Featured Sponsor: Anjolee
When I was first approached to work with Anjolee I was a little uncertain because aside from my lovely engagement ring I prefer quirky and unusual jewelry to classic diamond pieces. But I have to say after looking at their website I think I may be a diamond convert. Their pieces are so classic but with a twist like this mixed metal diamond bracelet with a diamond hive-like pattern.
Anjolee has style imaginable on their website. From classic diamond hoops earrings to intricate pendants like above to engagements ring to red carpet style jewelry to gemstone jewelry. You could spend hours looking at the wide selection they have, dreaming of buying yourself a gift or maybe getting someone you love to buy you a gift!
The best thing about Anjolee though is that everything can be completely customized! Say you want a pair of diamond hoops you can the pick the type of metal, diamond quality and carat weight. You get complete control over the look and cost of your piece. You could spend hours looking at pieces and changing around the style, especially when you look through the gemstones and changing out the gems from garnet to topaz to emerald.
Plus this is the perfect place to find your engagement ring; personally this princess cut diamond ring is definitely my favorite (are you paying attention Hubster?). I love the setting of this ring, it’s so high so the diamond really is in the forefront.
An important part of selecting sponsors for me is knowing I am supporting a ethical business with philosophies that coincide with my own. Anjolee only uses diamond that correspond with the Kimberly Process of conflict free diamonds and has a commitment to green manufacturing process.
I definitely recommend taking a browse through the Anjolee website and play around with the customization option. Enjoy!

Shapes Over Styles
I just to have a certain style, when I was a teen I was, well, a punk kid. Can you believe it? I’m a little embarrassed. Anyway, the point being that I only wore punk style clothing like ratty jeans, studded belts, band tees and the like. I didn’t care so much about fit or shape. Now I base all my clothing decisions on shape and fit. I usually select dress that fit on the top and flare on the bottom to cover the parts of myself that I’m unhappy about (hello thunder thighs). I think that has been my biggest lesson in style. I don’t get hung up on things like whether I think I can pull off the bohemian or glam or retro or sporty look, I embrace all sorts of look as long as the fit is right.
Isn’t that pup the cutest?
How do you guys feel about this? Do you go for a certain look first (quirky or conservative or mod) then worry about fit or are you looking for great shapes first?
