Long time no blog! Well, I’m hoping to be posting a little more regularly on here since we are all pretty much having to “shelter in place” to do our part to stop help prevent the spread of COVID-19. For me, that means “working from home,” not doing my regularly scheduled live weekday lifestyle show, but I figured I can still do lifestyle-ish videos and content. So expect more to come.
In the meantime, I recorded a Women’s Month (March) Product Roundup with some of my Aubrey Approved favorites!
The theme behind these products is that they were either made by women and/or designed exclusively for women! Below is the rundown of the items if you want a closer look!
In my line of work, appearance plays a big part. If I’m going to be on TV, or make an appearance, heck, for many of us media-types we always feels the need to be “ready to go” and be “on” at a moment’s notice. That being said, one thing I’ve never been is a great accessorizer. I tend to stick with simple and safe, hoop earring, simple bracelet in gold or silver and my same staple, go-to rings. However, I do admire great jewelry and would love to sport them with style.
Enter Rocksbox. Rocksbox is a great subscription service that provides you with a stylist who will select and send you fantastic jewelry to accessorize with, based on your choices in a simple survey. You can also select items into your wish list. Then once you receive your set, you can start to feel a bit more put together with their great selection of jewelry. There is no time limit on how long you can use the items. Just use and return when you’re ready for your next set..and you also have the option to purchase the piece you would like to keep.
So, let me share with you my first Rocksbox!!! My 2-year old toddler couldn’t resist helping me open it…that’s probably the best part, getting a package in the mail and not knowing exactly what’s inside is too fun. I guess that’s why the kids love those surprise egg videos so much. At any rate, I caught the moment on my iPhone if you want to see the big reveal.
Inside I had a brillant blue pair of stud earrings, a sexy statement necklace and a delicate, trendy tube bracelet.
First up I wore the Loren Hope Sophia studs in seafoam. These were just so pretty on my ears. I wore them with a few different looks, but they worked nice to jazz up a daytime outfit, or compliment a more dressy style. The color definitely popped!
I paired the Perry Street Addision necklace with a business suit look to add some “bling.” It worked beautifully and added that touch of style to a suited up look.
Finally, I wore the Gorjana Bali Tubed Curve bracelet. I wouldn’t have selected this for myself, but since I had it, why not rock it?!?! It was a simple, subtle accessory to add to my outfit that day, a delicate and feminine statement on my wrist.

I ordered these super cute, customized necklaces for my Mom and sisters as post-Christmas gifts and they finally arrived!! I discovered them while flipping through a Lucky magazine and decided to order these unique designs from Moon and Lola. You know sometimes when gift giving can be hit or miss and you think, well they can always return it if they don’t like it!?! Well, obviously when it (literally) has your name on it, not so easy! haha BUT — I knew these personalized chains would be a good fit since who doesn’t want something one of a kind, made especially for them!!! 🙂
Personally, I’ve always had a ‘thing’ about stuff with my name on it, because growing up, it was pretty much a NEVER that I could find key chains, mugs, stickers, etc… with my name printed on it. And — all of us gals, my Mom, me and younger sisters have all had gold chains with our names, except my neck kinda outgrew mine now!! LOL I haven’t seen them in person yet..shipped ’em straight to them, but my Mom is really happy with hers (Rose) and the photos look nice. YAY!!
Since I’m such a “jet-setter,” it was only appropriate for me to do a segment on travel. I love luggage with 360 wheels, and I never buy bags in black, so I can easily spot my stuff. SHUBI was brought to my attention by a friend in NYC, and are super cute…you can find them at http://shubilove.com. If you want to shop, shubi’s are 15% off (til the end of January 2009) with promo code: DECODRIVE …and shout out to “Michael Antonio Footwear” for providing the fashionable kicks for the Shubi spot! The travel jewels are from Susan Hanover Designs…I actually found them, reading the SPIRIT Magazine on a Southwest flight! She also makes special bracelets as part of JOIN RED, to help fight AIDS in Africa!
