We’re already three weeks into the New Year!! We’re loving every minute of 2015, but we’re amazed at how fast it’s already speeding by, and it’s time to take advantage of this New Year madness to get our 2015 resolutions in order.
Here are a few of our resolutions for the twelve months of 2015… what are some of yours?
We are constantly getting inspiration from the world around us—from stones to trees and skyscrapers to sandcastles. Our designers take from the world around us to make beautiful things, and we love that there is so much to enjoy in the world around us.
Letting yourself be inspired seems like an odd resolution, but there is something to be said for taking walk and letting the fresh air breathe new life into your skin. For taking a moment to watch a river flow by and imagine how it could change you, or the way you think. For listening to a symphony and giving yourself a chance to let it give your soul new life.
We resolve to be inspired by the everyday!
This resolution is at the core of Nashelle’s vision. For every piece of jewelry we make, we donate to organizations that feed the hungry. We also have various programs that support families dealing with cancer, women entrepreneurs in third world countries, and Anti-Bullying campaigns. But there is so much more that this world needs, and we want to help however we can!
We’re excited to expand our Anti-Bullying campaign in this New Year, working with amazing organizations like The Farley Project and Legacy X to help kids who are being bullied, as well as spreading the mission of love and kindness in schools!
TRY NEW THINGS
This has got to be one of our favorite resolutions… trying new things! A little vague, perhaps—but exciting all the same. We took a step into the realm of new things this month, with the launch of our new line, Omni! This line is very different from our more famous personalized jewelry, but it’s a fun step in a new direction for us!
We’re also really excited about our new sister company that joined Nashelle back in 2014, Ija! If you haven’t had a chance to take a look at their website yet, be sure to visit www.ijadesigns.com and see what they have! We love everything about this company, and we’re excited to see them expand in the New Year.
What are some of the resolutions that you have for the New Year? Share with us on Facebook, we want to hear from you!
It takes a dedicated community to step forward and say, "We will not let our people go hungry." Showing compassion and love for our fellow humans enriches the body and soul, and Central Oregon is great at giving back.
Throughout Central Oregon, people have a place to turn to, because organizations are ready to help make a difference. NeighborImpact is one of those not-for-profit organizations, dedicated to helping families at every stage of their lives. NeighborImpact empowers individuals and families to better their lives, so they can become successful in what they do, and provide a safe and healthy lifestyle for their children. Operating since 1985, this nonprofit provides a wealth of services for people in need.
NeighborImpact provides housing assistance, heating and energy assistance, and childcare resources—and they also provide a regional food bank for individuals and families who struggle to put meals on the table. NeighborImpact gathers food from businesses and individuals in our community, and distributes them to local food pantries in the Central Oregon region.
Showing compassion and love for people is always a worthwhile endeavor, and as we band together to help the less fortunate, the community grows stronger as a whole. Organizations like NeighborImpact make a daily difference for people who are in need, and we love being able to be a part of what they do.
For every piece of jewelry that leaves the Nashelle warehouse, we donate a plate of food through NeighborImpact locally, and Feeding America nationally. We are so blessed to have an amazing local organization like NeighborImpact in our community, and we love that we’re able to help support the less fortunate in the Central Oregon cities!
Help us support NeighborImpact by donating to their organization, or getting involved through volunteer efforts! Visit their website at www.neighborimpact.org, and spread the love!

The turning of the New Year is always exciting—there’s champagne, glitter, high heels, fireworks and dancing! But an overlooked part of the New Year is also pretty fantastic: the new Pantone Color of the Year!
This year we’re especially excited by the color chosen, because the deep reds and browns in Marsala make for gorgeous stones, in our Ruby and Garnet stone mixes.
Meet Marsala, the Pantone Color of 2015!
The red and brown tones of Marsala are gorgeous paired with most colors! Marsala nails with a black dress, marsala lipstick against skin tones, marsala eye shadow with a brown liner—it’s the perfect layering color!
Nashelle in Marsala
Our Ruby and Garnet mixes are the stones that match Marsala best! A few examples are below (from our Luxe, Signature and Charisma collections) of our favorite Marsala jewelry—we just can’t get enough of this color.
Marsala on Celebrities
We aren’t the only ones obsessing over Pantone’s new color of the year! Celebrities are rocking Marsala like crazy, and we’re loving it! Here are a few shots of celebs who have already worn the Marsala color—before Pantone even chose it!
Another year, another award show! Not that we’re complaining—we were definitely curled up with a glass of wine on Sunday, watching the Golden Globes and giggling every time Tina and Amy spoke. We can’t get over how adorable those two are!
And of course, we were so excited to see who won! Naturally, Birdman took home a globe or two, but we were surprised to see new show Jane the Virin snag one as well! The obvious winner of the night was Boyhood... three Golden Globes? Since it took them twelve years to create that movie, we feel it was well-deserved. We were really excited to see The Grand Budapest Hotel take the Best Comedy award—such a brilliant movie!
But the biggest part of the night for us has to be the Golden Globe styles. The red carpet portion of the night is the part where we’re on the edge of our seats, watching colors and metals and beautiful people walk by! The interviews, the nail shots, the fashion faux pas and the “oooh” moments—that’s what we live for!
As a fashion brand, we get a lot of inspiration from the red carpet! Celebrities tend to be the trend-setters for upcoming fashion movements, and award show season is the best for that!
Below are a few of our favorite moments from the Golden Globe Red Carpet:
Emma and Lorde rocked the pant look this year—and if anyone can pull it off, it’s definitely those two!
Amal, Jennifer, Gina and Patricia ROCKED that all black on the red carpet...
But we have to say - those colored gowns are some of our favorites!
Now that the Golden Globe award show is over, we’re just holding our breath for the Oscars! The nominees were announced today, but we’ll have to wait until February 22 for the red carpet event!
