*Special Thanks to BoutiqueLovin for sending me this necklace at a discounted price*
Amethyst promotes healing, bringing calm, peace, balance and patience to the body. This is perfect for me especially since my fast pace summer classes have gotten me into a bit of a tizzy. This combined with a full time job and the extreme heat I really need some of that healing right about now. So when offered to purchase at a discounted price I immediately said yes.
The possible healing isn’t the only reason I wear the necklace, the amethyst gemstone color pops so any drab office clothes I wear, this gives it a bit of life. I am really trying to toss out the blacks, grays and whites that seem to dominate my wardrobe and easiest way to start are by wearing colorful accessories.
The pendant is handmade, with wire wrapped around the stone, so your focal point is on the stone itself. No extra foufou here. The actual necklace that comes with the pendant is really short and the quality is not so good. Plus it catches on any loose hair or threads so I suggest you replace it as soon as possible if you can.
Boutiquelovin sells other Gemstones and styles too! In fact I have my eye on the Rose Gold Quarts pendant as well, as that one helps open your chakra for your heart to accept love. Even if you don’t believe in gemstones being used for healing, There’s nothing stopping you from just wanting to wear pretty things. The gemstone is lightweight, you almost don’t know your wearing it.

Have you purchased any pretty gemstones lately?
Yay we’re about halfway there (oooh livin’ on a prayer can’t resist Bon Jovi). I am so excited! If you like to check out the other posts heres ABC, DEF, GHI.
J is for… Jewelry
I’m a Jewelry Fanatic. Jewelry is such an amazing way to express yourself without putting it all out there. It’s also great when someone spots it a compliments you. Jewelry I’ve learned is a great ice breaker when you want to talk to another girl. Which is great for me when I really want to have a conversation but I don’t know how to start it.
K is for… Kindness
I’ve been trying to be kinder, only because well most of the time I’m not. I have this really mean side that comes out a lot. It’s like I’m possessed. I know how to be really cruel, but I am trying to change because I really want to.
L is for… Lessons
I am not just talking about school. I’ve had a lot of stuff happen in my (almost) 30 years and each day I don’t forget it. It’s hard to look back on most of it since it was very negative and bad but at least I can’t look back and think ‘ I survived’. It also a big part of me and how it made me develop as the person I am today. I look back and can know what not to do, who not to love. See warning signs, know how to treat my children. It’s a huge lesson that I learned even if it was the hard way.
Hoped you liked JKL, Next it will be MNO
I am a huge science and chemistry nerd, I even contemplated Chemistry as my major for college. So seeing this necklace made me so excited. Another reason I wanted this necklace is because I suffer from depression. I have to take medication everyday just to feel normal.
It runs in my family so I knew there was a chance I could experience depression. When Rosa Vila Boutique offered me a chance to work with them I immediately zeroed in on this necklace. This necklace helps me to remind myself to be positive and think of happier Serotonin filled times.
The only thing I find a fault in was the chain length I wish it was a inch or so longer.

I have always had a bit of a soft spot for hearts and necklaces. I’ve been in such a Necklace mood lately, it’s so silly that It’s been all I want to wear recently. Earrings just have been a bother and Bracelets get caught in my long sleeves (The AC is always cold at work). Rings have just been Meh, but I’ve been in love with necklaces. This necklace is Sterling Silver with Swarovski Crystal (I’m on a budget do you think I can afford diamonds?). While the necklace is low price (under $20) It certainly doesn’t feel cheap. The pendant has some heft to it, plus it makes me feel romantic and with my anniversary here I should get myself into that mood. The chain itself isn’t too great, and I will eventually replace it later.

