from azkaban with love


pardon me for the nerd post, but its been a big, harry potter-filled week. my sister & i began planning our trip to mecca, ads for the half-blood prince dvd* have been all over tv and then, best of all, paige told me the greatest news ever!! hopefully this will tide me over until november, when the next movie is released. otherwise i could just re-read the whole series - it's going to be a long, cold winter.

*yep, that's another christmas present hint.

i <3 nyc

growing up i was always pretty into maps. on road trips, i'd get so excited when my mom got tired and let me take over navigating duties. but after a visit to the tate modern's exhibit on global cities and a summer touring around europe i got really into maps - specifically, transit maps. i managed to accumulate quite the collection of dog-eared subway maps over the years, which have now been lost into the abyss*.

so, as i kind of have a thing for maps and new york is one of my favourite cities in the world (second only to paris), it goes without saying that i need** this poster.

i mean... hearts + maps + nyc? adorable!!

also, how can you not love a company whose slogan is: "we make a happy life. have a talk and feeeeel love."

*also know as my parents' basement
** ahem, friends/boyfriend/parents/sister... christmas present?
