The fact I can’t find this anywhere, coupled with the fact it would be a (super awesome but) complete waste of money if I was to find it and invest means NOTHING to me.  I love this shirt.  I’m not even all that much of a sequin girl…but dammit I would be for Ashish.

Petal Power.

Sony is smart.  Sony is REAL smart.  Or at least their advertising agency is real smart.  To represent the number of pixels in the display of their new TV, Sony released 8 million stunning colored petals into the Costa Rican landscape for what is not only one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen…but also one of the most intensely creative.

Not to mention the fact that watching it gives me some intense sense of calm and pure joy.  Freaking brilliant.

Funny Little Easter Bunny.

15 Apr

Easter has never been a massive holiday for my family but it has always been an adorable one.  When I was a kid, my parents would hide our always glorious Easter baskets and, while hunting, we were greeted by beautiful foil-wrapped mini chocolate eggs and carefully placed jelly beans all around the house up for grabs.  My surrogate grandparents a few houses down would wake up early and decorate a small tree along the walkway to our front door with bright eggs before we had risen, so we would think the Easter Bunny had been extra nice to us.  And when we had finished our treasure hunt around the house, they would show up like clockwork at our front door with warm cinnamon buns fresh out of the oven, letting my brother and I tell them how cool it was that the Easter Bunny had made such a big visit to our home.

That being said, my mom has, in the last couple years that I have been back in the States for Easter, hidden my Easter basket.  Last year, she REALLY got me.  The entire hunt seriously stressed me out.  In thinking she would be harder on me as an adult when it came to a good hiding place, I was obviously reading too much into it.  (It was next to the TV.)

There’s something so delightful about Easter.  Yes, I know it’s a celebration beyond a terrifying woodland creature hiding chocolate around the house.  But there are so many cute ways to welcome the springtime for this holiday and I wanted to share some of my favorites this year.

Though I won’t be decorating any Easter eggs this year, it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be totally happy to do so.  (Don’t think it hasn’t been brought up in my apartment.  There was a look of exasperation mixed with patience when I was distracted to the point of almost drooling over a metallic egg kit.)

Check out this super sweet tutorial on how to make these golden confetti dipped eggs from Studio DIY.  They are the perfect blend of my stylish maturity and my childish obsession of all things sparkly.

These cutie pie bastards are the brain child of Miss Renaissance who appears to also share an affinity for a bit of gold leaf (and the introduction of some baller Washi tape).  Check out how to create these beauties here.

Oh Happy Day decided to speak directly to my obsessive compulsive crafty side with these place cards.  There is glitter.  There is chocolate.  There are freaking lovely colors.  Find out how she made them here.

Rounding out this series of Cutie McCuteness is Heart Made UK with these sweetie pie center pieces.  Augh, I want them to exist forever.  All over my house.  Sort it out, Easter Bunny.  (See the tutorial for these bad boys here.)

Now I have to figure out what I’m making for dessert for Easter Sunday.  And emotionally prepare myself to dive face first into a chocolate bunny/Peeps situation.

A Sunday Well Spent.

Rad Picks at Reformation.

8 Apr

I recently came across a dress on the world wide web that I fell in love with…come to find out it was from Reformation…and also come to find out it no longer exists on the site.  BOLLOCKS.  But, regardless, the more I explored the site (admittedly for the first time in quite a while, especially with a couple impending summer weddings in which I would delight in a new frock or two), the more a bigger problem reared its face.

I want to try everything on.  I want to buy everything.  I want to have costume changes at said love fests.
