If you’re like me, we love pearls. With that said, I don’t reach for my classic pearl set on the daily because the shape is a little too dressed up for my day-to-day. I used to look for pearl jewelry that included pearls but wasn’t the classic round shape. A pearl necklace is pretty but it doesn’t really go with a t-shirt and boyfriend jeans! Enter the ULLA pearl jewelry collection by Canadian jewelry designer, Kara Yoo. ULLA (u-la) meaning ‘gem of the sea’, is a collection that experiments with the contrast of the natural surface of pearls against geometric, hard…

It’s really not ideal when you have a long day of work ahead of you that includes meetings, fitness classes and just being “on”. So, we decided it was time to fix the issues and focus on how to…
