I Hate Mondays Giveaway! Win KidViskous Swag!

We don't even need to go into why Mondays totally suck (mine has been particularly crappy today), so in a effort to spread some love and lighten the blow that each Monday brings we're giving away some KidViskous swag! In time for Valentine's Day tomorrow, we're kicking off by giving away one of our fave pieces ever, our Venetian Blinders necklace in neon pink.
What I'm most proud of is that the double-layered aspect allows the wearer to have both a neon pink and a silver mirrored color, all in one necklace with just a flip!

To enter, go to the KidViskous Facebook page, "Like" our page then "Like" the photo we posted of our giveaway item. The winner will be chosen at random and announced next Monday, February 20th!


We're gonna do giveaway contests for our kick ass fans 1-2 Mondays a month, so check back here and our Facebook page for more contests. <3

Day 7: 50% Off JewelMint Bling With Code "fall112"


I know there are plenty of you out there who haven't even thought about the mounting holiday shopping list as it gets closer to Xmas/Hanukkah. I've definitely been guilty of sending "New Years" cards because I didn't get to sending Christmas cards out soon enough. If you're looking for a gift that literally keeps on giving, you can sign a friend/girlfriend/wife/anyone/cat/pirate/why not yourself up for monthly jewelry deliveries from JewelMint.com!

I'm stoked that the JewelMint team contacted me to help promote some stunning jewelry designed by bi-eye-colored actress Kate Bosworth and designer Cher Coulter. Certainly helped knock a day off my 12 Days of Xmas Gift Ideas list, and helps ease your emptying holiday wallet right away.
Here's a gift from me to you: Copy and paste fall112 at checkout for 50% off your first month of JewelMint, courtesy of the Los Angeles Mint Brand Ambassador Team.

And now for the real skinny: If you want to skip a month, you can. There's no obligation to buy anything your showroom suggests for you. You can also return/exchange within 30 days if you change your mind.

And if you forget, what's the harm in your loved one getting a little extra bling?

12 Days of Xmas - Day 1: The Light Keeper Set

I. Love. Christmas. Call me a sucker, but when the lights go up, the holiday songs start playing and everything has pumpkin spice in it, I get all tingly inside. Stealing Alexander Wang's idea, we're doing a 12 Days Of Christmas gifts countdown (A.Wang will certainly make it on our list) to inspire your holiday shopping this year. If anyone would like to send one of my picks over to me, feel completely free to do so!

 Kicking off the list is a beautiful sterling silver "The Light Keeper" necklace set by James Banks. It comes with a set of tool charms: a screw driver, tweezers and a funnel along with a real glass light bulb. But the real kicker? The lightbulb is filled with 30 loose black diamonds and then some.

Click through to read more:

Harmoniously working together, the purpose of the funnel and tweezers is to aid in switching out the jewels (or "the light") inside the light bulb. The filament can also be removed and worn as a charm. I love the ability to customize your necklace with this set, and how everything has it's utility: the bulb for keeping the light, screwdriver for opening the light, tweezers for choosing the light and the funnel for transferring the light. Being able to participate in the design process, however small a contribution, is always a welcomed element--although that might only be because I'm a jewelry designer myself!

How this set actually came to my attention was that one of the James Banks designers is Adam Shulman, a.k.a. actress Anne Hathaway's freshly minted fiance. Along with jewelrysmith Heidi Nahser Fink, who does stunning metal work herself, the duo has so far released a very small collection of antique-inspired necklaces.

The set comes in a beautiful leather "tool" pouch and a polished wooden box with instructions on how to use the precious tools. Any guy or girl will be thrilled to receive this set (I know I would), but with a $1,100.00 price tag, you may just want to keep it for yourself.

Check back tomorrow for #11!
