This week, I’m positively smitten with…
1. Pen pals: Although it’s been years since I had a pen pal I wrote handwritten letters to, I do have an email pen pal. Lyndsey and I write to each other almost every day and I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s nice to have a support system, and also someone I can just shoot an email to that simply says, “Why aren’t I Beyonce?”
2. The Literary Gift Company: I love writing, which automatically means I also love all things books. The Literary Gift Company gets me. Based in the UK, this company is essentially a one-stop shop for bibliophiles. They sell pens, notebooks, journals, mugs, stationery, bags, books, books about books, and books turned into other things, like jewelry. If I had it my way, my paycheck every single week would go straight to this company because I need it all.
3. Paper dresses: This adorable mother-daughter duo makes dresses out of paper, modeling them after celebrity outfits (appropriate, given the Oscars were Sunday!); runway designs; and fictional characters. While most of the dresses are hand-crafted by mom Angie, daughter Mayhem, has taken to creating dresses as well. Check out some of their creations below and be sure to follow them on Instagram for the latest updates. Who knew paper dresses could be so stunning?
