Trouble Sleeping

What is it about these little pieces of stones that can drive a girl up the wall?? Pearls, diamonds, gold,white gold, you name it-- a girl's got to have it. So how many times have you hinted to your one and only about a dainty thing on a piece of string? Can the right kind of jewelry actually put value to a relationship? In some cultures yes, in others no. In some relationships, exchanging gifts is a point of excitement between two lovers, in others, it's a superfluous act. Either way, there's no denying the awe-inspiring effect of a little glimmer catching your eyes.

Feeling a little self-indulgent but still hoping to give back during this Valentine season? The world renown online jeweler Abazias has teamed up with DISTRIKMODE to raise funds for the Haitian earthquake victims. Their tragedy still resonates with us, as there are a lot to be done to shelter, cloth, feed and medicate the survivors. The wonderful Abazias team has kindly donated their timeless diamond cluster stud earrings in white gold, to be gifted to our highest donor. This stunning pair features 14 sparkling round-cut diamonds for a total carat weight of 1/10.

"Sometimes, treated diamonds can have the appearance of a fake diamond, when in fact they are real diamonds but have actually been enhanced" - Abazias

If any of you dear readers are interested, please leave a comment with your name and email after donating via Paypal Donate button below. All of your generous proceeds will go to the United Nation's World Food Programme via Paypal. So open up your heart and lets make a difference, even if marginal.

Note: The highest donor will be contacted through email for the gift shipping information. We will need the full recipient name, shipping address (no PO box), and phone number before the earrings are shipped out.

Art imitating life imitating art.

At the Marc Jacobs Spring Ready-to-Wear 2010 runway show, the designer was not expressing a certain decade but a present-day moment and place -- In this case, somewhere likely downtown, where a lineup of chorus girls, ballerinas, and dancers were on their way home from a hard day's work. This, it seems is fashion being witty. The cheeky collection is a literal take on fashion imitating the surroundings it inhabits.
