One ring to rule them all! 

Fashion, Lifestyle, Shopping, Tech February 24, 2015

My jewelry collection has grown one bauble larger today thanks to a wonderful article written by Brit + Co. My Ringly smart ring has arrived!  It’s beyond just fashion its wearable tech, fabulous, miraculous, wearable tech.  Ringly allows you to connect to all your networks while staying in the present moment. It’s a super gorgeous 18 carat matte gold ring with a semi-precious stone. Im just in love! 

As an early adopter the founder and CEO sent a lovely thank you letter. Can’t ask for a classier company.

The packaging is exquisite.

This is what I found inside!  The little box held the black and gold USB cord the larger box holds the good stuff.

The ring box doubles as a portable charger. Just plug it in with the detachable USB cord and it charges while it charges your ring.  The box even holds the charge after it’s disconnected so you can charge on the go. Ugh…perfection!

The ring pairs with an app and alerts you to phone calls, text messages, emails, calendar events, even social media updates.  It buzzes and lights up in an array of colors (pink-more like red, yellow, blue, purple, and green). The buzz is super subtle, far more appropriate for that, middle of a board meeting, text message. My phone vibrates so loudly that I may as well have the ringer on. I’ve even set it up to buzz and shine a specific color when my beloved calls.

Basically, this is the best thing ever created. I mean next to penicillin and the printing press. So, in my humble opinion, get this ring!

I know this isn’t a super Valentiny craft. But I couldn’t resist taking my man’s horrible bachelor pillows and covering them with sequin from an old sweater. Who needs a sequin turtle neck sweater anyway? Clearly I did for some reason, but now I can see clearly and destroyed the turtle neck.

I don’t have a great step by step here. But it was really easy. Cut the fabric you want, no measuring required just eyeball it. Then I laid it on the grossest side of the pillow, folded the edge so the end of the row of sequin was secured and stitched it to the pillow with black thread. I did this by hand because I like sewing that way but you can absolutely use a machine. It turned out pretty good if I say so myself.
