All that glitters

I am loving the feminine, dainty yet edgy rings that are currently in style, and i need to update my collection, stat!  i love how jewelry can be such an indicator of individual style - it's so fun to find something unique that not many other people will have (i like to call those my leading lady pieces...you know how ...

Style Crush: Ulla Johnson

Saturday was 70 and sunny and gave us midwesterners a glorious taste of warm weather.

My favorites are The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom and The Royal Tenenbaums, and The ...

I try to stay busy, but it is easy to get in a rut after months of below freezing temps and one of the snowiest winters on record. I am definitely ...
