I just got back from yoga and while I feel a bit more centered, my life is totally off balance. The weather (it is currently a balmy -7 degrees) has totally taken me down-you win okay? My week has been a bit nutty-as in my normally 30 minute commute has been turned into 1-2 hour ordeal. Fortunately, I have an excellent co-pilot/driver which always helps. However, all of this has thrown me off my game and when I finally get home, I just want to crawl in bed never to be seen again.
There are a few things that keep me going-in no particular order-Yoga, Wine, new episodes of Gossip Girl, old episodes of The Office (Dwight anyone?) and books. Lots and lots of books.
So for lack of a better post, here is what I am currently trying to read my way through (I know, I know, I just did a book related post but hang on, I promise more design is coming!).
If you have yet not read The Boyfriend List, I highly recommend that you do because it's fantastic. I just picked up The Boy Book by the same author which is supposedly the continuation of The Boyfriend List. And can I just say how I love the covers of these books-the frog and the penguin-does it get any better? Perhaps, but these are pretty great. Also by E. Lockhart is Fly on the Wall, and the plot sounds promising .
At the recommendation of Look At That Book, is The Ghost's Child by Sonya Hartnett which I am eager to start. And finally, there is Rumors, part of the Luxe series, which has been my reading candy as of late.
I promise I will get down to the real business of this blog soon, as there are projects in the works, inspiration to be found and many more Illustration Friday's in which I will participate.
So hang tight internet friends, things are about to get interesting!
