Have a Beautiful Weekend

1 Mar

There is no denying that Jennifer Lawrence looked beautiful at the Oscars this past weekend, and what about her happy mistake, (when she tripped) which only provided the perfect angle of the back of her dress, but as a jewelry designer the one thing that caught my eye the most from the event was the draped back necklace she wore. I wore more of a casual style here last year.


Brides-to-be and seniors getting ready for prom should take a note of it, as it adds an elegant up-date to the traditional way of wearing a necklace.

What are you plans for the week? I have a busy one ahead, tonight I am going to an art exhibit at the Detroit Artist Market (DAM) which is one of my favorite things to do. I will also be taking a jewelry class tomorrow and attending a gem fair, and my sister will be busy at her event.

On another note, I am still going strong on giving-up shopping for lent which I am hoping will transition into a new year resolution for the remaining of year. Mind you it will not mean that I won’t shop, but it will be controlled for sure. If you been following us you know by now that I am bachelor addict and I was not surprised to see Ashlee go. She strikes me as a downer, and if I got that vibe from her, I am sure as heck that so did Sean. We are also finally at the point where I start to enjoy American Idol, so you if you follow you may be reading about me rambling about it, and this is an interesting group. I also think that the producers have an agenda behind it. I believe the reason they brought not one diva, but two divas as judges this season is so that they don’t let a diva get away from winning this year, what do you all think?

Hope you all have great plans for the weekend and that it is a beautiful one!


The Bachelor

13 Mar

Hi Jewels,
It’s Monica! Did The Bachelor catch any of you by surprised this season? First off, I had never watched the show before, but this season I watched it religiously. From the very beginning I was captivated by Courtney’s natural beauty and, unlike most of America, I was rooting for her! I remember feeling sorry for her because of the industry she was in; it was almost like she didn’t know any better. Her natural ability when it came to stabbing the other girls in the back and playing games was very believable and, like the rest of America ,I could not get enough! She played the game well and because of it she won her man in the end!

What I really appreciated the most about Courtney was her honesty. Whether it was her worst or her best, she kept it real. I could see why Ben chose her in the end. Her sincerity never sounded rehearsed and she was not afraid to put herself out there. She knew what she wanted and took the initiative to rehearse their wedding the week Ben met her parents. Talk about being bold! What kind of man would not want that? As the show gradually progressed and she shared her feelings about Ben she never sounded like she was thinking about what she wanted to say, which is what most of the other girls sounded like. She spoke from her heart and she was always authentic. Ben and Courtney’s tears at the final rose ceremony convinced me and I am not one who is easily convinced. I truly hope it works out for them in the end.

Tell us your thought about this past season on The Bachelor.
