Song: The Boy Who Murdered Love

3 Jun

From UK X-Factor’s Diana Vickers. Love the style of this video. Very Dace Spring 2010 – I’ve fallen in love with Lili Bulle btw. Great music for those warm lazy hazy days.

Stationary part 2

I was so obsessed with letter writing that I used to seal my letters with wax and my personalized seal. Unfortunately, they crack when travelling through the mail, but I found these cute personalized stickers from Papyrus to seal my envelopes with! You can even customize to seal wedding invites!

I think I may have found my wedding dress

Jason Wu… but definitely as a wedding dress this would be more fancy.

With the wedding dress finalized, now it’s time to find a husband to match it!

Fave store: The New Eclectic

14 Jan

Passed by the New Eclectic on Granville today, mostly because I saw these gorgeous porcelain mugs with initials in 18th century French script that I just couldn’t pass up. I love anything personalized, only tastefully, of course. No rainbow coloured bookmarks or door signs, but stationary, anything embroidered or just anything that screams taste and that it’s mine.But I digress. I have decided that this is my new fave store – it’s decorated how I would love my bachelorette pad to be, boudoir style with Plum Sykes’ The Debutante Divorcee and Peter Post’s Essential Manners for Couples on the end table (both of which I picked up at bargain bin prices at Chapters today. I don’t usually talk prices, but around the $5 mark?)

Anyway, the store is gorgeous… filled with tableware, crystal

medallion bookmarks, candles and various tasteful this and thats. Everything in the store except for the cosmetics is 30% off! So I bought the Rosanna Initially Yours porcelain mugs and I overheard that they were bestsellers over the holidays and will be getting more in. And I was panicking thinking that they were clearing it out! Comes in these cute little boxes. Looking at the mugs, sometimes I wish that my parents chose a name for me that could be written beautifully, like V, or O…

And these beautiful hand poured soy wax candles from A Scent Of Scandal, with scandalous names and befitting accompanying scents such as MILF (milk and cookies),  Out of the Closet (Cedar), Original Sin (fig leaf), Knocked Up (baby powder), Walk of Shame (early morning dew), 8 Inches (banana), D-Cups (melons), One Night Stand (margaritas), Gold Digger (carat cake), Skinny Bitch (wafer)…a_scent_of_scandal

Truly original!
