YAY! Today I am having a dreamy Colenimo giveaway! My friend, Aya, makes these beautiful clothes from her studio in London. She has been one of my favorite designers since I first laid eyes on her stunning collections nearly 5 years ago. She’s definitely a kindred spirit with a love for classic tailoring, special details, wonderful textiles, the glamour of yesteryear and strong women in history. Her new spring collection is lovely and there are still some beauties from past seasons available. One lucky winner gets to pick one in-stock garment of their choice from the Colenimo shop! More HERE. GOOD LUCK, EVERYONE! ♥

Seeing the Art in the Age post about floral ice cubes in one of their lovely Rhubarb Tea cocktail recipes made me so excited about sunny days ahead. In the warmer months, I love to make pitchers of strange summer beverages like apple cider vinegar, lemonade, lavender and spearmint cold brew tea with ice cubes with berries. I love the idea of using edible flowers — they look so pretty in the cubes, but I think they’d be wonderful in spheres as well, like these round ice molds or these. If you need a list of nice, edible fleurs — I was just thinking about the lovely edible flowers post that Ashley English did for Design Sponge a few years back. You can also use berries, melons, lavender and other herbs!

I’ve been loving everything in the The Rising States shop lately! Everything is so beautifully and simply styled — each piece really shines. My current favorites are the blush Moonrise Jumpsuit (and ALL the Samantha Pleet pieces, really), the petal pink Chase Fete silk skirt, the stunning Diderot Dress, the black Cat Dress, the Jigsaw Shorts and Sweater, the Katie Bags and Anni Mini Bag and Leah Ball’s Binary Hoops. I can’t wait to visit Meagan Delaney’s Ludlow Street brick and mortar next time I’m in New York! More HERE.
