It’s our favorite time of year and also our busiest. Our Island Cowgirl elves are hard at work in the studio prepping tons of beautiful pieces to be shipped out for the holidays….
We get excited each year about putting together the December window display because of its cheery christmas vibe.
It seems like everyone is filled with the spirit of giving this time of year… and we love being a little part of our customers holiday joy.
We also offer adorable gift wrapping to our in store customers during the holidays for that extra festive touch…. its a toss up as to who enjoys our wrapping more, the person receiving it or us for putting it together, making a pretty present!
Stop by to enjoy this years decorations and shop around!
We had so much fun doing our holiday shoot this year…We had a lovely, wonderful model, great inspirational jewelry stacked up high, some holly for good cheer….and of course Nigel photo-bombing the whole shoot.
This included doling out kisses to our model, hiding his well worn tennis ball in the wreath of holly and just generally sticking his nose in pretty much every picture. He even smiles for the camera…such a ham, it was impossible to do anything but laugh. And throw the tennis ball and snap as many pictures as possible before he came bounding back into the shot.
Here are a few of the great shots we managed to take without Nigel. Our theme this holiday season seems to be inspirational jewelry and love. If you like what you see…stop by our website at www.islandcowgirl.com and pick out the perfect gift for your love!

There were so many fun halloween festivities this year we’re still reminiscing…
Its a Halloween tradition to pass out candy from our flagship store front, on Main Street in Huntington Beach. All of the local business partake in this huge event that brings the community together and allows the little kiddos to come out dressed up to trick or treat!
We saw some of the cutest little tots strolling for candy. This itty bitty crew composed of snow white, the evil queen and their monkey friend was one of our absolute favorites. They were so sweet and excited.
The kids weren’t the only ones having the fun. Our next door neighbor from the salon came as a head turning ‘Marge’ from the Simpsons. It was quite the get-up! She had everyone smiling and laughing
It was another wonderful holiday spent as an Island Cowgirl family.
Every woman has a cowgirl side, whether its out there in the open or some where deep inside their heart.
Because being a cowgirl is about so much more then just riding horses, and knowing the lay of the land. It’s about the strength that comes from the soul, as tough as boot leather when times get rough. Having humility from knowing you’re just a small part of a much grander plan. It is when a woman feels a wide open space and is comfortable with where she stands.
(Pictured above is our ‘Cowgirl at Heart Necklace‘…)
The is so much inspiration to be found in the country life style, from the iconic lucky horseshoe symbol, to the classic mantras of old time cowgirls… like, “worship your wild soul“…. “always saddle your own horse” and so many more… sayings to live by and learn from!
PS. Always remember to always embrace your inner cowgirl
Horses & Halloween costumes…Who would think the two would go together…but yes they do. At least at my barn they do. Every year Huntington Beach Equestrian Center hosts its own version of a Halloween Parade with some happy kids and some reluctant but very patient costume-wearing horses.
I thought I would share with you a little glimpse of the festivities…it was a great day. Lots of laughs…a great boarders tack swap and money raised for some good horsie causes…
My favorite? I was partial to the cotton ball wearing Little Bo Peep. The Hippie Horse was a close runner up.
Next year my horse Sunny will be going in a giant pink bunny suit. Complete with bunny ears. I just needed to find 20 yards of furry pink fabric first. I am sure he will be thrilled.
