Currently into...

Just a couple of things I am either impressed with or obsessing over these days. Is there anything you are obsessing over that you want to share with me?


Donut charms. I have been looking all over Etsy for a donut charm, something like the above photo and then a blogger friend tweeted that her friend's sister opened up a storenvy shop to sell macaron charms. I dared and asked if she could make a donut charm, and within hours, she made two custom charms for me. I placed the order yesterday and I can wait to receive them.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi. If you are a sushi fanatic, you must watch this documentary. Jiro Ono is 85 years old, has worked his whole life making sushi never taking a vacation and is a perfectionist. Talk about dedication, inspiration and a love for their craft.  Even if it costs $300+ to eat at his sushi restaurant, I still want to try it. A wait list of over half a year, only 10 seats in the know this sushi will be to die for! After watching Jiro Dreams of Sushi, I will never eat at an all-you-can-eat sushi place.


Rich Kids on Instagram. This will make you mad. Seeing all these rich kids flaunt their parent's money. I have to admit though, it's kinda fun to look at.


Hipster Toddlers. Cuteness galore! Kids can be so darn cute, especially when their parents dress them like hipsters. I know of two kids who definitely need to be on here - Brayden S. and Fern H.


Oia Jules. I know I've talked about this Etsy shop before but because there is a promo code for 15% off until Sept 3, I had to buy another bracelet and necklace. I am completely obsessed and I think my sister-in-law has become obsessed too! You have one day to take advantage of this promo - STRIPES15. Don't miss out!

And before I forget, you have a couple of days, well, maybe two days (since pairings get sent out on Wed) to sign up for the Postcard Project over on Better Than Coffee. For more details, check it out here.

i love these posts! that donut charm is ADORABLE and i'm incredibly impressed that she was able to make it for you in no time. again, i'm so impressed with creative people. i was telling Ezgi on chat today how i wish i could sew (i told you this too! lol) but i'm the kind of person who couldn't even follow youtube instructions on how to piece together my breast pump kit. (tmi, but true story!)

obviously felix isn't going to be quite hipster though you know i'm going to dress her in as much vintage as i can ;)
