My Wishlist | SIMA

I’m looking to grow my library of self-improvement books. Can anybody recommend books in the following categories?

  • Photography: Books on composition and lighting, Photoshop for beginners and the basics of digital SLRs
  • Business: Books on goal setting and self-motivation and staying organized
  • Crafting: Books with patterns for a beginner knitter and somebody who want to learn to crochet

Thanks for your help!

Do you ever wear a robe?

I’m in the market for a new bathrobe, something to wear while I do my hair and makeup after my shower/before I get dressed and at night over my pajamas. But I’m not sure what type to get — terrycloth, cotton or fleece. What do you recommend?

I found another photograph that would look fantastic in my office thanks to the art savvy Holly Becker of Decor8. This print, called Solitude, is by the very talented Yvette Inufio of Miami.

I love this laser-cut steel basket by Megan Auman, but I wish it didn’t have to cost $180. So pricey for a magazine/book holder!

My Amor Verdadero (True Love) may be returning home from his deployment in as little as two weeks! Perhaps when he gets back, he’ll buy me one of these lovely little 14k gold-fill discs from Anne Kiel as a belated Valentine’s day present.
