August Jewelry Subscription Box

August Jewelry Box

It’s been two months since the launching of the handmade jewelry subscription box.  July box was the lovely slim gold stacking bangles and the August box were these lightweight silver shimmer dangle earrings.  Now it’s September and I’m sure subscribers are going to love this month’s box.  There’s still time to subscribe or sign up to our list for updates on our new collections, style tips and other fashionable tidbits.

Make It Monday: Make Time For Yourself

Make Time

Today’s Make It Monday is a bit different.  It’s nothing crafty or stylish (although it could be), but it’s something we need to remember to do regularly.  I personally didn’t realize the importance of this until recently.  We become so consumed with daily activities and responsibilities that we forget that every now and then we need to stop and take some time back for ourselves.  Here are 5 things you can do when you take a time out for yourself.

  1. Go for a walk.  Take in the scenery, smile at a stranger or whistle while you walk.

2. Take up yoga.  This has to be one of the best ways to de-stress and center your mind.




3. Grab a cup of your favorite coffee.  I’m a coffee lover and I love walking into a coffee shop and smelling freshly brewed coffee.

4. Get lost in a bookstore.

Make It Monday: Chocolate Dipped Truffles

Chocolate Covered Dates 1

This summer has been unusual than most summers.  Usually during summertime I’m trying new recipes, experimenting with different jewelry pieces, basically just having experimenting fun.  For the past couple of weeks I’ve been glued (literally) to this new course I’m taking on Creative Live taught by a online mentor of mine, Megan Auman and taking a stab at refining my business strategies to better focus my jewelry business.  Most of my time has been occupied doing homework, but I did manage to sneak in this recipe over the weekend that I found on Pinterest.

Chocolate Covered Dates

I bought some noor dates from the Farmer’s Table a week ago with the idea of finding a yummy dessert.  Thanks to the Minimalist Baker , I decided to try her recipe for Caramel Peanut Butter Truffles and I must say there are only two left in the freezer and it’s only Monday.  I even add sliced strawberries mixed in a little vanilla on the side. Writing this is making me want another one.  So I’m going to take little break now and go grab one, but be sure to check out the recipe the Minimalist Baker’s site.
