Things I Love Thursday… And Also, Things You Love Thursday!

Hello, from a face made out of a booty! Hahaha. This photo made me laugh so hard when I saw it that I just had to feature it! It’s just so magnificent. I think everyone should surround their bums with tinsel at all times.

So, let’s switch it up. Instead of sharing my top five favourite things, I asked my Facebook babes what was making them happy today! I picked a few to share with you, and here they are…

Emma said, “Dancing, the feeling of a cool breeze on a warm day, messages from people you haven’t spoken to for a while, books and the great British bake off!”

Tawyna said, “Farmers On the Square Wednesdays (and getting to sell fresh local organic produce!) – a New Moon Intention circle with my 10 year old twin boys who were happy to participate! – second week tv-free and no one is complaining (not even the kids!) – long weekends – and most of all, awareness.”

Amanda said, “Just had ACL surgery yesterday, and I am grateful for my incredibly helpful husband, for fun diversions like The Kinky Coloring Book, not as much pain as I anticipated, great doctors, and the friends who have been checking up on me!”

Anastasia said, “Emojis. The invention of dressy jogging pants that I can wear to work. Another year gone by, my birthday was Tuesday. Lunch, because hunger. A shopping/spa day date with my mom this weekend. Oh and Opi’s You Don’t Know Jaques. xo”

Heather said, “Being able to do what I love every day (writing), starting my Gothic masters (and getting to read and watch Gothic books and films as research, every day magic, my husband/family/friends and living in a place with changing seasons.”


“Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth.” — Iyanla Vanzant

Little things I love… Last weekend’s Radical Self Love Salon — and the lovely ladies who attended — was wonderful. My next one is Sunday September 21st. Come and join us! Going to bed early — best feeling ever Doing advanced Pilates moves! Holy shit, so challenging, but so satisfying! The very sane men I have in my life Really and truly becoming one with our new couch Breaking in new shoes (okay, actually kind of painful, but they sure look cute!)  Little packets of chocolate almond butter, and chocolate hazelnut butter… Delightful!  Dramatic instrumental playlists to write along to  Gift magazine (get it!)  A huge stack of magazines, just waiting for me  Reading at night  Ordering custom confetti (squeak!) 

Things I would be cruel not to tell you… Sephora is having a 75% off sale (online only), and my favourite eye-cream is included! (Go get it, dark circle sufferers!) This is what my media kit looks like. I swear this abundance candle works. I just started using the StyleBook app, which is a way of organising your closet and planning your outfits. So cool. Yesterday, I photographed all my skirts… And I think it has immense potential! Elemoon is the most exciting Kickstarter I’ve seen in a long time. I think we should all be taking alchemy baths! Wanna join me? 

Eternal love,

Things I Love Thursday: Bright Lit Blue Skies

08.21.2014 · things i love thursday

This morning, Mike and I woke up and walked the dogs down to the East River. As we strolled and chatted, we played the gratitude game. It’s simple: all you have to do is name 5 things you’re thankful for in this very moment. It can be surprising how quickly it gets deep and meaningful, […]


Things I Love Thursday: Autumn Dreams

08.14.2014 · things i love thursday

This has been one of the most wonderful summers, but… I admit… I’m ready to start bundling up. Confession time: in Amsterdam, I bought this sweater. I’m stocking up on hats (I got this one in navy blue, and a bunch of new beanies). I’m looking lustily at blazers and stockings. This morning, as I […]


Things I Love Thursday: Groeten Uit Amsterdam!

07.31.2014 · things i love thursday

Groeten uit Amsterdam! We arrived in Holland yesterday, after an incredible few days in Berlin. We adventured as far and wide as we could, but feel like we barely even scraped the surface of Berlin. The love affair is in full effect! I was so sad to leave! (New dream: go back every year. Yes, please!) […]


Things I Love Thursday: A European Adventure!

07.24.2014 · things i love thursday

Good morning! Today is our last day in the U.K. before we jet off to Berlin tomorrow. I’m absolutely beside myself about going back to Germany — I love it there — and in addition to teaching there this weekend, we have Monday and Tuesday free to explore before we head to Amsterdam. The excitement, […]

Things I Love Thursday: Hot Nights And Rose Amethysts

07.03.2014 · things i love thursday

Tschüss from a very hot city! (Oh, don’t mind me: I’m practicing my very amateur Deutsch in preparation for our European adventure!) New York is doing its typical extreme-heat-mixed-with-thunderstorms summer thing, which is incredible, beautiful, and magical all at once. Last night, the sky glowed pink and purple, while huge forks of lightning cracked the […]


Things I Love Thursday: Throwing Stars!

06.26.2014 · things i love thursday

Aloha from beautiful New York City! The streets are hot and lively, lush greenery providing shade over the scorching asphalt, a never-ending parade of people exploring, talking, laughing, shouting. I’ve been out amongst them, adventuring, wandering around the Lower East Side, writing in cafes, spending the day in Brooklyn, walking until my feet feel bruised. Earlier this […]


Things I Love Thursday: Oh, Canada!

06.12.2014 · things i love thursday

Greetings from beautiful Vancouver! More specifically, Vancouver airport! We’ve been in town for a week, and today we’re heading to Calgary. The area we’re staying in seems pretty lively, and I’m excited to do some exploring! The highlight of my time in Vancouver? It’s hard to say. Probably a cross between dinner with Danielle LaPorte […]
