niki & lola polygonia bangle

lucky penny is playing secret santa, again. three’s a charm.

once upon a time, boy meets girl. they get married, and have kids. she designs jewellery, and he makes it. niki & lola is a creative collaboration between angie tingas and michael proteau. it is named after their daughters, and inspired by how little girls (much like parents) are so uniquely different. sophia niki likes things that are pretty and delicate, and is sophisticated yet a perfectionist at heart. alexia lola is jovial, smart and funny, always raring to go, and independent to a fault.

she conceptualizes every design, while he handcrafts each one at his home workshop. they mix shapes and textures whilst remaining elegant but edgy in esthetic. all pieces are one-of-a-kind and hand-soldered using only metals with semi-precious stones. handmade in toronto.

penny claus absolutely adores her polygonia bangle. it is light as a feather… let’s be twinsies!

***psst… the contest rules are as follows: leave a comment below and tell us which piece is your favourite. for extra entries: 1. tweet us saying “dear @luckypennydaily, ask secret santa to gift me some @nikiandlola.” and/or 2. “like” lucky penny on facebook and niki and lola, too. the winner will be announced on boxing day. ka-pow! dukes up.

lucky penny is damn beautiful… and so are her shoes.

damn heels was once a brilliant idea, after a fun night out of dancing, that grew into a collection of fabulous flats inspired by high heels. hailey coleman created them to suit any lifestyle, from a coffee meeting and yoga class, to after-work drinks and a jet-set holiday — all day and every day.

for the second of three in her secret santa series, penny claus is giving away a damn pair. the damn glamorous collection features shoes designed to look like a corset. the two-tone detail in front elongates the foot and leg, and shows off a hint of flirty toe cleavage. the sides skim lower ending in a beautiful lace detail in the back. the result is the look of a heeled foot, with the feel of a flat.

each pair unfolds to reveal a hot pink lining, and the soles are embossed with the damn heels logo. they come in a clutch that makes it perfect for gift giving. the set is $55 each, and sizes range from 6-10 in three different colours (black diamonds, champagne gold and gunmetal glitz).

lucky penny is not only a gifting goddess, but also has a spectacular surprise for her lovely readers. drum roll, please…

for the first of three in her secret santa series, what is all-natural, locally made and smells good enough to eat? lovefresh, a proudly canadian company, uses only fresh ingredients and natural essential oils to create mouth-watering scents such as key lime coconut, pink grapefruit & tangerine, and pomegranate.

lovefresh recently stripped down to its skivvies, but still kept it classy. naked, an unscented cream and body wash, is the latest addition to the family. there is also lovenotes, a secondary collection of travel-friendly duets of decadent body butters and lotions in bosc pear, japanese grapefruit and vanilla bean.

whether sitting pretty atop a vanity or as a stocking stuffer, lovefresh is the perfect gift for loved ones, the hostess with the mostest or even you, darling.

beer belly

No Comments 10 October 2012

lucky penny often imbibes on pink panthers, but sometimes… she wants a cold, crisp beer. how canadian.

so when she caught wind that one of her go-to brewski companies, molson rickard’s, was launching its first seasonal lager, she was intrigued. the name also makes a sartorial reference so she thought, “beer and fashion coming together? say whaaaaaat?”.

as it turns out, rickard’s cardigan has tasting notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and a hint of brown sugar. upon first sniff and sip, our girl caught herself dreaming of sitting fireside with cute boyfriend whilst swathed in a cozy sweater, er, cardigan.*wink*
