The term “City Slicker” usually doesn’t depict the nicest images when used, but I’m re-inventing the meaning into something more positive. Through my eyes when I hear the term the words that come to mind are “Edgy” “Upbeat” “Fast Paced” and “Night Owl.” As a matter of fact if I had a vision of what a City Slicker looked like this is what I’d envision. She stands out, but can blend in whenever she wants!
If you’ve been following me on Instagram you may have seen quite a few of sneak peeks of the new Spring Collection, which will be launching in the next couple weeks. Well here’s another one for you! Thanks to everyone who’s “Liked” the new chain rings, I have a feeling that’s going to be a favorite this season. What are some of your favorite looks for the spring? Leave a comment!
I wouldn’t consider myself a “HUGE” fan. I know some people are probably thinking…REALLY? It’s true, I was never the girl that “needed” to be taken out to dinner every year on the 14th of February. If you want to buy me flowers, buy them for my birthday in April when the cost of them are significantly lower! However, I’m not a party pooper and for me I love to see people go out and celebrate the “Day of Love.” What I do like to see are the creative ways that people show their “love” for their partner or spouse. There’s something that’s so special about “Personalized Love.” Tailoring something or an idea specifically to a person’s interest, taste or likes is AWESOME. For instance, if your mate likes tea maybe try creating a tea blend with his/her favorite flavors in a personalized package, similarly to Honeysuckle Tea Company or Adagio Teas .
This Valentine’s Day the jewelry piece I’ve created falls right into the “Personalized Love” category. Engraved by hand, I’ve created a two tone silver and gold necklace with a gold brass bar pendant that can be customized to your lover’s liking. I believe in giving gifts that are close to the heart! For more details please check out the listing on my Etsy site.

Most of us wear some sort of metal jewelry on a daily basis. Whether it’s your favorite silver necklace or cute silver stud earrings, there’s one thing we all HATE…it’s the dark gray stuff called tarnish. Now if you wear your metal jewelry daily, it’s a good idea to clean it every now and then, I recommend every 3-4 months. There’s no 100% way to prevent tarnish, it happens to all metal jewelry pieces, but there are ways to slow down the tarnishing process. Here are 3 easy and inexpensive ways to help lessen the tarnish on your jewelry pieces.
These are a wonderful low cost investment. You can purchase either the strips or the cloth and line your jewelry box. I personally prefer the cloth since I have my jewelry stored in various jewelry boxes. Be sure not to wash the cloth–it will lose its anti-tarnishing properties if you do. You can also use these strips and cloth on sterling silver, silver plate, brass, copper and bronze metal jewelry.
2. Zip lock plastic bags
You can go right to your kitchen pantry or cupboard to get these. However, I like the smaller ones which you can pick up at Michaels or Walmart. It’s a good idea to store 1 item of jewelry per a bag. Be sure that you squeeze all the air out of the bag when zipping the bag closed.
3. Clear top coat nail polish
This should NOT be used on your fine silver or sterling silver jewelry. I only use this on my brass, copper and bronze jewelry. Be sure to use nice thin coats and you can apply 2-3 times. As far a re-applying, it depends on how often you wear your metal jewelry. If you wear your jewelry on a daily basis, you can reapply every 2 months or so.
I hope these easy tips work for you. Do you have any great tips on cutting down tarnish on your jewelry? Leave a comment–would love to hear from you. Be sure to follow my blog or get added to my list for more great jewelry tips and other neat tidbits.
