Tiffany’s is for Everyone!

When I think of Tiffany’s I think of little blue boxes and huge silver doors guarded by men in black suits and get more than just a little bit intimidated.

But after attending a blogger event at Tiffany’s this past December, my mind changed completely. Not only was the sales staff not intimidating, they were super nice and fun! My dedicated helper for the night was the lovely Jessica who went from case to case with me while I tried on every single thing I wanted.

She was super patient and a wealth of information. I even mentioned my intimidation about Tiffany & Co. and she hoped that more people would put their intimidation aside and come for a visit to see that it’s a nice and welcoming store.

My favorite item from that night? These gorgeous pearls. They’re something I never would have tried on my own, but Jessica wisely suggested that I try them.

Concerned about price? Think a little blue box is out of your price range? Think again. I was surprised to discover that Tiffany’s has a little something for everyone’s price range – starting under $100 up to as extravagant as you can imagine.

Here’s some of my favorite affordable Valentine’s Day gifts from Tiffany & Co. 


What Does Neiman Marcus Taste Like?

How do you feel when you walk into Neiman Marcus? I love the exclusive brands, the exquisite service and the air of luxury – exactly the feeling I got from lunch at the NM Cafe. Kid’s, you’re in for a treat. Check out our review of this lunchtime treat – on our new food blog – A Girl Must Eat.



Walk Your Precious Pup in Style!

Phyllis and DaisyI have a dog and no kids, therefore my dog is my kid. My baby. I adopted her from Tennessee last year and her name was and still is Daisy. It just so happens to be my favorite flower, too. It was meant to be.

Everyone loves Daisy. My aunt Phillis, in particular, loves Daisy. One day while Phillis was visiting, Daisy curled up in her arms and fell asleep. From that day on, Phillis was a goner.

She loved Daisy so much that she gave her a daisy printed collar and leash. Now Daisy is super-styling and she can’t go anywhere without being complimented on her lovely Daisy accessories.

Where did my aunt get it? Why Winnie Wear of course! Go ahead and check out their huge selection of hand made collars and leashes on Etsy. Daisy and I are duly impressed with the excellent quality of workmanship that went into making them.
