Heart #123 goes to...the "Forever Love" 12 Diamond Spinning Band Personalized Ring

Heart #123 goes to...the "Forever Love" 12 Diamond Spinning Band Personalized Ring.  This is one beautifully handcrafted ring.  I can say so because I just got mine, and I had a friend comment on how stunning it is and how well made it is.  The center band spins round and round to show you the two personalized names.  It is made from solid sterling silver and has sparkling diamond pave borders and 12 genuine diamonds.  The inside of the ring reveals a cutout heart pattern.  It really is so pretty and I find myself admiring it and spinning the center band all day long.  This ring is priced at $129 or 4 installments of $32.25.  Available in sizes 5 to 12 and half sizes too....Valentine's Day is just around the corner! hint hint

Heart #122 goes to...the Big Skinny Wallet

Heart #122 goes to...the Big Skinny Wallet!  I am always on the eternal quest for the wallet that is just right.  Right now, that wallet is the Big Skinny Executive Checkbook Bi-Fold Wallet with zippered pocket in pink.  I found this in a little boutique and the girl working there assured me that it was a great wallet and that every girl working there was carrying one.  She even showed me hers.  I have a bit of a wallet problem, as well as a pocketbook problem and let's be honest,  I have a problem with boots.  But, let's stick to one problem at a time.  Sometimes my wallet is so spacious and that leaves me with a whole lot of room to shove all kinds of receipts and papers in it.  That's great until I need to find something and I end up needing a file cabinet when I'm done.  There is absolutely no reason to carry that much paperwork in my wallet.  When I transferred everything into my new Big Skinny, I did have a few things left over but I quickly realized that I really didn't need them. This wallet is awesome.  It doesn't end up being big and bulky and everything fits.  It is so organized now and it has remained that way for the past month, through all of my Christmas shopping too!  Click this link and you can look at all of the different types of wallets that Big Skinny makes.  There's even a men's wallet.  The one pictured above is $25.95 and you won't be sorry.  It comes in a bunch of different colors too.

Heart #121 goes to...the Umbra Dandisleeve

Heart #121 goes to the Umbra Dandisleeve!  How can you not want one of these?  These will certainly make my Dunkin*Donuts coffee cup look real cute.  But not only that, you can slip these on so many of your existing cups or glasses that you have at home.  It is made of a flexible, but sturdy, plastic and it sells for $4.99 at one of my absolute favorite stores...The Container Store!  They make great stocking stuffers!  The pink one in the picture is called the Dandisleeve and then they also have the Handisleeve, like the green one in the picture.  The Handisleeve also comes in black and red.

Heart #120 goes to...Retro Handset by Yubz

Heart #120 goes to...Retro Handset by Yubz!  Don't you miss the good old days, talking on the phone with one of these?  Well, now you can talk on your cell phone with a retro handset.  Imagine what that would look like in public?

  Or riding as a passenger in a car and talking on the phone with one of these cool colored handsets?  They plug right in to your cell phone, but be sure to check the website here to make sure you have the right one.  There are five adapters included, but I think that Apple IPhone 4 needs a New Edition handset.
Oh also reduces radiation by a minimum of 96%!!!
These handsets come in Fire Red, Florida Orange, Jet Black, Meadow Green, Orchid Purple, Chalk Pink, and Sky Blue.

Heart #118 goes to...Dyson DC31 Handheld Animal Vacuum Cleaner

Heart #118 goes to...Dyson DC31 Handheld Animal Vacuum Cleaner!  Can't believe I've let this much time go between posts, but since I love my Dyson Handheld Animal Vacuum Cleaner so much I just had to blog about it.  I got this about 2 weeks ago and all I need now is a cute bag to carry it around with me...because I ACTUALLY DO carry it around.  It comes with an AC/DC power adapter and battery charger, a combination accessory tool, a crevice tool and a motorized brush bar.  All Dyson handheld vacuums have a 2 year warranty.  It sells for $269.99 and you can get one on here.
I charge it and then it comes with the car for a quick pickup, at work to clean up around my desk, and home for all those moments when dragging out the vacuum is not necessary.  It's so powerful and works great!  I feel like the Lara Croft of the vacuum world!  Looking forward to my next Dyson product...the Dyson ball vacuum...I'll let you know about that when I get it!

Heart #114 goes to...Hunter 'Verbier' Rain Boots

Heart #114 goes to...Hunter "Verbier" Rain Boots.  I didn't post much this summer, but fall is just around the corner, and with that comes cooler weather and the rain!  The weather forecast is showing rain in the next day or two due to Hurricane Earl.  There's nothing I love more than BOOTS!  These Hunter boots are different and I love the red corset-style lacing up the back.
The approximate heel height is 3 inches.  These boots sell for $175 at Nordstrom.  Putting them on the wish list!


Sorry about the fact that I haven't posted anything for about 25 days...shame on me.  It's been a busy summer, but as of today I will try my hardest to post once a day!

Heart #113 goes to...Ralph Lauren Childrenswear Girls' Military Coat

Heart #113 goes to...Ralph Lauren Childrenswear Girls' Military Coat!  I love this, but I hate that it's only for children.  Actually, maybe the XL might fit...
It's $160 at Bloomingdale's and it looks nice and cozy for the fall.  The military look is very in for the fall and I love military looks...especially camouflage!
Here's a few different views...
The Ralph Lauren engraved belt buckle.
Mock neck collar with two buttons and webbed cotton belt with metal slider buckle.

