Discover Aperitifs, the Summertime Answer to Cocktails

The calendar doesn’t agree, but according to the unseasonably early heat wave last week here in the Mid-Ohio Valley, summer has arrived. With our deck furniture recently hosed off and a our café glasses brought out from storage, we were prepared to cool off with a relaxing aperitif on the porch.

Aperitifs are a category of drinks as well as a tradition throughout the Mediterranean, yes, but they’re also a state of mind. “L’apéritif is both a beverage and a social activity,” writes author Georgeanne Brennan in her book Aperitif: Stylish Drinks & Recipes for the Cocktail Hour. “The beverages are rarely strong spirits and the accompanying food never satiates, as the purpose is to pique the appetite.” Unlike the offerings seen in the America’s currently booming cocktail scene, aperitifs are light on the booze, usually only contain a few simple components and are intended to stimulate the palate rather than bludgeon it. In fact, aperitifs don’t even need to contain alcohol  a simple lemonade (or citron pressé, in fancy French terms) could count. It’s all about context.

IMG_3308

Summertime refreshment and boho chic jewelry? Yes, please!

Aperitifs are all about transitioning from the busiest part of the day to the more relaxed, carefree time after the workday ends. Add some sun, casual company and a salty snack or two, and you have an occasion to reconnect with friends and enjoy the pleasures of the season. Sometimes, though, savoring an aperitif solo is also enjoyable. It’s the time you take for yourself to assess how the day went and what the remainder of the day holds…or to simply sit and think about nothing at all.

Your house aperitif could be anything from a glass of white or rosé wine, to a booch ‘n’ hooch, to a cooling beer cocktail…or our all-time favorite, Lillet Blanc. In France, aromatized and fortified wines served deeply chilled are common aperitifs, and the Bordeaux-produced Lillet (established in 1872) is a classic. It’s a blend of Sémillon and Sauvignoin Blanc wines flavored with orange and lemon brandies and a hint of quinine. It’s sweet and citrusy, but not cloying.

IMG_3306

A delicious drink and fabulous jewelry are a beautiful solution to a hot summer day.

The manufacturer recommends serving it straight, very cold, but we prefer it over lots of cracked ice and garnished with an orange slice to accentuate its sunny appeal. Another popular variation cuts the Lillet Blanc with club soda or sparkling water and lime.

If you’d like a little nibble with your aperitif, think light and crunchy. Salted almonds, a fresh crudite platter, marinated mushrooms, black and green olives, spicy popcorn, or hard or soft cheeses with crackers are easy to throw together and won’t spoil your dinner — unless you’re content to make the whole aperitif experience your evening meal. In which case, snack away!

IMG_3307

This breezy take on the traditional cocktail hour is gloriously light and refreshing.

Now that warm (or hot) weather is here, you don’t have to stick with the heavy-handed cocktail hour with its heavy appetizers and palate-wrecking liquors. An aperitif allows you to add some levity to your summer days. It’s a ritual that may sound frivolous at first, but you’ll soon find it’s the stuff of life, setting the tone for all that follows.

Clip on Earrings

Why We Love Clip On Earrings

Here at Heirloom Finds, we strive to cater to a variety of fashionistas with unique style requirements. One such type that often goes overlooked and under-celebrated elsewhere is the clip on earring wearer. Some people prefer to avoid needles and piercings for a number of reasons, and so must replace post backs and French hooks with clips and cuffs for styling their ear candy.

Clip on Earrings Trio

These crystalline baubles are anything but lackluster!

What we find particularly fabulous about clip on earrings is that they don’t stretch out the holes in pierced earlobes. They can decorate both pierced and unpierced ears equally, without leaving any trendsetter excluded. And if you want to further accessorize your wardrobe and establish yourself as a fashion maverick, clip ons make amazing additions to sweater necklines, shoes and more! Because they’re so versatile and lovely for any occasion, we’re thrilled to offer a range of both new and vintage clip on earrings for your perusing pleasure.

Collar

Clip on earrings are lovely for lobes and fabulous for sweater necklines!

Although ear piercing is one of the earliest recognized forms of body modification, it did not become a mainstream practice in the United States until the 1970’s. A glance at vintage earrings dating from before this decade reveals gorgeous arrangements of colorful crystals that are so easy to love. The boldly metallic mod artifacts of the 1980’s have their own appeal, while today’s clip on collections are artfully curated to accommodate the diva who would hate to miss out on an opportunity to accessorize just because she’s never gotten her ears pierced.

Glam up your denim with clustered vintage brooches and clip ons to match.

Are you interested in finding alternative ways to style these versatile baubles? Arrange your hair into an up-do and add one or a few clip ons for a wholly original coif when you need to make a memorable statement. Glam up your outerwear by fastening some earrings into your jacket’s buttonholes as an outrageous take on traditional brooches. These methods are particularly excellent for giving new life to old earrings that have perhaps lost their partners but still deserve some time to shine.

IMG_2336

Let your shoes make a statement by attaching some gorgeous clip ons.

There’s no need to be intimidated by clip on earrings. They come in extraordinarily chic modern designs and fantastically retro compositions, and are oh-so appealing for their ease of use that makes accessorizing refreshingly simple. So don’t be afraid to rock these beauties!  You could be missing out on something truly, fashionably wonderful.

Celebrate Friendship with Gorgeous BFF Jewelry

Best Friends

Best friends jewelry is as meaningful as it is fabulous.

Best friends: you began by finding one (or perhaps several) around the time you first started school, never realizing that a close relationship with a buddy could someday become one of the most important alliances of your life. Whether you have lost count of how many years you’ve known your best friend, or you have only just recently found someone but felt instantly connected, a special friendship deserves to be commemorated.

BFF necklaces

One to wear and one to share! These necklaces add a twist to traditional BFF heart pendants.

Perhaps the most widely recognized type of friendship jewelry is the interlocking pendant set. So sweetly sentimental, you and your best friend can join two pendants together to create one fantastic design, which is most often a heart. Whenever you’re apart and no matter where you go, one half of a friendship necklace set will always remind you that the person who shares the other half as well as your joys, secrets and sorrows is still thinking of you. Looking for something in the same vein but just a little different? Try a coordinating jigsaw puzzle piece ring set!

BFF Rings

Bring friendship glam to your digits with this triple set of jigsaw puzzle stretch rings.

There’s no reason to believe that heart pendant necklaces are the only option for showing your number one pal some devotion. These fabulous macrame bracelets capture the youthful arts and crafts spirit of lighthearted days spent at summer camp. Simply choose a color and style that both of you will love. Can’t decide on just one? Stack multiple bracelets together for meaningful matching arm parties!

Red BFF Bracelets

Wearing matching macrame bracelets is an excellent way to connect with your bestie.

Of course, you and your best friend have similar interests. Why not show off one of them with fun iconic jewelry? Whether it’s a pastime you both enjoy, a shared favorite animal or a mutually much-loved motif, wearing matching iconic baubles is a great way to increase your connection.

BFF Giraffe Necklaces

Celebrate your shared interests with fashionably fun iconic jewelry.

If you have little ones at home, it helps to make sure they start forming friendships early. Their BFFs now might just become lifelong companions as they grow older. Giving them pretty jewelry to share and cherish is a simple step in fostering a blossoming friendship.

BFF Teen Bracelets

BFF jewelry for kids and teens helps to start them off right on a lifetime of friendship.

It’s always important to find good friends you can trust. Celebrating their valuable presence in your life with gorgeous and heartfelt accessories helps show them how much they mean to you. A long-lasting friendship is always a beautiful thing, and wearing jewelry to match makes everything that much more meaningful.
