Shiny pretty fings

I am so sorry for being MIA for so long! I had several posts lined up but then couldn't find to finish them after things got extremely busy at work. Seriously, I thought things couldn't get busier at work but they did. Not only that, but the bf and I have also been running around the past week looking at model homes and such. We were almost about to put an offer on a house but ended up not doing so...mostly due to the location. The problem with Toronto is that if you want a nice, medium sized home that is brand new there isn't really many locations to choose from, especially if you are on a budget. Since the location isn't going to work out and we are indeed on a budget I guess we're down to looking at other options such as condos / townhomes.

Anyway this is something I've been meaning to post for ages - a belated peek at my order from Worship at the House of Blues!

I was almost reluctant to open it because the wrapping & ribbon looked so pretty...but I had to see the contents :) Yasumi very kindly included some extras, a sample of Albion Exage powder (yay!) and a My Beauty Diary mask, it looks like a cherry blossom version (awesome because I haven't seen this version in Canada yet).


First up was the Pacifically Tenshas necklace, isn't it lovely? Feels so summery :D


What got me were the tensha beads and the Swarovski pacific opal rounds:


The other piece was a surprise which I was been super excited to see! I had been asking her about possibly doing a feminine, princessy bracelet, maybe with a Jill Stuart vibe and she concocted this piece for me sight unseen as a surprise:


Isn't it gorgeous? I love the colour combo of silver pearls + pink crystals + tiny, delicate pearls! Not only that, I can't get over how the design of the bracelet is so unique!



On my wrist:


Honestly what she came up with here was pure genius :D Thank you so much Yasumi, I love it! :D

Thanks for reading and please stay tuned...particularly the Canadians, because I do have a contest coming up in the next few days! :)

Gorgeous bracelet!
ahhh home buying.
friend was looking into buying a house with her BF too, but they ended up with a condo as well :T mainly cause her boy is on a small contracted job, hence not stable enough to actually jump into the house market, plus he could be relocated :T
but meh, her condo rocks, and condos are nice cause you don't need to deal with the lawn maintenance and such right XD
