Currently Coveting: Three Jane NY

Yep. Those are bangles that look like hair ties.

Fashion publicist Katie Schloss founded Three Jane NY about a year ago, and is most recognized for The Map Necklace — a 14K gold plate that can have any location engraved on it. Your childhood home, where you had your first kiss, your favorite place in the world, etc., etc.

I love her line, and as I follow her on Instagram (obsessed, much?), I’ve really enjoyed the behind-the-scenes peaks at the recent pieces she’s been working on. Especially this bubble wand necklace. GIMME.

Wild Instinct: The Hedgehog

Today I came across one of the world’s cutest Instagram accounts — Darcy the Flying Hedgehog (thanks, Buzzfeed!). Needless to say, I thought about cute hedgehogs all day, and my friend (who is actually named Darcy…but isn’t a flying hedgehog) and I discussed them in depth — would they be soft? ¬†Cuddly? Can they make themselves less prickly if they like you?

This is Darcy the Flying Hedgehog:

Darcy!

So adorable, right?

There are a lot of communities on the Internet for hedgehog lovers, and I learned some interesting facts that I thought were worth sharing:

— Baby hedgehogs are called hoglets

— Hedgehogs prefer to live separately from other members of their species, but can form tight bonds with humans

— They have a strong sense of smell but weak eyesight (hey, me too!)
