Personal indulgence...

So I treated myself earlier this week with an order from Paper Source.  They had a couple of things I'd had my eye on and after some comparison shopping, I found that they were the best deal. 

The first item was a One Line a Day 5 year diary.  I had stumbled upon the blog, Her Five Year Diary a couple of months ago and thought it was such a great idea to have a short, daily diary.  I've always loved the idea of keeping one but was just never able to commit to long posts about my deep dark secrets.  Since starting to blog, I've found how therapeutic these little journaling 'sessions' can be.  I'll be keeping this little book on my bedside table to scribble my daily records.

The second thing came about because of the royal wedding frenzy.  I love the phrase 'Keep Calm and Carry On' and had been applying it to everything in life (Keep Calm and Have a Cup of Tea, Keep Calm and Dance On, etc) so when I was surfing through the site after watching the wedding, I found a nice mug to house a cup of tea during my crazy work days.

I love the little crown detail inside!

What about you? How often do you give in to random shopping whims?

    Oh I love that my lil ol' site inspired you. That's the exact diary I keep! So pretty.

    I actually got to go to Paper Source in Berkeley last week and drool over all the paper, books, etc. I wanted one of everything. I love Paper Source tooooo much!
