Tea Break

As I flip through this months pages of InStyle (guilty pleasure), I realize that I have a crush on Gwen Stefani! She's fabulous! I have a thing for rock stars and the like. OK, there you have it. She's my lady crush. I think Yed's man crush might be Clooney? I'll confirm...

My vice

Anthony Nak Finito!

Anthony Camargo and Nak Armstrong are the Austin-based designers behind Anthony Nak fine jewelry. I love the craftsmanship in their fluid designs of metal and gems. Their signature technique is encasing gems in cages of gold chains. They are shutting down and parting ways professionally. Nak Armstrong is launching his self named jewelry line this year. The images above link to their site that is currently offering their jewels at 50-70% off until their gone... Gone for good.
