Orchira UK

I have stumbled across a fabulous online store, Orchira, dedicated to selling pearls. I have always been a little in awe of pearls, and how beautiful and delicate they appear. Pearls add an extra touch of class to an otherwise plain outfit. What I love about Orchira, other than their fabulous jewelry, is the way the site is split up into convenient sections such as “Designer Jewellery,” and “Fashion Jewellery,” and each of these sections is split up into more sections. This really makes shopping so much easier. Here are three pieces, one from each section, which I fell in love with.

Panache Redefined

This bracelet is made out of silver pearls, turquoise and white beads. It can be found in the “Pearl Jewellery,” “Shop By ColourWay,” “Cool silver” sections.

Brandenburg Concerto

This necklace is made out of black oval pearls. It can be found in the “Designer Jewellery,” “Browse Collections,” “Essentials,” sections.

Nocturne No 225

This necklace is made out of silver pearls and a brooch pendant. It can be found in the “Fashion Jewellery,” “Ideas By Occasion,” “Mother’s day,” sections.

To view (and purchase!) beautiful pearl jewelry, visit the Orchira website.


Under the Weather

Dear readers,

Many apologies for not having updated in a couple of days. Unfortunately, I have been sick for the past 4 days and have been unmotivated to do much of anything. Usually a little retail therapy perks me right up, but alas, I am still on a bit of a shopping hiatus, and frankly I did not want to get out of bed to “window shop.” Now THAT is when you know something is wrong with me.

In the mean time, I have resorted to watching movies and reading up on this and that online. Here are a few things that have made me feel better:

Looking at the top stories and newest trends in regards to style on one of my favorite websites http://www.refinery29.com/.

I especially enjoyed refinery29’s private tour of Alexis Bittar’s Brooklyn Heights Bachelor Pad. Alexis Bittar is an iconic jewelry designer with an absolutely gorgeous townhouse – I have a secret desire to one day become an interior designer. 😉

Check out http://www.refinery29.com/alexis-bittar-jeweler-brooklyn-bachelor-pad for a tour. Seems like more closet space than a 90-square-foot apartment.

Sean Patrick Thomas, I mean, the movie Save the Last Dance made me feel better. I know it’s a little corny, and the outfits are beyond…well they’re just bad, but I have always loved this movie.

"The only person you need to be is yourself!"

And lastly, my little pup (who sadly now lives in Maryland) came for a visit. He always brightens my day, and deserves more than just one picture.

His favorite thing to do.

Stay healthy!
