FFF: Jewelry!

First off, I love Stella & Dot jewelry. It’s probably the only distributor I don’t mind to spend a decent amount of money on. Normally, I’d go to Forever 21 or even NY&Co for my “fun” jewelry, but if I see something I like at a Stella & Dot party, I’m busting out my wallet. Here are a few of the pieces I want to add to my very small collection!

Stella & Dot

The Olivia Bibb Necklace: Destined to become an iconic favorite, layers of bright coral-hued epoxy stones suspend from a detailed gold plated brass necklace, creating the perfect preppy bib.

  • 16 1/2″ in length plus 2″ extender.
  • Lobster clasp closure.
  • Lead & nickel safe.

Inspired by her daughter’s incredible sense of style, Beverly Lueckemeyer picked the name Olivia for her piece. She hopes everyone will create joyful fashion combinations, like Olivia, when they wear this beautiful necklace. This necklace would be perfect for work or play. I love the casual look on the model, but think this piece could easily be paired with a white blouse or a blazer. A little pricey at $118, but still would be something to consider.

The Chimera Bangle: Shiny gold plated brass cast rope bracelet features dual lion heads with Czech glass stone details. My cat obsession would live on through this gorgeous piece. This bangle would not look great on it’s own, but also with the next item below. Price: $59

The Christina Link Bracelet: Striking handset pave crystal links accent this faceted bracelet for a sophisticated look. This bracelet would look soooo sharp with my Fossil watch. The crystals would compliment the same accent on my watch. $49 for this bracelet, but so worth it, considering I’d probably wear it constantly.

Sanibel Chandeliers: High-shine cabochon stones in semi-precious labradorite, semi-precious aqua chalcedony and rutillated glass shimmer in this satin-finished, chandelier frame in silver plating. These earrings are absolutely gorgeous! I am a huge fan of big earrings and always love stone jewelry, so it’s literally the perfect combo. Priced at $49, these are perfect for the upcoming spring season.

Aavelon Necklace: Irresistibly long, this delicat necklace is dotted with stationed links in Stella and Dot’s new signature motif.  

  • Chain with gold plating. 
  • 36″ long with 2″ extender. 
  • Lead and nickel safe.

I’m a huge fan of this combo and would probably end up buying both at the same time. I think this look would be perfect for casual or dress. The long necklace is priced at $49 and the shorter is $39. Not too shabby.

TTT: Things I Won’t Drink


Tomato Juice. I’ve never tried it and probably never will, even though everyone I know loves Bloody Marys. Tough!

Red Bull. When I was younger, I was introduced to the Jager Bomb. This “classic” bar favorite was something I assumed would taste great and make me feel even better. WRONG. After that retched substance (the Jager) finally left my body the next day, I vowed never to touch the stuff again. A few weeks later, a friend of mine popped open a Red Bull, nearly sending me to a nearby bush. It was then I realized that Red Bull was the culprit that made me horrendously ill…well that and forever the smell of wing sauce.

Mellow Yellow. Maybe it’s the fact that I spent most of my youth watching my uncle spit his tobacco into a Mellow Yellow bottle that made me want to vomit at the sight of this pee colored drink, or maybe it was the actual fact that it was a pee colored drink. Whatever the reason, this drink has never touched my lips, nor do I ever plan on letting it. I’m sorry if some of you out there are a fan, but this stuff makes me cringe!

I apologize if any of these drinks are a personal favorite of yours.

In other news, I arrived home after my run to find that my Stella & Dot earrings had arrived!!




Hooray! I’ve had my eye on these bad boys for quite some time!

Before I wrap things up, let me ask you: Are there any drinks you refuse to touch?
