Peace on Earth, Just Not on My Purse

This is the second time I have gotten this purse as the feature in an email advertisement. I love the purse, but not a fan of the peace signs. Honestly, I don’t understand the big deal about this purse. This designer seems to put them on everything--so maybe that’s his thing. Or maybe I’m getting old, but peace signs remind me of when I was 10 years old and thought it was cool to sign letters with the peace sign and my name. So, needless to say, I will not be purchasing any peace signs to go on my designer purse. (Those peace signs I drew were free, these are $415).

Itsy Etsy

I thought these were unique place card holders. Kinda wood-y and girl-ish at the same time.

I love you, I love you not.

I saw this purse in the Forum Shops in Vegas. It was in the window, and I totally had a "Hello, Lover" moment. I really and truly was going to purchase this purse. It is so beautiful. I actually had to sit down and remind myself that I didn't need that purse. And I should leave the mall. Immediately. I decided to go into Dolce and Gabbana instead. But at least I can say, I have a crush.

Really Ruehls

I have recently been perusing this site and have found a few things I actually like. It is one of the companies with Abercrombie and Hollister, which are completely over-priced for the product you get. So, I was a bit skeptical when looking at this site. I haven't bought anything yet, but I can tell you I was looking at a cami at 10am, and when I went back to look at 6pm, all of the sizes were gone except Large. (Apparently I'm not the only one perusing this site). The only things I feel comfortable buying would be sweaters, tops, and some accessories. Everything else seems to the usual over-priced items that Abercrombie carries. The other thing I am not sure about is the sizing. You know when you try on clothes at AF, they are super-succulently tight? Well, I'm not really going for that look these days, so I can't really say I would want to purchase a Small and it's really an XXS. I'll let you know how it goes--if I can purchase something before it's gone!! ruehl.com

The Right to a Right-Handed Ring

Right-hand rings. This is something a woman starts to think about as she realizes "I want to buy something for myself". Something she can say, "Yep, I bought this because I can."

I think my time to do this will happen sometime soon. It is like a crossroads in life. A crossroads of jewelry. I recently found the most beautiful ring in a David Yurman store. I looked online, but don't really see the exact ring that I found, but it is similar (first one shown below). The one in the store seemed to be a bit longer (so that it fell closer to my knuckle, it was almost double in size of the one online). This picture doesn't really do it justice. However, the sparkling lights in the store did! I really like the antique gold with the diamonds. It has "classic" written all over it! Here are some others rings I like that could possibly fall rightly on my right-hand.

Tiffany ring 2
Tiffany ring again 3--not sure about this one, would definitely have to try it on in a store. I do like the color.

Ok, I am going to stop now. These are so gorgeous! I will have a big decision to make for my little finger some time soon!
