Age: 31

Gender: Female

Resides: NoVA

Occupation/ Industry: Government and Figure Skating/Ice Dance Coach

Favorite brand:
- Lands End b/c of their petite selection & Lululemon

- Bags: Louis Vuitton but Longchamps now for everyday - I have a baby so anything I can machine wash! I figure a baby won't ruin my diamonds by spitting up on them, so the nice bags are in storage for now.

- Jewelry: David Yurman, Tiffanys, and vintage pieces. My big investment piece (not counting my e-ring) are my diamond studs, which are due for an upgrade next year. with my level of activity between working out and partnering ice dance, I don't wear my ring to the rink because I get stabbed with it when ice dancing because of the change in positions/holds, even though I wear gloves. Your face is the first thing people see so I am never without my studs.

Last purchases: Tiffany & Co 18k gold somerset knot earrings and a Yurman cerise pink tourmaline ring (my birthstone). Great authentic ebay finds. When my daughter was born last year I got a Tiffanys color by the yards bracelet from the store in her birthstone.

Hobbies: Figure skating, yoga, barre

Best/worst jewelry story: Mine is the same story...I had a botched custom diamond wedding band. I had diamond's from another ring put in a band and when the ring didn't fit or look right, I said I wanted the stones out. I didn't realize they would ruin the ring during this process. So now I have worthless scrap platinum that cost a pretty penny. Anyway, I bought a platinum Tiffany's band from ebay to use for the wedding, at almost less than half off retail. It was like new w/receipt (100% authentic). I took it to my T&Co to get sized, and not only did they give me a NEW ring instead, they also gave me the $35 difference in sales tax.

Too Cool. That is how I originally found Purse Forum. I was browsing for swatches. Hehe! My favorite brands are Essie, Chanel, Rescue Beauty, and Deborah Lippmann. Yea, I am usually not impressed with the stock at nail salons. I am like: my stash is way better. Hehe! So nice to see someone shares my obsession. A nice polished nail is just beautiful.
