I promised you all a super kawaii giveaway last week, and here it is!

I love it when amazing and fun artistry comes from my hometown, so I am proud to say that these little beauties are from Miami-based artist Piktorama’s new brand, Bloody Family. Aren’t they the cutest??? I personally love that this line was inspired by her love for everyone who is different. I can definitely share the sentiment! Up for grabs are both Mr. Tofu wood engraved earrings and matching pendant. All you have to do is enter below & wait impatiently until Tuesday, Jan. 15th when I will announce the winner!

Rocks Paper Metal!

April 17th, 2012 | Posted in Fashion, Giveaway by Meli

Question is…does metal beat Spock? ;)

But in all seriousness, how adorable is the lovely Etsy shop, Rocks Paper Metal? I absolutely adore their bright and fun color palette and casually playful designs. And I’m definitely not the only one. The lovely ladies that comprise RPM (sweet moniker), Kat and Diana, were quick to fill me in that their hands are full. And they are not kidding. Each RPM piece is diligently hand made by one of them. Oh, to have these talents….

Thankfully, I come bearing good news! How would you like to get your hands on one of these pretties for a fraction of the price? Kat and Diana were sweet enough to partner up with the blog to offer all readers 15% off! All you have to do is type MELIFICENT at checkout. And as if that wasn’t good enough, you will also receive a little extra surprise in your package!

If you are more of the betting kind, try your luck at the lovely Fashionable ESQ‘s giveaway, where you can win a pair of Rocks Paper Metal earrings!

Update; I snagged this dainty bar bracelet with the code;

{Hunger Games Week}: Mockingjay-inspired Accessories

March 22nd, 2012 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery, Movies by Meli

Parties aren’t the only ones that are being influenced by Suzanne Collins’ epic trilogy, the fashion world is also being inspired to pick up some bow and arrows and play along.  I’m not complaining. I find arrows and birds to be beautiful touches to accessories, not only in the home, but also for wrist and neck candy. I personally want one of each of these lovelies, all found on Etsy, in case you are wondering. I am not beneath begging. ;)

1. Arrow Bracelet – $1.99
2. Silver Arrow & Bird – $50
3. Charms bracelet – $15
4. Deluxe Charm bracelet – $35

Lovable Friday!

1. Painted words as art

Like I’ve mentioned before, our walls are pretty bare in our home. It’s just so expensive to fill them up with nice, quality art. That’s why I’m such a huge fan of all these great wall art DIY’s going around, and I especially love this idea from Oh Happy Day. Who would have thought that writing your favorite quote using a paintbrush would look so elegant and refined? Both the hubs and I are big fans of simplicity and minimalism, so this project could not fit our style any more perfectly. This is one of those projects I’m definitely going to be attempting soon! Now to pick the quote…