So in hopes of trying to be more positive and Look at what I have rather than what I want or has lost, I’ve decided to start doing Five Friday Favorites. Hopefully it will let me look at what I have and be able to be happier and content with everything. Will I do this every friday? Maybe, maybe not. I’m trying not to micromanage my life as much!
My Wheaten sweatshirt. Tesla is a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier mix. It’s not a really big breed as most people actually have never heard of it so imagine how excited I am to find a sweatshirt that can represent where she is in my life
So guys, I’m a horrible person. I lost my wedding ring. I fell horrible and I have not been able to find it. I went insane looking around my house and pretty much went into a depressed despair when I could not locate it. Not having my wedding ring on my finger feels so foreign and strange. I’ve gotten so used to having my gorgeous ring on my finger that without it… I finally broke down and got a bridal set. Having something on my finger that helps show how much love my husband I am have for each other has really increased my mood.
Did you know I’ve never owned a casual tennis shoe. All my tennis shoes are for running, weightlifting or playing tennis. Honestly I never knew that casual sneakers exsisted (I know sounds like I have been living under a rock). I love these shoes! They are oh so comfortable, they are stylish and I feel cool wearing them. Plus I love the hightops!
I love Micellar water. It’s helped keep my face refreshed and hydrated with the summer heat, I don’t know how I went so long without using it! It cleans make up off my face, while cleansing and keeping my face looking great. I seriously cannot stop boasting about this!
Last but not least my NYX Wonder stick. I’ve been trying my hand at contouring and highlighting, while I am not the best at it and still learning the tricks this is so easy to use. The ease of which I can use the wonderstick helps with my less then knowledgeable skills in this area. I’m still debating if I want to do a in depth review. Let me know if you want and I will definitely whip one up for you all.
What are you Five Friday Favorites?
Hey I bring to you all another ETOD. These are some of my most fave earrings I have. Hand cut and just full out fun. These wooden earrings are the perfect storm.
Definitely check out Unpossiblecuts They have such cute earrings and necklaces.
I really love wearing jewelry. Sometimes it’s something casual like a pair of studs or maybe something flashy like a diamond bracelet.
Today I bring you Cupid’s Arrow Heart Pendant. I’ve always had a special place for hearts, whether it’s a atomically correct heart of one like these, I love them.
I really like this pendant, although it’s a bit big for my taste I love the Swarovski Crystal the color is gorgeous and I actually really love the design on the back.

So it’s been such a long time since I’ve done a Earring of the day, I used to love wearing earrings yet some reason I’ve just stopped.
Here I am trying to get back into the groove of things.
Here are my new earrings, they are green T-rex. I guess because of my birthday I’ve been on a bit of a funny kid mood. Maybe I’m trying to feel younger? Relive my Childhood? Whatever the reason I can say that I like these earrings alot. I’m a huge fan of studs, they are just easier to wear, they don’t catch on things, they don’t feel heavy and weigh my ears down.
The one things I don’t like is that they have rubber backings, when I thought they had metal backs. Oh well, it’s nothing that will make me lose my cool.
Another reason I love these earrings is that they are very fun and casual. I don’t have to wait for a special occasion, jeans and a Tee are great.

Recently I was contacted by a company called Anjolee they are an online diamond jewelry company that specializes in jewelry customization. After taking a gander through the website I jumped at the opportunity. Honestly I love Jewelry whether expensive, or a plastic ring from the $25 cent machines I will wear anything as long as it’s fun.
After browsing the selections available, I was stuck between multiple options (It was all so pretty!) I finally decided on the Day to Night Diamond Pendant, Since customization is an option I decided to go with Garnet center, I don’t have any jewelry with a Garnet stone so this was exciting. The shipping was extremely quick and easy, I received the notification on Tuesday and Received the package on Wednesday.
Each diamond jewelry comes with a free Anjolee certificate of Authenticity, you also have an option of receiving a IGI appraisal certificate but that is at an extra cost. There are multiple ways you can customize each jewelry pieces. For the Day to Night Pendant you can customize the Metal Type, Total Carat weight, the diamond quality and the chain length. I went for the standard chain length of 18 inches, keep in mind that when a change is made in customization so does the price.
The Pendant was a bit smaller than I expected, but that’s my fault since apparently I lack the concept of size and the size is stated on the website when purchasing the product. The smaller size was actually a good thing it made the pendant stand out without looking gaudy or over the top. The pendant is versatile and can be worn with a t-shirt and jeans or a little black dress. The chain seemed a little flimsy at first but when wearing it, it was surprisingly sturdy. I had trouble clasping the necklace together, but I have that problem with most jewelry, what is up with every necklace having such a small clasp?
I received so many compliments when wearing the Day to Night Pendant to work it was a bit overwhelming to be honest. I’ll definitely be taking another look at the website and maybe ordering myself the matching Day to Night Diamond Earrings or dropping some anniversary hints to my husband about a Diamond eternity ring.
