verameat is a jewelry line i discovered at the renegade art fair that took place in LA a couple weeks ago. she does a collection of tiny rings which i am loving. it’s refreshing to see these delicate designs after all the finger armor type rings that are trending. i finally found the perfect pinky ring
italians do it better
i still use my bottega veneta cross body bag that i got years ago. it’ll remain an all time fave. it’s the perfect size for everyday use. i came across a video of the craftsmanship that’s involved in creating their items. click here to see the process.

my favorite mistake
i’m in a sentimental mood this evening, but then again when am i not. i’m nostalgic by nature, being that i’m a cancer and that is one of our traits. the above photo is the store i once had. sigh…ok, on to plan e
watching foreign and indie movies from netflix is a form of escape for me. i like to get lost in movies set abroad because unfortunately i can’t travel as often as i’d like to, so this is a quick fix. my last “trip” was to vietnam via “the lover”. kudos to the costume designer for jane march’s outfit. she basically wears the same dress through out the...
morning becomes eclectic
one of the things i missed the most while living in ny was being in my car and listening to kcrw. streaming it online just didn’t have the same effect. they have lots of great dj’s but morning becomes eclectic with jason bentley is my easy listening. kcrw is my ultimate source for new artist. what are you guys listening to?
i got it from my momma
this is a photo of my mom in her early 20s. she’s still just as beautiful today. i recently started using sweet almond oil as a moisturizer based on her recommendation. it’s so perfect to use in replacement of a night cream. you wake up with fresh dewy skin. the effects and benefits are so similar to la mer, minus the $$$. look it up on google for more info and i’m sure...
