Before you ask, no, sandwich bags are not a good way to store your valuables. They can get lost easily and are not protective, especially if you plan on organizing jewelry or expensive makeup. Their tendency to break and tear is also concerning. Travelling is another monster all together. Using clear bags is like inviting someone to snoop, or worse, steal. Travel safely and organize in style with these beautiful hand embroidered cosmetic bags. They come in a set of three and are made in convenient sizes. The small is perfect to store cosmetics or medication in your purse or work bag. The medium would work for art and sewing supplies, and the large could even double for a cute and unique clutch. They are perfect to use to store stationary in your home as well. The embroidery is based on cherry blossoms and is painstakingly done by hand. They have character and charm that no machine could possibly emulate. Their semicircle shape is so cute and unique. The colors are vibrant and absolutely gorgeous. The purple is rich, the yellow is bright, and the blue is deep. They are made of durable cotton with polyester lining, so your bags could last years! Handmade with love by Sadia Anwar
Anyone who works with their hands or gets a little dirty need an apron. Some even require them. These can be anyone from artists, butchers, chefs, blacksmiths, woodworkers, welders, chemists, gardeners, and the list goes on and on. Aprons are more important than may people give them credit for. Fabric aprons get dingy and dirty easily and eventually need to be replaced. They also do not provide adequate protection in case you're working with somewhat dangerous materials, like power tools. They are also extremely flammable and could cause extreme bodily harm, especially because they are not the easiest to remove. If these concern you or anyone around you, you might want to consider looking into leather aprons. Leather aprons are beautiful, durable, and can last you a lifetime if taken care of. Unlike fabric, they do not catch fire and cannot be punctured without putting up a fight. Lifetime Leather Co on Etsy offers a beautiful authentic full grain leather apron that is perfect for everyday use. Their products are handmade in Arizona, USA in their San Tan Valley workshop. Their sizes are inclusive and they come in three beautiful colors. If you own a small business, you can add a logo and up to 12 letters. They come with three sturdy pockets in the front, perfect for tools, paintbrushes, and grilling utensils. These would make awesome gifts for your art lover or hard worker!
Many brides dream of their big day in a beautiful white gown with a grand reception surrounded by their friends and family. Not many, however, dream of having it in a colored dress. Up until recently, wearing a colored dress was considered taboo. The white dress was associated with purity, and not wearing one meant you were impure. This trend was pretty much set since 1840 when Queen Victoria married Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha in a then unusual white satin gown. Before that it was customary to wear a colored ensemble. She changed the face of wedding fashion drastically, and until recently, white was the only color available for weddings. Luckily, these values have shifted, and now brides are free to wear whatever they want to their weddings, especially tuxedos and colored wedding dresses. While vibrant colors, like neons and especially dark colors, have yet to be widely accepted, pastels are on trend. Baby pinks and nudes are especially popular and unique, but why not take it up a notch by walking down the aisle in a gorgeous dusty blue and ivory A-line dress. You'll look like a dream in this lace and tulle beauty. It is made from scratch by Lace Bridal and fitted just for you. This is wonderful for those who have an especially hard time finding clothes that fit them in department stores. In 6-8 weeks you could have your custom dress for an unbeatable price. Wedding dresses can easily go for over $1,000 without alterations in stores. At under $400, this dress is a steal!
Most of you might recognize this sculpture from the background of APES**T by THE CARTERS, but art historians know it as the Winged Victory of Samothrace, which, since its discovery in 1863, has been housed in the Musee du Louvre in Paris and considered one of its greatest and most valuable treasures. It was sculpted between 220 and 185 BC and is considered to be one of the most important works of art from the Hellenistic period. It depicts the goddess Nike, and although she is missing her arms and head, it is believed she is delivering the shout of Victory, one hand raised above her head and the other cupping her mouth. Sculptured Arts Studio create beautiful genuine white marble replicas of famous sculptures. Their Winged Victory is an exact replica of the one you see adorning the Daru staircase of the Louvre. Every mark, chip, restoration, and sign of age has been masterfully replicated, giving it its character and mystery that makes it so beautiful. They manage to capture all the beauty and detail of the 5.57 m statue and compact it into a 43 centimeter composition. They successfully kept the structure and movement of the original, giving you an engaging piece that would look beautiful adorning any surface of your home or office. It would make the perfect gift for history buffs and Beyoncé fans alike.