Heart #112 goes to...Pineapple Salsa from Trader Joe's

Heart #112 goes to...Pineapple Salsa from Trader Joe's.  This is a great, not too spicy, light and delicious salsa that is great for eating with chips or using as a marinade.  Make sure you buy more than one jar because you will end up finishing the first jar the first time you try it and you will wish you had more.  And it's only $1.99 for a 12ounce jar.

Heart #109 goes to...Calvin Klein "Kaylor" Platform Pump

Heart #109 goes to...Calvin Klein "Kaylor" Platform Pump!  I'm going to a wedding today, wearing a gorgeous black jumpsuit (so elegant) and these pumps!  They are so comfortable, but the true test will be after wearing them for 5 or 6 hours and lots of dancing.  Got these at Bloomingdale's but I can't seem to find a link to them there.  So I will link the shoes to Amazon where you can find them in black and light grey for $97.26.  Click here...
looks more silver to me than light grey...

Heart #108 goes to...Smooze Fruit Ice

Heart #108 goes to...Smooze Fruit Ice!  This 100% natural, with real fruit purees and juices, icy treat is sooo delicious.  I was at Whole Foods the other day and there was a whole display right near the register I was at.  So, I quickly jumped off the line and grabbed the first box I could without really looking to see which flavor it was.  I'm very satisfied with my choice of coconut and mango, the box is just about empty (they come 10 to a box).  There are three other flavors as well...

I just spent a few minutes looking for the receipt from Whole Foods so that I can tell you how much each box of 10 costs, but I threw it out.  I will come back and post a price as soon as I find out.  I'll probably be heading over to Whole Foods to buy a new flavor anyway. 
Let me also give you a few facts on this product:
*rich in vitamin C
*dairy free
*gluten free
*0% preservatives
*0% cholesterol
*0% trans fat
*low fat
Smooze Fruit Ices are packed on a farm located on the Equator in East Sumatra, Indonesia.
You can also buy them at Amazon by clicking this link.

Heart #107 goes to...Marc by Marc Jacobs Pretty Little Tate Lip-Dot Print Nylon Tote!  During my recent browse through Bloomingdale's I stumbled upon one of my favorite totes (I have the all black print pictured below) in a new Lip-Dot print.  I love the two outside long narrow pockets on either side, all the inside pockets and the magnetic closure.  It's roomy and looks great and sells for $158!  Check out the website for a whole bunch of other prints.  Oh, and the logo it!

Heart #106 goes to...Via Spiga "Tandy" Espadrilles!  I found these really comfortable sandals at Bloomingdale's the other day.  They are originally $175, but with the sales and coupons that I had I got them for $50!  They come in fuchsia, walnut and white.  I can't stress enough how comfortable they are.  I had them on for about 5 hours the same day I bought them.  Love them!

Heart #105 goes to...Skinny Italian by Teresa Giudice

Heart #105 goes to...Skinny Italian by Teresa GiudiceLove, love, love this book.  And that is how Teresa Giudice signed my book this past Tuesday at her book signing at Limoncello Restaurant in Mamaroneck, NY.  She was fashionably late, not too much, but that gave me time to skim through most of the cookbook.  It's filled with color pictures and tons of stories told Teresa style.  She's funny.  And she also sets the record straight on how to pronounce her last name..."It's not Jew-Dice, as Andy Cohen of Bravo says, but more "JUDY-CHAY" said very fast with the emphasis on JUThanks Teresa, because I was pronouncing it wrong and so was everyone I spoke to at the signing.  Now, I can't wait to try out the recipes!
Love, love, love!
Here's a picture of Teresa right before she signed my book, wearing a Jay Godfrey 'Mercer' Liquid Jersey Minidress, which can be found here for $250.

and yes, that's her husband Joe with his back to the picture, right behind her.

Heart #104 goes to...Joby Gorillapod Flexible Tripod

Heart #104 goes to...Joby Gorillapod Flexible Tripod!  I ordered this last week and I love it.  I used it over the weekend at a friend's rehearsal dinner party and I'm glad I had it.  I didn't end up using it as a tripod, but as an extension to the camera that I was holding up in the air to get a better view of the speeches being given.  I used mine with my Flip Mino HD camera.  There are a few to choose from, I ordered the Gorillapod Magnetic.  It holds up to 11.5oz.  It sells for $24.95.  This is a must have!

Heart #103 goes to...Tea Carousel from Get Organized!

Heart #103 goes to...Tea Carousel from Get Organized!  Since I have stopped drinking coffee I drink a lot of tea.  I have boxes and boxes of different teas in my cabinet and I think this would keep it a little neater.  It fits 60 tea bags and only costs $2.99 (was $14.99).  I might get two because I really think it will give me more space.

Heart #101 goes to...Slider Grilling Basket by Williams Sonoma

Heart #101 goes to...Slider Grilling Basket by Williams Sonoma!  Barbecue season is here and these items just make it easier to grill really cool things.  I've already blogged about the meatball basket in a previous post and this caught my eye too.  Sometimes you just don't want a huge burger, especially if you've got so many foods to choose from at a barbecue.  With this you can grill 12 yummy sliders securely without the worry of them falling through the grates, and it's dishwasher safe too.  This item sells for $29.95.  A necessary accessory for this item is the Square Slider Burger Press pictured below for $26.95.  There are convenient markings to indicate 1/4 lb or 1/2 lb burgers and it's made from durable cast aluminum with a nonstick finish.
