Baker’s Bar Dessert Erasers

Baker's Bar Dessert Erasers Designer and PhD student Erica Walker designs for those who appreciate things that are Super Cute.  We’re all over Super Cute and adore her dessert erasers–irresistable, yet diet friendly. 

How’d she make them?  She gave us her recipe:

1 part obsession with erasers since age 4.
1 part unsuccessful attempt to create a Junk Food Barbie, her expanding/contracting waist, and her many, many  accessories.
1 part Spoonbridge and Cherry sculpture by Claes Oldenburg.

Why else do we heart Erica?  She eats potato chips with chopsticks to avoid having greasy fingers. 

$15  at edesse designs.

Omiru Poll Results: Bright Yellow is IN!

Omiru Poll Result: Bright Yellow is IN

Kenneth Jay Lane Oversized Enamel/Pearl Flower RingWe asked: Is Bright Yellow In or Out?

You said:  Long live Bright Yellow! A significant 70% majority is all over the cheery color.

Omiru’s take:
We’re sweet on Bright Yellow to cheer up an otherwise humdrum outfit.  Got a pair of grey slacks and a white button-down for work?  Add a Bright Yellow sweater or overcoat to the mix.  Even if you’re not into bold colors, you can still add spark to your wardrobe with Bright Yellow accessories.  Try out Bright Yellow with a cute handbag, a pair of shoes, a brooch, or even a ring.

Next Question: We’ve noticed Charm Bracelets rising up the trend ladder, probably for their inherent versatility. But what do You think?   Tell us, are Charm Bracelets
In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!
