Say Hi

Meet Kathleen.png

That smile says it all. Say hello to Kathleen, a high-spirited, outgoing, wife-to-be, who enjoys long hikes with her puppy Cleo & everything vegan!

After graduating from Lake George high school & then moving onto college, Kay quickly realized she was more interested in traveling abroad. She spent some time in Hawaii, but ultimately decided to tackle her dream trip to Australia! After living, working, traveling & experiencing the down under for 8 months, Kathleen discovered that she wanted to become a massage therapist.

Fast forward to 2019 & not only is Kay a licensed massage therapist, but she also received her Reiki II attunement & just graduated from Yoga Kayla’s teacher training program. In fact, she’s teaching her first class there tomorrow at 8:30am! But that’s not all Kathleen’s been up to this year. In addition, she became a dog mom, was proposed to on a Valentine’s Day & the proud new co-owner of a school bus!! Kay & her fiance Zack, are now renovating it together with plans to live in it full time.

Why did Kathleen join our herd? Because she sincerely trusts in the quality of our handmade products. She can speak from experience considering we made her custom herkimer diamond engagement ring. As an artisan aromatherapy oil maker herself, Kay knows the value of something handmade with love.

We asked Kathleen 7 Lucky Questions during our latest photoshoot for our latest series release, Clover Patch. You can shop it now in-store at MinkyMink Boutique or online on my Etsy Shop.

✼ What are some small things that make your day better?

Cuddling with my fiance Zack & puppy Cleo, good music & fresh air

✼ In 3 words, how would you describe your style?

Comfy, chill & casual

✼ If you could have one superpower what would it be?

Time travel because I think it would be awesome to experience different times throughout history!

✼ What piece of jewelry can’t you leave the house without & why?

My engagement ring of course! However, I do find that I like to also wear a statement necklace. Usually a pendant of some sort. It makes me feel grounded & makes any outfit cuter, in my opinion.

✼ What influences you to buy a piece of jewelry?

My mom always said that jewelry “talks to her”. I’ve felt that deeply, a lot of the time. I just know when a piece is meant for me.

✼ What’s your favorite occasion to dress up for & what piece or style of jewelry do you wear?

A show or festival. I like to stack different types of pendants & necklaces.

✼ Do you have a favorite quote or mantra?

“May the wind always be at your back, and the sun upon your face. And may the wings of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars”.

Since graduation, she’s been working professionally in the world of dance.

Presently, Jess is managing a dance boutique in Saratoga while simultaneously teaching freelance lessons & master classes. It’s no secret, she’s a hard worker! When Jessica’s not with her sweet dachshund, Minnie, or making calligraphy art; you’ll most likely find her at the gym or kicking-ass in taekwondo with her boyfriend.

Jess joined our herd by signing up for our ambassadors program because not only does she genuinely appreciate handcrafted jewelry, but she’s a woman who knows how to seize opportunities & lead with passion.

❋ If you had a theme song, what would it be?

The song Wooden Arms by Patrick Watson really speaks to me. It’s delicate & has a powerful message. However, anything by Queen is great too. They’re so inspirational to me!

❋ How would you describe your style in 3 words or more?

Put together, trendy, fun & slightly lumberjack meets city slicker!

❋ How often do you wear jewelry?

Everyday! Jewelry is a great way to dress up any look & express your style.

❋ Do you have a family heirloom piece or a special piece with a story?

My grandmother is going to give me her original engagement ring when it’s my time! I love how sentimental that is going to be to me because I’ll always have my family with me.

❋ When buying jewelry what criteria do you normally look for?

I’m an equal opportunist with jewelry but I love rings. I like mixing bigger statement pieces with more dainty, small & stackable ones.

❋ How do you usually style your day look & your night look?

I like to piece together an outfit as uniquely as I can. Dressing up a flannel with a high waisted skirt, textured sweater tights & high heels for a dressy casual feel during the day, then amping up the eye shadow for a nighttime look.

❋ What movie can you watch over and over again?

Bridesmaids! Every time I watch it I crack up just as hard as the first time when it was in theaters.
