{Wish I Was Wednesday} Hanh Lam

Daydream-In-Color-Wish-I-Was-Wednesday-YDC-Hanh-Lam

I’m a sucker for a good cause & even more for good design. So, when these two things come together such as with Hanh Lam‘s designs for The Young Designers Collective (YDC), I’m sold! In the picture above, I’m wearing the edgy Ramona earrings designed by Hanh Lam. The cute little tassels are made with Alabaster white calf skin leather and topped with patina treated brass bobbles.

Part of the proceeds for everything in the YDC shop go towards a wonderful cause supported by the designer. Ten percent of these earrings’ proceeds go towards Book Aid International, a non-profit organization that provides mobile libraries for children in sub-saharan African villages.

These earrings as well as other YDC designs would be the perfect “double” gift for anyone on your shopping list. Give to a friend and to a charity in one swoop!

What are your favorite designs from the YDC shop?

Daydream-In-Color-Loved-And-Noted-DIY-Paper-Feathers-Paper-Bows-Simple-Kraft-Boxes

With the holidays coming up, my mind is swimming with wrapping possibilities.

These natural looking paper feathers by Lia Griffith are a cute option.

The cartoony and fun look of this DIY paper bow by How About Orange would be so perfect for my niece and nephew!

These sophisticated kraft boxes would look so prim and proper under the tree.

What’s inspiring your wrapping this year?

Have you started your holiday shopping? I can’t believe how quickly we are approaching the end of the year. Today, instead of an artist I admire, I wanted to introduce you to a brand I admire, SOLO Eyewear. Not only are their bamboo shades stylish works of art, but their cause is wonderful too. Every purchase helps fund eye care for people in need. Each pair of sunglasses are handcrafted and prescription friendly! Plus, the ones with designs are hand painted by the artist. Amazing!

So, get your gift sunglasses orders in and feel great about getting shopping done and helping those less fortunate!

They’re offering to you lucky readers get 10% off SOLO Eyewear through 12/31/13 with code: SOLOten. They also offer free shipping to the contiguous US!

Which pair are your favorite?

Camel Black Trimmed Cape ($18) | White Knit Infinity Scarf ($4) | Polka Dot Mittens ($5) | British Style Lace Up Boots ($35)

All of a sudden, it’s winter here. It was 32 degrees F this morning when I got out of the car and I was cold to the core! So, I’m lusting after stylish neutrals to add to my wardrobe that I’ll wear time and time again.

I recently partnered up with Everbuying and I’m seriously loving everything they have! The lastest fashions at wholesale prices plus free shipping. The pictures provide great styling options.

I think my favorite thing about winter are all the accessory options! Cute gloves or mittens, scarves, and hats all topped off with a jacket. Check out their jacket collection. There’s a mix of both classy and on trend. I also have a soft spot for cute sweater dresses.

What are you shopping for this season?

{Freebie Friday} Fotor: Free Online Photo Editor

Daydream-In-Color-Fotor-Lan-Su-Gardens

Happy Friday, everyone! Today, I’m excited to introduce Fotor, a free online photo editor. I played around with it and I just love all the options! The above collage was put together on Fotor. They have a variety of preset collage templates to choose from, but you can customize it from there! Want no white border? A different border? Filters? You can change it all!

The photos above for for Lan Su Gardens in Portland, OR. They are one of the venues we are looking at for the wedding. I just uploaded the pictures from my computer (you can also grab them from the web, your Facebook, webcam, Picasa, etc.) and dragged them into the template. I applied a warm filter to give it an instagram or vintage postcard look. Everything is super user friendly. You can then add text (all fonts installed on your computer are options). I used the font Lighthouse (for personal use) above.

There are also plenty of clip art options you can insert and you can even make personalized greeting cards!

What are you going to edit or create with Fotor?

Daydream-In-Color-Lust-List-Republic-Of-Pigtails-Simone-Hair-Clip-Apple

You all know my love of bows and my love for my new Republic of Pigtails bow made from a pretty textured red fabric and gold ribbon. I’m wearing the Simone Hair Clip in Apple above. It’s the perfect way to up the cute factor to any outfit. It even has a hint of sparkle on the red fabric making it great for a night out look too.

Definitely check out their website. They also have super cute fascinators that would be perfect for a party or my upcoming wedding!
