I’m always on the hunt for unique and one of a kind items.  I frequent thrift stores and vintage shops.  But, it isn’t always convenient to find the time to stop in to check out ‘what’s new’ with these vendors who carry ‘what’s old’.  
I’ve finally found the online alternative known as invaluable.com In a few clicks you’ll find one of a kind quality pieces that will have everyone wondering where you got it. 

I absolutely love the classy modernistic edge of the ring top right. The real stones make it a great investment. The Bvlgari exudes simple elegance, it has a special feel to it. The vintage cigar ring has a charm all it’s own. Pairing the look of something masculine with something feminine is pure genius.  Alone or stackable, accented with or without your other jewellery you can’t go wrong with these fabulous rings



Paris should be effortless and chic.
A cocktail dress and trench coat is the perfect ensemble to embrace any occasion.
Dressed up with a chunky choker and Chanel N°5 …you'll fit in perfectly under the shining lights of the Eiffel tower. You'll feel like you stepped right out of Vogue, as you sip champagne in elegant China and eat bright pink macaroons at Ladurée.Don’t forget about sultry and elegantly smoking way too many cigarettes at Le Schmuck. Ce la vie.. right!?  

If like me, you are still in the infant stages of learning français, translation software can be a great lifeline. Recently I came across smartling.com They offer a combination of machine and human translation, which is fantastic because you will be error free while checking out some of the best french websites. 
Just remember, the scrumptious french cuisine will speak for you. Expressions and eye contact can beautifully translate and substitute as new verbs.

…you'll find me floating somewhere between Rue Cambon and le Louvre.

Ugh, words cannot express the love I feel for this woman and her paintings. For me, every piece captures a different emotion. Her collection is fascinating, glamorous, exhilarated, exotic, prestigious and not to mention hilarious. 

Honestly, no amount of adjectives could do this woman or her art justice. So, while I plot out my quest to own a house full of them scroll on and be ready to fall in lust.
