A few of my favorite things

Here are a few things that I love right now.
NOM! Eating lots of Smarties. I don't really like chocolate, but Smarties are just so deliciously awesome. Super thank you to Laura for sending them from England since you can't get them in the US.
The Oatmeal blackout in protest of SOPA
I bought a case for my Kindle from Pad & Quill that disguises my e-reader and makes it look like a book. The other night on the train someone said, "I thought that was a real book!" I said, "It is a real book, its just modern."
My Girls Rock Coloring Book arrived in the mail! Can't wait to fill it in.

Hope you're all having a fantastic weekend xo!

  1. I didn't know they have Smarties in the states, well at least not down here :( I use to eat them in my native country Canada and I'm always craving them, so I usually stock up on them when I go home...

  2. I love the e-reader case! I have a Nook and have a fabulous case for it but I've been looking for an actual "book" for the cover. I'll have to check out the site. And Smarties are....amazing.

  4. Ahhh, Smarties! I used to eat those all the time when I lived in Canada. Brings back memories. :)

    Loving that Kindle case. My mom just got one and I know she prefers tangible books, so I'll have to pass that along to her!

  5. That e-reader case is awesome! Should I ever get one I will definitely need to get a cool case like that. 
    Also, Smarties! Those things are delicious. Sometimes our Canadian friend brings some back for us. The chocolate in them is so tasty.

  10. I love Smarties! What do you mean you don't have them in the Us? [contemplating a world without them]... it's too painful to even imagine. Your Kindle case is so clever, I love it!

    Love from Jo'burg

  11. I thought I was weird 'cause I'm the only adult I know who colors -- but you make me feel normal!  Well... relatively normal. :)

  14. Wait, people actually like Smarties? I grew up with them in Canada, and everybody I know thinks of them like the poor man's M&M's haha... Whenever Halloween rolls around, the little individual-sized boxes are ALWAYS the last at the bottom of the candy dish... Poor Smarties, at least someone likes 'em :p Also, as a librarian... e-readers are so not books. Otherwise, you wouldn't need a cover to make it LOOK like a book, and there wouldn't be e-book companies that sell scratch-and-sniffs that smell like old book (true story).

  15. You can just mail the Smarties to me. I will send you the postage. The chocolate is SO much better than M&M's.
    Also, I am an avid book collector, but I have a 3 hour commute (round trip) and carrying books to read on the ride broke my purse. Not even kidding, like 3 months after I invested in a decent purse it freaking broke because I was lugging books. Now I can carry an entire series in my bag without worrying. The scartch & sniff thing is super weird though.
