Arm candy.


If I could buy one thing the rest of my life, it would be bracelets. Any kind - cuffs, bangles, big, small, funky, unique, dainty, chunky, colorful, gold, silver... you get the picture. I just LOVE them! I feel they can make an outfit go from plain to stunning in no time flat! As I've mentioned on here before, my love of bracelets comes from my mom. Ever since I can remember, she has worn 3 big silver cuffs of varying designs on her wrist. She got them on a trip to Santa Fe when she and my dad were newly married. Before little ol' me :) They are sterling silver and very intricately designed.  I've rarely seen her without them. She mixes and matches them with everything - both casual and dressed up. She gets stopped everywhere we go, and I love the big, bold look it gives. Since I love being like my mom, it's no surprise I've picked up on her love of arm candy! Here are a couple stunners I came across today...

On another note, I am about to hit 100 followers!!!!! 100!!!!!!! First of all, to say I am excited is an understatement. I would use way more exclamation marks, but that would be dorky. I remember the night I started this blog. I ignored my little honey for days, getting this up and running. He was my very first follower :) I was so nervous about how my little blog was going to be accepted in the blog world. I had no idea it would grow this fast. So please let me tell you... I am thankful and grateful for each person that has come to the blog, read my posts, and commented. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you!!! It truly means so much to me, and I hope you continue to visit!

So to celebrate when I hit 100 followers, I am doing a special give away! It will be something great and something that I love...or several things I love. I haven't really decided yet, but it will be good. I promise! Much love! xx

  14. I agree that these would make any outfit AMAZING! Yes, you should definitely consider Kauai as a honeymoon spot! That's where we went on our honeymoon and LOVED it! It's so beautiful and relaxing (which is exactly what we needed after all the wedding planning stress). Can't wait to hear more about your wedding plans and your honeymoon! Keep us posted.
