‘Tis the Season for JOY & LOVE
‘Tis the Season for SHARING & GIVING
ABOUT GIFTING…Gifts given at Christmas (or during The Festival of Lights), should be worthy of this magical holiday season! This means your gift should keep your loving celebrations remembered and enjoyed for years and years. This is NOT the time for fast food, fast fashion or money wasted on gifts with no meaning or value. It’s the time to add some Christmas Sparkle to our Life (and others’) with gifts of lasting value and real meaning, magic and mystery.
MEANING, MAGIC & MYSTERY…
The Colors of Diamonds are the Colors of Life…. and now is the time to Color me Autumn!
Here are my three favorite Sparkling Steps to Beat the Heat:
#1 Test the WatersYou can take your mind off of the temperature and thermostat by a quick escape to a pool or the ocean. I always feel cooler near the water…
MARSALA GEMSTONE CHOICESThere are so many seductive gemstones that sparkle-up Pantone’s Color of the Year, MARSALA….
I love the Christmas Season, but it is so refreshing to find a city that does not rush Christmas décor before Thanksgiving (which is my favorite holiday, for sure) …and Scottsdale is THE find, because they are still celebrating Fall in November! Here, I am Falling for the Arts at The Calvin Charles Gallery. This gallery is Scottsdale’s premier contemporary art gallery and the most beautiful custom building in the Scottsdale Art District.

I think it is common knowledge that Romance, Diamonds AND Food go together! Famous love stories and memorable wedding proposals seem to always include romantic fires being kindled over dinners. Also, REAL WOMEN EAT… and great food sparkles my spirit, as well as fuels my travels. Searching for the next great chef, however, is better left to food critics and food bloggers. As for me: “I’m a woman of simple tastes; I’m always satisfied with the best“. Yes, I am paraphrasing from the over-quoted Oscar Wilde (he said “man” instead of “woman”), but true it is! I am fortunate to have experienced the signature plates of great luminaries like Joel Robuchon, Thomas Keller, Danielle Boulud, Alain Ducasse and Jose Andres. Oh, the luminary luxuries of fine dining experiences! So, my Scottsdale travel itinerary included a beautiful afternoon with the Italian cuisine of the Award Winning Italian Chef Marcellino Version at MARCELLINO RISTORANTE. For foodies, I listed all of his luminary experiences and awards at the end of this blog. For everyone else, here is some info on my Sparkling Jewelry from HYDE PARK JEWELERS …
