A few light reading links and some Easter ideas to amuse you today:

Carolina Herrera, the fashion designer, who can wear anything designer from her own label, relies on a classic, well fitted white shirt as a wardrobe staple.

Shabby Chic designer, pioneer and store owner Rachel Ashwell’s country Inn in Texas Hill Country is a dreamy, romantic getaway.

Love the colors of these natural dyed Easter eggs.

Anniversary Gifts: 3 years means Pearls

Thinking of giving her jewelry for your 3 year anniversary?  Pearls are the traditional gift.   (See the chart, here.)  Pearl jewelry always makes a thoughtful gift because pearls are timeless.  (That’s why pearls are listed early on the chart…what you give her in year 3 can be enjoyed for many years to come.)   She can wear a strand the traditional way or mixed with other materials for a more modern look.  We love Majorica pearl jewelry for its quality and beauty.  Pearls should be a special gift.  Why not make it Majorica pearls from Ann’s?

Scent attracts, pleases buyers

An article in today’s Wall Street Journal describes the use of custom scents by developers and realtors to entice buyers of high-end properties. Read or scan the article, here.  In a nutshell:  pleasing scent attracts buyers, making your property memorable and more appealing.  The kicker:  custom scents cost thousands of dollars.

Too bad they didn’t interview Ann for this article.  Ann’s has helped Houston realtors and agents sell houses for years!  The secret?  Lampe Berger home fragrance.

Are you selling a house?  Have you worked hard to keep it clean, spent money painting, renovating, and clearing out your possessions to make it appealing?  Create a memorable impression when you use Lampe Berger during showings.   You don’t need to spend thousands to develop a custom scent.   Lampe Berger’s “Fresh Linen” will do the job nicely for $19.95 a bottle.  Read more about Ann’s Lampe Berger Fragrances here.
