Bloomin' Brilliant is a hand crafted jewellery line by Toronto based designer Rhea Jacinto. She specializes in brass and combines raw crystals, fur, natural stones, and geometric silhouettes to achieve her unique aesthetic. Her vintage inspired pieces have a modern twist which makes them special and exciting. You know how I love a good juxtaposition! That is exactly what you get with this line. The Eva necklace for example, combines soft, draped silhouettes and geometric details in a way that really works.

I'm wearing the Vesper necklace which features raw rose tone quartz, cascading onyx talons, and geometric brass chain link. This piece is step away from the big 90s inspired gold chains you usually see me in, and has rekindled my love affair with raw crystal!

Sergio and I were invited by the lovely team at Seventh Heaven to help celebrate the Grand Opening of their very first pop-up shop which is located at The Promenade Mall in Thornhill, Ontario. They did an amazing job of bringing the online store to life and they chose a retail space that fit their aesthetic perfectly!

Lush, why so intimidated?

By now I'm pretty sure everyone in the world knows about Lush, so in no way do I think we're breaking big news on Regal Rubbish about how great their products are! What I do know, is that most men avoid Lush like the plague. Is it the scents or the large crowds of women taking over the store? It could just be a mix of both. I used to be one of those guys that hated having to walk into Lush with family or friends that had to "quickly pick something up." Eventually someone actually convinced me to try out their products, and ever since I've been hooked!

When it comes to taking care of my skin, I fall into the category of guys that just don't have time for that. Most nights I just splash a little bit of water and head to bed, only to repeat the same process in the morning. There are three products however that I manage to fit into my routine at least a couple times a week and trust me it makes a difference.

It's important that every girl has at least one classic go-to denim jacket. Once you've got yours it's fun to play around with some fun spins on the staple. This sweater sleeved denim jacket is part of the UNIF x UO collection and I thought it would be the perfect little number to throw over all of my short dresses during the day.
