The boutique where I work on weekends has some pretty crazy ear cuffs in our jewelry section, big ol’ things blinged out with rhinestones and crystal feathers. True statement pieces. A couple weeks ago, this little old lady came in. She was a classic southern lady, probably close to 90, decked out in Ferragamo heels, a fur bolero, and bright pink rouge. She picked up one of the ear cuffs and asked, “What is this?” I showed her how to put it on, and she looked in the mirror and gasped, “I look … badass.” “Yes you do!” I said, because she totally did, and she ended up buying it. So rad. I’m not sure I have what it takes to pull off a huge ear cuff like that lady, but I love the look of a dainty ear pin that extends up the ear a bit. This triple star design is so cool. Maybe not badass, but definitely cool. [$18.36, Arajera]

In honor of Amelia’s current obsession with Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Cosmos,” this week’s Etsy Spotlight is a space-tastic galaxy print flask. Because hey, when your mind is blown by quotes like, “The cosmos is also within us. We’re made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself,” no one’s going to blame you for needing a sip of something strong to help you recover. Science: we’ll drink to that! [$19.50, RK Grace]

Etsy Spotlight: Words Of Wisdom To Wear Around Your Neck

If there’s any three-word phrase that can instantly calm my control freak, perfectionist self, it’s “Let it be.” I love the sentiment. I love the song. And I really love this beautiful pendant necklace, made with hand-drawn chalk art. Isn’t that lettering dreamy? If you like the necklace but hate The Beatles (I met someone once who hated The Beatles, so I know you weirdos exist), check out the rest of this Etsy shop’s gorgeous chalkboard art jewelry. There’s definitely something for everyone! [$30, CuffLoves]

Scientific studies have shown that looking at original art activates the rewards system in your brain. My personal studies have shown that eating a donut does too. So I can only imagine what kind of happy-making cerebral fireworks would be set off by looking at this 18×24 inch original oil painting of a box of donuts. Delicious and artistic? Don’t mind if I do!

Etsy Spotlight: 14 Cool & Cute Tablet Covers To Protect Your Precious E-Reader

Jessica is turning 30 next week and her husband is gifting her with a Kindle Paperwhite, which really is the perfect gift for a book nerd like her. Naturally, she’s in the market for a cute cover/sleeve/case, so I volunteered to peruse Etsy for her and any other tablet owners who want their gadgets to be protected and well-dressed.

I’m currently wearing two sweaters and my skin is so dry it feels like it’s going to fall off, which is why I’m staring wistfully at this funky, heart-print headwrap and yearning for the greasy roots and boho fashions of summer. I am so ready to ditch my beanies and thick scarves in favor of funky headwraps and cutoffs. SO ready. [$18, ThreeBirdNest]
