With Valentine's Day tomorrow, I thought today was a good time to talk about the love I have had, and currently have for Tiffany & Co.

Is there a girl who doesn't love the little blue box?

My love affair with Tiffanys began at a very young age. I went through a stage probably starting at 10 years old where I asked for a piece of Tiffany jewelry for every birthday and Christmas. I had the classic "Please Return to Tiffany" pieces and my lovely heart clasp bracelet; as I got older, I wasn't as drawn to Tiffany jewelry but there is something really special about the store, and the company.

I think it was the magic behind it, how Tiffany is put up on a pedestal, the history behind it, and the brand awareness. The store on 5th Avenue, which I've been to many times is like a girl's ideal playground.

To give you perspective, I loved Tiffany's so much as a tween/ teenager, I painted my room Tiffany Blue when pink is my favorite color. Yeah, I'd give anything for a blue box.

I can't even put into words how much I adore Tiffany's, and how I really feel like Holly Golightly when I talk about it.

That's another thing, Breakfast at Tiffany's is such an iconic movie, Audrey Hepburn in her black dress and cigarette holder is truly one of the most iconic photos of all time -- it's just simply wonderful. I didn't watch the movie until a few years ago, but it has become one of my favorites. I watch it whenever I feel a little down and it makes me feel whole again -- similar to how Blair Waldorf treated it (which I now need to go rewatch Gossip Girl).

I recently got the Tiffany bug again, one of the reasons being the new Blue Box Cafe that opened over the holidays. I cannot wait to really have Breakfast at Tiffany's. I will report back with a review/post when I do actually go, maybe later in the Spring.

With that Tiffany bug, I've been creating a wishlist of things I want. There are just a few pieces under $200 that I have my eye on. That's the thing about Tiffany's, there's something for everyone.

I'm hoping to take the 10-minute walk from my office to the iconic flagship store and buy this beaded bracelet. 

Do you have any pieces of Tiffany jewelry? Did you go through a Tiffany & Co phase?
