Jeez, is it Oct already? I had a post all written up but it was wiped out so you will have to make do with this terse one until my review of the newest Maya Banks is up, which should be finished in a day or two.
One thing I will retype out since I cant post it in the corresponding thread on TWOP since its closed (those effing Nazis!) is that I heard that an acquaintance of mine is gonna join the next season of the reality series The Real Housewives of NYC – Son ja Morgan. I was much closer to her before she finally got John Morgan (descendant of JP Morgan, THE famous financier) to the altar. As you can see from the picture ———————–>
he is much older than her but I dont think of her as venal like most golddiggas. I thought she was rather sweet and, of course, she had that certain personal magnetism that drew men to her in droves. I also dont think of her as “delusional,” which seems to be the prevailing trait of most of the hags in this series (the major exception being Kandi of Atlanta). She probably signed on to promote some business venture but I cant think why since she quite loves her place in society as Mrs. John Morgan: going to balls and parties and shopping, shopping, shopping. I hope this doesnt mean that her marriage is in trouble and John is pushing her out the door but it looks like a red flag to me.
And speaking of shopping, I’ve been thinking of getting one of the necklaces from Korto of Project Runway 5 website but cant decide. My top four choices all have pros and cons. I love everything about #1 except for the fish pendant. I’m a Cancer, not a Pisces! I emailed the site about changing the pendant or doing a custom order but got no response. As for #2, I would get that in a NY minute of the coral was a coral color, instead of green. Otherwise, I love everything about it. #3 is okay and not as pricey as the others but I just wish another color was incorporated into the beading. I love #4 but wish the pendant wasnt that grey-taupe. So what should I do?
Technically, I could probably make something similar myself. I know where to get a similar pendant and I could easily get some sponge coral like in #2 but time is money and I’ll much rather pay the extra for the convenience of just getting it complete and wearing it instantly. I have also included pictures of some of the statement necklaces that I already have down below. #A is one of my signature pieces. Its a Victorian chain with an intaglio hardstone fob. For a more chunky look, I sometimes layer it with my other Victorian chain above it. #B is an Eithiopian necklace that I made myself while in college. I always get compliments whenever I wear #C but the topaz stones are quite heavy and hurts by the end of the day so I dont wear it anymore.
So, whadya think? Buy or make my own or keep looking?
