We Heart Sarah Jessica Parker’s Pendant Necklace

“We Heart Sarah Jessica Parker’s Pendant Necklace- hot jewelry trend!

Light-Up Jimmy Choo Zap Sandals brighten your nights

“Light-Up Jimmy Choo Zap Sandals brighten your nights. They will see you coming & going in these too fabulous sandals that light up with every step!It’s funny but I was secretly thrilled when my then kindergarten age son didn’t have an ongoing yen for those light-up sneakers.

Instead of dancing under the infamous neon moon and spoon, the Jimmy Choo light-up shoes have some glowing disco lights in their 5″ heels.>> SHOP: Platform Shoes”
