Designs by Bella: Vintage Lollipops x Magazzini del Sale Capsule Collection

Last year, Italian designer Graziano Moro of Magazzini Del Sale contacted me about collaborating and designing a five-piece Limited Edition capsule collection for their SS 11 Love Can Change the World t-shirt line. Having never been given such an incredibly surreal opportunity before, you can imagine my absolute surprise... followed by some sort of psychotic jubilation. At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x Magazzini del Sale Capsule Collection! To say it's been a dream come true would be an understatement!

Designs by Bella is part of the Love Can Change the World collaboration between Bella Harris of Vintage Lollipops and Magazzini del Sale. The Limited Edition capsule consists of five, premium Ecru t-shirts featuring exclusive designs infused with stylistic illustrations and a versatility that makes them sublime for everyday wear. The aesthetic epitomizes the notion of staying true to your individuality that sets you apart from the rest.

My debut collection is available in five Limited Edition prints, and come in both slim fit and oversized styles. Available for purchase on

Color: Ecru
Sizes: Small, medium, large
Material: 100% cotton

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Historic Home Flood GoFundMe

Any donation you can make is appreciated. If you are unable to donate, you can still help by sharing this story with your friends and family. Thank you so very much.
Less than a year ago, I became a homeowner of a beautiful, old Victorian built in 1870. A dream come true but recently a nightmare. This was a milestone in my life... and yet now something I'm asking anyone that can, to please help save it from repeated flooding and water damage. Unaware this was a past issue, I'm faced with devastating restoration costs in order to maintain the preservation and integrity of my home's internal and external structure. 
This past week, we received significant amounts of rainfall and the NWS issued flash flooding in this area. Because of untreated damage over the years before I lived here, rainfall continues to pour down/through parts of the roof and pipes as ground water surges in, flooding the inside of my home with 18-24 inches of water.
Winter temperatures are still in the mi…

Vitamins for Happy Tresses

Nobody wants to think about thinning hair, and when extra strands start blanketing your bathroom floor it can be very scary. As women, we tend to put our locks through the ringer by blow-drying, straightening, coloring, and raking a brush through wet tresses. Big no no. But everyday stress and hormonal imbalances play a part too. Hair loss afflicts men and women and to some degree, it's perfectly normal.But it can be a sign of a more serious problem so it's important to take those vital steps in improving your hair health and that means taking your daily vitamins.
Formulated with OptiMSM® and 37 essential vitamins, minerals, and herbs for hair strengthening nutritional support, Vibrance Pure Hair Vitamins for Growth nourishes your hair while creating more volume and shine. I've been taking Vibrance Pure Hair Vitamins for Growthfor a little over two weeks and while I haven't seen a significant change in growth, I have noticed a better balance of oils when I'm on that…
