The month of love & chocolate is upon us and as we prep for a night out don’t forget about your accessories. I am obsessed with this beautiful two toned choker by Ettika. The lush bow is so romantic and the pink and camel tones are the perfect combination for Valentine’s Day. While wearing it, I was feeling very Brigitte Bardot. It’s so sexy and gives off that kitten vibe and I was feeling it! MEOW.

Just a reminder: Valentine’s Day isn’t only for couples it’s about celebrating love and if you’re single spend that time with your best friends or anyone that you may cherish. If you look at it from that approach – you will truly love the commercial holiday or you can just throw an Anti-Valentine’s day Party (LOL, there is always that.) Regardless, dress up because you’re too pretty not too!
My Weekend Recap:
Last minute brunch, followed by a manicure and pedicure with your best friend equals GOALS! I don’t know about you guys but as I get older I find it harder and harder to find time. I am constantly fighting the clock. How are we so busy that we go WEEKS, and in some cases MONTHS without seeing some of the people we cherish the most. I have gotten to a point where I make a conscious effort to “FIND THE TIME” literally penciling it into my calendar because after all – relationships matter. So – to get to my point, I have gone a couple of weeks without seeing my best friend of 20 something years (instant sad face) so, this weekend, I did not take no for an answer until she met me at a café in Cedar Grove, NJ called The Fine Grind. It’s this cool little spot with live acoustic jams and I just love the ambiance. Originally we planned to spend an hour together, you know to catch up, turns out that hour turned into 8 HOURS of laughs, boy talk and a trip to the nail salon. YES!!! I absolutely, love the spontaneity of our friendship. In the words of Baltasar Gracian …
“True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island… to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep her is a blessing.”
