My online shopping obsession.

It's bad. It's really bad.

I just bought 2 prints off Etsy from Deerface based in Wellington New Zealand.

Devon the illustrator is so damn talented and i CANNOT wait for my prints to arrive. I can't wait to frame them and hang them up next to each other, i think they complement each other very well! Deerface is on blogspot too so go check her out! Her studio looks amazing and as if i could get lost in it for hours!

What she says about herself:

'I live and work in a lovely, sunny little house, drawing and painting and making delicious sandwiches."

She sounds so lovely! Right?

Thank you Devon for making such beautiful things,

So so beautiful.

Ooooooh how lady like!

Why yes MR Lama.

Dalai Lama’s 18 rules for living

At the start of the new millennium the Dalai Lama apparently issued eighteen rules for living.

1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
3. Follow the three Rs:
1. Respect for self
2. Respect for others
3. Responsibility for all your actions.
4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
8. Spend some time alone every day.
9. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
11. Live a good, honourable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.
12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.
14. Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.
15. Be gentle with the earth.
16. Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.
17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
18. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
