loving >> week 128

Hello!

The Love ListI’m loving…

Drawing Type: An Introduction to Illustrating Letterforms1 ♥ Drawing Type: An Introduction to Illustrating Letterforms I received Drawing Type yesterday as a birthday present, and even after reading just the first chapter, I can tell you it’s worth getting for yourself {in other words, it’s a must if you too are a budding graphic designer}. Whether you’re in need of gorgeous typography inspiration or if, like me, you want to master the art of “illustrating letterforms,” Drawing Type explores it all. My favorite part is reading the thought process behind the different pieces included, all done by various graphic designers, although I also can’t wait to try my hand at the exercises in the back of the book. Easily recommended!

Providence Coal-Fired Pizza2 ♥ Providence Coal-Fired Pizza I like to feature local restaurants, bakeries, and cafés whenever I can, so I couldn’t let this week’s Love List go by without mentioning Providence Coal-Fired Pizza! It was the perfect spot for a birthday lunch, and I know I {and my sister} would love to go back. We enjoyed the Margherita Pizza, in case you want to check it out as well.

Mean Girls3 ♥ Mean Girls My good friend was appalled that I hadn’t seen Mean Girls, so we made a goal to watch it together sometime this year. I finally saw it this week, and I now understand many of the quotes behind it! :) However, I’ve been warned to stay away from Mean Girls 2, so perhaps I will just watch the first one again instead.

Boden Fall 2014 Line4 ♥ Boden’s Autumn 2014 Line Boden’s release days are some of my most favorite times of the year! :) I had been eagerly awaiting this past Monday, as that was the day Boden would roll out their fall items; thankfully, the line didn’t disappoint. There’s so much that I LOVE, but my four favorite pieces are shown above! In the top left is the Matilda Dress, which has both a cute silhouette and a stylish pattern. On the top right is the Embellished Scoop Neck Tee, which I am convinced would look fantastic with a cream lace skirt {Right?!}. Continuing clockwise is the Toggle Coat, which I adored the second I saw it, but, sadly, is a bit too expensive. Finally, I picked out the Clara Sweater. I like the color the best of all – I’m sure the bright flecks are pretty in person!

Lilly Pulitzer Trippin and Sippin Planner5 ♥ My Lilly Pulitzer Planner! Last, but not least, I received a Lilly Pulitzer agenda yesterday {first featured on my b-day wishlist here}, and I absolutely adore it! I’ve already started filling in blog posts to schedule, my school calendar, and other events with my favorite colorful pens. Do you own anything from Lilly Pulitzer?

Have a wonderful start to your weekend!

  1. I would definitely agree with whoever said don’t watch Mean Girls 2. It’s not anywhere near as good or even the same as the first one. I’m so glad you’re now part of the Mean Girls club though! That’s my favorite movie haha

    OMG I JUST GOT A LILLY AGENDA TOO! I got the one in the print ‘Hot Spot.’ Lilly agendas are like my favorite thing in the world and I’m always excited when the new ones come out every summer. I own a few Lilly things, but no clothes yet, sadly. There are a few things I plan on buying once I start my new job. Their prints are so cute!

    • My Lilly planner is my first product from the brand! While I love the clothes and prints, I have yet to purchase anything due to the higher prices. Someday! :)
