LIGHTBOX!

man, it’s been so long since i’ve done a proper style post! i used to create these almost weekly but it has been a minute so i’m excited to be sharing this one today. this year has been one for the books with really cool partnerships and today i’m excited to announce another art direction project i will be working on. this is my first of three posts with a brand new company called . you might have seen in my stories last week where i showed some of their pieces. they are lab-grown diamonds. which means that they share the same physical, optical and chemical properties as natural diamonds but because they are made in a lab, they are a fraction of the price.

diamonds have always, for the most part, been seen as a romantic gift, on an anniversary, engagement or some other very significant milestone. is changing the game by working to create a fun and playful line of lab-grown diamonds that could be gifts for your best friend’s wedding, your sister’s 30th birthday or just because. they are still a substantial purchase, $800 per carat but much more approachable and affordable than natural diamonds. and they come in fun colors, like the pink one i’m wearing above. you can buy the studs as singles, which i love, so you can mix and match your own pieces. i’m into taking something higher-end, like their rose gold lab-grown diamond pendant and pairing it with fun, everyday pieces, things that have a bit of color and texture to them.

and the rose gold chain inspired pick with is 100% a new favorite. it was a splurge but i’m working on building a small wardrobe of pieces that i absolutely love and can wear over and over again. it’s super comfortable and flattering because of the wrap style (for reference, i’m wearing size small), highly recommend! and my shoes are .

CHILLED COCONUT CORN SOUP!

i’m always slightly skeptical of chilled soups. there’s just something that doesn’t usually sit right with me about them. i like a smoothie bowl but i’m not such a fan of savory things in a bowl. but, with the unrelenting heat in los angeles lately, i was willing to give it a go. my aunt texted me and said she was making it so i thought i’d try it too. i’m all about any recipe that lets be soak up the summer corn season. the base is really easy to make and you need the corn kernels for the soup anyway, so i wouldn’t skip that step. – joanie
