Re: Honora Pearl Harvest

In Honora 1397068350.71

I was a bit shocked to see that J157642 sets 4 pairs of stud earrings are "not available at this time"! I remember Joel saying for the past few months that pearl prices are coming in much higher this year, so I am afraid that their price points may really jump, compared to what we grew used to during the last several years. Much of what I've seen new on Q for Honora is well over a hundred dollars and this will definitely affect my purchasing ability. I am hopeful that Joel and Ralph will continue to make "affordable" a priority for us. I will watch regardless, because I enjoy hearing abou... Continue Reading

 

Re: What's good for spots on the hands??

In Beauty Banter 1391563140.74

FYI, Joan Rivers used to sell a hand cream treatment that she said she uses daily to prevent age spots on her hands, and her hands looked porcelain flawless. Don't know if the Q still sells it, but I believe the product got good reviews... try Joan Rivers hand cream in the search window. I have a few age spots on my hands too, or "freckles" as my mom prefers to call them! Good luck! Continue Reading

 

Re: Mary Beth's Menu - What Is Your Favorite Winter Memory As A Child?

In Kitchen & Food Talk, Cookie Exchange, Hosts & Personalities 1386962283.73

Hi Mary Beth! Though your post here was nearly a month ago, I hope you get to read this! That memorable snow storm you are referring to instantly made me remember what I think may be the SAME snow storm in 1967 -- I was about 7 years old (and I'm same age as you)! I live in suburban Chicago, but I'm betting this storm you had reached us within a day or two -- we got about 29 inches of snow and my dad helped my sister and I build an igloo in our front yard too -- I have a photo of us perched on top of it! It was indeed a kid magnet for the entire neighborhood of our friends, who all came ov... Continue Reading

 

Re: Senior Mom Blog - Homecoming

In Hosts & Personalities, Among Friends, Mom to Mom Blogs 1384287979.05

Hi Pat! I'm going through my youngest son's senior year too. Everything that happens is the "last time" we will experience high school events with our children, so it's all very bitterweet. Tim had his last Golf season this fall, last Homecoming Dance, and now college visits & applications. Letting go has been a gradual process and one that leaves me wondering how I will fill up my life with 3 grown kids away at school. All these years I've worked part-time from home and raised my kids as a full-time mom. My degree is 30+ years old, and I will have to re-invent myself and anticipate... Continue Reading

 

Re: J157642 Honora new colors

In Honora 1382471561.9

Thanks Jetts mom, I was wondering about the modern colors myself. I previously bought the other two sets for my daughter and a Classics set for me. They are perfect size pearl and backings. I will have to consider Wait List for this new color set! Hope they become available by Honora's next show on Nov. 22! I was sad to hear Honora NYC store is closing. I would have loved to travel there just once to see all those pearls in one place! Maybe when the store closes, Joel and Ralph could send all of the store's inventory for a special Honora Event on QVC -- kind of a last hurrah with speci... Continue Reading

 

Re: Teenage girls accepting themselves, self esteem and body image

In Mom to Mom Forum 1378330008.38

I am only 5'2" -- same as I was as a teenager, and always wished I were taller. My 2 best friends were 5'10" and 6'0" in 8th grade! My daughter, now 24, is about 5'6" (her 2 brothers are about 6'). Throughout her childhood, I never emphasized weight or height, only being fit and healthy. Now, as a 6-year thyroid cancer survivor myself, I truly know that's all that really matters. What others comment (or question) should be viewed as unimportant, compared to the love and support of your daughter's family and her true friends. She will no doubt have a very healthy and successful life, des... Continue Reading

 

Re: HONORA SEPT TSV

In Honora 1378075738.237

I agree, longer lengths like 36" are great and versatility is important to me. I love the MERLOT color and would like to see it paired with plum, charcoal and mauve -- maybe a wine theme with Champagnes, Burgundy, Cabernet. Although Honora has done Cherry, they haven't fully explored the deep plums and deep reds IMO. I love the jewel tones, which would coordinate with gemstone accents in colors like amy, london blue, garnet, etc. I am newly crazy over tuxedo and shades of gray. The brightness and luster of Honora pearls really amazes me for the price point. When I see what else is out th... Continue Reading

Re: Mom To Mom

Hi Mary Beth, I totally agree with your advice and thoughts -- my husband and I have raised our three kids (now ages 17, 21 and 23) and are celebrating our 30th Anniversary this year. It's a strange feeling seeing them with college, apartments, etc., when I so clearly remember all of our time together as they were growing up. Well, I know most people don't take the kids with when celebrating a big anniversary, but we're taking our family to Orlando (your Disney photo makes me look forward to our trip that much more!). We took the kids there a few times when they were young, but this one is... Continue Reading

 

Re: New American West !

In Carolyn Pollack 1367974140.267

I agree that if you like it enough, the composite turquoise, a.k.a. block turquoise, can still be very pretty -- and it is "real" turquoise. It all comes down to profit and pricepoints. The American West line is designed to be slightly more affordable than Carolyn's designer line. I purchased my very first piece of CP after watching for years -- the Sterling silver sleeping beauty CP ring, which is the real deal and not composite. I am very pleased with the ring, and considering the matching cuff for future purchase. There's a very finite supply of sb left -- proof of this is that CP bro... Continue Reading
