I am now happy to announce that my designs are not only nostalgic and limited, I also offer one-of-a-kind pieces that you will not see anyone else wearing or holding. I scour thrift stores to find objects that still have a beautiful soul but have been tossed to the wayside. In this era of constant consumption and production it is extremely beneficial to reuse, recreate, and utilize pieces that have so much life to give. In this way I feel I am also giving back.
We are at a place where the over-production of items begins to feel out of hand and the appreciation of once-loved pieces are more cherished than the brand new. It feels good to wear something that is one-of-a-kind and yet has not created more waste or loss of energy and resources. It feels good to know this is yours and yours alone.
In Japan we call this animism, which means all objects have a soul. I love the opportunity to search high and low for objects with a soul that speaks to me so that I can use them to create something new for you to appreciate and love once again. Thank you for the opportunity; I just know you’ll find your next favorite piece in my shop.
I have been making some new products for my store as I’ve been gravitating towards these 90s and Y2K style t-shirts and tank tops– the kinds of things I wore in high school! I’m not sure when it was but I just realized that I still have a lot of my shirts from back then and I wanted more so I just started making them. I’m not sure where this is going but it’s starting here and I’m so excited to share it with you. I’m super grateful for Generation Z, and le controversial Euphoria, for bringing this style back so that we can appreciate it both again and in new ways. Yay!
I am also beginning to release my products in a stand-alone shop (coming soon), as well as on assorted resale shop apps. If you see my wares around, this is why! Don’t worry — it’s still me. My first/main shop with exclusive preorders is still located at Etsy.
Order food from etsy? What? Have you thought about it?
Recently my curiosity got the best of me (as if often does) and I wondered if people really ordered food off of etsy.. Upon asking on twitter, I found that a lot of friends and readers a like have been wondering the same.
Thus, this article is born and I get an excuse to support an adorable macaron bakery AND munch on the cookies. (win/win!)
I decided to order a set of macarons from Little Oven Bakery in New York City. They offer macaron packages on Etsy and I was smitten enough to try one!
The macarons arrived fast, within a day, and were packed up so nice that they had hardly crumbled at all. I was absolutely surprised and excited to be receiving one of my favorite decadent snacks in the mail. I couldn’t believe how well they traveled.
I tasted them with my husband — we split each macaron in half and saved the second box for later (tea time).
The Flavors I ordered were Raspberry, Caramel Fleur de Sel and Meyer Lemon. We absolutely adored the raspberry with chocolate creme, the caramel being a close second and in third the lemon. I prefer a more tart lemon so it was silly to order it as a sweet macaron, however we enjoyed eating each and every one of them.
Nice crunch on the outside with a soft macaron cookie center surrounded by a complementary creme. Creme desserts are absolutely a preference of mine and these were just as delicious as having them in a French cafe with tea. Not as beautiful of course, but macarons carry a special beauty with them no matter where they are and they please everyone they meet.
