Just a few days ago, the word snow made us all want to cringe. But, today is not too cold, the sun is out, and we spent the afternoon frolicking in Queens (Crocheron Park, to be exact) with Chicklet and her friends. After being cooped up the whole week, with nothing to do but watch TV and eat, it is nice to be able to enjoy a beautiful Sunday.
We made sure to ask how the sales of US Magazine were at Murray's candy store- he said they were selling just fine, and that made me very happy. Just check out the site, we got a great feature in US Style for our super-hot Golden Globes Collection.
After a week where everything looked like an icicle, just tell me that the Starlight Clip Earrings don't look like a winter winner! I can't believe how many orders have come in for these, and they are a great buy, with beautiful Swarovski Elements and free shipping.
Not to be outdone, the Say Yes Ring is another Golden Globe favorite, and it really looks like the 'real thing' that probably cost a couple of years pay for most of us.
Which Icicle would you pick?
Not that beautiful CZ's aren't the real thing to most of us to begin with. I was wearing Angie's Emerald Stud today, cause it could still be seen between my jacket collar and my hat (it is still wintry despite the sunshine) and got more than a few comments on the paths of the park.
The Snow Family, Bayside NY
I never travel without my camera and some robertachiarella.com cards, just in case people want to rush home and make a purchase.
Joe Chiarella and the Snowmen
It was fun to wander around the park today and watch the kids having so much fun. Can you imagine that I was sledding down these exact same hills when I was a little kid.
Of course we had sleds with sharp metal rails on them that you had to wax, these would scare the heck out of todays parents but they went fast and you didn't get cut up too bad when one ran over you!
isn't that Linda Schraufnagl over there?
Chicklet had a blast, she ran up to every kid she could, secretly hoping someone would take her down the hill with her. Take a look at my brother with the snowmen build by the children of Bayside, so cute! Thats it for now my friends. Ciao!
The Jets will play in the playoffs today, think of all those people out there in the cold! Maybe the players will be warm running around, but I am glad I am indoors on the couch with some tea than out on the streets of New York City. It's 23 degrees here, and although that's not much if you live in Alaska, we are cold!
Featured in O
I ran out early this morning to pick up a couple of extra copies of O the Oprah Magazine because I wanted some souvenirs. It's amazing people have called from all over asking how I got the jewelry in it, in the front of all things, too. I am so happy with my jewelry, the design turned out to be a hit and people, especially some stylists and editors think it's a keeper!
So, we've got lots in stock and you can see the social stretch bracelet in a copy of O or on the website. If you're just reading cause it's cold out, get a copy of Real Simple Weddings and check out the Giant Swarovski Earrings, a great buy for a crystal like this.
Our studio has shipped a lot of new stuff this week, it is a great chance to buy something new and reward yourself with something free from the sale section thanks to the Buy One Get One Free Sale that is now going on. I put some really expensive jewelry in the sale section so it's eligible for being a free item, cause we do have a lot of Golden Globes Collection jewelry arriving and the place is just so big.
I was lucky enough to have my jewelry shown on the today show, it'll make an appearance in US Magazine this week too. We had fun watching, and my jaw dropped with Angelina Jolie wearing a great green earring that we have featured in the Golden Globes Collection. If you saw the Today Show segment, you really can buy a look that cost actresses thousands at a reasonable price, using great clothes and our hot jewelry.
So, we have some great new items now on sale, and our email list will feature more great items and bargains this week. Watch for more exciting developments as we look at some more magazine features coming up. Next item on todays list is to make some nice warm dinner and stay indoors, waiting for what the weather folks say is another snowstorm coming in a day or two. Ahhh, winter weather. Ciao!
Welcome to 2011! It seems like yesterday that we were celebrating Christmas and wishing each other a Happy New Year, wait, oh, um, it was only last week, but time flies! The tree is gone, the decorations in the boxes till next year, and the pecan cookie recipe is tucked in mom's old cookbook once again. I have heard from more than a few customers about their holiday festivities, and it looks like we all had a good time.
I have to thank my team, we gave our all to make sure customers got their jewelry and they loved what they got. Many folks were thrilled with our 'secret santa' gifts we put in some orders, it's actually a tradition that I treat some facebook friends, some blog followers and some long-time customers with a nice 'extra' piece of jewelry once in a while. Like the 'birthday club', robertachiarella.com gives you goodies just for fun. One day I'll post some emails from people who were pleasantly surprised. Hint- if you aren't a facebook friend and we don't have your birthday (when you sign up for the email list we ask for the month and day) then you'll never know what others are getting...
Now, on to fashion! Our newest items are trickling in from the factory, we've launched a great swarovski piece, the moonstone bracelet, that has vintage stones from the '50's to make the most beautiful bracelet ever! I had the opportunity to score these amazing stones, they're literally one-of-a-kind. The colors are unique, they literally glow as the techniques to make them were different 60 years ago, so you will be amazed when you are wearing this bracelet.
Hoops are still selling like crazy, you can't go a day without seeing them on TV or on a fashion model, so we've got a few choices. So many people bought the Hippie Hoops and some people shied away because they were too big for them, so we now have the perfect hoop earrings for you. Take one look at the Perfect Hoops and you'll see for yourself. You can't do better for the amazing price of $38, why not get two? We've also got theUnbelievable Earrings on sale cause it's featured in this months Inside Weddings, so take a look at that beautiful magazine piece to see the key look.
We're gearing up for the awards season, it'll be another thrilling year for us as I've been asked to work on the post-Golden Globes shows, to recreate (affordably!) the dazzling looks you'll see on the red carpet. The show is the 68th Annual event, it'll air LIVE on Sunday, January 16, 2011 on NBC from 5:00-8:00 p.m. (PST) /8:00-11:00 p.m. (EST). It comes from Hollywood, of course, from the Beverly Hilton Hotel and the host is Ricky Gervais. After it's aired, we'll be presenting our jewelry to the stylists and hosts who help you re-create the stars looks at a down-to-earth price. I get to watch the show, select beautiful jewelry and offer it to TV shows, stylists and magazine editors everywhere. Wow! I love my job! Ciao.
