Have you ever wanted something so bad you would take a spontaneous hour and a half drive on a Saturday just to go get it? I’m not going to lie people… I did this to go get macrons… This is a judgment free zone here okay, just want to make that clear! I was craving […]

There are no rules these days when it comes to engagement rings. American actress Meghan Markle recently wed Prince Harry and they opted for a traditional diamond engagement ring set in yellow gold. Harry, however, selected the center diamond, because it was a conflict-free mined diamond from Botswana, while the single diamonds on either side […]
