Though this was an assigned project, it became very personal pretty quickly. The goal was to catalog different collections and passions that were personal to us and reasons why we had become designers in the first place. I hardly realized how many things influenced my designs until I began the project. The catalog is an origami folded accordion that is double sided. It is really enjoyable to look at and unfolds in an organic manner, much like each event, artist, or interest links organically to one another.

Finals are breathing down my neck, so my Sunday was filled with little treats like a delish grand mocha orange latte from the neighborhood coffee shop Jaho for me and a black eye for the roomie. How cute are those coffee sleeves? I then decided to take a break from working on projects to paint my nails. I did a base coat of Secret Admirer from Orly's Love Collection. It's a nice peachy nude perfect for spring. Then I went back with Goldeneye by OPI. It's from their metallic collection and is my favorite glitter polish. It goes on smooth and gives you solid coverage within a coat or two. I took some inspiration from Pinterst (of course) and did a fun angled french manicure. I don't know about you, but freshly painted nails always helps me feel super put together, which is exactly what I need being so swamped with work this week! Wish me luck.
