8 Pairs Of Cute And Affordable Earrings Available On Amazon

I don’t wear a lot of jewelry in most of the fashion posts I do here on the blog and on Instagram. But I actually really love jewelry, especially earrings. They are probably my favorite type of accessory, next to purses that is. I don’t really like spending a lot on most of my jewelry since I like having a lot of different styles.

Fashions and colors change so frequently, I don’t want to sink a fortune into every piece I own. I bet a lot of you feel the same. That is why I wanted to share with you some of the cute and affordable earrings I have found on Amazon.

 

1. Gold Pineapple Dangle Earrings

Pineapple Dangle Earrings

The cute little pineapple earrings are perfect accents for tropical prints or if you just like pineapples. Get them for just $1.98. Shipping is free. But shipping does take a little while on this one as I believe it ships from China. I got mine in about two weeks after ordering.

 

2. Blue Moon and Star Dangle Earrings

Blue Moon and Star Earring

This is another pair that leans more to the theme side. I think these are great to go with a galaxy dress or to get as a gift for an astronomy lover. They sell for $1.89 and shipping is $2.99. I can’t really speak on how long shipping is for this particular one. I ordered mine from a different seller and that seller has sold out now.

 

3. Faux Leather Long Oval Dangle Earrings

Faux Leather Dangle Earrings

The shape isn’t that unique on these, but the material makes them stand out. I purchased mine in a mint color, but they are available in seven other color options if you aren’t a fan of the color mint. They sell for $7.99 and you get free prime shipping.

 

4. 3D Triangle Earrings

3D Triangle Earrings

On the one hand this particular pair of earrings are pretty plain, but on the other hand they seem so unique. I purchased mine in the black color. It is also available in gold and silver, however I personally thing the black stands out more. They sell for $8.99 with free prime shipping.

 

5. Vintage Style Engraved Dangle Earrings

Vintage Engraved Earrings

These are a vintage style earring. They are green with a bronze engraved pattern. I chose the round ones, but they are available in five other shapes. They are all unique and beautiful. They sell for $8.99 with free prime shipping.

 

6. Vintage Tassel Mint Green Drop Earrings

Mint Tassel Earrings

Tassel have taken over everywhere. I personally think the best place to incorporate them is in my jewelry. I decided to pick a pair of tassel earring in mint because I have so many clothes with this color for the summer.

 

7. Unicorn Statement Earrings

Unicorn Dangle Earrings

It should be no surprise that I have unicorn earrings. I need them to go with my unicorn dress and my unicorn shoes. I got mine in the purple color, but they are available in two other color options. They sell for $9.99 with free prime shipping.

 

8. Hibiscus Dangle Earring

Hibiscus Flower Earringsrings

I actually got this to match one particular dress that is a favorite of mine. Its one that I know I will never likely get rid of and it has hibiscus throughout the print. These are really perfect for lots of tropical or tiki prints. Mine is in the red dangle style, but there are lots of colors and style options. The seller Hawaii Hangover has lots of other matching accessories to check out.

 

Now you may have all noticed that all of the earrings I have shown are on a French Hook. That is because that is mainly what I wear. I occasionally wear hoop earrings, but I never wear studs. I have thicker ear lobes as well as a I get scars called keloids. Constant rubbing can cause keloids, so I generally avoid studs because they are too tight on my ear and rub. But if you look around many of the styles I have shown are also available on a stud post instead of a French hook.

For those of you looking to invest a little more in your jewelry there are some brands you might consider checking out. PANACEA always has current style fashion jewelry that feels a little more upscale, and many of their items are available for try on through Prime Wardrobe. If you like something with some vintage flare, then the brand 1928 Jewelry might be worth checking out. And if the mix of bling and cute is more your speed the brand Beaux Bijoux fits that exactly.

Tell me in the comments what your favorite style of earrings are.

Product Review – VOGUEKNOCK Waterfall Bead Necklace in Fuchsia

Waterfall pearl necklace and matching earrings


Just like last year, around this time, I will be reviewing a lot of services and products up until December that you might want to consider for gift giving. Yes, it is that time of year again where some of us have already started our Christmas shopping.

The first product I wanted to share with you is this Waterfall Pearl Necklace in Fuchsia. The brand is VOGUEKNOCK and it comes from the Amazon seller VK Accessories.

