Well We All Slog On...

Yes, I know
This week there's not much to be happy about
Consumer spending is down for the first time in two years
Gold Prices reached another record high
Unemployment is through the roof

So why am I smiling in my vintage silver jewelry?

I'm smiling because it's summer...still

and because my brother and my nephew will be in California this week
and because my entire family is getting together for a barbecue

and because while we are always in some sort of economic crisis or another
we just get used to it and slog on

I'm also smiling because at Beladora.com we are in the unique position of being able to offer
jewelry by uber trendy designers
whose jewelry is sold at Barney's New York
such as Pippa Small, Renee Lewis and Aurora Lopez Mejia
at a fraction of the Barney's price
(the jewelry is not uploaded to the website yet...but I'm telling you about it first)

Aurora Lopez Mejia jewelry in 18K

and because at Beladora2.com we've got fabulous vintage sterling silver jewelry which looks great and is priced for these tough economic times

On we shall slog

Sometimes all we can do is smile in the hard times and enjoy what we have in front of us!

I love your summer look!

A smile is, we always think, the most wonderful of human reactions, which nine times out of ten is returned with a smile. What else?

You look quite splendid in that pic, what a teeny tiny torso you have and such upright carriage. Sounds like you have a lovely family time coming up.

You look gorgeous dhalink!

OK, so where's all the money gone, someone must have it?

Loving Aurora Lopez Meijia's jewellry...conflicted about the fact the $NZ buys almost US.90c (can't remember it ever being so good/bad), and horrified by the US debt vs. GDP graph.

Agree slogging on (in style) seems as good a response as any.

I hope you had a great time at your family BBQ.

SSG: if the US economy could be in as good of shape as the Australian economy, I would be a lot less concerned. Btt I agree that in times like this it is good to concentrate on our families and the things that are important to us. But for the record, I'm not just smiling and slogging right now, I'm praying for an economic recovery too!

Hattats: Yes, if nothing else smiling does have a way to be infectious and making us all feel better.

Tabitha: Thank you, now if I could just go on one of the wild fitness things that you posted about I would have more than an upright carriage!

Yonks: My idea exactly...where is all the money. Oh wait, the government spent it on stupid stuff like monkey cocaine studies and cowboy poetry. No, seriously, the US Government funded this nonsense.

MT: Well, with the dollar so low it is a good time for my international clients to be buying from Beladora.com. The exchange rate is definitely in their favor.
I'm glad that you like the Aurora Lopez Mejia jewelry. We have quite a few pieces of it and we are going to be selling at truly a fraction of the Barney's NY prices.
