I’m having a hard time confessing this, but I have written my first fan mail.  I kind of feel as though the whole idea of writing a fan club letter to a celebrity is really cheesy & a bit juvenile, but I have recently come across a person I really feel a strong, honest, genuine connection with.  So, I’ve felt compelled to write that particular person a real heartfelt letter.  This the only sane, normal, proper/effective way I know how to reach out to that person without actually flying halfway across the country, tracking that person down at their filming location & stalker-fangirling him.

Right now, one part of me feels like a love-sick puppy-dog teenager who is writing to their favorite One Direction band member…like I’ve somehow jumped back to the 90s & I’m reading a copy of Teen Beat magazine with poster cut-outs of HansonBackstreet Boys taped all over my bedroom walls.  Another part of me feels nervous, hoping that this person will actually read what I wrote, & not let this letter be thrown into the trash heap or shuffled to the bottom of a mountainous pile of love letters, never to see the light of day.  I’ve got my fingers crossed in hopes that I will get a genuine reply & not some generic form letter typed out by the talent agency’s PR secretary.

Why do I suddenly feel like I’m doing something illicit, something naughty?  I guess I feel like a person of my age is too old to be sending ‘flowery’ fan mail to their favorite celebrity.  I feel like I’m 34 driving in a 16 mph zone…if you catch my drift.

Well, at least I didn’t doodle love hearts all over the paper & spritz my perfume on it.  That would just be too creepy. Blaaaaagh!  Here’s to hoping that when I reach out, that person will reach out to me in return (in a positive way, & not some creepy fangirl way).  Cheers on this Friday!

This past Memorial Day weekend, I went on a little shopping excursion with a girl-friend of mine.  I was helping her pick out children’s gifts for some friends (with kids) she is planning on visiting for her upcoming vacation, but then, I ended up doing a little shopping of my own.  I was kind of, aimlessly wandering around the shop when I came across a rack of greeting cards.  There were some really cute hand drawn cards by a local artist named Nidhi Chanani that I found, & I couldn’t resist picking up a few. I recognized this artist, as I recently bought & framed an art print by this very artist.  I love all of the San Francisco inspired artwork by this artist, & I love the light-hearted nature of all of the scenes being depicted in the artwork.

I love this art print of a couple embracing while gazing at the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s such a romantic scene, & it’s the greeting card version of the very same art print I hung in my bedroom. I feel like the characters in this print could possibly resemble myself & my favorite person (Mr. H.).

 

nidhi chanani picnic and bubbles

This is such a whimsical art print. I just love the relaxed, romantic feeling of this picnic moment in the park while blowing bubbles.

 

nidhi chanani Giants fans

This is one of my favorite art prints. I am a HUGE baseball fan, & the Giants are our local city’s baseball team. This also reminded me of my favorite person (Mr. H.) who is also a big-time Giants fan, & the characters in this print sort of look like us.

 

nidhi chanani gg bridge framed

This is the original Nidhi Chanani art print that I purchased & framed. It is now happily hung on the wall in my bedroom. I’d also like to THINK that the characters in this particular print also resembles myself & my favorite person (Mr. H.).

 

elephant and bunny stickers

Well, you know me. How could I resist these cute & adorable stickers? There were so many to choose from, but I restrained myself to only getting two.

I got this iPhone case 7 months ago while I was visiting Tokyo. As usual, the mega stationery/crafts shop LoFT always carries a large selection of electronics accessories & cases. I knew I would find one for my new cellphone at LoFT.

I ended up getting this rather simple case. It’s a soft pink color & has a sheep polka dot print all over. I say they could either be happy sheep, or fluffy cotton balls with smiley faces. I like this case, not only because it looks feminine (& I’ve been trying to become more feminine, less tomboy lately), but also because it is a very thin case.

I’ve used hard-shell cases in the past, ones that are meant for harsh conditions, & they tend to be bulky & uncomfortable to use. This new case is quite thin, yet it is still extremely durable. It also protects my phone in case I drop it (which I have done several times already). This case is made from a flexible plastic-like material, & the outer texture is rubberized for a good no-slip grip. It’s not a full wrap-around case, so it’s perfect for when you need to charge your phone or plug in headphones with a chunky plug. I used to use an Uncommon brand case, & every time I needed to charge my phone, I had to pop out the bottom of the case to get the plug to fit. With this case, there is easy access all around.

I feel a bit disappointed that I didn’t DIY myself another “gem-ed out” cellphone case like I did for my previous phone. Perhaps I will make another DIY case again, but first, I must think of a new design for my next case. Time to browse ETSY… Cheers!
