Books As Jewelry

I have always been incredibly passionate about books. Hardcover, Kindle, online, Romanian, Spanish or English, new or used, doesn't really matter, as long as it's one of my favorites. And believe me, I have quite a list of favorites:)

To this day, I cannot think of a more pleasurable way to spend a day than sipping a caramel flavored cappuccino and reading a newly purchased book.

Nor of a more beautiful present I can possible receive (especially if the giver is well aware of my fondness for historical novels, conspiracy and secret societies).

But today I'm adding the second best present I could ever receive: books turned into amazing, breathtaking pieces of jewelry. Little treasures you can take everywhere, adorn yourself with and make a really special and personal statement. Call me a dreamer, but I'd happily give a rest to most of my precious accessories and switch to any of the following little wonders:

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe ring (inspired by C.S. Lewis's masterpiece):

You can find it here . It's in 18 carat gold and diamonds and I advise you not to browse further through Theo Fennell's masterworks unless you plan to sell your house and all of your other worldly possessions just to own some of his breathtaking rings...

On a more affordable note, here's to all Harry Potter fans:

For a more than reasonable 49$, you can order your favorite from The Noble Collection here.

Or you can opt for a ring (order your's here) and publicly declare your love and appreciation for J.K. Rowling's magnum opus.

Fan of The Hunger Games? "No problemo", you can get this beautiful necklace for only 20$ here.

Or you can check out Shop Azurite's offer for... well, Harry Potter again.

George R.R. Martin's best-selling book series "A Song of Ice and Fire" is brought to life in these small treasures that you can order here.

Are you a fan of murder mystery stories, Agatha Christie and brilliant detective works? There are plenty of offers for you too and some of my favorites can be found here

You should check these other ones as well:

And for even more inspiration and beautiful book-inspired jewelry, make sure you browse through BuzzFeed selection here.

Stay inspired!

Styleart - Designs that will steal your heart

Getting that perfect T-Shirt has always been quite the challenge for me. Might sound weird but it's true. I seem to easily get it right when it comes to dresses and jackets and pants and accessories - even if ordered online- but I almost always end up buying a bunch of T-shirts that I never ever wear outside and that somehow turn into house cleaning wardrobe.

I'm not sure why this happens. I don't even ask for that much, I just want them to be cool, comfortable, have a good design and decent quality. But I rarely find them and when I actually do, I absolutely definitely categorically must share it with all of you.

So last week I got this wonderul package from

To my shame, I did not know anything about this website up until last month, but the second I found it, I was conquered for good. I browsed franticly through all of their picks, and by the time I was done, my shopping cart was full. I reluctantly scraped some of them off and ended up ordering:

- this black T-shirt
- this white T-shirt
- this black hoodie (all for me)
and another T-shirt (this one) for my boo.

The package arrived very quickly and everything was just right, starting with measurements and design and ending with fabric (100% pure quality cotton).

All I had to do next was wait for a sunny warm day to take my beauties for a walk.

I now declare myself perfectly satisfied and cannot wait for the next order.
