Friday Faves: Sayonara September

  I have so much awesome Fall tv to watch but my Netflix and Hulu queue are still overflowing. And yet, seeing these Lucille Bluth motivational posters makes me want to give it all up and just rematch Arrested Development. Again. I need to make this salad, stat. Might eat it every single day next week, no judgement. I need to do this.

Hot Engagement Ring Trend: The Square Halo Engagement Ring

The square halo engagement ring is taking the bridal world by storm. It’s the perfect combination of the classic round brilliant diamond and the trendy cushion cut silhouette. The square halo of diamonds surrounding the round brilliant center stone makes the ring look cushion cut, but it’s not – so really it makes everyone look twice. It’s no doubt a head turner.

Thirsty Thursday: Lollipop + Lemon Drop + Lime Coat

Whew, today’s happy hour is a doozy. I’m mixing lemon and lime with my favorite lollipop flavor – Ippolita. Ippolita is having a moment, and arguably started off the slice jewelry trend a few years ago. We still aren’t purchasing many pieces from their Lollipop collections, and that means it’s still hot hot hot – typically I’ll start noticing more and more of a certain style or “it piece” in the showcases as its popularity wanes and the owners sell to RLJ or come in to trade for something new. So current Ippolita pieces are diamonds in the rough at RLJ. Read More →

Friday Favorites: Fall Birthday Edition

My new desktop – Does anyone else constantly make their desktop background something ridiculous? I feel like I’m forever clicking “save image as” but missing and accidentally making my background a giant grainy picture of some fabulous jewelry piece I’m writing about. Ugh, I need a mousepad. How perfect is this dish? I figure we have a few more weeks of grill-conducive weather in Chicago, these are on the list. I love love love! When Becky does these Treat Yo’ Self features. And this week, everything is pink! Fashion Week is here. I used to get tres tres excited about Fashion Read More →
