things i love thursday

5 February 2009


heart5 Nail Polish. Not that I don’t love it already (you can say that I am quite obsessed with the stuff!). But lately, when I should have been doing more useful things, say, studying for exams, I had been browsing various blogs dedicated exclusively to nail lacquer. And in doing so, I have compiled a list of nail polish that I must get my hands on, a.s.a.p. 

heart5 My planner. Simply because I am an organizational freak, and do love so to have everything written and planned out. Though I hardly ever follow through. It’s just nice to know that I have some control of my future.  

heart5 Snow! The massive amount of snowfall on Tuesday made me ridiculously happy; looking outside through a window made it seem like we were observing one (rather) large snow globe. I don’t believe it’s snowed that much here for the past two years or so. As cliche as it is to say, it did indeed look like a winter wonderland, one right out of childhood storybooks. 

heart5 Dujour. Updated articles, finally! Do check it out; read about a new label, Rebel DNCE, Shoshanna, & other such articles about fashion, shopping, & celebrity style here. Rate it, comment, do whatever you like; feedback is important! (Please be nice to me, darlings ;)! ).

heart5 Scarves. I think I had worn a scarf at least two or three times a week for the past two weeks. It’s been a growing obsession, since my original collection welcomed a rather large amount of new scarves (all from Christmas!). From wool, to cashmere, silk to satin, plain to embellished, I do believe they are my winter wardrobe staple. They truly are the most practical and fashionable accessory that can make any ensemble, regardless of what you wear (perhaps that was an exaggeration), sophisticated. 

heart5 Watching movies on my iPod. I must be an insomniac, at least for the time being, since I have not yet been able to fall asleep until the ungodly hours of the early morning this past week (and yet I am able to manage waking up in the morning three hours later.) To pass that otherwise boring time of staring blankly at my ceiling fan, I watch various movies that I otherwise would not have time to watch. 

heart5 Valentine’s Day is almost here! No, I have not found myself a valentine, but I do just love that holiday. Passing out sweet little valentines and candy hearts to friends is quite enjoyable.

    i love this post.
    probably cause i can identify with a lot of it…hehe. i make lists like a maniac, stay up way too late, etc.
    and man i am kind of missing snow. oh, not that we don’t have it around here…we do, but it’s been sitting around for too long getting all dirty and nasty and hard. i want some FRESH stuff!! i mean, as long as it’s gonna be cold and wintry, we might as well have snow right?
    okay anyway, thanks for another great post.

    I love valintine’s day as well 🙂
    thanks for stopping by and I love your header… it’s so ture 🙂

  3. 5 February 2009 2:24 am

    Definitely with you on the planner, organisation is an addiction! Happy Thursday 🙂 xx

  4. 5 February 2009 2:30 am

    yesterday I organized my nail polishes. I had so many that I didn’t use. Im def liking that chanel cotton candy.

  5. 5 February 2009 3:02 am

    I wore a deep purple scarf today with my black and red dress. It made me feel good. And a little more feminine somehow! 🙂 Your advice really is quite remarkable, La C!

    And every time you mention nail polish, I immediately look to the right of your page and scroll down to look for the chanel nuit de russie one. SO SO GORGEOUS. *claws at screen to get at it*

    I can’t seem to find it! Or is it not out in stores yet? Or is it limited edition? I need to get my hands on it, and it on my nails!

    SEAH :p

  6. 5 February 2009 3:31 am

    oh yes! i’m into nailpolishes and scarves, as well. but as i type this, i’m looking forward to spring and summer. Hmmm, memories of Keukenhof, Holland brings a smile to my face. =)

  7. 5 February 2009 3:46 am

    Hi there-I also love Thursday, its one step closer to the weekend, LOL!

  8. 5 February 2009 4:01 am

    I love nailpolish too, I feel naked when I´m wearing any 😛
    And it´s snowing here too, but I´m sort of sick of it… We´ve had snow for a couple of months now and I can´t wait for spring to come!
    Where do you live?

    Luck may be shining my way, I think I´m gonna get my hands on the shoes I wanted 🙂

  9. 5 February 2009 4:05 am

    I’ve developed an obsession with silk scarves! 🙂

  10. 5 February 2009 4:52 am

    Is it Thursday already? I love finding inspiration on your blog in the middle of the week. xo

  11. 5 February 2009 10:40 am

    I agree, with or without a valentine, it is still a beautiful day to celebrate. And nail polish is my new guilty pleasure. I love it.