Layered nacklace from VK Accessories

When you receive your package, this is what you will see:

It arrived in this nice velvet bag. I personally like when jewelry I order comes like this in case I want to keep it separated from my other jewelry. Or if I want to give it as a gift it gives it a little extra special feeling.

Opening the packacke from VK Accessories

When you get into the velvet bag, you can see the necklace also comes wrapped in plastic as well. Though honestly if I were giving this as a gift I do think that I would take the necklace out of the plastic and just put it back into the velvet bag.

In the second bag you see in the front, the bag also contained this package. The white label on the bag simply said free gift. Of course it is a matching pair of earrings.

Waterfall pearl necklace and matching earrings

The chain size varies from 18.5 inches long to 30.5 inches long. It has a nice weight to it. The product page says that the chain color is rose gold, but it most definitely not rose gold. It is yellow gold.

The earrings are on a French hook, and they are in the same yellow gold and matching color of beads. The product page doesn’t really say anything about a free gift, so I don’t know if they always send these, or if this is a random things that happens.

I really am happy with my purchase, and I would highly recommend it for anyone that loves jewelry. Especially those that love layered necklaces. If you want to get one for yourself, you can find it here.

I did receive this item at a discounted price for review purposes. However all thoughts are my own and always honest.

Hot Must Have Accessories For Summer 2017

Merry's Fashion Mirrored Cat Eye Sunglasses

Accessories are those finishing touches that take an outfit from just looking good to making you look really put together. You can even make the plainest of outfits look outstanding with the right accessories. That is why I wanted to share with you my top picks for summer accessories. Some of these I own and some of them are on my personal wishlist.

VK Accessories Thread Ball Dangle Earrings

Thread ball dangle earrings

These thread ball dangle earring from VK Accessories are available in six different colors including the black pair I am wearing. I love them, and I am considering ordering one of the other colors. Hello turquoise! This look is one of the hottest trends in earrings for this season.

Light Blue Ombre Tiered Thread Statement Layered Earrings

Another hot look for the summer are these ombre tiered thread earrings. They are available in seven color options, but I think this light blue color is especially eye catching. I know this is on my wishlist.

Layered Tassel Drop Statement Pendant Necklace

Don’t forget to pick up necklace to match those tiered earrings. The necklace is available in two color options. This particular color combo would work with two of the earring color options.

Mirrored Cat Eye Sunglasses

Merry's Fashion Mirrored Cat Eye Sunglasses

Mirrored sunglasses were definitely hot last year. This year take it the extra step and make it cat eye sunglasses like these from MyBruneiStore. They are available in nine color options, though some colors have a more mirrored effect than others. I have on the C04 BLUE.

Galaxy S5 Case 3D Cartoon Unicorn Soft Silicone Rubber Back Cover Skin for Samsung Galaxy S5

Soft Silicone Unicorn Phone Case

Some people might say a stylish phone case is the only phone accessory you need. And since unicorns are all the rage right now, they might be right with this phone case. My old phone case was wearing out, so I just got this one, and I think its super cute. The link above is to the one that fits my phone, a Samsung Galaxy S5. They are also available for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, LG G Stylo/LG LS770/G4 Stylus/G4 Note, iPhone 5 / 5S Case, iPhone 6 Plus / 6s Plus, and iPhone 7. Depending on which phone you have there is also several color options available.

GUESS Flowers Necklace

Another top trend of the spring and summer is denim and white paired together. But what kind of accessories do you pair with that? Try this flower statement necklace from Guess. I don’t have this exact necklace, but I have something very similar that you will most likely see in a fashion post sometime soon.

Denim Dot Soft Headwrap

While we are talking denim and white accessories, why not try out this really cute headband. I love the vintage feel with the bow and the adorable heart print. This will definitely be on my list to buy soon.

 

Tell me in the comments below what’s on your must have list for this summer.

The Leaf, By Bellabeat – Where Did You Get That “Necklace”

Over the last month or so you might have noticed in a lot of my pictures I am wearing the same “necklace” over and over again. And it seem like, increasingly, every time I wear it out or in a picture I have someone asking where I got my “necklace”. So I thought I would make a post about it.

