Wearing: Make War

Fall always puts me in the biggest Bright Eyes mood.. that and Cursive have been on repeat for the past 2 weeks. Something about the chilly weather and those singers that just go hand-in-hand.

I received this beautiful floral crown as a gift from fellow Ontarian (wow, that is actually a word) Jordan de Ruiter ! It has been my most treasured accessory since I pulled it out of the box it arrived in. The colours are the loveliest shades of burgundy, beige, white and then an almost-white mint. It is perfect for the transition of summer to fall, and this way I can have a little bit of summer with me all winter ! Make sure to check out her shop, which is full of other handmade wonders (I'm already eyeing the "'Til I Fell in Love with You' Daisy Crown"). I should also mention how durable this crown is, seeing as it survived a puppy attack (Maggie's so lucky she's adorable) and remained completely intact, haha.

School has been consuming my life, but in an awesome kind of way ! For the first time, I feel like I am finally on the right track for doing something that I could enjoy for the rest of my days. Art has been my passion since I was a kid, so I wish I had clued in sooner that it would be worth-while to look into a career in an artistic field.. oh well, you live and learn. I have to get some sleep, though.. Early morning typography class ! x

Little Moo wanted to be in the picture, once again.

Quickly before I go, enjoy a video of a sneak peak at Jordan de Ruiter's SS2013 collection !
