Falling in Love…

I do this really awful thing, called falling in love…

And I don’t do it casually. I do it madly, deeply, to an extreme; to the point my heart is spilled out on the floor and I’m dragging it wherever I go.

You see, I do this really awful thing, called falling in love… I engulf myself into the lives of others and make it mine, because why would they not love me more that way, involved in what they love? Why would I not love what they love, solely because such a beautiful person loves it? I get lost in the swirling sea of their life.

You see, I do this really awful thing, called falling in love… Their single glance, their tone, their actions towards me dictate my emotions and drowns my days. I take my dragging heart through woods, puddles, let it get stomped on by boots, and yet it still holds on and loves just the same. Maybe stronger because it was so weak.

And that’s why it’s such an awful thing, falling in love. I let my heart fall so brutally to the floor and leave a hole in my chest, with none left for me. It falls so quickly that it has no time to breathe, decide, realize…

Maybe one day, I’ll be a little wiser, softer, lovelier… Maybe one day, it won’t be such an awful thing, falling in love…

Sultry Tuesday…

I went to NYC this past weekend and am already having withdrawals… The beauty, quirkiness and elegance the city has about it truly inspires me. So here’s some city-inspired tumblr ‘inspo’ for the start of your week…

Ettika x Saks…

Hey everyone! I recently just partnered up with Ettika, a bohemian style, handmade jewelry company. As a member of their Review Team, I get to try some of their amazing pieces and share them with you! Currently the biggest trend in the accessory department is chokers, and just in time for summer and with all of the Coachella rage, Ettika have created the most beautiful, colorful beaded chokers that can be stacked and worn individually!


I got mine in this gorgeous turquoise color, but it also comes in green, orange, yellow, light pink, white and so much more. They have hundreds of different beaded and other exquisite chokers on their website.

These are perfect for every occasion, whether you’re dressing up for a night out or just going for lunch with some friends, I love mine so much I wear it almost every day! Not only that, but the chain is long enough so that if you aren’t feeling the choker style for the day, you can loosen it and wear it as a regular beaded necklace. This is a great shade of turquoise as well, and the beads are so beautiful and genuine that none of them look the same, they carry an authentic stone vibe rather than all being a solid color. This is the perfect summer piece!

April Rocksbox…

I’m back at it in the realm of jewelry and teaming up with Rocksbox to show you the awesome sets I receive from them and how you can get them too!

If you don’t already know, Rocksbox is a jewelry distributor company that hand picks designer piece and sends you a “set” (3 pieces). This can range anywhere from necklaces to rings, earrings, and bracelets. Sometimes a set isn’t exactly always a ‘set’ like you have in mind; this can be two bracelets and a necklace, the typical idea of a set with earrings a bracelet and a necklace, etc. What happens is, you pay a monthly subscription fee. When the jewelry is sent to you, you can keep it for as long as you like, or send it back for your next set. You can even send only two pieces back, and get two more back! Rocksbox also allows you to buy the designer pieces at a special discounted price!  Shipping the items back is easy and free, as Rocksbox provides you with packaging and labels.

This month, I received two necklaces and a pair of earrings.

On Rocksbox, you can favorite pieces that you like so that they can be sent to you. I ‘favorited’ these earrings, although I was a bit skeptical and unsure, when they arrived they were more beautiful than anticipated! There has never been anything from Rocksbox that I’ve gotten that I haven’t liked. The best part of all of it, is that you can always stay on trend and wear the best designer items for an affordable price.

Shoes: Forever 21 (similar)

 

Forever 21 in all honesty is the goldmine of affordable trends. This 70s inspired outfit is just a few things among the hundreds of pieces Forever 21 has that is modernized from the decade. Not only that, but different parts of their stores carry different trends. I’m crazy in love with this trend, as I think the pieces put separately with other modern pieces from your closet are effortlessly timeless.
