Statement earrings to start.

I'm so excited to work on 
my summer collection 
despite the {freezing} cold weather 
we're currently having
here in 
Southern California. 
{where they say it never rains, seriously!?!}

First off, 
statement earrings.

These gorgeous beaded tassel earrings are making me crave 
bare shoulders 
and pinned up, 

and then there's rich and creamy {dreamy}, 
boho chic, long, bone necklaces. 
I can't choose a favorite, I love them all.

oh, and 


and lastly, 
business cards in 
Well, just because ...

doesn't everyone love cabana stripes?
They are the epitome of 
summer, aren't they?

Is it summer yet?

It's the last week of January,
my back yard is flooded, 
I have to wear a sweater every day 
because it's as cold as it gets 
here in Southern California,
I'm drinking coffee and tea by the gallon,
and I haven't used my blender in months.

All I've been doing is 
daydreaming about 

s u m m e r

summer clothes, 

summer meals, 

summer nights,

New year. New vibes.

Harper's Topiary Garden in San Diego. #mustsee

The holidays were amazingly busy and fun. 
I spent tons of time with my beautiful family, 
ate way too much super good food 
and just really took in all the 
love and joy of the season.

I loved every minute of it!
... but, somehow, I'm always really happy when it's all over 
and always really ready to start the new year fresh. 
You, too?

Like everyone else, I have huge plans for this year, 
some are last year's goals that still need to be carried forward 
with a new shot of enthusiasm 
and some are new ideas and practices 
that I can't wait to implement.

I hope you'll continue to stop by once in awhile,
I'm going to try again this year 
to be a more frequent blogger, 
and if you're interested, 
you can sign up for my newsletter here.

I hope to share the latest happenings, 
news and discount codes, again, 
hopefully on a somewhat frequent basis. 
It won't all be about my love for making jewelry, 
I plan to share some of my 
favorite things, places, and people 
{animals} that I come across along the way. 

This guy made me laugh out loud.

I'm not setting any carved-in-stone goals for myself, 
I don't want to disappoint or get discouraged, 
I just plan to be more 

M I N D F U L 

and grateful overall, and with that I hope 
to continue to share, and hopefully, 
inspire you, my friends, much like you do me.
