Pack Your Armadillos, We Are Going to the Desert

A lot of desert editorials these days. I'm not complaining though. I like it. Refinery 29

The Money Pit

Now that I have partaken in trying to fix up a place to sell it I wholeheartedly relate to this movie better then when I just watched it as entertainment. Now instead of just laughing at all their misfortunes I can now laugh hysterically while simultaneously cry with them. Fixing up a house that doesn't want to be fixed up will drive anyone to awkward lunacy... you should have seen me last night with a glass of wine in one hand and a power tool in the other...

Print and Purple

Love the texture from head to toe. And the pop of purple is perfect! Could I use more P's in a sentance?

If I Worked Out In Prada

I can assure you I wouldn't look this elegant.

Next Year Will Be Different

It's been a while since I've posted wistful spreads of sunny warm locals I'm yet to experience. Still grey over here with pops of blue every now and then. But we did partake in daylight savings time yesterday! Sweet, that gives me another hour of daytime grey... I guess I'll take what I can get until the sun shines through.

Disturbingly Hot

Little push a little pull. Little love little hate. Little obsession (that last one was for me on this spread). Loved it all. Love the disturbing. FGR

You Sure Do Got a Pretty... Hand.

I had given up painting my finger nails. After years of spending money for a pretty 2 day polish or wasting time painting them myself (which only lasted 1 day if I was lucky!) I said screw the hands, focus on the toes. There is much more satisfaction and wear down there. Low and behold I come across this mystical substance called Calgel. The blogs and yelps and editorials seemed too good to be true! A polish that doesn't chip? Doesn't file your nails to wrist cutting sharpness? Actually looks like nail polish and not armoured finger nails? Bah! But of course I had to see for myself... I'll try anything as I am one of the laziest beauty people I know (but I still want to look like the people who do try).
THE RESULTS: They were damn true! Unbelievable! Magical! I'm still shocked! I am going on a week and a half with no chips ( I just got a solid white color)! And let me tell you nail polish has a suicide wish on my fingers so this is pretty heavenly. I had to spread the word... to everyone. Everyone I work with, everyone I love, everyone that makes a comment, I say "Can you guess how long I've had these!?". How no one knows about this is beyond me! Why are people still using nail polish? I don't know. Commitment issues? The one downfall? Hard to find a salon that does it around here. But it's possible. Just google your ass off. It's worth it.

Etsy Love in March

Ruffle Ring
Begonia Leaf Earring
Trumpet Ring
Carved Petal Hoop Earring

Continuing my love for Etsy I found another amazing jewelry designer who works in mostly metal. Amie Plante is a professional jeweler, metalsmith, teacher, and product designer who has been in the biz for over 10 years. I literally added about 6 things to my favorites list. I am especially obsessed with her Ruffle Rings!
"These jewelry pieces give substance to dreams, and poetry through the juxtaposition of organic forms, abstract shapes, rich materials and endless variations of color, texture and composition." See more of her work at or here.

If I Could Contort This Way...

I'd quit my day job. Love the lines she creates. FGR

The Good Witch

I love the spring colors in this ad. The tights remind me of Oz and the colors remind me of Alice! Can't wait for the movie this month!!

Anyone for a Romp in the Hay?

Spring editorials get me excited for sunshine! And sunglasses! Started hunting this weekend but am still dreaming about the Miu Miu's so I'm in no rush to make any decisions! But I will take a daisy for my hair too...
