Engagement Ring Eye Candy: A Pop of Pink

On Wednesdays, we wear pink. And if you have a rose gold accented engagement ring then you get to wear pink every day. A privilege and a pleasure. And with major engagement ring designers like Verragio churning out fabulous rose gold engagement rings left and right, you have options, ladies. Another brand that RLJ carries that I’m smitten with, Uneek, does something similar. You can order any of their settings in rose, rose and white, or white, yellow or a two tone combination of white and yellow. I have to say that with these modern designs my favorite option is Read More →

Thirsty Thursday: Cherry Moscow Mules, Diamonds, and Murder Most Foul

So, I jumped onto this bandwagon as it was careening away into popularity. I hiked up my hoop skirt (prepare for Oregon Trail/Little House on The Prairie imagery), grabbed a hold of the back of the wagon as it forded what I imagine was a very slow moving river, and now lord it over all of my uninitiated friends. I am a Serial-addicted hipster. Though can you be a hipster if you refuse crop tops, wear Uggs unironically, and first heard about the world’s hottest podcast on a gossip column? Probably not. But I’m head over heels, listen to all Read More →

Engagement Ring Eye Candy

It’s time for another rousing rendition of engagement ring eye candy! And today I’ve rounded up a nice mix of unsigned beauties and some new Uneek engagement rings. I wanted desperately to show off this beauty today, but it sold the instant we put it on the showroom floor. But no worries, RLJ has ple-henty more gorgeous rings to knock your socks off. Starting, as I like to do, with some new fancy yellow engagement rings. This cut cornered square radiant cut diamond is a beauty, with a Fancy Yellow VS1 grade from EGL and weighing in at 1.64 carats. Read More →

Friday Faves: Pretty Cookie Heavy Today

My favorite gossip blogger is handicapping the “race” for People’s Sexiest Man Alive. I still haven’t gotten over the year that was non-Gosling, but I’m very much looking forward to reading her in-depth arguments for and against the front runners. Even though I agree with her unwavering prediction, it’s fun to break down the other contenders’ pro/cons. It’s Always Sunny’s latest season is now on Netflix (and Hulu, which never happens) so I know what I’ll be baking treats to on Sunday. Love the very scientific explanation of this recipe too. And yeah, after that I’ll probably need to rinse Read More →

Thirsty Thursday: Purple People Eater

Well, it’s happy hour, despite what the foreboding snow clouds outside my window are saying. For a transplanted Floridian, you need to forgive me, but the phrase “Happy Hour” still conjures images of swaying palm trees, an ocean breeze (or ripples in the pool at The Colony), and wedges and a sun dress. So while faux fur vests are incredibly adorable and cabernet (along with its warming effect) is, indeed, my grown up beverage of choice, happy hour by a fireplace still feels weird. Especially in the week leading up to the day we honor prints, sunshine and white after Read More →
