Harry Potter – Redesigned!

Bloomsbury, the publisher of the Harry Potter books in the UK, just announced an all new line of covers for the series. All seven titles will be published on September 1st (my birthday), but since the images just got released I had to share. I think they’re pretty awesome—I just wish they were in hardcover, not paperback, but regardless the design is pretty great! What are your thoughts?

HelloAM Decks The Hall With Joy

It’s a rainy Sunday morning here in DC, so I decided to peruse through Etsy to see if I can find some inspiration and beauty to brighten up the day. After searching around for a bit, I came across the HelloAM shop, and discovered some pretty awesome pieces of hand-lettering. Check out my favorites below, and make sure to browse the entire shop to find what speaks to you!

// I Love You To The Moon And Back // You Are The Oreo To My Milk... // Sleep Under The Stars // We Can Do No Great Things, Only Small Things With Great Love // I Am The Master Of My Fate... // Everyone Smiles In The Same Language // Live In The Moment And Make It Beautiful

Current Obsessions – July 2014

// // Current Obsessions - July 2014

I am sorry for skipping June…but here come all of my July favorites!

1. Just because it’s summer, doesn’t mean that there is nothing good on TV. Every year I get hooked on all of the awesome USA shows, like Suits, Graceland and Covert Affairs! If you’re in the mood for some well scripted drama, I highly recommend you check them out.

2. I am loving all of the awesome mugs by Ashley Brooke. My favorite is the Let’s Always Be Fancy Mug. It’s a bit on the expensive side ($23), but it’s pretty fancy ;-)

3. I LOVE LOVE this kinetic typography video for the opening of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air by Lucas Young. Totally worth checking out if you need a mini break from work!

4. It’s that time of year—yes, it’s wedding season! I dig these foil pressed invites from Minted.

5. I know this may come as a shock, seeing that I’ve been a blogger for over two years now, but I’ve just recently came across Bloglovin. There are so many amazing blogs out there, but who has the time to go to all of their websites every day? This is where the brilliance of Bloglovin comes in…all of your blogs in one place!

6. As some of you may know, I have a slight obsession with ampersands, so when I came across this awesome DIY Glitter Ampersand tutorial, I had to share! I will definitely be making mine very soon.

7. Work has been a bit crazy, so I haven’t had as much time to read, but I just finished the third and final book in the Selection series, The One. Out of the entire series, I feel like this was definitely the best book. If you like the YA genre, I definitely recommend!

8. Thank you iTunes Radio for helping discover yet another wonderful artist! I am loving Jacob Banks CD (on iTunes for $6.99), The Monologue. Favorite song is Dear Simone…love the vibe!

9. Although his CD came out in 2012, I am totally digging Lonely Are The Brave(on iTunes for $9.99) by Maverick Sabre. Currently on repeat, I Need.

What have been some of your favorite things this month? CD’s, books, blogs…anything you’re loving that you want to share? Comment away! I always love discovering what my wonderful readers are into! Happy Monday :-)

This is awesome!

It’s Time To Get Stuff Done!

If you follow me on Instagram (@Svetsxpres) you’ll see (that I just went blond…and ) that I just bought the most awesome notepad from Urban Outfitter (originally $16, on sale for $4.99 with an additional 50% off)…so of course I bought a few! It seems I’ve been on a real kick of buying to-do notepads. It seems like writing every little thing is the only way that I get things done! …and yes, I am one of those people that sometimes writes tasks after I’ve done them just to feel accomplished…but I am not the only one…right?

As a designer, my notepads of course have to be aesthetically pleasing. Something about writing on a pretty piece of paper makes me want to accomplish the task just a pinch more. This recent notepad obsession (I think I have enough to last me a few years), has led me to compile a list of some of my favorites that are still on my to-buy list! Check them out below, and of course, let me know what some of your favorites are, and where you get them!

// To-Do Notepads

1. Caroline Creates // 2. Puddle Duck Paper Co.
3. Sugar Paper // 4. Rifle Paper Co. // 5. Paper & Honey
6. Print Stitch & Paste // 7. Quirky Paper Co. // 8. Lucy Celebrates
9. Lily & Val  // 10.How Joyful // 11. Emily McDowell
