Ariella Collection Pave Ring

The Ariella Collection Pave Ring (in Gold, of course) is one of my favorite purchases of the year to date.

Ariella Pave Ring

Fifty-five 5-star reviews on Nordstrom! It’s uber-sparkly (of course), feels very solid and high-quality, and looks much more expensive than it is, which is a very affordable $68 (!!). I call that a steal.

Usually I stray away from wide bands like this because I hate the feeling of something thick and large in between my fingers…but this one is surprisingly very comfortable. I barely noticed it was there. Look at that sparkle! This photo does not do it justice.

I’d highly recommend this little beauty. I love it worn on the index finger as it’s an elegant statement piece. Pick yours up here at Nordstrom. Available in Gold or Silver.


Nadri All Around Cubic Zirconia Bangle

Any of you ever check out the jewelry counters at Nordstrom? The degree of sparkle of that entire section is out of control. On my last trip, my eyes were immediately drawn to this little beauty.

It’s like an easy, throw-on version of a tennis bracelet. It’s thin, feminine, and very elegant/understated yet just the sheer amount of sparkle makes it an attention-grabbing statement piece. I love those types of contradictions.

No matter where I tried to take these photos, the lighting & camera seemed inadequate to capture the sparkliness. If you love shiny, pretty objects like I do, this is a definite winner. Pick yours up here at in Gold or Silver.

Burberry Mini Orchard Cross-Body Bag

The Burberry Mini Orchard Cross-Body Bag / Clutch is the perfect little bag. It fits all my essentials, from my big LV continental wallet, to my iPhone, keys, coin purse…it’s deceptively roomy for a relatively small bag.

I can throw it on cross-body style and I barely even know it’s there, but conveniently can put my iPhone in there and it’s the perfect distance from the bag to my ears so I can listen to music. I’ve already gotten a ton of compliments on it. Score 1 for beauty and convenience, my favorite combo.


The color of the leather is beautiful, as you can tell here, and the craftsmanship is outstanding. The gold hardware, from the side clips to the zipper pulls, feel substantial and very high-quality. I’m usually not a fan of canvas, but in this adorable check and with such a sturdy canvas, it feels pretty indestructible. I did the unthinkable (accidentally!) and got some rain on it, but it dried good as new and now I’m fearless when I take this baby out.


As icing on the cake, I can swap in the included wristlet strap and use it as a clutch for night time or if I just feel like using it clutch/wristlet style. Super cute. These are discontinued I think, and I’m starting to see them disappear off sites and stores, so snatch one up quick here from Bloomingdales.
