One Necklace Four Ways

I got this necklace before Christmas from Silpada and I knew when I picked it, it would work with many different looks. I chose it because to me, it was a classic piece. Silpada really does have a wide variety of styles to choose from but I think depending on how you wear them, many of the pieces could become staples in your wardrobe for years to come. There products are in the higher end price range as far as "costume jewellery" goes but that is matched by its quality. If I am going to spend more on a piece of jewellery, I want to be sure I will be able to wear it for a long time. 

Yellow gold has always signified "classic jewellery" to me, I have always thought, "ladies where yellow gold." This piece makes me feel like a lady and it is so easy to incorporate into my existing style. Below are some images to show you a few ways that I have worn this Silpada piece. My friend Joan sells Silpada and she would love to connect with you on her Facebook page. She has a great collection of jewellery you can touch and try on when you host an event with her.

The older I get, the more focused I am on building a wardrobe that will stand the test of time and that includes my jewellery as well.

Thrift Haul

After the weather we had on Monday and all the sunshine this week, I have officially allowed myself to get a little bit excited about spring. Luke and I have been walking so much to soak up the warm sunshine. It is so amazing what sun can do for my mood after a string of grey days.

Anyways, spring weather means spring fashion and beauty, and a few weeks ago I got really lucky at the Goodwill with some pieces I cant wait to rock this spring. I have worn a few already with tights and cardis but I am dreaming of them with open toe shoes. I am a thrifter and proud of it! I thoroughly enjoy browsing the racks and hunting for items on my ongoing list of needs for my home and for Luke. I have found so many awesome toys for Luke from the Goodwill and some of my most coveted clothing pieces were gems I pulled off the rack from a secondhand store. When someone compliments one of my secondhand items I proudly tell them how much I paid for it (just a few dollars) and what thrift shop the gem was discovered in.

I am going to give away my secret but the best Goodwill to shop at in Sarnia is the one on Michigan. I am not sure if it is because the drop off area is so large or what but I always have great luck there. I like to call it the ritzy Goodwill.

Here are the items I found for myself and in addition I got a little table and two chairs for Luke in this haul, all for $34! My fav of these items is the jean dress, it will be a staple for me this summer, I just know it!

Where do you like to thrift, please comment below, I would love to hear from you.

Happy thrifting friends!

Answered Prayers

Recently I have been praying for more friends of faith "God I need some strong women of faith in my life please, who will help me to get to know You better".

Sometimes it takes me a little while to catch on to how God works, He definitely has a sense of humour. This morning as I wrote about the new friendship I formed via social media with Brittney Andreesen , it hit me square in the face, God formed this relationship. Brittney lives on the other side of Canada and we just randomly connected online through similar interests like, God, blogging and the need to create. No we didn't meet randomly, that awesome act is one only the hand of God could curate. He used all the modern technology I love like a hashtag to lead me to a new friend.

God you are awesome, help me not to forget so quickly just how awesome you are.

Brittney kindly interviewed me and featured me on her blog, I am honoured! Please check it out and take a wander around her website to see the other cool work this Creative Producer and Blogger is doing!

Thanks be to God!
