Temper Brand

We LOVE Temper Brand. A good friend of mine Jesse Morrow and his business partner Anna Mischke created this awesome jewelry company about a year ago on Jesse's trip to Cambodia (Which is where Anna lives, and the jewelry is made) 

All jewelry is designed by Jesse and Anna, and made up of old bullet casings and bombshells and are reworked into these beautiful pieces by artisans working for a fair-trade organization in Phnom Phen, Cambodia.

What I love most about Temper Brand is how simple and delicate their designs are. They seem to say it best -
 

"Making a statement does not always have to be done loudly; many important things are small, quiet, and often unnoticed. The vision behind TEMPER is the blending of our states of mind, the inherent degree of give in our raw materials, and our experience of integrating and accepting our emotions and personal sense of style.
Each TEMPER design is influenced by something that we see around us in our daily lives, whether a smile or bones at a museum from the regime of Pol Pot in Cambodia, a raindrop on the windshield, or a tear on the face of a loved one. They are meant to be simple reminders of the moments that move us, the people that change us, the stories that have yet to be told, and the things waiting to be discovered."

What Bethany Wore // Cozy City Style

A couple weekends ago I spent the weekend in Portland at the always cool, Ace Hotel. After seeing endless Instagram posts of the beautiful lobby, vintage photo booth, and stumptown coffee next door it was fun to finally get to stay at this hotel myself. It is trendy down to every detail, the staff was very pleasant, and the location is prime! I could easily say that I never wanted to leave. If you are paying a Portland a visit I highly recommend booking yourself a room here, or at least stopping in for a coffee.
