If you have a birthday, anniversary or possible engagement coming up you need to tell your significant other about! I mean, I would love a diamond eternity ring for my birthday - wouldn't you? Anjolee has been a leading manufacturer of fine jewelry since 1977. They have an amazing collection of wedding and anniversary rings, diamond bracelets, necklaces and earrings.

The great thing is all of the pieces on can be customized according to preference of metal type, diamond size, diamond quality and size! That way you can get exactly what you want according to your taste and budget. It's really easy to change your preferences and the price automatically updates depending on what you choose. (It was actually kind of fun to play around with the customization calculator and watch the price change...haha). Anjolee also has a 30-Day money back guarantee and free shipping!

Anjolee kindly sent me this pair of stud earrings to sample (in silver and high quality CZ's).  I can only imagine how sparkly the diamond version would be! I wear statement earrings more often but sometimes it's nice to wear classic studs.  And I think these earrings compliment my dot print pants nicely!

I hope you all have a GOOD FRIDAY! Is it really Easter already? Well, I'm looking forward to the long weekend and eating some peanut butter eggs!  My husband has off so hopefully he can help my set up more of the apartment - aka hang pictures and shelves for me ;-).

So yesterday was not the best day...I LOST my Social Security Card and got a parking ticket.  It really stinks because I'm sure I didn't just misplace it. It was in my back pocket one second and then gone. I think it fell on the ground. I just have to hope no one sleazy finds it and steals my identity :-/ And I got the parking ticket when I was looking for my card. Sad day.

But at least I have this cute Satin Flower clip to make me happy! Anna-Rebekah and her sister, Eleah,  recently launched their Etsy shop, Pearl Blossom Boutique.  They create floral fabric jewelry and accessories.  Each flower is unique and made to order.  I absolutely LOVE my Satin Flower Hair Clip in champagne.  It is really well made and can be worn as a hair clip or pin! I love the seed beads in the center and the edging around the petals.  It has an alligator clip for your hair and a pin on the back to easily wear it in your hair or on your shirt.  I also love the way it can be worn on a scarf! Their flower clips come in different styles, sizes and colors so you can be sure to find something to fit your style.  

And the good news is Pearl Blossom Boutique is generous enough to give one of these cute hair clip/pins away to one lucky reader! The winner will get the medium sized Classic Flower in the color of their choice! Pick from Lyons Blue, Aqua Blue, Sunshine Yellow, Mocha, Champagne, Deep Red or Ivory!

Looking for cute socks to wear with your sneakers, flats or even heels? Kushyfoot has some great new affordable options! 
Kushyfoot's Spring 2014 line includes more than 20 super cute fashion foot covers!  Lipton Publicity kindly sent me a couple of them to review and share with you guys.

(Shiny Dot Foot Covers - Silver, Black and Nude)
It's like lingerie for your feet! While these foot covers look great by themselves, they also work really well with regular flats.  They are ultra low cut and also have foot cushions for extra comfort.  

(Extreme Low Cut Lace Foot Covers - in Nude and Black)
I think these might be my favorite pair.  They are EXTREME low cut with a foot cushion and heel guard.  They basically only cover your toes and heel so you won't be able to see them in your heels or low sided flats.  

(Sport Cotton Foot Cover - Pink, Black, White)
I usually don't think much about the socks I wear in my sneakers.  But these Sport Foot Covers have a ventilated mesh top, arch support and stay-put heel.  Which makes these perfect work out socks! Plus they are hot pink! 

(Sheer Anklet - Nude and Black)
This was my least favorite pair.  The Sheer Anklet didn't really work for me.  I get the idea and think they would look cute with a pair of heels and and skirt or dress for a retro feel.  But they didn't stay up for me (although, I have super skinny ankles so it's probably my fault!).  I also think I would like them better in black.  The zig zag pattern on the bottom is supposed to "massage" your feet but I couldn't really feel it. 

Overall, I really liked the foot covers.  I don't normally think about wearing socks with my flats or heels because I'm afraid of them showing.  But these Kushyfoot covers are super low and didn't show in any of my shoes.  Plus the cushions add a little extra padding which is nice.  

There are a lot more styles and colors to choose from with some styles available in Large size (9-12)!

One reader asked if I wore these foot covers all day and if they stayed on my feet without sliding off.  I only wore them around my apartment with shoes so I can't vouch if they stay on all day.  However, they did not slip off my feet at all while I had them on. The Extreme Low Cut Lace Foot Covers and the Sport Socks are the only pairs that have the heel cushion (a rubber zig zag pattern similar to the bottom of anti slip socks).  I think these really helped keep the socks on.  I have the Regular size which fits sizes 5-9 and I'm a size 9 so they were also pretty snug on my feet.  If you are worried about blisters on your heels these foot covers are really low cut so they might not cover enough of your heel to prevent blisters.  

*Lipton Publicity sent me these foot covers free of charge but all opinions are my own!

I'm back! Sorry for the absence last week.  I didn't realize how long packing/moving/unpacking would take! But I'm happy to say we're out of our 1 bedroom apartment with noisy neighbors and in a 2 bed, 2 1/2 bath townhouse! No neighbors above or below, thank goodness.  Now I just have to figure out what to do with all these bathrooms!  We still don't have everything put away - and we still need a fridge! But it's getting there.  

I'm happy to be back posting though.  I really missed it even though I was just gone a week! And I'm excited to show you guys this crop top.  It was kind of an unexpected purchase for me.  But I just loved the floral print and the sheer panels.  I wasn't even sure I had anything to wear with it but I bought it anyway.  It's kind of boxy, but it drapes nicely.  I had originally planned to wear it with a bodycon pencil skirt but then thought it might look nice layered over a button up.  I think this is a nice way to wear crop tops if you don't feel like showing off your midsection. 

On a side note, these might be the last outfit photos from this location (aka my old apartment).  My new place doesn't have as nicely manicured sidewalks...haha.
