August Birthstone ~ Peridot

If August was a gemstone it definitely would be peridot and it just so happens that it's the birthstone! I think of August as the hottest month, the month that you start longing for fall, and the month that everything in Florida seems to be at its peak in greenness. Peridot as a gemstone embodies all those traits for me. It has a vivid lime green color that makes me think of pool floaties, cut lime wedges in cold beverages, and the lime green summer dresses that make your tan look deeper. The green color is also a wonderful transition color from summer to fall.

Nanny would make bacon, grits, and eggs to go along with these pancakes. (There is no such thing as a simple, small meal on a farm.) I would watch my Nanny scurry about the kitchen that she had...

My Summertime Jewelry Essentials

    #1 Diamond Stud Earrings I cannot preach this enough! Diamond Studs with screw backs are the perfect travel companion. You can sleep in them, wear them to the beach, they glisten beautifully at night, and their sparkle will go with every outfit. The beauty of the screw backs is that once they are on you can be care free knowing that those babies will not come off. Also, when you're on the beach with your hair blowing wildly in the breeze, diamond studs will not get tangled up like long dangle earrings.        #2 Chunky Gold Link Bracelet I think gold tone compliments a tan so perfectly. You’ll want to done some arm candy with your...
