2. You have the most …

RINGS! I don’t even know how many I have to be honest! I can clean my room or my bags and I’ll find others that I forgot I have!

The first picture was a set of rings from my mom, you can see the full post called “Thank You For The Faith

I’ve been collecting rings ever since my mom gave me 3 silver band rings that I fell in love with and felt all grown up wearing~

You can see more photo’s of my other rings (the bigger and more intricate ones) in my post called “Pretty Little Things

I feel like rings can show off your personality and give off vibes based on your mood. That may sound weird, but when rings (and earrings) are your most favored accessories, you tend to feel like they show who you are~

I was just chilling, going through wordpress blogs as usual, when my mom comes in and puts a tiny box in front of me and said,

“This is my way of saying congratulations of passing your first year of university.”

My mom was SO SWEET! She had showed me this 4-ring set in an Avon booklet, and she actually bought them for me!

They are each very different from each other, and I love each one! Stackable rings are so much fun to wear!

I loved how they presented it to. Just the idea of tying the rings with a simple black ribbon and the inside of the tiny black box being fancy instantly gives it a more glamorous feel to it. Presentation is the best way to go from simple to sophisticated~

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? =)
