|I bought one more thing, but it's already at the office.|
I wore one of my dresses from my Boxing Day shopping for the first time. Because nothing says Italian like western wear.
|Rock Steady western-style dress: Rowena Edmonton|
I painted my nails bright yellow on the weekend to help me keep my fingers out of my mouth, but today (Tuesday) they're already majorly chipping after a base coat, two colour coats and a top coat! But here they are in better days.
BUT! Back to shopping.
I went in with the intention to buy this to-do list that doubles as a mouse pad, and I did and it's already at my office.
But then G spied the sale rack and neither of us can really resist that. So I picked up this little magnetic whiteboard thing for making grocery lists:
And this hardcover notebook, which is clearly awesome because it is bright red and has a typewriter on it. It's for when my current notebook at work runs out. Yes I could use the notebooks that the company provides for us, but I'm picky like that. Besides, I beat the crap out of my notebooks so I needed a hardcover, heavy-duty one.
And then I was about to pay, I swear, when I saw the book The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt. I think I saw this on someone's blog or in a magazine or something but I can't remember.
But as soon as I saw the cover in Chapters I grabbed it.
It chronicles the life of a teen in the 1920s and is filled with vintage photos! I haven't cracked it yet as I just started another book and I have a rule about reading two books at once, but I will let you know what I think of it. I just had to buy it instead of finding it for Kindle or at the library, because I knew I would want to own it for the pictures.
And now you know my greatest bookstore weakness: cool notebooks, stationary and cute vintage books. What are yours?
PS - this was my 99th post! Be prepared for a big post for number 100.
