Tweet I bristle when I hear people complain that Valentine’s Day is a manufactured, consumerist holiday, then claim that THEY always express love with thoughtful gifts or acts on ordinary days.

Tweet I couldn’t sleep last night so I was surfing around teh Internets and came across some new photos of Rihanna. I noticed that she was wearing a couple of little necklaces, although they were barely visible in the photos. I thought, “I wish she were wearing one of my necklaces.” Then I said aloud: […]

Tweet Today is MrB’s birthday: He’s turned the big Seven-Oh! A 70th birthday requires serious celebration, so over the weekend I organized a surprise dinner attended by his four children and two grandchildren.

Tweet I was headed out the door when the BET Awards came on last night, but I noticed my Twitter timeline blowing up with derogatory references to singer Usher and his “pink boots.”  During dinner, I kept wondering what he was wearing to cause such shock and dismay.

Tweet … I’ll take the opportunity to brag that Julie Gerstein of The Frisky thinks my jewelry designs are “very reminiscent of Cersei, Sansa, Dany and the lot.” Woot! I’d love to see my jewelry on any of the Game of Thrones ladies, but let’s not forget about Peter Dinklage, who won an Emmy for […]

Tweet Just a week ago, I did a Fashion Repeats Itself post comparing new black, mesh-topped dresses to a bodysuit I wore in 1993. On Sunday, Rihanna outdid the dress-wearing ladies by sporting a bodysuit JUST LIKE ME! Well, maybe not just like me. She forgot the mom jeans. The other thing Rihanna is missing […]

Tweet Gung hay fat choy! Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the lucky year of the dragon and you should get one of my dragon jewelry designs to celebrate. Sure, it will cost you a pretty penny, but it’s much cheaper in the long run than having a dragon-year child. Eighteen years from now, you won’t […]
