A few weeks ago the Liberty of London collection for Target debuted, and since I'm in Canada and we don't have Target - shame on you Target! And also shame on you for not even shipping to Canada - that is ridiculous! On that note did you know that even though we have the Gap in Canada that they don't ship to Canada either - wrap your brain around that little tidbit... sorry for that...went off on a little rant there for a sec! Anyway, as I was saying we don't have Target in Canada so my dear friend Jennifer, aka Jennifer "Big Potatoes" Davis, offered to pick me up a few things when the collection debuted. It was really quite funny! Jennifer went to Target on the morning it came out and, armed with her BlackBerry, sent me pictures as she went through the store via BlackBerry Messenger and I also looked at what was available online (which I found out was not even a fraction of what was actually available in store); we talked the whole time and it was almost as if we were shopping together. We had an absolute ball!
Unfortunately though, my package got stuck in Canadian customs in Quebec for about a week and a half and just arrived today - not cool, but I am sooooooo happy it finally arrived! Do you wanna see it? Yes? Okay!
By the way, do you like my extra-awesome skills at removing my address from view? Oh ya, that's how I roll...really, I just got a little lazy this time around. I tried to get a good picture of the cute kawaii packing tape Jennifer used, but it didn't work out so well. And yes, those are Alex's feet...and a camel looming in the background.
I bet you'd actually like to see what's in the box, wouldn't you?
Here's the first little batch of goodies! Jennifer's sweet daughter Liberty picked out the candy for me, and I think she did a great job! When I saw the wallet on the left I absolutely fell in love and I think it was the first thing that I asked Jennifer to grab for me. Jennifer picked out the mini-journal set and pad-folio for me (these weren't online), and also sent along a cute pen and a slew of fabric labels. Most of the labels are storybook based and I absolutely adore the Anne of Green Gables ones.
Here's the cute pyjama set I picked out. The fabric for the top actually matches my wallet, teehee. I love this set because of its vintage-feel and because the pieces are a little mismatchy - so good! I was thinking about bringing these to Market originally for sleepwear, but upon seeing them in real life they might be a little skimpy. Alex actually referred to this set as pyjam-erie (combination of pyjamas and lingerie), he's a pretty funny boy!
And last, but not least, is the cute top I picked out. It came out that Jennifer actually bought one of these for herself before I requested it - I think we should wear them at Market...together...at the same time...oh ya, that'd go over well! We'll at least need to get a photo of us wearing them together!
Sorry about the pic, I tried to take a picture of it hanging up but couldn't get a place with sufficient light, so the table it was! If you'd like to see it on the Target site for a better view, go here. Jennifer got me the extra small, but it's actually a bit too big, so I think I'm going to have to take it in. The armpit area is really droopy, so I'll start with that area and then see if I need to take it in any more after. I don't mind the loose fit of it at all, but I don't really care for droopy armpits, teehee!
Thanks Jennifer! You rock and I love you sooooo much! I owe you a giant three-scoop ice cream cone with a waffle cone and sprinkles at Market! Would you like syrup too? Funnily enough, there is already another package from Jennifer on its way to me and I am in the middle of putting together a package for her too.
I've just put a recipe tab over in the sidebar under "My Tutorials" so that any recipes I post are easily accessible; check it out! Only one more week until school is done (although I do have an extension on one of my papers past that) and I'm down to five things that are due. Phew, I am getting pretty tired but I'm just trying to "keep on keepin' on", wish me luck everyone!
