Quiet: The Power of Introverts

I’m so excited to get this book. I’ve been eying it for ages, but I watched Susan Cain’s TED talk and it completely convinced me. I even wept a little at the end of the video (a good sign for this sentamentalist). Oh yes. This is going into my Amazon shopping cart right away!

Great Gatsby

I have been waiting for this trailer for what feels like ages. I am so excited to see one of my favourite books on screen. I don’t even mind that Tobey Maguire is in it! Did you read Great Gatsby? Are you pumped for the movie?

March/April 2012 Lonny is Here!

The March/April 2012 issue of Lonny has arrived! Hooray! We’ve waited a while for a new issue to come out and let me tell you it was worth the wait. It’s a beast of a magazine this time round with over 200 pages to flip through! It’s also the green issue which is always inspiring. So kick back for a bit this hump day and enjoy!


Romance Yourself a Little

It’s about that time of year when everybody starts feeling a little blah. The weather is blah.  Your motivation is blah. And even your wardrobe feels blah – you’re over the chunky knit sweater phase but it’s too cold to wear skirts and ballet flats. 

What we need is a little somethin’ somethin’ to perk up our spirits. My suggestion? Romance. And I’m not talking about the kind that requires a beau.

I think we deserve our own kind of romance, don’t you? Let’s woo our fabulous selves by picking up posies for our abodes, lighting candles, dining out at that cute little bistro around the corner,  reading the classics, listening to jazz, taking long hot bubble baths, enjoying a massage for a delicious hour and half, watching a Cary Grant film, savouring a piece of dark chocolate and rocking hot pink lipstick. What do you say? I’ve already booked a massage for this weekend and prettied up my coffee table with pink tulips.
