Hey, Greg Klassen the brilliant furniture maker, let’s be best friends for eternity so I never have to worry about another piece of artistic furniture ever again. Your River Collection is pure dreamy craftsmanship. Seriously, I’m complete bestie material. 

Pst. My birthday is the 10th of October, just so you know. 

I’m still honing my skills to perfect working with dimensional coating. This precious Jaded Polka necklace will be store in a dry box here on out to prevent any coating changes while it waits for someone special to pick it up from the shop. Think you want to bring Jaded Polka home? 

I’m pretty sure I’m allergic to alcohol but I would love for this Homer and Marge Simpson wine bottle to be real and for sale! To use this as home decor would be so lively and fun. Designed by Russian designer, Constantin Bolimond – you can see more of his work on Behance.

More Simpson-based design here right on the blog. 

Telmo Pieper’s artistic skills have certainly took on a different direction since his childhood. A Dutch muralist, Pieper digitally recreates – via photoshop – drawings he made when he was four years old. 

I have a few of my own childhood doodles an arms-length away. It’d be interesting to see how I reinterpret it now that I’m all “grown up.”

A Long Way Down starring Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots. 

Jess: Okay. Just got a few things to clarify. Number one: my gown is open backed cause they’ve stolen my clothes so I’m just going to do a twirl for you right now and you can look at my ass just once. It’s not my best feature but that’s something that you’ll probably find out the more we get to know one another. 

Something light for a movie night. Mind you, when I say light I’m not referring to the plot line where four suicidal individuals cross paths on the day they all want to commit suicide. Despite the subject matter I didn’t find this movie to be depressing. Imogen Poots was most definitely my favorite character hence the quote up top. The dialogue that her character brings adds a little kick to it all. For me, this is something to watch on a day where I don’t feel like any of the usual movie genres suit my moods. So consider this movie on a day where you need an in-between.

Realizing that I had forgotten to upload this new pair of earrings to my Scavenge collection is such a nice surprise. On any other day I would’ve shouted, “Seriously?!” to myself for forgetting but not this week! Reason being is because like the klutz that I am, I cut the fatty drumstick part of my palm (have no idea the right term for it) with a fork last night. Yes…a fork. I was prepping kiwi for a smoothie when the slow motion accident happened. I’ve been so busy during the day that I haven’t had much energy to make new items for the shop so I hope Cordilla makes up for it while my drumstick heals!

Needing a little more energy to push through the remaining week and a bit till I get my one week summer break.

Abracadabra! I now have freshly blended kiwi, peach, orange, and banana juice. So yes, I consider the Magic Bullet to be one of the great magicians of our time. This is totally not a sponsored post — I’m just genuinely happy about invention because having my daily intake of fruits and vegetables somehow makes me feel less guilty about sitting at my desk the whole day during work.

Cross my heart — I haven’t forgotten about my beloved blog. Work has been, and is, incredibly busy to a point where it’s gotten a bit overwhelming…Not to mention that there is always that one or two colleague(s) who speaks so condescendingly and belittles my existence that I start to wonder about their humanity. Needless to say, I’m so beat and tired. I wish this week would just hurry up so that Saturday can meet me with open arms.
