Violet Gum Drop Bestie Buds PB&J Best Friends Necklace



How adorable are these best friend necklaces? Best friends necklaces have come a long way from little hearts that were popular back in the day. These days fun bestie necklaces are available to showcase just how great you and your bff go together! I recently got this handmade Peanut Butter and Jelly Best Friends Necklace for me and my best friend Ashley. The necklace comes in a set, one necklace features a large Peanut Butter sandwich half and a little Jelly half, while the other necklace comes with a large Jelly half and a small Peanut Butter half. Cute, right? You and your bff go together like PB&J, so your necklaces might as well too! These pendants are hand made from polymer clay, they're pretty sturdy, totally adorable, and super affordable at only $19.95 for the set! They also have other BFF sets like...

Miss Fashion beauty's 700 followers!

Holly is celebrating 700 followers with an awesome giveaway!

Erica Anenberg Love is Blind Ring

Erica Anenberg creates beautiful jewelry utilizing fun and unique designs with classic mediums like gold and silver.  Fashionistas and celebs alike both fall in love with her pieces. Her collection of earrings, bracelets, rings and necklaces have been seen on Katy Perry, Pink, and more. I like her collection of braille rings, and recently got the Love is Blind Braille Ring. It comes in either Silver (pictured above) or Gold (which I got, pictured below) and features a Love Is Blind inscription on the inner band and then spells it out in Braille on the outside of the band. Beautiful and unique!


The ring also comes with a pretty gold metallic drawstring bag for storage. I think Braille is really pretty to look at even though I don't know how to read it, so when I saw the combination of English written paired with the Braille detail I was smitten with this ring. The gold is really pretty and you can clearly read the inner inscription, though while the ring is being worn only the braille shows which I think is cute because it can be felt (and read by those who read Braille).

I also really like these other Erica Anenberg pieces:

Foxy Earrings

Heart Bracelet

French Kiss Twosome Ring

Jewelry Showcase: Stuart Breidenstein Design



Have you heard of Stuart Breidenstein? If not, you should have. Stuart runs Breidenstein Design, which is a collective of his unique and fun jewelry designs. Stuart uses mediums like recycled wood, plastics, resin and more to create unique pieces that are both beautiful and modern. Stuart even has his own shop in Oregon, Stuart's of Bend, where his line is sold. His jewelry pieces are like mini works of art, in my opinion. Each piece is handmade and so brilliantly crafted and one of a kind as each piece will have unique properties. Stuart has a collection of jewelry called Go Robot that fuses art, science, and music in each stylish piece. I got the Mochi Earrings and they are seriously so pretty that they have become my new favorite pair of earrings.  Stuart uses recycle cocobolo wood as the base of the earring, resin for the beautiful blue sphere and sections of manzanita twigs as the inner accents. I've been learning to surf lately, and so I'm obsessed with the pretty thin wooden earrings and the bright blue of the resin, they also remind me of a vintage surfboard.

Ready to wear!
How awesome are these?! LOVE them. The colors look fabulous together, and I already got compliments my first day wearing these out and about. I love the natural feel of the wood and the smooth texture of the resin and the attention to detail of the beautifully sculpted design. The Mochi Earrings are only $48, which is an insanely affordable price for a piece that is essentially art for the ears.

Here are a few of the other Breidenstein Design pieces that I have my eye on:

Nerd Belt! Yes, it's made with real Nerds candy!
Barbarella Ring made of chunky resin
Dangling Urbanites Earrings made of sterling silver
You can check out Stuart's website Breidenstein Design to see more of his work, or shop online for his jewelry. You can also like him on Facebook, and if you live in the Bend Oregon area you can check out his brick and mortar store.

Pretty awesome news!

Okay so I didn't mention anything on my blog about this, I wanted it to be a surprise...but months ago, the awesome brand Cliche Cosmetics agreed to let me design my own color available for purchase!!!!

I'm so excited to have my own shade! It's been a fun process, and now the product is ready to be launched!

So I wanted to give a HUGE thank you to Cliche Cosmetics for letting me design my own color! I chose a wearable shade of bright pink, and I named it after me, haha! It's sheer but buildable. I wanted to design a color that anybody could wear, whether you're a fan of brights or not. It's a light wash of pink with one layer, but build-able to a brighter pink. It's also a great top coat to any hot pink lipstick! I usually use my favorite hot pink lip liner (Make Up For Ever 16C Aqua Lips lip liner) and then top it with some "Ashley" gloss and I'm good to go! :)

Here it is!!!

Here it is!!!


I'm going to do a swatch post probably by the end of the weekend. I just wanted to share this with everyone!

Thank you so much, Cliche Cosmetics! Check out the awesome brand that made this possible!

Current Jewelry Obsession: Ghost & Lola





I'm currently crushing on this really awesome jewelry brand from Australia called Ghost & Lola, I've been a fan of their collections for awhile now and their unique jewelry is on my current wishlist of accessories to own. Here are a few pieces of jewelry from their current collection. One of my fav pieces from the S/S 2011 collection is the The Addiction necklace, pictured above, it features a beautiful silver bird, studded cones, and various other metal charms.


The Luminous ring pictured above is another favorite of mine. I love chunky jewelry, and this cute ring features a large natural stone set upon a sterling silver etched ring band. Gorgeous! I also really like their earrings, the Constance earrings, pictured below are really feminine and pretty featuring pink glass and wooden beads with vintage little roses and filigree in these drop earrings. I love how G&L incorporated vintage designs into the modern jewelry, very pretty and unique.



You can check out the entire collection of Ghost & Lola jewelry at Ghostlola.com.au!
