With any luck, significantly warmer days are ahead of us. But for the moment, it's feeling far more pre-fall than it is particularly vernal outside. You can't rush spring - something which all of the recent seasonally inappropriate, bare legged and light jacketed people on the streets don't seem to understand. The weather is just too complex a system, one that outsmarts even the most advanced of shadow analyst groundhogs. So keep that turtleneck sweater on, and enjoy what will hopefully be the last weekend where pudding and porridge prove the perfect plates to cozy up to.

I’m a naturally shy person. I’d never call myself witty (or a wordsmith) and I’m certainly not someone who can enter a room and know how to easily chat up strangers. Nope, that’s not me. I’m quiet and socially awkward and nervous. Maybe that makes me insecure or maybe it makes me endearing? Either way it’s me and I’ve gotta to work with what I’ve got. That’s not to say I don’t push myself to step outside my comfort zone. I can recall a specific time when a dear friend (who is equally shy) and I made a pact before entering an event: We would not stand behind a glass wall all night. Today I can proudly say EyeSwoon has shattered my glass wall. So even though I still get butterflies in my belly every time I have the opportunity to cook with a designer, chef or influencer who I admire, I remind myself to use what I love, FOOD, as they grand unifier. It’s the thing that levels the playing field and it’s something I always approach with passion and confidence.
When Jessica Hendricks graduated from New York University, she found herself in Cambodia, a Buddhist country located in the Southeast region of Asia. Upon traveling to Ankor Wat, an exquisite site filled with ancient Buddhist and Hindu temples, Jessica learned about the infamous 1970s genocide. She also came by Nicholas Kristof’s novel Half The Sky, which mainly explores the alarming worldwide issue of human trafficking—Cambodia being one the places where modern-day slavery still exists and targets young females. Inspired by Cambodia’s history and its current issues, Jessica created The Brave Collection—a line of jewelry handmade in Cambodia by local and talented artisans.
