Allow me to indulge in some random thoughts for tonight...like Indian beads.
My cousin Miguel just came from India 2 weeks ago & brought me back these colorful, wonderful beads!
along with a hand carved wooden-block horse stamp,
sandalwood scented money envelopes, keychains,
& milk candies with edible silver leaf (*gasp*, really they're yummy!)
With all those vibrant colors, this room I saw from FTRB immediately sprang up to mind.
The beads also remind me of the colors of the ocean (& my toenails, haha)
at a particular time of day...like 4pm on an overcast afternoon,
...and you know that these colors / creatures are down there! (unfortunately, I found this crab all dried up on a rock & I brought it back with me to the resort. Even at death, it's still pretty. All that honey & amber against that white pebble wash! oh boy).

Finally, I got to wear the Indian beads on the 2nd day of our company trip to Mindoro (blogging about that this week).
I thought that with its strong colors, it would be hard to pair with anything but surprisingly it went with everything I wore: my fave gold bangles, friendship bracelets...& even my striped black, white, & fuchsia pink Billabong bikini.
It even went with the boat's rusty anchors, vibrant blue ropes, & pebbles I got from the beach! (I know, I know, I'm getting carried away...hahaha! Honestly I'm just finding a way to justify my excessive use of Instagram lately. I can't stop grouping my photos using Dyptic Frames, I'm officially addicted. I think my habit of associating fashion w/ objects, colors & interiors has found an outlet & a medium to express itself. Brace yourselves).
More to come!
