A few weeks ago I ordered the below furoshiki designed by Leah Duncan off of Uguisu along with a strap used to transform it into an easygoing bag. I really loved the print. Not only the colors (I’m still really into deep blues) but I liked how the hard edges of the design played into such a soft and smooth fabric especially when being used as a bag. I was feeling at a loss for a summer bag. Sometimes tote bags feel too plain but my super structured red fold over tote didn’t feel “warm weather” enough. When I saw this it was like a light went on. :) Plus with this strap I figure I can turn any scarf into a bag if I want to do so in the future.
I haven’t had a chance to put the bag together yet. I’ll try to skip off and do that now.
But here are some photos from their webstore for a better idea. They offer a bunch of different patterns.
I saw I hadn’t updated since last Tuesday and thought,
“Well that just won’t do!”
A little update. Today I received two packages.
One of which was from Anna! We did a tea exchange! Everything arrived so perfectly pretty in the package I almost didn’t want to remove the tea to sit them into the cupboard.
The other package I received today I’ll try to post soon too :)
This weekend I splurged on some new cosmetics. Karme got me obsessed with a Dior lip gloss by the name of “No Angel.” I tried it on at Nordstrom’s and really loved it. It’s mostly clear with a hint of pale pink sheen and tons of sparkle. Mike said it added a healthy summer look so I got it. While checking out though I spotted the new YSL Rose Baby Doll nail color.
Last week I was moaning I needed a new shade of red. Just something warmer! AND THERE IT WAS. This is my first YSL polish. I quickly slapped it on today and like the formula and flat brush. It goes on in 1 coat a dries decently enough. Not quickly but quick enough that it’s not an issue for my usual nail routine.
The color is SO hard to capture in a pic but it’s so perfect. I mean seriously I feel connected to this shade on a spiritual level I looooooove it. It’s a warm coral red but not too pink but not too rich in red. I think “ruby red grapefruit” when I look at it.
Very happy :)
