Weird but still very lovely June 9, 2011

This is just my type of jewelry because this is how I hope people perceive me: weird but still very lovely.

The duo of creators describe their work:

WEIRD but still very LOVELY

COMPLEX but still very SMPLE

RAW but still very SOFT

FUNNY but still very SERIOUS

SAME but still very DIFFERENT

ABSTRACT but still very CONCRETE

CHEAP but still very EXCLUSIVE

NICE but still very DANGEROUS

BOYISH but still very FEMININE

I’m adding the cloud necklace to my wish list right now. You can buy Okiiko accessories here.

Make my shoes pretty April 15, 2011

I love the shoe clippers from Ban.do, they make me want to partaaaay. Yes I realise how extremely ironic it is to write about partying on a Friday night… already in my pajamas… sitting on the sofa… very close to get the last ice cream from the freezer. But I’m taking a little rest from having too much fun before heading on holidays (where I hope I’ll have way too much fun). I’ve meant to blog about those shoe clippers since last December… what  can I say? Life’s just too busy sometimes.

This made me laugh so hard I had to share. Oh you might say they aren’t pretty, of course they are! and comfy… and just so hilarious.

And you can buy those beauties here and here.

Winter is coming… o.k, o.k not quite. But it really felt like it this morning. The moustache madness seems to have no limits and I’d happily add this new item to my moustache collection!

The girl behind those beautiful dresses is Anna, a 25 years old leaving in Brooklyn. She attended Parsons the New School for Design, majoring in Fashion Design. I immediatly failed in love with her work and can totally see myself wearing one of these above (just can’t pick one… but maybe I don’t have to choose… maybe I can have them all). I’m really looking forward to see the new pieces she’ll come up with. HAve a look around in her Etsy shop.

I know I live in Ireland and I shouldn’t be surprised about the weather… but seriously? Can we get some sun too? Should I find confort in buying myself a new jacket at Soïa & Ko?

This necklace is super cute and sweet. I love the fact that the drawing is the actual drawing rather than a print. I love it but I don’t tink I’d wear it. And I’d love to give it as a gift, but I’m not sure any of my friends would actually like it enough to wear it. I’m pretty sure I’ll end up buying it waiting to find the right person to offer it to… and it will turn out that the right person is me 🙂

This wouldn’t be the best gift for your vegetarian friends kid… or it could be if they’ve got a great sense of humor. Since my last post about plush, my daughter has actually started to like plush toys… this would make a perfect favorite!


Will my baby love this? July 2, 2009

I’m a silly mum desperate to get her daughter to love plush toys so she can play with them! Could she get attached to a slice of bread or even better a toilet paper roll plush? Heidi Kenney from MyPaperCrane is creating funny and unusual plush toys for kids and for adults. Her weirdest creation: tampon plushies. It could make a funny gift, I just have to figure out which of my friend could deserve such a gift!

The little mustache is very cute but I can’t stop laughing about the dentures soap! How funny would it be to surprise your guests (or freak them out) with the gift of false soap dentures next to the sink when they’re getting ready for bed?
