Rings - Royal Trend of 2017


Kiss the Ring
"Pomp and Circumstance"



Queen Elizabeth I - Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth (1998)


Throughout history lavish affairs require festive attire and more importantly jewelry to enhance luxurious fabrics donned by the invited to the occasion.  Recently, at the Golden Globes 2017, a trend of wearing several shimmering rings on manicured hands were lavished on several of the A-Listers gliding down the red carpet.  The  desired look is reminiscent of the Elizabethan era in which rings were worn on the second joint of the fingers as well as the first.  When sporting glittering rings opt for feminine pieces and not large gaudy beauties.  Let the engagement ring on the left hand shine above all others.   It is always a balancing act to not appear ostentatious.  Thus, seek out gorgeous real and/or costume rings that showcase a self-confident woman ready to take on world with poise and grace with every endeavor.


Ring Rules:

  • Combine Rings - One on first finger and one on the third
  • Engagement Ring - Stand alone on left hand 
  • No Engagement Ring on Left - Wear one on first finger and one on the third

Enjoy the ring trend and embrace the empowerment of stepping out in style with a twist of multiple ring magnificence.   After all, life is always changing, the world is always changing and every day is a gift. So, hold head high, chin up, dress for success, and remember to watch ones words in social media and verbally in public. The art of being positive is paramount and builds strong will among many.   Life is indeed a box of chocolates and a mystery to unfold.  Don't be afraid.  Be ready.  Be strong and embrace life with passion along with a few sparkling rings on fingers for extra twinkling confidence.

Merry Christmas 2020

  Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas one and all.  May you have a very festive day.   What a crazy year!  At the onset of the year 2020, we all had the best intentions, goals, and anticipation.   Of course, 2020 proved to be the opposite of anything we expected.  Completely 180 degrees of "What Now?"   There is no need to explain because we all have lived it.  What is for certain is that the year is finally ending. Thank goodness.  Some have stated this was the worse year in the history of our country.  Whether it was or is not, the end is in sight and a vaccine is beginning to be administered.  Hopefully, we each can reassess what is important in our lives, anticipate some sort of normalcy swooping back into our lives.  After all, we are social creatures and being isolated is not healthy for the mind or the body.  Spirit of Christmas - The Christmas Star Last Seen 1226 Never stop believing in the future and unknown.  This season we all decorated to the nines, baked cookies, laid ou

Friendship - The Hands That Hold You

The Tenets of Friendship "My joy is non-negotiable" - Kathy Lee Gifford Recently, I spent a week with my Chi Omega sorority friends in Sun Valley, Idaho on a ski vacation.  We have known each other for 40 years which is astounding and warms the heart.  We laughed, chatted, skied, snowshoed for miles, walked, talked, went out for dinners and celebrated a birthday.  My girlfriends home was beautiful and the perfect size for the group.  We enjoyed putting on our makeup together in the kitchen, pouring over the latest clothing item on the Internet, exercising to videos, eating popcorn, candy, cookies, watching Mary Poppins Returns (2018)  and an episode of Marie Kondo (Netflix) - making us think about getting rid of apparel.   Of course, there was a good bit of wine poured too.  The vibe was happy, content and filled with fun.  As always, a  few moments ensued which is quite normal for a group of women sequestered together for six days.  Yet, this trip reminded
