unique chic • colored diamonds

i am a huge fan of the unexpected, the original, the uniquely chic. and one of the most unique things i've discovered recently is a new trend towards unusual engagement or wedding rings.


sapphires, rose gold, canary diamonds. there will always be something timeless about a perfectly cut clear diamond, but there is also something exciting — and highly personal — about the inclusion of color. these colored diamond rings available at icestore.com are some of my favorites.

which one appeals most to you?

type style obsessions • penabico

i love pretty things. especially when those pretty things meet paper, color and fabulous accents.


of course, all pretty stationery elements are incomplete without an equally gorgeous type style, which can transcend a smart design into something truly spectacular — and my very favorite new font is penabico.

it's vintage and full of flourish, but also quite whimsical. it would be perfect paired with a modern block font, or filling up an entire card with its luscious lines. it's fonts like this that make me love printed calligraphy.

in love also? you can get this from myfonts.com and make your own pretty things. be sure to share them with me!

sometimes, you don't need words. sometimes, simple beauty speaks all on its own.
