The Studio’s “Watchdog”

In light of this Friday’s fun holiday, “Take Your Dog To Work Day”, we are spotlighting everyone’s favorite staff member- Nissa’s shetland sheepdog, Tavvy:) He joins us everyday in the studio and unfailingly, keeps us in the loop regarding all of the office’s internal and external happenings. Whether it’s the beep of the UPS man in the alley or a knock on the loft’s door, Tavvy lets it be known (in case it wasn’t obvious, haha) that moves need to be made with his bold bark. 

It’s safe to say that we are no longer phased by the startling sensation of him licking our toes or the funny feeling of his fur brushing our legs as he prances around the studio- taking his adopted “alpha-male” responsibilities extremely seriously. While he takes full advantage of being the token male of the office- he has one trait that is stereotypically seen in women- always having to have the last word;) It will forever entertain us to observe the interactions between Nissa and Tavvy when she tells him to hush. Without fail, no matter if he’s barking about a loud noise or simply enjoying the sound of his own voice, he has to have the final “bark”. His signature “conclusive woof” as he proudly prances to his dog bed in order to continue surveying the studio is one of the things we love most about him:)

So heres to you Tavvy- we can’t imagine “a day at the office” without you!

Contest One: Calling All Pinterest Addicts

We’ve got a fresh new idea that we think will add a little extra fun to your Fridays:) Starting today, we will be launching contests bi-weekly that will allot you, our loyal customers, the opportunity to win some free Nissa Jewelry trinkets while dabbling in some of the most popular social media outlets! 

Contest One is shining the light on one of our guiltiest pleasures- Pinterest! The idea is quite simple: choose from the three featured customer favorites above and create an inspiration board that you feel accurately depicts the personality of the piece: who would wear it? what would they wear it with? where would they wear it? The possibilities for your pins are endless and we want you to run with whatever the Nissa gem inspires inside of you!

We will be choosing the board that stands out to us the most and the savvy ‘styler’ will be sent the Nissa Jewelry piece that they created their board around! So take a break from the monotony that is the workweek, pick your favorite bauble, and get pinning! We can’t wait to see what you all create:)

Ready for the Rules?

  1. We know, it’s hard to pick a favorite but it has to be done:)
    *Please pick only ONE of the three items to create a board for- if we see that you have compiled boards for more than one of the items, you will unfortunately be disqualified! 
     
  2. We can’t count yours unless its accounted for.
    * The piece you choose MUST be re-pinned from our "Contest One" board on Pinterest or we will not be able to count (let alone find) the creation you spent so long making! Please do not erase or add anything to the caption of the Pin. 
     
  3. The ‘skinny’ on the board breadth- please, substance over size. 
    *Your board must contain at least 10 pins and no more than 50.
     
  4. Let’s have the Nissa Jewelry item be the ‘star’ of the show.
    *The trinket you select must be the 'cover photo' of the board.
     
  5. Obey the time limit.
    Please have your board up by next Thursday, June 14th, by 5pm so that we can start admiring your masterpieces in a timely manner:)

  6. All is FAIR in love and handmade jewelry:)
    Again, just to reinforce our most important rule- please pick only your favorite piece to create a board around. If we see that you have created a board for more than one of this week’s items we will regrettably have to disqualify you and we really don’t want to have to do that! 

We will be announcing the winner of the best board (and free bauble) on Facebook so please make sure you have 'liked' our page! If we can’t tag you in the “winner” post, we will move onto the next best.

Time to head to our contest board! Good luck and Happy Pinning!

A Wicked Date Night

Alas, it is Rebecca Black’s favorite day of the week, Friday, which inevitably means the business blazers are coming off and the stilettos slipped on! Saturday stands for one thing in our book- sleeping in- and therefore, the possibilities for tonight’s endeavors are endless.

Living in a city can overwhelm you with options of where to spend your time (and money) but we have encountered very few who can deny the appeal of cozying up next to some of your favorite friends, splitting an enormous tub of popcorn (that if you’re like us, you got suckered into getting because it was “only a dollar more”), and enjoying the current box-office hit. What’s on our radar this week you ask? ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’-the revamped version of the classic fairytale features some of our most adored actresses like Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron and the hollywood heartthrob Chris Hemsworth playing the Huntsman himself.

The PG-13 flick makes no mention of everyone’s seven favorite Disney dwarfs and instead compliments the refreshed and far more grim plot-line with the addition of a new important character in Snow White’s story- an evil queen that wants her dead. In a turn of events, the Huntsman that is dispatched to track down the enchanting beauty begins to train her in the art of war rather than end her life prematurely. We’ll stop there- before we divulge too much and you begin to resent us for no longer giving you a reason to indulge in super-sized sodas and perfectly buttered popcorn- a treat whose simple scent can make us smile with anticipation:) 

We know that we’ll be skipping our way from the studio to the cinema tonight and we can only hope that we see you there:) Check out our “twisted fairytale” themed Polyvore collage below to see what we’ll be wearing and if you’re intrigued by the look, head on over to Pinterest and delve into our darkness-inspired board!
