Are you still on the hunt for that special Gal-entine’s Day gift or special surprise for your loved one this Valentine’s Day?  There are so many options available when shopping, but why not make a statement with what you choose to gift this year or anytime?  Today I wanted to share with you a gorgeous piece from CAROLEE – just in time for Valentine’s Day or a special gift of “just because”.  If you are anything like my husband and I, celebrating love is a daily occasion and doesn’t need a special holiday so you can elect to get some from CAROLEE anytime of the year.

While all the pieces CAROLEE offers are stunning and gorgeous, I decided on the Candy Colors Dramatic Necklace ($130.00) that comes ready for gifting in a gorgeous gift box.  This beautiful statement piece is the perfect gift for anyone who loves color and jewels.  It comes with multi-color acrylic stone in a gold-tone setting and has a lobster claw closure.  It has an 18-20 inch adjustable chain and great weight to it offering a chic and sophisticated look.

This classic design is one that will go with just about anything.  Use this necklace with a pair of jeans and a cute top or dress it up for a night on the town.  I love that it is filled with gorgeous colors that will be perfect for any occasion and you can use this as your statement piece to your entire outfit.  Since the necklace features several different colors it would be a great Spring or Summer necklace (not just for Valentine’s Day).

If you have your eyes set on this necklace, like with any other jewelry make sure to wipe the necklace down prior to storage and if at all possible store in an air tight bag to keep the dust away.  This will help to prolong your necklace so you can get lots of use out of it.  This gorgeous piece makes such a great gift for someone you love or a nice piece to add to your own collection.  I’m not only impressed with the quality of the craftsmanship but also with the overall appearance and look.  It’s beautiful and would make a fantastic gift.

In our household, Valentine’s Day is every day so it’s not a holiday or date we necessarily put a huge emphasis on each year.  To my husband and I, Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love and we embrace love and commitment each and every day.  Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy the occasional flowers, box of chocolates or jewelry but for us, Valentine’s Day is really about spending time with one another.  You see – with our busy schedules and odd shifts, parenthood and just our overall daily lives, spending time with one another is what makes for a great Valentine’s Day.

Time With The Ones You Love Is Always Well Spent

“Any time not spent on love is wasted.” – Torquato Tasso

My husband Kevin and I have been together for almost 19 years and in that time we have definitely celebrated this holiday in different ways.  Dinner by candle light, roses and floras galore and beautiful gems and jewels to stop traffic but one tradition we have definitely kept strong over the years is a new watch for one another.  Whether I’m buying a new one for him or he a new one for me, each year whether for the holidays, birthday or Valentine’s Day at least one of us gets a new watch for our collection.  Watches are so significant to each of us.  To us, a watch is more than just an accessory we wear on our wrists, it symbolizes time and our time together is so precious and important to us.

“I would rather have 30 minutes of something wonderful, than a lifetime of nothing special.” – Julia Roberts (Steel Magnolias)

This year I treated Kevin to a beautiful JORD Watch – a 94A Series in green sandalwood and maple.  This perfect wood watch makes a statement that is bold but not so much that it would make a person feel uncomfortable when wearing it.   It is the kind of watch for those who are making the most of every moment, every single minute and every day.  For a couple like us who collects watches of all kinds, this particular time piece is classic and stunning.

While each couple or person celebrates Valentine’s Day the way they choose, we opt to make sure that no matter the reason, we make sure that we spend time with one another, soaking in each and every moment and absolutely cherishing what we have.  As a couple we have learned that life’s moments can sneak up on you and in a heartbeat anything can change.  Make use of the time you have and spend it with the one(s) you love.  Make Valentine’s Day every day and make every moment you live something wonderful.

Each person celebrates love differently and whether it be to buy something special for someone you care about or to spend every waking moment with the one you love, the decision is up to you.  With busy schedules, three active boys and a life of activity – my husband and I have found that two minutes with one another is a cherished commodity and one we take advantage of as much as possible.  Time with one another is our favorite gift and the reason why we buy each other watches for presents.

I’ve said this before, but living in Hawaii really does have it’s benefits.  From the gorgeous ocean and beaches that are my back yard to the beautiful flora and fauna that surround me, Hawaii is a getaway and paradise and I’m born and raised here.  I’m pretty lucky!  Maui is also home to many creative talents and I am so glad I was able to check out one for myself.  Today I introduce you to Nagasako Designs, made on Maui.

Fashion Friday - Real Orchid Earrings by Nagasako Designs, Made on Maui http://honeygirlsworld.com

Nagasako Designs on Maui was introduced to me about a year ago and I have been swooning and crushing over her jewelry since.  You can find many real orchid earrings online and in various stores, but I am proud to say that this one is made right here on the island where I was born and from the town where I was raised.  If you are from Maui, you’ll know that the Nagasako name is one that goes back generations.  I had been a frequent customer of Nagasako store as a kid, grabbing my ICEE on hot summer days while cruising the Historic Lahaina streets, so I instantly recognized the name when I was introduced to the brand.

Martina Nagasako – a native to Lahaina, Maui preserves cherished floral memories for many and also creates one of a kind pieces that will absolutely be treasured for years to come.  Today I share with you a piece I got for Mother’s Day, the Lavender Orchid Center Earrings ($45.00).  I instantly fell in love with these because they looked so unique and of course, because Purple is my favorite color.  While these gorgeous gems offer a statement, they are still dainty and feminine which I love.  The pair dress up any outfit and fit in so well with the laid back lifestyle I live here on Maui.  These earrings are well made with center orchids that are grown, hand picked, designed and glassed in Lahaina.  I love that they are on hooks which allow the earrings to dangle freely from the ears and the lavender/grey fresh water pearl makes for a perfect accent on each earring.

Nagasako Designs offers a variety of pieces in different sizes and colors.  They are priced reasonably and make great gifts.  I stalk the company on Instagram to see new releases as they are rolled out and as I mentioned earlier, no two pieces are alike as each flower is unique.  Nagasako Designs also offers preservation of flowers from your Wedding Day or special occasion and are the only preservation floral studio in Hawaii.

While I have a plethora of earrings and pendants on my wishlist, I have my eyes on a set of plumeria and whole orchid earring sets.  It item is absolutely gorgeous and so well made that I can’t wait to pick up more.  I wanted to feature Nagasako Designs on Fashion Friday because I’m not only impressed with the product, but customer service is phenomenal, shipping is very fast and I think it is so awesome to have such a creative mind and designer right in my back yard.  But, Nagasako Designs does ship anywhere, so do not hesitate to check out what she has to offer.  Stop by Nagasakodesigns.bigcartel.com to see the pieces she offers and check out her Instagram @Nagasakodesigns to keep up with what’s new and to check out her flash sales & discounts she has often.
