I Picked Out My Dream Engagement Ring at Kay

Screen shot 2014-03-27 at 6.30.33 PMKay Jewelers has always been one of my favorite places for jewelry. I love their selection of rings, necklaces, watches, bracelets, earrings, and pendants.

I’m incredibly picky about engagement rings. This is an important piece of jewelry that I hope to wear forever, so I want to make sure mine is something that I’m completely in love with.

This is the one that I found that I can’t get enough of. I think it’s the perfect size, is right in our price range and budget, and is something that I could see myself wearing forever.

If you’re in the market for a ring and you don’t see what you’re looking for, you can also do a custom-designed ring that matches your taste and likes. You can pick from different settings and choose your own diamond, picking the shape, size and clarity.

Amazing Anniversary Gifts at RedEnvelope

blog-anniversaryAn anniversary is something to celebrate. Not every couple can withstand the test of time, and “these days” not every couple lasts as long as they used to. Anniversary gifts can be given to one another, or to another couple to celebrate their success together.

My favorite anniversary gift I’ve received was a gorgeous right hand diamond ring. It was very simple but definitely something that I cherish.

I found some great anniversary gifts at RedEnvelope, which is a place I love to go for gifts for all occasions. I found this adorable personalized famous couples pillow cover. It can be personalized with two names, which are highlighted by having them a different colored font. This would be a great anniversary gift for friends or family members who are celebrating being together for an amount of time–whether it’s two years or twenty, it’s something to celebrate and cherish!

Family Jewelry Makes a Great Mother’s Day Gift

blog-fam jewelry


Mother’s Day is coming up in a couple of months. I love this holiday dedicated to celebrating how great moms are. My mom does so much for me and I love having the opportunity to officially thank her and show her appreciation (although this is something that should definitely be done all year round).

I really like the idea of getting family jewelry for Mother’s Day. Zales has a great selection of both unique and traditional rings, necklaces, and bracelets that have kids’ names, initials, birthstones or a combination. These are reasonably priced (it helps that they’re having a sale right now so you can save big!). You can shop online or find a store near you. Your mom will love this! It would also make a great birthday gift.

These Personalized Rings Make Great Gifts for a Wedding Party



Happy New Year to all of my wonderful readers our there. I hope you had a fantastic time bringing in the New Year and are starting off the year 2014 happy and healthy!

I spent the majority of my day on the couch relaxing and trying to recover from staying up a little too late last night. We had people over last night and I’m not used to being up too far past 10 pm!

Laying on the couch gave me plenty of time to do one of my favorite activities: online shopping! I went on Etsy first in search of some personalized gifts for the bride and groom to get their wedding party for a wedding that I am helping to plan. I really like these sterling silver personalized rings and think that the bridesmaids in the wedding would love them! They’re unique and I love the fact that you can personalize them.
