30 days of lists

i've caught on a few weeks late, but i'm lovin' playing along with the 30 days of lists blog. i'm an obsessive list maker anyway, so making a fun project out of it seems a no-brainer.

have a browse through the flickr group to see some fantastic examples of other people's lists.

by my bedside

my bedside book collection right now...

- The Winter Ghosts, Kate Mosse. a fantastic short story, with a spooky twist and a dollop of French history.
- The Brightest Star in the Sky, Marian Keyes. i haven't started this yet, but i love Keyes' style. hope this will be a great beach read
- A L'ecole des Sorciers, J.K Rowling. the first Harry Potter book translated into french. this is a really fun way to brush up my french vocab.
- Trespass, Rose Tremain. i can't put this book down at the moment. i can't wait to read some more of her books.
- Alices Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass, Lewis Caroll. had to buy this to go in my collection of beautiful penguin classics. i have more than a shelf-ful now!

unRemarkable girl colour yummy

this evening i had fun choosing a new blog colour scheme on colourlovers.

i started with the pantone colour of 2011, (honeysuckle - of course!), and went on from there. can i just say i love the idea of a "colour of the year"? yey for colour enthusiasm.
