What Are You Doing New Years Eve?

Whether you do it up with LBD (little black dress) or you glam rock in your favorite jeans, I think these are a NYE must have:

They are also available with purple as the secondary colour, a mix of the two colours, as well as other suede or leathery options. Gold baby. That is where its at.

Where in the World??

I love to travel. My favorite travel memories and experiences always happen when I forget about agendas or let go of my map and get lost in an area that feels like me. If I am lucky I find a store like mine that offers handmade goods made in the region and more often than not I leave with a goody or two. But with two young ones and a baby biz, I haven’t traveled in awhile. Instead, I travel vicariously through friends’ photographs on Facebook.

The other day I received a package from not-so-far Ottawa from Urbanite Jewellery. When I opened the package, I was taken on an international journey. And the box of treasures was like a visual, wearable, jewellery souvenir shop from all the stops on this journey.

Urbanite Jewellery’s creator, Krista Leben, creates jewellery stylistically reminiscent of a place and then she packages them on cards labeled with their namesake. There are lacey, leafy “Manilla” earrings, branch and blossom “Victoria” earrings & necklace, and a spherical icey snowball “Banff” necklace. I am mad for the simple modern arty “Chicago” earrings (shown directly below) and the floral “Seville” earrings (bottom image), reminiscent of the amazing floral gardens and moorish “cutout” architectural decor.

All the Urbanite pieces are light in weight and pocket (read: affordable). If travel is in your heart but not in your agenda right now, a little piece of Bejing, Casablanca, or Aspen can be yours in the form of some pretty treasures. (What a great justification on buying yourself a treat! You just saved yourself a plane ticket and lodging money sweetheart!)

New In the Shop: Fleet Objects Braid Jewellery

I wouldn’t classify this store as trendy. But it is funny how trends make the rounds from runway and magazines to product designers and artisan handmade culture to mainstream and back again. Braids have been seen everywhere lately from hair trends to accessories. And I admit, I am really enjoying the braid resurgence. So I was super excited to receive a recent box of goodies from Fleet Objects.

The braid jewellery collection is drool worthy for sure. I love the simple elegance of the leather braid necklaces & rings and the chunky layering (another trend) of the bracelets. Artisan Zoe (of Fleet Objects) crafted a beautiful line of bohemian casual meets refinery that can be both multi-season and with a variety  of outfits.

Love, Me is excited to have a limited collection of Fleet Object braid jewellery collection.
