'Favorite Place' Necklace

Since college graduation I've been looking for a piece of jewelry where I could incorporate some memory of Miami U.  The other day I came across this website, Sydney Buchanan, that sells fine silver jewelry. I found an adorable pendant necklace where you can add longitude/latitude coordinates on one side and whatever else you want on the other side, like a date, for $112. I'm more of a gold lover so I do have one little critique of the necklace-- I wish the chain was gold instead of silver, but that's obvi fixable. I would love to use the coordinates of my college house, Dubois Not Books, and inscribe my graduation date (5.6.12) on the other side. Now that I found the perfect necklace all I need now is a job so I can buy it!

A Birthday Celebration!

June 1st not only marks what I consider to be the start of summer (who decided on June 20th to be the "official" date? rando) but it is also one of my best friends 22nd birthday! We spent the day going to Quail Country Club for some appetizers and drinks served by our favorite waiter (holla, Sue) and had some wine at Ali's before going to Downtown Willoughby. For my birthday coming up in the middle of the month the ultimate treat for me would be to finally receive a job offer.  Fingers crossed!

Enjoying some NY Manhattan Cheesecake and pinot grigio! 

 Some gorgeous earrings Ali got me from Florence, Italy purchased from the store Fiori del Tempo! Only Ali would be giving someone else a gift on her birthday.

Drinks of choice for the pregame. Ali's favorite beer that she had in Dublin, Ireland and Chianti Colli Senesi served at one of our favorite restaurants in Florence, Italy, Golden View , on the Ponte Vecchio.

Nothing better than DOCG Chianti!

My pals. Hehe, ignore the candles. 

 One of the bars we stopped at, The Willoughtby Brewing Company, that serves their own crafted beer!
