Minty fresh, Teal I’m Green.

Lately I’ve been pretty obsessed with colored jeans. This just means I spend hours online perusing websites selling brightly hued pants without actually you know, purchasing them. I asked a few friends and some of them were aghast as to why I’d even THINK of decorating my pins with anything other than black or blue. I remember how I used to make fun of my bestie’s purple cord pants. In retrospect, they probably weren’t that bad and I’m clearly aware that I’m eating my own words now. ;)

Out of all the shades on the color wheel, I felt particularly drawn to the mint green and teal varieties. They’re not too far from the norm yet they don’t truly fit in either.

Alas, these prized pants are not easy to find. Nevertheless, here are some of my favorites:

Asos Petite Mint Green Skinny Jeans. This one reminds me of candy and sweet sherbet. Definitely my fave.

Modcloth Bookish Babe Jeans in Aqua. These are more blue than they are green or mint green so I think I’d pass this one.

Perhaps for something a bit ‘louder’, these green pants from Modcloth look great too:

Modcloth Days of Bold Pants

After much mulling over, I realized that even if I were to score one of these awesome finds, I probably would only wear them once. It’s the shyness in me, you see. Now, Brightly colored MAXI SKIRTS on the other hand, I LOVE. I have a few sitting in my closet and on my wish list but we’ll save that for later, yes?

What do YOU think of colored pants? Yay or nay?

Thin Rings

If you’ve ever seen me in real life, you would know I’m pretty small. Petite as they call it. My wrists and fingers are teeny which unfortunately means that I can’t parade them in chunky rings or men style watches. I seriously have a fetish for huge watches like the ones from Nixon but my arms would drown in them. Likewise with chunky rings, my fingers look half their length.

Which is why, I tend to gravitate towards slim rings. I know not many women covet this style as they look somewhat *ahem* inexpensive compared to the standard engagement or wedding bands. Nonetheless, this just means I get to break free from the norm. :D

I fell in love with this one by catbird:

Simple and elegant. It’s in rose gold which makes it even sweeter. Yellow gold reminds me of haughty ladies while white gold tends to be too polished for me.

For a little punch of color, these babies from Tulajewelry would be just perfect:

She uses different types of gold as well as gems. Her diamonds are even conflict free, a criterion I look for in jewels.

These on the other hand, aren’t your standard polished or glamorous rings but they snagged my heart nonetheless. Check out these Hammered Bands by 8CTO:

I think these are my favorite. They come in¬†Copper, Silver, Antique Brass or Gold finish and are stackable. I love how ‘unfinished’ they look. It gives a raw, ancient Greek kind of vibe. As if Hephaestus himself crafted these beauties.

Now…all I need now is to hint to a certain someone about these rings. :D Post Valentine’s gift, yes?

Well actually, I already have one with me that holds such special meaning ¬†hiding in its jewel claws. That’s what’s important to me about rings and jewelry. The story behind each one. Not the price, not the trend but the immense emotional value they hold.

Hope you lovely ladies find your own special piece one day. :)

Thar she blows!

I’m back! After an extremely long hiatus, I decided to come back and post about some of my favorite things.

I’m going through choppy waters now so I thought I’d keep myself afloat by indulging in some cute thoughts and pictures. Want to join me on the ride? Let’s go!

A few nights ago I dreamt of a Narwhal. Yes. A huge, magnificent NARWHAL. What’s a Narwhal? Well, imagine if a unicorn and a killer whale had a baby. That baby would be the coolest whale on the planet.

Anyway. It was just amazing to see him break through the water, spraying a fine mist up towards the atmosphere. His smooth, gray skin was tinged pink and orange from the sunset. It was such a glorious moment, that I squealed in delight. I distinctively remember exclaiming “It’s a NARWHAL! I will write a story about a narwhal one day!”. Sigh.

Now I will have to make this dream into a reality because I don’t think my heart can rest until I’ve actually met a Narwhal.

Oh and I’m pretty sure the dream was partly because of this beautiful, almost ethereal painting. I can’t for the life of me know who it belongs to, I surely didn’t do it. If you know who the artist is, please let me know. The picture is too beautiful not to share. Oh and please don’t copy and paste this and claim it as your own.
