What the left hand is known for: loyalty and fidelity.  Romantic expectations and vows honored, usually enshrined in platinum and diamonds.

However, your right hand — that lucky minx — gets to be a little bit naughtier.

A Phantom cuff and rings from Hoorsenbuhs. Smith/Nelson

Take the Hoorsenbuhs ring above, for example.  It’s the perfect right hand ring.  Even its name is bold and a bit risque: the Dame Phantom II.  This sounds more like a superhero’s car than a ring, but this is appropriate for the amount of vrrooom it gives off.

What we also love: the interplay of sweetness and edge.  Sweetness: the rose gold.  Edge: black diamonds.  This is clearly the accessory — and jewelry line — for a woman both feminine and powerful.

Like any sassy dame, the Hoorsenbuhs ring comes with a great story to tell.  Designer Robert Keith named his company after a ship owned by his Dutch ancestors, who ferried precious metals and gems around the world.

It’s no wonder, then, that his current creations exude a sense of adventure.

Once only available for custom orders, Hoorsenbuhs jewelry has been a huge hit since becoming available at Barneys New York.

Spotted on celebs like the Katie Holmes and the Olsens, this 18k gold and diamond ring takes a relatively traditional horsey design and sparks it with bling. Bold and unisex, it is available at Barneys for USD $5,000. I could see this as a really nice wedding set – it also comes in sterling silver with gold beads for $1500 and in a slightly modified design (the Dame Phantom II) with fewer diamonds. Get it now before the price of gold goes up AGAIN.

La Toya Jackson Pays Tribute To Her Brother Michael In New Book ‘Starting Over’

1 Aug Latoya-Jackson-Book-Signing-2011-400394A

Photo by David Livingston/Getty

Author La Toya Jackson attends a signing for her book “Starting Over” at Barnes & Noble at The Grove on June 28, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

La Toya Jackson was always closer to Michael than anyone knew. In this heartfelt memoir, she pays tribute to his tortured soul—revealing the intimate moments she shared with the deeply troubled pop legend. The first sibling to arrive at the hospital after Michael was rushed there, and the informant on his death certificate, La Toya noticed suspicious details and demanded a second autopsy.

For the first time, she unveils shocking behind-the-scenes dealings that she believes led to her brother’s death, and she provides unprecedented insight into the destruction of one of the most dynamic artist/performers in history.

In an account sure to send shock waves around the globe, La Toya sheds new light on the dynamics of the Jackson family and the curtain of secrecy and intrigue that has surrounded her brother Michael, and the rest of the Jackson children, since they became stars in the ’60s and ’70s.

She explains her estrangement from— and gradual reconciliation with—one of America’s most famous and close-knit families. Like Michael, La Toya experienced an upbringing that made her vulnerable to exploitation, and her own journey led to hell and back at the hands of her former manager and husband, Jack Gordon.

Sharing with honesty and an open heart some of the most painful episodes of her life story, La Toya reveals how anyone—regardless of fame, fortune, or status—can be trapped in a cycle of abuse, and how she was able to…

This bronzer is pretty lightweight and sheer and is great on its own. It’s perfect on the days when you don’t feel like doing the whole foundation routine.

Beauty tips to slim your face

Contouring and highlighting your face can bring out your cheek bones, shorten your nose, slim your face and rid you of a double chin. Here’s how to do it …1.“Think of your face as a canvas,” explains Thomas. Once you’ve applied foundation to even out your complexion you need to shade and highlight areas to create shape. Think of the principles of light and dark — any areas made darker will appear as though they’re receding, and anything made lighter appear as though it’s coming forward.2.“I think the easiest product to use is a bronzing powder without too much shimmer,” explains Thomas. Always start with a little on your brush and build it up gradually.3.Begin by building your cheek bones. To do this, add a little bronzer below your cheek bone, from the hairline to towards the apples of your cheek, in a wedge-like shape. This trick is especially good for women who have very round faces. “[Contouring is] all about reshaping your face and giving it sharper edges — you can never have too-high cheek bones,” says Thomas.4. To make a wide or very round forehead appear narrower, shade just the temples or sides of the forehead, and to slim a wide nose, apply the bronzer down the sides of your nose. Want your nose to appear shorter? Shade the underside of the tip.

5. Disguise a double chin by shading the area under your jaw line. Blending is key in contouring your face — the idea is that you can’t see where the contouring starts and stops.

6. If you don’t have deep-set eyes (ie lids that are still visible when your eyes are open), make them pop by shading along the crease line. Do this either with the bronzer or an eyeshadow that’s a shade darker than the colour you’ll wear.

7. To bring areas of your face forward, thus emphasising them, do the opposite to contouring and use a highlighter (most likely a shimmery powder a bit lighter than your skin colour). The areas you want to do this to are your new-found cheek bones, and the centre of your eyelids. When it comes to your lips, dab a lighter lip shade or illuminating cream just in the middle of them.