Each time someone asks me about where I got my “necklace” I am a little surprised that there is anyone left that doesn’t know about it already. It seems like I have seen it all over social media for well over a year. There was even a waiting list to get it initially. And just so you have a fresh idea of what I am talking about, here are some of the various pictures I have posted here on the blog, and on my various social media accounts, with me wearing the “necklace”.

And by now you have probably deduced with all my use of quotations marks around the word “necklace”, that its not a necklace at all, or at least its not just a necklace. What it actually is, is the Bellabeat Leaf Exclusive. Its a health tracker made to look and be worn like jewelry. So think like a fitbit, but it looks prettier. And it has some special advantages since it is made just for women in mind. First let me tell you a little more about it, and then I will tell you why I decided I wanted one and my overall thoughts on it since using it for almost a month now.

It comes in two color options, they have a silver with natural wood (which is what mine is) and there is a rose gold with black wood. You can wear these three different ways. I have obviously chosen to wear it as a necklace, but you can also wear it like a bracelet, or it can be clipped onto your clothing. Each leaf comes with the necessary items to be able to wear it all three ways. I will insert pictures I got from their website here so you can see what the other options look like.

And I don’t really have any pictures to share of it, but I just received an email saying they have a couple of new jewelry options for the Leaf. I took a look, and one is a really cool looking double wrap bracelet that comes in a couple of color options. And they also have a few new necklace chain options.

As I said before the Leaf is like a fitbit, but it is so much more. Designed by a woman – for women, the LEAF does everything a health tracker should do, and then some:

  • Measures sleep – the LEAF logs sleep quality and quantity, giving the user insight into the number of hours and percentage quality of sleep. The charts within the app let the user compare their periods of light sleep and deep sleep, allowing them to identify what type of day or activity leads to a better night’s sleep.
  • Tracks activity – measures daily movement, burned calories and allows the user to set daily goals to keep them motivated. The app will also let users enter specific sports and activities, giving a detailed overview of their movement throughout the day.
  • Monitors reproductive health – gives a detailed overview of the user’s menstrual cycle and helps women trying to conceive to identify ovulation days and increase their chances of successful conception. By cross-referencing daily activity in the LEAF app with their menstrual cycle, women are able to better understand their health trends during this specific time. The period part of the app is equipped with witty notes designed to brighten up the user during PMS times.Reduces stress – the built-in breathing exercises help the LEAF user cope with stress. By cross-referencing the breathing data with the amount of stress the user might be feeling, the LEAF allows the user to learn which breathing exercises help minimize stress.
  • Keeps things on schedule – the smart alarm feature within the LEAF app lets the user set reminders for things like taking their pill on time or getting tampons, there’s the wake up alarm option and an inactivity alert that warns the user if they’ve been inactive for too long.

I initially wanted a health monitor myself more for the sleep tracking aspect. I have always suffered from severe insomnia as well as sleep walking. I have done sleep studies, but haven’t really found much help, and I thought keeping track of my sleeping patterns might be helpful. I had held back from getting a fitbit because I didn’t like the way they were so bulky and I hate wearing anything on my wrist. When I saw the Leaf come out I thought it was such a great option. And I love that it has so many other things that it helps track like your period. (Story for another day, I have had a hysterectomy but still have a period)

It did take some getting use to remembering to put the necklace back on after a shower, but it didn’t take long. And outside of remembering to put it on, its really comfortable to wear, and it adjusts to various lengths. I really like the app that reminds me to take my pills. Its such a gentler way that a loud alarm on your phone to get the reminder. You only feel your necklace vibrate, and if you don’t remember what it was for you can look at your phone and will tell you what the alarm is for.

I haven’t really played around with the meditation app yet, but I do intend to. And while I am not trying to use it to encourage any extra exercise, I do find it interesting seeing how many steps I take day to day and what activities increase that without me really thinking about it.

Overall I am really happy with mine and if I had it to over again, I would still get it. As I use it more or as I see more products become available I will try and keep everyone updated. In the meantime, for anyone who wants to purchase one for themselves, I searched to see if I could find some special offers or coupon codes. I found this link that if you Order now and get your LEAF with free accessories. Or I also found on Offers Dot Com if you order at the Bellabeat Leaf Exclusive website and use code MYLEAF20, you are suppose to get 20% off your order. It says the coupon expires 5/31/16.

Does anyone else have the Leaf? How do you like yours? What was your main purpose for getting it, or did someone else get it for you?
