Who are you and where do you live?
My name is Laura, I am a former employee of Rebekah Brooks and I currently live in Brooklyn.
What are you up to these days?
I am an attorney for a Wall Street law firm during the week. I am an amateur chef (for my fiancé or anyone else who comes to my kitchen) and avid city-wanderer on the weekends.
What inspires you?
I am planning my wedding at the moment, and am currently very inspired by anything that focuses me on the simplicity and essence of love and marriage. Whether it’s a song, a color or a taste, its anything that reminds me to take a step away from the fluff and focus on what really matters to me.
Vintage or Contemporary?
Both. I love a good contradiction.
How would you define your personal style?
I like to be comfortable without being boring. I like very classic pieces that have a bit of a twist, or to wear contrasting pieces like ripped denim with a sequined jacket.
How did you discover Rebekah’s jewelry?
I met Rebekah and her family right before her first store opened in Northampton. I worked in her store for a year before I went to law school.
Do you have a favorite piece & why?
Rebekah designed my engagement ring, and found the champagne diamond I had always dreamed about. I have been wearing it for nearly 8 months, and I still stare at it for at least 20 minutes a day.
She also designed the most beautiful gold leaf earrings that she lengthened for me to accentuate my neck. Aside from my engagement ring, I can’t think of another accessory that I feel completes an outfit of mine better.
What keeps you looking good?
8 hours of sleep as often as possible. I drink as much water a day as I can. And I get cardio in by dancing in the kitchen with my fiancé in the mornings.
* Thanks to Laura for doing this, it is belated going up on the blog & she is now no longer engaged, but married! Congratulations and wishing you both a lifetime of health & happiness xo
