Sally Han, a Toronto based jewelry designer found her passion for making jewelry at the young age of 19. Since then, she has launched two jewelry brands, Shop For Jayu along with its sister brand Pslams 91:1 Accessories.

Han’s Shop For Jayu collection, which offers fashionable, trendy and bold designs at super affordable prices is currently being sold at numerous stores across Toronto and was recently picked up by Anthropologie in the U.S.

One thing that really inspired me about Sally is that she takes the opportunity to give back, with her Pslams 91:1 Accessories line, she creates jobs for widows and marginalized individuals in Africa, Korea, Canada and beyond.

I chatted with Sally about everything from her pregnancy (she’s expecting her first child, a baby girl!), fashion and of course she dished on her new holiday collection.

DIY: Plaid Nail Art Tutorial

Plaid nail art using Sally Hansen's I Heart Nail Art pens.

If you have been following my blog recently, you may have realized I have a plaid obsession. If you missed my must-have plaid scarves post, you can check it out here.

I decided to do a plaid nail art tutorial using these awesome nail art pens from Sally Hansen. They are available in Round and Fine tip (I am using the Fine tip ones for this tutorial).

The pens are a water-based formula which wipe off easily and they seal with a top coat.

So, follow my easy instructions to create plaid nails and I apologize in advance for my chipped nail on my middle finger (it broke the day before and now I have to wait for it to grow out).
