Everyday Jewelry

Fine jewelry is something fairly new to me. I got into it when shopping for my engagement and wedding rings and was immediately hooked. I love the idea of jewelry that you can live with; wash your hands with it on, sleep, shower, and exercise with it on. It's a constant accessory and becomes so much more personal that way. It also becomes something you don't have to think about. For someone who spends about 15 minutes from the shower to the door, that's everything. 

Finding LA jewelry designer Vrai & Oro has been key in allowing me to gradually upgrade my jewelry wardrobe. They offer classic, well made designs without the markups. From rings to earrings to diamond necklaces, there's something for every occasion. My current favorite are their skinny stacking rings. At $50 each, it's a great go-to gift for people who don't know what to get me. I just can't get enough of them!

I switched out my tiny gold studs for these mini hoops a few months ago and I'm still obsessed. They add the perfect amount of sparkle and are completely weightless.

This sweet initial pinky ring is the latest addition to my collection. It's the perfect personal gift for a friend or for yourself.

December Favorites

For me, this winter has been all about staying hydrated and finding ways to feel pretty despite the frigid temps. Here in New York it's been 15 degrees every day since Christmas and it's projected to stay that way for another week. Feeling cute has never been harder. 

Luckily I have a few new products in my arsenal that have been making it a little easier. 

Necklace:  Maria Pascual , Face Oil:  Fig & Yarrow , Rings:  Icarus + Co  and  Vrai & Oro , Hair Powder:  R+Co

Necklace: Maria Pascual, Face Oil: Fig & Yarrow, Rings: Icarus + Co and Vrai & Oro, Hair Powder: R+Co

Simple jewelry can make a big difference about how you feel. Lately I've been loving signature items that I can wear every day with every outfit. A coin necklace, stacking rings, and these little hoop earrings have been on repeat this month. 

My hair is a constant struggle. It's fine, heavily bleached, and soaked with sweat just about every day from exercise. I never thought I had the type of hair that could go days without washing but this hair powder from R+Co has made it possible. In fact I almost like my hair better on day 2!

Last year during a cold snap in February I broke out in a horrible red rash all over my face. My dermatologist solemnly told me I had rosacea (!!!) and prescribed me a litany of cleaners and topical ointments. After not loving my skin despite months of this new regimen, I went back to my favorite Biologique Recherche products. This winter, I'm determined to keep my skin hydrated and this face oil has been helping a ton these last few weeks. My skin seems happy and healthy despite the daily exposure to cold and wind.
