Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: Stunning at Transformers 3 Premiere - Custom Made JewelMint Bow Choker Necklace!

Photos: Getty Images & Celebuzz

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley absolutely killed it on the red carpet for the 'Transformers 3: Dark Side Of The Moon' premiere yesterday in New York City. Rosie wore a stunning red dress and a custom made necklace from JewelMint called the Rosie Bow Choker as featured on Cher Coulter and JewelMint's facebook pages.

I think this necklace would look amazing layered on top of the Serpentine Necklace or even the Casati Necklace!

I'm assuming this piece will be produced in an upcoming collection (July?) and that Rosie will be JewelMint's next Celebrity Guest Curator joining Sienna Miller, Rachel Bilson, and Jared Eng!! Guess we'll have to stay tuned to find out!

JewelMint's Latest Celebrity Guest Curator: Sienna Miller - The "Almost Sold Out" Sienna Bracelet & International Medical Corps

 Photos: JewelMint
The always fashionable, Sienna Miller has now joined past activists Rachel Bilson (Rachel Earrings for Invisible Children) and Jared Eng (Brixton Earrings for DoSomething.org) as JewelMint's latest celebrity guest curator in their "Giving Back" series with the Sienna Bracelet!

50% of all Sienna Bracelet proceeds are donated to International Medical Corps. Here's more about the cause:


The Sienna Bracelet is currently "Almost Sold Out" and will probably be gone soon! It really is a great bracelet. I love wearing it with my Mumbai Bracelet (as seen here), and you can't go wrong with a portion of the proceeds going to an amazing cause!

Watch: Cher Coulter on JewelMint's collaboration with Sienna Miller to support  International Medical Corps:

Rio Bravo Earrings, Bossa Nova Earrings, and Versailles Earrings are back in stock as of early this morning. The Bossa Nova Earrings and Versailles Earrings are currently listed as "Almost Sold Out", and will probably quickly sell out. Click here to see up-close photos of my Versailles Earrings!

I'm curious to see it JewelMint will be releasing any more restocks before the 1st? It should be interesting to see if this happens as last month a bunch of new items were released just days before the June 1st collection arrived!! Fingers crossed. :D

JewelMint's Poseidon Disc Necklace - Photos

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


Wow, I don't think I've ever added so many photos for one piece before!! You see, I started taking some photos of my Poseidon Disc Necklace earlier today, and I seriously couldn't stop snapping photographs of it. It's one of my new favorite re-releases as of recently as if you couldn't tell!

At first, I was a little skeptical of this piece looking too "futuristic" if you will, but that's totally not the case at all. This looks fabulous with anything from black to floral prints (especially)!


I love how you can wear it long as it's intended, but how easy it is to shorten it to any length you desire or for what works with whatever outfit you want to wear this with. You can see in some of the photos above how I've used the hook to my advantage to achieve different lengths. I also think this necklace is going to transition well into fall and winter with something as simple as a turtleneck.

JewelMint just re-released this necklace on Tuesday, June 14th and it's still currently available (for now at least)! :)

A Little Mint-Spiration: Decortive Room Inspiration and a "JewelMint" Office!


Who would have thought a fabulous jewelry line and a little blog like this would ever have an entire room dedicated and decorated in their honor??? Well, one person surely didn't see it coming, and that would be...my husband! lol

Here's the thing. I love this blog. I love the excitement of it, I love the hype, I especially love the community (you guys!). It makes me happy! I'm the type of person who loves positivity, looking on the brighter side of things while always keeping in mind that life is short. You have to keep the the things you love within arms reach, and keep the people you love close to your heart. (hmm...maybe I should have pursued Hallmark card writing?) jk :)

You see, a week or two ago I woke up with another one of my crazy ideas...I wanted one of the rooms in our home to be a "JewelMint" inspired office. I mean, who does this???

Well, my husband knows just how much time and dedication goes into Jewels&Mints (and now Style&Mints), it's something I love doing besides spending time with my family, working out, and playing guitar and piano. So it only seems appropriate to have a room dedicated exclusively to my blogging efforts.

