Sharing the four fave things that have consumed my life lately.
1. Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick. $31 CAD.
Why I love it? The Introduction starts with the following list:
- braid hair
- arrange books by colour
- feng shui room
- magazine collage
- lie in yard with Walkman
With the exception of the Walkman (still a youngin’ with the Discman), I 100% could’ve written that list of fave things myself. Anna is fun, honest and so relatable. I feel like I’m chatting with my bestie. I finally made time to start reading this book and I am so happy I did.
2. Fodor’s Italy by Fodor’s Travel Guide. $28 CAD.
Why I love it? I am knee deep in planning for my travels. While online itineraries, travel blogs and forums are all well and good, there’s something to be said about a comprehensive book on where to stay, what to eat, and what to do written by locals. Can a Google search tell me that Caffe Florian is one of Italy’s first cafes? Sure. But what it won’t say is: “Because of the prices and the tourist mobs, Venetians tend to avoid cafe in the Piazza San Marco. But when they want to indulge and regain control of their city, they go to Florian… with its glittering neo-Baroque decor and attractive 19th-century wall panels, it’s undisputedly the most beautiful.” I’ll take this description over the Google star rating thx.
3. 2016-2017 Ban.Do Classic Agenda, Party Dots by Ban.Do. $26 CAD (Sale $13 CAD).
Why I love it? As much as I love my Kate Spade agendas of previous years… this one has stickers. And “Get ’em, gurl” motivational quotes. And cool AF illustrations. I don’t know how I’d survive without an agenda. I scribble appointments, meetings, to-do’s and basically diarize my professional and personal life. How adult. Also, did I mention this one has stickers?
4. True Love Wedding Planner by C.R. Gibson. $54 CAD.
Why I love it? As soon as C and I got engaged, my bestie gifted me with this handy dandy planner. Honestly, it has saved my life. I do a lot of email correspondence with vendors and the venue, but there’s something about flipping through this planner and seeing things filled out, images added, and sample invites stuffed in pockets that make me think: progress. ❤
Hope everyone has a great weekend! I’ll be home with my head in the books!
