Why You Should Be Buying Jewelry
Start writing a post

We've all heard the phrase "diamonds are a girl's best friend", but where do the diamonds usually come from?

Most of my jewelry came from birthdays and other gifts and although they can be personal, it might not mean much to you. But buying it for ourselves can mean much more.

When To Buy

Buying jewelry can be very expensive, especially if you have expensive taste. Choose a time that has felt like it's been important to you or when you're planning a new start. When you're buying it, have an idea of a time or beginning of time you want it to represent. When you buy a piece of jewelry to represent a new beginning, it reminds you of it. Every time you look down at it or look in the mirror, it will remind you of your journey.

What To Buy

I am a very big fan of rings. Whenever I want to buy a piece of jewlery, I usually buy a ring because I know I won't use a necklace or a braclet as much as I'll use a ring. So when you're buying, think about pieces you use the most. Will you use earings? Or would you rather put a necklace on? Make that decision before you look.

Now that you know what you want to buy, think about how much you'll use it. Some people don't like to wear jewelry regularly and wear it on a special occasion. Some people, on the other hand will wear jewlery every single day. So if you wear it every day, you might want to invest in something that won't break or fade easily.

Why To Buy

Jewelry can represent so much for people. In most families, jewelry is passed down from generation to generation, it's nice to have something new in the loop. It's also nice to keep the jewelry to remember when you're older. Each piece holds a meaning. Each time you look at it, you will be reminded of when you bought it, why you bought it, and what it ment to you when buying it.

Keep In Mind....

Jewelry can last forever, so I recomend looking into what you're buying. If you would like, look up what some stones that are put into jewelry can mean. Some mean freedom, friendship, new beginings, and so much more. So if you want to, make its as personal as you want.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.
