Because Who Doesn’t Love Customizable Jewelry…

A few weeks ago a fellow fashionista told me about this “awesome” online store that sells jewelry.  When she first started explaining what the company sold and what they were all about my first reaction was “So what? There are tons of stores that sell high-end jewelry on the Internet, this is 2015, ya know…”  As skeptical as I was though, I kept listening and learning more about the company.  The more she told me about the store and their pieces and the endless options that come with shopping there, the more intrigued I became.

From there, I kept talking to her and learned that everything the company sells is completely, 100% customizable.  They have the standard pieces, but there are tons of additional options available for each of those.  So, say you find a diamond bracelet that you love, but you already have a similar one. You would like the same bracelet with black diamonds (or any other stone; I am just partial to black!), but you don’t see that available on the site.  What do you do? You order that diamond bracelet, and in the customization options you specify that you would like black diamonds rather than the traditional white diamonds.  Easy as that!

After learning all of that initial information, I decided that it was time to check this out for myself. I went the Anjolee’s website and from there I was a goner.  As I looked from page to page and saw all the different amazing pieces they had and the vast number of options that are available for anything and everything they sell, I was in love! I decided I just had to have something from Anjolee (you know how that goes, I needed it!)

Now, I would tell a little white lie and say that I found a bracelet that I loved, ordered and paid for it, and a few weeks later I received it in the mail.  But, since when have I ever lied to you beauties? Well, I don’t plan on starting now, so…

Anjolee Tennis Bracelet Paired With Two Others

There are just so many things that can be done with this bracelet! I love the looked of stacked bracelets, so I pair my bracelet from Anjolee with tons of different things all the time, but this combo is one of my favorites (second only to the one below!). It goes with almost anything!

After expressing how much I loved the site and all that they offered, the amazing girl who told me about the store offered to send me a product of my choice! Someone who knows me all too well (& knows that 90% of my wardrobe/outfits consist of black) got me an amazing diamond tennis bracelet for Christmas (black and white), and I wear it all the time.  So naturally, when I was looking at the assortment of diamond bracelet designs on Anjolee’s website, the all-diamond bracelet immediately caught my eye and I knew I just had to have it… I mean they would just look awesome together, right?!  But anyway, getting back on track… When she told me I could choose an item that I liked, I obviously knew right away what I wanted.

Anjolee Diamond Bracelet And Black And White Diamond Bracelet Pair

My diamond tennis bracelet from Anjolee paired with my black and white diamond bracelet. Since black is a staple in my wardrobe and I wear it almost every day, I wear them together all the time and get tons of compliments every time!

So basically, long story short: Anjolee is an awesome online store that allows you to choose from a ton of pieces and customize them pretty much any way you could imagine.  I got this amazing bracelet that I wear all the time, and I am absolutely in love.  Needless to say, I will definitely be a repeat customer of the store (Well, provided I can afford it anyway; girlfriend is on a budget these days so I can move out of my parents’ house sometime this lifetime… Being an adult sucks! PS – I know you’re reading, so I love you, mama; you know you’re the best roomie ever!).

Check out Anjolee and all they have to offer here, and let me know what you think! What is your favorite piece? Is there something you love and you could see yourself customizing to fit with an outfit or ensemble of jewels that you already have? I can’t wait to hear what you lovelies have to say about it (I can almost promise you will not be disappointed with what you find, I know I certainly wasn’t…)!

I hope y’all have a fantastic day! And wait, don’t forget to check out their website, you’re going to love it!

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a great week so far despite this dreadful weather we are having… Today I have a special request to make from all of you beauties. As I told y’all a few months ago, my sister is currently trying to raise enough money to participate in the 2-Day AVON Walk For Breast Cancer. In order to do so she needs to have a total of $1,800 within one month after completing the walk, which is this weekend (Saturday, May 3 to Sunday, May 4!).  That means that by June 2, she needs to have all of her money collected (otherwise she has to pay it out of pocked!).

So, in an attempt to help out my big sissy, I am going to ask a huge favor of you fashionistas today… If you are able to donate anything, and I mean ANYTHING at all, to help her reach her grand total of $1,800 to help fight breast cancer, it would mean more to me than you could ever possibly know!

