Dayna Lee Collection

Dayna Langlois; Mississauga, Ontario, Canada

Bows, polka dots, and hand-written lettering get me every time! Add hearts and inspirational vibes to that list and you’ve got me hooked, Dayna Lee Collection.

Last month, I stopped by the One-of-a-Kind Spring Show in Toronto and I picked up an art print for my underdressed kitchen: a Dayna Lee Collection original motivating me to be a macaron in a cookie-cutter world. I feel like an idiot a lot for being just a little different (what some may call “weird”); it’s natural. But my New Year’s resolution for 2015 was to strive to write one positive line each day. Accepting who I am is part of that and if that means I stand out, then I’ll be the macaron!

The talent behind the shop, Dayna Langlois’ works feature art prints, notebooks, pillow covers, and accessories aimed at inspiring and empowering women. (Can I get an amen?)

Dayna, you’ve got me hooked and I’m loving everything you do. Dayna’s Etsy shop is a must-browse. Tonight’s plan: set aside some time to snuggle up with some tea, dig into all her offerings, and pick up a little gift just for you, because you deserve it! (Hint: Dayna’s pillow covers and prints also make great housewarming and graduation gifts for her.)

Purchasing information: Find Dayna Lee Collection on Etsy. You can also visit the Dayna Lee Collection Facebook page.


Maja Rolc Majeric and team; Ljubiljana, Slovenia

Every girl thinks about her ideal engagement ring. There are the classics: princess solitaire, cushion-cut three-stone, the signature Tiffany Setting. And then there are the stunning, simple, and unique designs of MinimalVS—a style that stands out without overwhelming. Their basic shapes and designs bring out beauty in simplicity.

I’m always browsing Etsy for new designers and creative minds. When I browsed the site for the very first time, I was swallowed up by MinimalVS. I couldn’t stop clicking from product to product, creating a mental wish list, when I finally made it to the engagement rings and wedding sets. I thought I had an idea of my ideal ring before—nope! (Though I definitely have a better idea now.)

Owner and designer Maja Rolc Majeric and her team of talented creatives and customer support professionals hail from Slovenia. Each ring is a labour of love and an absolute team effort. Their goal: to make all their customers happier and prettier. Their superstar ability: to truly bring out richness, elegance, and purity through minimalism. All diamonds used are all-natural and conflict-free.

Ladies, grab a glass of wine and swoon over these beauties. (Then pass the link along to the mister.)

Purchasing information: You can browse the MinimalVS Etsy shop, which features engagement rings, wedding sets, and modern jewellery for everyday wear. MinimalVS accepts custom orders; please contact them via Etsy before purchase.
