Things that I’m loving this week!
x Invites To Blogger-Only Events – Yes! Ooh! To the tune of The Pointer Sisters: I’m so excited; and I just can’t hide it; I’m-probably-going-to-spill-my-drink-or-food-or-both-everywhere-and-look-like-a-colossal-dork-but-I-still-think-I’ll-like-it!
Oh, the NERVES! The very lovely company who were kind enough to send me THIS amazing haul a few months ago are throwing a blogger-only event at Brad Ngata’s Hair Direction studio in Surry Hills next Sunday, and in addition to it sounding like a truly fabulous (albeit intimidating!) soiree`, featuring none other than a host of some of Sydney’s finest writers (and, uh, me), they’re also sending us to Benefit’s beauty salon prior to the event for a complimentary brow wax/shape/tint/arch or eyelash treatment, before whisking us away to the studio in a car! @*#&! I’m bringing one of my best friends as my wing/“uh, Corrine? You have something stuck in your teeth!” woman, and I’ll will be trying to take photos aplenty!
x Secret Love Notes – Awww, jeez! This was hidden in the pocket of my dress on Tuesday:
x Other Little Things – Stumbling across fun little boutiques; chocolate horseshoe biscuits; filling my Ipod with new tunes; sitting up until the early hours of the morning tearing out pictures from magazines to create new inspiration boards; counting down the days to my holiday (it’s almost eleven weeks away!); new bed linen (and only $13, too! Madness!); Daisy Lowe; and fresh, iridescent flowers on my kitchen windowsill:
This Week –
x I Can’t Stop Listening To – Faith No More, Muse, Atmosphere’s The River (an old favourite!), Nine Inch Nails and Al Green!
Suggestions For The Weekend Ahead –
x Cull the clutter! The thirty plus people on your Facebook account that cause you to scratch your head and think “wait a minute – how did YOU get on here?!’‘ each time their name pops up in your news feed? The four month old moisturiser which promised to remove under-eye circles but prompts you to shriek “lies!” every time you see it on your bathroom shelf? Why do you need them? Bon voyage, crappy-$2-nail-polish-I’ve-had-since-I-wore-it-to-a-dress-up-party-when-I-was-16!
x Vow to take more photos! Of the simple moments (sitting around make-up less eating breakfast?), of the glorious moments (an excellent night out?), and of the tender moments (lying in bed the morning after?). Create photographic evidence of the life that you’re living!
x Dress in a nod to the season that you’re experiencing. Berry nails and warm scarves for winter? A flower in your hair for summer? A cocktail umbrella pinned to your dress?!
Happy weekend! How was your week?
