Congratulations! You’re officially a part of The Ivy Branch blog! We’ve decided to “branch” out a bit and create a place where we can talk about the other things in life that matter. Ya know, like celebs, fashion, trends and of course…myself. Speaking of, my name’s Lauren. I’ve never done a blog before so bear with me. It’s one of those things where I think I’m really funny but seriously wonder if anyone else does…I suppose time will tell! But let’s be nice? I’m sorta sensitive. Irina has put her faith in me to entertain, so entertain I shall! So we thought it fitting that our very first blog post be dedicated to the very first birthday of Irina Victoria Jewelry! We can’t believe it’s officially been a year since the launch of the company. 2014 was incredibly good to us.
With our birthday and the turning of the new year, we can’t help but feel a bit nostalgic. Okay, I can’t help it. Not to mention I’m turning 28 at the end of January. (eek) I suppose I can get a bit emotional when I think about how quickly time can fly. Believe it or not, Irina (creator and designer of IVJ) has been one of my closest friends since elementary school. Over the years we’ve accumulated some pretty great, and embarrassing pictures. I thought it might be fun to share!
Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we?
Oh hayyy. A back in the day buffet of me and Irina ❤ So this is pre 8th grade semi formal. Let’s talk about a few things happening here. First, the big hair. Second, the lovely backdrop of pool equipment and tool shed. Third, the ill fitting dresses from the juniors department at Sears. And lastly, the loving embrace.
Kids these days will never know the feeling of developing pictures and your heart sinking because you have drunk eyes in all the shots. Also, bangs. Also, Abercrombie. Happy first birthday! Happy 2015! We love what we do so very much and hope it shows ❤
auf wiedersehen! Lauren xo
