Here is my newest Etsy acquisition. I love jewelry that tells a story, or that is claiming to have some magical power. Its not that I fully believe it, but its nice to know there is more to your necklace then just being bought at Forever21 for 4.80. I just received this quartz crystal necklace with gold plating and a long chain and I love it! There are all sorts of stories behind crystal necklaces and I can't wait to dig in and learn about them all. This necklace was purchased at Babetteworld for $39.00 with shipping (to Canada) and she shipped it practically the next day. She makes them all to order, so every single one is unique. Here it is:

Fountain of Youth.

So, the other day while browsing the fashion section of my local bookstore I stumbled upon this wonderful book. Well, its kind of a book. It's hard to explain actually. It was in the fashion section, so I know it wasn't for children. It is a fashion/coloring book. It shows creations from fashion designers and asks you to draw your own creations! It's amazing. Here are some excerpts.

Pretty Faces.

I don't know about you, but when I pick out a magazine it's not based on the covergirl. Or at least, not consciously. I have my certain favorites, that I buy regardless of the person on the cover. Little did I know, choosing a covergirl is a big business. Today, I stumbled upon these figures. Just by putting Jennifest Aniston on Harpers Bazaar business went up 22%, the most in 7 years! Here are some of the other figures i found, apparently putting Halle Berry on the cover is not a wise business choice! What do you think?

Jennifer Aniston - Harpers Bazaar (255,000 copies, up 22%)
Jennifer Lopez - Glamour (624,000 copies, up 1%)
Julia Roberts - Elle (390,000 copies, down 10%)
Hilary Swank - InStyle (800,000 copies, down 6%)
Halle Berry - Vogue (540,000, down 5.5%)


I know this is old news, but today was the first time that I laid eyes on the Lavin for H&M collection. I usually have mixed emotions about H&M designer collections but I really think that Lavin hit it out of the park. Here are my favorites from the collection! What do you think?
