bookshelf inspiration

Books are beautiful. I think I would pick a shelf of books over a piece of art any day. (That is, if the shelf looked like one of those below.) Tell me, which bookshelf do you like best? Do you like the floor-to-ceiling look or would you go with the lazily arranged spiral staircase option? While you’re at it, why not list a few of your favourite books? Currently, I’m liking Laura Barber’s “Poems for Life” and Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close”.

fin de la semaine

My new goal is to post at least once a week (hopefully every Sunday afternoon) . . . and I’m relying on you to hold me to it!!! My other goal is to have a closet like this one (above) someday. Imagine! It would be so easy to pick your outfits everyday (especially if all your dresses were so beautiful) and the string of clothes would double as a piece of art in your bedroom. Wonderful! Tell me, do you have any ideas of what your dream house would look like? Pam from “The Office” dreams of having a terrace outside her bedroom window, complete with colourful flowers. (Hilarious show – you can watch full episodes for free here.) Have a wonderful week!

toast

If ever I were to convert to the world of people who buy, buy, buy (even when their bank accounts are crying out in pain) it would be over the beautifully made clothing of Toast. But you would understand if I did, right? Just look at those soft linens and flowing skirts and colourful bangles and perfectly cut pants and … It’s a good thing that their stores are halfway around the world and that I’m too scared to order anything online.

do you have the time?

Lately I’ve been pestering everyone I know (and some that I don’t) to tell me the time. I feel helpless walking around all day without a watch. A few months ago I fell in love with a simple, metal, artsy-looking one, but of course it broke. I guess I was too lazy to replace it (or was still grieving my old watch – yes, I have separation issues) . But buying a watch is such a great dilemma. Think about it. Once you pick one, you are stuck with wearing it ALL THE TIME. I gaze enviously at those people who can pull out their fancy iPhones to check the time without having an annoying strap choking their wrist. However, I can’t even dream of affording such a gadget (and secretly think I am more unique than that). So I am resolved to choose another ticking device – one that will rest on my wrist from morning ’till dusk. Hopefully the pictures below will inspire me (and you too!). Which watch do you like best? Do you think I’m an idiot for spending so much time agonizing over this decision?
