Taking Stock | 0116

Making : schedules and to-do lists for Valentine’s week. And some cute crafts to decorate the shop for the holiday.
Drinking : a lot of wine. We added a beer and wine package sales license to the business this year. So it’s research! And quality control! It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. {wink}
Watching : Project Runway Jr. on cable (I have legit cried watching those babies get eliminated). Bob’s Burgers and Mad Men on Netflix.
Reading : Dear Mr. You by Mary Louise Parker. I don’t have time to sit down and get into a novel right now, so I love that her memoir is organized into letters that are quick reads but so beautifully written.
Playing : a lot of intensely competitive Yahtzee with C.
Enjoying: shopping for unique retail lines to sell in the new shop. (Have or know a cool small business that does gift/home/stationery/spa wholesale? Leave me a comment, please!)
Listening : to the Chillwave Radio station on Pandora.
Wanting : a pair of Madewell High Riser Skinny Skinny Jeans, but hesitating to make the splurge. Any good reviews out there from petite ladies?
Loving : Olivine Atelier’s beautiful perfume oils in Gigi and More Than the Stars. The fragrances are complex and beautiful and last all day.
Waiting : for the end of football season. Sorry, not sorry.
Bookmarking : Terra’s new blog, Love Nothing More. She’s one of my OG style blogging friends from the “good old days,” and I’m so happy she’s back.
Smelling : the “Amber Dunes” Illume candle I swiped from our new retail stock for the house. I’m also in love with the “Chanterelle Moss“.
Wearing : my new clear Warby Parker “Chelsea” frames all the time, and loving them.
Searching : for a feminine leather backpack to schlep all my stuff to work. I’m stuck on the Everlane Petra, but this leopard number from ASOS is on sale for less than $100, and you know I love me some leopard.
Feeling : grateful to be settled in our beautiful new space at the shop, and a little anxious about the next couple of weeks because Valentine’s Day ain’t no joke for florists. (Hug the next one you see; maybe bring her some booze.)

I'm a small town lady from the sunshine state with an affinity for bookstores, beauty counters and unfussy style. I spend my days running my flower shop, and my nights blogging about what I love and what I wear. (Or watching Netflix and drinking wine.)
