Glitter Here, There, and Everywhere
If you ask me, a girl can never have too many fashion accessories. The right accessories can add flair, fun, and the finishing touches to any outfit. My personal style motto is “give me all the sparkly things”! I have a slight obsession with necklaces, purses and everything in between. Here is a list of my personal top 5 accessories.
1. Brandy Bell Design Leather Earrings – I love supporting small business owners and Brandy Bell can take ALL MY MONEY! These handcrafted lightweight leather earrings are to die for amazing. They are an awesome addition to any outfit AND are a fun way to sneak some pattern or a pop of color into your outfit. Her website is easy to navigate and she has tons of styles and selection.
2.Mantra Band – My sister gave me a rose gold mantra band as a gift and I immediately fell in LOVE. I am a sucker for anything rose gold but this bracelet has a special meaning. Engraved across the top is the mantra, “Let Your Light Shine”. I say this all the time and I have a constant reminder now that I have found my sparkle, it is my job to let it shine.
3.My Wedding Rings – My engagement ring and wedding band obviously have special meaning for me. I love wearing them for several reasons…um hello, diamonds are the ultimate glitter. For well over a year I couldn’t even wear my rings. As my weight ballooned the rings became uncomfortable and eventually just didn’t fit. In August, when I vowed to take my life back, I made a pact with myself that I would join Weight Watchers and my first goal was to get these rings to fit. After 5 months of persistence and perseverance my rings are back on my finger where they belong. These rings signify my love story and a commitment to my husband. They have now also become an anchor for my weight loss journey and a reminder that I can do hard things.
4.Kate Spade Rose Gold Glitter Tote – My fabulous sister, Jennifer, really went all out with gifts this year when she gave me this AMAZING Kate Spade glitter tote bag. Seriously, I almost DIED when I opened it. I love this tote for the obvious reasons…GLITTER but, also because it’s a great catch all for days I needed a bigger bag to carry snacks, my water, a sweater, etc. I put my small clutch inside the tote for easy access.
A tiara – Lastly, every girl needs a tiara, no matter how old she is. When I was a kindergarten teacher, I use to wear tutus and tiaras to work and my inner 5 year old LOVED it. Now that I work from home, I continue to wear my tiara on Tuesdays. Seriously, every girl needs to be a little flashy and over the top once in a while. The quickest way to snap out of a funk is to put on your tiara and remind yourself that you were meant to sparkle…after all, you are a princess. So stop what you are doing and get yourself to your nearest accessory store and pick yourself up a tiara, you won’t regret it.
What is on your list of must have accessories? I realize I didn’t even talk about shoes but that is a whole other blog post…TRUST. You can catch me and my tiara LIVE every Tuesday on Facebook, hop on over and say hello!
With glitter and gratitude,
