Etsy: The Biggest Craft Show, All on Your Computer

Etsy.com is the my new favorite place to shop for jewelry. i don't even know how to pronounce it, but Etsy has a variety of hand made crafts from jewelry and handbags to wooden engraved signs.

I would buy something from Etsy over a over publicized site such as Girl Props because you are helping out the little guy. Anyone can sell their good on Etsy; this means you wont find your necklace in the pages of this months Seventeen, but classmates will comment on your amazing style.

I have been searching for a unique ring that matches my personal style, sophisticated and simple. I quickly found a few rings that captured my interest.

this one is made of shrinky dinks, this is so original and really creative.

$8 here

This ring is so pure and simple, but is easy to wear, and casual, because of its imperfect qualities.
$20 here

This ring caught my eye because i like the contrast of the pure sterling silver and the black onyx. the ring is perfect for a laid back outfit.

$8 here

This isn't a ring but it is really cute. It has such an authentic vintage feel, its like you just got it out of your grandma's jewelry box.

$24 here

Spring Fashion Trends Preview

All of the clothing stores are getting their shipments of spring clothes. It is inevitable that I will buy clothes before April comes around and I can actually wear them. In order to save money this season, my goal this season is to only buy key pieces I decide to purchase ahead of time. This way I won't blow all of my precious savings on things I don't really like that much. Here is my spring shopping list of my must buys for this season's trends.

Light Wash Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans, Rolled up of Course

Gladiator Sandals

Floral Pieces

Neon Accents

Pac Sun $16
