A few weeks ago (as you can tell with my longer hair) Alexandra Grant of To Vogue Or Bust and I spent the afternoon crafting up a fun DIY using the I See Noise World Map print. The two of us have been ...
>You know the saying “small town, big dreams”? Well, that doesn’t apply to me. I grew up in a city of 600,000 people – most with big dreams. When I was younger I wanted to grow up and be everything including the kitchen sink and sure enough I did everything I didn’t say I wanted to do.
As I’m getting older I have dreams of being in New York, how I get there I do not know, what I do there I do not know. What I do know is that I will get there. What do I want to do now with my life? Basically dress people in fabulous clothes and make jewellery. It’s aaalll happening.
I didn’t come from a small town, I came from a big city – and I have bigger dreams.
I just recently finished a new chain bracelet that I will definitely be making in more colors. It’s the perfect addition to most arm parties and adds a chic touch to all outfits! I’m definitely thinking about starting an Etsy shop for my bracelets and paintings…what do you think?!

PS. Did anyone catch the Victoria Secret Fashion Show?! Can you say AMAZING?!?! Oh and the 2.5 million dollar bra, no bigs. I got one of those.
I thought I’d start off the week with some of my favorite items from the weekend, possibly inspire some of you to purchase or create the same :)
Did you do anything fabulous over the weekend? I for one kept it low key and dedicated it to organizing everything in my place, searching Beatport for some great new house music, shopping for fun Christmas prezzies, one on one time with my mom and outfitting a client for fall!
Oh, and if you haven’t entered in my recent giveaway for a fantastic WTF? accessory frame by the lovely Kate Duncan – you really should! IT ENDS TODAY at 5pm so make sure to get those entries in quick!!!! You can enter by clicking HERE.

>My two besties Lyndsey and Tamar and myself are swapping gifts this year and we’ve never done the “Secret Santa” swap, we just get each other gifts!
I was thinking of doing something a bit different this year but still haven’t decided. While I was contemplating this new idea I came across one that would be perfect for all of you gift givers – “The Swag Bag” !!
This idea struck when I opened up my swag bag from the Gap x Style Spy Holiday Shopping Event and thought wow, these are such great and non cheap items that make a big impact!
You can wrap them however you want, I was thinking maybe a stocking, gift bags, various size boxes stacked like a tree, yadda – yadda – yadda…
Here are some great swag items to add to your bag:
