Who remembers that moment that occurred once a year, where you got to shop for your ‘birthday party’ dress? It was definitely a highlight in my yearly planner and I can’t wait to bring the tradition back to life. The concept was simple; for one day, you got to look, feel, and behave extra special.

Of course I didn’t discover it until I was well into my teens and ten years later, it easily became one of my favourite movies.

We manage to get the right outfit for the right occasion, but sometimes when it comes to jewellery, we often forget to look for the appropriate piece. We pick something that already exists in our closet and hope to make it work. As an accessory, the right jewellery has the power to make or break your look.

It’s been over two months since we have all been in lockdown. In the initial few weeks, I was reminiscing about trips I had taken with my family and friends in the past – sipping bubbly on the pristine beaches of Bali with my sister, hiking the Wineglass Bay in Tasmania with friends or the many summer picnics at Prospect Park in New York.
These are unprecedented times and every day is different. While on some days we get a fresh burst of inspiration and energy, other days can be overwhelming.

Raise your hand if you are desperately missing your girlfriends right now. A virtual chat doesn’t even come close to the hours we’ve spent hanging out with our girls; it’s true we never run out of things to talk about.
From missing lectures together in college, to the first heartbreak, through weddings and babies and work successes and failures,
