Hi all! Today’s post will be a Latest Acquisition instead of a Latest Haul as I only purchased three items which to me doesn’t really qualify as a haul. Besides I feel like I’ve been YouTubing more than actual blogging so here’s my stuff:
Now that I finally pulled my jewelry out of storage it’s been tons of fun adding the items I have accumulated these last four months, I’m pretty sure I’ve completed three bracelets now! I still have to work on my ocean bracelet, that one is three charms away from being done, and after that the green two tone I’ve been working on as well! But getting back to this latest acquisition, I’ve been wanting the Peace and Prosperity beads since they first came out! I love that they are actual gemstones (although now I’m doubting if the Prosperity bead is man made or not, does anyone know for sure?) and not that I know anything because I don’t but what if they get retired or something? So I finally took the plunge and splurged! For those that are not aware, the Prosperity bead is made out of aventurine, while the Peace bead is made out of Lapis Lazuli. I don’t really buy my Essence beads based on the meaning, I buy them more for how the bead itself looks like.
I also finally gave in and bought the Essence bangle, I know that for my review I wasn’t too impressed but let me tell you all I’ve changed my tune! I love that the beads sit on top of the bracelet! I’m almost contemplating selling off my essence bracelets in order to buy all bangles!! I’ll be getting another bangle for sure! I love getting Pandora stuff in pairs!
I think I’ll be wearing the now retired Compassion along with both the Peace and Prosperity beads together, I like the color combo for some reason, might be because when Essence first came out there was a styling just like that and it stuck in my mind.
There has been a couple of you who have asked to see my entire Essence collection on YouTube, don’t despair, I plan on filming it very soon for your viewing pleasure. Also now that I have rediscovered my Essence I plan on buying a lot more from my wish list, I don’t know why but lately I’ve been wanting to just zero out my wish list! Must be the stress I’m feeling because even though the move to our new house has been officially over now for a couple of months, with the holidays and other things happening, I haven’t had time to unpack and my house is so messy and full of boxes everywhere! Retail therapy to the rescue I always say LOL!
