3 Things Thursday: The Blues

I’m feeling blue today. My favourite blog of all time Young House Love announced that they are closing up shop today. I’ve been following their blog for 6 years and it is one of the few that I never miss; I read each and every post all the way through. I’m actually quite heartbroken by this news. 

Moving along from my depressing rambles, I do have 3 Things to share with you this week. However, they just don’t seem as exciting as they might have been if I hadn’t just heard the news that made me blue. Wow…maybe I should write some sad love poems today? On that note, 3 Things….

? Birthday Dresse(s)
It’s my birthday weekend, so following a tradition, I headed to the mall last night to get myself a birthday dress. Since I had a 30% coupon from Old Navy that was my first stop. Sadly, this season the dress collection at ON is a bit frumpy for my taste. On a whim though I stopped at LOFT (I’ve never bought anything there before) and walked out with 4 dresses!

Now before you think I’ve lost my shopping marbles, they were having an amazing sale (which I believe runs through the weekend). All their sale items are an additional 30% off, and if you spend $150 you get $75 off. So using a little shopping math – which is my superpower, I walked out of the store in 40 minutes with 4 dresses totaling $108. Now I just have to choose which one I’m going to wear for my birthday.

? Diwali Prep
I visited Ikea last weekend and picked up a new collection of candles, votive holder, and trays for Diwali. This weekend I’m going to get the kids started on painting diyas and prepping the house. You could say I’m a little excited!


? A Fun New Client
On Tuesday I spent the day wandering around Yaletown with Mr. T, some salads from Saladworks, and our photographer Aziz taking social media images for the restaurant. It feels like our business is expanding in the food industry, and I’m not complaining about that!

    I’ve said it before – I will say it again. Raj, you are my soul sister. I love YHL too and was literally at Ikea yesterday browsing their gold star candle holders. How do we end up loving and doing the same things without even knowing about it!? <3
