The Little Things

Hello!
I'm starting to feel much better now, physically and emotionally. Robert has taken me shopping and my hair has finally gotten a much needed trim. If there's anything I've learned from playing Bejeweled from the past few days is that...everything will work out in the end no matter which way you decide to go. Play it, and you'll see. I just need to get through the next month of school, particularly my last midterm tomorrow. So here's a quick post before I go bury myself in Cultural Psychology (yuck...).

Sarah from LuShae Jewelry contacted me a few days ago and asked whether I would review a piece from her store so of course I jumped at the chance! I recently stopped wearing my rings because one of them was turning my finger green, and it wasn't a pretty look. When I saw that the jewelry from her store uses better material (ie. white gold, sterling silver, CZ crystals, etc) at reasonable prices, my ring obsession started coming back. I settled upon this simple band because a lot of her rings reminded me of engagement rings and Robert actually picked this one out.

While its shininess was frustrating while I was taking pictures because my reflection kept appearing, I absolutely adore this ring! It is easily now my favorite ring. I really wish I could have the other word-stamped rings so I could stack them together, but one will do for now. I've been wearing it all day and it hasn't turned my finger green at all. The quality is great, and the product looks better in person than it does online. The shipping was incredibly fast. I ordered it May 3rd and it came today! So if you're procrastinating to find a Mother's Day gift or if you just want to buy some non-green-turning jewelry, I urge you to have a look around! Her store is currently offering a 50% off sale on all jewelry and free shipping! Over all, I'd give her jewelry a 8.5/10 for fast shipping, great quality, good packaging, and an accurate translation from online to reality; however, I do wish her products had more range and weren't just geared towards engagements. Thank you Sarah!

  1. This is so simple yet SO adorable. I'm so ashamed what I've been wearing lately... basically pj pants and sweaters. :( I feel guilt! That ring is too cute <3 I love how plain it is, but just so gorgeous. I struggled with taking photos of some of my rings too cause they just reflect all the damn time!

  11. Yay for new piece of jewelry :) I guess I'm a sucker for anything tacky, so I opted for the giant aqua stone ring from LuShae :p Oh Jasmine, I always adore your outfits. They give me inspirations on what to wear during the warmer seasons! so next stop, red+blue combo :D

    I love Bejeweled! It's better than tetris, don't you think? ;)

    And shopping therapy is the best stress relief! :D How sweet of Robert to take you on a shopping trip! Yay for boyfriend :D

  13. She contacted em also for a review but everything was so engagementy (I just made up that word) that I declined. I wish I had seen this little gem though it's so simple and chic!

    AND I Bejeweled is one of my favorite games to play, I can get lost playing it for hours!

  18. Currently it sounds like BlogEngine is the top
    blogging platform out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
