  1. Giving Tuesday

    Giving Tuesday

    It took some time to catch on, but Giving Tuesday seems to finally be in full swing. And what a wonderful idea – pausing to take stock of our good fortune and give a little something back that can help make our world a better place you could try here. Like so many, I often feel overwhelmed trying to find a way to do good in this world. But I recently read a letter written by Catherine Ryan Hyde, the author of Pay It Forward, to my son and his...

  2. Acorns

    Acorns

    When we set about creating new products for our Holiday line, there was unanimous enthusiasm for one in particular – a sweet, sparkling Acorn locket. The seed of the mighty oak tree, an acorn symbolizes strength. Which we found very appropriate given that our company was developed on the notion that carrying loved ones with you provides comfort and strength. Like all of our lockets, it’s name was chosen to honor someone we love. In this case, it’s Jeannie. A friend who embodies strength and grace and beauty. We are...

  3. Pay It Pink

    Pay It Pink

    In June of 2010, my husband Troy was transferred to Troy NY. While it’s funny to say that Troy was transferred to Troy, it actually wasn’t so funny at the time. I had lived in NYC for almost 20 years and didn’t know anything about upstate NY. I had just started my marketing business and my livelihood was in the city. But I had seen military couples live apart and didn’t want that for us. So I pulled out a map and put my finger on what I thought was...

  4. Promises

    Promises

    In 2007, I was six months pregnant with my second child. I was in my kitchen making dinner when the phone rang. One of those moments you never forget. It was my mother telling me that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. I have to say that while it shook me, I recovered quickly. My mother was otherwise healthy. Breast cancer is one of the most curable cancers and she had been getting regular mammograms. I was sure it was going to be a tough year while we figured...

  5. Still Wearing White

    Still Wearing White

    While traditional fashion rules dictate putting away our whites after Labor Day, I just can’t seem to comply. Summer is my favorite season and with a few more weeks before we officially wish it farewell, it seems unfair to make such a drastic change to my closet, which is filled to the brim with white clothes. No one sets a deadline on retiring our winter sweaters when Spring approaches. If it’s cold, you keep them in rotation until the weather thaws. My winter coat far outstayed its welcome this year...

  6. Pooh Bear

    Pooh Bear

    In April, I lost my favorite cat. I rescued Jackson at PETCO’s adoption day in Union Square and from the moment I met him, he was my boy. He had scrapes and scratches on him and I thought he was the most adorable, scrappy kitty I’d ever seen – completely in need of a really masculine name. We became besties and even as I added another kitty to the mix to keep him company, there was something special about Jackson. Our relationship remained that way for more than 16 years...

  7. Your Happy Place

    Your Happy Place

    I recently saw a Facebook post from an old friend. It was a photo of a sweet garden captioned, “My Happy Place.” It made me smile and instantly conjure an image of my own “happy place.” In a world of constant movement and shuffle it’s wonderful to take a moment and soak in a place that gives you comfort and peace. May you appreciate and enjoy YOUR happy place.

  8. The Full House

    The Full House

    Summer is, hands down, my favorite time of year. Largely because of the steady stream of visitors from near and far who fill our home with their love and laughter. I LOVE a full house. Perhaps it’s because I grew up in a house where there was always a flurry of activity. I can still hear the sound of our front door swinging open and closed as friends dropped by to play and stayed for dinner. My mother made it a place where everyone wanted to be. As an adult...

    A Rose Gold Summer

    Rose Gold has made its triumphant return to the jewelry world. This dreamy metal looks especially gorgeous on lightly tanned summer skin. In celebration of this fantastic trend – and our Mimi locket which comes in the prettiest hue of rose – we’ve put together a new Pinterest board, Rose Gold Summer, filled with inspiration to keep you glowing all summer long (think popsicles, lip balm, cocktail recipes and more!)

  10. Father's Day

    Father's Day

    Father’s Day isn’t the easiest day to celebrate when you have lost your dad, although these days, some of my sadness is replaced by being able to celebrate my favorite dad, Troy Haley, who surprises me every day with how deeply he loves his daughters. Still, the day makes me think of my dad and what struck me this year is something that he said to me in the early days of his illness. For those who don’t know, my father had brain cancer and because every square inch of...
