    Harlow’s Adoption Birthday | Beadmas Day 10

    Happy Beadmas 2020! I hope you had a great week. Today, we are celebrating Harlow’s Adoption Birthday, as well as Day 10 of Beadmas!

    In today’s blog post, I am sharing some of my favourite facts about my very special guinea pig. Many of you came to know Harlow on my Youtube videos. She often co-hosted with me and was a great little jewellery model. She was also (and still is) one of my very best friends. She is now a Guardian Guinea Angel. She went to heaven in the Spring of 2019.

    So, if you ready! Make sure to grab a delicious cup of tea (Harlow would recommend, Buddha’s Blend from DAVIDsTEA, that was her favourite) and let’s get started!

    This post contains some affiliate links.

    Many people described Harlow as more like a dog, then a guinea pig. She loved being by my side. She would come out of her habitat to find me. She also loved exploring around our home and going on adventures with us outside. She came on picnics, short nature walks (we would carry her) and once she even came to a waterfall with us! Check out my Youtube Video “In-Loving Memory” for a photo.

    She was also washroom trained. So much so, that she would let me know when she would have to go and I would bring her back to her habitat.

    Her favourite foods were kale, arugula, apples and strawberries. Oh, and of course Timothy Hay and her Oxbow Support treats!

    Harlow also loved “tea time” with me. She enjoyed taste testing all the different herbal teas. She loved “Harlow Approving” the “tea of the day” during DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea too.

    Harlow was extremely affectionate and loved cuddle time. She also loved to take naps with me and would gentle wake me up when she got hungry or had to go to the washroom. I would drop her off and not long later, she would be “wheeking” for me to come back and get her.

    She would also “purr” a very affectionate sound, all the time! This is one of the sounds I miss hearing the most.

    I think one of my favourite things about Harlow was how compassionate and loyal she was. Whenever I was having a tough day or not feeling well, she would never leave my side.

    Harlow’s personality was confident, compassionate and courageous. She was the leader (or Queen, as we like to say) of our two other guinea pigs, Zooey and Georgina. She loved bossing them around and “setting them straight”! Harlow enjoyed both Zooey and Georgina’s friendship, but she was extra close with Georgina.

    Harlow also loved meeting new human friends, especially if they gave her treats! She was very social for a guinea pig

    Harlow was an Abyssinian Guinea Pig which means she had beautiful rosette-like fur. It would grow in different directions and would grow out in “circular like” shapes.

    The colour of her fur was a mixture of colours: red, gold, blonde and white. I also liked to say her fur was a caramel colour.

    And that concludes some of my favourite facts about Harlow! She was a very special guinea pig and a best friend I will never forget.

    The bond with a pet can be so strong and special, no matter their size or species! Do you have any special pets that you hold close to your heart?

    I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe, during this outbreak. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    I am a bit late in posting this blog, but this past Tuesday I published a new YouTube video about the OHM Beads June Release. In this video, I share an unboxing and my first impressions. The beads I unbox include: OHM Wagyl (Australian exclusive), OHM Walk the Walk (Thailand exclusive) and OHM Time Machine (OHM Lab Project). I also share another look (and some brief styling) of my OHMistry bead, OHM Don’t Give Up. You can watch the video HERE or down below:

    SO, make sure to grab a delicious cup of tea (I am enjoying some iced Peach Matcha from DAVIDsTEA*) and let’s get started!

    * I am a DAVIDsTEA Affiliate

    Official OHM Photos | June Release:

    The June Release will be officially available on June 4th, 2020.

    The Wagyl (AKA, Rainbow Serpent) looks like it curled around, over the wearer’s bracelet. So cool!

    I love OHM Walk the Walk! So much detail from every single angle!

    The OHM Time Machine is one of my favourites from June! It is amazing and one of my top choices!! If you could travel in the OHM Time Machine, where would you go and why?

    Not shown in my unboxing, but there is also a OHM glass bead in the June release. It is called, OHM Lila Gold and is an exclusive to OHM in Europe:

    And lastly…here is a little look at my bead, but I will be sharing a more detailed look at the official OHM stock photos, at a later date! I will also be including photos of the design process, including the wax model, etc. So excited to share these photos with you all!

    My Bead Collab. with OHM:

    What do you think of the June Release? What are your favourites?

    As mentioned, my top pick would be OHM Time Machine. I love the all the details on it and it is such an imaginative bead! Every time you look at it, you may just go on an adventure. Also…how could my very own OHMistry bead not be in my top favourites? 😉 🙂

    Have a wonderful rest of your day! Stay safe and talk to you all very soon! xo

    The Story & Inspiration Behind my Bead Design with OHM Beads | Don’t Give Up

    Happy Monday! I hope this blog posts finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and doing well.

