Hairstyles: The Pixie

The 'Pixie Cut' is timeless...

We're loving these short hairstyles which make us nostalgic for the Great Gatsby and flapper era. Even though it's considered a 'boy' cut, it is still feminine and graceful.

Sunday Funday! No more rainy days please!

Since its been rainy lately in San Diego, this Felix Rey 'Singing in the Rain' umbrella would be so perfect!

Loooove the nerdy bunny on this cardigan sweater! Also loving the color too! Modcloth always has the cutest sweaters!

Hunter Wellies always look so sleek and classic! I love the chocolate color of this particular one and the buckle details.

MAC's Paint Pots are one of my personal favorites. Their newest collection of paint pots includes this frosty peach color which would be great for Spring!

A pink dolphin with a green hat.. what more could you ask for?! Too cute! by BelsArt on Etsy

Homemade Glazed Donuts! Yummmm!

Makeup by Eman has been a go-to source of mine for some time now. She's such a talented makeup artist, and I love her style and technique. I especially love this look she did inspired by Adrienne Bailon. A peachy babydoll look!

Im starting to become obsessed with bookends..

#6 Sunday Discoveries

Sunday Discoveries! Already thinking about Spring...

These cute little leather flats with an ankle strap from Seychelles are so adorable! The pastel yellow and peach would be so perfect for Spring!

The perfect little vintage armoire to hold all your pretty jewelry pieces! Love the color and the distressed look! The etching detail and antiqued hardware is fantastic! From HuckleberryVntg on Etsy.

Since its been record cold in San Diego... colder weather means drier skin! I swear to this lip balm! It is a men's line, but I promise, it is the best lip balm I have ever used! The Lemon and Chamomile scent is the most delicious!

Gourmet heart shaped sugar... whaaaat?! If only I had $43 to blow on sugar... I would probably never it eat it, its too pretty! There must be a DIY way to make these tiny gems of sugar! Great Valentines Day Gift though =)

I might just start becoming a greeting card collector as an excuse to get this card and keep it for myself! 'The World Is Your Oyster' my friend... Live it!

Metal pails can be so useful when organizing! I got 3 mini metal pails from Target recently that were on clearance for $1 each! I couldn't find them on their website, but I found these from the Container Store. You could use them for practically anything! Planters, pen holder, scarf holder, ice bucket, etc. etc.

A Little Red Riding Hood tape dispenser! Hold your scotch tape or washi tape in this cute little thing!

Got this pack of 5 pairs of socks at H&M! Love the polka dot and the argyle! I think I'm already going into my pastel colors phase as Spring is about to approach..

A Lucky Cat USB Drive! You can have it just sitting at your desk looking like a decoration and then pop! It turns into a USB drive! Loooove! It's on sale now over at!

The Twinery has all different colors of bakers twine! I want every color! Yes.. more pastel..

Happy Birthday to Us!!

Dear family, friends and supporters of August Wrinkle,

I just wanted to take this moment to say, thank you so so much, from the bottom of our hearts!

Our shop launched on January 11th 2012, and since that time, we have had to go through so many different experiences that have brought us the most of all, happiness and excitement!

At times we did have our stressful moments, pulling all-nighters and drinking lots and lots coffee, but we managed to get over our hurdles and keep on believing!

This past year we made the big leap to leave our home in Hawaii and make the move to California! We are so grateful to have had the opportunity and support in both places (we miss you Hawaii!).

Our shop still remains, 'A Little Boutique in a Big World', as a small family business. We love having that personal relationship with all of you and to keep the items in our shop as selective as possible. We search day and night to bring you items we think you would enjoy!

Overall, we truly have the best customers and support that we could have hoped for, and we hope to continue our relationship with you for the years to come. We couldn't have done it without you!

Much Love and Aloha,
Janalyn Francisco
The August Wrinkle Family
