There are some things you look at that make your heart sing! ūüéľūüé§ (I borrowed this phrase from a prominent YouTuber, Minks4All). Today’s topic is bracelets, also known arm candy when strategically stacked/positioned to create what some consider to be a work of art! In this post I am including my FAVORITE designer bracelets from: ¬†Lagos, Cartier, Hermes, Gucci, Tiffany, Louis Vuitton and Van Cleef. These items ARE¬†on my #wishlist – some things never come off because they are #SUPERexpensive ūü§Ď A girl can dream can’t she?!

LAGOS – Absolutely LOVE the subtle, yet classy way they mix metals, particularly black (caviar) ūüĖ§ with silver, gold or pearl. All are stunning!


Next up is the infamous CARTIER love bracelet, obviously in gold (DUH!) WITH diamonds! No additional commentary needed here.¬†ūüė©


HERMES H bracelet. Many colors available, take your pick! I prefer narrow (0.5 inch) in some combination of black, silver, white or gold. Their signature orange is also a go.




GUCCI Loved pendant bracelet with pearls. Great for a night out on the town!





TIFFANY HARDWEAR Link Bracelet in gold, medium.

LOUIS VUITTON Idylle Blossom Bracelet, Yellow Gold with Diamonds.


VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Vintage Alhambra bracelet. This is a new brand for me; but, I LOVE this bracelet and it looks SO good on!





You don’t have to be rich to get these looks. Find something similar in your price range and rock with it!

Apple Watch Hacks

I absolutely love people!!!! (most days). We are so creative and inventive when it comes to coming up with inexpensive ideas to get things we want and even to get things done. This is one of the reasons I visit site like Mashable and Lifehacker daily!

So, now¬†to the Apple watch. People love Apple but also hate the¬†restrictions and the sometimes the¬†expensive¬†pricing models. If you want a Gold Apple watch, get ready to fork over $10K-$12K. Bands¬†are also pricey ($49-$449) and may not be the exact design you prefer. A few ambitiously amazing people have found hacks to resolve both these issues! From spray painting your watch gold to adding an ordinary band to having your Apple watch gold plated by a regular jeweler¬†($400 for 24K gold plating). People are even requesting more hacks!!! Amazing stuff, right?!!¬†Enjoy the short videos below and get ready to smile! ūüôā




Somebody help…

Of course, I¬†along with lots of other techies,¬†fangirls¬†and fanboys¬†watched the Apple show¬†today – this is the company’s bi-annual event where they announce new products and upgrades… but ONE IN PARTICULAR caught my attention. Before today I thought I wanted an Apple Watch but NNNOOOO – Apple introduced a NEW MacBook IN STUNNING GOLD to its lineup. Skip the watch and go with the MacBook! It weighs 2 pounds, has no fan, a 10″ screen and look absolutely amazing!!!! ‚̧‚̧LOVE‚̧‚̧

(Do yourself a favor and get the upgraded model – your patience will thank you!)
