Ladies’ Home Journal – Ann Curry

Her husband calls her the brunette Doris Day, cohost Matt Lauer says she’s utterly genuine, and Today viewers count on her sunny optimism. Yes, Ann Curry really is that nice.
Ann Curry was featured on the front of the September issue of Ladies’ Home Journal magazine and she is wearing Alex Woo’s Gold Vida Earrings.  Inside she wears both Alex Woo’s Vida Earrings and Narissa Cuff.
She talks about her “greatest mission,” which has been covering humanitarian disasters around the world.  “Journalism is an act of faith in the future,” Ann touts.  Ann’s coworkers also had some really nice things to say about her.

“The warmth is utterly genuine,” Matt said.

“When you see her reporting a story that’s tragic you can see the pain. She is genuinely affected by what she’s doing. She doesn’t have a switch she can turn on and off,” Al said.

Style File: Jewelry designer Alex Woo’s summertime-perfect pendants

Here’s an ice cream cone guaranteed not to melt. Jewelry designer Alex Woo, who works out of her studio near Rockefeller Center, has dreamed up a great way to celebrate summer.

Refinery 29 – What Do You Think Of Kellan Lutz’s Man Jewelry

We’re big fans of initial pendants—always have been, always will be, which is why NYC jewelry designer Alex Woo’s teeny-bopper “Little Letters” collection is cute as a BFF gift or even a hostess prezzie. Apparently, Kellan Lutz agrees—the ripped Twilight actor was spotted on numerous occasions rocking the 14kt yellow gold initial “K” pendant with his usual button-up/T-shirt combo. We’re kind of on the fence about this man jewelry…do you think it’s more high school and less hunk, or does it work?

Jewel Snob – Alex Woo Little Faith Collection: Articles of Faith

Jewelry spans years and generations, and some pieces rarely leave our sides. So shouldn’t it be meaningful? I love jewelry with spiritual significance (though I will not shun big ole’ rocks given, “just because”!) Alex Woo‘s ethereal Little Faith Collection embraces symbols from different religious beliefs intended to provide important spiritual reminders and guidance. And now it’s got some new additions. From the protective Hamsa Hand to the motivating Chai (meaning “living”), each necklace embodies a positive, uplifting message.

My favorite is the Angel Wing. Your own guardian angel around your neck – how great is that? Nothing feels more comforting than having your special protector near your heart. The OM and the Faith symbols are also stylish tokens of blessings. You can even wear several together to make your own statement.

All of the Little Faith pieces are handcrafted in 14-karat yellow or white gold, or sterling silver (some feature diamonds) and no two pieces are identical. They are delightful as gifts – what better way to show someone you’re celebrating what’s really important in life – jewelry plus a meaningful message!

Glamour Weddings – Real Wedding Album : Jen & Brad

Here’s a super-sweet love story to get your week started with a smile!

Jen and Brad locked eyes at a mutual friend’s birthday party in 2003—when she was just a college freshman! After being introduced, the two talked, flirted, played card games, and laughed all night. Brad gave Jen big goodnight kiss and said he would call the next day. And he did! More than eight years later, Brad and Jen have never been apart. They were married January 30 at the Betty H. Reckas Cultural Center in Long Beach, California.

I’m not sure if you’ll be able to tell it in these pics, but the ceremony and reception were held in the same ballroom space! Jen and Brad’s event designer, Jeremy Smith of Thank Goodness It’s Sophia Catering, hung floor-to-ceiling white drapes during the ceremony, and removed them while guests were mingling in the venue’s foyer and courtyard during the cocktail hour.

Says Jen: “When doors to the ballroom re-opened after cocktail hour, there were gasps! ‘How did they do that so quickly?’ people asked. ‘This is awesome!’”

Behold the magic!  The bridal wedding band is from Alex Woo’s Zhuli’s Collection.
