Sunday Stickies is a column where we reflect on the past week and pen those thoughts down on sticky pads. Expect notes to ourselves and others, advice, reminders for the week ahead, quotes, and anything random actually.
Phew! It is the end of another busy 7-day work week at the honey&gazelle Design Studio. We just wrapped up and packed up our pop-up booth at the Public Garden Consumer Trade Show with a bundle of mixed feelings. We are super tired with aching body parts - the signs of getting old is real, seriously - but our hearts are filled with gratitude and happiness. Thank you to all our faithful customers who came by to say hi and to all the new friends we have made!
Pop-up events are really draining in nature and to be honest, there have been times when we dreaded setting up our booth because of all the logistics and scheduling nightmares paired with uncertain weather conditions. However, we are always rejuvenated mentally and filled with gratefulness whenever we wrap up an event. The amount of love and encouragement shown to us at these pop-up events have been immense and heartening. So, thank you again from the very depths of our hearts for all your support!
Min: Zomg, September is coming to an end already! I have been procrastinating far too much and I can't believe I actually have less than 80 days to get my act together! Most brides that I know of have started their beauty, exercise and diet regime about a year before their wedding date. And I have barely started anything. I am constantly dreaming of eating the next packet of fries and chips and putting off any bit of exercise plans whenever I get the chance. This is extremely unbecoming of me! Though most friends shared that I will eventually get all stressed up about the wedding and start losing weight, I highly doubt that it's true. Stress = binge on fries! It's only normal, right? I seriously don't want to end up as a roly-poly bride so please encourage me with a carrot or celery stick when you see me!
Jia: Eeps, it is going to be October soon and that means I would have officially entered WEDDING SEASON. I have more than a handful of weddings to help in and attend between October and December, which means that I need to get my shoe shopping on. I have a designated pair of sky-high nude heels that I tend to wear for all weddings but after a good run of four or five years, they are starting to give way. I get overly attached to my belongings so I am feeling the wave of nostalgia and sadness as I prepare to say a final goodbye to that particular pair of heels. I know, it's so dramatic, but there are so many good memories associated with the heels! Sigh, oh well, it is time to hit the shops and find my next pair of heels to tide me through many more weddings!
How has your September been? Are you ready for the new month ahead?
With Love, Min+Jia.
