So today, Cole and I went to the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia. I actually hadn't even heard of it before we found out his field trip was there - but it's a neat little museum right in the Olde City section of Philadelphia. It's dedicated to the education of America's heritage and mission towards freedom & liberty. I wasn't expecting … [Read more...]

A couple of weeks ago, a Facebook ad for these bracelets from My Intent caught my eye. Yep, the marketing folks at My Intent did a little fist pump as my click through turned into a purchase because I loved the book and concept behind this jewelry and ended up buying two bracelets right away.

Blee Inara sent me the brown & gold one and it's … [Read more...]

My latest jewlery obsession is with cuff & wrap bracelets. I can't seem to get enough of them - I keep buying and stacking them on my wrist. Love the look! Such a staple, easy way to jazz up a look and I find I'm more of a bracelet girl than a necklace one when it comes to a quick out-the-door jewelry grab. So for today's Fashion Friday I … [Read more...]

Recently, I had to research a style piece for jewelry trends for the spring and summer.  The overwhelming consensus with those "in the know" with fashion trends was that colored or colorful jewelry (and bold) is going to be the trend in the coming months. Why not get a jump start on the spring with some of these colorful pieces of jewelry?  If … [Read more...]

Saw this knobbed necklace holder on Pinterest and noticed the seller has a whole shop of doing these - you can design your own or pick one she has for sale. Love it, right?  I'm thinking of getting one - just have to figure out a wall to put this on.  All of my necklaces always get tangled up in my jewelry box so this would definitely help … [Read more...]

Share your story with a charming selection of sterling silver beads and charms from Bellabeads 925.  This direct sales company works like a Tastefully Simple company - consultants rep the brand and you can buy directly from the sales consultants.
