I must have been Mexican...

I think I must have been Mexican in a past life because I am obSESSED with turquoise jewellery. Here is the latest amazing find. Can't you imagine this with a gorgeous bright kaftan and tanned skin having cocktails in Bondi? Ahhh... buy from Neiman Marcus for US$690.

Amore Amour?

Seriously people, is this what the world has come to while I've been off having children? Last time I checked we were at the bib stage, but now apparently we need full on breast plates! Where do these designers think we are going? Off to a jousting tournament?

It's not just me is it? It looks f***ing medieval-heavy and more than a little bit like chain mail.

Buy through Net-a-Porter for L751.97.

Christmas present to myself

Dear Lisa, you've been such a good girl this year I thought you deserved to be spoilt. Hope you love the Mimco Turquoise Bib as much as I do. Love from Lisa.

Vera Wang - I love you

I'd love to be one of those people who doesn't worry about how much weight they are gaining throughout pregnancy. I wish I could take the 10kg so far calmly in my stride. I actually find it bizarrely annoying when people look at me reproachfully and say "You ARE pregnant you know". I want to say "REALLY!?!?! Because I thought I was just eating a whole pizza at 3pm for fun?"

Anyway, crazy-pregnant-lady rambling aside, I have been into buying jewellery that draws attention away from my ever-expanding body and this Vera Wang necklace fits the bill nicely. What do you think? Is there a new niche market here in accessories that take the focus off a bit of holiday-kilos?

Buy from Neiman Marcus for US $650.

'Tis the Season!

How awesome is this "Bourgeois Bow" ring by Kate Spade? It's exactly like the pre-fabricated ribbons that you stick on the top of gift boxes, making it the perfect present for yourself. I love the gold, but I'm thinking I need to have the pink version. This week!
Buy from Kate Spade for US $65.

A little Bittar Sparkle

Despite it being Spring in Australia, I'm loving this gorgeous bauble by Alexis Bittar. A combination of Swarovski crystal and freshwater pearls makes this ring the perfect pick for finger bling.

Buy exclusively through Saks for US $295.

Nam Cho Ruby Flower Necklace

I'm not normally one for floral, excessively girly things such as a flower pendant, but ME LIKEE this necklace!! It's delicate without being sissy and beautiful without being revoltingly girlish. Plus, the design, with its rubies and pink sapphires is timelessly chic.

Buy from Neiman Marcus for USD $1890.

Thomas Sabo - Join the Club

I'm doing another posting for my friend Emma. Sometimes I see jewellery that's so cute and hip, but just not me. Usually, this means that it is very Emma. That's exactly what I thought when I saw these Thomas Sabo charms (and watches too, mind).

This particular bunch (what is the collective noun for charms?) of charms is actually quite 80's, but you can mix and match to make a fabulous combo.

Catherine from work is wearing such a cool rock and roll combo of a sparkly guitar, an apple and an Asian dragon. It's like... *having epiphany*... a tattoo in a necklace. You can't buy these online in Oz yet, but a concept store has just opened up on George St, Sydney.

My Shiny Pretty Thing

Sorry - not the best photo unfortunately. I meant to post this months ago, but here we are.

MJ trying to be all Tom Binns

Marc Jacobs has missed the mark (sorry) yet again with his jewellery line. For someone who is so amazing with clothes - I don't understand what is going on with the jewellery line.

Take these earrings for example. If he had brought these out a year or 2 ago, no problem. But they are so similar to the quirky Tom Binns aesthetic that it borders on sad.

Anyway, if you still like them you can buy from Net-a-Porter for US $39.13.

For the foodie

Apologies that it has taken me so long to post! I have been flat out planning the wedding, preparing for bub and trying to do some work in the middle of everything!

The good thing is, my wallet has had a bit of a break from my frantic online shopping. The bad news is, that break is about to end.

As a ferociously hungry pregnant woman - I started drooling over this cute pendant from Lucy Folk. What do you guys think? Good enough to eat with some salsa? Buy through Assin in Sydney or online.
