Swit-swoo - check out you and your fabulous hair!
Today I'm sharing three things which are currently forming the icing on my Life Cake*.
1. Attempting to be green fingered
By planting up our supermarket herbs in a giant baked bean tin, and willing them not to die. As you can see, the poor coriander is already on its last legs! At least it will go out looking fabulous.
Please note I said attempting - hence the Wonderland-style reminder on the label.
2. The perfect free-zine
I devoured the latest issue of Heart Home magazine over breakfast on Sunday, and found myself poring over every single page. It was as if it had been designed just for me, so of course I'm now wondering whether I'm the lead in a literary version of The Truman Show. Narcissist much?
I would heartily (gettit?) recommend that you give it a read, if only for the fireplace leopards and fancy-pants outdoor chandelier. It's free by the way!
3. Groupie pants
The Brighton Etsy Party I attended in June was sponsored by Lush, and they'd replaced the bathroom soap with chunks of Rock Star. When I realised I was physically resisting sniffing my hands in public, I decided I should probably invest in some myself (so I could smell my hands in private to my heart's content, obviously).
I treated myself to a chunk soon afterwards, but couldn't bear to actually use it! Mostly because it's too darn pretty, but also because it's a fair bit more expensive than our regular soap. Instead, I put the still-wrapped bar in my underwear drawer, because the cherry-scented bags I made last August have lost their smell. I'm sure you can guess how much the smell has permeated the fabric, given that the shops can be smelt from sixty miles away, and I'm LOVING the fact that all of my underwear smells like Rock Star. Mostly because it's hilarious.
What awesome things have you discovered recently?
* I'm very glad that human lives aren't actually made of cake. I think I'd end up becoming an accidental murderer; and pleading innocence on the grounds of a sugar addiction probably wouldn't work.
