My Galentine Rossmore LA

February 8, 2017


Years ago (before kiddos), Chris and I were renting a vacation condo in LA for a few weeks. One of my very good friends from high school lives there and we had gone out for lunch at a healthy cafe nearby. As I waited for her to return from the restroom, I saw Suzy (of Rossmore LA) sitting at a table, sorting tons of these beautiful, delicate silver rings in a million sizes. 

I wanted some! So, I introduced myself and asked her if they were for sale. She was separating them before delivering them to a boutique and offered me a good price. “These little rings keep my lights on,” she told me. I just fell in love with her. I bought a set of 5 silver rings- 2 I gave to the friend with me and I kept the other three for myself. Suzy’s story of her jewelry line, Rossmore LA, is wonderful from selling all her stuff to get it going and nearly giving up to finding her jewelry on Kate Bosworth and Jessica Alba to recently being on (and winning) the show Billion Dollar Buyer. 

Each piece is hand made. She calls her jewelry, “The broken noses,” as in each is not perfect and that is why they are beautiful. 

I have a skinny ring in gold and the few in silver. Now I wear them low in the traditional spot but the smaller sizes are meant to be worn on the higher knuckles and they are so super cute. The Heron ring is also a fave!

All her earrings are versatle and I love the small size. 

All three necklaces are so dear to me and you see that I am wearing one of them at all times. I wore them here together to give you an idea of scale. I love how the heart one is meant to be worn off to the side.

I want to invite you to a beach bonfire where I will be incinerating my Target tank tops and 2 black skirts AKA my signature new-mom wardrobe. Ha!

You know it’s always fun to shop for shoes, hats and JEWELRY in any situation!!!! Suzie of Rossmore LA (former post of Rossmore LA) was in my neighborhood this week. Check out her Instagram to see what’s new or back to stock. 

I also got to meet her friend, Courtney, owner/creator/designer of Maison du Soir, luxury loungewear, who you can find on

This of course got me SUPER excited about having my own business again and Chris gave me an idea of what might be a good fit. Can you guess??? Happy Monday!!!

Decor Updates
I’m posting on Mondays + some more nowadays. Today, after months on a wait list, I’m co-hosting Ashley of the Grits Blog’s “Little Friday” linkup. Ashley just lost her beloved dog and I’m sending her lots of love. 

Well…this is what happens when you are breastfeeding in the dark at 2 a.m., you troll Pinterest and fantasize you’re in one of those gorgeously decorated rooms. These pieces are completely overdone and so of course, I love them and must have them.

I see something 4 times = I covet.

You may recognize the rug from my profile photo background. P.S. I’m standing in that photo and only later realized it looked like I was lying down. It’s the West Elm Souk Rug. Well, funny thing…this was taken at a WEST ELM! HA! Please don’t turn me in, they would probably want to sue me or something for using their store in L.A. as my photo location. Look, honestly we just took the photo for the great lighting and it ended up being a good pic! Yes?

Campaign dressers remind me of something my grandparents may have. I want one in white! You can find some Ikea Hacks for making one of your own. A double would be really cool for a changing table. People do cool refurbishes of Craigslist finds. That’s something I may have done before a baby but unless I can breastfeed a wooden dresser into white laquer, I’m going to have to buy one this way. 

These Turkish Kilim pillows are SOOOO pretty and there are a bazillion color combos and patterns to choose from. I “favorited” some on Etsy and the shop owner of Ottoman Dream contacted me saying he’d give me free shipping if I ordered a few of them. Note to self: favorite anything I may want to order!

I’m pretty sure you can find a good sheep skin throw at Ikea too.

The pouf. OK, so it’s official, Morraccan is IN. From rugs to these pretty ottomans/extra seats. I love when they pair these with a glider in a baby room. They come in tons of colors. You can find deals on ETSY.

The chairs? Chris would DIE. This will never happen in our home. 

P.S. I just loaded this new design. There are some bugs I’m working out. If you find some, please let me know! Thanks!! XO

Current Polish Faves

So after we go on vacations, we naturally slip into money-saving mode. I’ve opted for home manicures this past week and here’s what I’ve dug out from under the sink. I usually buy Essie at Target. They have the best colors, selection and seem to dry quickly. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis pink is SO flattering. The other is like a rose gold/copper color and because of the thin/metallic formula, it lasted a bit longer than most of my home-polish jobs. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Even after a few color changes, I could see quick improvement in my home skillz. I get really obsessive about shellac nails-how they just stay sooo perfect and you can wash all the dishes-without-gloves you want or scrub any tub but still look like you have “people” to do that kind of thing for you. 

Thank you card nails

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetShellac is a must for vacations but I can forego the extra chemicals most of the rest of the time, ya know? Chris calls the shellac manicures “cave nails” because they perfectly endured wet spelunking in Belize! The cool thing is that in LA, the prices are pretty reasonable for shellac manicures. I believe they cost around $35.
