Skull And A Spike

28 Jan

The beginning of my weekend was a bit sad, I bought risotto some time ago waiting for the perfect evening to cook it and I like to think I’m pretty good in the kitchen for an amateur chef. It’s been a while since I made a dish which took 3 hours and 18 minutes to make and to end it by not having the texture I’m accustomed to.  Although the flavor was a hit the texture was a miss. While in Italy I had an endless amount of risotto and I was eager to make it hoping it would whisk us back to our great Italian memories, but I was let down. Not so fast Mr. Risotto did you forget I enjoy a challenge! You better believe I’ll be back!

Now for the great part. I got some trinkets for my home office, narrowed down my color palate, designed new jewels and completed  few DIY little projects that I’ll be posting  one tomorrow.  Hint: think gold chevron pretty paper.

Now for the fashion part of this post. I’ve been wanting to wear this hat but since I live in L.A it would be kinda silly if I wore it on a sunny day although most hats are made for the sun, while in my case it was for a bad hair day and more importantly to keep my head and ears warm.  Then we had this amazing 65 degree weather finally!! I was able to wear Mr. Wool Hat…..  take a peek!




Hat: Spain|Skull T: Nikki Beach Marbella Spain| Blazer: Jcrew|Jeans: Rich and Skinny| Booties: Charles David| Purse: Italy trip: Lips: Mac Media| Nails: essie mink muffs.


What do you think of our new designs!!? !! infinity chain necklace (old) but great for layering, Kelsi pearl necklace and pyrite stone with a spike, wooden stretchy bracelet and pearl knotted bracelet. Made by yours truly essentjewels!


As, always Carolina xoxo
