Q&A: Thanksgiving 911

Every Thanksgiving hostess has his or her moments of anxiety. Hell, I've been making holiday dinners and hosting dinner parties for a decade, and I still get a little nervous when it come to roasting the perfect turkey. That combined with kids, houseguests, and having to make an endless supply of side dishes all timed in perfect harmony...it's a lot for one person. Hopefully by the time you've read this post, I will have answered any of your looming questions, but if there is still anything you are concerned about, please leave a comment at the end of the post, and I'll be sure to answer.

1. What if I overcook the turkey, and the breast meat is dry? Slice it thin and soak it in warm chicken or turkey stock.
2. How do I get the skin beautiful golden brown? Lots of butter! Separate the skin and push butter directly over the meat then spread more butter over the outside of the skin. Also cover just the breast of th…

The Hottest Jewelry Trends for 2015


If you look up "2015 jewelry trends", you're likely to come up with article after article displaying the most striking accessories from the Spring/Summer 2015 runways, but those trends don't always translate to the real world. I've featured the pieces you'll see on the street and in stores this year. Certain trends like the statement necklace are still in and will always be, especially around the holidays. Still trending from last season include thin stacking rings and midi rings along with arrow-motif jewelry. Some jewelry trends aren't about what you wear but how you wear it. When it comes to bracelets, for example, the stack is back. Layer a fashion watch with a few thin stretch bracelets and a trendy open cuff. In addition to the usual spring and summer jewelry trends like turquoise, natural stone, acrylics, and fringe; here are the top trends in fashion jewelry that are popping up for 2015.

Jewelry Trends

Massive jeweled statement earrings have been replaced by these smaller but equally glitzy statement studs. It's the perfect pair of earrings to wear with a flirty spring dress.

Jewlery Trends 2015

So the big, gigantic ear cuff trend didn't exactly go mainstream last season. No surprise there. This more subtle version, referred to as "climbers" or "crawlers" is a great way to wear the trend this year.

2015 Jewerly Trends

Natural stones are a huge jewelry trend this year, perhaps even surpassing the usual turquoise for spring and summer, though my favorite is the marbled stone trend, seen on more modern and edgy pieces.

Rings

The thin stacking and midi rings that were so trendy in 2014 are still hot for 2015, but they've been joined by both thin open rings and the wide band rings seen above. The wide rings come in both regular and midi rings. Wear them alone or pair them with a few slim midi rings.

1. Forever 21 mid finger ring 2. Eternity ring 3. Topshop ring 4. 5. Crystal jewelry 6. Mid finger ring

Trending: layered pendants

Don't worry, the massive and glamorous statement necklaces are still on trend. They've in fact reached a point where they've become classic and won't be going out of style anytime soon. But when it comes to the trendiest necklaces for 2015, it's all about delicate layered pendant necklaces. You can find them as multi-strand necklaces that are already layered, or you can mix and match single pendant necklaces to create your own layered look. I really love this trend, because it looks great with various necklines. Pair it with a scoop-neck tank and blazer in the spring, and pair it with a tank dress for summer.

Jewelry Trends

Pearls have been slowly coming back the last few years with all of the beautiful statement jewelry that has been trending. For 2015, pearls are being paired with modern pieces - spikes even.

Open Chokers

I have to be honest. I'm not sure I like this trend too much, but here it is. The open ring and open cuff trends have graduated to necklaces in the form of the open choker.

A few more big jewelry trends for 2015 not pictured above include tassels, leather jewelry, mod hoops, hand and body chains, and "ear jackets" also referred to as "swing studs". Which ones are your favorite jewelry trends?