Contouring and highlighting your face can take a little practice, but as Thomas says, “Once you start, you’ll want to do it every day.” His tip: try it next time you have a big event coming up and take note of how you look in photos taken on the day. “People in film, TV and pictures can’t live without [this trick].”

NB: You don’t have to use a bronzer and highlighter to do this make-up trick — darker and lighter foundations can be used as well.

Mojuba Wedding Day Emergency Kit Handbag For The Bride With A True Emergency!

6 Jul bride2


Looking for a great bridal shower gift?

The bride will love this ultimate wedding day survival kit

Attention, brides! We have someone we’d like you to meet. Jackie James is the creator of the one thing no wedding should be without: an insurance policy. James owns Mojuba Wedding Day Emergency Kits, fun little bags filled to the brim with solutions to any and every problem that Murphy’s Law (and Mothers-in-law) can possibly manifest on the big day. We’re talking everything from pre-threaded needles and shoe cushions, to L’Occitaine hand cream and a couture stain removal kit. James has thought of it all, because she’s seen it all. The kits are the culmination of her nearly 20 years of experience planning weddings and events for local bigwigs like Lettuce Entertain You and The Pump Room, as well as for her own wedding-planning business.

Mojuba began with a simple mission: to help brides and grooms experience a magnificent, memorable, stress-free wedding. Ask any couple about their wedding day, and you’ll hear about the fine champagne, the romantic dance, and the kiss-but they’ll also divulge that the bride’s lipstick got smudged, their shoes hurt their feet, or that they made the mistake of eating garlic at lunch.

Bride and Groom Mojuba Wedding emergency kits are luxurious bags that contain a collection of stylish, must-have items that brides and grooms need to feel confident that the wedding day is absolutely perfect for everyone involved.

What if…?

  • Your bridesmaid spills her wine
  • Your dress won’t stay up
  • The best man nicked himself shaving
  • You need to find vendor contracts
  • The maid of honor has a run in her stocking
  • The groom has dog hair on his tux
  • One of the usher’s shoes is scuffed
  • The flower girl is rambunctious, and ripped her dress
  • Your mother’s hair won’t stay up

With Mojuba, even the smallest challenge that may arise has been anticipated, so when you’re asked about your wedding day, you can say with complete confidence, “It was ‘perfect.”

The Bride and Groom Mojuba Wedding emergency kits have become wedding day essentials by helping to turn these unexpected, unplanned moments into simple moments that pass without worry or concern. We’re proud to be living our mission and helping happy couples every day.

Wedding Day Advice
1. Scuff your shoes.
“I always tell people to do this. The wedding party usually wears news shoes, and it’s so easy to slip—especially if the church or venue is carpeted or if there are stairs to walk down — so I always tell everyone to go outside and scuff the bottoms of their shoes on the pavement before the ceremony starts.”

2. Eat something.
“It sounds so obvious, but brides get caught up in getting ready and they forget to eat, or they’re nervous and don’t want to eat. But it’s so important to have even a little something … especially if you’ll be drinking champagne.”

3. Be prepared.
While James naturally endorses her own emergency kit, she suggests that every wedding party have one in some form. “Something always happens,” she says. “Someone will always lose a button, someone will always get a headache, someone will always get a stain on something. These might seem like little things now, but when your photographer is taking pictures and someone’s strap won’t stay up or the flower girl gets a grass stain, it can be stressful if you can’t fix it.”

4. Give the guys something to do.
James, who also makes an emergency kit specifically for grooms, suggests that ladies give their guys playing cards, or something else to keep them entertained while the bridal party gets ready. “It doesn’t take the guys as long, and they need something to do before the ceremony besides drink!” she jokes. “I’ve seen too many drunken groomsmen.”

5. Let go.
“Plan as much as you can and organize as much as possible, but then on that day just let it go. Things will happen, and the couples I’ve worked with who were the happiest on their wedding days were the ones who just let go and enjoyed themselves.”

Bride Mojuba is a collection of last-minute items that brides need-but didn’t know they needed-on their wedding day.

Bride Mojuba is a sophisticated, chic bag that unfolds to reveal one exquisite item after another, from essential everyday items to indulgent necessities for the bride and her bridal party.

It has a built-in mirror and is easy to throw over a shoulder or carry on the arm.

Whether bought to ease the stress of their own wedding day or given as a gift, brides across the country can breathe a sigh of relief-Mojuba Wedding will prepare them for the unexpected on their wedding day.

Jackie James, Wedding Expert and Entrepreneur

You don’t know her. But you’ll thank her.

 

Mojuba was founded in 2008 by Jackie James, an adventurous entrepreneur and event planner. Jackie worked for 20 years planning and executing sensational weddings and events, becoming a treasure for her clients. Jackie was able to design events helping to create vision for her clients, anticipate and fix problems and make sure every moment went off without a hitch. Each wedding and event brought its own inspiration, challenges, and rewards.

After those 20 wonderful but hectic years, Jackie decided it was time for a new adventure in her life. Ambitious and motivated, Jackie gathered research and ideas for years, resulting in overstuffed bins of product ideas and binders bursting with inspiration.

