  • Breakfast on the balcony
  • Dinner with friends
  • Roadtrips
  • Yellow satchels
  • Early morning sunlight

See you tmrw! :) Feel free to add your own GIST items in the comments, I love to read them :)

Dear Restore,

Thanks for fixing my broken iPhone. I can’t really afford to spend £119 right now so you did me a massive favour.

Love Sarah

Dear Falling Foward,

Thanks for giving me a place to record my memories for the last three years. I haven’t always used you, but I’m glad you are here. Happy 3rd birthday, little blog.

Love Sarah

Life List Update: August 2012

Posted by in My Life In Lists, Projects

The fun thing I’ve found about writing a Life List is that it’s really opened my eyes to other opportunities for future happiness. My list grows all the time; as I tick some thing off more items get added. I might not get them all done (in fact it’s probable that I won’t) but when I look through my list all I see is joy and that makes me feel so happy I could smile for weeks on the back of it. Here are my new adds since my last update:

Purchases
Make a list of my favourite photographers and buy a print from each of them

Travel
Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge
See Niagara Falls
See the tulip fields in Holland

Life
Live in another country

Fun
Go to the Cannes Film Festival
Go to the Boring Conference
Have my picture taken by Amber Marlow  

Food
Learn 100 recipes

 

Télégramme Magazine – Update

Posted by in Projects, Télégramme

Issue three of Télégramme came out in March (which feels so long ago now) which means that Issue four is scheduled to come out soon. I switched to a six monthly publishing schedule to give myself room to breathe but still seem to have left everything to the last month of the six, as per usual, heh.

I don’t even remember if I posted about issue three when it came out, but I’m going to link to it here now because even if I did it doesn’t hurt to refresh, right?

The first three issues have had over 12,000 reads and over 285,000 page views, which is pretty awesome. I’m hoping to get issue four out before the wedding (19 days and counting for those who care ;) ) – it’s mostly done. I also shifted it to it’s own domain so if you want to keep up with all things Télégramme related you can see it here or follow the twitter account :)

Dear Goodreads,

Thanks for giving me a way to track all the books I read whilst also allowing me to geek out on statistics. You combine two of my favourite things and it never fails to make me happy.

Love Sarah
