A handful of weeks ago I was invited to attend an open house at Twisted Sisters in Indianapolis. Have you been to Twisted Sisters? It’s a very cool gift shop/boutique located around 71st & Binford Blvd. I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’m a fan of gift shops and when I heard that Twisted Sisters stocks lots of cool jewelry I had to go. The store sells lots of other fun items, but I’ve got a thing for jewelry. It’s really a love of jewelry. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but I feel the right ring, necklace, bracelet, pin, watch or pair of earrings can transform an outfit. It’s really magical.

Let’s get back to Twisted Sisters. It’s independently owned and operated by 2 sisters (Linda and Theresa) and their friend Judy. I don’t have sisters, but I have awesome aunts… close, right? I’m happy to support local businesses owned by women that offer local products and sell many inexpensive gifts. Need a gift for that next party or holiday? This is your place. They even package your gift nicely in a cute bag with lots of tissue paper and ribbon. So easy!

I got a close look at the jewelry and thought I’d share some favorite finds with you. These pieces of jewelry are under $30.

You’ll find jewelry that you don’t see everywhere. I love that! Bonus: It’s fun to shop at a store where you receive friendly service.

Stretchy jeweled bracelets. They’re around $8 a piece. Perfect for buying a few and stacking them together.

Rings. I love them. I purchased this zipper ring at Twisted Sisters. It’s around $8. I’ve received tons of compliments on it. It’s stretchy too! I’ve worn this ring a lot and it’s holding up very nicely. Can you beat an $8 ring? I think not!

Earrings. These gorgeous earrings come in vibrant colors and in black! & are around $14 a pair. You can go casual or fancy with these.

Show your Indiana love. I’m all about state jewelry and these state of Indiana necklaces displayed on the circle tray below (in gold and copper color) are around $22.

When I travel I like to keep jewelry in a small bag. This one is perfect. It holds a few pieces of jewelry or a cell phone or you can use as a wallet or make up bag. It’s by Boris Loved Natasha and it’s around $14.

Holiday shopping season is right around the corner. Do yourself a favor and stop in Twisted Sisters. You’ll find unique and chic jewelry here (in addition to purses, scarves, accessories, kitchen items and all sorts of things) which is perfect for a hostess gift or holiday gift or just for you!

Meal on My Mind: Pork Tacos from The Tamale Place

Let’s talk about tacos. The Tamale Place has been around for a while and yet their tacos are my favorite item there (the guacamole is a very close 2nd). Don’t get me wrong, the tamales are tasty (especially spicy ones, imo) but I’ve always been more of a taco girl and the pork tacos at The Tamale Place are outstanding. They’re addictive (around $2.50 a piece and 1 taco is huge). I’ve gone out of my way to stop there and pick up some. They’re that good. The pork is cooked a long time and then charred on the grill, and it’s super flavorful.

The Tamale Place’s Indy location on Rockville Road (just inside 465) has some seating, but I always get my food to go. If you stop there and get yours to go. Here’s a few tips. The tacos are always served with onions, cilantro, salsa and cheese (the insanely good white cheese) unless you as for a substitution. I order mine with just onions and cilantro and everything else on the side. The tacos carry much better and reheat well (if necessary) if you do this. I also order a small container of white cheese, salsa, guacamole, a small container of limes (I love lots of limes) and a small bag of chips. Who’s ready for a taco party?

Dapper Dog

This is my dog Louis (pronounced Louie). Yep, you’ll see a lot of photos of him on the blog and/or Twitter. I’m all kinds of crazy about him. He’s a miniature Poodle mix (not sure of what other breed, possibly Bichon). Any ideas of what breed? Maybe I need to get a DNA test kit for him. Have you seen those in pet stores? Ha. Too funny!

Here are a few of Louis’ favorite things: Starbucks (pup cup!), riding in the car, chasing geese (he’d make an excellent geese herder or can scare off geese)….and visiting any pet supply store.

A long walk at West Park may be at the top of Louis’ list of faves.
