This time of year, I rely on hobbies and little projects to keep my days filled with joy. I hope you are finding new joys as well!
1. A gold disco ball. I’m so happy!
2. Vintage brass objects make me so happy!
3. I love wearing dad hats.
4. I just ordered my kids some little Stanley cups. So cute!
5. I really want to try making creme brulee for Valentine’s Day.
6. My goals for this year are all creative and to hold myself accountable. I am using a habit tracker—have you tried it?
7. I recently got my colors analyzed, and I’m a deep Autumn. It’s helping me shop smarter with less regrets and items I don’t reach for. I think we will talk more about it on the podcast soon!
8. I’m not in the market for a new sofa, but this striped sofa from Anthroplogie is so pretty and unique!
10. This is the BEST book I have read all year! If you’ve read it, I’d love to hear what you think.
P.S. Here are a some recent posts in case you missed them!
You can buy teeny self adhesive mirror squares and disco ball whatever you want. Amazon of course. Those round glass vases at Michaels are perfect. And frames from the Dollar 25 store. It makes for a super fun easy crafty event. I have rose gold and silver and now it looks like I have to buy gold.
Reading Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow now and loving it.
Curious to know where the framed floral print is from in the post image! Gorge.
My family started doing color analysis to help us choose what clothes and makeup to wear back in the early 1990s when I was a teen using a book my mom found. Now I can instantly tell when someone is wearing the wrong color for their skin and hair tones . Wearing the correct colors makes a HUGE difference in how you feel about yourself and how others see you. I really do hope you do a post or a podcast on this topic because it saves so much time choosing clothes, makeup, hair dye etc and it also deeply changes how good you feel when you wear colors that suit you. It also helps you avoid buying trendy colors that actually look awful on you.
I loved that book!!!! One thing that Sadie says about her little girl is that calling a character’s personality early in a game forecloses opportunities for that character later, so she tried not to impose identities on her daughter. I loved that sentiment.
SUCH a good book. Reminded of A Little Life the way it followed friends. So beautiful and heart breaking all at the same time xoxo
Always look forward to Sunday so I can read your Ten Things list!
Laffed out loud at cups for kids as here in Canada, the Stanley Cup is a whole other thing!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all at ABM
Thank you for sharing the habit tracker! I just started working from home and have been looking for something to help keep me on track and focused on my daily routines. I love it!
