Holiday Gifts at Bloomingdales Friends and Family Sale



Lots of people think that the day after Thanksgiving is the best day to shop for holiday gifts, but they couldnt be more wrong. The best time to shop for Christmas gifts and decor is actually before Thanksgiving. In fact the 2 weeks prior, are the best deals and selection you will find before all the other sale stalkers grab all the good stuff and leave you with the scraps. Yep, this is true and must be because they reported it on Good Morning America, and I LOVE Good Morning America, so I'm standing behind it:)

The above festive treasures are all a whopping 20% off right now! Use the code holiday on or before November 16th to get some great gifts or holiday decor before the prices go back up!

Appreciating Life and the Smalll Things

My new cell phone case...no it's not an iPhone 5, but everyone comments on this cool design from Nasty Gal

This fall arrangement I did over the weekend...orange hued roses look awesome with fall florals.
This asymmetrical necklace I made a while back...
A Fall brunch at my place with friends...setting a pretty table always brings me joy, (Do I sound like a mom yet?)
And here is as I like to call it my Glam-Pumpkin...metallic and shiny just the way I like my jewelry.

Posting some happy things to reflect on this monday because...

Sadly, I got some news that an old high school friend passed away.  Our friendship actually started in middle school, when I was pimply and awkward and afraid of talking to boys. He was one of the only people who was nice to me when I was starting off that first year in a new school (12 year old girls can be mean and nasty) and he was always a source of comfort to me that year. 

Even in the years after when I had come into my own and the awkwardness subsided, I still felt such a great feeling a warmth when we were together. Sadly, I moved away and our only contact was on Facebook where even there, he left friendly comments that were always so genuine and made me smile. Funny, after so many years and seemingly lifetimes away from each other, I still feel like I lost a good friend. 

Hope your week goes well, that you appreciate all the good things in life and gloss over the small stuff that troubles you. Because the only small things in life you should focus on, are the ones that make you happy:)

This Holiday


This holiday, I'm all about shimmery basics with great accessories. This Clutch is so unique and cool...I have a black one in this style and can't get enough of it. It's called the Lunchbox Clutch and the shiny silver color will go great with all my holiday outfits:)

A "Perfect" Look


I dont know about you guys, but this week has been super busy.  I've been running around trying to get everything tackled on my to do list. The problem is I have too much on there and noone except myself is pressuring me to get any of it done. 

Apparently, I'm a perfectionist. Who knew? I am not one to be overly organized, or return calls or emails in a timely manner so it makes no sense. I'm so not the stereotypical type A at all, but I do place a lot of importance on certain things and I seem to fixate on them so much more than necessary.  

I happen to like that I'm type A about fashion though. Even though it's far from the most important thing in life, it makes me feel in control and accomplished when I put together a look I love. The above board is one of those:)

Tassle Necklaces and L.A. Fall Fashion




Just a quick post of a recent favorite necklace of mine. The necklace contains that kind of stone that just slightly takes on the color of the outfit you happen to be wearing. It also has some spiritually healing uses if your into that sort of thing.

It is made of moonstone which " is a stone of perceiving beyond the veil" (source). Which basically means it helps one to see past 
face value. I think we all could use a bit of help in that department sometimes:)

I'm all for a multi-tasking necklace:)

Fall weekends are the BEST! I love the chill in the air and the feeling of being cozy in my warm sweater and boots. We have a lot planned this fall and this weekend is no exception. 

I'm planning on making these pumpkin pancakes...

We are planning to spend one day at Disneyland with our little boy. I've heard its a beautiful time of year to go, the crowds are a bit lighter and just walking through the park seeing all the fall decor is fun.

And, I'm planning on spending one lazy morning taking advantage of the Kate Spade Friends and Family Sale. It's 30% off EVERYTHING including this Bow Sweater which is seriously  calling my name. Enter F14FFUS at checkout. 

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Black White and a Drop of Pink





Pants (Rag & Bone)//Tank (Current Elliot)//Bag (Gucci)//Bracelet (Mimi Jay)// Necklace (Mimi Jay)

Wearing pink is not always something I'm comfortable with...but I'm finding that pink accessories or rose gold jewelry helps sweeten up an edgier outfit for day time wear. 

I'm also experimenting with more delicate jewelry...
I'm finding that layering delicate necklaces is a great way to accessorise or I wear one sweet necklace alone when wearing an outfit that requires little jewelry. Both the Necklace and the Bracelet are my designs.

Wish Listed: Fall transition Pieces/Fall Fashion Trends


Greetings fellow shoppers!  I've been super busy creating my newest jewelry line lately as well as keeping up with all my etsy creations, but I have not lost my need to just veg out in front of the computer and cyber shop. 

I put the little monkey (my sweet 2 year old boy) to bed, and I let my brain kind of go into a no think zone while I stare at images of beautiful things. Some people have tv shows, some people drink to excess. I am addicted to fashion porn. So I leave you with my current lusts above: Pieces that transition well into Falls crispy, finicky weather that is warm during the day and quite chilly at night. How great would that jacket be worn over the maroon jumpsuit?

Layering a Top over a Tank Dress : Fall Clothing Ideas



Top C Wonder//Necklace Mimi Jay//Dress Three Dots//Booties (Similar)//Bag Gucci

Today I took a boring old sleeveless dress and threw this shirt from C Wonder over it for a more fall feeling look. I'm so ready for fall pumpkins, and apples, and turkeys and all the wonderful smells of Fall. I can't wait for it to get cold. Although its nice and breezy out, its not quite crisp yet. 

My sweet baby boy is in school half days now, so I've been busy with my jewelry line, driving to the diamond district, and I'm not gonna lie, I've been busy doing random little things I used to take for granted, like going to the bookstore or enjoying a few moments of silence (I actually downloaded a meditation app called "Simply Being" that is pretty awesome). I've done it twice at 10 minute intervals and it seems to clear my head and give me some much needed energy.
