A Few of My Favorite Things

I was asked to guest post on a friends blog and I wanted to share with my readers a few of my favorite things. I hope that this is the first of many guest posts. Let me know what you think!

Statement Necklaces


This is one, rather two, pieces of my current collection. For those of you that have not visited my blog previously, let me explain. I have been an Independent Consultant with Premier Designs for 7-1/2 years. I LOVE this job! I get to meet some really great ladies, have fun while showing off jewelry AND give it away free to Hostesses. It really is a great deal. This ensemble above is really our Global necklace with the new Golden Girl brooch/pin. Yes, that’s right a brooch. It has a magnetic bale on the back too so that you can flip it over the top of a chain or necklace you may already have and it’s got the ability to be worn on a denim jacket for instance, as a pin. I love convertible jewelry!

Cocktail Rings


The Traditions ring is another new item from our Fall catalog. I know that I should remain neutral where jewelry is concerned but it’s really difficult. I wear my product every day and since Premier Designs does not do any advertisement, I rely on myself to act as a walking billboard. So, in light of that, I try to wear all of the bold, fun pieces that my jewelry line offers. This is a great and attractive piece. I really enjoy the fact that I can wear it casually with a tank and denim capri’s or dress it up with a fun top, dress pants and really fun brown crocodile pumps. Either way is a winner in my book!

Monogrammed…ANYTHING!



I love monogrammed…well anything really. I see monogrammed mugs, purses, keychain and now I’m even seeing people with their monogrammed initials on their cars. I have to admit, I’m halfway tempted to follow suit. I’m not too much of a follower so I’m really trying to determine if I’m doing it just to be like everyone else or if I really want to put those stickers on my car for another reason. Either way, i don’t care. I love initial jewelry, monogrammed lunch bags (yes I have one of those too) and even organizers with catch phrases. The picture above is a jewelry roll from Thirty One. I bought it before I went on a trip to Texas to see the brand new line of Premier Designs jewelry.  I do try to support other direct sales companies when I can and it just so happens that Thirty One has enough of a variety of fun purses, totes and storage containers, that I’ve been able to feed this monogramming addiction.

Plum Polish


This plum polish is HEAVEN in my book. I used to only wear bright reds, pinks and oranges. Well, that was back in high school. Then I wore nothing but clear or sheer shades. Now, I seem to be drawn to the darker shades. This Zoya plum shade in Mikka is fast becoming a favorite of mine. I love the silver hologrammed streaks in it and when this is applied it really is a beautiful shade. Not daring to wear this dark color on your nails, then start on your toes and work your way up to it.  I’ve noticed that I tend to stick to lighter nail colors during the summer time and then gravitate towards the darker ones in the winter time.

Last but not least….

Magic in a Bottle

This little bottle is amazing. I love this stuff. It’s a great way to smooth out all of the fine lines that we tend to get as we get older. I tried a more expensive version of this product and found it to be a great addition to my make-up bag. You could imagine my surprise when I found this at a much more affordable price. I’ve been using it for a few months and plan to do so for many months to come.

Those are just a few of my favorite things. Did you see anything on my list that you might try out yourself? If so, leave me a note and let me know what you think!

In friendship and style…
