Thank You!

November 21, 2012

i can't believe we are approaching the end of november and the year is approaching an end. this year i have so many things to be thankful for - i've made some big changes in my life and wouldn't have been able to do so without the incredible support from my friends, family and the amazing internet/blogging/creative community. i constantly remind myself how blessed i am. to all of my readers and followers, thank you and have a wonderful thanksgiving!

Lets Shop Together!

November 19, 2012

today i'd like to share with you a new site i've been using called luvocracy. it's a new social shopping platform unlike anything out there – in a way it's sort of like pinterest meets amazon. as a member of luvocracy you get the chance to curate your own online shop with virtually anything available on the web by "luving" or recommending the product. you can share your shop with your friends, family, anyone – and perhaps one of the most exciting things about luvocracy is that when someone makes a purchase from your shop you get rewarded with cash! (read more on their faq page)

luvocracy just launched a few weeks ago so still in the early stages but if you want to hop on board you can click here to receive an invitation from me or send me an email and i can get you signed on.

i am loving the hand lettering and beautiful stamps designed by cathie hong of ampersandity. she recently launched her new site with so many delightful things i want them all! i can see myself using this handmade with love stamp for some special edible gifts and this custom address label for all my holiday cards.

cathie has kindly offered you all a special 20% discount off your purchase until november 30th. just enter JCHONG20 at the check out (good for both us and international residence!) – i think these would make some awesome stocking stuffers too!

Monomatopee

November 07, 2012


i had such a great time traveling and can't wait to share some of the pictures from my trip. there were so many things i wanted to buy and bring home but resisted so i wanted to share some of the cool things i saw. these monomatopee bags are so neat, they looked hard but they were actually super soft and so modular. you can fold them every way and they become really compact. they even have a line of origami inspired inflatable scarfs too!

i haven't been able to find a us retailer for these but will update if i do.

Local 1205

November 01, 2012



a few weeks ago while wandering abbot kinney before a meeting i stumbled into local 1205. i loved the vibe of this market/cafe. they had fresh produce and pantry goods to fresh sandwiches and pressed juices. i didn't have a chance to grab anything to eat there but i look forward to going back and trying sometime!
