20 Second Solution @ReStringIt

Gadgets are awesome!  I got the Restring It package last week and put it to the test. Lucky for me, I had a pair of sweatpants that always loses the drawstring in the wash.

This tool has and end to grab the string and a long flexible body and then another long needle at the other end. Works like  a charm is and is the newest member of my laundry room staples!

It is being called “the best thing since the dawn of the safety pin.” Re-String It solves drawstring woes in seconds. It is available for under $15 online on their website, Amazon, in over 360 “Play It Again Sports” stores, and now QVC just picked it up for their Sprout Campaign in September.  It was recently featured on a television newscast in the Carolinas in a segment called “Why Didn’t I Think of That!”

Event LOVE: @nikiandlola pop-up shop

“Boy meets girl. They get married, and have kids. She designs jewellery, and he makes it. That is where the story begins.”

Yesterday I went over to Sweet Woodruff flower shop to celebrate the launch of Niki & Lola’s “early nomad” capsule collection. I first saw a Niki & Lola piece on Angie a few months ago, and pretty much lost my marbles, so when I got the invite to the Niki & Lola pop-up shop event, there was just NO WAY that I was going to miss it. I loved every single piece in the collection. I love the simplicity, the attention to detail, I especially love how all the pieces have this strength to them, while being delicate at the same time. My faves were the shield ring, the kingdom necklace, and there was this crazy cuff  (I can’t remember what it was called but I LOVED it… I think it was called the Polygonia cuff).

This cuff WILL be mine one day. Love. Love. Love.

The shield rings!

@Glitterlimes from @NYIGF 2012

Glitter Limes was one of the vendors in the Handmade section of this year’s New York International Gift Fair. The cutest part about these accessories is that they are handmade by designer Debbie Tuch in Brooklyn.  She has been crafting these pieces since 1996!

I love these, they are so cute and a perfect conversational piece with any outfit!

Rock Candy Earring in Topaz for $45 is definitely perfect for the sea foam color trend!

Know a veggie and fruit lover?  How about these necklaces fore them! Delicious 🙂
