It’s October, which means Fall is here! But it also means that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
I’m a breast cancer survivor (5 years cancer-free this month). When my friend & jewelry designer, Carolyn Pollack, found out I had battled breast cancer, she asked me to do the Susan G. Komen 3-day walk with her. She had already walked 420 miles (that’s 7 walks) for folks like me. I promised would, one day (that was 3 years ago). I was working at the kitchen table in early February, listening to 92.5 WXTU (my fav country station), when I ... Continue Reading

The FFANY Gala was a dream! By far the best moment for me was during dinner when it was announced that both the Gala & Shoe Salon broke fundraising records!

Many of you know Carolyn Pollack and I are walking the Susan G. Komen 3-day, 60 mile walk, for breast cancer on Sept 12th. We couldn't come up with a good team name around our love for gems & asked for your help! You responded with amazing ideas! Thank you so much!! I have to say it was tough to narrow it down to just 3 choices - let alone make a final decision. So, we're asking for your help, again! Please vote on your favorite team name. Voting will be open until Noon on Saturday August 30th, 2014. Here are the choices:

In March, my husband headed to Newport, RI to build & open our own pretzel shop.
Jim designed it, created the recipes and, literally, built the store’s interior with the help of friends and family (who happen to be contractors). It was, & is, a labor of love. (If my husband allows me, one day I will share the story behind the business and why I call it a “labor of love”!) We have no idea if it’s going to sink, tread water or swim. Regardless, I couldn’t be prouder of Jim!
Man, oh, man have we missed him! Skype ... Continue Reading

My daughter had never met her Uncle David, Aunt Kasi and their two youngest children, David & Tommy. In fact, I hadn’t seen my brother’s family in over 7 years! NOT good! So, my brother, thankfully, pushed for the first ever Hornback Family Reunion this summer. And it was a blast!
We descended upon my parents place in Indy on Saturday for breakfast and ended the gathering on Sunday after breakfast. What ensued in between was one for the memory books! My sister-in-law, Kasi, put together a whole day of competition and prizes for the win... Continue Reading

Do you believe in the theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away? This theory is referred to as six degrees of separation. It’s a chain of friend of a friend and that a connection can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps…
Here is my 6 Degrees of separation..
My sister Cindy's hair stylist, another Cindy, met Molly (a former Clarisonic guest) in the Chicago airport. They began talking & the conversation led to what they do. Molly told her she worked for Clarisonic & that she was an on-air guest for QVC. ... Continue Reading

Here is info for the other goodies on my tray;
Here's my latest edition of Jewelry On Q Street and I get to chat with the lovely Victoria. She went straight for the bling of this gorgeous Diamonique necklace that will be available soon. The great thing with Diamonique is, you can dress it up or dress it down as Victoria shares she thought it, "classed up" the t-shirt she wore to work that day. Enjoy!

I am a Graduate Gemologist (G.G.)!!!! Woo, Hoo!
I found out last week (while on vacation) that I had passed my 20-stone exam with the required 100% accuracy. I laughed. I cried. And then laughed and cried again! What a journey…20 months, 100’s of hours of study, 3 trips to NYC & over 500 gems identified.
I have always loved gemstones, but didn’t know anything about them. In 2008 I was hired as a host for Gem’s TV. My training for the position was less than 3 days & did not include training on gemstones. My fir... Continue Reading