Jackie’s pivotal “Ok, I’m going for it!” moment came from her late brother-in-law. He inspired her to take her passion and problem-solving skills and turn them into something of her own-something that would take her vast experience and creativity to the next level.

Jackie often saw new inventions or concepts and would say, “I thought of that years ago!” Her brother-in-law would counter playfully, “But you didn’t DO it.” He was South African and as a tribute and thanks to him for his inspiration, Jackie discovered the word “Mojuba,” which in some African cultures refers to a bag of magical items that bring joy and happiness, and a prayer of praise and tribute. With this inspiration, Jackie’s business began to fully take shape.

Jackie finds new ideas and inspiration everywhere-from the people she meets, every town (and country) she visits, every magazine she picks up, every company she Googles, and every product she comes across. In developing Mojuba, she worked with major retailers and boutique manufacturers all around the world to find the best and most sophisticated products. Jackie’s bins of ideas and tattered papers have evolved into an incredible, fashionable, essential part of any wedding day.

Ultimately, Mojuba bags were created from an entire world of inspiration-a perfect fit for the charm of these bags.

Stephen Webster Firework Bangle

I do enjoy fireworks on the 4th of July and in New York City there is a pretty breathtaking display. But in the main I like my light shows to last a little longer. What I mean, of course, is I like my fireworks in jewelry. Stephen Webster, British designer extraordinaire, has combined the two concepts in one spectacular piece of jewelry. Just over 5-carats of sapphires, black and white diamonds burst across this gold bangle. It is a real sparkler.

Cartier Evasions Bracelet

In my humble opinion Cartier made some of the best jewelry on the face of the planet during the 1940s. In that era, The Duchess of Windsor sported the French firm’s snazziest styles, several of which look like this new bracelet. The alluring light and dark color combo consists of pink gold, opal and sapphires with black and white diamonds. Dare I say, the designers at Cartier have outdone themselves.

Pomellato Victoria Jet and Rose Gold Earrings

When Prince Albert died in 1861, Queen Victoria mourned her beloved in gorgeous jet jewelry. Her passion for the sable-hued material found on England’s coastline inspired women who had not even lost a loved one. Today jewelry is back in black. It provides a strong contrast to any color statement and I could build countless looks around these beautiful earrings.

Chopard Animal World Duck Ring

Donovan Hohn’s best-seller Moby-Duck is the author’s real adventure tale as he travels the world to discover the fate of rubber ducks that slipped off a container ship in 1992. The marvelous book manages to cover everything from environmental concerns to the symbolism of the sweet children’s toy. It is as epic as this Chopard rubber duck ring decorated with hundreds of stones, including 618 yellow diamonds, 66 amethysts, 132 tourmalines and 104 sapphires. In my mind, the major jewel is a fitting tribute to those mighty ducks.

Anahita Gold and Labradorite Necklace

Without a doubt, the sexiest necklace length is 20-inches—ending right around your décolletage. Ana Guity Stein’s design is exactly that measurement. A lyrical gold and moody blue Labradorite pendant adds an extra layer of sensuousness. Old world architecture, a subject near and dear to Stein, inspired the design, which is another reason why she set the sexy pendant at the end of a 20-inch chain. It sits close to your heart.

Mary Margaret Lang Vintage Charm Bracelet

I had my first major jewelry experience when I was a ten-year-old flower girl in my aunt’s wedding. For the occasion, my mother accessorized me in my little charm bracelet totally tricked out with mementos from trips across the country and talismans collected along the way. Well, my treasure rang like a little bell when I walked the aisle and at the reception everyone wanted to see my special trinket. That’s when I learned what a great conversation piece jewelry can be. With Mother’s Day on the horizon, I would love to return the favor and give my mother a loaded up charm bracelet like this one from Mary Margaret Lang’s vintage collection. It could break the ice anywhere.

Sharon Khazzam Tourmaline, Diamond and Kunzite Bee Earrings

I rotate my jewelry seasonally, the same way I do my clothes. My favorite black hematite ring has been stored away ’till fall and the major turquoise comes out of hibernation when the mercury really rises. For spring I like the pretty palette found here in Sharon Khazzam’s beautiful bee earrings—the fabulous flesh tones would go so well with this season’s wardrobe. It is as refreshing as a pink lemonade.

Wilfredo Rosado Gold Lips Ring

The old-school cameo made a major comeback for spring when Dolce & Gabbana and Bottega Veneta sent jewelry depicting women in profile down the runway. Although all the looks were absolutely lovely none were quite bold as this Wilfredo Rosado ring, a design flaunted by Rhianna at the Grammy Awards. It is the perfect combo of edge, elegance and humor. I would love to rock it myself.

Bulgari Ruby and Gold Ring

During an interview for my book Diamonds, Nicola Bulgari used an unforgettable phrase to explain the Italian firm’s playful use of rectangular gems: “We flirt with the baguette.” The romance has clearly gotten serious. Decorated with 28 tapered ruby baguettes, this bold gold ring was turned a dark, sexy night color with a PVD treatment. I know I am in love.
