Little Wishes Do Come True

I am sorry for my lack of blogginess readers. I wasn't planning on taking a mini hiatus but well, it happens. No need for apologies I know, but I miss you when I'm away from my computer. I can't believe how much blogging has enriched my life. I think it's become more than a hobby of sorts - I truly feel like I've found a home here and I just wanted to thank you again for being so kind and supportive.

Did you all have a wonderful Christmas? Mine was pleasant, but I feel like I've gained a million pounds! All of the goodies that my boyfriend's family made has spoiled me rotten. That coupled with that fact that I haven't worked out since I bruised my tailbone is forcing me to place "Work out, eat healthy" on the top of my New Year's resolution list. Typical, right?!

I decided to take the plunge and buy two pieces of jewelry for myself. I didn't feel so guilty because my Christmas shopping was done and I had some extra money saved up:

I bought these at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. My first Chanel purchase! It was difficult bypassing the gorgeous quilted bags, but I can at least afford a pair of gorgeous quilted earrings.


The YSL Arty Oval Ring in turquoise.



I couldn't be happier with them! My plan is to buy a pretty, old-fashioned jewelry box to store my treasures in. Did any of you buy anything for yourselves this Holiday Season? I couldn't resist!

  7. Excellent choices! I always think that at the end of the year there is nothing wrong with gifting yourself with something. After all we work hard and all our money shouldn't be going to bills! As they say, pay yourself first!

    Love them!

  13. Christina: I hope you had a wonderful Christmas too!

    Veronika: These earrings in particular were $180 dollars. I believe the studs with the swarovski crystals are about $230. It depends on the size and the materials used. I will email this info to you in case you don't see this ;)

    Natasha: Thank you, I'm sure you love yours as much I love mine!

    Anh: Thank you! Now I just need to borrow one of your bags ;)

    Natalia: Thank you sweetie, I agree! I hope you gifted yourself with something special this year.

    Cupcake couture and sugar sugar: Thank you girls!

    Andi: I really wanted the lapis but it was sold out! I'm extremely happy with the turquoise though, it really pops more than any of the other colors (IMO). It will get good use =)

    Kristen: Thank you, they definitely do look better in person!

    E manticoff: That was so sweet of you, thank you for the shout-out once again!

    Amber, Nina, and Mimi: Thank you =)

  19. Linda: Thank you! This is why I splurge sometimes - I want pieces that will carry me through seasons, regardless of trends. When it comes to jewelry, simple studs and a big funky cocktail ring are must haves!

    Emily: I hope you do get the chance one day! I'm lucky that I live only a few short hours away. I've been a few times now and every time I visit is different! It really is a fun place...for adults ;)

    She walks iin beauty: The YSL box was very pretty, and it is housing my ring until I buy a vintage looking jewelry box! The YSL box is white with black cursive that bears the name Yves Saint Laurent. I actually did take a picture of it but I didn't include it because I thought it was unnecessary to show ;) It is very plain.

    Andee: Thank you sweetie, same to you!

  20. Great purchases! I am in LOVE with the YSL arty ring! Did you pick up the ring in Vegas and if so in which store!?!? (i'm off to vegas next week and have been eyeing the YSL ring for months now!)

  21. Nikosmommy: Oooo, have fun on your trip! I actually bought the Arty here in Ca, at the YSL boutique in Orange County. But, there IS a YSL boutique at the Bellagio in Vegas, only a few short steps from where I bought the Chanel earrings. I bet they have some! Good luck!

  22. I like your earrings,and the small size. I bought a similar pair from Chanel years ago but I gave them to sister recently as they are a bit to big.
