Celebrating Valentine's Day with Best Friends, Wine, and Jewelry

Jewelry and Valentine’s day – two things that seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly.

And yes, while it is nice to get some roses and a fancy necklace from your significant other, but who says you need a guy to have gorgeous jewelry?  And speaking of significant others if only we could find these men in real life we would be all set.  If you had to pick one of the following guys to be your “other”, which one would it be?

 But instead of focusing on men, we should really be thinking about the great female friends we have in our lives.  Nowadays I rarely head out without my fav gal pals in tow.  They keep me out of trouble… or at least they try, they are always willing to take one for the team and they never, never, never, let me make a bad choice when it comes to men.  After every horrendous date or terrible pickup line, they’ve always been there to mock the guy and say “you could do so much better!”

They are the ones that encourage me to take risks and always say “why the hell not” and tell me how great I am – even when I am not feeling so great.   These gals help to make life lots of fun – there is never a dull moment and always lots of laughs – which is what living life should be all about.

So why not surprise one of your besties with a necklace this Valentine’s Day?  I love the simple silver design that keeps the jewelry chic and not cheesy. They have incredibly inspiring quotes on them that will encourage you to embrace your power, dreams, and beauty.

Some of the famous quotes include:

  • there is no way to happiness, happiness is the way

  • believe in yourself and magic will happen

  • and this above all: to thine own self be true

  • what lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us

  • your life is your own, you mold it, you make it

  • go confidently in the direction of your dreams live the life you've imagined

And while your getting one for your friend – pick up one for yourself too!

Whether you’re enjoying a romantic meal at your favorite restaurant, drinking wine and watching Ryan Gosling flicks with your best friends (just as an fyi he was fab in Drive …and I also loved him in Crazy Stupid Love… and I love that he is a Canadian), or just spending a quiet evening at home on your own - have a wonderful February 14th!

PS. Guess you can see who I would pick as my "other"!
