Jewelry // milk + crown

milk + crown caron necklace

Last week, Mark purchased the Caron necklace from Kristyn’s milk + crown jewelry store as a surprise gift to me.  It didn’t turn out so much as a surprise, because he ended up having trouble figuring out Etsy and how to pay, so I ended up helping him.  Silly boy!  But it was a surprise that he remembered that I showed him that necklace!  I’m in love with it.  The necklace is so cute and classy.

The Caron necklace is the signature piece of the milk + crown store, resembling a milk crown.  It’s very elegant and adds class to any outfit.

I would highly recommend you visit milk + crown and browse jewelry, because I’m sure you’ll find something that you love!  Each piece of jewelry is so beautiful and I love looking through the pictures.  I was excited to have another piece of handmade jewelry added to my collection because I love supporting these artists.

Written by Mark: This was the very first time I bought a necklace for my girlfriend. The jewelry I bought was a simple take in elegance if that’s how I can explain it. I bought it because Mallory talked about it in passing. I can never surprise her, she always finds out or I’m just too excited so I tell her. But when I finally got her this, I was happy because I wanted to get her something she will remember me by when she goes to Japan. I love her so much.

We hope you’re having a great weekend!

Inspiration Sundays

Lately I’ve been searching through so many blogs and I’m so inspired by all the work that’s out there.  There are so many amazing and classy women out there, that I am going to strive to go in that direction.  I know I have a long way to go, but hey!  the journey is part of it.

I’ve seen a lot of blogs with a section similar to the one I’m about to start, I’ve been inspired.  Note, I am very uncreative when it comes to naming things, soooo right now it’s Inspiration Sundays even though I may not post things that are inspiring.  I will try to, but as you will probably see in a few minutes, that may not always be the case.

I’m not sure where I want this to go, so I’ll be changing it here and there as I go on.  For now, this is going to be a free for all.  I will post things that I’m inspired by, be it people, clothes, photos, anything!    Right now, I really want to change my wardrobe and be really well dressed.  I know nothing about fashion, but I’m going to slowly start trying to improve my closet.  I’ve decided that I need to start dressing better, especially since I’m going to (hopefully!) enter the work world.  Usually, I start looking good in the beginning of the school year and towards the middle/end, I just throw on some jeans and a sweater.  I look terrible by this time of year.

5.  Ruletop Linen Platforms – I will never be able to afford these shoes or anything at Anthropologie… /cries inside

4.  Chiffon dress from Forever 21 – I really like plain and simple dresses, especially black dresses.

3.  Ryan Gosling Card via Letterpress Print by greymoogiepress – self explanatory.  I have pen pals, but I always send them boring lined paper.  I need to go out and find awesome and cute stationery to write on to them.

2.  This girl is one of my inspirations and idols.  For those of you who don’t know her, her name is CL and she’s a Korean idol.  She’s the rapper and leader for the group 2NE1.  In a nutshell, she’s completely different from most Korean idols/girls which is why I love her so much.  She’s fierce, powerful, confident, different, and just purely amazing.  I will probably write about her more often, but this is one of the people in the world that I REALLY want to meet.  Like REALLY.

1.  My roommate sent me this picture on Facebook and I literally couldn’t stop laughing, which was really bad since I was in class.  Umm… yeah.  This is basically how I feel about finals week.

I’m not sure where my roommate got this picture but… HAHAHAHA

P.S.  I’m so excited that I finally get to watch Once Upon a Time with the rest of the world!!! (I should definitely be studying for finals…)