    Looking forward to your next post!
    I have tagged you in my latest one 🙂

    Have a beautiful day doll

  12. 5 February 2009 10:51 am

    I love Valentine’s Day too 🙂 lucky you to have snow! I live in a country with summer all year round, so I hardly wear scarves too 😀

  13. 5 February 2009 11:40 am

    Ah staying up late… been doing that the past days too!:D I just love it too much to stop. I love sleeping when coming home from school and then stay awake reading in bed from twelve to two or something<3

  14. 5 February 2009 11:45 am

    I can’t get over the snow either! I’m a bit of an organisation freak too, I don’t think I could live without my planner and colletion of to do lists!


  15. 5 February 2009 11:56 am

    im sorry but i hate when it snows in nyc! and after the georgous weather we had on sunday and monday it made me so sad when it snowed

  16. 5 February 2009 12:42 pm

  17. 5 February 2009 1:00 pm

    hello darling! i’ve just been catching up in the posts i missed while i was away. they are so fun! my favorite is the monday post, such perfect suggestions! and i too have been obsessed with nail polish lately. i’d love if you’d give me some suggestions. what colors do you love most??

  18. 5 February 2009 1:01 pm

    oh, i just noticed your sidebar with your nail polish pics. they are lovely!

  19. 5 February 2009 2:00 pm

    I need to buy a planner! I also need to be more organized! can you give me tips? 🙂

  20. 5 February 2009 2:51 pm

    I wear scarves almost every day, adore them ^^.
    And of course I love nailpolish as well! But I’m so bad at planning and I hate planning (or at least that’s what I told myself as I can’t stick to them at all).

  21. 5 February 2009 3:33 pm

    i love scarfs as well and i always feel like when i incorparate them into my outfit, everyone in the office says things questioning why *gasp* i am wearing and outdoor item in doors… the horror…love the blog

  22. 5 February 2009 3:37 pm

    Yay for being organised, valentines day and nail varnish!!

    The 14th is the perfect opportunity to plan a meal with girlfriends (or your valentine!), paint your nails a beautiful red, and have fun! 🙂

    I so very much adore your ‘Things I love Thursdays” 🙂 They are so lovely


  23. 5 February 2009 3:38 pm

    Sometimes I’ll watch movies on my laptop to fall asleep. I usually nod off before the ending. 🙂

  24. 5 February 2009 3:56 pm

    I love my planner too!

  25. 5 February 2009 3:57 pm

    great post, as always, and I also like the Monday blues one, so good.

  26. 5 February 2009 5:10 pm

    I love nail polish too!

    OMG It snowed? How nice!!! 🙂

  27. 5 February 2009 5:37 pm

    I like your take on Valentine’s Day (:

    Also I too have a nail varnish obsession – I love OPI.

  28. 5 February 2009 5:56 pm

    chanel satin blue, i love that colour =D u should try it.. if u want some darker colours.. and it has snowed a couple of weeks ago here too, just as u described it, winter wonderland..^^ for the first time again in 12 years our country could actually iceskate again on real ice, cus it was freezing like crazy! im glad that period is over. lovely post again =)!

  29. 5 February 2009 6:03 pm

    This reminds me to re-do my nail polish!

  30. 5 February 2009 7:15 pm

    i love nail polish and scarves too! before bf days, me and single gal pals will have a valentine’s day party at someone’s place.

  31. 5 February 2009 7:23 pm

    I’m weird, as much as I hate the cold, I actually like snow. I live in the deep south now, but I grew
    up in Colorado, where even though it got really cold there was always snow! Hmmm, maybe I should buy faux snow….

  32. 5 February 2009 7:35 pm

    I’d love to say I use my New Yorker planner all the time although I’ve not used it much yet, although I plan on using it a lot in this following week! 😀

  33. 5 February 2009 8:06 pm

    Firstly, thanks for stopping by my blog and giving me such a sweet comment, it really means a lot. (^_^)

    Secondly, loving this post and this blog! I love my planner too! although I too mostly never follow through lol but its nice to feel organised. I’m also loving scarves and snow. x

  34. 5 February 2009 8:32 pm

    a planner is definitely a must! we’ve having a rare snow event here in uk, have not seen so much snow for years, it’s so pretty!

  35. 5 February 2009 8:54 pm

    Cool! I would love to watch movies on my iPod in bed, too. But I might never get to sleep!

  36. 5 February 2009 9:19 pm

    The snow was amazing and I love my filofax too!

  37. 5 February 2009 10:10 pm

    ahh, snow. I’m not going to lie, I have a love/hate relationship with it at this point. But all of the other items are lovely (your blog always reminds me that I am in desperate need of a manicure!!!)

