The wait is almost over...

By C.Elizabeth

There are two things I am very excited about at the moment: my holiday in my home country and my new Ted Baker dress.

I haven't been home for roughly a year now so I really can't wait to see all my family and to simply be in Canada. I am almost all ready to go despite the fact that we are leaving only Tuesday. My suitcase is mostly all packed and the same for my hand luggage. Bits and bobs and whatnots are still to be added but I am quite proud of myself for not being too "last minute"!




A while ago, I found the cutest name tags on ebay,very retro and colorful! I took pictures of the two we will be using but it actually came as a pack of four. I just don't know where in my suitcase I put the other two, which I am taking with me in case I lose one. After all, we all know how careful luggage handlers are!



A few days ago, I received a package I was waiting for impatiently. My new Ted Baker dress. I decided to wait until we get to Canada before wearing it... to make it even more special! But anyway, here it is:







The lovely Imogen gave me an award in July! She is such an adorable girl and her blog is one of my favorites... so I'm very flattered. Thank you!




The winner must list seven interesting things about themself:

1. I can hardly sit still... I either need to shake my legs or rock the chair in the living room. It kinda annoys Andy when he's trying to watch TV.

2. I worry a lot and very easily and often about silly things.

3.I used to moan about snow all the time... now I miss it. I used to enjoy rain... now I hate it.

4. I mostly only wear dresses and skirts due to the fact I really dislike wearing pants. I find them very uncomfortable.

5. I'm quite an impatient person, especially if I am excited about something.

6. I have always wanted to live somewhere down south but I somehow ended up in England. That simply shows how unpredictable life is!

7. I would have loved being a teenager in the 1950's and a young adult in the 1960's. I simply love those two decades...


I am giving it to:

I am leaving on Tuesday for just under three weeks, so this is probably my last post until I come back! Take care. -xXx-

Ariella said...

Congratulations on being so effective and getting most of your packing done already! But I suppose it's not as hard to start packing when you're very excited and impatient about something ;)

That Ted Baker dress looks great - I can't wait to see you wear it!

Nora said...

I hope you have a nice time at home! And I don't like wearing pants, too. They somehow make me feel like a bird locked in a cage...
I guess most people dream about living in the south, but I think northern countries like England or Scandinavia are much more exciting and special!

Eliza said...

The dress is so beautiful! :) I really love it, it's shape. And congratulations for your award dear <3

Cafe Fashionista said...

Those are the most adorable name tags I have ever laid eyes on. So vintage and playful. And that dress...what a divine piece!

One thing we don't see eye to eye on...I too love snow, but I adore the rain as well. There's something so romantic, so elegant about it. At least when it's not a horrible downpour! :)

Hanne said...

I love packing and I usually pack a couple of days before departure;))

Have fun at home! It's almost a year since I've last been home too, hope I'll be able to go soon;)

Jennifer Fabulous said...

You are such a neat packer! I'm jealous. Lol.
I love those nametags too.
I'm glad that you're home and going to see your family soon! That makes me happy. I hope you have a wonderful time with them!

Those name tags are so cute.

MizzJ said...

Goodness that is a neat packing job! Could you please come over and help me pack for my upcoming vacation? haha Welcome back soon to Canada! I think too much of either snow or rain tends to make it lose its appeal :p Unfortunately we get plenty of both in Canada!

Flashes of Style said...
