Inspiration Mondays: Girlie Boost

Having skipped out on blogging at all last week, I feel a bit like I cut class in high school. (For the record, I NEVER cut class in high school, in case you're reading this, mom.) This blog is about 80% fun and 20% work, but sometimes that 20% is enough to tip me from "procrastination" to "whiny defiance." And reading stuff written with that kind of attitude on is just no fun for anyone.

I had a long work week last week, pulled a lot of long days, and add my normal workout/evening chores/dog walking and stretching routine, I was pretty much left with nothin'. I reached the weekend needing a little fresh air and a change of scenery.

I was lucky enough to have a trip to Victoria planned. It was an exciting prospect, but I was a bit worried it would be too much for me after such a busy week. It turns out the change of scenery was just what I needed.

I was traveling without the hubby and the Rascal, and that always means I get to have more girlie time to myself: more time to linger in shops, more time to muse over cups of tea, more time to gaze at window displays. In another life, I think I would have been a window-dresser... though I think I probably would have made no money in it.

Anyway, a girlie boost was what I needed for a bit of inspiration and a bit of reset. Here are a few sights that just freshened things up a bit for me. Enjoy!

What is the big copper domeish thing? And was that one store or several? If it was one I may just want to live there.

It was several stores... all lovely! You would have loved the tea shop. It had a fabulous bakery in it.

The coppery dome thing is an old espresso machine I saw at a cafe. They didn't use it to make my coffee, though. It's just there for decoration, I guess.
