Grow your own alternative home decor

_MG_6674Recently I have been looking at crystals intently, mostly for the home. I started getting crystals bracelets after learning their aid in spiritual growth. I am intrigued and wanted to find out more though I haven’t been taking good care of my existing wearable crystals. Certain crystals need more attention than others. Of late I read that clear quartz is considered neutral and do not pick up any negative force around them so you need not rinse with running mineral water or let it out in soft sunlight. And Quartz with different formations have different purposes for the owner. I do believe the utmost important thing is to look after them well and they will do the same to you for whichever crystals/stones you are looking after.
Today, I am sharing with you Tyler Thrasher’s works. Thanks to my dear friend, a crystal enthusiast who sent me his website few days ago. And I thought it was mind blowing. Never did it occur to me that you can grow crystals at home, definitely not before our recent crystal shopping trip together! Growing natural minerals, how cool is that. Then it got me thinking, would the crystals harvester’s aura be collected and bind to these “lab-grown” crystals. Some of these works are available for purchase. Click here for more information.

Byredo & Diptyque Paris

uncategorized
Covetable personal fragrances I’ve acquired few months ago are fast becoming my latest interest and obsession for scents. They have been introduced to me by a friend who is into artisanal unique scents. I’ve always use fashion houses’ fragrances which is rather common especially when the launch is recent you probably smell it on almost every other lady on the streets. Though perfume at the end of the day reacts differently from user to user. Still, I am hoping to find that unique scent I would like to call my own. Roses has to be my all-time fave, followed by Irises. And now I have a new addition, tobacco. And I feel I am probably gonna be adding more and more to my collection of personal fragrances from these two brands. What’s your favourite scent? Do share what other artisanal perfumers are out in the market. I would love to learn more. On a side note, here’s a link to read about Byredo’s latest fragrance, Byredo Unnamed fragrance.

It’s been a long 4 months since I last updated my blog. Here’s a brand I came upon or rather it found me via my instagram account, @theminiloft. So I went to check out their profile and I am loving what I see. Here’s Oliver & Lukas Weisskrogh‘s interesting take on sofa beds.
