A dear friend of mine visited Ghana and brought back a few artifacts for me. I love receiving gifts from foreign lands. These authentic Ghanaian carvings showcase the talent of a unknown Ghanaian artist and reminds me that there is talent and beauty to be found everywhere you go. I absolutely love them.

Here’s something to try. Take a trip to the beach during the winter. I cannot believe how invigorating it is being out there with the cold fresh breeze beating against my face. Oh man, the air is so pure and crisp.
I went with a sinus infection and left feeling like a million bucks.
As a child I lived less than half a mile from the beach. At nights you can hear the waves lapping against the shore. On stormier nights, you can hear the Great Atlantic blowing to a fury. Scary and fascinating at the same time.
As an adult I’ve dreamed of owning a house by the beach but now my new dream is to own one so I can run along the shore during the winter time. Who knew!?

A new year has dawned upon us and I can’t be more excited. I always feel alive and full of hope whenever a new year starts. No matter how great the previous year was for me, the thought of starting anew fills me with joy.
Christmas came and went and I had a blast. I had family visiting which was delightful. So as the new year is underway, I have many plans for myself and my business. I can hardly wait!

Jeweled bracelet. $32
I picked these few pieces up at a little street vendor last week. I now wear the Jeweled X rubber bracelet daily on the same hand as my watch. There are so many treasures to be found at those street vendors and Kiosks in the mall.

Simple things make me happy. And on my recent trip to Peir 1 imports (my sister’s fav. store), I fell in love with their napkin rings. How pretty are these?
It’s enough to make any stylish woman happy at the dinner table. These are also very easy to make yourself. I will have to do a post on how to make your own pretty napkin rings. Oh and Peir 1 Imports you guys owe me. I purchased one (yes one) dragon fly napkin ring and the sales associate totally left it out of my bag.
