But enjoy!!

Lazy Friday Morning

Well, not too lazy. I went to the Post Office, and joined the panicked masses at Safeway. I bought loads of hurricane essentials, such as Annie's Fruit Snacks, Sun Chips, pears, and refried beans.

And milk?

And then I listed this necklace:

And for breakfastlunch, I made coffee, and ate it with a strawberry toaster thing (Nature's Path, my addiction).

I also took a chocolate mik, to make a mocha. Or something that resembles a mocha. Either way, I got this super amazing gif out of it:

Hah. Why does this please me so much??

Last night, I went to a DC Fashion Blogger Meet Up at one of my favorite stores, Violet Boutique, in Adams Morgan.

I wrote an elephant dress I got from there, and was sporting my polished new hair do. I also became BFF with jewelry designer Diamente!  It was great fun to meet another jeweler and we had a blast talking to blogger, but mostly gabbing about post office visits and chain types.

Aaaaanyway, we had wine and talked and it was quite wonderful. Some pictures of me getting ready:

Honeymoon Earrings

Two things:

Ben and I are now obsessed with the show Damages. Did I mention that? Does anyone else watch it? This second season I'm pretty confused, but that's ok. I'll play along.

Secondly, I made these super fun pyrite fringe earrings for my boss/friend/awesome designer Kristen of Ginger Root Design of DC. She got the stones on her honeymoon in West Virginia!

I am prettttty smitten with them. 

Crazy day

Today, my friends was a crazy day. It started off great, I got free sunglasses with my contacts, got all amped up on coffee...

And then Sadie came over and yada yada yada, I was showing her shoes I ordered for the wedding (which I hope fit)..

And lo and behold, the couch starts shaking! And the tv starts wobbling!! and it doesn't stop! So, we open the door (which was slightly jammed), and sprinted down the stairs. I didn't even have shoes on, I left the apartment door wide open, no phone, no nothin'. I never ran so fast. I honestly thought the building was crumbling. 

Earthquake! Crazy stuff. 

So after wandering around dazed, with everyone asking everyone in the street if they had cell reception (which they didn't), we went back up, had water and frozen strawberries, and then had drinks on a rooftop of a bar. Here is Sadie wearing her pair of silver heart studs in her second hole (darling).

Two Toned Triangle Necklace

I made this necklace, and then had a mini photoshoot. now im drinking wine with frozen strawberries. again. yikes.

Sunday, August 21, 2011


WEll, gang, here I am, sipping my sangria (aka red wine with frozen strawberries and a dash of orange juice), watching the last episode of the first season of Damages, our new favorite grown up show.

I also made a whole bundle of orders today, along with this new ring which is in the shop:

AND I made this, but by the time I finished it, it was dark out and I couldn't get any good pics!

This will do for now. Sleep tight, little cookies! 

Sunday Morning VIdeo

Ben is at work on this muggy Sunday morning, and I'm doing laundry and watching the Rachel Zoe project, which I fear I'll never stop watching now.

Anyway, here's a video I just made. I turned off the camera at the end by accident, so it stops abruptly.

Happy 100!!

To celebrate 100 subscribers, I bought myself a pair of shoes.

Fine, I bought a pair of shoes and then saw I had a 100 subscribers. So now I have a reason, I feel a little less guilt. hahaha. a reason. great reason.

Anyway. These are them. They are Dolce Vita, from Zappos. Only $60!

Ok??? Don't hate me. Just a little morning online shoe shopping for the soul. Or for my feet, I guess. Anyway. Now I'm making bows for a small earring order,  

And a couple of initials. Everything in my life is red.

I went to the eye dr. the other day for new contacts. Apparently I have pointy eyeballs? Anyway, I got new contacts that are like, extra deep, and it's freaking. me. out.

Anyway. All I want to do is eat dark chocolate I bought from Trader Joes. Instead I'll post pictures of some new things.

I switched things up with this necklace to be a little more asymmetrical, and I like it a whole bunch more.

New Necklaces

Lately I've had the urge to make big, elaborate necklaces. So, I am! I plan on using more chain in the future, but now I have two as part of the Chevron and Crystals series! Thoughts? Both are in the shop.

down to BUSINESS.

So, things are getting a little kooky around here.
But first, here's a picture of my and Molly's knees that a) look the same and b) have funny faces in them.


1. Must send out a rush order for a super honey knuckle ring, which I have to make. Right now.
2. I need to print all sorts of labels for packages but am out of ink.
3. I need to put together a medium sized wholesale order for a DC store.
4. I need to finish this mug of coffee. I put some sugar in it this time, and it's SO MUCH EBTTER.
5. I hate that I need sugar in this stupid coffee.
6. The apartment is actually disgusting. The hall light is out, and I can't see anything to clean in there. And it's a mess. So I need to call down and have a man come up and change it for me. (It's really hard to change!)
7. Oh, I'm getting married in less than a month?
8. We need to write the Ketubah (the Jewish marriage agreement vows thing)
9. I need to figure out when I'm going home to do everything else for the wedding.
10. I pray to god that my oxygen tank for the torch doesn't run out today.

OKAY. is that so bad???? yeah it kind of is. but not really. ok. what do i do first?? WHAT.

Poppy King

Listen. Ever since I read about this Poppy King lipstick for J Crew, I knew it had to be mine.

And after talking about it non-stop, Sadie and Julia bought it for me. (I have a sneaking suspicion that I wrote about this already...too lazy to check. A little repetition never hurt anyone. A little repetition never hurt anyone. haha. i just made myself laugh in bed.)

Anyway, it's fabulous. And this is how fabulous I looked this morning on my way to work, wearing my new shade from Day Trip Society in Kennebunkport, Maine!

The lipstick is like, an orange, red, pink combo. That makes anything look pretty. Even lil' old me.

Yes, yes. I swore like a sailor making these prongs, but I do love love love the results! 


Today, as opposed to tonight, I went to Target and bought two little paper gift bags that I've been eyeing. They were .99 cents for two. Who knew you could love a .50 gift bag so much? I just want to make it into a dress.

But I can't, so I used it to hold my earrings so I can admire them.

And then I was really enjoying how my hair looked, so I took some pictures and pretended to me a model for .5 seconds.

What did you do today?


I got some things done. It's been a year as of yesterday since Ben proposed to me, which is so freaky that it makes my head hurt. How did a year go by already?! WHAT HAPPENED.

So, to celebrate, we went out to this great restaurant in DC called Estadio and had tapas and tasty drinks.

We also had olives. Delicious, tasty olives.

And then before I went, Julia and Sadie bought me the Poppy King for J Crew lipstick that I've been talking about non stop. I LOVE IT.

Like the new banner?

I'm going daffy over these new fringe earrings. They are SO much fun to wear (and kind of fun to make?)

More fun to wear though.

Allow me to introduce you to the gang:

I call these bad boys Half Moons.
