This week has been a very busy week for me. I was drowning in reports and projects that were consuming my days and nights. I finally got some time this weekend to catch up and also to literally catch my breath. Between all the craziness, the endless meetings and triple shot espresso coffees, I've found a few things this week that brought me some smiles. Now, I'm not sure why but most of the stuff that I am loving right now are in hues of pink. Perhaps because Valentines Day is just around the corner. Either way, I am currently finding the color pink inspiring, which is very weird for me because I admit that I am that person that LOATHES the color pink. I guess you can still teach an old dog new tricks.
I very recently brought on a new letterpress card brand called Egg Press. Their cards are adorable and express exactly my thoughts without over communicating. I think this "DAAAANG" card has the right amount of spunk and in just one word, it speaks volumes (main image). You can see the rest of the selection for sale here ----> www.shutupilovethis.com
I've always had an obsession with lip balm and lip plumpers. I think I may have been addicted to plumpers one point in time. I also don't typically like spending a lot of money on lip goodies but I am very glad that I splurged on the Dior Addict Lip Glow Balm. This sheer balm enhances your natural lip color while moisturizing and protecting the skin with SPF 10. You can get yours at your nearest Sephora or Shoppers Drug Mart of course!
This past year, I was lucky enough to be gifted with two Auxiliary leather hand bags by Aritzia. I have a medium sized one in black and a larger tote version in burgundy. The black Bega bag I use for every day and the tote version I carry during the week for work. It fits all my note books and papers with out compromising fashion. I'm impressed by the quality of these hand bags and they are the optimal shape. I'm happy to see that they've now made it in a mini version, even more optimal for everyday use!
The most colourful stationery store opened up in Pacific Centre Mall called Campo Marzio. They offer up a wonderful selection of note pads, tech leather accessories as well as gorgeous ball point and fountain pens. I've never owned a fountain pen, let alone written with one and my fiance gifted me one as a present for my work anniversary. It takes a little getting use to but once you get the handle of writing with a fountain pen, you'll love the characteristics of the ink to paper better than a regular ball point pen.
Last but not least....Nothing beats fresh flowers and this pretty bouquet caught my eye from Celsia Floral located in the heart of Kitsilano. This pretty number is appropriately named, "Strawberries and Cream". This would be a home run for any time of the year, not just for Valentines Day!
Love & Light, S
