Waiting for the cable guy, so now seems as good a time as any to get this blog running again...
Since the place isn't all unpacked yet I can't post many pictures. I refuse to let the Internet see what is currently the mess called my home. I can, however, show you three things:
1. My first proper outfit in the new apartment (Jacket that I love so very much from H&M; Diesel Jeans; Black clutch and my emerald ring):
On Sunday, after everything was settled as much as we could deal with settling it, we went out to dinner and saw Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The food and movie were both decent; it was more the whole getting-out-of-the-house thing that did wonders for the demeanor.
2. Now that my cats have their own room, we never see them. (This apartment came with a third bedroom for a baby, and our babies happen to be covered in fur. Don't make this weird, people.) Example A of what they do in their room all day:
3. I finally got out for some flowers yesterday and set up a table that's in front of the living room window, which looks out onto the awesome field of green that is Astoria Park:
And now for some jewelry! Can I even still do this? I feel like it's been forever since a proper post went up around these parts.
Anne Maa is killing me with her gorgeous new designs, this ring being one of them.
Copper Rutilated Quartz Ring, $242
Life Flower Post Earrings by Junedesigns, $15
Gabriela Artigas Copper Leaf and Metal Chain Necklace, $176
I also did want to mention that commentor "For the love of Jewels" aka Sally Jewett-Brocato has extended a very kind offer to readers of this blog... 15% off any purchase from her lovely jewelry store Naked Jewelry. Some of her intricate, handmade wares that I particularly like:
Green Garnet Bracelet with leather tie, $45
Pearl and Peridot Necklace, $95
Remember Mother's Day is fast approaching! If your mom is anything like my mom, well, you are very lucky because my mom is awesome, but also! She will love jewelry! In the past I've mentioned the healing properties of stones, which I'm very keen on because really, any further reason to wear jewelry? Totally my bag. Anyhow, Sally includes notes on what the stones are all about. She also makes custom pieces.
Note: This isn't a paid advertisement or anything. I just think it's important to support independent artists, and it doesn't hurt that I like the jewelry.
