How To Remove Links From or Resize Your Linked Bracelet Watch

I have a tiny wrist, so I was aware before ordering the Jules Watch from Send the Trend that it would need to be brought to a jeweler for resizing. 

Little did I know, watch links are easily removable by anyone! Kaitlin from STT sent me instructions that called for a small hole punch and a pair of pliers. After reading through the directions, I quickly realized that this could be done a whole lot easier. With just a few modifications, I decided to give it a go.

I Love Chanel

Although I do love, want, and dream of Chanel bags, that isn't the kind of Chanel that I am referring to.

What I am referring to are my grey Chanel flats from Sole Society! Aren't they cute?

As you probably know - shoes, bags, and accessories have names (people names that is). About a month ago, a bunch of the girls and I were having a conversation about  shoes and other items that share our names. I mentioned that I've yet to see a shoe share any version of my name. Then something happened that made it seem as if these retailers were secretly members of our private groups and saw my post...

First came the Jules necklace from Belladazzle. This doesn't actually count because it was custom made for me and therefore, named after me. Thanks again Esther from Belladazzle! :)

Over at Shoedazzle, I came across a flat named Jules. Unfortunately, it wasn't very cute. Even if it was, I probably wouldn't have ordered anyway. Since I reopened my SD account a few months ago, I've only ordered two pairs of Converse and a jewelry box. One of the Converse were defective and the jewelry box was broken - I see that some things never change!

When September 1st rolled around and I logged on to Send the Trend, right there in my gallery was a beautiful watch named Jules. I was beyond excited. I immediately sent Joyce a text to let her know what I "found". We both ended up ordering it!

A New Direction

I apologize for the lack of posts lately. You would think that my current unemployed status would mean that I have more time and energy to blog, but unfortunately this has not been the case. Actually, it has been the exact opposite! Never in my life have I ever been so unmotivated and uninterested in anything and everything. Don't get worried about me or anything - it was all intentional.

When I was just 14 years old I started working. I've done everything - and I mean everything! Making cappuccino’s and espressos, scooping Italian ices, bartending, promotional work, manning a lotto machine and cash register, selling tickets at Yankee Stadium, and secretarial work are just a handful of the many hats I've worn. When I turned 27 years old this past July, I looked back and realized that I have never had more than one week off. If I quit a position it was because I already had something better lined up that I was starting immediately. I always had a job and therefore never had a break. Many times I've even worked two jobs. Then there were those times where I was working two jobs AND going to school. I won't lie to you and say it was easy because it certainly wasn't. I honestly think that pushing myself to always do so much has taken a serious toll on me. When I left my job in August, I was finally able to see this.

Is This Fashion?

Does anyone else find it kind of disrespectful of Nicki Minaj to show up at NYFW shows dressed like this?

Sparkly Shoes

A while back, JustFabulous brought us the Cassidy glitter pump in black and gold. I am not a fan of gold so without second guessing it, I went right for the black.

Both colors sold out very quickly. Those who did not purchase Cassidy hoped that JustFab would restock them. Unfortunately, it isn't very often that JustFab restocks items. The reason for this is because styles and trends are constantly changing and they try to offer new items each month based on these trends. Well guess what? Glitter shoes are a trend for Fall 2011 and Cassidy in gold and bronze popped up in this month's JustFab boutiques.

Like I said I'm not really a fan of gold, but since I can't seem to get around not wearing it (hardware on bags, jewelry, etc) I've been trying to add a little more gold into my life. So the other day I snagged a pair of the gold ones. I figure that if I don't, they will sell out and I will wish I had!

I've never really been a fan of glitter because I think that it often looks tacky. However there is something about pretty, sparkly things - we can't get enough of them!!

Below are a few pictures of my black ones.

Didn't have enough time to purchase the last Groupon deal for a $19 Shoedazzle credit? Well now there is a new one available in another city! You do not need to live in the selected city to purchase this deal.

On top of heels, flats, handbags, and jewelry now Shoedazzle has a casual line. The casual line consists of adorable sneakers (most importantly Converse brand). Every item at SD is normally $39.95, but with this deal you can order any item on their site for just $19. This price includes shipping!

If you haven't yet tried this shoe club, this Groupon deal is a great way to test out the shoe club. You won't beat this price! You need a Shoedazzle account to use this deal after you purchase it, so if you haven't yet signed up for SD you can do so here.

How to purchase and use your Groupon: You pay $19 to Groupon and they will then e-mail you a code. You must be a first time Shoedazzle buyer to use the code, if you have already purchased from SD it will not work. The code you receive must be entered in your Shoedazzle account: You can then go ahead and select the item you want to purchase and add it to your cart. Once this item is in your cart you will proceed to normal checkout. At checkout there will be an option to "apply gift card" - click that and your order should adjust to $0 and then you can place your order. That's it!
