A Jewelry Designer’s Inspiring Story of Recovery and Self-care

How to Make a Dazzling Beaded Bracelet

This is one beaded bracelet that everyone will be asking you about! I’ve only worn it out twice and it has been all compliments and “OMG, you made that?!” Trust me, when I say it’s so easy.

New Year, New Accessories: Top 2018 Trends

This weekend was blissful. The weather was amazing considering its end of January. But come today, we have major snow! It’s incredibly dark outside and it’s only 3 pm.

Exploring Sustainable Fashion with This Ilk

I was first introduced to This Ilk at Inland. Designer, Tamara Bavdek’s jewellery style and designs were nothing like I had ever seen.

I celebrated my 28th birthday this month. As I get older, birthday’s really freak me out. Usually, a month before I’ll start panicking about not being able to accomplish everything I set out to do. However, this year was different. I was prepared and actually excited for the day. So much so, that I majorly splurged on a pair of sneakers well before my birthday 😛 This year I figured out what career path I […]

65 Million Refugees Need your Help: The Pin Project

This week’s post is a little different; however, it’s an issue that needs to be highlighted. As of June 2016, there are more than 65 million refugees! 65 million people who have been displaced from their homes, lost everything they know and hold dear. They live off monthly cash assistance from the United Nations Refugee Agency. Despite everything, these people are willing to work but the lack of freedom denies them to do so. Muna, […]
