Drippin in Jewels

Grateful to know such talented people. One of those lovely individuals is Rachel Alexander, who is the founder and designer of Rhyden. Based in sun soaked Los Angeles, her collection melds a sculptural sensuality with the simplicity of geometric lines, elegant form, and impactful minimalism. 

Rhyden is a concept meant to explore the idea of a simple statement piece. A casual refinement, materialized. Which is my personal favorite kind of jewelry. Something you can pass down and will withstand the test of time. 

Every Rhyden piece speaks of lasting craftsmanship that transcends seasons, while yielding a day-to-night ease-of-wear sensibility.

Even better, all Rhyden items are proudly handcrafted in DTLA, CA with precious metals, and conflict-free ethically sourced diamonds. Win win. 

Feel to explore her collection and enjoy some pieces yourself!

Royal Wedding Bliss

It was such a treat to watch Meghan Markle aka the American Princess aka Dutchess of Sussex get married to such a dreamboat, royal rebel Prince Harry! Besides having crumpets and cucumber sandwiches for that touch of english charm, it was lovely watching with friends such a monumentous occasion. It's refreshing to see a smart, resilient, against the odds woman be seen for her accolades rather than what life dealt her. Though the Tig is now defunct, I look forward to seeing how this lovely lady makes a positive impact in years to come! Here's to you Meghan and Harry!

Off To The Desert

It's that time of year again - festival season! Not to date myself but I remember the days when Coachella was one weekend and daily passes were a thing. Crazy how hype and time changes things. Posts start to riddle the internet about what outfits to pack and how to look festival ready. Truthfully, I find that funny. Why you ask? Not only is this taking place in the desert but I was under the impression that when you go to a festival, it is all about the music, the vibe and the people you surround yourself with. Of course its a plus when you can look nice even though you just danced till you're drenched. My packing advice for Coachella is as follows. 1. Comfortable shoes - you will be on your feet most of the day so they better be comfy. I'd recommend some vans or cute booties. 2. Baby wipes - the desert is a beauty and dirty place, so sometimes a wipe down is refreshing.  3. Bandanna - it gets windy and you don't want to end up with dirt in your eyes or mouth. 4. Button down shirt - for when the temperature dips, you'll want to stay cozy. 5. SPF - the sun is a cruel temptress and sunburns are no fun. 6. Sunglasses - speaking of the sun, protect your eyes people  7. Camera - trust me when I say there will be wicked moments/scenarios that you'll want to capture. I usually go with a trusty disposable. 8. Water bottle - the desert is hot, plus if you're dancing your butt off, stay hydrated.
