Earring Jackets

Earring Jackets

For our very first blog ever… what exactly are Earring Jackets?

Earring jackets give new life to your favorite studs!  Go ahead, take them out out of your jewelry box, and show them off in style!  Add a pair of hoops, or silver dangles.  You’ll be surprised the compliments you get!

How do jackets work?  Take your favorite pair of gold, gemstone, pearl or diamond studs, put them through the loop at the top, then put the back on.  And tada… NEW look you’ll love!

Jogging and Wrinkles?

Love to Run

Is it true that jogging can make my face sag? What?!?  Nothing beats time alone, getting a good run in, especially when stress is high. But wrinkles, who needs those?  Sure, walking may combat that, but if one really wants to run, a good moisturizer is in order!

Fighting Wrinkles while Sleeping

Love Rodan and Fields REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream. It is an ultra-hydrating cream which replenishes skin’s natural moisturizing factors (NMFs) while you sleep for visibly firmer, less-lined skin in the morning. Moisture recycling complex of hyaluronic acid and glycerin prevent moisture loss while 12-hour, time-released antioxidants A, C and E replenish vital skin nutrients. So wake-up, feel refreshed, then get in a good run.  Sure, jogging may cause wrinkles, but so does stress…. and by combating stress and taking care of my skin, maybe I can ward off a few more wrinkles… for now.

Avoid Winter Sun Damage… no matter where you are.

Reverse R and F Sunscreen

Sunscreen?  In the winter? But of course!  Whether you are out hitting the slopes or taking a winter trip in the tropics, your skin needs protected from the damaging rays of the sun.  We love Rodan and Fields Reverse Regimen and what better way to preserve your skin than preventing damage in the first place.

This sunscreen has a unique complex of stabilized avobenzone and anti-oxidant/anti-inflammatory colorless carotenoids, to provide prolonged broad spectrum protection and ensure that the REVERSE Regimen has every opportunity to reverse the signs of past damage, while preventing new discolorations from forming. Vitamin E and green tea fight free radicals and prevent future damage from occurring, while licorice extract and mulberry help to brighten dull skin.

So plan that ski trip, or spend a few hours poolside sipping pina coladas from a pineapple mug… either way, any time you are outside, make sure you are protecting your skin, it’s the only skin you have.

14k Lighthouse Pendant

A light in the distance, a welcoming glow, a beacon in the night… lighthouses can be mesmerizing.  Many travel the world over to see these shore side beauties.  Sometimes planning vacations around a trip to view these in person. Many are on historic registers and some have been painstakingly restored to bring them back to life.


Whether you visit the oceans or great lakes, surely these distance monuments have captured your eye.  If you haven’t made a point to see one in person, perhaps a road trip is in order. Many are open for public viewing and some are even bed and breakfasts where you may stay, such as the Heceta Head light in Oregon.

Heceta Head, Oregon

Pronounced “Ha – SEE – Ta” by most, “HECK – ah – Ta” by others, yet everyone agrees Heceta Head is one of the most beautiful lighthouses in the world. The Heceta Head Lighthouse and Light Keeper’s house are circa 1894. Both are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. (Info from http://hecetalighthouse.com)

Guests may actually stay at the Keeper’s house.  So if you are looking for an interesting vacation, lighthouse tours are certainly work considering. Make a few new memories this year… and learn a little history along the way.

Trivia: Where was the first lighthouse in America?

Answer:  (yeah, it’s backwords, grab a mirror to translate, or google it).
