This bag is the most clever little thing I have seen in a long, long time. It's a great alternative for a diaper bag too. Check out Show Pony's shop for more fun designs. Oh, and be sure to view their darling dish towels.

I have fallen in love with Karel Jewelry Designs. Her jewelry is simply breathtaking.

This probably sounds a bit silly but I do feel pretty when I slip a piece of her jewelry on. I somehow transfer from mom to a woman ready to be taken out on the town, even if just for a moment. It is that last special piece to your outfit that will take it up just a notch more. Although some of you may find the prices just a touch high, trust me when I say that the quality is superb. The gemstones used are absolutely beautiful and the pieces never feel too heavy or awkward. It was like they were meant to be worn, by you of course. My favorite piece, okay well two favorite pieces are the Aussie Princess necklace and the Chrysalis earrings. What is your favorite piece?
