Elle&Blair Jewelry Set!

Hey everyone! As you know, Elle and I are kinda obsessed with Jewelmint! We’ve featured them in several videos because we can’t get over how fun the concept of the site is, and how amazing the jewelry actually is. For those of you who don’t know what Jewelmint is... here’s a quick re-cap: is an exclusive site for members only (it’s free to sign up!) and it’s a jewelry club by Kate Bosworth and Cher Coulter. When you first sign up, you get to take a really fun style quiz that helps them get to know your personal style and what you wear in day-to-day life... that way they can pick out jewelry for you that you can wear with what you already own and love! If you choose to - you can pay $29.99 each month and they will pick custom pieces to go with your style, you choose your favorite, and they send it to you... FREE SHIPPING! Returns are super easy, but I’m sure you’ll love your item. & I always get asked if you have to return the piece at the end of the month to get a new one - NO! It’s yours to keep forever! You can skip a month if you don’t like any of the jewelry they selected for you and won’t be charged, and you can end your subscription at any time without any hidden fees.
Well, Jewelmint saw how excited my sister and I were about the site... and they asked if we wanted to create an Elle&Blair set. What kind of question is that?! Yes, please!!! They let us pick out our three favorite pieces from the month of February and said we could have an exclusive link to give to you guys where you get ALL three pieces for the price of ONE! That’s $29.99 for three pieces! Typically it would be $109.99 for all of them. (& they’re really adorable pieces.)
This promo only run until Monday night at 12midnight (the last day of February.) You can view it by going to:
We picked three pieces that could be worn together if you wanted, but could also be split up for an added pop to any outfit. They’re perfect for spring! You get a Blazing Chain Bracelet that goes perfectly with the color-blocking neon hues for spring, and pearl ring pendant that looks kind of antique and Elle and I will be sporting for quite some time, since it will never go out of style. & Amazing Versailles earrings that will add some serious glitz to ANY outfit! The quality of the jewelry is outstanding.
So let me know: do you like the pieces Elle and I paired together for our first ever Elle&Blair set?! What would you wear it with? Can't wait to see what you come up with!

P.S. Thank you Jewelmint for giving Elle and I such an awesome deal to share!

HELP! I need your opinion...

Hey everyone! I'm so excited because my room is almost ready for a room tour :) All I have to do is hang the curtains, paint the walls, and put up the artwork. Well, if I'm being honest, all I have to do is find someone to help accomplish these tasks. I've been going back and forth on what I want to do about my bed. One picture? Two? Four? I finally decided how I want to decorate above my headboard....
A wall quote! Awesome, right? No. I can't decide which quote to choose. It's not only something that I'll read multiple times a day, but it will be in the background of my videos. I want a fun, cute, inspirational quote. I've narrowed down the list and need your help to pick the winner. Please read the following quotes and comment with your favorite! (You don't have to have a blogspot to be able to comment. Anyone can!)

Quote #1: "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain"
I like this one because it's not only inspirational and cute, but I'm someone who likes to have everything planned out. When things don't go by the book or my schedule, I freak. I need to learn to "dance in the rain" or just live in the moment. This quote will definitely remind me to do just that.

Quote #2: "Be the change you wish to see in the world."
This is a really common quote, but I think every time I look at it, it will remind me to be a good person and.. to be the change I wish to see in the world! I also think it would look really good in a pretty font over the bed and in the back of my videos.

Quote #3: "Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself."
When I first read this quote it hit me hard. With out getting too into detail, a lot of people have misconstrued thoughts about me. It used to really bother me and I felt the need to defend my every action, every word, every move. I recently learned that I know who I am, and the people I love know who I am. I don't have to constantly prove myself to others. This quote really symbolizes that and I think it could help some other people who are going through the same thing if they catch a glimpse of it in my videos. Everybody is judged by one person or another, but you know who you really are inside.

Quote #4: "Even a small star shines in the darkness"
You don't have to be famous, be the prettiest person in your class, or be the best jock. You don't have to get straight A's, dress the best, or have the most friends. You don't have to be the best at what you do. You just have to have fun doing it! Everyone's important. Everyone needs the same thing. Everyone has feelings. Everyone's a star. I also like this quote cause it's going over a bed.. and you sleep at night with the lights off. "Stars" and "darkness" haha get it? Nevermind....

Quote #5: "A dream is a wish your heart makes"
I love this quote and it's from my moms favorite movie. I now live hundreds of miles away from her, maybe even thousands.. and I miss her. This way I could have a little piece of her with me in my new home. It's also about dreaming, which I think is quite appropriate.

Quote #6: "Don't worry about the world coming to an end today... it's already tomorrow in Australia"
This is obviously the silliest one, but it also reminds us not to live in fear. Something I'm not too good at. I'm a self-proclaimed "scaredy-cat." I think when I look at this quote, it will not only put a smile on my face, but it also symbolizes that everything will be okay.

Quote #7: "We don't remember the days... we remember the moments."
Just like quote #1, it reminds us to live in the moment, in the now. I like #1 better, but I think this may look prettier above a bed and it gets the same message across.

So what do you think?! Comment with your favorite quote number and help me out! The sooner I choose my favorite, the sooner I'll order it, hang it up, and do a ROOM TOUR! Also, feel free to leave your own cute, inspirational quote. Now that you see what I'm looking for, you all may be able to come up with an even better one.
