....wear them! 

Today's post is all about wearable fruit! That is- fruit prints, such a lemons! Its summer after all, so theres no better time than now to bring some life to your wardrobe. 

I have to say, it wasn't until I went to the Amalfi Coast of Italy before I really saw the beauty of lemons. I vividly remember walking the hidden streets of Positano and coming across a gated garden where the vibrant yellow of lemons against the lush green garden and blue water in the distance caught my eye. I peered through the gates, as I had never seen lemons growing like this before in such a beautiful environment.

To be inspired in life by something is powerful- it can make us do...

Red. Its the color of strength, love, and boldness. In a way to break out of my #allblackeverything normal attire, I have been embracing more color this season, and red has easily become my favorite color to wear.

Hi, my name is Dani and I am a jewel-a-holic. I love jewelry and I am always on the lookout for new and unique pieces. My jewelry collection spans vintage, to costume, to luxury, to "I can only wear this 5 times before it tarnishes"pieces, to family heirlooms, and I cherish them all. For me, jewelry is a form of expression and statement, as well as meaning. I have pieces of jewelry I wear for strength, some for memory, and some because its really trendy and in style. 

I was recently introduced to a jewelry brand, Moonglow, who specializes in custom order jewelry by phase of the moon. The designs are beautiful and are completely unique and different to any...
