I Launched a Jewelry Brand!!

14 Nov

I’ve been a busy bee for the last 8 months watching my vision come to fruition and starting a jewelry business from the ground up! My website Love and gold Jewelry launched August 1st and I’m beyond grateful for the warm welcome as I step into the world of Demi- Fine jewelry. If you’ve been following my blog, then you already know I’m an avid jewelry collector. I have solid gold to costume jewelry and everything in between, so when brainstorming my brand I knew I wanted to provide quality jewelry AND fair prices, which is why I chose to only use gold filled and sterling silver. Demi-Fine jewelry is the sweet spot where quality and affordability marry.

What is gold filled jewelry? Gold filled consists of a thick layer of gold (we use 14k and 18k gold )that has been bonded through heat to a core metal (we use jewelers brass). Think of it like an ice cream sandwich- with ice cream in the middle being the brass and the cookie on both sides being the gold. Gold filled jewelry is great for sensitive skin. With its thick, resilient outer layer of gold, it ensures that your skin is only exposed to actual gold. With a little care, gold filled jewelry can last many years. It’s an amazing alternative to solid gold. It looks like gold, wears like gold, is hypoallergenic like gold, without the price tag of gold

From the designs, to the packaging, to partnering with skilled artisans and manufacturers to creating a website ( which was really HARD) I’ve poured my heart along with some sweat and tears into this brand and am thrilled with the outcome and how it’s been received as well. I also wanted to give a special thanks to everyone who has supported my new business whether it be following Love and Gold on social media and liking or commenting on my posts, to sharing my brand with your friends, to making a purchase and second and third purchases. It all is greatly appreciated as you are literally supporting my dreams.

With over 50 beautiful styles to choose from, Love and Gold jewelry has something for everyone. Check out my website to see what I’ve been up to 🙂 and be sure to Follow love and Gold on Instagram to stay in the loop. We’re also on Tiktok and Facebook @loveandgoldjewelry

Sheer Perfection!

2 Apr

Let me start by saying that I love all things pink.  I love any and every shade of the pretty color but I’m partial to blush.  Blush pink is so soft and feminine, looks great on all skin tones, and goes with everything…..which led me to a year-long search for the prettiest sheer pink nail polishes.

I’ve tried so many pinks along the way and have narrowed it down to my 3 favorites that I’m going to share with you today.  The colors below are perfect for year round wear, but I especially love wearing them in the Summer.

Starting with the sheerest of them all,  Essie Sugar Daddy is like your nails, only better. This color looks like you have really healthy nails- think nude with a hint of pink.

Next up, a slightly pinker -but still not too pink color is Essie Mademoiselle. It is sheer just like Sugar daddy but can build (2-3 coats) to a pretty milky pink.

Lastly, this super shiny pink(slightly more pink than the others)  is OPI Passion. This color is similar to the others and can be built up just like mademoiselle can be.

Pink heart shaped dutch oven under $45

30 Jan

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I found a heart shaped dutch oven that is a dupe for the very pricey Le Creuset version. Both are gorgeous, but the Le Creuset version will set you back $200. If that is out of your budget, no need to worry, just click HERE to shop the $45 version. I actually like the dupe better because it has gold detail.

Images of both versions are pictured below.

Flower Fields Fun!

7 Apr

As a southern California native, I’ve always heard about the Carlsbad flower fields. They bloom every Spring and thousands of people visit to experience the magical rows of ranunculus(My favorite flower) as well as other flowers. I finally made my way down to the San Diego area and visited the flower fields and was not disappointed. There were flowers as far as I could see, it was so beautiful. If you get a chance, the flower fields make the perfect Springtime day trip. Let me know in the comments if you’re planning to visit.

*There are plenty of picture opportunities that they provide, so there is no need to ever step/lay on any flowers.

New Year- New(affordable) Leggings.

4 Jan

Happy New Year, I wanted to start by saying thank you for following along here on my blog and on my social media platforms as well. It’s been a tough year, but we’re all in this together and I look forward to better days ahead for all of us.

I was recently introduced to 90 degree by Reflex leggings from my friend Nicole (Nicole Cripe Style). I have plenty of leggings and figured I didn’t need another pair, until I saw the price. They were $20!!! So I gave them a try and figured I could return them if they didn’t work out. Turns out, they’re AMAZING! I read the reviews and noticed a lot of comments saying that they ran small, so I ordered a size larger than normal and they fit perfectly. They’re not see through and are so flattering and the high waist band is smooth and doesn’t roll down. I can’t stop wearing them and am going to order a second pair, with the side pocket for my phone. I am beyond happy with these leggings.

Shop my exact leggings HERE. They also have tons of other styles in the $20-$24 price range.

Oil Free Moisture!

13 Oct

I don’t know about you, but since this pandemic has begun, I’ve been breaking out more than ever due to wearing a mask. I’ve exclusively used the same Origins cream nightly for years(powerful lifting cream), until recently when I added a new moisturizer (clear improvement)to my regimen. It’s basically an acne treatment & oil-free moisturizer in one- formulated with 1% Salicylic Acid to help clear and help prevent new breakouts. I’ve been using it for 2 weeks now and already see an improvement. I go back and forth between the clear improvement and the powerful lifting cream every other night and it’s been working out perfect for me. If you’re looking to moisturize while preventing breakouts, I highly suggest this product.

Cute & Comfy Hiking Boots!

14 Jul

Hiking is one of my favorite activities, I’ve been doing it for years- in sneakers. I had never really given any thought to getting hiking boots. I had nothing against them, but I just always threw on sneakers for workouts including hikes. Once the Covid-19 pandemic started, I started hiking more than ever and doing difficult hikes as well. I thought  hiking boots might be a good idea, and began to research. I quickly realized that Columbia hiking boots had some of the best reviews. What struck me as important is the fact that so many reviews mentioned comfort. People went on and on about how comfortable they were. Avid hikers raved about these boots. So I found some with pink laces(of course) and bought them without trying them on. I’m glad I did, they are cute, waterproof, easy to get on and off, and very comfortable- comfortable right out of the box!!! No breaking in needed at all. I have been on 4 hikes with them now and am so impressed. I can’t recommend these boots enough.

This style is called Newton Ridge. They’re available in other colors as well and are waterproof. Click Here to shop.
