Lazy Sunday


This past weekend I experienced the very definition of a lazy Sunday: mostly spent in bed filling up online shopping carts at Forever 21, American Apparel, and 80s Purple but purchasing nothing, venturing outside only for a brief while to spread out a towel and bask in the usually beautiful weather with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for company.

The book only becomes more perfect every time I read it. Certain parts still make me cry, and probably will forever.

On Saturday we visited my aunt in Long Island. Suddenly inspired to paint my nails at her house, I dug around in her huge box of polishes and found this, which ended up being one of my favorite nail colors I have ever put on. It's OPI Nail Lacquer in Cajun Shrimp, and I can imagine it's pretty universally flattering. Bright nail polish might be the only thing to perk up my ghostly skin in the winter... I still want to get my hands on the perfect bottle of mint green!

Along with freshly enameled nails, these boots were another magnificent acquisition from my aunt. She bought them a size too small and, instead of returning them, gave them to me! They are not the sort of thing that would catch my eye in a store, but after wearing them nonstop since Saturday, I am very enamored of them.

Like I said, the weather has been crazily nice. I felt almost guilty not snapping any pictures today because it was that gorgeous out. Instead, I stayed inside and read more Harry Potter. Can you really blame me?

Many months ago I blogged about some adorable rings from an Etsy shop called Alice Pleasance. Not long after that, I discovered her blog, The Cupcake Diaries, as sweet and adorable as her handmade jewelry! I won this hairpin in a giveaway on her blog recently, and it has inspired me to want more quaint little hair accessories.

"Sunday is the golden clasp that binds together the volume of the week."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Okay, every time I write or even think the phrase lazy Sunday it makes me laugh, so I think that I am required to post this link. Watch it. So. Funny.

All the photographs of the pages of Harry Potter make me so happy I just can't even describe it. I want to blow one up and just frame it over my bed!

the photos are beautiful.
there is nothing quite like re-reading the harry potter books. it feels as if you're reading them for the first time no matter what, and you always discover something you didn't notice the time before.

Anna G said...

I've never read that book but it sounds like a great read. I love your boots. I really want to find something like that.

Penny said...

Diane said...

That little hair clip is so romantic and sweet!

I've never managed to read the entire Harry Potter series. I know, I know, shame shame. I will get to it one day. I remember stopping at the fifth book because Harry was just bugging the shit out of me and I couldn't go on. But one day I will start from the beginning and finish it!

I remember watching Lazy Sunday's premiere on SNL. Still just as hilarious every time. haha. Who doesn't love spending a Sunday with Harry Potter?

FabBlab said...

HELLO, soul sister. I am so freakishly obsessed with Harry Potter, my friends mock me on a daily basis. Deathly Hallows was perfection. And boy, did I sob and wail. At a half of the twins' death, Dobby, Hermoine being tortured, Tonks, Lupin, and... okay, I'll stop. You get the picture, right?

Lazy Sundays are the best. Though mine would involve a bottle of sangria, as well! ;)
