Tea Party // 13

Welcome to the party, friends! I hope you all had an amazing, relaxing weekend and are ready to take on this week! I spent some time with my family which was awesome, and a much needed break. Yesterday was definitely a Monday, but it was also super productive so I was pleased! This week is super exciting for me, since I'm attending some of the Vancouver Fashion Week shows - as many as I can fit into this darn student schedule of mine, that is! But I will be taking tons of photos, so get excited! You're going to feel like you were sitting right there with me, ha! But since it's Tuesday today, that means one things. Tea Party time! Here are this week's questions.

1/ As usual, what are you ordering for our get-together?
2/ This is super random, but I've been spending lots of time fantasizing about having hard wood flooring in my apartment! If you could change one big thing about your home, what would it be?
3/ On the other side of the coin, what is something about your current living situation that you absolutely adore and are grateful for?
4/ What is one hobby that you've really been wanting to take up? Have you any plans to do so in the near future?
5/ What is your latest & greatest internet find? Could be a site you just discovered, an awesome blogger, or a pretty new shop that you just can't get enough of! Leave a link so we can share the love!

Here are my answers.

1/ Caffeine is my friend this week, so I'm ordering a big cup of earl grey tea with soy milk.
2/ I think I gave mine away up there! My new apartment is awesome and I'm in love with it, but if I could change one thing it would definitely be the floors. They are not too pretty, so I would die for some gorgeous, slightly worn hard wood.
3/ All of the space! After living in dorm rooms for 3 years, having a full apartment is such a crazy luxury! I mean, I went from having a twin bed and one teensy closet, to a queen sized bed and two full closets!
4/ Cooking! As soon as my schedule calms down a bit, I'm going to be a cooking machine! You can expect some fun new recipes up here on the blog, that's for sure.
5/ This blog is so awesome and I'm super glad to have just discovered it. It's written by an adorable couple, who both happen to be fabulous graphic designers! They created this printable, which is sitting pretty on my desk at the moment. 

I can't wait to hear your answers! Have a lovely Tuesday everyone!

  1. I've missed the last few tea parties so I'm pleased to find I'm first to this weeks!

    1. I'm ordering a smoothie today - trying desperately to get my health kick back on
    2. We are currently apartment hunting so with that in mind, we'd love a 2 bed apartment with a balcony, view of the mountains and good sized kitchen! I've missed cooking. The places we have been staying in have had tiny kitchens.
    3. I suppose being in between things at the moment is good in that we aren't tied down and can hop from area to area. Although I CANNOT wait to be settled.
    4. Crochet. I have always wanted to make my very own blanket and I've been inspired by claireabellemakes.com to stop finding excuses and make one.
    5. I love http://www.alphabetbags.com/ they create cute purses, bags, washbags, totes, etc, all personalised with your initial. I love their new canvas pouches range. I think I might treat myself.

  2. 1/ Since it's finally gotten cold, hot chocolate with LOTS of marshmallows!
    2/ A bigger closet! Our apartment has like no storage space, it's horrible.
    3/ We're really close to everything, right near the highway so my husband can get to work really easily and a pretty decent shopping area.
    4/ I've always wanted to learn how to tap dance. I'd love to take classes but can't afford it right now.
    5/ http://www.modcloth.com/ I know they've been around for a while but I've never visited their site before. They have the cutest dresses!

  3. Oh man, I can't wait to see what you get for an apartment! And I think I may have to treat myself to one of those bags as well! The fonts are all so great!

  4. I know I'm a day late but I LOVE my Tuesday Tea Parties, so I'm here nonetheless!

    1/ Ordering a YUMMY hot salted caramel mocha with whipped cream.

    2/ I DREAM of having a loft bed. My husband and I live in a tiny apartment and a loft would open things up so so so much! I would love it.

    3/ I absolutely adore living three and a half blocks from the beach. I never want that to change!

    4/ Blog design! YES! My man is buying me a MacBook Pro this month and I'm SO PUMPED to begin.

    5/ Watched on asos.com thanks to your blog post today!!! I've been looking for a new watch!



  5. Oh my gosh, I'm so jealous of your beach vicinity! My sister lived close to the beach for the summer and I always just wanted to move in :)
