Iceland has been on my top five trip list for way too long. Travel photographer Jerome Berbigier took this gorgeous shot – his work is amazing.
Meet Brúarfoss, a natural wonder more commonly known as the ‘Turquoise River’. Brúarfoss translates to ‘Bridge Waterfall’ and its name is derived from a natural stone arch that crossed over the Brúará river many moons ago. The river turns into a small waterfall, full of cascading bright blue glacial waters. Wow.
And yes. The dark side of the moon really is turquoise.
Quartz released a study today about shorelines and social patterns. Aerial images of New York beaches depict chaos and spontaneity, while Miami beaches are coordinated with punches of bright color. I think it speaks volumes about the lifestyle and culture (and awesomeness) in both cities!
Fashion inspired by art, art inspired by nature. Whichever way it goes, it’s great. I guess you could say that my obsession with Taffin has reached another level. James Claude Taffin de Givenchy is a French born, New York-based jewelry designer and a descendant of the Givenchy fashion house. His jewelry company, Taffin, blows my mind. Each piece he designs is usually one of a kind and many of them are auctioned off. Taffin is currently the creative director for Sotheby’s. I love this guy. Pictured below is his stunning ceramic tree brooch with pear shaped diamonds.
I cannot get over how ridiculously talented people are, how they envision something so beautiful in their mind and manage to create it seamlessly with their hands. The striking resemblance of the Taffin tree to Georgia O’Keeffe’s painting below is amazing. Maybe they’ve both taken trips to Lake George? ;)

I’ve seen this piece a number of times and while I personally wouldn’t wear it, I think it’s so beautiful. Jean Schlumberger’s clip of colorful gems is pierced by 18k gold arrows. The amethyst (center) is surrounded by small amethysts,, Montana sapphires and round brilliant diamonds.
The albino peacock. My love for albino animals abounds. (Note: best albino animal I’ve seen in person? Bright white reindeer in Norway!)
Bulgarian photographer and artist Juliana Nan is a virtuoso.
