You Will Reach Your Destination In 500 Feet

Last Reply by icezeus 1411695657.197 | Started by Leah Williams in Fashion Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

This is a story about about technology, the kindness of strangers, and great customer service. I was going to New York for a birthday party. New York is about two hours from Philadelphia so I figured it was easiest to drive. I drive to New York City often enough -- no problem. But what was different about this trip was that I was going to a location I hadn’t driven to before. I was going to be staying over in a nice hotel downtown. So I plugged the address into the GPS system in my car. Now usually, if I’m traveling someplace unfamiliar, I print a hard copy of directions just in c... Continue Reading

Chicken and Dumplings

Last Reply by Fancy1 1410622960.67 | Started by Leah Williams in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities

When I was twelve my Grandma Williams gave me a complete cooking set-up for Christmas. She filled a huge box with all sorts of things a budding cook would need -- bowls and spoons, measuring cups and basting brushes. She included rolling pins and cookie cutters. I think my box even had an apron -- it was the 70’s after all, and my grandmother always wore an apron when she cooked. But the crowning glory of the box was “The Complete Family Cookbook”. It was one of those, “build-a-book” deals where you received a new section until the entire cookbook was complete. M... Continue Reading

Summer vacation for Leah Williams

Last Reply by lindah1 1410649378.89 | Started by Leah Williams in Fashion Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

Now that September is here, summer vacation seems like a distant memory. But I promised to share a few photos from my family’s vacation in Mexico, so I thought now was as good a time as any. Just one thing, revisiting these pictures is making me think a fall vacation doesn’t sound half bad. Enjoy! Family Photo at sunset The beautiful grounds of our resort   Authentic Mexican meal prepared for us   Risking my life on the zip line Family bonfire complete with s’mores and a piñata   Sailing on the Espiritu Santi Sailboat ...

The Story Behind "My Right-Hand Ring"

Last Reply by FrancesL 1410346205.393 | Started by Leah Williams in Fashion Talk, Jewelry Talk, Hosts & Personalities

I knew I wanted a right-hand ring, but I couldn’t seem to find the perfect one. I looked at a lot of styles, and many of them had details that I liked. But no single ring had exactly what I wanted. So, I decided to have a custom ring made. When the jeweler was working on my ring, I thought about some of the others that inspired it. Those rings had names like “celebration”, “commemoration” and “jubilation”. The idea was that the right-hand ring could represent many enjoyable things. I decided I would call mine my “happiness” ring. It&rsquo... Continue Reading

A Fall Favorite -- Pumpkin Soup and Grilled Cheese

Last Reply by qpinion 1407546964.913 | Started by Leah Williams in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities

I’m not one to rush the changing of the seasons, but now that August is here, it won’t be long until the leaves start to turn, the air starts to chill, and the days grow shorter. I love fall colors -- orange, and yellow and green. Yellow mums are my favorite, and the autumnal shades found in an assortment of gourds is the perfect decoration in a bowl on my kitchen island. And another of my favorite things in fall is a delicious bowl of pumpkin soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. Ahhhh, here comes Fall! Here’s a recipe for an easy pumpkin soup. I hope you like it as muc... Continue Reading

Live Studio Audience featuring Alberti, Vera and Me!

Last Reply by Dana O 1406679610.787 | Started by Leah Williams in Hosts & Personalities, Vera Bradley, All About Handbags

Last week Alberti and I had the pleasure of hosting a live studio audience show featuring products from our Vera Bradley line. I was on set and Alberti worked the audience as the Social Host. We had a lot of laughs, met some incredibly nice people and sampled gorgeous designs. We asked the audience members how many Vera bags they owned and here is our winner coming in at over 120! WOW!! She must have one heck of a closet .... or closets!!! I love the raw joy seen on Alberti's face! This lovely audience member said she loves Vera's bags, because she can "stuff them to the gills...

Which is the real deal?

Last Reply by brandi22 1408469644.277 | Started by Leah Williams in Jewelry Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

Hi friends, The ring on the left was custom made for me and the ring on the right is Epiphany Diamonique. I was so pleased with how well our Diamonique team did in recreating the ring I love so much. They nailed it! Look for this Diamonique replica in August. It will be under $100 and I am trying my best to get easy pay for you. Have a great day! Did you guess correctly?   Continue Reading
