This whirlwind romance lead to a quick engagement, but check out that huge sparkler! A beautiful huge round diamond yellow gold engagement ring with a beautiful halo. Bow Wow (actual name is Shad Moss), worked closely with a designer to create this beauty for his soon-to-be bride!

Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross
Ashlee Simpson’s absolutely gorgeous, one of a kind engagement ring is a nod to art deco. The marquise cut center diamond is surrounded by beautiful rubies and even more diamonds! I love this unique engagement ring, which was specifically designed by Evan Ross.

Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade
Gabrielle Union, the amazing wonder woman who seems to never age, was engaged during 2014 and already married! The happy couple announced their engagement over Instagram, showing off her dazzling solitaire cushion cut engagement ring from Miami Heat point guard, Dwayne Wade. Absolutely gorgeous, oh and the ring ain’t half bad, either.

Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney
I’m going to go ahead and call this the engagement (and wedding) of the year! The world was in a frenzy when George started popping up around town with this gorgeous, intelligent, activist beauty. Soon, Amal has become a household name and the world practically exploded when they were engaged with this ethically mined emerald cut engagement ring. Wowsers.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
These new parents got engaged shortly after they found out they were expecting a child soon! From the few rare pictures we’ve seen of Mila’s engagement ring, we’re going to call it a classic round diamond solitaire engagement ring. Perfect for this low key, no fuss That 70′s Show couple.

Seriously, this couple is way too beautiful to even look at. They got engaged New Years 2014, and they’re already married!

Favorite Fall Fashion Trends 2014

By guest fashion blogger Necole Peralta, B3lla Cara

Summer was short and sweet. Now it’s time to retire the next to nothing cuteness for some fall favorites! Yep, fall is back. While you can always rely on the darker tones to see you through the season, wait a sec before you reach for your tried and true greys and browns. There’s a new trend sweeping the scene for fall, military green, and it really has me giddy! So if you’ve never had the chance to stand on a battlefield, military style, well here’s your chance sorta!

When In Fall…Go Green!

The corporate grind can leave a girl wondering where the closest happy hour is! What’s the infamous saying? “Work hard Play hard!” Well here’s how fall’s latest trends can take you from closing business deals to opening tabs. How do you seamlessly transition from the office to happy hour in style? Remember that black on black is important (I think that’s a Jay Z lyric and it stuck!) to keeping that corporate edge while in the office and transforming to totally chic after hours. All black has made quite the come back, so go wild.

Don’t know what to rock for the next GNO festivities? Well think body.hugging.hotness and you can’t go wrong. Just because the temps are dropping doesn’t mean it’s time to cover up. Nope fall is all about showing the right amount of skin & curves (emphasis on “right” ladies, too much can be catastrophic on so many levels, but that’s another blog post)! After all, the coveted GNO is all about letting your hair down, throwing back some sweet libations, dancing with your girls and turning some heads in the process. So get ready to show em’ what you’re working with. And who best to provide a nice snapshot of some GNO style than our fab, curvaceous faves-Beyonce, Amber Rose, Solange and Kim K.

Being a mommy to two active boys, I would be remiss to not show my mommys how to step out in fall fashion style this season. We don’t know a mommy on earth that wants to run around uncomfortable and cold all day with the kiddies. So moms, your day out with the kiddies on a cool fall afternoon, should look like your grandpa’s old flannel (just a bit sleeker and chic however) and a stylish flat boot, whether it’s a chic pair of Louis Vuittons or a bold color Hunter rain boot. Whatever your choice, cute can be comfy, so rock it out mamis. Oh and please don’t forget your RB bling!

Big Brother 16 Contestants Jeff & Jordan Get Engaged with Robbins Brothers Ring

Just Engaged! Sending a warm congratulations to contestants Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd who were recently engaged on CBS’ Big Brother 16. When Jeff visited the Woodland Hills store, it was such a pleasure helping him find the ring that Jordan would adore. He was so excited and even a little nervous picking it out, but our wonderful engagement ring consultants, Amy Butler and Moraima Alamillo, helped put him right at ease. It was a ring-shopping “party” as the ladies assisted Jeff with his decision on a gorgeous cushion-cut halo diamond engagement ring from the Robbins Brothers Vintage Collection.
