Inés Figaredo

Earlier this year, while in New York, Erica and I had the pleasure of running into the mastermind behind these unique and eccentric handbags. Inés Figaredo, a former lawyer turned designer, aims to explore bags as an art form. And man, is she on point! Each piece is conceptualized using nature and the imagination as inspiration and they are then handmade in Spain with the finest leather and materials such as 18k gold plated fittings. Check out the video below and follow along as Inés’ Big Girl Face Bag is being made.

Sweet As A Mural

Believe it or not, these historical mural reproductions are made up solely of sugar. Edible blue paint, white sugar tiles, frosting and icing are the only materials that Montreal-based artist Shelley Miller uses to create her pieces. Referencing the sugar industry’s long and significant history, her azulejo style murals are installed in several ports including Montreal and Salvador, Brazil. Of course, Shelley’s creations hardly last forever as the environment’s natural elements will slowly take it’s toll on these sweet works of art.


Antelope Canyon

It’s hard to believe that a place this glorious and majestic exists . . . and that I have yet to visit it. Antelope Canyon, located in Arizona, was formed by centuries of erosion due to rainfall and flash flooding. The result is a series of deep, narrow passageways surrounded by smooth, wave-like Navajo sandstone walls. Have you been lucky enough to have experienced the splendor of Antelope Canyon in person?
