Beautiful Little Somethings for the Holidays

The holidays are here, and while regular shipping deadlines have passed, you can still ask for a gift card or an IOU. And...if you don't get what you want this year, there's nothing wrong with treating yourself to a little something! Perhaps I know why my husband worries about my spending...

Regardless-here are some gorgeous little pieces that won't break the bank.


One of my favorite new looks is a wood watch. The look is trendy and rich, but not over the top. I came across Jord Watches a few months ago, and I am so impressed with them. 

Jord Wood Watches is a company that is focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. They "value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. We make our watches for people who don't just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go."

My watch (pictured above) is Jord's Cora watch in Zebrawood and Turquoise. It has sapphire crystal glass, Swarovski crystal markers, it is self-winding and splash-proof. Cora comes in several different woods and several different face colors. Jord Watches also still delivers with a discounted expedited shipping fee in time for Christmas!

If you're looking for a beautiful timepiece, look into Jord. They have watches for men and women, and they have so many different styles. I'm in love with mine!


I have never been very adventurous when earrings are concerned. I only wear studs or tiny huggies. Yes, I'm a little set in my ways. Kris Nations really understands me! They make the cutest little studs that are perfect for the minimalist, or for a second piercing.

I love these little turquoise studs. They are bezel set, and are 3mm. They are set in 18K gold vermeil. Kris Nations has so many cute earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings, and they are very reasonably priced. I'm so happy with these little studs, I will definitely be purchasing additional pairs.

The holiday shipping deadline from Kris Nations has already passed, but they do have online gift cards. You may not be looking for the holidays, but these are seriously a fantastic find!


Maybe it won't come as a surprise that as a lover of all things preppy, I went crazy for these hot pink pearls from Hazel & Marie. I came across the boutique on Instagram, and finally just HAD to order them!

I love that Hazel & Marie's love of pearls story began much like mine. They recall getting their ears pierced, their first pearl studs, and how pearls marked milestones in their lives. They say that they "learned how important style and quality are to following in the footsteps of the Iconic American Women depicted in High Fashion Magazines." How lovely is that thought? 

For me, my parents bought me my first strand of pearls for my 16th birthday. My brother and I were on a long weekend vacation from boarding school, and we met my sister and parents for a trip to Disney World. My father died unexpectedly about 6 weeks later. I don't associate the two with sadness, but they are extremely precious to me. I think this is for many reasons. My 16th birthday, my first major piece of jewelry, a gift from my parents, and except for my first two days home for spring break weeks later, the last time I would see my dad. So, there begins my personal pearl story. 

Over the years, I've collected different sizes and colors of pearls, but when I came across the hot pink Betty Necklace and studs from Hazel & Marie, I absolutely fell in love! They are from a Limited Edition collection for SHOKAY classic pearl single strand necklace with oversized natural freshwater pearls. The necklace is an 18" single strand of hand knotted, round ringed cultured pearls. There is a sterling silver clasp and a signature Hazel & Marie tag. The SHOKAY collection comes in a variety of colors, and also includes bracelets.

Hazel & Marie doesn't just make pearls in vibrant colors! They carry a full line of classic pearl jewelry. Their entire line is absolutely to die for.

If you're looking for a special little something for someone else, or for yourself (come on, the holidays can be stressful!), please check out these three companies. They are definitely lines that are becoming huge. How about being a major trendsetter to start 2017?!
