Sorry for the lack of updates here. I’ve caught a bit of a cold and starring at the computer screen doesn’t help the headache that comes along with it. I have however, been using all shreds of my free time productively making new items for my shop – as evident by the photo shown above. I mean, just look at all the Eggs earrings that I’ve conjured up!
Must’ve caught the bug so I’m taking a sick day from work today but only after sending out some important snazzy email. A happier carefree photo to contrast the flu: flower prepping for my birthday shoot last week.
The infamous red sole was really – excuse the pun – a stroke of genius. In 1992 Louboutin snatched a bottle of nail varnish from an assistant; painted the soles and alas that’s how the story began.
Christian Louboutin has come full circle and it all makes sense. His nail polish now is now available at all major department stores. At $45+ a bottle the most intriguing product is without doubt is the Loubi Under Red which is meant to be applied on the flip-side of your nail to echo the iconic Louboutin red sole. More than anything though I like that the packaging kept simple and clean to reflect the shoe itself and the purpose of use.
This giveaway features 1 Tri(as pictured). Funny thing is that I was a tomboy growing up so Sailor Moon wasn’t my thing. Yet all I can think about is Sailor Moon’s wand the I longer I look at this necklace.
Here’s how to enter (up to 3 entries):

I turned 26 today which means that the mandatory tradition of taking a birthday took place this afternoon. The paper flowers (26 of them – can you tell I’m trying to stick to the theme?) took a hella long time to make but so worth the time and my barely opened AM eyes. I took a staged photo of myself the day I turned 23 and have kept to this little tradition of mine since then.
All items at twenty5octobers are specially gift wrapped so that they arrive in style at your doorstep. I have a slight obsession with all things made of brown paper (hells yea, paper lunch bags) so you can imagine my excitement when I spotted these gorgeous hard cover boxes at my a local bookstore. Enter OCT10 for 10% off your entire order through the month of October!
