I almost cannot believe it- this month marks the one-year anniversary of the Correspondence Club! I’m so thrilled by how the club has grown from less than 10 members to over 40 and I’m thankful for all of you that participate in the club and make this experience so fun for everyone!

With Valentine’s Day in the middle of the month, it was only natural that February’s theme was Loved Ones. I asked the CClub members to describe someone in their life that they love- a family member, friend, significant other, etc- and write about the things about them that they love. Also, you should definitely take a look at the posts that Kaitlyn, Kat and Anastasia wrote recently about the Correspondence Club!

Do you want to join the Correspondence Club in March? We’d love to have you! If you would like to participate in March, please use the link above to sign up by midnight on Friday (March 1st at 11:59pm EST).

I was so excited to have the opportunity to attend a preview event for the Kensie Jewelry 2013 collection last Friday! I headed straight from work to the event and when I arrived I was immediately delighted by the decor in their showroom. The decorations were pretty and whimsical and in the center of the room there was a huge table full of sweet treats, including my fave mini cupcakes from Baked by Melissa and macarons.

On top of the lovely decorations, the jewelry on display all around the room was so pretty! There are so many pieces that I would happily wear.  It was hard to pick favorites, but if I had to I would choose the fantastic black fringe necklace (first picture) or the necklace with spikes and chevron cutouts (below).

Before we headed home, we were allowed to choose one piece of Kensie clothing and also grab a gift bag with several Kensie jewelry pieces. As if things weren’t already good enough, I won one of the door prizes and received even more jewelry to take home! I had a great time hanging with The NY Collective and I’m not going to tell you how many cupcakes I devoured at the event (it was more than five :O). Thanks so much to Kensie for hosting such a fun preview!
