Save your ears!

Did you know that earlobes tend to sag with age?  The earlobe starts to lengthen and wearing heavy earrings can only make it worse.  Or if you have thin ear lobes, you may find that drop earrings tend to "fall" forward on your ears.


What solutions are out there?  Fillers can help and so can totally needle-free solutions such as BlingDots and Ear Lift.

But how about my earrings, you ask.  Can I still wear them?  Yes, but go for alternatives such as ear leverbacks that fit snugly to ear lobes with a secure click.  You won't need to worry about losing them, especially if it is an expensive pair.  On the other hand, post style earrings can help to cover the lengthened piercing and droopy ear lobes.

Roses are Red, Violets are Blue

We will buy very pretty things
A-walking through the faubourgs
Violets are blue, roses are red
Violets are blue, I love my loves.

Finally ending off with this charming quote:

"The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily
do not rob the little violet of it's scent nor the daisy of its simple charm.
If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness."
― Therese de Lisieux

Pretty as a Pearl

"Who comes with summer to this earth,
And owes to June her hour of birth,
A pearl should wear against her skin,
Who's innocence many a heart shall win."
~ author unknown

Well said, Poster Pop :)

A Joyful Life

Discovering the films by Jubilee Project was one of those feel-good happy moments in life.  Film has always been a great medium to tell a story and I chanced upon Love Language as the first Jubilee Project film I watched.  It is still my favorite today.

The founders describe their mission as "ordinary people can do extraordinary things; and that doing good is contagious".  And what an impact they have created, especially in this 8-minute film below where communication transcends culture and language:

Inspiration :: Bohemian Gypsy

Drawn by the mystery and adventure of gypsy stories and the curious mix of colours and textures that make the bohemian style, I felt inspired to create a piece that would translate bohemian into modern wearable art.
