Forget things that stupid people have said to and about you. Focus on the people who truly love and care for you. Carry on with what you enjoy doing and do it with the extra knowledge that you and your heart are good.”

Love this fresh and functional packaging for Caramela Chocolates. Caramela is a Monterrey, Mexico based chocolate boutique.

I really enjoy seeing the combo of craft paper, neon pink and polka dots with that white Gotham text. When I first came across this on BP&O, it was an instant design crush, and of course I shouldn’t have been surprised to discover that it was done by my favourite design agency in the whole wide world – Anagrama. View some more of their work here.

Life Etc., Random, Typography

By Little Ghost

Testing… testing… 123… Trying to tap this out on an iPad. My 2007 MacBook Pro (aka my baby) gave up the ghost yesterday, so I’m testing out uploading posts from my bf’s iPad. I’m a little caught off guard by how upset I am about my laptop dying on me. I think she knew I was planning on upgrading to an iMac eventually and decided to keel off just to spite me!

Thought I’d post that cover of Ikea’s Homemade is Best cookbook. The layouts inside made the blog rounds last year, to such an extent that I never even noticed how great the cover was!

They also created an app that has both the recipes, and an exercise tracker to help you work off the sweet treats. I’ve been itching to get back to baking since my 30 day Paleo trial ended, and I think this might be the perfect start.

Weeeeeee! 100th blog post! Can’t believe I’ve actually been posting that long!

That (rather grainy) image above is a snap I took of our kitchen shelves. I bought those awesome letters at the new Typo shop at Canal Walk. Now I can remind myself to EAT! Yeah it’s not like I needed a reminder!

The shop is pretty cute looking, but what’s even better is that it’s filled to the brim with awesome stationery, crafty items, gifts and gadgets. I took at least half an hour to scan through everything to make sure I got all the best stuff – my boyfriend is both really awesome and really patient!

I left with my wallet feeling substantially lighter, but it was so worth it! I totally geeked out with some organizing goodies, like a business card file (!) and a handy notepad that I can keep right next to my laptop. I’m always jotting down tasks and reminders as I work, so this is super handy. I also got a cute pencil cup, two rolls of washi tape and some lovely twine. I’ve been meaning to order some washi tape from Etsy, so this saved me about half of what I would have spent on shipping. Awesome!

The business card file and washi tape in action. I’m really loving all these bits I’m getting together for my office space. It feels more and more like an official office space. Even though I can see my office from my bed – ha!

Also I advise everyone to have Mallow Mice for breakfast. It does wonders for your stress levels!

I can’t really have a weekend round up without showing my manicure. I went pink and aggressively sparkly with OPI Excuse Moi. I’ll admit it’s probably a little too glittery and twee for most, but I love it.

It was a Scrubs-a-thon at the Dalton-Walter residence. This is now our third (I think…) watch through. Yes, we are crazy like that. I <3 Turk & J.D. forever…

Finished off the weekend with date night at Taiwan City restaurant. They have an amazing (and affordable) hotpot special for two. I ended the weekend with a belly full of delicious dim sum, chicken hotpot and crispy pork. Hmmmm I want to go back there right now!
