I've been wanting to read The Ocean at the End of the Lane ever since my dear friend, Kira, told me of its existence. Neil Gaiman is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers. I recently read American Gods and loved its general radness immensely.
this ring from paper & chain has been on my wishlist for a while now. I love jewelery with raw, natural elements.
this print by Wesley Bird hits just the right wanderlust and Tolkien nerd spots simultaneously.
these flats from Modcloth would be so perfect for early Autumn. When the semester begins, I'm going to need more of a professional flair for when I'm teaching freshmen students French.
bath bomb from The Lemon Dahlia sounds like it smells amazing. I love taking fancy baths. The only way a bath with this bath bomb would be better is if I had me a cup of tea and was reading a good book. Fancy literary bathtub tea party. Yes, I believe that would suit me.
Ben and I are thinking of looking for a dog (or two) as soon as I drive back up to Salt Lake this weekend. He's always had poodles, and I, though decidedly a cat person (who still loves dogs), have always been fond of corgis. Originally we were hoping to adopt a cat, but we found out we can't have them where we live, so now I'm looking forward to making friends with a little pup, and this adorable collar would make a perfect gift for our future new addition.
this post that Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky wrote a while back, I've really been wanting to read Quiet by Susan Cain. I'm definitely an introverted person, and growing up I felt a bit pressured to behave in a more extroverted way. By doing so I've come across some great opportunities, but that comes with the unpleasantness of feeling like a phony at times. It's nice to see something that praises being quiet, thoughtful, and self-sufficient for a change.
mini planters from Wind and Willow are just lovely. I've been slowly collecting plants to put in the apartment, and these would be perfect for little green things.
this skirt is just plain groovy, and I'm SOOOO MAD that it's no longer available for purchase. I would have worn the hell out of this skirt this autumn, damn.
dress is absolutely dreamy, and again, so perfect for early fall. Burgundy is definitely one of my colors.
Well, there you have it, a list of stuff. And things. To enjoy...mmmyep.
