Let me introduce you to my amazing sponsors for June!

CalliopeKitten

First up is CalliopeKitten. Krystyn runs an adorable jewelry shop from right here in Toronto. Her shop is filled with colorful resin creations, some of which look so delicious you'll be tempted to take a bite! She makes everything from teeny tiny bottles filled with sprinkles, to resin animal pendants, and anything in between. Stop by her shop and take a look at all her wonderful jewelry.

Pearl Amour Jewels

Next I'd like you to meet Pearl Amour Jewels, a lovely little jewelry shop run by Asma. Using a wide variety of materials, Asma creates some very elegant pieces. Stop by her shop today and check it out. Right now, if you 'like' her Facebook page, you will receive a 10% discount on your order.

If you would like to sponsor my blog, please go to my sponsor page for details. I manage all my ads using Passionfruit Ads now, so the whole process is super easy. Ads can start at any time, not just the beginning of a month and run for 30 days. So you could buy your spot today and see it on the blog right away!

Ruche just released their Summer Lookbook called 'The Tuscan Sun' and it is so gorgeous. Every single page is beautiful. I basically want every outift, it's all so light and flowery! You should definitely head over to Ruche and check it out, but be warned you will want to just empty your wallet after you see it!

The View from my Phone: Week 23

Posted on June 10, 2012 and tagged Art & Photography with comments

Did you know that we get the keys to our new house in 78 days? Not that I'm counting. I've tried to jam my schedule as full as I can lately, just so I'll stop thinking about what day it is. This coming week I'll be working at show during Luminato and I'm very excited about that. I have plans to help out a bit during Summerworks too, but that's not totally confirmed.

This week I tried mostly to focus on getting a few new designs out there. I also saw a beautiful rainbow over Toronto, and began learning to code! The week would obviously not be complete without a couple photos of sleeping kitties. I'll never get tired of that!

Dress Like a Flower

Posted on June 8, 2012 and tagged Stuff I Like with comments

Wedding season is upon us and like most of you I've be searching the Internet for a new party dress or two. You can't be caught dead wearing the same dress to different weddings! Just kidding, I'm actually trying this year (as much as I can) to shop from my closet. But whether you're in the market for a brand new dress or just a couple accessories to brighten up an old one, why not take some fashion advice from nature!

This is the dress that started me on my quest to dress like a flower. The colours and the texture are so perfectly inspired by nature. You may also recognize this dress as one Amanda Seyfried wore during New York Fashion Week. Owning this gorgeous dress is a bit out of most people's price range at $2,100 but you can rent it from Rent the Runway for $275!

Dress- Nail Polish- Earrings

Pair this lovely lace number with a co-ordinating pink Diana. If you're into photography, a medium format camera can give you some interesting and unexpected photos that you won't get from digital.

Dress- Camera- Shoes

I know, this is a leaf not a flower. It still makes for great wardrobe inspiration. This leafy green dress would be great for an outdoor wedding and will look lovely in photos.
