Saturday shopping & a little blogging break

I did some self gifting yesterday. Buying these ('Dance' ballet flats in Black), these, these (mine are the authentic Keds!) and these gorgeous earrings from my new favourite jewellery store Filigree. Actually, the smoky quartz drop on these earrings is a custom order for my sister Jo, but the shop had no more available so Jo is letting me borrow these until she comes to visit in a couple of weeks. She's the best.

I also went to this new art store and loved it. It's so big and spacious and I love these David Trubridge light fittings they have.
I was impressed with the selection of graphic design, illustration and font books they have. I will definitely have to go back and self gift again sometime soon.
I especially liked the Curvy range of books which Yen magazine put out. I don't know why Yen is no longer available in NZ but at least I can still get to see all of these cool illustrations. And I think that's enough self gifting for now!

I'm off now to housesit for a friend who has jetted off to Spain, Portugal and Morocco. I know, I'm envious too but she deserves the break. I will also be looking after Mary-Jane, her pretty little kitty. I can't wait. Dom's house is a sun trap and I plan on taking a little blogging break and catching up on reading, going through my magazines, relaxing etc. I'm sure I will sneak back in the weekends as I don't think I can stay away from all of your goodness for one month!
Be good, crafty and inspiring. I know you will be! x
