Macha Jewelry

I recently came across this jewelry line “Macha Jewelry” on They have great little metal and jewel combined pieces, including rings, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. Although simple pieces, most are silver, gold, or some kind of metal, they are very delicate and beautiful. I especially love the gold and silver infused pieces.

Their rings are probably the most unique – ranging from beautiful bespoke rings to russian wedding chains to wrap around metallic rings. (And Macha Jewelry will custom create them to your size). They even have wedding bands and engagement rings – not your typical Tiffany’s.

The below I found on

Russian Chain Ring 14k Gold and Sterling silver – $395

Cale Ring – $190

Heart Lariat Necklace – $140

Jagger Trilogy Ring – $510

Guilty Pleasure: Inna

Inna is a Romanian pop singer who has been especially popular in Eastern and Western Europe. I first heard her while I was studying abroad in Paris. I have admitted before that my guilty pleasure is techno, and Inna plays to this perfectly.

Okay fine, I’m also incredibly jealous of her hair… but do we think it’s extensions?

My personal favorite is “Hot”:

She is going on her first world tour in 2011 – who’s in??

My Dream House… Or Cottage…

I came across this cottage on both and The English Muse. Designer and blogger, Sandra Foster, has taken shabby chic to a whole new level and it’s beautiful. Located in the Catskills, this Victorian cottage has one room and a lofted bed (accessible by ladder). How much did this cost to renovate? Only $3,000. Foster proves that if you have creativity you can do anything for nothing.

I could easily live in this gorgeous one room cottage for the rest of my life. Whatever happened to the Shabby Chic show anyway….?

Christmas Highlights

There is nothing more depressing than the day after Christmas. The stress and anxiety of Christmas planning is gone, family from far away have all left to go home, all baking is finally finished, and the tree is left naked with no presents under it. I want to thank all my family and friends for making this Christmas so special.

Although I really do love giving gifts more than receiving (and I’m NOT just saying this – it’s a great excuse to shop!), Santa (and others) did leave me some great little treasures under the tree this year. And I want to thank my friends and family for their generosity.

Here are a few of the highlights.

A dome cake platter from Fish’s Eddy! (Thanks Mom!)

I snagged this gem in the annual family grab bag – it’s been on my “to read” list for weeks.

Roll up flats – the best invention ever! They roll up perfectly to fit in a small bag for when your feet are in total agony after a night in heels.

A Louis Vuitton coin purse from the boyfriend :] I especially love it because it’s denim – different than the usual LV leather.

Anna Sui’s new book from my Grandmother! Other than the amazing pictures of her collections, it also talks about her experience in the fashion industry.

A cute cherry patterned apron to go with my cake platter.

And my favorite gift of all…

No, not a puppy, unfortunately,… But my boyfriend is sponsoring a sick puppy named Marty who has a neurological disorder in my name. He was rescued from a puppy mill and has various health problems causing him to walk in circles, stare in to space, and forget to eat. However, he is currently living in a foster home until he is adopted. And thanks to my boyfriend and others, Marty is able to get the care he needs.

Although I am so grateful for these gifts, I am even more grateful for the people who I got to spend the holiday with.
