Setting the Mood: Baby, There’s a Shark in the Water

By |August 13th, 2012|Setting the Mood|

skarksSo apparently it’s everyone’s (except for me) favorite week.  What week is that you may ask?  Oh, just Shark Week.  Why sharks are so intriguing to the general population, I will never completely understand.  I don’t see why we don’t have something like “Koala Bear Week” instead.  Full disclosure:  I have no interest in sharks.  They scare me  and you aren’t going to find me in a shark cage anytime this century.  I’m not even going to lie- just looking up these pictures of sharks made me nervous.  But, I aim to please so strap on your scuba tank, churn up the chum, and keep your eyes peeled for Jaws… ’cause I’m getting involved in Shark Week the only way I know how: with some “shark-cessories.”  (I just made that up).

Why Did You Wear That: Let’s Rock

By |June 5th, 2012|Why Did You Wear That?|

nina nguyen necklaceIt’s true.  Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.  However, in the off chance that you aren’t dripping in them or perhaps, you’ve decided to give yours a day off, there are some other stones out there that are sure to add a bit of unexpected glamour to your get up.  Take a cue from your college requirement filling geology course.  That’s right, geodes and nature’s minerals are the new rocks you should be rocking.

I recently bought a Nina Nguyen necklace on Hautelook and it’s been a fan favorite with friends and family.  These gems make for great (and somewhat) affordable gifts as well.  Hey, they’re cheaper than diamonds… but just as pretty.
