Wow, look, we made it to Friday again! I hope you've got some wonderful things planned for the long weekend (if you're in Australia, that is) or just the same if your weekend is just one of those regular two-day ones as well!
I love to include a bit of gratitude in my weekly Favourite Things, because it's easy to forget to be grateful in our busy lives. This week I just HAD to share this little video about gratitude with you. Pretty epic stuff, friends!
This week, I am most grateful for the simply spectacular people in my life (both online and in 'real life'). I'm trying something out at the moment (I'll explain more about this soon) and it is really wonderful when the vibes you're putting out are met with such overwhelming gratitude. So basically, I'm grateful for gratitude.
Lesson learned: What you give out, you will get back in return.
Also, I finally started my photography course this week after putting it off for three months. I got the reading done, did the assignment, submitted it, and got the marks back in one weekend and did surprisingly well.
Lesson learned: putting things off is just silly. Get it done and you will feel SO MUCH BETTER!
Here are some other things I'm loving:
This Molten Store notebook (and basically everything else in their online store). I feel as though it would be necessary to come up with some extra special things to write in it. It's on my 'to buy' list this week for sure!
Do you love Etsy like I love Etsy? Well, if you haven't checked out their blog, you should. It's jam packed with success stories, tips from other creative businesses, and just full of inspiration. This post on Little Canoe is beautiful – as is Brooke, the shop's owner, and her INCREDIBLE studio. LOVE. Want.
Ah, everything is better said in French, don't you agree? Oui, oui. (From here)
Other favourite things:
Being part of The Storytellers on Naomi's blog // long weekends // lots of tea to warm me up in a cold, cold office // cool iPhone cases // daylight savings // Masterchef The Professionals // pay day // compliments from strangers // sunny days // rainy days // high waisted jeans // true friendship
ONE last thing! Through My Looking Glass is quickly creepy up on 200 likes on Facebook! I've got 30 to go and my goal is to get there before the end of February. I post lots of stuff that doesn't ever make it here and it would be mean SO much (if you don't already) to join in over there, share the page with friends, or click the nifty little share button below my posts to help me smash this goal! Thank you!!!
Have a fab weekend, lovelies!
