New Blog Design
Bears Read Too (client work)
It was such a pleasure to work with Carrie from Bears Read Too! She was so sweet and easy going. She wanted something colourful with teddy bears, books, and reading, but beyond that she gave me a lot of creative freedom. I think our final product really fits the image of her blog and is fun and whimsical, but without being too childish. 🙂
Wedding Website (personal project)
As I alluded to in a few Sitting at Starbucks posts, I made a wedding website for Coding God and I! It’s actually not a ‘full’ wedding website in the sense that we don’t have our story or a ton of photos/text on there. Its sole purpose is for people to RSVP. We struggled a lot with how to make the RSVP cards work with our invites, and finally we decided to take care of it electronically. So I made a form where people could RSVP online, but then we needed a website to go with it! It’s insanely simple, but kind of cute. 🙂
Oh my gosh, this week was so overwhelming! As I mentioned in my post last week, I had to go to London and clear out the apartment there. I had a whole night doing this:
The one upside to doing this was that I found a dress I’d been missing (you can see the blue and white dress in the bottom left corner!). I wanted to bring it to BEA but I couldn’t find it and I was SO upset because I thought I lost it.. well it was hiding on a shelf in London.
Then we got everything moved into our new apartment in Cambridge, and now our new apartment is filled with boxes and suitcases. But Coding God and I are both so busy with work that we haven’t even been able to THINK about unpacking them. I imagine we’ll be living around boxes for a few more weeks.
Hot chocolate connoisseur
I had ALL THE HOT CHOCOLATE this week. It was fabulous! Coding God and I went on a hot date and I got this lovely cup for dessert:
And I spent a few days this week camping out at Costa with my book. I adore their presentation! (And the hot chocolate itself is good too.)
Then I created the most glorious hot chocolate from two different mixes:
Yesterday I brought my Kindle… to the gym. I read while on the treadmill. LOL
I’ve been wanting to try this out for a while now, just to see if it could physically work, but I never did it because it’s kind of embarrassing! What if I brought my Kindle and it totally didn’t work AT ALL, then I was the idiot who just brought her Kindle to the gym for no reason?
So yesterday, I poked my head in the gym, saw it was empty, ran back to my apartment and grabbed my Kindle, then went back and got to work! Of course, people did trickle in eventually, but at least at that point I had privately established that reading while walking/running on a treadmill is totally doable! Sometimes I did find myself getting a little weirdly dizzy.. I think just from focusing so hard downwards while running.. but I’d just look up for a minute, get re-oriented, then get back to reading.
Would do again.
