Quick Roundup – Confetti means TGIF!

Let’s go ahead and squeeze on in here with a quick (quick) wekend round up. because yes, it is Friday at5pm, and yes, some of you are off to nice concerts and hot date nights, but trust me, you’ll thank me tomorrow when you’re all “But what should I wear today?” This.

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.

Ring stacks are exactly the same way (except for the leg shaving). Now that this trend has officially reached saturation, its devotees and late-adopters alike are all “This is awesome.” So no, I don’t think the ring stack is going anywhere for the foreseeable future. Further proof, the ring stack phenomenon has infiltrated bridaly jewelry, Read More →
