Why haven’t I been to one of these stores before?
After a weeknight dinner with a friend (Wednesday night), I stumbled into a cute store called Morning Glory. I’ve seen them all around town but figured the stuff they sell would have no meaning to me as it was all oversized toy pigs and funky looking alarm clocks in the display window. Something possessed me that night to walk in and take a look, maybe I was just passing time…not sure…
What happened was – I didn’t come out of the store until an hour later and didn’t realise it got so late….
I was like a kid in a candy store!
I felt like I was re-living my childhood for the minutes I was in Morning Glory, looking and picking out funny looking pens, choosing the pattern for my pencil case, ogling the pretty hair ties and mobile phone covers….
Truth is, I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, just was blown away by how much “STUFF” was inside this little boutique.
An hour later and a surprising amount of stuff I found I needed, here is what I walked away with: (I still feel like I was hypnotised in the store and don’t quite remember what happened! oh the bright lights of Hello Kitty!)
Morning Glory pencil case – helps me get organised again with all my writing utensils for studies
Highlighters and marker pens
This one is for my Mum, she is a piano teacher and works with kids. I thought this would be a great addition to her lessons!
Told ya it was like being a kid in a candy store- who doesn’t love crayons!!!
Live is Good and Sweet notebook! Amen!
This penguin pencil is a later addition to my spree during the week. I just bought it! (tehehee)
Justification – I need a pencil for circling things in my study book – don’t judge!
To find Morning Glory in Sydney join their FB page here – there are loads of awesome products they showcase there.
Something to LOL at – the photo below was taken from the Morning Glory Facebook page gallery of visitors to the store. Its nice to know even ONE DIRECTION shops at this boutique (no offence boys who look like One Direction and pose with a “pe-a-su” sign inside a totally awesome store.)
This is the shop where I become Alice in Wonderland:
