You know when even you are laughing at your crazy self, shit is not going well.
In other news, yesterday I distracted myself by going to buy the new issues of my fave design mags: Style at Home and House & Home, and both of them KILLED IT this month. I mean, check out this "why didn't I think of that" idea for sprucing up god-awful slab doors:
S@H and H&H are the only hard copy design mags I buy every single month, without fail. And while it's not cuz they're both Canadian, it's still kind of awesome that they are.
Because honestly, they really are the best. And I really don't say that about everything Canadian. Our TV shows, for example? Not so hot. (I'm sorry Degrassi, but your bandwagon is just not one I could ride....)
No, I say that because they're so much more accessible than the Elle Decors and House Beautifuls of the world. Sure, some of the content is so far out of my reach it's laughable, but they always throw in a cute space filled with thrift shop finds, a high-low feature and a few awesome d.i.y tips to balance it out. They're just so much more Lonny. Or Domino (may she rest in peace). They're definitely more bloggy.
Also - and I don't know if it's true - but the real content to ad ratio just feels a lot higher. After reading it I don't feel like I just wiped my ass with a 10$ bill . . .
All this to say: if you haven't checked these players out, you should. I think you'll be surprised at how bad-ass this maple syrup lovin' land can be!
Need one last bit of proof? This infamous stunner was brought to us by H&H:
A gift for which we will forever be grateful.
Happy weekend beautiful ladies and handsome gents! I will see you on the other side, well rested and filled to the brim with Homeland reruns.
