Friday Favorites: Bright & Gold

So the big work to-do is over with*(see below), temporarily, and it looks like I'll be working from home for a bit. When the headline, "Crazed Long Island Home Worker Kills Two Cats" appears in the local daily, please ignore it. I, of course, adore my cats. And all the little tufts of fur they leave everywhere. Oh! And the charming meows! One sounds like a cow and the other one just sounds pitiable. Oh yes, I can't wait to work at home all day with those two precious mini-bovines. I have vowed two things, and I will keep you updated on the progress here (because I might need some cheerleading):
1. I will go to the gym almost every day on my "lunch hour."
2. I will continue to shower regularly.

And now, folks, on to Friday Favorites!


Pippa Small Chyrsophase and Aquamarine Necklace, $1,400






Kelly Mulloy Wool Felt Cuffs $48




Lisa Cimino Roots Ring, $59 (which reminds me of Pan's Labyrinth in a good way)




Alisha Louise Deco Drop earring, $88

*Sorry for all the cryptic-ness! Basically, the company I work for was sold to a much, much larger company and yesterday I had to meet the owner of said large company. And find out whether or not I still had job. Also, if so, for how long. The kicker is, the sale is taking a really long time, and we have to be out of our office by the end of the month, hence the working from home. Which, really, is fine with me, because when the sale is completed, I will have to work in a corporate graveyard. In Jersey City. Land of drabness.

Wow! What's going on? I think you're lucky to have mini-cows. I've always wanted one. Sorry about the Kenya thing. Whoops!

enc said...

Yes, what's going on, everything is so cryptic!

If you go to the gym, maybe you won't want to kill your cats, the little dears.

Showering is a sucker's bet. That's 15 extra minutes of TV time.

I hope the working from home is awesome and semi-intentional.

Wendy & enc: I updated the circumstances for inquiring minds!

Pistols: I'm kinda anti-social as is, so the awesomeness is questionable (will I remember how to physically form words?), but thank you.

These are all gorgeous. And I said the same thing about showering. I lasted two days.

LML said...

cool ring!

hope u had a lovely valentines day:D

WendyB said...

Oh my! But the Jersey City thing means you still have a job!

Fashion Tidbits said...

i like the root ring..it's very antler-y

Shaz said...

Well just think of working at home as a mini-vacation, with snow falling gentle outside, the fire place crackling and mini-cows mooing..what more could you ask for???

Love the Labyrinth ring by the way :)

Seraphine said...

O I hate office upheavals. My general attitude is leave me alone, I'll do it myself. The less bother from "higher-ups" the better.
Good luck with your job and your mini-mewing bovines.

hannah said...

I love those deco earrings! So gorgeous. My wishlist of earrings is getting too long!

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

I love the colors of the first pendant it reminds me of the ocean!

enc said...

Blimey, Jersey City?! Well, I suppose it may be a wacky location, but I'm glad to hear you still have a job, (as WendyB said).

I went through a "sale" scenario once, and it was a white-knuckle experience. I wish it upon no one.

Thank you for the update!

I love that turquoise colour

pistols at dawn said...

If you're anti-social as well, that sets up a rather comical paradox: we would get along well, except for the fact that what we have in common is not getting along well.

In Yr Fshn said...

Thanks, everyone, for the kind/ supportive words... they mean a lot.

Pistols: Story of my life. But, hey, thank god for blogs, right? They totally eliminate the necessity for real-world social skills!

riz said...

InYr - Ha - I agree with you about blogs! Part of my hyper-real daily life...But Keep keeping on...play some really loud music at the gym!!

Flair said...

Yikes - good luck with things at work. Hope all goes well, those things suck. Oh well, I've always thought working from home would be fun, so you'll have to let me know if it or not.

I really like those felt cuffs for no reason at all.

fashionistakay said...

the felt cuffs are very interesting and unique!
p.s.check out my new post

pistols at dawn said...

I hear that Jersey City also eliminates the need for social skills. But yes, thank god for blogs, and writing over talking.

Pomegranate said...

Wishing you all the best on ur new venture!

Oh and its great to have mini cows at home. I have chicken-dogs. Their bark sounds like a cluck-cluck..

But all's good right?

ambika said...

Wow, I hope everything turns out as you want it to with these new developments. Not having a commute is pretty much my number one priority with jobs so I feel you.

Also, amazing jewelry picks. As always.

Flair said...

OK - I did a post all about flats! Check it out when you can!
