Speaking of faceted objects... I'd love to get my hands on one of Andrea Walsh's faceted boxes made of bone china, burnished gold, and glass. They would make good hiding spots for tiny things, no?

It's no secret that we're obsessed with faceted objects around these parts, so I have nothing but love for Lydia Shirreff's geometric sculptural works.

jellyfish

This is a fantastic idea: jellyfish made of air plants and sea urchin shells, by PetitBeast. In addition to succulents, I'm obsessed with air plants too.

score+solder

Posted by sarah
As summer winds down, I start to hoard indoor plants in preparation for the long winter ahead. Pops of green foliage at home will be a welcome sight against the bleak and grey winter scene out the window.

My favourite plants are succulents. They're low-maintenance, so I can trust that they'll still be alive and well when I get back from traveling, which I seem to be doing a lot of lately.

What better place to house your succulents than in these faceted Score+Solder terrariums?

I just ordered the Black Moon Ring from Nomoi Koru. I'll be monitoring my mailbox closely in the next few weeks.

This series entitled Outlived by Pat Perry is somewhat haunting, yet so delicately and intricately drawn that it elicits an emotional memory of past experiences.

heart of gold

Posted by jessica

A new watch with a sweet little gold heart attached to the second hand. After deciding that it was too painful to discover scratches on a more precious watch of mine, I went ahead and snagged this Casio number for those casual days. Polka dots and gold hearts go well hand-in-hand.

I absolutely adore the star version of the watch as well, available at The WhitePepper.


Art isn't just for walls. I love outfitting my everyday objects, like my phone, with art.


Another favourite is Leah Goren's Cats cover (currently 20% off!) by Iconemesis. She's a wonderful illustrator based in Brooklyn who draws all sorts of fun things.

Galaxy Lockets by Sophie Dear

I love nebulas. I think they are just so beautiful. In high school, my favourite science unit in class was, undeniably, Astronomy. Growing up, my very first email address even included the word "celestial" in it (I always get a good chuckle out of childhood email addresses), drawing on my fascination with celestial bodies. To this day, I'm not sure I can pinpoint why I have such a keen curiosity on the topic of Astronomy. I suppose I can chalk it up to my love of discovering things that are "other worldlyand my fascination with the scientific study of the universe.

For anyone who shares this fascination, check out the Cosmic Discoveries app from the American Museum of Natural History for your phone.  



I purchased this nebula skin for my laptop, and I know that it will serve as a constant inspiration for me.

muted

Pardon my absence from the blogosphere as of late. Although I haven't had the chance to post as consistently as I have before, I assure you that I will try to get back on schedule!

There is something special and exciting that I'm eager to present, and as usual, I'll be sharing that here on this blog soon. :)

In the meantime, I've rounded up a small collection of muted coloured objects to pretty up this page.

Pretty much a dream outfit by Natalia Grzybowski.  The construction of her pieces are incredibly unique.

la tulipe

Posted by jessica

I think the perfume gods listened when I hinted that Byredo Parfums should come to Canada. I couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted these near perfect bottles (seriously, check out their packaging) all lined up side by side. Good things come to those who wait patiently.

La Tulipe is like no other aroma I've encountered. I also love Blanche and Pulp


Dior's Crème de Rose lip balm also smells amazing (I'm a fan of anything rose-scented). I find that my lips are quite dry during the day. Applying lip balm before bedtime really helps to soften my lips throughout the day.


Some of my favourite nail colours are neutral tones like Naked by Deborah Lippmann, which is beige with a touch of pink. It's perfect for trying this black french tip design (image: Monique Lhuillier A/W 11-12) -- so simple and understated.

Leah Duncan's work comes pretty close to perfection, from the technique to the motifs, the colour palettes, and the objects that they adorn. Tea towels? Sure. Pillow covers? Yes, please. Scarves? Hell, yeah. Go treat yourself to something nice from her shop already.

 I never seem to get bored of watching the sun rise and set.  To me, it is honestly the most beautiful time of the day.

samantha pleet: romantic revival

Posted by jessica

I must've squealed with delight just a little bit when I saw Samantha Pleet's Romantic Revival collection.  It's certainly romantic, with a slight gothic feel, which makes for a stunning wardrobe.

The colour and composition in Andrew B. Myers' work is simply astounding. I can't believe that these images are photographs; they seem almost hyperreal.

cherry blossoms

Posted by jessica

Last Friday, a few of my friends and I took advantage of the glorious weather and headed over to High Park to take pictures of the blooming cherry blossoms. Though we were greeted with a slight breeze every so often, it certainly didn't stop us from enjoying the view.
