put a ring on it

^^^ with robbins brothers! ^^^
last week, i had the pleasure of attending the perfect valentine's day (month?)
'kick off party' hosted by my local robbins brothers
i ate cupcakes for dinner and tried on more gorgeous diamond rings
than i thought one could ever try (and susequently fell in love with several 
different cuts and styles. can i have them all?)
^^^ trying on jewelry is the perfect excuse to leave work early for a manicure, right?
and this ring! oh goodness, how it sparkles! ^^^

after i consumed far too many chocolate truffles and cupcakes, 
i continued trying on rings and decorated a mini champagne bottle with gold glitter.
everything is better when it sparkles, right? 
i was also introduced to the friendly ladies from skoah and took
a few silly photos in the photo booth robbins brothers set up in the store!

the highlight, however, was at the end of the night - i won a giveaway!
i swear i have the most terrible luck, and i don't think i have ever 
won anything (aside from possibly a christmas-themed coloring contest when i was six).
i won a gorgeous pendant necklace, and i cannot wait
to share photos here soon. thank you, robbins brothers, and 
happy early valentine's day to me (!!!).

and as a very special treat, i am being featured on the robbins brothers blog!
i'm sharing my top five places to kiss in the seattle area -
dinner at matt's in the market, a ferry ride to bainbridge island, 
a walk through sculpture park, and a few other fun and romantic local spots.
