19th. An article of clothing/jewellery that instantly makes you feel great

Sometimes it’s the simplest things in life that put a smile on your face. For me, it’s this necklace. No matter what outfit I wear, I always feel x100 better wearing it!

OMG, 100 posts!? Woohoo, I actually feel quite accomplished! DO A HAPPY DANCE WITH ME MY FELLOW BLOGGERS!~

HELLOOOOOOOOO helloberry!

Ever heard of them? http://helloberryinc.com/index.php

You must be crazy or always looking down at your phone if you haven’t noticed these delicious arm candies walking around everywhere!

After seeing my favourite YouTuber’s, ThatsHeart and Beautycakez wear these, I instantly fell in love! I waited months and months, constantly debating about purchasing any bracelets, but now I finally did it! Seeing an email saying your package has been shipped made me the giddiest girl in the WORLD!

Receiving a package in the mail JUST for you is THE COOLEST THING IN THE WORLD! Much better than a text msg! I love things that are personalized and have great care for the little details taken into it, and shoutout to this team for doing it right! From the stamp to the card, it’s all just super adorable! (and I’m NOT a girly girl!)

It makes you feel so special!

Helloberry bracelet: London Fog Smoothie

Helloberry bracelet: Mocha Mini Smoothie 

I chose neutral coloured bracelets so that I could have more to match with, but I really recommend buying a bold colour because the contrast with the gold chain will make it stand out beautifully! (They’ve also started silver as well, woohoo!)

The thicker bracelet (The London Fog Smoothie) is, in my opinion, much more of a statement compared to the mini smoothie, which is more for that nice dainty arm candy to have.

I’m a very skinny person, so the next time I’m buying, I’m going to have to see if I can get a customize bracelet so that it has a more snug fit for me.

I must sound like some crazy advertiser, but I’m not. (But I have been waiting to get these so that I could write a blog post about them!) When I buy things like jewelry, I enjoy every aspect of it. Finding a brand WORTH buying from is what counts too. I do my research and wait for a long period of time before finalizing something like this because I know in the end it’ll be worth it. This team not only advertises themselves well, but they always reply to their customers and welcome them into the family, which I think is just amazing! #ihearthelloberry

9. The item at the top of your wish list

Ironically, I had a really hard time picking this because I’ve actually been acquiring the things that have been on my wish list for SO LONG.

I’m currently hunting for that perfect cuff for my cartilage. I find a cuff more attractive than just a typical diamond stud. Online at Etsy, you can find THE most amazing earrings, lobe, cartilage, chains and all!

My achieved wish list:

  • Brown jacket
  • Helloberry bracelets
  • High-low skirt
  • Maxi skirt
  • Infinity leopard scarf
  • Chain cuff earring
  • Denim-leather jacket

Vietnam truly is beautiful. I envy how stunning the women look! When I was at Carabram at the Vietnam pavilion, they gave us each a copy of their magazine, The Viet Sun (Volume VI- July 2012). I fell in love with their beauty, style, fashion & lifestyle~

You know when you’re on a hunt to find something and the accomplished feeling of FINALLY finding it!? I experienced this yesterday! I love love love chain cuff earrings!

Chain Cuff: H&M ($5.95)

I have an obsession for them! It’s one of the reasons I even pierced my cartilage. I’m still looking for some really unique ones, but I think I might have to look online instead. Any store recommendations?

Rings. Rings. Rings. This is my personal favored accessory. People who hang with me always know I will have rings bearing my very long fingers! Every girl should have some diamonds, and if they come in the form of really funky rings, then I’ll ALL for~

PS. No, I did NOT mean wedding rings!

I figured I would show you guys some of my rings, as an excuse to also use my soft box kit. Not all of them,  but my top set that I wear.

