Blog Housekeeping Notes

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

How is it already October?! I have no idea where this week went and I'm way behind in my blog schedule and my life is generally a bit all over the place at the moment. So I thought a quick hello was in order. I'm leaving for Canada in just a few days (!) and I'd really like to finish with the honeymoon photos so I'm not behind two trips when I get back. There's just so much I want to blog about! I think I'm going to post a bunch and then post-date them and pre-date them so they look all orderly and like I know what I'm doing. And that way it won't be too quiet around here while I'm gone. Sound ok? Just so we all know what's up. I'm also thinking that when I get back I should start doing some more 'regular feature' type things so I'm not just rambling all the time. What do you think? Anything you especially like reading about? In other news, I'm getting a bit more social media savvy, so you can also find me more on Pinterest (so addictive!) and Twitter if you miss me too much. Ok, I'll stop now. 

Edit: So it's the night before I'm leaving and I'm still behind on my honeymoon posts. Typical. I think it might be a good project for all those hours on the plane tomorrow. I'm not sure how much I'll be posting while I'm away but I'll come up with something eventually. Sorry for being such a bad blogger!

Wish List

Wish List

It seems to be that there are two kinds of girls in this world - those who love summer and those who love fall. I am definitely in the latter camp. October is my favourite month for all the classic reasons - crisp leaves, cozy layers, hot drinks and bonfires. But it's also my birthday month. Now usually I don't make *that* much of a fuss over it and these days my family and I exchange experience presents instead of things but I thought I would make a little list of dream presents. I like giving (and ok, also getting) presents of little luxuries, things you wouldn't usually buy for yourself. Lately it seems like I'm into all things pretty and sweet so here are some things I wouldn't mind having:

1. OLO sample kit - As much as I like the idea of having a signature scent, I'm much too indecisive to choose one of these amazing sounding perfumes.
2. The Gentlewoman magazine - Magazines are one of my favourite indulgences and The Gentlewoman is one of the best. Too bad it costs a million dollars here!
3. Lingerie - Lately I keep seeing high waisted underwear and lacy black bras that I love. These are from Agent Provocateur but I wouldn't say no to some from The Loved One or Fortnight either.
4. Macarons - I much prefer something sweet over chocolate and I don't think anything is better than a good macaron. 
5. Cashmere socks - What's not to like? These would be great for under boots or for around the house on rainy days.
6. Washi tape - I've been wanting some washi tape for ages. I think I'll pick up some (maybe in neon pink?) for hanging up pictures and little scraps around my desk. 
7. Silk scarf - I fell in love with these hand marbled scarves by Ilana Kohn as soon as I saw them. They are one of those pieces that you would have forever.
