Little Black Box

Many females get excited for a “little blue box”, but not me!  I’ve never really been a fan of Tiffany’s actually.  I like jewelry, don’t get me wrong but I like more unique pieces rather than mass marketed diamond rings and key necklaces (no offense to anyone who owns or likes their products, it’s just…

A Very Merry Christmas
