ropes, chains & all those thangs

I love statement pieces.  The right accessory adds the perfect amount of pop to a finished look.  What do you think about these bold rope chain beauties?

Inspirational Foresight

Did anyone see Oprah's last show yesterday?  I DVR'd it and decided to play it back as I was cooking dinner last night...Her "love letter" to "us" was a bit preachy, but for the most part I enjoyed listening to her power ramble ;)  This one statement she made still resonates with me, "You have to know what sparks the light in you, so that you, in your own way, can illuminate the world."  So true. 

What sparks the light in you?  Light it up, and let it rip!

He also brought home this Solar Maiko (now proudly sitting on my work desk) -watch her get down! Haha!
