Oh yes, I'm inventing yet another multiple blog personality, a la Holly Go Homely. I will christen her Punky Reviewster. You'll understand in a second.
wedding K-hole at the time.) And if I had limitless disposable income I would probably buy—along with lifetime subscriptions to various wine and cheese of the month clubs and the entirety of Zappos’ inventory—some nice earrings, so nice that I would be forced to resist the urge to dump them loose into my purse along with gum wrappers and crumpled dollar bills. Right?
Anyway, this intro is just to lay the groundwork for the fact that a reader named Sarah asked me if I would review her jewelry site on the blog. I am eternally grateful to all of you for reading and following and commenting, and I would love to be able to give back in some way to each and every one of you. So of course I said yes. (If you have something similar you want to bring to my attention scroll down to the bottom of this post; there are some ground rules.)
Sarah’s site is called Jewelry Art Designs, and it sells pendants, earrings and rings. Here I’ll further admit that I don’t do necklaces, rings (apart from my wedding/engagement duo) or bracelets; I am strictly an Earrings Whore. I think I just don’t like stuff dangling from any place other than my ears. Thank God I wasn’t born a dude.
The site features 14k white gold and gold jewelry set with cubic zirconia and other gems. The inventory is not huge but it seems to have something for everyone. I, for example, do not like yellow gold with diamonds; it makes me think of old ladies and the TV show Dynasty for some reason (not that both old ladies and Dynasty aren’t awesome, because they totally ARE). Also I am very pale, so warm tones don’t particularly compliment my skin. But I love white gold with diamonds; I think it looks so posh.
For example, I covet these dainty little flower earrings:
And these horseshoes. So cute!
You could wear them sideways and pretend they are ghetto Chanel logo studs.
“I could only afford one C,” you can say. “Do not hate.”
In the interest of not being a total kiss-ass, and also being honest, there are some things that are very much NOT my taste.
America is awesome, just maybe not on a ring?
Or these "Key to my Heart" earrings:
The key to my heart is not ever buying me these. Although, I bet they could double as eyebrow-taming combs and they make me think of strawberries, so they're not all bad.
Anyway, go check out Sarah’s site! It offers SPARKLY at affordable, recession-friendly prices. And if you have a site or product you need pimped by a girl who blogs about pubes, rompers, and being a general nuisance, here are the rules:
In order for me to review a product on my blog, per my agreement with BlogHer Ads (which you should click on every time you visit so I can get super rich), I cannot be given any freebies with a value greater than $40. What that means is that you can send me something for free to review only if it is hella cheap. I can buy it from you like a normal paying customer if it is more than $40, but obviously that depends on how much I like it and whether I am a hundredaire or a thousandaire that week. I can review your site, as I’ve done here, without receiving any goods, with the understanding that I can say whatever I want since you have not plied me with free stuff. Email me if you have any questions!