This is what I call my “evolution” set. I got the one on the right (Store-Aldo) from my little brother (he buys me LOTS of rings! And has great taste too.) I then got the bigger one on the left (Store- Ardene) from my trio a few months ago~

A few years ago my cousin was giving me a BUNCH of stuff she didn’t want (clothes, bags, accessories) and this was one of them! Not only is it colored a beautiful emerald green, but it also … SPINS! I”m not kidding, it really does! Pretty cool right? The spinning feature can distract me sometimes … or a lot …

This ring was also a gift from my trio that I really enjoy wearing, which is also from Ardene. I really took a liking to big rings because it can make such a statement without trying.

Both rings are from Aldo’s Accessories that I got a few years ago. I’ve worn these so many time’s that the colour is actually starting to fade. The shapes of these are what caught my eye. They both have an almost floral-like print on them, giving them a subtle touch of femininity~

This is this year’s ring from my little brother, HOORAY! He really knows how to pick them, especially when I like unique looking rings. This one blew me away, not just because it fit me really well, but because of how it looks like wings curling together~

This is just a close-up of one of the rings. I really like the style because it’s almost like a painting with it being long and rectangular.

This is what I feel is my “Victorian-styled” ring. It is very big, but really comfy. I bought it because I felt the black center piece could go with a lot of my outfits because it’s such a neutral colour. I really like the intricate designs too!

I don’t know why, but every time I look at this ring I think of a Ferris wheel for some odd reason … but yeah. This actually curves outwards at both ends, so it’s almost barely on my finger.

I’M OBSESSED WITH THIS RING! The Forever21 ring for only $1.50! Ch’yeah! Me and my friend Fazal call it “the samurai sword”! Slash! I love these long styled rings, it’s a lot of fun to wear, even though it sometime’s pokes me … in the face.

These are all 3 separate bands, but it’s really nice to wear them stacked up. My mom gave these to me, and these were my first “silver rings”, so I treasure them a LOT! I felt so cool wearing these when I was going out, it got me into occasionally buying rings afterwards~

Despite the fact that I suck at cleaning my jewelry, I love wearing them regardless. What’s your go-to must-have accessory? =)

If there’s one store I LOVE but am really intimidated by prices, it would be Forever21. I mean have you seen their clothes & prices?! Ugh, so pretty, but not exactly my sort of pricing (personally speaking at least. The guilt eats me at night!), you know?

However, my aunt came to my rescue this past weekend! She actually bought me clothes from there! I was in total shock that she actually did that. The things she purchased was such a nice variety of texture and quirky-ness, I was smiling far too much!

  • Grey open cropped casual jacket/flyaway- $18.50
This top doesn’t button up, but the back is shorter than the front. The material is so silky and smooth, you never want to take it off. The sleeve’s have a nice cuff style, about 3/4 sleeves. Because the front of the jacket is long, you can also tie it together.

  • Blue lace open fashion jacket/flyaway- $20.50
Lace is extremely popular, and if you’ve been to a Forever21 store recently since the spring line came out, then you know exactly what I mean! When you look at this top, it has a very big box-like cut to it and intricate little details. It’s a cropped sleeve, and the fabric is very breathable, but can feel a bit funny against your skin after a long while. This is a piece I’m definitely willing to give a try!

  • Long chain necklace- $10.80

There was a white layered lace cami that sadly didn’t fit me (I’m a size XS, not a S). I couldn’t find it anywhere & didn’t want to go downtown Toronto for one top. Not worth it. So I figured, “why not exchange it?”

Here’s what the white cami looked like: http://canada.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?br=F21&Category=top&ProductID=2000040918

I was a very excited little shopper because I knew I had PLENTY of time to thoroughly search for a nice article of clothing and to try on sizes with no rush.

  • High-low dress- $18.50

  • Cross ring- $1.50
  • 3 set earrings- $3.80

3 things for the total of $23.80 instead of just one lace cami for $23.80? Well if THAT isn’t good shopping, then I don’t know what is! =)

My rule is if you’re spending money, or exchanging, make it worth it’s money. Buy things that you would WANT to wear, not clothes your hesitant about. Make sure you like what you buy. I’ve seen too many people buy clothes that they didn’t really love, and realize they couldn’t return it (always check store policies!) and it just sits there in the back of the closet!

What do you think about when you’re shopping? =)
