Flower Food for the weekend … and a preview!


The last couple of days I have been working on shooting images of a new series Bloesem Wear handmade jewelry … yes hopefully next week I am able to open the Bloesem Wear shop again this time the 2013 collection.

I thought using  little edible flowers would be a perfect styling idea … they are so sweet, fragile and delicate just as I want my new necklaces to be … 

And although I am a bit nervous … I'm already going to show you one picture of one of the designs from this limited new series Bloesem Wear,

Like I said hopefully a couple of more days and I am ready to open the shop… but in the meantime I would love to hear your response get some feedback from you whether you like this style! xoxo irene



 – Soon the Bloesem Wear shop will be open again –

Yves Behar’s August Smart Lock: Keyless Entry for Anyone with a Smartphone


My main question: Why is the inside of your apartment so dark?

Yesterday Yves Behar and tech entrepreneur Jason Johnson pulled the sheets off of their August Smart Lock. It’s an intelligent keyless entry system, operated via Bluetooth, that can be retrofitted to an existing door with just two screws.


There are two killer apps for the system: One is that you no longer need to use your key to get in. August detects when your smartphone is in proximity, then open-sesames. Two is that you can program August to let other people in—houseguests, dogwalkers, repairpersons, that ex that talks a good game and swears it will be different this time around—and it will recognize their smartphone, allowing access at a time of your choosing.



Daily Obsesh: Tribal Print

imageTribal print is a really cool trend right now. It’s a great way to make any outfit pop. Prints are personal so make sure you pick out the right look that caters to your taste. We are loving this tribal print blazer here. These colors are warm and fun. This jacket would look great paired with black skinnies and pumps. Make sure not to combine any other loud prints when you’re sporting a key piece like this one.
