Thank goodness Friday finally arrived! I was beginning to think that free time was just a figment of my imagination…
Going into the weekend, it seems that I’m going to have a lot more on my plate, literally and figuratively. But hey, it’s not so bad. My best friend just got here (after a lengthy drive across Canada–a daunting task without the impending winter weather), it’s been snowing in the mountains, and it’s Halloween!
So, in anticipation of what’s to come, here’s a preview of what I’m loving this weekend.
It’s no secret that I love cupcakes, and these ones are just too cute. I mentioned a while ago that I was planning to make something similar for Monday at the office. These great little guys are just too good not to bake!
Great nails are a must in my life, and these colours are perfect for the winter season. I’m obsessed.
I’ve been so into DIY lately, and that’s part of the reason I’ve been so busy. Planning Christmas gifts that I can make myself is really adding to the sentimental factor of the gifting season (yes, I’m preparing already!), but I have to make sure I do it right (i.e. it doesn’t actually look like I’ve made it myself). Something this pretty is perfect for sisters and best friends alike, no?
These Hannah Teter goggles are my current on-mountain dream (other than three feet of fresh powder, but that’ll come too). I’m in definite need of some low-light lenses. I bought a sunny day lens in the hopes of many a bluebird day in Whistler, but it turns out that that’s not always the case… ah well, bring on the powder!
Has anybody else seen these? If you haven’t, go here and play! From what I’ve heard, this is the future of cameras–and the future of idiot-proof photography. Hallelujah. I’m not sure how regular photos (as in not “the best of the best” that were chosen for lytro’s website) will look when taken by an amateur though. I’m also skeptical of the nighttime capture capability, because they haven’t chosen to put any night photos online. We’ll see, but it’s definitely a step forward for technology.
And lastly, this week from my office window I caught a glimpse of the first snowfall in the coastal mountains here in BC. I could barely sit still for the rest of the day, dreaming instead of breaking in my new snowboard boots the best way I know how. I love October for the food, the colours, but most of all the anticipation of November and December. Bring it on! xo
