a few more

Who is this girl with straight hair and not even the slightest inkling of an afro or afro-tendencies?

I've only ever had a few pieces of nice jewelry and now I have a few more. I've just never been a jewelry girl. I'm usually content with cheesy costume jewelry or nothing at all. My engagement ring was a small plain diamond and I loved it. I still love it. I just haven't been able to wear it since April because it stopped fitting around the time I got sick. So instead, I've been wearing a green amethyst ring (link to pic below) that J bought me for our first Christmas-ukkah that we lived together from a jewelry store in the mall that was going out of business.

My parents took me shopping and we got some very nice pieces during an even nicer sale. My parents are in no way loaded, and if it wasn't marked down as much as it was, I would have pretended to hate it so they wouldn't spend full price. But that wasn't the case, so I gleefully indulged.

More pics here.

The earrings are hiding in this pic, but are pearls that came in the most adorable oyster box. The necklace has a unique bow that is covered in tiny settings of marcasite which also matches a vintage-looking marcasite ring. I picked out the necklace and ring separately, at different stores, but when I got home I realized they matched!

Jason and I also bought our wedding rings. They're being sized, so no pics yet. But soon.

50 days and counting

And my sister bought me a ton of crackle nail polish and I am now addicted. See here.
