Mother’s Day Gift Idea: Wooden Cameo Necklace

Wooden Cameo Necklace

There’s a lot of “mom” jewelry on the market these days, but if you’re looking for something a little different I recommend checking out this Wooden Cameo Necklace from Le Papier Studio. I’m so smitten with it that I have had it open in my browser for two weeks!

There’s a selection of silhouettes to choose from, or you have the option of submitting your own photos for a truly personalized necklace!

A small pearl and a gold wishbone charm are also affixed to each necklace.

Each wooden cameo necklace costs $64 and ships within 2-3 business days after the proof is finalized.

The Love Wars is $2.99 for Kindle and Nook

The Love Wars


The Love Wars by L. Alison Heller is just $2.99 for Kindle and Nook today! While I haven’t read The Love Wars it has great reviews on Amazon.

Here’s they synopsis:

Breaking up is hard to do. At least the first few times.

Even though Molly Grant has only a handful of relationships behind her, she’s already been through more divorces than she can count.

At the premier Manhattan law firm where she’s a matrimonial attorney, the hours are long, the bosses tyrannical, and the bonuses stratospheric. Her clients are rich, famous, and used to getting their way. Molly’s job—and primary concern in life—is to work as hard as possible to make sure they do. Until she meets the client who changes everything….

Fern Walker is the desperate former wife of a ruthless media mogul. Her powerful ex is slowly pushing her out of her young children’s lives, and she fears losing them forever. Molly—haunted by an incident from her own past—finds herself unable to walk away from Fern and sets out to help her. She just needs to do it without her bosses finding out.

Now, as complications both professional and personal stack up, Molly can only hope that her own wits, heart, and instincts are enough—both in and out of court.

From the reviews I’ve read, it doesn’t sound like this is a romance story, but a story about an attorney kicking butt at her job.

Just Browsing: New Summer Styles at Boden

I recently remembered that I picked up the Boden discount that Rue La La offered a little while back and I thought we could all take a peek through the Boden Summer Apparel together.

I LOVE browsing the Boden website. Their images are so fun and the women featured always look so happy. I always think I want to look just like them, though this will be my first Boden purchase ever! (So, I guess this summer is when I’ll actually look like a Boden woman!)

Here are just a few of the items I have my eye on:

Summer Shift Dress The Casual Shirt at Boden

Summer Shift – $129 // The Casual Shirt – $58

Florence Skirt Boden Gathered Detail Tunic

Florence Skirt – $118 // Gathered Detail Tunic – $88

Boden Palma Sandal Boden Selina Dress

Palma Sandal – $88 (I meant to include these in my post about metallic sandals but forgot about them!) // Selina Dress – $218

Needless to say, I’d be happy owning anything from Boden. Now to narrow it down…

Warm Weather Wear: Fancy Shorts

Hopefully it’s warming up in your neck of the woods (it was so cold here yesterday!). Since it’s starting to get warmer I need to re-vamp my warm weather wardrobe. My favorite warm weather wear is shorts, so I found some fun ones that won’t break the bank, but still make a statement!

These sequin shorts are to die for!

sequin shorts

What a great way to add a bit of flare to your wardrobe while still being comfortable and cool!

Available in green and copper- I can’t decide which one I like better!

If the sequins scare you, then I can’t recommend linen enough. I have a pair of linen shorts and they are the most comfortable things in the world.

Scallop Linen shorts

Dress them up or dress them down- they’d look great either way! And for $37.63 you aren’t breaking the bank. LOVE.

Lastly, these lace shorts are just $6.90! I’m buying them in black and beige!

Are shorts on your must have list for the warm weather?

Here’s How to get a Free Ride with Lyft, the Ride Share App

Lyft Free Ride

Have you been seeing cars with pink mustaches zooming around your city? If so, you’re in a Lyft zone! Lyft is a ride-sharing service that’s a cheaper alternative to traditional taxis, where you basically hitch a ride with regular people driving their regular cars. Of course, you still have to pay for said ride but you will still pay quite a bit less than you would for a regular taxi.

If you haven’t yet tried out Lyft, now’s the perfect time to give it a whirl because Slickdeals, a crowd-sourced site and mobile app for bargain hunters, has partnered exclusively with Lyft, to offer a FREE RIDE for new users!

Download the Lyft app on iPhone or Android and use the promo code “SLICKDEALS” to get where you need to go!

The code is good for one (1) free ride (up to a $50 value) for new Lyft users (never taken a ride and never redeemed a code before). This promotion will expire on December 31, 2014.

Lyft is currently available in the following cities:

Twenty Five Bedford Takes the Guess Work Out of Building a Work Wardrobe

Twenty Five Bedford - custom made suiting for women


College graduations are just around the corner, which means another generation of young folk are about to enter the work force, and of course there are those of us that have been here for years. The one thing I think we all have in common is building a work wardrobe that’s comfortable, fits well, and looks good.

Enter Twenty Five Bedford, a new fashion-design company that’s based right here in the United States. The garment district in New York City.

At Twenty Five Bedford you will find custom made suiting for women. All of the pieces in the collection can be mixed and matched, which makes getting dressed in the morning a cinch! Currently they offer skirts, blazers, dresses, and blouses. The selection is by no means expansive, but a few quality pieces can take your wardrobe far!

One thing worth noting is that getting custom-designed pieces that are made in the United States isn’t cheap. Skirts will run you $135 each, blouses are $165, dresses are $235-$255, and blazers are $255. High-quality suiting can be expensive, so the price isn’t a surprise to me. I was a little disappointed that they currently only offer sizes 2-12. It is a brand new company, however, so I hope they add more sizes in the near future.

Delivery takes up to three weeks for each piece, as all items are custom-made to order.

Twenty Five Bedford was created by Keri Ferry, who left a private equity job in London to pursue her dream of creating a fashion line offering modern styles and silhouettes available in quality fabrics and endless color variations.
