Blogizing Review: That’s a Wrap….Get Lucky

Over the last eight months, life has been tough.  I have been juggling a degree in Psychology, a part time job, my own yoga business and bringing up my three children single handed.  Money has been tight and we decided to throw a puppy into the mix….oh my days.  So….as my life was busy and stressful enough, I really did not need what was to happen next. My eldest child, a 15 year old boy, who, when everyone who meets him says he is sure going to be a heart breaker (I think he already is-as the gaggle of girls follow him around and he responds with his ‘can’t be arsed’ attitude) was run over by an elderly gentleman, and he suffered serious injuries.  Two broken femurs to be exact.  i found out by his friend calling me on my mobile, luckily…just as i had arrived home.  What normally would take the likes of Linford Christie a good 5 minute sprint to where the accident had happened, it took me literally 3!  There I was running like I had never done before down the road, dressed in a short red dress, and drivers beeping me as I ran past!  For goodness sake….do you not  know that my son has just been run over…that was my thoughts…in between ‘please god, please let him be ok, just let him be awake.’  Of course the drivers did not know that the lad laid in the middle of the road further down the street was my son. As I approached I saw a trainer further up the road from where everyone was crowding round.  My heart jumped to my mouth and everything began to spin. ‘Please let him be alive….please just be awake..’ I kept repeating over and over in my mind.  I approached his friend who was inconsolable.  Luckily, my son was conscious…just.  The ambulance seemed to take forever and my son was drifting in and out, trying to tell me he was going to sleep.  I did all I could to keep him awake.  I was not going to lose him no way. Although this was a stroke of bad luck (and we have had more since-but that’s another story) it was also a stroke of good luck…because he survived and eight months down the line he is almost back to normal….barr the metal rods in his legs…but he is getting there.  HE IS ALIVE and that is all that matters. I came across this bracelet recently and it reminded me of what we as a family have been through these last 8 months…a serious accident, issues with the children’s father which has brought a lot of stress, anxiety problems, money problems, and finally only last week an accident at school involving once again my teenage boy who has now suffered a broken arm as a result!  I can honestly say I have not had such a bad run of luck in such a short space of time.  So when I saw the name of this bracelet….That’s a wrap-Get Lucky I thought, this is an omen, I have been brought to this for a reason.

Alternative Proposal: Review

Are you planning on proposing some time this year but not sure how to do it?  Are you looking for something different other than he standard get down on one knee? Are you unsure if they will say ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ and for this reason would like to put off buying the ring until you are sure? (OK, so this last question is not ideal, but lets be honest it happens…..)

Whilst browsing the internet this morning I found this charming necklace, It can be personalised with any message you wish.  However, I thought it was perfect with the message ‘Marry Me.’  How cute, and what a great keepsake (if they said yes, of course!). There is a mini version (which is the one shown above) at a cost of £49, with the standard size costing £68-£80 depending upon whether you choose the gold or silver option.

We would be more than happy to be proposed in this way.  Gone are the days of ‘down on one knee’ holding an Elizabeth Duke velveteen ring box.  You need to stand out from the crowd and make a proposal that your chosen lady will remember for time.  However you decide to do it, this would be a great addition.

Stunning Silver Jewelry Inspired by Bali

anniehaak

As you may or may not know, I love to write about things I like, including clothes and accessories.  My chosen items this time around are from a designer called Annie Haak http://www.anniehaakdesigns.co.uk/  Her website states that she gets much of the inspiration for her designs from the magical island of Bali where she is based for most of the year. Her influences are gathered from many aspects of Bali life from the local flora and fauna, the magical people and the colours and patterns found in the local markets and villages.  Perhaps this is why some of the pieces really do appear rather magical!!!

Many of the designs carry a special meaning by way of mantras or symbols that represent luck, love, protection strength and well-being. It is core to Annie’s design ethos that all her designs should carry a message of either love or support.

I first came across this designer a couple of years ago when I was reading a spiritual magazine, some of her bracelets incorporating guardian angels were featured in the magazine.  As a total ‘angel believer’ I immediately fell in love with them.  So much so in fact that I cut out her Sama My Guardian Angel design and added it to my collage art work which hangs in my bedroom.

Additionally, I am naturally attracted to silver jewelry.  It appears to suit my skin tone much better than gold.  However, there is now a few gold and rose gold options, which are equally as beautiful, I guess it just depends upon your personal preference.

Unfortunately to date, I have not managed to get my hands on the bracelet stack I so desperately would like (see featured image), due to lack of funds, but should I ever start to get paid for my writing, then I will ensure my first pay check pays for one!  I have however, treated myself to a lovely pair of earrings.  Which I have had now for over a year.  They are simple but lovely, a star with a single diamond in the middle.  They still look like new and we were worth the pounds I spent investing in them.  In addition, they came in a beautiful lined velvet bag and box which I now use to store some of my favourite crystals.  This is a range which when you receive the item, everything about it screams ‘quality’.  I was not disappointed and look forward to when I am able to add to my collection.

There are also lots of other reviews from happy customers on the website. If you like the style of this jewelry have a read, you will see there is nothing but positive comments about the quality and style of the jewelry.  I am sure you too will love this range.  I know Danni Minogue and Ferne Cotton are big fans too!

I absolutely love these bracelets, and what is even so fabulous about them is the Christmas sale they currently have on, with a selection of bracelets available for just £21, a great saving from the original price of around £120!!! Beautiful handmade leather bracelets with stones and gems.  Perfect with any outfit and cant wait to wear mine in the festival season!!!
