I was simply looking on Poketo for a planner (geek) and then I was like...hmm, I wonder what else they sell and then I saw all of these things which I want immediately. Im glad that pinning things feels almost like possessing them!

Backpacks from Katoko


For the past year or something crazy, I was looking for a backpack and I could never really find the perfect one - until I finally just ordered a regular black Jansport one (which I actually love and use way more than I thought). Really wish though that I saw these from Katoko! Maybe I would even go for something not black!

On texting


This quote from an article in The New York Times (The Five Stages of Ghosting Grief) by Rachel Fields made me laugh. (also, the article is about dating)
 
Texting these days is a funny thing, don't you think? I try to keep it in perspective and try not to expect an immediate response...because I know that I don't always respond as soon as possible just due to commuting, walking, child, working, etc. But actually, I kind of wish I was a more reliable responder as kind of a golden rule type thing..

One of my favorite blogger personalities, Garance Dore, wrote an aritcle on "Textonalities" - which also made me laugh big time! It hits the nail on the head about all of the different texter personalities (labrador vs. 1,000 unread messages) and also guys at the beginning of relationships vs. after some time has passed...check it out too ;)

What kind of texter are you?!

Gift Idea - Personalized childrens book (15% off)

Here is a gift idea for any little ones that you might know! Its a personalized book using their name and they get to meet these cute characters who build the names for them (the illustrations are really beautiful) - you can even choose what the little kid looks like which Im a total sucker for.  I just ordered one for Wesley! It looks so sweet and whimsical and I know he will love the elephant and the lion. Also its free shipping (which in Switz is a huge bonus for me). And anyway, if you order one, use this link please then you get 15% off and we get a free book I guess!

Leopard Print

A sweet little leopard print ring for your Saturday morning. Because Im not wearing leopard clothing but I still kind of like the whole leopard thing (its borderline wearing a costume which is always fun?) - but anyway, this ring is a slight nod to it so Im down with it. Its pretty. like your mom.
