Brooklyn Love: Georgia Varidakis

I really love jewelry and I also really love Brooklyn, so finding local, amazing designers always makes me happy. Georgia Varidakis makes really cool pieces in everything from brass to sterling silver and gold. My favorites are definitely the claw necklaces and bunny heads. She’s a permanent fixture at Artists & Fleas in Williamsburg, but if you’re not in Brooklyn on the weekends, you can order from her site.

You Bought Your Holiday Gifts, Now What?

A Guide To Gift Wrapping

So you’ve finished buying all of your holiday gifts but they’re just sitting in the corner of your bedroom/livingroom/hallway waiting to be wrapped. You can go the usual route, and just buy some green or red tissue paper, some snowman or santa gift bags, or some happy holidays wrapping paper and call it a day, or you can do something just a little more special. I’ll admit, although I usually try to do something cool, after wrapping each gift with hello kitty wrapping paper for hours, I end up beat and then just write each person’s name in sharpie. However, I think this year I’m really going to put some effort into my gifts, and with these cute ideas, it really won’t be too hard.

A pretty little home to call my own

So, this weekend I am moving into a new apartment. It’s a cute little studio/1 bedroom (the bedroom is separate, but with no actual door), with purple walls and exposed brick. I have all of the furniture I would need- an antique Victorian style flower upholstered couch, a bertoia chair, a black and bleached cream antique table, a dark green antique lamp, and a plain old box spring bed that does not go with anything. However, it’s the home decor that I really need…okay, maybe, want..
