TRAVEL | San Ignacio, Belize

In the first part of our Belize Travel Guide, we shared our experience traveling around the cayes off the coast of Belize.

Not as many tourists take their time to head into central Belize towards San Ignacio, but we were certainly glad we did!  San Ignacio is located right on the...

STYLE | Rain, Rain, Go Away

After the past months of crazy wind storms and record-breaking-consecutive-rain-soaked days, it's safe to say that most people around here are welcoming Spring with open arms.

STYLE | Layering Guide 101

One of the questions I get very regularly... is about layering and combining our jewelry. Clients want the rule book to layering. Should their earrings match their necklace? How many rings is too many? They ask what things they shouldn't do and just how many pieces to wear together.

They were actually taken during Iulia and I's trip to Vancouver Island. It had been raining pretty hard while we were visiting, but no steady snow.

Desiree's Blog | Tis The Season For Sparkle

A girl should always have one pair of earrings that makes her sparkle in any outfit. For me, these Gold Aura Earrings are exactly that. I used to stray from any earring larger than a stud but when I created my jewelry collection with Kelsey, from KV Bijou, I couldn't help but adore this style for any occasion.  Desiree for KV Bijou was created as a versatile option for weddings and events that could...
