It’s yo boy Bri. Obvi.
Today we are talking about the joys of snail mail. That’s right, snail mail. Signed, sealed, delivered kind of shit. The kind of mail that requires a little lick. The kind of mail know one sends anymore. It’s an art form really, and who doesn’t love getting a letter in the mail!? In fact if you don’t like getting snail mail, We’re straight up not friends anymore. It’s sad to say that letters in the mail just don’t get sent anymore. In fact, Canada post is phasing out door to door delivery in the next 5 years! When I heard this I was gobsmacked! Truly upset! But then I thought about how I didn’t even send mail…so like, why should I be so upset. There is something romantic however, about a handwritten letter, and I took it upon myself to keep the romance alive in 2014. “write more snail mail!” SO WHO’S WITH ME! Get up off your lazy ass and buy some adorable stationery(or create it). It’s out there Jerry, and you’ll love every minute of it. I got my shit at Anthropology in the sale section. LOL. I do believe Indigo has some cute stationery too! Do what you gotta do gurl, just get writing those damn letters!
It has certainly been a while since I posted on The Duke of Design hasn’t it!? I was terrible at keeping up, However, 2014 is HERE BABY! I have made it one of my many New Years resolutions to blog my life away! Here is the skinny on what has been going on and an explanation for my lack of blog power. I was working for a company with REDICK hours. As in 3:30 am wake up call…then, for arguments sake, an hour drive to a different city…what the capital F was I thinking. It was long ass hours and I found myself MAD everyday. You KNOW I can’t be dealing with that SHIT Euryday. So, I quit! I had the power to change my life BACK to the better and I did just that! I went home for Christmas and had a wonderful time breathing in fresh pine air, eating the most seafood chowder I ever have in my life, and spending lots of time with my beautiful family! Nova Scotia Christmas never fails to impress! Also, It snowed on christmas day. HOW PERFECT! My gorgeous sister Lady Melissa would like to point out that THAT is a Christmas miracle.
I figured the best way to start off this blogging adventure was to share my New years resolutions with you! You are more than welcome to share yours with me! I would love it. Do it now.
I would also like to point out that this is not so much a strict list as it is what I would love 2014 to include. Click that image if you want to be able to read those resolutions.
It has been such a long time since I last updates this blog of mine! There has beens so much change in the last few months, and it is WAY to overwhelming to share it with you…at least for now. I’m sure I’ll get to it eventually little by little. To some it all up? I moved from Toronto to Montreal! New apartment and lots of decorating to be done! In the next few days I will update you guys n’ gals with what my place is looking like so far. For now I will just show you what I bought today. Its super riveting and revolutionary.
Basically just handy wire baskets and cute red and white paper straws…LOL. Deal with it biznatches.
I bought three new friends today. Meet Bryanna, Ethel, and Sophia. They are my new beautiful Dahlias friends I got at my favourite little flower shop on Queen East called Quince Flowers!So far they have been great listeners, and really put a smile on my face every morning. Have the best day guys!
I would just like to say that my camera was DEADZO BANANZO as soon as I arrived at Blogpodium yesterday. You’ll just have to deal with these AMAZING smilebooth photos. HELL YES WE’RE COOL BEANS, CHECK US OUT. Can you believe I made actual friends? These are not like regular friends though, these are cool blogger friends. WOAH.
I am certain all of you know my love for Her Majesty The Queen. I really admire her work ethic and really taking charge of the position she was thrust into. My friend Kasia tweeted me this BEAUTIFUL picture of my home gurl lookin fine in a rainbow of colours! I seriously am going to get this printed and frame it to hang on my bedroom wall. Obviously I will show you guys once I get that done!
Settle down, and get back to your assigned seats! I have some news to announce. I have just drawn the winner from my FIRST EVER, BLOG GIVEAWAY!!! OMG. Are you so excited!? I am, and I totally feel like Kristen Wiig from that SNL skit where she “really loves surprise parties”.
