i’ve said it before, and i’ll say it again…
“The ‘mani ring’ – a ring worn on your nail – is the latest lacquer trend to take the beauty and fashion world by storm. Stylists can’t get enough of the kooky design that’s a cross between a ring and a false nail and Instagram is plastered with snaps of the decorations. Even fashion-savvy Beyonce was spotted donning the bling in one of her music videos.”
bijules made this happen in 2006 or 2007 [click click!]
i’ll give credit, where credit is due… hmmph. :double snap: ♥ kim ♥

so this time, last year (literally, the 19th), i posted about sanrio x steven shein. he makes FUN/uhhhhhmazeballs acrylic and wooden and mirrored jewelry. so this year, i am trying (again) to get all of my christmas shopping done BEFORE the 20th of december, so i’m not scrambling for last minute gifts.
one of my bff’s (jes of toughlovenyc) shares an enormous affection for hello kitty and sanrio with me, so whenever i shop for her (today is her birthday), that’s pretty much what i go for. it also gives me an excuse to buy dumb little hello kitty things for myself (as if i ever stop myself anyhow).
i got a $10 gift cert. from fredflare and decided to go gift huntin’ on the FF site! as soon as i hit the accessories section, i came across this ring, and it SCREAMS jes. she loves two finger rings AND hello kitty, so how could i not? then i realized it said pre-order it, and that it’d ship on christmas eve. like, HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOO, that isn’t gonna work. so the next step: etsy. i knew someone would have some cute ass hello kitty rings, so i figured i’d look specifically for the bow and found these.
i think i’m about to sound like a total hypocrite, because i know i’m always complaining about knockoffs, but on this front, i’m just gonna put this selective reasoning out there:
hello kitty (her head/face/bow/along with the other sanrio characters) is produced in mass quantities by SOOOOOO many companies (for decades). HK stuff isn’t all that unique vs. independent designers that actually have something totally one of a kind.
i think that this type of a thing could get a copy-cunt free pass. although, this ring in particular does look a shit-ton like steven shein’s stuff, especially with the wood look (which kind of irks me)… BUT it’s just a hello kitty bow, and i think whoever makes one – it’d always be the same shape/design… so i’ll let it slide and link to it.

soooooooooo, i never want to grow up… if you know me in real life, you already know that i avoid most adulthood things like the plague, so it’s weird for me thinking about future stuffs (marriage, kids, etc.). i guess turning thirty last year, i guess it’s kind of a wake up call. like, HELLO, idiot, you only have a decade left to get married/have kids so that you’re not a super old weirdo mom. additionally, i’ll prob never live to see my 50th anniversary with my future husband, lol.
i still feel like i’m 21, i still basically look like i’m 21… i don’t know when the feeling is going to officially kick in.

maybe it’s wrong of me to instantly get defensive and pissed when i discover people selling shit that EERILY resembles other peoples creations… but sometimes it’s just so fucking frustrating because of how obvious it seems (is). i have NEVER found copying off of other people “flattering”, and it infuriates me especially when i see my favorite designers being ripped off.
in this posts case, we have two of my favorite jewelry designers that have been totally (seemingly) jocked.

aside from instagramming and working all the time, i’ve been doing the following for fun, and to maintain my own sanity…
1. keeping up with them diagonails
2. making a bunch of friendship bracelets and chinese staircase earrings! (while watching TV, usually… never have extra time for anything fun)
i’m actually going to start selling those earrings, i bought some hoops. if you’re interested, HOLLER.
3. playing lots of scrabble with my boyfriend on my iphone.
4. hello, it’s hockey season…
5. watching lots of netflix. i finished up breaking bad, brothers & sisters and gossip girl 🙁 i need a new show! suggestions???
6. hanging with my boyfrannn michael<333 we had his sisters wedding, my sisters birthday, christmas with our families, new years eve (obv) and his cousins sweet 16 in addition to some other stuff that i had to attend… it just felt like all of december was so dang busy…
other than all of that, when it gets cold out, my social life usually just shuts down. i hate being outside in the cold! although, i did recently get to hang out with the amazeballs online friend chris for his birthday last week. i met him on le twitter a couple of years ago… FINALLY made it out while he was in NYC (he’s connecticut based), lower east sided it! got saucy, hung out with his stuntman cousin, had pancakes at like 4AM… we had a blast 🙂
hmm, i guess that’s it really. just trying to craft more. i should start working on the site for the jewelry, while i’m feeling this graphic design creative…
