perhaps the term bright pastels is a bit of an oxymoron, but i quite like it.
more beautiful creations from sarah abbott, what a talent

it’s almost a month till christmas. and if your supermarkets are anything like ours, you’ve been bombarded with christmas music since october. if only they’d play this holiday album from target, filled with tunes from rad bands like wavves, best coast and coconut records amongst others. you’ll be able to download the songs for free on 28 november.
uh oh, you’re about to be bombarded with more stuff i want. such a greedy person.
the same sort of applies to this eau de toilette. it can smell like eau de toilet for all i care (har har har)
really like these engraved goods from in god we trust
these beyond radical sleeping bags!
banker’s envelope from jack spade
animals boxes – if only i had a mantelpiece to put them on
and anything by eskell
mostly everything discovered thanks to my new best friend, svpply.
whenever my friend and i watch a period drama the same discussion will always ensue. she’ll lament that we were born in the wrong era and talk about how happy we’d be if we could live in those times. i’ll try to convince her that we’d be bored out of our minds with just sewing and wandering around in gardens to keep us occupied. she’d rebut with the opinion that if sewing and garden wandering was all we ever knew we’d be content. i’d remind her that you’d have to be (a) rich or (b) married rich to actually enjoy worry free sewing and garden wandering. she’d say that being rich is a positive, not a negative. i’d remind her that we’d have to play lots of card games and that she hated them. she’d remind me i loved card games. and so it went on.
i secretly agreed with her though, living on a country estate in those days must have been pretty damn sweet. IF you were rich and got to picnic all day and other people made your meals for you.
on that note, did anyone watch the latest glee with gwyneth? i thought it very cringey. what happened glee!
