Best In Show II

Last Sunday I attended Spring Bada-Bing Craft Show organized by the Richmond Craft Mafia. It was hosted at Plant Zero and was a well-organized event, with thoughtfully selected local designers and craftsmen.

These crocheted dolls are absolutely charming.
I especially love The Fox

I adore the shape, the pattern and the color combination of this purse.

When I saw this bag, it reminded me of my frined Jessica of Blue Elephant who rides her cool red scooter everywhere.

Great selection of totes featuring vintage dress patterns dating from 1930s to 1970s. Very unique and retro. Made by Hilary Martin of Haute Hilary: (

Would you like to have your eggs sunny side up? And would you like to wear them as your earrings? Then the Inedible Jewellry shop is right for you. Made by sisters Jessica and Susan Partain, the selection varies from doughnuts and cupcakes to slices of carrot cake and watermelon. Very cool and with a great sence of humor!

Spring Polish

With spring's arrival, it's time to get polished, shake off the winter's blues and put on a happy hue. The brights of the season are just so energizing! And so many colors to choose from!
I pick a bright orange for my toes: Y'all Come Back Ya Hear? by OPI. It is not too yellow, not too peachy. It has a perfect balance of everything that make your nails look flattering and modern.
For my fingernails I choose a neutral gray: Waking Up In Vegas by Deborah Lippmann. Am still in love with it, even though I've had it since last spring. I get so many compliments on it, people always ask me where I bought it.
If you are a perfectionist, and want impeccable manicure & pedicure that last longer, I recommend to always do the following:
  • use a base coat
  • apply two coats of lacquer
  • use a top coat
  • be very patient with drying
