We're Making Self Love Pinky Rings More Accessible With Afterpay

Self love is priceless. It’s one of the few things that is accessible to anyone, and it has always been a priority of ours to make our Self Love Pinky Ring equally as accessible. We understand that the Self Love Pinky Ring is a big investment, and the last thing we want is for you to purchase something you can't afford all at once. For that reason, we've incorporated afterpay as a payment option on our website, which allows you to pay for your purchase in 4 equal installments every 2 weeks with no interest. How is afterpay able to do that?...

The Story Behind the Self Love Pinky Ring Self Care Break and Relaunch

After a six-month, self care break, the Self Love Pinky Ring is back. And so am I. I’m here to share the backstory, and also to share why this time is different.  Six months ago, I had one of the best sales months in Fred and Far’s history. You might ask yourself, “Who would walk away from that? Who would say no to people who want to buy something from you?” That would be me, Melody Godfred, your founder. Even though the business was flourishing, I was breaking. I had recently had my third child, dealt with another health scare,...

A Message from our Founder

Dearest tribe, Last night as I looked up at the blood moon lunar eclipse, I found the certainty I've been searching for. Over the last year, I've started asking myself the questions I ask of all of you: am I being true to my most authentic self? Am I spending my time cultivating joy? Am I caring for myself?  When I started working on Fred and Far and The Self Love Pinky Ring in 2015, I was in a very different place. I didn't even know to ask myself these questions. Putting on my pinky ring, and making myself a...

Celebrity Matchmaker and Alessandra Conti Shares Her Perspective On Why Self Love is Key to a Successful Relationship

Before diving into the questions, tell us a little bit about your background and how you came to be a matchmaker! I always refer to myself as a "sandbox matchmaker" because I have been setting up my friends since before it was socially acceptable!  My sister - co-founder of Matchmakers In The City - and I grew up in a small town where there was very little to do, so we would rent out venues and throw parties and invite all of the cute boys from neighboring high schools and all of our fabulous girlfriends. We were always little social butterflies, and would...