The same day, I grabbed a minty JewelMint box out of my collection and was well on my way to mint bliss!

As I walked into my local paint store, I realized picking out the "perfect" shade wasn't going to be as easy as I had initially thought. I mean, I do oil paint from time to time, but I'm used to having basic colors to mix and match myself...instead, we were talking hundreds upon hundreds of different shades of light green and blue hues!

I took a handful of swatches and made my way back home determined to find "the one". Looking through the swatches I found two of the cutest, most appropriately named shades ever!


I absolutely adore the names of these swatches..."Mint-o-licious" and "Creamy Mint"?! Seriously, I almost tried eating the swatch before I remembered it was paper! In reality though, I ultimately decided that they may have been too green for my taste. I sifted through a few more options, and I actually ended up with an unexpected shade of mint with some blue undertones. The swatch I've chosen is the one on the right (below).


You can see how it compares to the other swatch on the left with more of yellow base, and I almost feel as if I'm cheating on my original "mint-spiration", but I think the room will look beautiful with this minty-blue based color.

I plan on painting the room here soon, and I've been picking up a few things along the way to complete my "JewelMint" office vision! Other things I will be adding to the room include the obvious desk, a supersoft light-colored shag rug, two paintings of what look like tiny mint leaves, and a bookshelf to organize my JewelMint boxes as if they were actually little books sitting in a shelf!

I may even include a photo of the room after its complete transformation in the months to come! So please stay tuned! :) If any have any cute ideas, please feel free to send them my way!!! I love talking about this stuff!

xoxo, Lily

Ask Lily: Styling Advice & JewelMint Questions! The Tribal Inspired Print Trend - Where To Find

I love styling clothes, I love dressing up, and I love playing with my jewelry and accessories collection to see what I can come up with next! I mean, what girl doesn't right? :) Yet sometimes the inevitable happens, and we get stuck in a fashion rut. Nothing is working out, and sometimes a we draw a blank. It happens to the best of us!

Send me an email at jewelsandmints@gmail.com and I'll do what I can to help! Feel free to send me questions about current trends, where to find things, how to style them, questions about JewelMint (pretty much anything and everything you need help with)!

I received the following request from Kavita earlier this week:


Kavita asks: Hi Lily, I read your blog quite regularly and noticed that you had offered to help with any styling questions, etc. I'm not sure if you received Jewelmint's weekly Style/Trend email, but I'm in LOVE with the tribal print dresses they mentioned.  Any idea where I can get these, or something similar?

Answer: I love this question! The best thing about the multi-colored tribal inspired print trend is that you can really get creative with it, especially with the huge array of prints that can be found right now. Try making a bolder statement with polar opposites such as softer prints and bolder jewelry or completely mimic the symmetry or even the asymmetry of the prints with the jewelry you choose. I've chosen a few dresses and individual articles with abstract prints and even the ikat trend that I'm really loving right now. I've paired them with some JewelMint pieces that I think will look perfect for summer!

Here are a few sets I've created for the items I found for you:

JewelMint & Prints - Marrakesh Earrings and Zoe Bangle

In this set:
Jack and Ginger Abstract Print Silk Dress, $148 from Norstrom (click here); JewelMint Marrakesh Earrings (click here); JewelMint Zoe Bangle (click here); Mimi Chica Racerback Tank Dress, $44 from Nordstrom (click here)

In this set:
Donna Morgan Strapless Jersey Maxi Dress, $138 from Nordstrom (click here); JewelMint Eros Earrings (click here); JewelMint Metal Mosaic Ring (click here); Mimi Chica Asymmetrical Hem Dress, $46 from Nordstrom (click here)

JewelMint & Prints - Poseidon Disc Necklace & Urban Warrior Ring

In this set: Brilliant Chaos Shift Dress, $198 from Anthropologie (click here); JewelMint Poseidon Disc Necklace (click here); JewelMint Urban Warrior Ring (click here), Silk Ikat Twist-Strap Dress, $99 from Banana Republic (click here)

JewelMint & Prints - Odyssey Necklace & Saber Pendant Necklace

xoxo, Lily
