Christmas Sparkle

DWA-152

‘Tis the Season for JOY & LOVE

‘Tis the Season for SHARING & GIVING

 

ABOUT GIFTING…

DWA-125 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…

FALLing FOR THE ARTS

GalleryMONEY

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. When I crossed the gallery’s threshold, I was immediately captivated by the PASCAL exhibit.  The artist, Pascal Pierme  is a sculptor who works with precious woods. The way he describes working with the natural organic woods…is reminiscent of my personal conversations with Master Diamond Cutter, Sir Gabriel S. Tolkowsky. “Gabi”, as he is known to his closest friends, cut many of the world’s most famous diamonds and I was privileged to accompany him on his US tours for two consecutive years.  I learned that organic treasures (e.g.  natural diamonds and precious woods) participate

Cooking-up Sparkle Scottsdale, AZ

cooking-up  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 …

PACKING for HSN Gem Event

BLOG Pic #1 FINAL I started packing for the upcoming HSN Gem Event by organizing not only the new diamond jewelry for the on-air show, but ALSO critical products for beauty emergencies  …after all it is Live TV!  I DO NOT use a small zip-lock bag; that  3-1-1 rule is NOT for me! I have treasured HENRI BENDEL BAGS for years and  I would never leave my Bendel Bags behind.  All of my FULL SIZE beauty essentials pack perfectly in my Classic Henri Bendel Train Case and I can quickly see/get every product without shuffling around frantically!  (Did I mention I am packing for live TV? )  Waiting for my checked luggage is a small investment for having everything I want ….and everything I could possibly need for every beauty challenge!  Again, it’s live TV with no rehearsals and NO Do- Overs!

Jewelry Online Shopping

This post is about Jewelry ONLINE Shopping, but I can’t even begin without acknowledging that I love the experience of shopping in a Fine Jewelry Store! Only in a store can you try-on and feel the jewels touch our skin while shopping.  Part of the alluring experience is also hearing interesting facts or stories about the jewelry from someone knowledgeable or “in the know”.  Whether I speak to the curator who carefully chose the items or I listen to a jewelry professional who knows how to tell a story that is worthy of fine jewels….visiting fine jewelers is just fun! I have to admit, however, that I also love Jewelry Online Shopping!  I enjoy shopping from my bedroom, at a spa (while I am impatiently waiting for my masseuse), while I am preparing dinner (and waiting for something to finish cooking) or relaxing next to my pool…even on my mobile while I am waiting in some unbearable line for something! I know, I know…I am not a patient person and I am not capable of idle “waiting time” for anything! Maybe I should learn to meditate?

Jewelry Online ….the Allure
