The Hampton Classic Horse Show is a must see for those who love equestrian events. The venue is absolutely beautiful. The hunter courses are filled with beautiful jumps and exceptional greenery, and the jumper courses are colorful and grand. It’s plain fabulous. In vendor row, I picked up the wanderlust necklace from Jet Set Candy and…Read More
Black and White. Formal Bling.
Black and white are my default colors for accessories and clothing staples. I never regret choosing either one. They’re timeless and versatile. You could say ‘safe’. I choose ‘fabulous’. Don’t get me wrong. I love color and patterns. I just always feel polished, capable and comfortable in black or white. A white cotton shirt, a…Read More
Layered Luxe. Sparkling Silver.
There are times when your LBD needs some extra sparkle. It’s nice to be able to add a touch of elegance and a personal statement with your accessories. That’s exactly what my sister did for the Menlo Charity Horse Show Gala, benefitting the Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired this past August. She…Read More
Glam Bag. Something’s Fishy.
I’ve always wanted a jeweled evening bag. I have since learned there is a particular name for this type of bag. The definition from Wikipedia, “A minaudière is a women’s fashion accessory, generally considered a jewelry piece, intended to substitute for an evening bag.” That suits me just fine. I’m a fan of jewelry and…Read More
Equestrian Spirit. Horse Love.
I began riding at the age of ten and competed tirelessly in hunter, jumper and equitation divisions throughout my teen years. Once a girl falls for horses, it’s forever love. Even though life took me along a path to university and on to raising children, I never lost my passion. Doesn’t everyone want a pony?…Read More
Believe. Shine Bright.
Shine bright like a diamond. Rihanna’s words, and good ones at that. Really, wouldn’t it be nice if everyone believed in himself or herself? I think I can. I think I can. Those words belong to the Little Engine that Could. What a great little story for children and relevant at any age. Believing, trying,…Read More

I think every woman should have a pearl necklace in her collection. Even if not worn often, I guarantee you will find the right time and inspiration…Read More
Express Yourself. Big Time.
Watches are one of my favorite accessories. If I leave the house without a watch on it means I was in a rush, didn’t get enough sleep or have an issue or two to face that day. I rarely leave the house without a watch on. My daughter never really had any interest in watches.…Read More
Vintage Sparkle. Let it Snow.
Vintage jewelry is a favorite of mine. As a child I coveted my grandmother’s brooches and beads. They always looked so pretty and added a personal touch to every outfit. There’s mystery, history and the element of daring to be different when you find just the right piece. And the brooches in particular are often large…Read More
Great Energy. Feeling Pink.
I started this journey with kindfolio inspired by entrepreneurs that follow their passion and make beautiful things happen. This post is right on theme. The elegant and gorgeous rose quartz necklace is by The Right Hand Gal, a company founded by two sisters, Randi and Shawna. They are “…advocators of women’s empowerment, a core value…Read More
