One of Victoria’s of her bigger concerns when her babies were born was making sure their little feet were always comfortable. That is why she created and crafted Chus Baby, inspired by the types of shoes worn by our ancestors, like moccasins and espadrilles. These shoes are made with the softest leather, so when your baby wears them, you can feel every part of his/her little feet. You can rest assured your baby will be able to wiggle his/her little toes inside the shoes, as if he/she was not wearing any shoes. And you will also be able to feel their little toes and make sure there will be no unpleasant incidents for your precious baby. They currently offer just one type of shoe, with plans to grow their catalog in the future.

Sporting smart quotes that range from witty to funny to pop culture inspired, Maura’s hand-made jewelry dishes are one of the most original home decoration items you have ever seen. They are fantastic for keeping your daily use jewelry in one place of course, but also as a perfect coin or key dish that everyone that enters your home can see and admire. They make also a great home-warming party present.
Be fierce every day! This #jewelry dish is now available in my store! I photographed it with some of my favorite baubles (the jewels you can buy are tagged if you tap the screen, but some are custom made or vintage like my grandmother’s pave diamond ball studs, so you can’t get them anywhere). You can find my store by clicking the link in my profile or by searching for PressedIntentions on #Etsy! #pressedintentions
Lorraine C. Ladish books.
Bilingual author of 18 books, writer, editor, speaker & social media maven, Lorraine is one of the most authentic human beings you will find on Earth. Lorraine was born and raised in Spain and her hispanic heritage permeates in everything she writes, shares in social media or talk about when she is speaking in one her many talk gigs. While she has a lot of talents -like out-of-this-world yoga positions-, the way she writes about her own experiences and how she documents herself in order to not only share opinions but actual facts is one of my favorite assets when reading her books.
