Do you need a new gorgeous gem to breathe life into your spring jewelry collection? If so, there’s no better guidepost than the Pantone Color Institute’s Spring 2012 colors list.

And be sure to check out Part I of this series for a recap of the first five colors on the Pantone Color Institute’s Spring 2012 color list! Margarita This dusty green shade is all about a soft glow — and you’ll add the same soft radiance to your look when you wear a Peridot ring or earrings . Just look for a more subtle Peridot hue that matches the pastel aspects of the Margarita shade. Sweet Lilac This fresh baby pink shade adds whimsical romance to Pantone’s Spring 2012 colors list. And there’s undoubtedly only one choice when it comes to pink gems: the pink diamond . This gorgeous fancy pink radiant cut diamond in Diamond & Estate Trust’s collection is the vision of springtime romance. Driftwood This charcoal grey neutral brings to mind the beautiful, dark luster of grey diamonds .

BHHS Alumnus Spencer Paysinger Enjoying ‘Super’ Season

February 5, 2012

Back when the 2011-12 National Football League season began in September, Spencer Paysinger probably didn’t envision playing in the Super Bowl. His goal was simply to play football. Now he’s participating in the premiere annual one-day sporting event in North America, despite starting the year as an undrafted rookie free agent. The Beverly Hills High School alumnus is an outside linebacker for the New York Giants, who take on the New England Patriots at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Sunday (kickoff at approximately 3:30 p.m. PT). The Paysinger name is a familiar one in Beverly Hills. Spencer played for the Normans under his uncle Carter, who was head football coach from 1990 to 2009. Carter turned the program over to Donald Paysinger, his younger brother and Spencer’s father, to become the BHHS vice principal and then principal. At 6-foot-2 and 241 pounds, Paysinger considered other teams—like St. Louis, Dallas, Denver and Arizona—but felt the Giants organization gave him the best opportunity to play this season. In retrospect, it was a wise decision.   The 23-year-old Paysinger, who earned Honorable Mention in the Pac-10 after making 76 tackles his senior season at the University of Oregon, has 12 tackles this season (11 solo, one assisted), including one in the Giants’ 20-17 overtime victory at San Francisco two weeks ago in the NFC Championship game. He had a season-high three tackles in New York’s 17-10 loss to Philadelphia on Nov. 20, and two tackles in both the Nov. 13 loss to San Francisco and the 29-14 win against the New York Jets on Dec. 24.  Playing wide receiver for his uncle Carter at BHHS, Spencer had 54 catches for an Ocean League-best 1,093 yards and 10 touchdowns with All-CIF first-team and league MVP honors as a senior in 2005. On defense, he had 87 tackles (53 unassisted), two sacks, two interceptions and one fumble recovery, leading the Normans to an undefeated regular season.

OT Goal Lifts BHHS Soccer

February 5, 2012

Ashley Aviram has been scoring big goals all season for the Beverly Hills High School girls varsity soccer team, so it’s no surprise that she tallied the Normans’ biggest one when it was needed the most. The junior rocketed a direct free kick over the head of Santa Monica High School goalkeeper Sarah Lipshy from 35 yards out early in the 93rd minute to propel the Normans to a 1-1 tie against the Vikings Friday night at Nickoll Field. Had the Normans lost, they would’ve had to defeat Inglewood and archrival Culver City to clinch their first league crown since joining the Ocean League in 2004. Now, they need only to tie one of their final two games to capture the title outright. “I normally take the free kicks from there and I was just trying to put it on frame,” Aviram said of her team-best 22nd goal. “I was very upset that we were losing. Of course we wanted to win, but we knew a tie would be sufficient.” It was perhaps one of the most satisfying games coach Scott Franks has experienced with the Normans—either as a player or coach. He was a center midfielder for boys coach Steve Rappaport from 1992-96 and has piloted the girls program for nine years. What made it all the more rewarding is that Aviram’s goal was almost identical to the overtime goal she scored to beat the Vikings on their own field earlier in the season. “She’s so clutch,” Franks said of Aviram, who is four goals shy of the school single-season record held by Emily Litvak and just eight away from Litvak’s career scoring record of 55 goals. “We knew a tied would work in our favor so we took a more conservative approach to the game. But when they scored we had to go into attack mode and we moved [Aviram] up to the front from stopper. She couldn’t have placed it any better.” Santa Monica broke the scoreless tie in the 83rd minute with a redirection by striker Brenda Torres-Matos off a high corner kick from Kristen Vasquez. However, it only made the Normans more determined to find the back of the net themselves. Beverly Hills’ senior goalkeeper Ida Trevino entered the game having allowed just one goal in league play and rose to the challenge once again Friday, making 17 saves while constantly communicating with her defenders. By the time the final whistle blew she had almost no voice left to cheer. “My heart was pounding the whole game. I was yelling the whole time,” Trevino said. ”We knew the situation going into it, how important it was not to lose. I’m overall really calm but when we got behind I knew we needed to score. I was trying to stay really positive.”   Franks recognized that Trevino’s experience showed in the final minutes. “She was All-League last year, she will be again this year and she was on top of her game tonight,” he said. “To have the presence of mind to trap the ball with her chest and waste 30 seconds on the clock shows how sharp she is and how aware she is of the situation.” BHHS wraps up the regular season at home Tuesday against Inglewood (a team the Normans routed 7-0 in their first meeting) and then Thursday at archrival Culver City, which lost 1-0 on a goal by Beverly Hills’ Tiffany Moore in their first encounter.   “This is the pinnacle because I have so much respect for [Samohi] and there’s nothing I wanted more this season than to win league,” Franks said. “We started the season 3-4, we had a lot of egos and we had some injuries. To overcome it all and be where we are now, I couldn’t be more proud. The girls did what they had to do.” MATCH STATISTICS  Goals: Santa Monica—Brenda Torres-Matos, 83rd minute. Beverly Hills—Ashley Aviram, 93rd minute. Saves: Santa Monica—11, Sarah Lipshy. Beverly Hills—12, Ida Trevino. Records:  Santa Monica 10-5-3 overall, 5-2-1 league; Beverly Hills 12-5-3, 7-0-1.
