Magnificent Monday: Meryl Streep

Magnificent Monday

A woman of almost regal beauty, she’s been delighting audiences with her stage performances since she was in high school. For a long time she didn’t really take her movie career very seriously, preferring instead to stick with the theater. Streep’s focus changed after she saw Taxi Driver & was amazed by De Niro’s acting prowess. Much like many of the women I honor on Mondays, Meryl is a philanthropist as she champions numerous charities & causes (far too many to go into any real detail). There are so many things to admire about this amazing woman.

Throughout her many appearances, aside from performances, I have noticed that she seems particularly fond of embellished hoops & bold necklaces.  While I haven’t tried to precisely clone her style I have found several treasures that are reminiscent of her fashion sense. Today’s wishlist comes from Tidebuy & as you may or may not recall, whenever I do listing from this shop I always list full price, as everything is always on sale there, but the discount varies. Very few of these items are very expensive, but for those few that are, you are very unlikely to pay more than $10 for any of them. So go on & get your accessories on 😉

Fantastical Friday: Spring is Here!

Fantastical Friday

Finally, spring has sprung, though it may still take a month or so for the weather to stop having random bursts of wintry temper tantrums. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited by the wheel’s return to warmer times & I thought it was time to celebrate with a sweet jewelry wishlist. All items in today’s list were found at Target & while I selected one piece based on color alone, all of the others have something else spring-ish going for them, lol. I hope you are all enjoying the seasonal shift & this themed selection of lovelies you can order at any time, though 1 or 2 of them are limited release so “anytime” is probably not that accurate, LOL.

Spring is Here1) Women’s Silver Plated Rose Quartz Genuine Stone Stationed Necklace ($14.99)
2) Silver Plated Flower Freshwater Pearl and Crystal Pendant ($16.99)
3) Silver Plated Cubic Zirconia Dragonfly Pendant Necklace ($16.99)

Magnificent Monday: Shakira

Magnificent Monday

This stylish icon has been around for a while, but how much do you really know about her? She comes from a large family with 8 older siblings, while they do come from her father’s previous marriage I loath to use the term “half sibling” (I too come from a large family & while we do not all share the same father, they are wholly my siblings). An early starter, she wrote her first poem at the age of 4, showing herself to be a prodigy. Shakira’s career began when she was an early teen, 2 albums (Magia & Peligro) were released during that time, but have since been (using comic book terminology here) retconned out of her current cannon. She has gone on to become a huge international success, with just one example, her song Hips Don’t Lie hit number 1 status in 55 countries! Her beauty, talent & generosity are really the stuff of legend. Giving to numerous charities that cover a wide variety of causes, her chief crusade centers on the well being & future of children & she is the founder of Pies Descalzos (which works with schools to improve conditions, scholastics, nutrition & community support for the children of Colombia).

Her style & presentation is glamorous, though often spartan where jewelry is concerned. She does enjoy her dangle earrings, with occasional other bits, like rings & bracelets & sporadic statement pieces. Naturally, I took some inspiration from her fashion sense & found some jewelry picks that are reminiscent of her style without outright copying it. This time I found my wishlist at Walmart & I believe they have some rather lovely treasures at this time. ❤

3) Pori Jewelers Sterling Silver Drop Earrings ($10.76)

Magnificent Monday: Sheryl Crow

Magnificent Monday

Very few haven’t heard of this talented singer, song writer, but did you know that she has also been an elementary music teacher? Can you imagine growing up to realize that your music teacher went on to become a star in the industry? She hit the scene in ’93 & since has gone on to make hits in a variety of genres, she’s done pop, rock, folk, blues & country. She is also a breast cancer survivor & has regular checkups relating to a diagnosis of meningioma (which is benign, but must be monitored). Since she has become rather outspoken about cancer, in addition to her numerous other charity works with a wide array of causes. Sheryl is also a proud & devoted mother, having adopted 2 sons (whose birthdays are practically shared, being 3 years and a single day apart, lol).

Her style runs from practical to flamboyant, but is always charming. It seems pretty rare (perhaps even never) to see her wearing a necklace, but she does seem to enjoy earrings, bracelets & rings. While only a few of the items I found for today’s wishlist remind me more directly of her style, I just had a little fun with the three main jewelry types she frequently wears. Everything in today’s collection was found on Walmart.com & some may be on clearance so I expect there to be limited numbers.

2) Steel Art Stainless Steel Rose Ring ($10)
3) 18kt White Gold-Tone Heart Ring ($10.79)

Fantastical Friday: Daydreaming Again

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Okay, so I’m kind of an escapist as I enjoy distracting myself from the general unpleasantness of certain facets of life (it’s how I keep stress from overwhelming me). Window shopping is one such outlet & recently I was browsing the selection at Tidebuy, which also ignited a craving for the return of spring. This lovely light dress just kind of stood out, almost begging to be worked into an outfit (I know, last week was an ensemble too, but it’s my blog & what I was inspired to do, so that’s what I’m doing, lol). When I post about this site I always use the full price, because while things are always on sale the exact percentage off varies a lot. For those of us who are more frugal (myself included) please don’t have sticker shock about the boots, while they are a tad more expensive than I would like the sale I was looking at while composing this post had them listed a bit less than $30, so don’t fret, if you like them as much as I do it is very unlikely you will have to fork over anything near their full cost. We all need a bit of whimsy in our lives & sometimes that can be found in something as simple as a trip to the park, or grilling out back with the family, whit this collection would be perfect for. 😉 I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, filled with the comforts of family & good weather. ❤

Magnificent Monday: Vanity

Magnificent Monday

Denise Katrina Matthews was another great lost to the infamous 2016, she was a singer, songwriter, dancer, actress & model. Her stage name came from the group she was in, Vanity 6, but as is the case with some, the rockstar life lead her into the world of drugs. As a result of her profound addiction & an overdose, she went into renal failure in the mid ’90s. Having survived that near death experience she cleaned up her act & shed her Vanity persona to become an Evangelist. I have to respect anyone who managed to pull themselves from the brink with their faith & stay true to that path until the end.

Though she’s been out of the limelight for quite a while, the period of time in which she was performing is where I draw chief inspiration, as that was how I was influenced by her at a young age. I was a little disappointed with some of the places I searched with a mind for this wishlist, I did eventually find a few lovelies that remind me of her style. Each item in today’s selections were found at Amazon.com, where you can find almost anything you’re looking for. 😉

Fantastical Friday: Wistful Inspiration

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Thought I would do an outfit post, can’t really recall how long ago I did one, lol. It’s not a LARP or cosplay outfit either, but nice for lounging about & workable for a date night that’s more of a simple affair. I look forward to the temperatures stabilizing & having more comfortable weather, so with this longing in mind I found this ensemble at Styles for Less. I honestly hope your weather isn’t flipflopping like my local situation, nature just can’t seem to decide if it’s winter, spring, or summer. :/ Anyway, stay warm, lots of love ❤
