So in just 9 days, I will be celebrating a milestone birthday. And while a lady never tells her age, I'll let you in on a little secret -- it's the big 3-0. That's right, I'm entering my Dirty Thirties! Or as Jennifer Garner says in 13 Going on 30, I'll be "flirty, thirty and thriving."

At any rate, I've decided I need to give myself a little gift, a little pick-me-up, a little extra love as I enter this new chapter of my life. And after much deliberation -- should it be a Rebecca Minkoff bag? A pair of Jimmy Choos? Or just a relaxing spa day? -- I've landed on the Helen Ficalora Alphabet Charm Necklace. I've actually been obsessing over this simple, elegant pendant for quite some time -- my gal Jessie bought one about a year ago, and although I'd been wanting one since before she started sporting hers, it definitely sparked my interest even further.

The charms and chains come in yellow, white or pink gold. I'm actually loving the yellow gold most of all, which means the "J" charm will run me $115 and the 16" fine chain an extra $70. I think that's a perfectly reasonable price to pay for my 30th birthday present to myself, don't you?

So here's to living up what's left of my 20s -- I've vowed not to sit home any night until they're over -- and to welcoming the next stage of life with open arms!


  1. Happy Birthday! What a great treat! What day is yours? Mine is on the 30th! I am debating what exactly I am going to treat myself to but I have a few years on you. ;-)
    Best Wishes!
