EsQuisite Designs: New Ombre Heart

I own two etsy stores and one of them (EsQuisite Designs) makes wine cork hearts, letters, veils, etc.  The Ombre Heart is a new design that I came up with a while back and it has been FLYING off the shelves! =)

The creative process ;P~ Wine is always a necessity.

Statement Earrings

In my early 20s, I was ALL ABOUT the loud, flashy earrings.  I mean the bigger and more obnoxious the better.  I liked my hair big, makeup bright, and earrings the size of saucers.  As a late 20s (almost 30) gal, I’ve started to wear more flashy studs.  I dress up casual outfits for work with statement studs or pair a LBD with big earrings.  I’ve found that fancy studs are WAY more versatile.  Plus, since they’re not as obvious, you can wear them more often that flashy dangling earrings.

Here are three I ordered from Piperlime.  Unfortunately, I only liked the Sabine earrings.  The others just weren’t as cute in person as they were online.  Or at least they didn’t look good on me.  The Banana Earrings were TOO unique, which meant that I couldn’t get a lot of wear out of them, and the Tinley Road earrings were gorgeous but a little too mature for me.

H&M and Love Culture Buys

I did a little shopping for my birthday (bought by Markel of course).  Here are a few of my favorite finds (will post more later):

From H&M, I bought a lace black shirt and a yellow dress for $5 each!

From Love Culture, I bought these adorable lace shorts!  I’ve worn them twice already and I’m in LOVE ❤

EsQuisite Designs on Etsy

I started the EsQuisite Designs etsy shop about a year ago (my second shop) and it’s been quite a difference!  The items are larger and easier to make and I like that I get to do some of them with Markel.

These wine cork projects below have been our pet project/collaboration in recent months and it’s really been a blast!    We have been working together to collect the corks, create the letters, and make a gorgeous layout.    Markel is really the mastermind behind these and I’m nothing but a “gluer”.  lol   We’ve been getting feedback on the items that customers have received and it’s seriously been such a high!  They’ve loved the letters and the designs and have used it for their weddings and homes.

All the rad comments/notes have been so amazing!  I swear it brings us closer together as a couple and makes me excited to think that we have a lifetime ahead of collaboration~ if these little things can be so rewarding, can you imagine what bigger things are in store?

And a plus side???  I get to drink all the wine I want without judgement.  LOL  I mean…It’s a business expense right?  haha

Happy Monday Ya’ll!  If you have any thoughts about the letters, I’d love to hear from you!
