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 used to write a lot of letters and still have boxes and boxes of unused stationary. In this world of email, IM, SMS, Facebook, Twitter etc. who has time to even sit down with a pen and paper anymore? My penmanship, which I’ve always been proud of, has now been reduced to a scrawl in shortform, no doubt.

I only realized this when I forgot to buy a card for a friend for his birthday, not because I wanted to send birthday wishes (which leads to another thing I hate – don’t include a card if you’re just going to write “Dear xxx” at the top and “from XXX” at the bottom. If you’re going to do that, just use a gift tag, seeing how it’s $5 per Hallmark greeting. WRITE SOMETHING PERSONAL!!!!!!) – ok rant over.So I forgot to get a card, and I did have something meaningful to give and say to him (“from one tea connoisseur to another, here’s a fab tea from France I picked especially for you”) I pulled out my blank notecards from Crane’s (I prefer the simple, elegant stationary – I get bored of the whimsical quickly) and started writing. The scrawl wasn’t too bad, but I missed it and started digging up my other letter writing materials – monogrammed notecards (need more!), Hello Kitty stationary (need to get rid of those)… and happened upon scented stationary. Sure they made their appearance in Legally Blonde 1, but they’ve been around forever. I used to spritz my letters with perfume, but because I write with fountain pens (sigh) it ran. But now the Soap and Paper Factory has come out with stationary scented with orange blossom, green tea, fig, rosewood etc. I don’t think I can resist, maybe even at $48 a box (!). Available at Wish.list Boutique, 2811 W. Broadway (at MacDonald), Vancouver, 604-676-8070. www.wishlistboutique.ca

Also on the list, more personalized stationary from Cranes.

OMG calling cards! It’s so East Coast! (I’ve been

re-reading Bergdorf Blondes) And OMG x10 I think

I’ve found my dream stationary! Pink and simple!

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!

I’m not a huge MAC fan, in fact, I return at least 50% of all my MAC purchases. BUT sometimes they come out with some good stuff, and this is a MUST BUY for me. Lavender Whip lip creme (x1), and a milky pink Ever So Rich cremesheen glass (x2-3). Is this limited edition?

UPDATE March 5: Lavender Whip went really well with my Valentine’s Day all black punk outfit, as well as the birthday full length garden party dress at the Shangri La. Heard on Specktra that this layers well with other browns and pinks!

Horoscope:

The stars will favor all your endeavors: don’t have doubts about your capacities; you have every chance to succeed in whatever you undertake. You may be admitted into a very closed circle, and you’ll have a great feeling of pride and security. In your work, this will be the ideal time to achieve the project dearest to your heart and to promote your personal initiatives. Don’t ever allow the past to haunt you, otherwise you’ll create many worries for yourself. Good health conditions.

Yes, the techie granted me a Blackberry Curve (that I don’t really need because my old one worked but it was unattractive) today! After too much stalking, bothering, whining….

Though I’d never admit it, I love my UGGS. I wear them in winter (they have no traction, BTW), slip them on in the summer (hey… they’re Australian surfer boots) and just love love love them. I have a sand pair (need new ones) and a raspberry. And I never, never wear them with socks. They are to be worn commando and they make you feel like you’re walking on clouds.

The UGG Fall collection is available at Nordstoms for pre-order. Hm, the anniversary sale is coming up on July 18th. Perhaps they will be on sale then?

I must get a pair of any of these:
