Drenched in Wine

I was blessed enough to get to work an amazing photographer Lauren LaBoyteaux on this most recent look. She has such a grand grasp on concept and finding just what I was looking for with this image. I was just so very pleased with the pictures she made from our time together!! Please do check out her awesome webpage and follow her works! :)

More and More give-aways!!!

I am so excited to announce what I consider to be the best give-away I have been able to offer to date! Not only is this give-away worth $74, but also is my all time favorite piece of Merrin&Gussy jewelry! I know I have done a great deal of give-aways -- only because I love my fans that much -- but this most definitely is the coolest piece I have ever had to offer! Okay, enough 'to-do' over it! The item I'm here to offer to all of my wonderful fans is this extraordinarily gorgeous coloured bangle!

blog presentation

Hello Dears!
I know I don't do this often, but it was too good not to share with all of my lovely fans. I was notified that this young lady of the gorgeous blog "strangeness and Charms" was offering this lovely Blog presentation "give-away". Definitely worth a look. :)

Darling, you send me..

This look might be a little silly and not my most styled yet, but since I'm not the most exuberant about valentines day, this was my little attempt. :P
This dress is probably the only pink item of clothing I own...besides one blouse. So, this was definitely out of the box for me -- all pink -- thankfully I had a few touches of black in there to keep me grounded.
During the course of shooting this outfit, I learned that balloons and an east Texas winter just don't get along well. This is probably going to be the first and last time I will shoot a look with balloons. ;)

I do hope you enjoy this look and of course your valentines day! Stay tuned for a sale straight from MY closet and a fantastic give-away!!

First glimpse

I, like most girls, am a big fan of jewelry. However, I am extremely particular about jewelry construction, composition, weight, and so on. I've always been picky about my jewelry; I've never been one to care for inexpensive looking jewelry or pieces that can be found just about anywhere. Until recently, I didn't buy jewelry often since the pieces that were well constructed, creative, and expensive looking, were usually just that--expensive! For years I had just a small collection of jewelry that I had inherited and a few pieces that I had splurged on. Thanks to the internationally famous blogger KolonelMustard (Ben Galbraith) and his fantastic online jewelry company, Merrin&Gussy, my jewelry collection is now pretty extensive. :P
I'm always excited to purchase from Me&G because every item is well made, well priced, and not a single piece has ever disappointed me! I thought I'd spread the love and share some pictures of my all time favorite pieces that I have ordered from Merrin&Gussy -- some from my very first purchase, and some items that I just received, and one piece that hasn't even been seen by the public! ;)
(I'm a pretty lucky girl, I've gotten to call a few pieces mine before they were even listed to be sold!!)

Hopefully you will enjoy these as much as I do because you might just get another chance to win some FANTASTIC pieces coming up soon!! Be sure to check out their website for more amazing accessories for men and women! Also, don't forget about their newest collection of fine jewelry! Definitely something to check out for valentines day, guys.
