Today I’m off to check out the Interior Design Show, but not before sitting in at Blogpodium – a super genius mini conference developed by Jen, Lindsay and Shannon. These ladies are tremendously talented as individuals, so I can’t even imagine the kind of triple threat they pose when working together on a project this amazing. I’m sure Blogpodium is going to rock the collective socks off the community of bloggers they’ve attracted for the event and I’m so grateful to be able to attend.
Saturday evening is also the third Canadian Design Bloggers Meetup – the creation of design blogging duo Vie and Daniella. I’m excited to catch up with a few of the gals behind my daily reads, and reconnect with a few I’ve met at previous meetups.
Expect recaps of both events, plus highlights of IDS itself, next week.
While I’m off
trying not to be a wallflower soaking up the design and blogging inspiration, here are a few things to keep busy with this weekend.
Weekend Wear | A whole lotta arm candy, like style maven Iris Apfel. (Also, meet Into The Gloss: your new favourite beauty read.)
Weekend Listen | What kind of 12-year-old listens to Bright Eyes? A Swedish one. Discovering the voices of Swedish sisters and musicians First Aid Kit early in the week (via NPR’s First Listen series, which my musical diet could subsist on), meant I had learned most of the lyrics by, oh, Wednesday afternoon. Um, repeat much?
Weekend Eat | Cupcakes for two. Or two cupcakes for one. A perfect small batch recipe from Brett Bara.
Once you get through with those, here’s what I was up to over at At Home with Kim Vallée this week:
- Setting a creative table
- Discovering candy-free Valentine’s
- Figuring out how not to forget to buy birthday cards
- Adding colour to the kitchen
