Etsy love

Etsy has just about everything. 

The search form and results page kinda bugs me but otherwise this is a great site. And, there are some great party planning resources that have just recently popped up.
I am loving Ginger Jars these days

I just ordered this beauty from this Birmingham jewelry maker. Perfect ring for a day in the water when I am feeling protective of my wedding ring or when I don't want a shark to attack something sparkly. Hey, it could happen!

This are perfect for my next get together

I love this for our downstairs.

Off to Camp Orientation

Today I get to head to my "summer home!" By that I mean camp. This year is a little different though. This year I am old enough to be a counselor! This will be my seventh summer at camp and in total I will spend 5 weeks at camp. For now, I will be gone for one week for orientation. I don't really know what to expect but I know it will be a blast since all the counselors working this summer will be at camp at the same time. This means me and my three closest camp friends and all of the other counselors will get to have camp all to ourselves. I'll see y'all in a week and while I'm gone don't forget to enter my giveaway ( I'll draw the winner as soon as I get back!). Below are a few pictures from last summer. I'm posting this from my phone so ignore the odd setup and spacing!

Happy Summer!

KissTixx Success Story   



During the summer time I love the look of wearing stacked bracelets. Every year it seems to be "on trend" in one way or another. Lately, I have really liked the look of beaded roll on bracelets like the ones offered on Nuptse's etsy shop. The owner hand makes these bracelets and I love the colors and designs she chooses. I have three bracelets from this shop and towards the end of the school year I wore them daily and received so many compliments. Here are two of the ones I have:
These bracelets are really comfortable too. They just roll on and during the process they do not pinch your skin at all. Before long I hope to order a custom set of six from Nuptse because her prices are some of the best I've seen. Here are my favorite bracelets from the ones available on her shop at the moment:
This set has a fun mix of blue, greens, and golds and I think the set looks great all together but would look equally as pretty separately.
How can you not love the vibrancy of this red and turquoise combo, this would be cute for the fourth of July!

I hope all of you had a great Memorial Day and enjoy your shortened week!

Interview with Eleanor Hardwick

Eleanor Hardwick is one of the most talented photographers of her generation. Based in the UK, Eleanor has shot for publications like Harper's Bazaar and Dazed & Confused. She is also a staff photographer at the awesome teen online mag, Rookie. I had the pleasure of meeting Eleanor when she was over in NYC over in the year. We are collaborating on a shoot when I am in England this summer. Enjoy my interview with her below, and be sure to check out more of her work here:

Tell me a little bit about yourself, what you do, and your photography.
When I was twelve, I decided to pick up a camera and upload the pictures to My passion grew from there, and when I was fifteen, The Independent and Dazed & Confused asked to interview me. The press recognition led on to interest from commercial clients. I’m now eighteen years old and work full time whilst living in the British countryside that is the backdrop for most of my work.
As a teenager, I think it’s important for my work to be about what I know best, which is being a teenager. Adolescence is fascinating… it’s like the limbo between being a child and an adult. It seems to last forever but then you find yourself looking back wondering where your childhood went. My pictures often question this unsure time, where you’re working out what you want to be when you grow up... whether you even want to grow up at all. I study a lot of cultural, historic and literary references in my work too. I love to plan things out in immense detail, which is why I never stop working and doing what I love.
I think Tavi and I have become very close online. That’s what’s great for young artists nowadays… the internet has become an great platform for teenagers to have a voice. I am so happy that work that is ABOUT and FOR teenagers can be BY the teenagers themselves, and be recognized. Rookie involves both the readers and really experienced writers, so it’s the best of both worlds. I feel like it really one of the best magazines for teenagers at the moment because Tavi one hundred percent understands what young girls want to read about, and lets readers get just as involved as the staff do.
My favourite artists would have to be Yayoi Kusama, Dasha Shishkin, Henry Darger, Pipilotti Rist, Abigail Portnet, Gustav Klimt, Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dali and Alan Aldridge.
My list of favourite photographers is much too long, but I’ll always be a massive fan of anything by Tim Walker, Ryan Mcginley, Venetia Scott, Saga Sig, Lukasz Wierzbowski and Lina Scheynius. There are so many incredibly talented young photographers emerging online too: Petra Collins, Erica Segovia, Lauren Poor and Mike Bailey Gates.

