Win a Phuze Ring!

I recently met the Canadian rep for an interesting line of one of a kind crystal blown jewellery, called Phuze, from designer Orfeo Quagliata who is based out of Mexico City. The rep from UniqArte offered me a ring as a gift (shown above, as well as on Bright Eye Initiative), but I thought I would share my wealth with you all and offer it up to the first person to answer this question correctly.....
What temperature is crystal blown at?

Phuze can be bought under the line UniqArte at

Seeing Lines

This summer I cannot get enough of the nautical striped trend that is everywhere. This trend is one that has resurfaced itself time and time again for decades, and never fails to look endlessly chic. Just about every celebrity from years past and current have worn this look.

That's why I just about died when I saw this gorgeous belted linen jacket (below). Stripes galore and screaming to be worn with some killer heels and some outrageous red lips.

You can find this delish little number on for $320.00. A savvy investment considering that this is one look/trend that never goes out of style.

What do you think?

On thing that has been a huge trend this summer is cateye shaped sunglasses. They are everywhere - both on the runways, on celebrities, and definitely now in the mass public.

Not always a favorite of mine, I have to admit, it took some time to warm up to them. However, I must say - I love them now! They come in so many shapes, sizes, and colours - and also at many different price points!

I stumbled upon this pair of cateye glasses on and adore them! Love the pop of pink for the summertime (though they are also available in blue) - and are at a fabulous price of $36.00.

What do you think of this trend? Do you like the glasses?
