Must Have | Pops of Color…Firecracker anyone?

I received so many compliments on this yesterday that I think I definitely need to wear red more often! =) I love the true red color of both the shirt and my necklace. I normally do not like to be so matchy-matchy but for some reason this just worked for me. I paired the Firecracker necklace with the Companions earrings and the Monte Carlo cuff bracelet.

As far as the rest of my outfit, I paired this pop of color red top with dark denim jeans and my fun Target shoes. I have realized that my wardrobe choices varies depending on where I’m working. Right now I work at a managed service IT company. That means we can host your entire network with virtual machines at our datacenter so you don’t have the expense of buying all sorts of cumbersome costly machines, or we can filter your emails so that you don’t have all of that junky spam clogging up your inbox. I work in the purchasing department wait, let me rephrase that. I AM the purchasing department. So, not only do I get to spend other people’s money all day long, but I also have to lug it into the storage room. Not so glamorous when you’re all cute wearing a cute summery dress and cute heels.

I’m still working on bridging the gap between cute, comfortable and functional. Any suggestions are most welcome!

What’s your favorite pop of color? Oh, and have you seen my Giveaway? If not, check it out. It’s super easy to enter and you could be the winner of a great piece of jewelry.

Giveaway Time | Gold Dust Cuff


So, it’s summer time and I know a lot of you are looking for cool, breezy dresses to help stay cool in these hot summer months. What’s better to accessorize with than that unique, cuff bracelet. Cuff bracelets are great no matter your wrist size. If you have a smaller wrist, you can wear it and push it up a little higher on your are and if you feel that you have a larger sized wrist, then don’t worry. You can wear this with ease since there are no clasps or hinges to get in the way.

I’m giving away this really great cuff. It’s called Gold Dust. I love this one! This is no longer in our catalog to purchase so this truly is a unique piece. This would look awesome with a chocolate-brown maxi dress with either a khaki shrug or maybe a denim jacket over it or even with a tee shirt, capri’s and some cute strappy sandals.

Either way, this is my new giveaway so….here’s what you have to do to enter:

1-Leave me a comment on my blog telling me how you would wear this bracelet.

2-Leave me a comment telling me how you follow me (ie Facebook, Twitter etc). You will receive one entry for each way that you follow me.

3-Like my Facebook page at: and leave me a comment on there saying that you are a new follower.

4-Share this giveaway with others and have them leave comments (either on this blog, my Facebook page or both!) with your name as a referer.

Easy enough, right?!?!?

This Giveaway is good until June 30th at 5pm EST. I’ll select the winner and notify them accordingly.

I hope you all love this as much as I do. Now…go…and enter!


Jewelry Trends | CMA Awards

I don’t know if you tuned in to the CMA award show last Wednesday, but I sure did! I always like to see what everyone was wearing and the jewelry that they chose, as well.  I was so happy that Miranda Lambert was the belle of the ball and won so many awards! It was super sweet to see her and Blake Shelton so happy and supportive of each other. Miranda Lambert’s cuff bracelets positively sparkled — perfect for her high energy live performance. Jennifer Nettles’ asymmetrical black and blue earrings were very unique and looked fantastic with her shimmery gown. These earrings actually had a stone in the middle set surrounded by sparkling blue gems.
Taylor Swift’s leaf earrings, blackened platinum set with diamonds, were stunning and unexpected. And I’m sure lots of you will like Katie Cook’s trendy snake chain bracelet. It’s a nice chunky size but not too large for her wrist.
Which trend is your favorite?
