Vanessa Mooney

Monday, September 1, 2014


I first became aware or Vanessa Mooney's jewelry from Kendi Everyday - that woman has an awesome necklace collection. I've since bought two Vanessa Mooney necklaces that I wear all the time. The one featured above is doubly special because it can be worn two ways - gold side facing up or turquoise side facing up. 

One of the things I like most about Vanessa's necklaces are their long length. The length of the necklaces makes them ideal to wear with tunics and dresses. 

I'm very thankful to Kendi for opening my eyes to the wonderful world of Vanessa Mooney jewelry!

Studded Sweatshirt

Thursday, August 28, 2014


I was actually tempted to spend 250 dollars on a sweatshirt - I'm a sucker for anything studded. Thankfully, I remembered that Forever 21 makes imitation pieces like nobody's business. I did a quick "studded sweatshirt" search on Forever 21.com and I made a 30 dollar purchase - 220 dollars cheaper than my original impulse.

That's a great save.

Thank you Forever 21 for sparing my bank account from a massive withdrawal.

 One of my best friends is getting married! It's hard to believe that someone I played tennis with as a 12 year old is getting hitched. 

As a bridesmaid (so honored) we were tasked with pinning different ideas to some wedding pinterest boards. My natural instinct was to pin anything Harry Potter related. Well, not surprisingly, my friend chose to have a Harry Potter themed engagement party! I say not surprisingly because several years ago the two of us took a special trip to Harry Potter World for the DVD release of the last movie. Needless to say, she is as obsessed with Harry Potter as I am - well, maybe not as obsessed. 

This gathering was truly spectacular. Her family, and the groom's family, put together the most beautiful party. The event was chock-full of little Harry Potter details - sorting hat caramels and butterbeer cupcakes to name a few examples. 

It was a magical night.
