this holiday season not make ourselves feel guilty about missing a workout, indulging in the extra whip or the 3rd sugar cookie!
  • And Target? I’ve stood by you while a lot of people I know were a little harsh about what made it into Canadian stores. But searching #targetdoesitagain on instagram makes me all sorts of sad. Know what? NONE (ok, hardly any) of these gorgeous things are in my Target, I know cause I looked for them yesterday morning. (sad panda.) (Do you think I can make it work for a month with a pair of jeans, t-shirt, and a dress so I can buy allthethings at Target in Georgia next month and fit them into a carry-on?) (But also, I guess, thanks?! Cause I probably don’t need/have room for all the cute Christmas decor in the US stores)
  • Looking to save a few dollars at Starbucks? Who isn’t? Get your favourite holiday syrup in a misto or drip coffee. Currently loving holiday blond roast + caramel brulee syrup.
  • Need a weekend read? I just bought the e-book version “The Theory of Opposites” by Allison Winn Scotch – one of my fave authors – for $2.99 (or $3.12 in Canada)!! (Don’t have a kindle? download the app and read kindle books on your tablet.) I’m 9 chapters in, and loving it so far.
