a fox pillow with a fox hidey-hole.

i repeat, a fox hidey-hole...

NailSnaps: Turn your photos into nail art

David Bowie Star Trek NailSnaps manicure

kittens, have you ever fantisized about turning your instagram photos into nail art?

yes, you say? me, too!

thanks to a super faboo app called NailSnaps (which is currently raising funds on kickstarter), you can decorate your digits with your favorite photos -- vacation pics, celebrity sightings, sleeping cats, technicolor sunsets -- the possibilities are endless!

the groovy app allows you to create a customizable design which spans across your nails (from your index to your pinky) to make a complete picture like a skyline. or you can target portions of your photo and assign the selected image to specific nails.

simply upload your photo, design your manicure layout, and NailSnaps will print your custom design onto nail polish stickers and ship them to you.

the nail polish stickers are easy to apply with zero drying time. woohoo!

i did some fantasy NailSnaps manicure mock-ups using photos from my instagram feed. check 'em out!

i even hand modeled for your visual pleasure...

okay, now it's your turn to play with your photo manicure!

to get the ball rolling, simply support NailSnaps' kickstarter so they can build the magical app. donate $20 (or more!). it's all good. let's make this puppy happen!

fun fact -- angel anderson, the creator to NailSnaps, is one of my best friends in the world. she's brilliant, creative, innovative, and an overall fabulous gal. however, i'm not just giving this project good lovin' because i love angel, but because i think it's one of the best ideas around.

i'm excited to see everyone's inspired and groovy nail art. let's help make this world a little prettier one fingernail at a time.

chime time

Ladies and gentlemen studio aura chimes anthropologie

ahh, the wind chime. i was lovingly raised by hippies, which meant it was wind-chimes-a-go-go in our zen-like homestead.

chimes rang throughout our garden, on the back porch, and from the trees. they were the soundtrack of my childhood.

admittedly, as an adult, i have forgone wind chimes in our home. however, ladies and gentlemen studio makes these gorgeous, mid-century styled chimes which incorporate various shapes, textures, metals, and glazes, and i must admit -- i like 'em!

i may be forced to unleashing my inner hippie and purchase one of these, kittens.

cue the incense.
