2. This Medici family necklace

Saw this on an article published on 2013 that featured Mellerio dits Meller jewellery house for the 400th year in business. They’ve been serving (mostly the European nobles/ royalty) since 1613, very impressive.

3. Post Mortem photogrpahy

FE1

Like I said the segment is called “around the web” Huffington Post and several other blogs (drawing a blank) posted an article last year (and I’ve been looking ever since) about how in the Victoria era getting oneself or family photograph is a once in a lifetime thing. They were being literal, one tradition is a memento mori, While photography was lesser in cost than the painted portrait it was still quite pricey. For most families they would hire a photographer to take photos of their newly deceased loved ones as a keepsake.

4. This photo taken in North Korea

FE1

The recent month’s hacking of Sony Exec’s e-mail made me curious about North Korea, I do not know anything about them besides the facts that they live in their own world. So I started reading up on North Korean facts and oh man I am glad I don’t live in North Korea in my mind, I already broke most of the laws they enforce there.

7. This amazing library

FE1

The Admont Abbey in Austria Even at this digital age, I still long to have my own private library, it will be my ultimate woman. Nothing beats the smell of both old and new books and to have that physical copy, the act of flipping the pages… yeah I am one of those.

8. A news articles about Coach buying Stuart Weitzman, NO!!!

FE1

I respect Coach as a company but not a fan of their designs, I am afraid that they’ll change the Stuart Weitzman designs and mirror it like their own.

April and May Shopping Haul

The last week of April and May were an extremely busy and stressful week for me. Work had been kicking my butt, we had a huge project that we worked on and on June 9th, we’ll finally hear if all my hard work is going to pay off. School has been crazy as well. I have to drop a subject to lessen the stress. I am not happy about that nor it made me feel better but it has to be done. The home front is also pretty stressful as well but the family’s relationship is intact its the other stuff that we have a problem with a.k.a bills. LOL So thank goodness for little happiness and retail therapy (bargain hunting) in life, those stressors got lessened a little bit.

This is a birthday gift I bought for myself. This ultra cute, budget friendly, designer inspired Playing Cards clutch was customized especially for me. I got a great deal for it too. One of our factory at work didn’t even charge me a mold fee for this. One of the perks in working as a purchaser. Love it.
