Platform 9 3/4 This Way...

Tuesday, 14 October 2014

While I was watching TV last night I quite happily stumbled upon the movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.  It had been such a horrible week that I felt this immense sense of joy when I saw that it was on.  I ended up watching the rest of the movie till it finished at 2 am, cried once again during Dumbldore's death and then had a good long bath. It was the perfect Saturday night. There's something about the Harry Potter series that always makes me feel so happy. 

It clearly affected me because this morning I seemed to have pieced together an outfit that could be seen on a student studying at Hogwarts.

White Collared Shirt - American Apparel
Black Sweater - American Apparel 
Skirt - Topshop
Shoes - Topshop
Socks - Topshop
Rings - Miscellaneous
Time Turner Necklace - Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Shop (London)

Happy Tuesday Everyone! 

ModCloth Wish List 1 | Fashion

Sunday, 12 October 2014

ModCloth has been one of my favourite stores for a while now. For those of you who don't know, ModCloth is an online retro clothing store. I can't seem to find any other store that sells such a huge amount of retro and quirky pieces. It's one of the most unique clothing stores I've ever shopped at. Its so unique because there are many retro stores that sell the costume-type retro clothing, which are extremely fun but not particularly wearable for everyday, but ModCloth is different, their cloths are so beautiful and classic but can be dressed up or dressed down. My very favourite of items tend to be their dresses or the fantastic shoes they sell (their shoes are flawless!!!). I thought it would be fun to share some of my favourite items currently being sold at ModCloth, so here they are! 

Tell me in the comments if you would like me to continue with these Wish List posts!

Doll's House Sticker Book | Happy Thoughts

Saturday, 11 October 2014

To me, there's nothing like a heavenly scented soap or listening to a new/favourite record.  Those types of small items are the things that will boost my mood if I've had a bit of a rough week ( like the one I've had this week). My mom knew I needed a pick me up so that lovely woman came home with this small gift for me; a doll house sticker book. I used to play with these types of toys all the time when I was a child. There were always stickers in my home. It's funny how this simple little toy made me feel so much better. Now, being someone who has felt sadness in her life ( like everyone else) , I understand that there are times in life when you'll need much more than a toy to make you feel happy or understood but at other times when you just need a break and a bit of positivity in your life, these are the types of things that I would recommend as a quick pick-me-up.

Now from what I can tell, there are two versions of this book; the original Doll House and the Victorian Doll House version. Both are just gorgeously illustrated and are so much fun to design. The books contain about 23 pages of rooms which you (or your child of course) can fill up with the furniture stickers they supply within the book. Its so much fun and you can make 'your house' so cozy and wonderful.  I can imagine people of all ages enjoying this book because it is definitely fun to fill up with stickers but it also takes you to a different place, a happier place. Its such a simple concept, but this small little toy seems to have brightened up my day.

What do you think, should I continue posting about little items of positivity and make Happy Thoughts into a series on my blog? Tell me in the comments!

I hope your day is going well!

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadian readers!!
