Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”
I am so excited that Spring is on the way and that the weather is starting to warm up. The start of the warm weather always motivates me, whether it’s to visit a farmer’s market, tackle projects around the house, try a different workout, or incorporate new colors and designs into my jewelry (like the fabulous blue in the fiji blue earrings). Basically, the sluggishness of winter goes away and I just get motivated!
I felt like last weekend was the unofficial kick-off of spring because the weather was so great. My sister and her husband were visiting us from Dallas, and we decided to check out a yoga class while the boys hung out. Of course, we couldn’t possibly go to yoga without stocking up on a few items from Lululemon first! I honestly love everything from that store. The clothes are stylish, comfortable, and seem to last forever. And, I’m always inspired by the mantras that are placed around the store.
I picked up these awesome “Flow Crop” pants in very green and paired them with a light violet tank. With my spring-inspired workout outfit ready, it was time to go to yoga!
We went to Y2 yoga and took a class by Jen, who writes Peanut Butter Runner. I am a big fan of her blog and we have collaborated on several giveaways before, but I had never gotten the chance to take her class. Let me tell you, it was awesome! I felt like I got a great workout and the pace forced me to focus and stay “in the moment.” I am by no means a yoga expert, but I’ve started taking classes more frequently lately, and I’ll definitely go back to Jen’s class.
I’m already getting excited for this weekend. Looking forward to a fun girl’s dinner tonight at Napa! I’ll keep
Have a great weekend everyone!
These Earrings were by far the most popular earrings at my last jewelry show! They have a mix of elegance with that laid back lifestyle. The turquoise encased gold gives these earrings a bit of a vintage feel and the turquoise drop reminds us that summer is right around the corner! Th length of these earrings are 1.5″
It’s the beginning of March and time for me to begin gearing up for a new production of Luxe Boxes. So far, I have been really pleased with the results for January and February. Each month, my goal is to mail a beautifully packaged piece of jewelry to Luxe Box subscribers.
But, I am learning that creating the jewelry and wrapping the packages takes a LOT of time. Last month, I was telling a friend of mine that I felt a little overwhelmed trying to get all of the Luxe Boxes in the mail on time, and she asked why I didn’t just simplify the packaging step. After all, she reminded me that the ladies receiving the Luxe Box were more interested in a lovely piece of jewelry than in the packaging. So, I began to reflect on how I’d originally come up with the concept of the Luxe Box.
The Luxe Box combines two of my very favorite things in the world: jewelry (obviously) and the U.S. postal service. Growing up, my Aunt Marlene would send me packages several times a year – for no reason at all. I loved opening the mailbox, finding a package just for me, and anticipating what it contained. I would open the present as slowly as possible just to prolong the excitement of discovering what was inside. The packaging of the gift was just as exciting to me as the present inside. The boxes were covered in glitter and stickers and the gifts were wrapped in hot pink tissue paper. (Keep in mind that, as a six year old, I had a very different concept of what constituted “beautifully packaged” than I do now!). Her surprises were always something unexpected and whimsical, perhaps a set of sparkly pens with my name on the side or puff paints and a t-shirt to decorate.
It is my intention to recreate this experience with every Luxe Box that I mail. I hope that each lady who receives it will feel the thrill of receiving a gift in the mail, excitedly anticipate what lies within,and enjoy the moment of unwrapping the package. And, of course, I hope she is delighted with the jewelry that I have created, and enjoys wearing it that month and in the future. You can order the Luxe Box HERE!
We’ve created dozens of new designs for 2013 and the one with the most overwhelming response thus far has been the Emerald Clover Earrings. Perhaps it’s because Emerald is the Pantone Color of the Year, or maybe it can be attributed to the mix of the clover pendant with the green gemstone — the perfect way to take you from day to night.
We’re not totally sure why it’s been so popular, but we do that today until midnight, the Emerald Clover Earrings are 40% off!
