Hey everyone, it’s Lu! On Monday’s we try to bring you something to start off your week from the world of beauty or fashion. This week, I thought we’d get a little personal. Okay, not too personal, lol… but I thought it would be inspirational and fun to create a layout all about our favorite thing(s). I did try to limit myself to just one, but if you’re like me, you’re likely to have many things that would round out a top 100 list! Seriously, I considered all kinds of differents things that I just love… and truly, some of my dearest loved items are my most well~worn (i.e. ratty looking) belongings. However, I decided against scrapping those… wasn’t quite so sure how inspirational they would be to anyone else! But I do have one particular item that I have loved from the moment I saw it. It was one of those spontaneous purchases… and that, these days, is a rare event for me. A few years ago, I was strolling along in a quaint little town, basically just window shopping. I walked into a vintage~style boutique and spotted this adorable little hat. The truth is, when I bought this hat, I had intended it for a gift… but I could just never part with it, as selfish as that may sound (I did find a replacement gift, if that redeems me in any way). I could just visualize myself in this hat on Easter Sundays, tea parties, brunches… and I actually did wear it at a baby shower. It was for my little Chick-to-be & that hat will always be a part of that sweet memory. So, I thought this would be a very special belonging to scrap as a “Favorite Thing”.
If there is that one particular dearly loved item that you feel needs to be documented, why don’t you show us? Think of it as a little “getting to know you” exercise!
