I was approached by Pearl & Clasp to feature a pair of their gorgeous Freshwater Pearl Earrings.  So, when I saw the Black Pearls, I fell in love.  I love the shape of the pearl and I love the metallic hues the pearl gives off.  Be sure to check out their entire collection here.

I was honored to have the opportunity to once again collaborate with the amazing designer Samantha Faye.  This time I chose three more amazing pieces, one of which, has meaning that’s near and dear to my heart.  The first piece I chose was the Large Pineapple.  I’ve always had a weird obsession with pineapples, so it was a “no brainer” for me to go with that piece.  The second, is the amazing gold lips.   But when I saw the City collection, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I choose the gold bar.  One side of it has the Latitude and Longitude coordinates of Newport, Rhode Island.  Greg and I have some pretty amazing history in the city of Newport.  Our love story began there and we got married there.  So I knew right away, that I wanted my City Bar to be a Newport bar.  And the other side simply says Newport.  Simple, Sweet, and Chic!

When jewelry designer Samantha Faye approached me to feature a few of her pieces, I did not have to think twice.  But when I found out that my partner in crime, (my daughter) Drew was going to be featured with me, I was beyond excited.

We were asked to choose something from the adorable TWO x TWO collection, a gorgeous line that comes with both a small and large pendant necklace.  You can choose from a number of whimsical pendants so that you and your mini me can both sport the same necklace.  All of her pieces come in either 14K Gold Plate, Rose Gold Plate, or Sterling Silver.  Because Drew is the ultimate fashion expert in my family, I let her choose which pendant we went with.  And because she loves the color pink, and her favorite animal is the “bunny rabbit,” she chose the Bunny Pair in Rose Gold.

Any piece from the TWO x TWO collection makes a great gift for you and your special someone or for the fashionable duo in your life.  Be sure to check out the entire line  here.  And be on the look out for more of my Samantha Faye features next week!  Have a great weekend!