Plus, here comes the best part… If you donate any amount of money to help her at all, you will be entered to win any piece of lia sophia jewelry ($100 or less… Sorry ladies, I’m on a bit of a budget these days!) that you want.  The way you donate and enter to win is:

  • Go to Danielle Booth‘s page on the AVON Walk For Breast Cancer website (click here)
  • Click the “Donate Now” button (on the right hand side under the photo)
  • Fill out your information
  • Under the “Personalize Your Gift” heading, specify that you are donating and entering to win the jewelry giveaway via Style by Kristen Blair
  • Click the “Donate Now” button at the bottom of the page to submit your donation!

After you make your donation, my sister will give me your name and email address so I can enter you into the drawing.  I will let you know that I got your entry when she forwards me the info, so if you donate and don’t hear from me, please don’t hesitate to email me (at kristen.booth06@gmail.com) and let me know! I wouldn’t want you to miss out on the free jewels you could win!

So, don’t wait beauties… Donate now to be entered to win your choice of jewelry from the lia sophia catalog! It would not only mean a lot to me, but also to my sister who would be able to participate in the AVON Walk for Breast Cancer for the second year in a row!

Guest Post: Taylor Of Taylored Designs704

Good morning and Happy Wednesday beauties! Today we have a special blogger for our guest post… The beautiful Taylor of Taylored Designs704! She is a stunning southern belle, born and raised in North Carolina, with a darling blog and website where she posts super great content regularly along with selling her original jewelry that she makes by herself! She is quickly becoming one of my favorite blogs and I am looking forward to ordering some of the many things currently in my cart on her site! But, without further ado… here she is ladies and gentlemen!

Before we get into the Q&A, here is a little more about Taylor and her blog!

Taylor of Taylored Designs 704

The absolutely gorgeous Taylor of Taylored Designs704

My name is Taylor Davis.  I am a North Carolina girl, born and raised.  A true southern belle, avid sports fan, love the Lord & passionate about beading.  I love to get creative with beautiful clothes, jewelry & accessories.  I am self-taught, having learned many different jewelry-making techniques over the years. I’ve created a style that’s all my own: classic, yet effortless, natural, yet edgy, bold with color and dabbled with sparkle.  I began creating jewelry in 2005, then a sophomore in high school for juniors and seniors going to prom. I started blogging in 2013 to express my interest in fashion and to showcase my jewelry designs. I was skeptical at first but truly have a passion for combining my love of sports with fashion and my jewelry line through this medium.

Guest Blogger Series - Taylor Of Taylored Designs704

Okay, so now for the translation of what that actually means…

1.     If you were on a tight budget and could only afford one of your favorite magazines (I know, I love them all too!), what would it be? What is your favorites section/part of that magazine?

Lucky all day long! I love Lucky because I LOVE shopping. When I flip through the pages of a fresh Lucky Mag it’s a guilt free shopping spree. I just get lost in the pages and the endless style possibilities. I also love the feature they do on a super stylish celeb. My favorite issue was the Blake Lively, (explained more in question 3).

2.     If I were a shoe, I would be…

  • A Valentino Rockstud Strapped Heel. A nude heel is a classic and a wardrobe staple that I take everywhere. This shoe takes that to the next level and gives it a fashion forward edge. I love Valentino and would kill to have this shoe in every color (in both the heel and the flat), but the nude heel is all me.

3.     My fashion crush (idol, inspiration, admirer, the list could go on forever…) is…

  • Blake Lively.  She is my fashion crush because she has a true sense of style that is all her own. She is comfortable and confident in who she is and is always impeccably put together. When I feel stumped or am having one of those days when the fashion creativity just isn’t flowing, I browse some of my favorite fashion pins on pinterest and they are flooded with Blake’s red carpet and day-to-day style. The creativity immediately starts flowing.

