Happy Friday the 13th, All!!! Now, let’s get down to business.
Like of the Week: Ingenious Potted Plant Jewelry for the Metropolitan Masses
Love all things miniature? Looking for the perfect gift for that someone in your life with a green thumb? Got a teeny tiny apartment too small for a pet but perfect for an itty-bitty plant? Then look no further than these quirky and inventive mini potted plants that you can wear!
That’s right, created by the Icelandic company HAF, these unique handmade silver rings and necklaces showcase genuine plant life and are the perfect off-beat touch to any ensemble.
According to the site, “The collection of this hand jewelry is designed for people in metropolitan cities and is an experiment in drawing nature toward man…”
Plus, the great thing about these plants is that you only have to water them every 5 weeks, so previous plant killers need not worry (myself included!) and the moss can keep its natural grassy color for up to a full year.

Let the record show that these shoes (if you can even call them that) are so heinous and so hideous that they are offensive to sneakers and flip flops EVERYWHERE! Apparently Converse felt the need to create their very own hybrid of footwear to frighten a new generation with. If a Spade’s a Spade then these shoes are straight up, hands down fug. Seriously, my retinas are burning here!
Now, don’t get me wrong, I owned more than my fair share of Chucks during my middle and high school career and STILL rock a pair to this day, but THIS?!?!… This is an abomination. I thought the whole reason for flip-flops was that they were basically created for the lazy. All I’m seeing is a schizo flip-flop with partial sneaker-like tendencies and a bunch of excess fabric and ties. These shoes are just plain high maintenance.
Still, if it’s your “thing” to rock horrendous shoes you can purchase these bad boys at DSW for $34.95. Personally, I would pay $34.95 to NEVER have to put these on my feet.
Converse, I’m sorry but you FAIL!
