Last Call! Raymond Lee Jewelers Free Halo Diamond Ring!

While this evening means only one thing to me and my several thousand dozen Twitter followers, it means something entirely different to one lucky contestant. That’s right, weeks of dealing with Man Scarves, Nick V’s eyebrows, the drinking word “Staaahp” and its ensuing reminder(s) that there aren’t enough #DateNightHair commercials to use as wine intermissions….it was all worth it friends. Tonight, Andi will decide to whom she’ll give her final rose, and we can all expect an epic limo meltdown from the rejected dude. Then at long last hopefully they’ll freakin’ finally announce Farmer Chris as The Bachelor. Not to mention Read More →

Surprise, surprise, I’m back with another fresh batch of fancy yellow engagement ring eye candy! We picked up a whole bunch of loose fancy yellow cushion cut diamonds, and had some fun mounting them in totally different styles – with the exception of the first two. They’re twinsies.

Wine Slushies for an Unexpected Thirsty Thursday

Sometimes, at a certain point in the summer you need to just throw your hands into the air and make a wine slushie. We have arrived, friends. 7/11 free slurpee day came, went, and left me feeling incomplete, probably because those slurps just don’t satisfy the Thirsty Thursday criteria. Specifically, those slurpee slushies are neither boozy nor fabulous. And while many may cast aspersions on rose, it’s quickly become this summer’s (um, and every summer’s) break out hit. Rappers and Tumblr-ers alike sing its praises. So really, it’s back, and it’s ok to drink fashionable again. But if you really Read More →

Buying an Engagement Ring vs. Buying a Car

You know something funny? I like to compare purchasing a pre owned luxury watch to buying a car. Just like cars, luxury watches come with a high price tag, especially when you buy them new. And just like cars, watches have a large value depreciation as soon as they leave the authorized dealer. However pre-owned watches already lost that big chunk of change. So purchasing one in excellent condition gets you an investment that will perform just as well as the new one, but that initial depreciation is passed to the new buyer in the form of a lower price.
