Waves by Rebecca Mir Grady

I love the new jewelry pieces from Rebecca Mir Grady! For her Waves Collection, Rebecca was inspired by the coastlines of Maine and the peaks of the Rocky Mountains. I’m very dazzled by her pieces with diamonds and sapphires and I love knowing that, for all the years I’ve known her, Rebecca only uses ethically-sourced stones and recycled fine metals. The way the rings fit together are so pretty and would make amazing modern, but still timeless, engagement and wedding sets. Also, there are dreamy anniversary gifts, birthday gifts, and milestone gifts throughout all the new designs. I’m especially crazy for the Dash Diamond Earrings, the Half Dash Diamond Earrings, the Hexagon Diamond Earrings, the Azure Sapphire and Diamond Ring, the Oaxaca Diamond Ring, and the small Hexagon Diamond Pendant Necklace. It’s also important to note that Rebecca often donates a percentage of her sales to the ACLU and Planned Parenthood — I’m so thankful for that. More HERE.

Hello! Happy almost weekend, friends. I hope you get to spend the weekend with loved ones and Happy Mother’s Day to those of you with kiddos. I have so many amazing ladies in my life who are helping to raise a wonderful generation and some who have already raised fantastic humans. I know there are many more of you out there. I’d also like to recognize that this isn’t the easiest holiday for a lot of women and men (hi! I’m with you!) for a lot of reasons. Some of us are childless not by choice and have been down very painful paths, some of us don’t have mothers or don’t have loving mothers, some have lost their mothers, some have to celebrate and mourn at the same time, some have lost their children… I see you and you’re all in my thoughts along with the amazing moms. It can be hard to be at the social media party for this one, so if you’re in this camp with me — I recommend avoiding social media portals this weekend and just be kind to yourself. Do things that make you happy, treat yourself to something special, and remember: You are not alone. xx Jen

Secrets & Things Linen

While down the linen rabbit hole a little while back, I fell for Secrets & Things made by Virginija out of her home studio in Vilnius. My favorites are the Blue Linen Holiday Robe Dress, the Linen Pants with Snaps, the Grey Linen Summer Pants, the Grey Linen Robe, the White Washed Linen Robe, and this Linen Camisole and Shorts Pajama Set. Really, all the bedding, the tablecloths, and linen napkins would be wonderful to have. Plus, those handmade home goods would make fantastic wedding gifts since that season is fast approaching and they are a very good deal. All the things, please! More HERE.
