entertain me -- summertime barbeques.

Gorjana Friendship Wing Necklaces; $98
We all have friends that we've known practically forever -- and who doesn't have a half-heart necklace hiding somewhere in the depths of an ancient jewelry box, tangled with other elementary-school favorites?  Welcome to the grown-up version of the Best Friends necklaces that we all know and love.  These gorgeous gold feather pieces would make the perfect addition to any look, regardless of the wearer's style -- making them the perfect versatile pieces for the best friends who embody the idea of opposites attracting.

Anyone who knows me can tell you that there's little I love more than a great burger.  That makes summer prime time for me thanks to the plethora of barbeques that arise for every occasion -- they're the go-to party as soon as the warm weather hits.  From housewarmings to Fourth of July bashes, every event is an excuse to throw a fabulous party.  My preference?  A well-decorated outdoor barbeque filled with fantastic company and delicious food in the early summer evening as the last rays of sunshine burn off.  True perfection.
