Hey everyone!
So I had heard about this website called Pinterest for a few months now and never really bothered to check it. However last week finally I decided to take a look and see what it's all about. Basically it's like an online pin board where you pin your favourite things to your boards for inspiration. You can find boards on food, fashion, photography or anything else you can imagine!
For now the site membership is by invitation only, however you can submit your email and they will contact you when you can join. 
I received my confirmation over the weekend and signed up right away. I'm obsessed! I think I spent 3 hours on Sunday just going through different profiles and looking up awesome pictures!

Here's a print screen of some of my current boards:

I'm sure I'll spend many hours adding new ideas and inspirations to my page in the coming weeks as it's quite addicting! Any of you have a Pinterest page? :)

Things I'm hoping to add to my creative studio (AKA Bedroom)!

Hey everyone! Hope you all had an amazing weekend! :)
Mine was quite nice. My grandma is visiting and I got to see her after 1 year! So we spent most of yesterday with her which was perfect. And today I got to get some of my other things done around the house.

Lately I've been thinking about getting a few things to improve or assist with my jewelry work. I've had so many ideas in my head over the past few weeks about my new collection and how to present them, etc. However there is one big purchase that I'm still wondering about and that would be buying something similar to these babies:

I've been struggling a lot with lighting when photographing my work and I don't really have a lot of options to do photography outside in the yard due to unpredictable weather conditions in Toronto! So I'm thinking these might help solve some of the problem, however their big price tag is delaying the splurge a little bit! O:-)

I believe photography is very important when you present your creations and I've been hoping to improve on that a bit this year. Of course playing around with my cameras and learning a few things about the different options will make a big difference as well.

If anyone has used or is currently using similar lighting to the picture above I'd love to hear how it's been working out for you and if it's worth spending the big bucks! :D

7 Deadly Sins Beauty Tag

So I decided to do something a bit different today on my blog. I've seen this tag going around in blogs and Youtube a lot lately so I thought why not, I'll do my very first tag blog! So here we go.... :) 

7 Deadly Sins Beauty Tag

1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
Inexpensive: Probably my Loreal eye make up remover (around $5)
Most expensive: My YSL foundation (too much!) 

2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? 
Probably body butters! I don't always feel like I want to put a lot of thick creams on my skin as it takes away the clean feeling sometimes. But sometimes I'm tempted by the delicious smells and use tons.

3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?
I love my passion fruit and strawberry EOS lip balms. Also still in love with scent of my "Kimono Rose" bath products from Thymes. It's amaaazing!! :)

4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?
I don't know if it's due to laziness, but I tend to forget my eye cream a lot. And sometimes deep conditioning treatments for my hair!

5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?
Probably foundation. My skin has it's good and bad days..

6. LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?
Spirituality, selflessness, kindness and an attractive face! :->

7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?
Hmmm.. I appreciate all gifts as it's the thought that counts.. But if I had to pick maybe bath and body products (cause I can never have enough) or a nice book, or something handmade! :)

Hope this was a fun read and I tag anyone and everyone who found it interesting to do this tag! Have a great weekend!!! :D

New Video!

Hi Everyone!
Inspired by spring and one of my favorite songs I've made a new Youtube video showing some of my jewelry work. 

I've also been working on a few new jewelry projects that I'm very excited about! I hope I can get back to blogging more frequently now.. I've been too slow with that!
