My trip to NY in August was super eventful. The weather was much better and I experienced an amazing dining experience at The Nomad Hotel. Although it wasn’t truffle season and my gf JL really wanted me to try the truffle pasta.. we figured I’d be back soon enough to try it next time! We had frosé, saw sapphires and enjoyed the tolerable weather… way better than my trip before.
My next NY trip is in October, less than a month away and another in November… I’m excited to be back with my fur!
Had a sapphire shipped from NY (video to follow this week) but it didn’t work out well. I saw two in NY that I loved but one was super pricey and the other was too dark. Of course I liked the pricey one…
I had the one in my budget shipped to because I thought I’d like it without the pricier one by it. But nope. I didn’t. It was still too dark!
I put the stone on a setting just to see.
I want the flower rings below though… $2,300… too rich for me (right meow).
I’ve gotten henna twice before and I loved it. The only bad thing is that it doesn’t come off all at the same time. Towards the end of the week, it can start to look a little dirty. I was leaving for NY on Wednesday so I thought it would be a good idea to get it the Sunday before. No client meetings at the office and I’d be gone half the week. People assume that henna is black, but only when it is applied. Once it dries and peels off, it becomes burgundy. I wished it stayed as dark as it does in my photo.
I’ve tried two different places. Each place is different and offer contrasting quality. My go to place is in Artesia. They have the best quality I’ve experienced so far (yes, I’ve only been to one other). It’s darker, dries quicker, I can take it off quicker… etc.

I have reached out to my long time family jeweler to hunt for a light purple sapphire for my replacement engagement ring. She found three but it was not it. The emerald cut was gorgeous but too dark, the round and pear were light but not light enought. It’s funny, because she made a good point. It’s going to be harder now than ever because I’m comparing it to something I had before. I really hope she can track one down. :/ I really want my engagement ring back…
Remember my bear that my dear friend got me? Well, it got lost at the L.A. Art Show so I googled for a similar one. Saw this in multiple colors and I had to get it in purple of course. The dark purple doesn’t pop as much as the one I had before but at least it’s sparkly. And the fur… it’s really soft too. Faux, but feels fureal. 😛
This is going to be my next purchase. Jo swears by this jewelry cleaner and I trust her judgement. She’s a particular one. I haven’t cleaned my jewelry in so long and I noticed when I went to the spa that they were dirty. (I was getting the Korean body scrub so I had to take it off).
