Like I had mentioned in my previous blog post…I went shopping this weekend and came away with a small accessory haul from Forever 21. I initially went into the store to look for a military vest (which I was unsuccessful at) and for an umbrella as my last one officially bit the dust and popped inside out for good. Here is what I walked away … Continue reading Weekend Accessory Haul
As I was cleaning out my jewelry box I began to noticed that I have somehow obtained a rather small collection of cameo pieces. Now in general I find that my jewelry tends to lean towards the more romantic, more vintage styles. So I guess it’s only natural that I would be drawn to cameo jewelry. So this week I thought that it would be … Continue reading Cameo Jewelry
While waiting for a good friend to meet me downtown I decided to do a little window shopping. Needless to say “window shopping” turned into “actual purchases”…but I MUST feed my bow obsession. How cute are these little matte gold bows!! And under $3.00 I could totally justify how these would work within my “I am not purchasing anything this month unless I totally need it” … Continue reading Bows and Sunnies!!!
I was just looking at my calendar yesterday and noticed that I am booked up until the end of the month with holiday festivities!

Fact: Etsy is my crack. I can literally spend hours upon hours pursuing that website and not even realize it. I also love the fact that everything on there is primarily handcrafted and homemade. Makes me feel a little better knowing that I am supporting some of the smaller independent businesses out there. Now as of the late my drug of choice has been all … Continue reading Delicate Rings
I would have to say that over 90% of the mail that comes to me is generally a bill. I have actual come to loath my mailbox and I will only go and retrieve its contents every other week. I am pretty sure that our mailman hates us as our mailbox is stuffed to the brim and will barely close. So I was more than … Continue reading Jewelmint Lovely Audrey Earrings
Recently, I have been obsessing over jewelry with raw or uncut stones. Whether it’s delicate raw crystal rings, or geode necklaces or various uncut gem earrings…I WANT IT ALL!!! I recently discovered Etsy.com and have spent numerous hours browsing through all of the beautiful handcrafted jewelry! But I would have to say that the drusy jewelry has mainly captured my attention. For those of you … Continue reading Raw
So my mother called me a few weeks ago asking when I was going to grace her and the rest of my family with my presence and beauty…and I pretty much told her that I would come down when she paid for a first class train ticket to Portland. So here I am sitting in a very comfortable leather chair sipping on a bottle of … Continue reading Train Traveling!
Okay, so this may sound kinda strange…but I am totally in love with this Cartier commercial. I happened across this particular ad when watching some language videos on uTube for class. Now, normally I hate pop up ads…actually loath would be a better word…but this ad was complete perfection!!! Shiny jewels + whimsical worlds + a touch of wanderlust + a beautiful backless red ball gown + a diamond … Continue reading Cartier
In the words of the ever so wise Ms. Britney Spears… “Opps, I did it again.” Okay, I just couldn’t help myself!!! I mean one cannot have to many “bow” like items. :) Here’s to hoping that this weekend will be bow-tastic!! Cheers! -Michelle Continue reading Bow-tastic 3.0
