If you’re anything like me words can be a powerful motivator. When I’m feeling down or icky a simple inspiring quote can brighten my mood or dull whatever is irking me. They’re also perfect when you’re feeling not so wonderful and need reassurance that everything is going to be okay!
If you didn’t know, E and I live in a teeny tiny one bedroom apartment. So small that majority of our furniture lives all over the district, stored with different family members. It’s perfect for us because it is in prime location, we have river views from the driveway and the rent is quite low. Whilst there are so many perks to living “compact” we don’t have a second bedroom to use as an office so ALL of my blogging is completed on the couch, in my bed or wherever I’m sitting when inspiration strikes. But this weekend E and I worked out we had the room in our bedroom for a desk, and you have no idea how ecstatic that made me. I was finally going to have my own blogging corner! I’m pretty easy to please!
I few months ago I attended the Love Thread x Esther Foundation ‘Pretty In Pink Girls Night In’ (more on the event here). One thing that really struck me about the wonderful charity event was the amount of time and effort that went into creating a girly, pink haven at Hello Parry HQ.
I spend ages choosing greeting cards for my people. l look for something eccentric, personal and not your run of the mill Hallmark. I like cards that speak from the heart and have that extra little bit of quirk. And of course, I love shopping local. When E and I celebrated our three year anniversary in February, I knew the card needed to be something special. Something meaningful and very “us”.
Now readers, I want to get you thinking. As you may know from my previous post, my favourite piece of stationary is my Kikki K A Sentence A Day notebook.
I’m a stationary fanatic, especially if it is cute, and kikki K is one of my favourite stationary haunts.
