Ugh, once again I have let this blog disappear into oblivion. But in my defense, I recently got hitched, and planning for that was like having a second job on its own. Top that with having a full time job and writing for, Brit+Co so honestly who was I kidding when I thought I would also have time to keep up this blog. But anyway, that’s going to change (for real this time). Since I’m writing posts for Brit+Co once a week anyway, I figured I may as well start linking to them as part of my Frankly, my dear posts. And hopefully I will have time to also include some of my original posts every once in a while. So here we go! Here’s my latest post, and I’ll work my around to all the rest.
I’ve always been slightly obsessed with jewellery, but the past few years the obsession has focused mainly on rings….between chunky cocktail rings, delicate gold rings, or multiple stacked rings I really can’t get enough of them. I usually store my jewellery hidden away in boxes, but I love the idea of using ring holders to display just a few of my prettiest rings without creating clutter on my dresser….and they make the perfect engagement present! What better way for a bride-to-be to keep her ring safe when she’s not wearing it, but at the same time beautifully displayed? Here are some of my favorites:
1. Umbrella Ring holder $12 2. Landmark Ring Dish $12 3. Etsy Ring Holder $30 4. Glass Cloche Ring Holder $49
5. Ceramic Elephant Ring Holder $12 6. Hare and Now Ring Holder $9.99 7. Crown Ring Holder $32
8. Wish Bone Jewelry Holder $46.50
I LOVE stationery. That might sound like a strange thing to say, but I really, really do. I’m hyper-organised and make lists/spreadsheets for everything I do, so anything that helps me with this is my new best friend. And while I have progressed into the modern age of apps , I still prefer the old school version of putting pen to paper (I have 3 different to-do list apps on my phone, but I’m also carrying around two notebooks in my purse, and have 4 more empty ones at home…so you get the idea). What makes me even more excited is when I find the exact same stuff in different colors….think rows and rows of different colored Sharpies, stacks of different colored Post-it notes and shelves of identical but differently colored notebooks. So you can only IMAGINE the pure glee when I discovered poppin, an online office supply store that makes minimalistic stationery and office supplies in a multitude of different colors.
I mean, this really is my heaven.