    And I’ll be your valentine girl!! :))

  38. 6 February 2009 12:04 am

    Wow ! It’s a nice post. I love lists 🙂
    You must live on the East Coast as we had snow on Tuesday as well – love it !

  39. 6 February 2009 3:11 am

    La C, I am so glad you do these posts every Thursday! I love learning more about all the things you love 🙂
    I have become a bit of an insomniac I think (or too much birthday-ing has messed up my sleep cycle), and I’ve been watching countless TV shows and movies on my iPod as well! It’s pretty relaxing 🙂

    xo, darling ♥

  40. 6 February 2009 6:52 am

    You think so possitive:)

  41. 6 February 2009 7:54 am

    Scarves are completely irreplaceable in my wardrobe! I could not live without them.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog :] I’m flattered.

    x L

  42. 6 February 2009 8:33 am

    Ooh, nice list this week. Also ‘love’ the scarving and the snow.

  43. 6 February 2009 8:51 am

    good luck!!

  44. 6 February 2009 12:26 pm

    Painting my nails always makes me feel so happy.
    I’m not feeling you on the snow though, I’m sick of the damn stuff now!

  45. 6 February 2009 1:38 pm

    Oh I am so glad TILT is going to be a weekly thing – fab post. I adore scarves and watching movies on my iPhone in bed too 🙂


  46. 6 February 2009 1:58 pm

    i just love chanel nailpolish bottles. so chic, so cute, so awesome, so chanel! just having a bottle of their nailpolish could have the potential to make me cooler. hahahaha, and i love the color in the front in that picture. so pretty. i want all the nailpolishes chanel ever made! as long as they are in those pretty rectangular prism bottles.

  47. 6 February 2009 2:22 pm

    I love a list – and specially love a scarf. Thanks for stopping by French Essence, glad I found you. xv

  48. 6 February 2009 4:21 pm

    I love scarves too!! and I like when you use french words^^


  49. 6 February 2009 4:40 pm

    OOOh. I am a nail polish fiend too. I have probably wasted tons of studying time to painting my nails. LOL.

  50. 6 February 2009 6:04 pm

    I like these things i love thursdays. Perhaps I will start doing something akin… so clever!

    As lovely as snow is, I am so tired of it by now. It is not pretty here, just wet and brown and annoying and cold! Hopefully global warming will pay off and it will be spring soon…

  51. 6 February 2009 7:02 pm

    I think I love all those things too, well except for the snow cause here, in Spain, everytime it snows the country collapses so… And I know its just for selling more but I love Valentines Day too, although I dont have one 😦

  52. 6 February 2009 11:29 pm

    I so adore your blog! and this post is awesome, pass… I nominate you to an award

  53. 7 February 2009 3:12 am

    Oh how I wish I could also be wearing scarves right now. Not possible however in 32 degree Celsius heat (90F).
    Love it all xx

  54. 7 February 2009 10:10 am

    I have been wanting a moleskin. But I don’t think I will write too much stuffs on it 😦

  55. 7 February 2009 10:12 am

    P.S. I gave you an award today on my blog, darling!

  56. 7 February 2009 11:33 am

    Nail polish, snow, my planner… I can definitely relate!

    But suddenly, (Julie Andrews) ‘My Favorite Things’ is floating through my head! lol-xxx

  57. 7 February 2009 11:54 am

    I loooove your tilt! >:D
    Yay to nail polish, scarves, ipod movies, and planners! I love my new planner because it’s so cute and I can finally use my cute stickers to add to my organizing. haha. I might have to post my planner up someday now.

    Can’t wait until Vday too!
    Enjoy your weekend!

    i love nail polishes- i really really want the green barry m shade!
    and congrats on writing for dujour- thats so great! how did this come about?

  59. 7 February 2009 6:05 pm

    I’m with you on nailpolish!!

    incredibly addicting.

  60. 8 February 2009 10:23 am

    Are you kidding me? Nail polish is MUCH more important than exams, and don’t forget that for a second 😉 You’ll have to share some of the ‘must have’ polished on your list, as I’m afraid I’m hopelessly addicted to my Essie pale, neutral pink, and could use someone to get me to push my comfort zone a little!

    And yes yes yes to movies on the iPod! Sometimes it’s the only thing that gets me through my cardio time at the gym, especially when i’m in between issues of ‘us magazine’!

    When I tried to click on the Dujour link, it said suspended 😦

    • 10 July 2009 5:01 pm

      Con Brio: I had no idea; I just tried it and it does indeed say that! I wonder why….
