Bombay Taxi is a Best of CLE

When I started Bombay Taxi less than a year ago, I dreamed that *some day* it would be a winner of a Cleveland Magazine's Best of Cleveland award. Little did I know that dream would come true quite so soon! I am so proud to announce that Bombay Taxi is an Editor's Pick for the 2016 Best of Cleveland for Best Online Jewelry! Cue me squealing!!!

Bombay Taxi Best of CLE

When Cleveland Magazine told me I had been selected, I was expecting a small write-up with a little picture, but when the issue was released, I was very pleasantly surprised to see that it was almost a complete page!! In fact, I was so surprised that I almost missed it completely!

Best of all, Cleveland Magazine invited me to host a booth at the Best Of... Party, and you know what that means?! POP UP TIME!!! So, this Saturday, October 15th, I will be popping up at the Best of Party with a stocked booth. I'm doing something very fun and creative with my space, so I hope you will come check it out! 

Here's a little sneak peek at my booth styling and some of our brand new merchandise

I seriously cannot underscore how much this honor means to me! I'm so thankful for my amazing clients, the editors of Cleveland Magazine, incredible lady bosses like Charity Crawford, Suzanne Price, Kamron Khan, Rebecca and Karin for hosting my very first pop up, Stephanie Sheldon for stepping in when our second pop up was held hostage to the weather, and so many other incredible women who have offered support and advice! And last, but certainly not least, my darling husband Nick, who has been my rock throughout this process, and my mom, who will run off to markets in Mumbai when I need her to ship me supplies in an emergency!

Its been an incredible few weeks, and I can't wait to see what comes next! 

 

And All Good Things Come To An End

When it comes to jewelry, I have a few motto's:
Bigger is Better
More is More

That said, I can always appreciate the beauty of a delicate piece: of course there is the option to stack them, but sometimes a single piece of delicate jewelry can convey endless elegance.

P.S. Orchids don't smell like anything. I did not know that until I actually tried to sniff them.

A closer look at those Bar Bracelets. The rose gold version even has tiny diamonds in it!

And with that, as with all good things, my time with my Tiffany & Co. treasures has come to an end. 

A huge thank you to Tiffany & Co. and their PR representatives for allowing my this truly amazing opportunity. Also, a great big thank you to N and my dear friend Melissa for being my photographers. And last, but certainly not least, thank you to YOU, my readers, for joining me on this adventure. I had an absolute BLAST doing it, and I hope you enjoyed reading it!

We'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming next week!! 
XOXOXO

Disclosure: Tiffany & Co. lent me a number of pieces from their 2013 Atlas Collection and asked me to blog about how I would incorporate these pieces in my daily wardrobe. I have received no other compensation other than the ability to wear these pieces for the allocated time period. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.  


Celebrate EVERY Day with Tiffany & Co

I used to be the kind of person that used to save all my "treasures" for special occasions. Then earlier this year, I read a quote (and I wish I remembered who said it) that essentially advocated (and I'm paraphrasing here): Stop saving your beautiful things for special occasions because LIFE is a special occasion.

In the spirit of this very wise saying, here's me wearing my most FAVORITE Tiffany piece!! It is the Atlas Hinged Bangle in rose gold, and lets just say that if I owned this, I would wear it ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE!!


My dress is the Gemma wrap dress from Banana Republic, shoes from Nine West (discontinued but similar to this). And in keeping with high-lo, the chunky resin necklace is from Francesca's 


As you can see above, I stacked the Atlas bangle with a cuff bracelet from my personal collection. I'm also mixing metals with some rose, gold and silver!! 
Here's a closer look at my new obsession. Isn't she gorgeous?!

So what do you think of my new motto to Celebrate Every Day? Are you inspired to wear some of your "treasures" more frequently?
