Pretty camera straps for women and girly girl photographers. Now why didn’t anyone come up with these earlier! Luckily, the folks at Bloom Theory did. And boy, the boring old cam strap never looked this lovely. Check out Petite Chérie, above, featuring a mustard-colored linen bow. Isn’t it adorable!
From top, left to right: Ballet by Degas (mint tulle, I die!), Bohemian Belle, You Are My Sunshine, All About The Beaus (my fav, love the sweet little bow) and Vanilla Skies.
Washed Ashore, “inspired by Grecian goddesses and Odysseus’ mermaids”.
You work it, girl! If your camera strap looks like a cute fashion accessory, you’d be striking poses with a camera on your neck too instead of asking someone to hold your DSLR for you while you have your picture taken. L-R: Wild Flower, Moonshine.
Ready for my close-up… This one — Ocean Mist — looks like it is part of the outfit! Now we just need the camera to match the color of the dress.
Pretty pink and frilly cream camera straps, yes, yes, yes — Après Moi Le Déluge, Bohemian Belle, Wild Flower and Tea Party.
Fire in the hole! ……..KA-BLOOM!!! No, wait! KA-BLOOM?!
This is no ordinary grenade — instead of blowing up and destroying things, this green grenade grows flowers. The “flower grenade” known as the Seedbom is designed by Darren Wilson for Kabloom. Made from locally reclaimed and recycled materials in the UK, it contains organic compost, fertiliser, coir, and a lovely selection of flower seeds including Sunflower Incredible, Nasturtium Peach Melba and UK native wildflower and cornfield mix. Thrown into a wasteland, Seedboms will, under the right condition of sunlight, water and soil, start breaking down to release their seeds.
Seed bombing has been around for decades. Also known as seed balls or earth balls, it is a way to sow crops in harsh habitats.
The concept of compacting an explosive mix of wild flower and garden plant seeds into a little grenade-shaped recycled paper shell is embraced by the folks at Guerrilla Gardeners to add life and colors into derelict, lifeless places.
We shall not wilt. Let a thousand flowers bloom.
Seedboms are only available in Europe at the time of this post. Visit Kabloom for more information.
The color blocking trend is still going strong this season but to those among us averse to wearing contrasting solid colors from head to toe, colorful accessories will add just the right amount of pop to your spring or summer outfit. These cute coordinates are from J.Crew. Love the hot pink capri and navy+white striped espadrilles combination.
For shoes, I’m loving these ballet flats — in all the candy colors plucked from the rainbow — along with metallics and floral prints.
