Desert Day 1

Hi everyone! Oops I've been a little lax on the blogging! Summertime always seems to get in the way of any additional screen time! Today I am hobbled by a foot injury and basically bound to a reclined position so what better time to catch up on a little blogging! I have been meaning to post the photos from the Rome leg of my Italy trip from last year, but A) somehow those photos will not load each time I try and B) It seems so long ago! I'll figure it out one of these days.

In the meantime here are some pics from my trip to Palm Springs and Palm Desert this Spring. 
My friends K and A asked me to join them on their trip and I jumped on it immediately. It was late-Winter and I was in the middle of the semi-annual One of a Kind Show craze, so I went without knowing a thing about the area or what we would be doing on this trip. Sometimes I think knowing nothing is the best way to visit a place.
K and I have known each other since the 8th grade but we have never taken a trip together so this was a nice treat.
As soon as I arrived, I got a chance to check out the Parker Palm Springs. If you know me, you know I love a good vintage find, mid-century modern style and loads of colour, so this place was just my kind of scene.
I mean, look at this giant owl macramé hanging!
I felt right at home.
Coming from a lingering Toronto Winter, it was so invigorating to feel the warm California sun and catch sight and scent of vibrant flowers.
 Got us some delicious cocktails and tacos at poolside immediately!
 Helps to have a grown up version of a lemonade stand!

 I need one of these swinging wicker chairs at home.
Within moments of arriving in Palm Springs, I knew I would enjoy this trip! Every corner was picturesque and chilled out and it was just what I needed! More photos are to come from the rest of our trip. Off to bed to rest my foot for the night and catch some quality zzz's.

Bracelet of Hope Silent Auction


This is a special piece that was made for Bracelet of Hope, an organization aiming to help end the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Lesotho. Bracelet of Hope sent me a selection of these colourful wooden and fabric beads. They are handmade by HIV+ women in Lesotho. I had fun playing around with them and creating this piece with a signature MoonRox twist. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and hope that it will be well received.

It will be available for you to bid on at their silent auction tomorrow at the Women to Women event at Apartment 58 in Guelph, Ontario.

Have a lovely weekend friends!

Spring blossoms

I had am amazing getaway to the desert. Snuck away with some friends and had the greatest time. I went with no preconceived notions of the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area other than the fact that my sister enjoyed her visit many years back. As soon as I arrived I fell in love with the architecture, the kitschiness and the beautiful and varied terrain of the region. I'll have to share some of my many many photos soon. This reminds me that I never did finish up my Italy posts from last year. I still need to post the Rome photos. I'll catch up one of these days!

In the meantime, I got back to Toronto just in time to catch all the spring blossoms pop up around town. I love this time of year in Toronto. Everything is fresh and the brightest green and all the flowers are emerging. Here are some snap shots from outside Robarts Library at U of T. Yes, I was a little over zealous and took a few too many photos! They were just so perfect! Like pink fluffy cotton candy pom poms in the sky!

I'm feeling excited for warmer temps and super refreshed and inspired from my little getaway. My brain feels like it's working better too!

Hope you have a great week!
