Hello, I can't afford you...

but I love you. This weeks Daily Candy featured "Deals" is by Dannijo a jewelry designer out of Mecca (aka NYC.) I just love the messiness of this piece and the fabulous blue stone. Too bad it's $465 ($325 with the deal.) I will dream of you Mare.

(please listen to Grizzly Bear's "I live With You" while viewing... so ap pro po.)

Today I am totally bummed. I am trying to start a business and the amount of money it's going to take to get it going keeps adding up. I hate money and managing it- I lost about 3 hours of sleep last night because I just couldn't get it out of my head. It shouldn't have to be this complicated but it is and it's totally got me down. I'm hoping a little investor I like to call my parents can offer some help. Ahhh I hate asking them though.

This morning while doing a little internet surfing (aka reading a few of my fav blogs) I stumbled across this...While this may seem like a normal picture of a web page to you it's actually from one of my favorite blogs - for me, for you... and she's writing about a jewelry designer named Laura Lombardi. LL is a talented (dare I say) metal smith but she also has the same name as one of my best friends on this earth. What are the odds? This one is for you Lombo! I think it's a sign I need to see you soon!

Snow in June

I think this stuff is called Milkweed- it's all over Lincoln Park covering everything like a blanket of snow. Beats the real thing!

Look at this darling ball of fur my friend Kelly just got! Oscar is an adorable feline that Kelly's boyfriend, Matt, brought home the other night. He is so playful and loves a good pashmina- my kinda man!

Dear Mother Nature,

I've been recycling and planting herbs this year so will you please warm up Chicago a little bit?
