happy days!

it was a beautiful day, cold and grey but still heart warming. i received 2 presents today which totally lighten my mood (& i bought the third which makes it a happy ending!):

my friend picked up a copy of the YSL spring summer 2009 manifesto outside high street kensington station on feb 14th, and passed it to me today. i've been out and about on that day but no luck in meeting those distributing the manifesto.

the irony is that she picked it up, no idea what the manifesto is, who that blonde bombshell on the cover is, but thought it's something i really like, and made the effort to lug it around town and try not to crumple it. i heart a lot, thanks cher!

this came in the mail today! reader marcus from san francisco sent me a very lovely package. i am so excited!! more soon!

i told myself not to buy anything today. i walked away from the limited edition mango men's items (which i thought was nice but way overpriced). i walked away from the really nice slouchy leather bag from zara, which i thought it's nice but i don't really need it (*gasp* about needs now??!). but couldn't resist anymore when i saw this pair of bottega veneta shoes reduced by 50%, this pair that i've always wanted!!! more soon!

trivia trivia: it's the first day of the month, and apparently if you say "white rabbits" the first thing when you wake up, you will have good luck for the rest of the month. it's 2am now, am going to bed and i am so writing a post-it note and sticking it to my forehead to remind myself! trivia as provided by the very superstitious cher who gave me the YSL manifesto, so i feel obliged to try!

sweet dreams...
