Queen Bed in a Bag for Style, Ease and Affordability

Queen Bed in a Bag for Style, Ease and Affordability

When choosing bedding for a queen bed or any other size bed for that matter, buying a queen bed in a bag is one of the easiest ways to decorate a bedroom, and it is also quite affordable. A huge selection of styles and prices is available, and with queen bedding in a bag, the bed will be all ready with just one purchase.


Most bedding in a bag comes with at least the comforter and pillow shams. Many queen bed in a bag sets also come with decorative pillows or cushions along with the other pieces and some sets may include sheets and shams along with the comforter and pillow cases. Attractive seven piece sets, including comforter, two shams, a bedskirt and three decorative pillow cushions can be found for around $70 at The Loveseat Connection. Of course, the price range does go up, but it is still an affordable way to decorate a bed.

No matter the decorating style, a queen size bed in a bag can be found to match. Beautiful sleek modern designs of bold or zen like colors are available, as are more ornate luxurious designs for the more traditional bedroom with options around $500.

Another nice thing about going with a queen bed in a bag is that it can always be added to, but the basics are there. Whether the set comes with everything or not, pieces can always be changed out or added. If the set did not come with sheets for instance, a solid color complementary sheet can be put with the set, or for a more eclectic look, a contrasting sheet, either by design or color can be paired with it.

Because of the affordability, the sets are a budget conscious way to go and do not have to have the commitment of custom queen bedding. These sets are great for guest rooms as they look nice and cohesive. Add a few more decorative pillows and the queen bed will look as if a designer created it.


Boston Is Home

Boston Is Home

Boston Is Home

2Not many people know this but I consider Boston home. When I was younger we moved around a lot but when I was in high school my dad decided to actually stay in one place for two whole years so I would “know some of the people I spent my youth with.” That was Sandwich High School in Sandwich, MA on Cape Cod. I left high school, set out on my own continuing the streak of moving from city to city every year or so until I finally settled in Boston. I got a job as a fashion and beauty editor there and stayed for 8 years before moving to NYC to start my jewelry company. I’m so glad I did move to NYC but for the entire 6 years that I was there I couldn’t help but long for Boston. It’s beautiful, safe and clean. It’s small enough to walk from one end to the other without wearing out your Jimmy Choo’s and people there are actually kind. You’re probably not going to see two people threatening each other’s lives over a cab in Boston. That’s a daily occurrence in New York.
So, finally, my jewelry company is ready to expand. I can’t think of a better place to do it than Boston. Horray! Though I’m back in the hub, I’ll still be in NYC often; in my opinion, I have the best of both worlds.
If you’re ever in Boston, here are a few of my favorite places:
1Flock Boutique: this little shop is owned by the cutest girl named Dani and sits on a small street in the south end (my favorite neighborhood in Boston). They have everything from glam beaded bags to cozy sweaters and handmade scarves. They also sell Samantha House Jewelry (bonus).
Formaggio Kitchen: a totally yummy cheese shop that also sells hand made marshmallows and premade meals that taste like Martha Stewart concocted them!
Marie Galvin Hats: this totally adorable woman makes the coolest hats and fascinators– which are totally making a comeback.
Sportello & Drink: Both owned by celebrity chef Barbara Lynch, Sportello is a swanky diner with the best gnocci I’ve ever had and Drink is a craft cocktail bar. Delicious drinks and an awesome crowd.
Picking Out Tanzanite Jewelry

Picking Out Tanzanite Jewelry

These days, we do everything online, and for good reason. It’s convenient, it’s safe, and it allows you to cast a much wider net than you might have otherwise been able to do. This means you can shop around and compare prices or discover a treasure or vendor you might otherwise have missed.

When you’re thinking about purchasing jewelry, your natural inclination might be to shy away from online retailers, because oftentimes jewelry is expensive, and you might fear that – say – a photo doesn’t do the gemstone justice. Or you might just feel uncomfortable purchasing something that personal and important sight unseen. And while there is undoubtedly truth to these concerns, as long as you do your homework, spend time researching, and purchase from a reputable online seller, the online jewelry purchasing process can not only be simple and convenient – but an enjoyable one as well.

So what should you look for in an online seller? Here are a couple of suggestions to help you out:

  • Look for smaller sellers, or websites started by a small, dedicated group of people. This might mean your jeweler is family-run, or it might mean that you visit a site with a reputable blog, where the founders began the site just because they loved the gemstones they were working with. Whichever you choose, make sure that their mission is to provide you with the very best stones.
  • Make sure you purchase only from sellers who support conflict-free mining, sustainable mining, and who can speak knowledgeable and honestly about the concerns that revolve around gemstone mining and financing.
  • Check for a CONTACT US area. Is the site being run by humans – individuals who can help you if you need any questions answered, or who have experience in the jewelry industry and in customer service?
  • Consider the whole price: when you’re shopping for a tanzanite engagement ring or any engagement ring, it’s a major purchase. But consider the whole price before you write off any jewelry you deem “too” expensive. Think about the overall lifetime value of the gemstone – higher quality often lasts longer, and can come with some lifetime guarantees. You also want to consider any shipping costs or insurance costs as well.

Tanzanite JewelryThe decision to purchase a tanzanite engagement ring or special piece of tanzanite jewelry can be an exciting decision in your life – one that signifies that an important next step is about to take place. You want to make sure you’re purchasing the highest-quality engagement ring that also matches the personality and style of your loved one. Purchasing online can be a safe, convenient way to shop for your engagement ring, as long as you do a little homework on what online sellers are best.
