Justina LOVES the Nina Nguyen Stella Geode Earrings. Recently, Justina featured these earrings on her blog titled “My Kinda Bling and how I transform into a Samurai mom” which can be found here. “As soon as I put them on I felt like I got my sexy back–they’re like heels for my ears. Crystals are so damn cool and are glamorous, earthy, boho and oh so me.”-Justina
“If my life were a movie, it would be about a lady that discovers beauty in the most unexpected places, and slowly learns to create beauty herself–she learns to weave straw into gold and turn trash into treasures. I’d be played by Maya Rudolph–my husband would be played by Adrian Brody, or maybe John Cusack, and it would be a romantic comedy–the kind with a lot of magical realism and really over-the-top sets and costumes and stuff. Our baby daughter, Ida Sky could probably play herself–she loves a camera. The movie would take place in our Jungalow. There would be flashbacks to my hippie upbringing in Berkeley, my college years studying World Arts and Cultures at UCLA and the seven years I spent living and working as a designer in Italy…and it would most definitely be a musical.” -Justina
