{Wish I Was Wednesday} 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?

{Loved & Noted} DIY Rhinestone Bracelet, Bow Ring, & Crystal Cuff


I’ve been a member of For The Makers craft subscription for a few months now and I’m always excited to get my goody box. These really simple and pretty jewelry DIYs have a similar elegant look and look so fun to make! That rhinestone bracelet by Henry Happened can be made in a bunch of colors to go with any outfit. You have to know that I can’t turn down bows and so this bow ring tutorial is right up my alley. Raw and jagged, that crystal cuff by Stripes And Sequins is the perfect amount of edgy.

The {Loved & Noted} series touches on inspiration from creatives and fellow bloggers all over the world.

{Lust List} Watermelon Sparkles


Camilla Watermelon Earrings ($46) | Metallic Watermelon Flats ($52) | Strawberry Watermelon Cocktail

It’s finally Friday & I see the sun also finally peeking through my window blinds. We are heading to IKEA after work for a Swedish Midsummer! We stumbled upon it by accident last year & really enjoyed it. One of my fave summer fruits is watermelon. So today’s post is dedicated to this yummy treat that also happens to be quite stylish in sparkly form!

What’s your favorite summer fruit?

You might’ve noticed the pink kick. I think awaiting summer is getting to me! The bright hue just makes me excited about the warmer weather and days of swimming in the river.

Daydream In Hot Pink

Although I don’t claim pink as my favorite color, I can’t resist its girly charm. Hot pink has my heart lately (neon pink and blush still has a piece of it too). As we’re trying to figure out color palettes for the house, pops of pink are never far from my mind (much to the chagrin of A).

What shade of pink is catching your eye lately?

{Lust List} Ring In The Spring


I’ve been having a love affair with rings lately. Today I’m lusting after this sparkly Mercury Mystic Topaz (£35), this Ametrine & Ouro Preto Imperial Topaz (£23), this Rose Quartz & Pink Tourmaline (£35) and this Multi-Coloured Multi Gemstone (£35) from Gems TV Online. Their unique colors just draw me in.

Daydream In Crests

Yellow Owl Workshop Earth And Fire Pendant ($44) | DIY Jewelry Display Bust | Walnut Crest Plaques ($10-31) | Crest Shaped Mirror ($150) | Amethyst Crest Shaped Ring ($3985) | Shield Paperclips ($11/lot) | Currey & Company Bel Aire Chair ($870)

I know crests is kind of a strange thing to daydream about, but when I spotted that chair above, I couldn’t get it out of my brain. Yes, it was the black and gold, but it was also the shape. I just love how it can be both modern and traditional. Come back tomorrow for a fun crest related freebie!

Daydream In Lucite


CC Skye Lucite Clutch ($275) | Louis Ghost Chair ($410) | Lanvin Lucite Wedge Sandal ($1590) | Alexis Bittar ($275) | Lucite Trunk | Jonathon Adler Lucite Lamp ($487) | Natasha Couture Bead & Chain Necklace ($24) | Nesting Tables ($130)

With Spring around the corner, lucite is bound to be another fun trend. Since getting the nesting tables above, I can’t seem to stop looking at any piece of furniture that features lucite. It not only helps make a space look bigger, it’s fun when they’re injected with a hint of color. That clutch and those wedges (a pretty splurge!) would definitely go with everything.

Are you a fan of lucite?

Daydream In Lavender


Urbanears Headphones ($60) | Mini Chandelier ($60) | Michael Kors Griffin Sunglasses ($105) | Open Back Contrast Panel Dress ($25) | Faceted Triangle Bracelet ($11) | Maybelline Eye Shadow ($3) | Pauls Boutique Maisy Suede Patent Bag ($114) | Skinny Belt ($11) | Plum & Bow Corsage Shower Curtain ($44) | Cordy Roy Mouse ($24)

I’ve always been drawn to all shades of purple. Maybe because my birthstone is amethyst. The light hue of lavender has been fluttering my heart lately especially with the coming spring.
