Sneak Peak

Sneak Peak

I'm really excited about my autumn line. Today I photographed dozens of new items. One of the colors I was most startled by was the understated champagne. When I made the decision to add it to the fall palette, I thought it was too bland to subdue my personal craving for color. But... once I saw several of the new styles of earrings, I decided that I wanted a pair of each for myself!

The color is even lovlier in person: slightly ivory with a subtle glimmer. I have a feeling that this color is going to be a staple in my store! Is there a specific color you'd really like to see?

The Story Behind the Name

I really love hugs. In my opinion, the very best kind of hug is the two-handed standy-uppy hug. It started as an inside joke with my family, and the name still makes me smile. It’s a completely intentional kind of hug that really shows someone you value them. How do you give one? Put down whatever is in your hands, mentally set aside whatever is on your mind, focus on the person you are going to hug, stand up and wrap them up in a big squeeze. It may not seem like a big deal, but taking 30 seconds to give someone a sincere hug can totally change their day.