4.     If I were stranded on an island and could only have two make-up products, they would be…

  • Mascara and Lip Balm:
    • MAC Mascara – I have to say I am pretty much a MAC snob when it comes to my beauty bag. Those little black containers fill my daily bag, my back up bag, and my empty bag that needs to be recycled for my free lipstick. I would honestly take any of their mascaras. I rotate 4-5 different ones and truly love them all.
    • Eos Lip Balm in Sweet Mint –My friends have been using it for years but I finally took the plunge when my fiance’s mom put that sweet little ball in my stocking this past Christmas. The flavor is subtle but sweet, and the balm stays on for hours at a time. It isn’t like other lip balms where I feel like I am constantly applying and applying.

 

I do not leave the house without the mascara on my eyes (I always say I look dead without it) and the eos in my bag.

5.     I keep my skin looking fabulous and flawless by… (what are your go-to products?!)

  • Clarisonic Mia 2 & Clarifying Gel
  • Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser
  • Olay shimmer moisturizing lotion (the shimmer gives my skin an extra glow)

6.     I blog because… (Tell me when and why you started blogging, and then why you continued after you initially started!)

I started blogging to promote my jewelry line. I wanted a creative way to style my jewelry and share it with the world. Now that I am into it, I find myself more interested in the fashion side than the promoting side. I still create and style my pieces into my outfits but it is an equal, 2 sided passion now. I am constantly inspired by other bloggers and aspire for my blog to be on higher levels.

7.     If I could live anywhere in the world, I would choose…

Wilmington, NC- I love the beach and everything to do with it. I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC and just bought a house of my own. I cannot ever imagine living in another state but would gladly move to the beach. Wilmington is historic, yet full of life. It is my happy place and one day (hopefully) my home.

8.     When I grow up I want to be… (If you could be absolutely anything, what is your dream/ideal career!?)

  • A well-known accessories designer. I love designing and creating fabulous jewelry. It is the one thing I do that doesn’t seem like work. I am 100% self-taught and love finding new and inspiring things. If I was nothing other than a bead store/ boutique owner in Wilmington and a local celebrity there, my work would be known and I would be happy to wake up every day at the beach doing what I love.

9.     My favorite designer is…

  • Oscar de La Renta & Chanel- They constantly catch my attention. I love the details on every garment. Chanel for the ladylike femininity and ODLR for the bold way they set the pace for the industry. The day my wardrobe holds a piece from either of these two designers will be the best day!

10.  My favorite quote is… Because… (What are your go-to words of wisdom from a fellow fashionista and why?)

  • “The best color in the world is the one that looks best on you.” –Coco Chanel

I love this quote because it inspires a sense of independence and confidence in me. Being so into fashion, I am surrounded by beautiful clothes, accessories, and women. It is easy to get carried away with following certain trends and styles and sometimes it is easy to forget to be you. This quote reminds me that just because it looks good on someone else doesn’t mean it is for me. I have to stay true to me and my favorite colors.

11.  My rock is… (Who in your life inspires you and has helped you get where you are today?)

  • My fiancé Wes. He is my biggest fan and every day encourager. I work a full time job, own my own jewelry business, blog, and work in pro sports. I have my hand in several pots and it is an understatement to say that takes up a lot of my time. No matter what I have going on, he always encourages me to follow my dreams and to work hard for whatever I want. He is my strength when I run out and my congratulations when I have a big day. I can honestly say he makes me a better person. I am more patient, loving, and understanding because I have him in my life.

12.  With the abundance of free time I have (don’t we all wish this was the case!), I like to…

  • Make Jewelry: Necklaces are my favorite and my ultimate creative expression. My bangles and tassel key chains are my most popular items.
  • Workout/Go Running
  • Get my nails done (I love nail polish and often try to do it myself, but let’s face it, they are just better)
  • Watch my shows. I have several and am completely addicted to all. (Scandal, Castle, The Mentalist, Pretty Little Liars, Downton Abbey, The Carrie Diaries, Grey’s Anatomy, Nashville, and others I’m sure I left out)

XOXO, Taylor

Okay ladies, what did I tell you… Is she amazing or what?! Well, don’t forget to check out her blog and keep an eye out for my post that is being featured today all about my favorite beauty products and my daily make-up regimen! I hope y’all have a fabulous Wednesday… Keep pushing through, we’re halfway there!
