Last week I received a really awesome package from my friend, and fellow beauty blogger, Carmen from Carmen’s LaLa Land. Carmen recently started her own accessories store on etsy called Je Suis Prettyful (how great is that?!) and was kind enough to send me some of her cutest items.
The first thing I noticed about the items that Carmen sent me was their packaging. Each piece of jewelry came in a small black and white striped paper bag sealed with a cute little pink sticker with the address of her website. Inside, the bag, both pieces of jewelery, came on cute little hang tags bearing the name of her company.
The first items I received from Carmen were two pairs of her 'Flower Cabochon Stud Earrings' in pink and white. Perfect for spring and summer, these earrings (at 16mm wide) are the perfect size to be noticeable without being too over the top. These earrings come in six different colours and are priced at £3.50 for two pairs.
These earrings are honestly so cute. I have seen a lot of flower bud earrings in stores this month but haven’t seen any that are as detailed as these. At £3.50, I think these earrings are a steal and I definitely plan on buying some of the other colours Carmen sells in her store.
The second item I received from Je Suis Prettyful was the 'Kitsch Nautical Anchor Necklace'. This super cute white plastic anchor comes with a 19 inch silver plated necklace and is priced at £6.00.
It wasn’t until I received this necklace from Carmen that I realized just how trendy anchors are for summer. It seems that everywhere I look from the Rachel Roy website to Forever 21 I see anchors, anchors and more anchors. As a plus sized girl, I love that this necklace is long enough to fit nicely around my neck and doesn’t choke me like some of the other pieces I’ve purchased in the past do.
From jewelry and brooches to headbands and hair clips, Je Suis Prettyful carries a lot of girly and pretty pieces. I love that Carmen took a leap of faith and started her own store, and, as she is a fellow beauty blogger, I really want to support her. I love everything she sent me and already have a cart full of other items I plan to purchase from her store in the future.
I am so thankful to Carmen for sending me these items, thanks Carmen! When you get a chance, be sure to check out Je Suis Prettyful and let me know what items you would love to own.
