One of the greatest things about being sans job/internship is that I have all the time in the world to focus on the things that would otherwise be reserved for the weekend. Yesterday I got a mani-pedi and a haircut (nothing too drastic!) and today I am perusing bridal magazines! Fear not, this Eternal Intern is not taking the plunge, but I have a dear friend on the other side of the world who is and as her maid of honor, I am assisting in any way I can! I can't even being to tell you how difficult it is to lend a helping hand when I am in Paris and she is in Victoria, British Columbia. Our phone dates are few and far between (9 hour time difference!), but at least once a week I tear out pages from bridal magazines and send them to her with little notes in the margins. Sure, we could correspond by email, but she is planning a wedding for goodness sakes and there is still something so romantic about receiving something by post!
Speaking of La Poste, I was recently introduced to Panty by Post by a very in-the-know Canadian friend. I really don't know how dear L. works a full-time job and is still au courant to all things chic, but she is always one step ahead! Anyway, Panty by Post is a panty of the month club! How genius is that? You subscribe online and each month a pretty pair of french panties arrives at your door! Très cool!
Since I live in the land of french panties and have an already overflowing top drawer, I decided to sign up the bride-to-be as a special little wedding-countdown! Imagine, receiving lingerie each month as a countdown to your wedding? Fabulous! Anyway, since I am such a lover of the post, this really did seem like the most fab gift I could give.... I just wish I could be there to see the look on her face when the pretty little package arrives in the mail!
Back to bridal mags I go! And no, I haven't applied to a single job today! It's my jour de repos! haha!
