YOU CAN HIT ME WITH ONE OF THESE GIFTS

Tis the season of Scorpio and also my birthday, which is just 5 days away. My sister Rhonda asked me what I wanted for my birthday, and I rattled on some list of coffee table books, perfume, etc, I never ever know what I want for my birthday, I’d much rather give gifts, and if I say so myself I am a great gift giver. So in the spirit of helping out my loved ones who might bestow a tiny token of their appreciation for moi on my born day, here is my birthday hit list for 2014, I’m just trying to help folks out…ya know, so they won’t feel disappointed in their gift giving, I mean, this blog isn't called Everr Wanting for nothing. Enjoy and Be Inspired!
Coffee table books! I can’t get enough of them.
A subscription to one of my favorite and inspiring magazines C California Style
Exotic citrus scents that evoke the Caribbean and the Italian Rivera, the perfect scent-escape for the chilly days ahead.
Neroli Portofino Body Oil – Since I can’t afford the $215 / $295 for the perfume the body oil will just have to do.
Calyx  Perfume- Cult favorite and long lasting, I use to wear this scent back in the day, and I still can’t get enough of it.
Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Bergamot (they had me at bergamot)
Keeping time in style, and that blacked out chronograph definitely makes a statement.
Art on the wallls! Jimi Hendrix on my walls please!
Moto boots for this Cali chic, still lost in tomboy-boho bliss.

ELSA PERETTI: ICON AND INNOVATOR

Former model turned iconic jewelry for Halston and now 40 years with Tiffany & Co., Elsa Peretti is the creative behind Tiffany & Co's best selling iconic designs. "Her designs have been defined pure, neat, chic and timeless. “A slithering snake, a bone, a Henry Moore sculpture, a fit of depression, a flea market find...these are some of the things that have inspired Elsa Peretti’s designs”."
This photo of Elsa Peretti  was taken in 1974 at the Halston studio.
Elsa Peretti Scorpion Necklace which she designed for Tiffany & Co. in 1979

 Elsa Peretti also designed the tear drop shaped bottle for the Halston perfume, and bottle pendant necklace for Halston in the early 70's.
 Another iconic design for Halston was Elsa Peretti's "Equestrian" belt and buckle. 
Here's another one, iconic snake earrings and the Amapola Brooch both designed for Tiffany & Co.
Another Elsa Peretti design for Tiffany & Co., these Lacquer Bangles.
"Paretti continues to design and inspire from her time as a model and muse of the ‘60s and ‘70s and her early work with Halston, to designing some of the most iconic Tiffany pieces." Enjoy and Be Inspired!

...WHY A DRAGONFLY?

Why a dragonfly? Because you can learn a thing or two from a dragonfly; they're calculating and efficient at what they do; When a dragonfly sets its sights on a target, it will almost always end up with a meal. They can see in all directions-nearly all of the dragonflies head is eye, they never stop eating, voracity isn't always a bad thing, and there are over 5000 species of dragonflies.

For something that looks so menacing, (hence the name dragon), this insect use to get a bad rep, but the tide has changed for our little predator friend. Generally, dragonflies are symbols of courage, strength, and happiness, and they often appear in art and literature. Who knew? 

What I learned is that strength can come from the smallest of beings and sometimes the most amazing things come when you least expect it and from where you'd least expect it. Might and will can make even a dragonfly powerful and significant...so why can't I? I will never look at a dragonfly the same again. Enjoy and Be Inspired!
