I'll be adding this to the site soon. But don't worry - if patience has never been one of your finer virtues, just contact me and we can do the transaction through PayPal.

Although this lamp looks like it's just cut out paper, it's actually a double layer of a very durable synthetic material called tyvek. I really love these lamps and I've seen a couple of different styles popping up. A similar lamp was featured on design*sponge a couple days ago from another Scandinavian designer.
A quick note about this retailer - Romp is actually a store focused on fashionably functional kid stuff with a modern vibe. So all you incredibly cool parents out there that want your child to be surrounded with toys and accessories that integrate the elements of style and function, this store is a neat place for you to shop.
I'm not a parent myself, but I think the bunny mobile, and egglings are totally adorable.

Like its warm-toned sister necklace, this piece will make a nice compliment to some of the billowy, voluminous, and romantic dresses out there this spring.
This piece will be going up soon, probably in the next couple weeks or so. Can't wait that long? No worries. Just contact me and we can make arrangements to process your transaction through PayPal.

Since I'm a lip balm/gloss freak I especially like the Mentha Lip Tint in pink, and the Mentha Lip Balm (no shine formula) that you can get here. This online apothecary also has a lot of other luxe brands to choose from like Fekkai and Phyto.

You won't have to wait too long to pick one up for yourself. I'll be adding it to the site today.
Stay tuned for more sneak peeks this week!

I figured how to make these cool twiggy branches about a year ago - they're one of my most popular items and have been doing really well this spring. Particularly in demand are the pieces made with these cool Czech glass beads. I figured I'd write about these today because they won't last much longer! I haven't been able to find this style bead again. The faceted glass beads are matte, with an Aurora Borealis finish to them.
This necklace is one of my favorites. Instead of using standard chain or ready-made cord, I crocheted ecru (off white) silk into a cord for the pendant to hang from and finished with a gold-filled toggle clasp.
It's probably no surprise that these earrings are also a favorite as well! Made from sterling silver wire, I used two links in graduated size to give them extra length. I have a pair for myself, and always get tons of compliments whenever I wear them.

My second option comes from the Lisa Kline online boutique, and a line called Hat Attack (love the name!!). This nautically inspired striped cap comes in both red and navy (shown), and is perfect cap for everyday wear. The price here is a little bit easier to justify at $40.00.
If stripes aren't your thing, they also have a solid version that comes in red and white for $35.00.
I came across the bright, colorful stones and knew almost instantly what I would do with them! Because of their larger size, they would be perfect for a certain larger link chain I had been saving which had a mix of twist and plain links of varying size and shape.
I personally love the results - I'm planning on wearing them with a cute spring frock to my charity event. I'll snag a picture of them on and post it so you all can see how they look!
Coveting a pair for yourself? No worries, I'll get them up on the site in about a week or so.
Stay tuned for more sneak peeks this week!

I also dig their site a lot. They have a little lumberjack theme going on which I find amusing. Who can resist a lumberjack?
Both pairs are fab - the silver circles are flat, so they the reflect light and really brighten up your look. They're also super light.I've just added this pair of big and bright shell go-go hoops to the site yesterday. I've always loved hoops like this, and I've added my own extra little touch to these in the form of the gold-filled stardust beads the hoops are suspended from.
These are an especially perfect accessory for the explosion of bright mini dresses popping up left and right. I usually pair them with some huge sunglasses and a bright scarf for the full effect.

Of course, I have to look good while doing this, so I've been on the prowl to find some cool gear to go along with my new exercise regimen. I've had the opportunity to try out the Milly Shell top from Prana, and am in love with the fit and the unique neckline.
Also from the same line is the Lola Sport top. This style is available in solids or really cute patterns. There's also a colorful sports bra version.
Another noteable line is Lululemon Athletica. They have a great selection of tops and accessories, but I particularly like the Reverse Groove pant.
A quick little note about Lululemon - they have a really cool web site. I normally don't like a lot of moving stuff and animation, but theirs is actually quite charming and surprisingly whimsical. Love it!
Just a quick note about the chandelier earrings - I can no longer get the vermeil chandelier component, so these are a one-of-a-kind pair of earrings!
There are also some really cool pieces on his site with a decidedly Japanese feel to them - check out Spanish Wave #1 and Cloudfish.

By the way, if you ever had the idea that modeling/photography is not hard work - guess again! The shoot lasted for about two hours, with only a few great shots to work with. Most of the time, we were trying to figure out the subtle nuances of what looked good.
This was a great learning experience, so hopefully next time we'll get more done. I like the idea of posting pics of how the jewelry actually looks on! I think I'll start adding model pics on my site soon.

A new style they carry that I thought was adorable - the Suki Laptop bags. These funky bags come in a few different prints, which of course, I love :) Below is my favorite, Apple Auto.
They also have neoprene portfolios and agendas available that are a great alternative to the traditional leather-bound styles, and other cute gadget accessories. Check them out - and save yourself from the boring sea of plain black laptop bags!

My goal for the weekend? Start putting winter clothes in storage and get some cool jersey dresses for the warmer weather. This adorable Ella Moss jersey dress in red pepper is my first pick, and a great casual daytime dress. I love the flirty ruffle and the side tie detail. Let's not forget that spicy color, though - it's bright and perfect for warm weather!
This next dress from Rachel Pally is super sexy and modern - I'd definitely wear it for a night out dancing! The low neckline and bust detail are fabulous, and the halter top compliments just about anyone. I'm also crazy about the midnight color and the flowy drape of the skirt.
Alright, now I'm really motivated to start packing those winter clothes away and making more room in my closet!

A little different than the longer earrings you'll tend to see on my site, these measure about an inch and a half long, including the hook.
I'll be adding them on the site in the next few days!

I personally can't resist bright and colorful shoes so I grabbed them in blue. I've found that these little puppies have the added benefit of comfort as well, which was a nice surprise. How could you go wrong for $24.99?

Once again, I had to reserve one for myself... I've found that pairing this necklace with is the Bollywood Pearl Earrings, and a colorful geometric headband or scarf make for a chic and unexpected combination.
Coming soon in sterling silver!!

What else is coming up, you ask? I am now working on accommodating international orders! First up? My Canadian neighbors. Hopefully this service will be in place by the end of March. A little secret though - if you're an international customer and see something you just have to have, contact me through my web site and I might be able to work out a PayPal option with you.
Stay tuned - there might be some important news about an upcoming sale!
