Wedding Bands That Rock…

…Craving Some Really Good Metal?

Getting married soon and in the market for some fabulous wedding bands?  Visit for an array of unique styles in different metals, including platinum, white gold, yellow gold, titaniumtungsten and palladium!  Take a look at a few of my favorites… 


 The following are some facts about the wedding bands from, to help you before you begin your ring shopping:


It’s virtually scratch resistant, by far the hardest metal they carry.  It’s 10 times stronger than 14k gold and 4 times harder than platinum.  They have a lifetime warranty on all of their tungsten and can also do laser engraving on them!


This is an extremely rare, yet pure metal.  It is only found in a few places and is more rare then gold.  It’ll never fade or blemish and is made of PT950 platinum.


They offer three different karats ~ 10k, 14k, 18k in yellow and white gold.


Is extracted at the same time as platinum.  One of the whitest metals out there.

My sister and her fiance got their Tungsten Rings from and love them.  When they showed me the set, I was quite impressed…they were not only stylish and of great quality, but they were really affordable too.  Seriously, the rings they got are awesome! 

So deario cheerios, if you’re looking for a cool pair of wedding bands, be sure to visit their site.  They offer a huge selection for all different budgets…I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

To me, Spring is my absolute favorite season.  It’s fresh, it’s new…it’s the rebirth of not just flowers and trees as the snow melts beneath the grass, but it’s also rebirth of new fashion and style!  New colors, new ideas, new inspiration.  A chance to start over.  It’s also a popular wedding season.  I’m in!

Looking for Spring fashion and style inspiration for your wedding or every day?  Spring over to the guest blog I wrote for the Fashion Finds blog this week.  Or, visit my other fashion and style picks by viewing my Wishpot lists.  Happy Spring!

Eternal Love Turned Glam…

with one comment

…And Soared Right Into My Heart!

Ok, so I’m not writing a romance novel here, however this jewelry is most definitely glamorous and very romantic!  In chinese tradition, a pair of sparrows represent eternal love as the pair will live together until their partner dies.  Sparrows are also known to symbolize true love, dedication and trust…so do welcome this lovely little bird into your lives!

Wear one of these with your wedding ensemble if you’re looking for something a little outside the box! Or, instead, pair with a fab outfit for your bridal shower, bachelorette party or rehearsal dinner…to show off your heart soaring in love

Can You “Handle” These Heels? Mui Mui Teapot Shoes…

with 9 comments

…I’m Seriously Head Over “Heels” In Love!

When I found these drop-dead-gorgeous shoes created by Miuccia Prada on the Nordstrom blog, “From The Floor“, I couldn’t wait to show you them!  I realize that they’re from the Spring 2008 collection, so perhaps I’m a little late, but hey – they’re still adorable!

These beauties come in black patent adorned with gold trim accents and gold painted flowers.  The teacuplike handles on the heels would even make Alice In Wonderland swoon over them!  Just look:

I can’t stop staring at them.

Sadly, if you didn’t grab these shoes last Spring, you might be out of luck.  I can’t seem to find them anywhere!  However, you never know…a pair could pop up on Ebay one day.  If I happen to find these, I promise to share the news as to where.  As for now, a girl can dream, right?  So I’ve added a picture of them to the background on my computer.  I know, I’m a geek!
