Fantastical Friday: My Mommy

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

This past Sunday was Mother’s Day, which I’m sure you all knew & I thought it might be nice to share with you what I got for my mommy this year. I have nothing but respect, admiration & love for my mother. Growing up we were always been poor & I mostly remember good times, we never went hungry & we were all pretty happy. I even remember getting a lot more at Christmas time than I see my youngest sister, nieces & nephews getting (not sure why or how it worked out that way, but somehow that is the case). Mom was mostly alone to raise us & there are 7 of us, so you can imagine how challenging it must have been for her. My mother is amazing, always a loving, supportive figure, who can give you a swift kick in the pants when you need it most. So I thought I would get her something she is likely to use, unlike last year’s disaster (I got her a handbag, but it so wasn’t her style, I mean it looked fine, but the arrangement of pockets just doesn’t work for her) & this year I got her a cross. I found this little pretty at Walmart.

The chain wasn’t long enough to suit her though, so I ended up ordering a longer chain, which came in a few days after Mother’s Day. This gift went over very well, so I actually managed to get her special day right this year, LOL. I hope you succeeded at making your mom feel special this year as well. 😉

Watermelon Wednesday: Layered Accent

Watermelon Wednesday

A good necklace can completely change the neckline of a blouse or it can make a lovely accent. It’s no secret that I love jewelry, cheap or fine, it doesn’t matter as long as the bauble fits into my sense of style (it also helps if it can be readily coordinated with my existing wardrobe & pieces). Layering necklaces are wonderful for the versatility they possess, but it’s also nice to have beautiful pieces that layer themselves for those times when I don’t want to devote my whole processor to figuring out what works best with my other selections. It might sometimes seem like lazy style, but many of these treasures are really amazing & should not be counted out. Today’s piece caught my eye as I wandered about the pages of Target & it’s on clearance, which means it won’t be around very much longer. 😉

A Few Favorite Necklaces

Ah the necklace, it’s a jewelry box staple. They help to enable our self-expression through the conduit of fashion. They can also dress up an otherwise boring neckline, or add a seasonal element. Some are simple, others are very complex, it can be a difficult process to select the right one for the right event, occasion, or ensemble.

I’ve selected 9 of my favorite necklaces from Jolly Chic’s current collection to share with you. I must say that it was a very difficult task to narrow down my selections to just 9, lol.

Few Fave Necklaces 1) Hexagonal Geometry Pearl Pendant Short Necklace For Women ($2.99)
2) Elegant Alloy Cut Out Pendant Necklace ($2.99)
3) Sweet Flower Pendant Womens Elegant Necklace ($3.99)