    This past Saturday, I premiered a special video on Youtube. It is part two of my “Exciting Announcement” video. If you remember from my previous blog post, I shared that I will be OHM Beads June 2020 OHMistry Project. This means I got to design my own bead with OHM Beads! It is such a surreal, crazy dream come true.

    In my new video, I share a detailed look at my bead, as well as the story and inspirations behind it. This is probably my most personal (and slightly vulnerable) video yet. You can watch it HERE or down below:

    Thank you to this incredible community and to OHM Beads for making this dream come true. Biggest virtual hugs!

    OHM Don’t Give Up

    My OHMistry Project bead is called, DON’T GIVE UP. It is a silver oxidized bead and will be releasing on June 19th, 2020 at 10:00 AM Pacific time zone.
    The limited-edition release of DON’T GIVE UP is part of Project OHMistry and is limited to 111 signed and serialized pieces. A certificate of authenticity is included inside a limited edition box (I actually got to illustrate the box art myself).

    As mentioned in my video, this bead reflects a journey. It is a mountain that has a dark side and a light side to it. Here is the story behind the bead:

    DON’T GIVE UP, you tell yourself. You feel it in your heart and soul. You are meant to succeed.

    It starts with those first few steps. But with all journeys, it is a struggle of faith and self-assurance. Fear finds its way to creep in. It twists your path, voices harsh judgment, creates doubt and pain. It tries to seize the victory that awaits you.

    At your darkest moment, when all feels lost, this bead reminds you to keep going. Push upwards, onwards! Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see.

    Having faith will guide your journey, through the darkness. The clouds will open, the path will brighten and the further you go, the clearer your path becomes. You will find unexpected help. You will experience achievements, big and small. Before you know it, you will arrive at the end and the start of a new beginning.

    You will be victorious. Every fear, doubt, and painful memory will be conquered.

    What is your “Don’t Give Up” journey?

    Leading up to June 19th, I will continue to share the journey of designing this bead with OHM Beads! Stay tuned for official OHM Beads photos, the process of seeing my bead come to life (from wax to silver) and how I’ve been styling my bead.

    Side note: Can you spot my artist signature, on this bead? I love that OHM Beads added this detail to the bead. You can also find it on the box art:

    Anyway, that is it for today’s blog post! I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day and talk to you soon! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH AGAIN! xo

    I made a quick video to share my exciting news with you! You can watch it HERE or down below:

    After watching the video…

    Here are some photos taken back on August 29th. I was at a local cafe, enjoying the end of summer while sketching out some more ideas for my OHMistry Project bead: DON’T GIVE UP. Also, can you spot my mini poodle puppy Ella, on my lap? She’s such a cutie!

    My OHMistry Project bead is called, DON’T GIVE UP. It is a silver oxidized bead and will be releasing on June 19th, 2020 at 10:00 AM Pacific. As per the OHMistry Project beads, it is a limited edition bead! There will only be 111 made…which makes it extra special!

    Over the next few weeks, I will continue to share the journey of designing this bead with OHM Beads, the inspiration/story behind it, as well as an unboxing and detailed look at this bead! At the present moment, I am waiting for my bead to arrive, so I can see it for the first time! I cannot wait to hold it and see all the special details in person.

    Since I don’t have the bead to share with you yet, here is a little look at one of my first sketches:

    I also just wanted to say again: a HUGE thank you to OHM Beads and each and every one of you. This is the craziest dream come true and I cannot believe it! Thank you sooo so much. I truly hope you will love this bead. xo

    The Art Oblivion’s First Bead Collection + OHM Exclusives

    In today’s blog post, I will be sharing a closer look at five beads that are exclusive to The Art Oblivion. Two of the beads are from The Art Oblivion’s first solo bead collection. The other three beads are from OHM Beads, made exclusively for The Art Oblivion.

    A special thank you to The Art Oblivion for sending me all 5 beads to review and style with!

    If you find a bead (or two) that you love and would like to order, feel free to use my code: FASHIONSHIPPING at The Art Oblivion checkout to receive free shipping off your order!

    To coincide with this blog post, I have also created a new YouTube video. You can watch that video, HERE or down below:

    The Launch of The Art Oblivion’s First Bead Collection

    The Art Oblivion (TAO) has officially launched their first solo collection of beads. I could not be more excited for them! There are two sterling silver beads that recently launched by TAO, on separate dates. Both beads are priced at $98 US. They are: In Flow and In Process.

    In Flow

    Our nervous systems are constantly being influenced by the waves around us. Mechanical and electromagnetic waves are ceaselessly present. Between the Ocean wave cut-outs on this bead are ACTUAL soundwave affirmations sent from my voice to your heart as an offering to soothe your personal daily vibration and keep you “In Flow.” They listed here as invitations. 

    The Art Oblivion

    The TAO In Flow bead officially released on February 22nd, 2020. The first batch was sold at a special price of $66.00 US for early adopters.

    Here is the meaning behind the bead:

    ” Our bodies are deep oceans, carrying abundant life and stories that coexist and make us what we are. 

