image1Hello. My name’s Anna Pickard from New Jersey. I am a passionate writer and blogger and have been featured as a publicist on sites such as Huffington Post and Buzzfeed. Please check back for a list of my newest articles.

Hey there everyone out in Internet Land, I’m Anna and it’s my distinct pleasure to make your acquaintance! I may be the tiniest bit late to the blogging world, but that old saying about it being better to be late than never even showing up at all seems awfully appealing right now. So yeah, let’s just go with that!

Since you’ve bothered visiting and even being kind enough to click over to this “about” section, I figured I should prepare a brief little bit of info about myself. I’m pretty shy in real life, so sharing isn’t exactly my forte. But hey, let’s give it a shot!

First of all, one of my favorite hobbies as of late is scouring Youtube. There are countless creators on there making their own shows about their lives or their own artistic projects, and it’s so inspiring to take it all in. There are entire communities circulating around pretty much every topic you could imagine on there. Even though this is “just a blog”, seeing all of that was one of the biggest inspirations for taking up the reigns and carving out a little space online for myself. Just like everyone on Youtube, I’m so looking forward to sharing everything with as much of the world as possible!

I’ve also found myself visiting flea markets and traveling to check out roadshows on the weekends more and more. I never thought I’d care much about antiquing, but it’s really interesting coming across all of these relics and strange old forgotten items. I like browsing retail and department stores as much as the next person, but it’s pretty much all the same stuff. It’s a much more enriching experience checking out people’s old belongings, and I’m always coming across something new that I never even knew existed before. It’s really amazing.

I also adore going to the movies, and I try to see as many of them as I can. It’s awfully expensive to go to the theater these days, and it’s even worse when you pay for a ticket at full price only to have the experience ruined for you by someone that won’t be quiet or turn off their cell phone! Even so, there’s just something about sitting down in front of the big screen to take in a great story for a couple of hours. I’ve been trying to catch more early showings and matinees as of late, both to save money and also avoid crowds! But no matter what, I know I’ll always absolutely love the movies.

Well, I think that’s more than enough babbling for now. All of that ballyhoo above really just scratches the surface of everything I’m into of course, but you can be sure to find out much more as I continue to post on the main page! I’m super excited for wherever the blog happens to take me next, and I’m so happy that you’re here! I genuinely hope that you’ll stick around for the journey. Thank you again for stopping by!

Disney Engagement Ring

Here is a sample article I did for a jewelry blog:

If you’re getting married to a Disney fan, or a princess all her own, one of the most romantic and appropriate engagement rings to consider is a Disney princess-inspired engagement ring, which several different jewelers now carry.

What is a Disney Engagement Ring?

A Disney engagement ring is a ring that has been fashioned to fit and match each Disney princess, in accordance not only to that princess’ style, but color palette as well. Plus, inscribed on the inside of the ring is a quote from the corresponding film, that not only makes sense for that ring, but for your loved one as well.

 Who is your favorite Disney princess? How about a beautiful blue sapphire and diamond halo engagement ring, inscribed with the words, “Dancing on a cloud…” to match your Cinderella story. Or a beautiful square, filigree gold ring with sapphire and ruby gemstones for your own Belle of the ball. Or my favorite, the rose gold with ruby gemstone ring inscribed with the words, “Listen to your heart…” that matches the spirit of Pocahontas.

What rings are offered

The other rings that are currently offered include the Aurora ring (inscribed with, “Once upon a dream”) and with a beautiful pink gemstone center and gold band. The Jasmine ring that has a square-cut blue topaz stone and aquamarine settings down the sides of the silver band. Mulan’s is a larger face, with emeralds and a flower setting with “The most beautiful of all” inscribed within. There are also rings for Snow White and Ariel, and even rings for the newer Disney princesses, including one for Rapunzel (from Tangled), Tiana (from The Princess and the Frog), Arendelle and Elsa (from Frozen).

Why Choose a Disney Princess Ring

Disney Princess Engagement Rings are not only creative ways to express your love, but they are also unique and eye-catching adornments for your finger. These engagement rings are not only beautiful and have creative settings and jewels that match birthstones, but they are also a wonderful gift for anyone who has empathized or bonded with a certain Disney character. If your loved one thinks she’s the Belle of the ball, the Belle-inspired ring is not only a beautiful promise of your nuptials, but also something that can remind her of her past, and connect her with a part of herself that is fun and personal.

Disney princess rings are not to be mistaken for other Disney-inspired engagement rings, including rings where the stones are in the shape of Mickey Mouse, like this Disney-inspired black diamond & tanzanite engagement ring in 14k white gold.

 If you are getting married to a Disney fan, or you yourself think that the Disney-inspired engagement rings are a unique and touching idea, you should check out Pinterest and eBay for links to where these rings are sold.
