Easy Breezy Beautiful Necklace
Spa-RINNG has finally arrived on Long Island, and I’m back to my cherished beach runs/walks/limps and scheduling a few outdoor appearances, “Because that’s what we do in New York” .
It was a particularly bad winter weatherwise here. How can you tell? The first clue is I barely even used my gym membership and opted instead to use the treadmill in my basement. I know what you’re thinking…B..O..R..I..N..G , but no, since I can talk on the phone, tweet, and check my email, Facebook and listen to music on my iPhone, it’s really not so bad. Plus, let’s face it, I am easily amused. And I don’t have to listen to the guy coughing like he’s about ready to lose a lung on the machine next to me like at the Gym. A girl has standards. Geez.
Mommy and Me Bags. "How cute are THESE?!"
The second clue is that I really made a ton of jewelry, for you guys, much of which is on my website. I will be selling out of my usual stores in Long Island (actually will be adding more stores shortly) and, just for fun, in person in beautiful Long Beach NY at this event one Sunday out of each month. The first date is May 23. I love to meet my customers in person, and answer that all important question Does this look good on me? - so please come down for a great day at the beach, and wonderful artwork of all kinds.
The third and last clue is that after giving my credit a card a breather, I am now taking it out of deep freeze and picking up a few must-have items. I just had a custom tote made by Antique Basket Lady in a cute Parisian print, and I’ll show it to you once it arrives. She is the mastermind behind these adorable Mommy and Me bags pictured.
Amitie Cards By Garden 22 Design
Spring is also a great time to start new projects and I’m pleased to announce I will be spewing style tips in yet another venue, Le Herald de Paris. Le Herald is an international publication, and I’d be lying like a dog if I said I was any less than giddy at this prospect. Yes, giddy is really the only word to describe how I feel about this. : ) Giddy, Giddy Giddy. I am currently talking with the publisher, Jes Alexander, who, by the way, just published a great book, The Holly Brown Chronicles, which is getting great reviews, to figure out when this advice spewing will commence. Speaking of Paris, how cool are these handstamped cards by Garden 22 Designs, eh? C’est Vrai? OUI!
As far as jewelry goes, you’ll be happy to hear I am using some really pretty new stones and metal findings now and am more inspired than ever. Here is a pair of earrings I am particularly happy with. It’s always fun when you make something that you feel really “nails” what your own personal style is, and these earrings definitely do that for me.
And, in case you haven’t caught it, I am the resident fashionista on The Film Ladd Radio show each and every Wednesday at about 4:15 EST. I’m having lots of fun chatting with Ladd about a wide variety of style related conundrums and I will have files from those shows available to download in the near future. There is a chatroom associated with the show while it is ongoing that’s really hilarious, by the way. Stop in and ask me questions!