    When we move with the flow of life within us, and use that life force to engage with the world around us, we become part of all Life, we are “In Flow”.

    This is not a passive process. There are many distractions that pull us out of flow when we are not mindful. I offer The Art Oblivion’s first silver bead, our first solo bead, as a talisman and physical reminder to remain “In Flow”

    Our nervous systems are constantly being influenced by the waves around us. Mechanical and electromagnetic waves are ceaselessly present. Between the Ocean wave cut-outs on this bead are ACTUAL soundwave affirmations sent from my voice to your heart as an offering to soothe your personal daily vibration and keep you “In Flow.” They listed here as invitations. 

    I invite you to be “right here, right now.”

    I invite you into the process of “letting go, letting in.”

    I invite you to experience “presence and flow.”


    – The Art Oblivion

    In Process

    The TAO In Process bead officially released on February 29th, 2020. The 29th of February was the leap year and that means that no other beads will be released on that day for another 7 years! Pretty darn cool!

    The first batch of this bead were also sold at a special price of $66.00 US for early adopters.

    Here is the meaning behind the bead:

    “We are all “In Process”.

    We are all “Becoming”.

    We are all breaking through something that contains us. Even if the something that contains us is a nurturing womb or transformative chrysalis, the time always comes for us to emerge and be born anew with an increased wisdom gained through experience. 

    The second bead in The Art Oblivion first collection, “In Process” invites us to understand that everything is on its way to somewhere, and is perpetually  “In Process.” What does it feel like to view yourself and others through this lens? We are all struggling with something. We have all overcome great obstacles.

    I offer this bead to serve as a physical reminder and talisman to foster compassion for ourselves and others, and to be present and curious about life’s process rather than being attached to a destination. I offer this bead in support for each one of us to break out of the shell that confines us, bravely stepping into the unknown, trusting ourselves to grow from whatever is on the other side.”


    – The Art Oblivion

    The Art Oblivion + OHM Beads

    Glass Beads

    From left: Humor, Resist and Unveil

    Humor $55 US

    I offer HUMOR as a visual reminder and talisman to support us in letting go of taking ourselves too seriously. The sparkles in that glass are there to shine a light on our place in the divine landscape, we are all shining stardust, connected and perfectly imperfect. We are only on this planet for a limited time. When we depart, may we all be able to say we laughed all of our laughter while we still could. 

    The Art Oblivion + OHM

    Inspiration behind the bead:

    When was the last time you had a good belly laugh? The kind that makes your abdominal muscles work and takes your breath away? Maybe even eliciting an uncontrollable snort?

    Consider me a cosmic doctor writing you a prescription to cure what ails you, and that prescription is HUMOR!

    You may not be able to remember the last time you had that belly laugh, but I bet you can remember that last time you took yourself too seriously. It might be happening right now. There is a tension within each of us to do things WELL, to do things right, to be the best, to know better. We are all children learning throughout the course of a lifetime, it never stops, and if we can view our own oopsies, mistakes, fails, falls, and errors with curiosity rather than judgment, we open ourselves to the HUMOR of life’s comedy and find laughter as the medicine we all so desperately need. 

    Resist $65 US

    I offer you RESIST, as a visual reminder and talisman to support you as you move through your day; There are key moments in life where it is important not to be polite, not to go with the flow, to USE your voice, to stand your ground, and RESIST. Complacency is collusion, now is your time to be the change you want to see in this world.

    The Art Oblivion + OHM

    Inspiration behind the bead:

    In Star Trek, there is a society called The Borg who state “resistance is futile” as they assimilate whole cultures of people into their collective. The Federation in this series not only resists, but prevails, with increased strength and resolve from the other side. 

    We are at an important time in humanity. Let us double down on our own resistance, less we become unconsciously assimilated into a dominating culture that would erase our communities, our families, and our individual rich uniqueness. 

    Often it is not easy, we must actively work to deprogram aspects of ourselves that have become familiar and comfortable. There is often loss in that. However, significant rewards for doing this work are the unfathomable and unshakable knowing of our most pure and true selves. 

    Unveil $65 US

    I offer UNVEIL as a visual reminder and talisman to support us in appreciating the bravery we have already shown through offering our unique self-expression, and as an invitation to reveal other essential aspects of our beings when we are ready. There is so much to learn about ourselves, and the world around us, when we UNVEIL ourselves. Life changes in unexpected and furthering ways the more we show ourselves in our unveiled naked power and vulnerability. Prepare to be surprised!

    The Art Oblivion + OHM

    Inspiration behind the bead:

    We are all so very brave. 

    Choosing to say yes to life is an incredible act of bravery, and choosing to put ourselves out there in our unique self-expression is an additional layer of courage. 

    Every day we get to choose what we reveal, and stepping into the dance where we shed layer after layer of our veils is the deliciously tantalizing spice of life!