Tell me about your most recent shoots and your work for Rookie Mag. .
I work alongside Rookie Magazine every month, it is so much fun to work for and the briefs each month are so inspiring. 
I’ve also been very busy recently working on my collaborative exhibition with Mirren Kessling, which will be at the Modern Artists’ Gallery in Oxfordshire later this year. Mirren is another incredibly inspirational teenager, check out her illustration work if you don’t know it already. We work on lots of mixed media projects together, and she also makes a lot of the props for my shoots for Rookie.

What is your most favorite shoot you have done so far?
That is such a hard question! My photographs are my babies, I couldn’t pick out a favorite.

Do you have any dream shoots or ideas that you'd love to work on?
I would love to do a fashion shoot in India. I went on holiday there last winter and I think it is the most beautiful place in the world.

What are your favorite magazines, blogs, books and films for fashion?
Lula and Rookie magazine are my bibles. I’ve been buying a lot of exhibition books lately for inspiration: Yayoi Kusama, Cindy Sherman, Henry Darger… Films are always an inspiration too. For me it would be aything by Sofia Coppola, Michel Gondry, Terry Gilliam, Harmony Korine, Miranda July, Stanley Kubrick, Woody Allen, Shane Meadows, David Lynch…

How was it being featured on Monki TV?
It was the best interview I’ve ever done! I’d never done any video interviews before so I was kind of nervous, but I got so into it and had so much fun hanging out with the crew and showing them all of my favourite things.

If you could photograph any celebrity or model, who would it be?
Lindsey Wixson, Daphne Groeneveld or Iekeliene Stange.

What publication would you love to see your photos in?
Lula or Vogue.

Who is your style icon?
The Banjara tribe in India. Or Strawberry Switchblade!

Who are your favorite designers, artists, and other photographers?
My favourite designers are Meadham Kirchhoff, I love every collection they’ve ever done. Also Comme des Garcons and Luella (R.I.P.)

What is on your summer fashion wish list?
Sunny weather, adventures with friends, and Christopher Kane’s Spring 2012 collection.

What can you see yourself buying from Audrey Grace?
Too many pretty dresses! I’m after a really beautiful silk and lace slip at the moment.

The Frat Collection Giveaway

At the beginning of this month I did a post all about a new company I had discovered and I am so excited that today one of my readers will be able to have a shirt from this company also! I love my shirt from this shop and could not be more excited about how it turned out! My Frat Collection shirt is the Monica on a white shirt (boring, maybe but it goes with lots!).
This is my shirt right after I tore open the package it came in. It is safe to say that I love mail. I immediately put it on and holy cow this shirt is so soft! I like my t-shirts big on me, so I ordered it in a medium when I wear a small in most clothing articles. I hope that helps out with an idea of the sizing! I love my shirt and I will be ordering more once I make my mind up about what colors to choose. I've already worn this twice and have received numerous compliments on how cute it is and I am sure the winner of this giveaway will as well! Here are two of the outfits I instagramed while I was wearing this shirt:
w/ pink gingham nike shorts
w/ yellow and pink nike shorts
With 29 and 19 likes respectively I have no doubt in my mind that these shirts are sure to become a hit!
Now for my readers, it is time for you to win your own! This giveaway will take place from today May 25th all the way to June 7th!

Atlanta Real Estate

I will leave you with a pretty piece of property before the holiday weekend.

For you Atlanta peeps, this property is off Northside Drive in Buckhead; massive doesn't begin to describe this property.

There is a lake or four thrown in as well

 If I lived here, there would be a furniture dilemma.... what do you put in the circular room?

 I could work here...

 Do you really need this much wine?

I will take the guest house please.
