Also the most perfect mug that I've been using every day since I opened the package!
Thanks so much, Pamela!
Now, I know it's trite, but what's Valentine's day without chocolates and roses? Right? Right? After all, it's cliche for a reason :D
I love the color of these roses. So vibrant and cheerful, yet NOT red!
Not that there's anything wrong with red. Chinese New Year is the perfect excuse for something new AND red, hence the red bag. Mmm...the leather is so smooshy. And surprisingly, a perfect match for the box of delicious Marie Belle chocolates.
I also got a pleasant surprise when i dropped into Starbucks today. Apparently, they now have Valentine cups! Yay! After the red Christmas cups, I always find their regular cups so boring, so it's nice to see something new.
And just to continue the red theme for today, I'm currently lusting after these cheery Vancouver 2010 Olympic mittens. Why didn't I get a pair when I was in Vancouver last month?? Thank goodness for cousins who still live In Vancouver and are willing to buy some for me. Oh, and congratulations to Alexandre Bilodeau for getting Canada's first ever gold medal on home soil!!
