Endless Jewelry introduces the limited edition ENDLESS LOVE COLLECTION – unique and contemporary love-infused charms to show some LOVE in a customized and very special way.  I personally am in love with these bracelets- so pretty, unique, and customizable. They are also soft and warm on your skin, and don’t jingle- which is different then nearly every other kind of jewelry out there.

“Every woman has a distinct sense of style when it comes to both love and her jewelry choices,” says Jesper Nielsen, CEO and Founder of Endless Jewelry.  “Our new Endless Love Collection offers a modern, yet totally sentimental, and very ‘gift-able’ option to find something the special women in your life will truly love and claim as her own.”

I don’t get dressed up very often, but when I do, it’s nice to have something fun to add to the outfit, something that makes it extra special, that makes me feel pretty.  Lets face it, as women, we do need to feel pretty now and again, yes?

I love to wear fun jewelry- I don’t wear tons of it, but when I do, I like what I DO choose to wear to be something a little different.  Something a little special and that will stand out a bit.

It’s nice to have a little something to make your outfits pop, something that makes you feel special and pretty. There is a great online shop called Spark of Amber ( They sell beautiful, hand-crafted Baltic Amber jewelry for all ages.

Baltic Amber jewelry is very unique, and something not found everywhere. Spark of Amber obtains all their Baltic Amber beads directly from Lithuania, where the finest Amber is found.  When I was younger, I spent some time in Lithuania, and they are indeed very proud of their amber, and it is some of the best in the world. I have some really fond memories of my time there, which makes me like this necklace even more.  But I digress.

Lulu Avenue – Spring Bling

Disclosure: The below was provided for me in order to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and honest. I am disclosing this in accordance to FTC Guidelines. Please see “Disclose” tab for more information.

I am always happy to see spring arrive. Sunshine, spring breezes, blooming flowers and the smell of freshly cut grass delight my senses and often give me a warm and fuzzy feeling. Even better than the world around me in bloom, is the knowledge that warm weather brings special events in abundance. Weddings, parties and fundraisers fill my calendar. Shopping for the outfits to dazzle my social circle is fun, but finding the right accessories used to be a challenge. As we all know, accessories can make or break an outfit.

Open Hearts Jewelry by Jane Seymour

It can be hard to find the perfect piece of jewelry, one that will go with just about any outfit and matches with many things easily.  Statement pieces are one thing- they are big and bold, and go with just a few outfits, but some people like to have a special something they can wear every day.

04 04 14 284

One necklace that can fit the bill is from the Open Hearts collection by Jane Seymour, from Kay Jewelers.  I know Jane Seymour best from the late 90’s show “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” that I loved.  I know, but it was the 90’s.  And it was a good show, shut your faces.   I’m not the only one, there were 2 movies made after the show was off the air- take that, Sex and the City!  Yeah, that’s right.  OK, moving on.  Back to the subject at hand.

Any meow.  The collection includes necklaces, rings, bracelets, charms, pendants, earrings, and more. It was created by Jane Seymour herself, and discovered by Kay accidentally.  Want to know more?  Mmmmk, never say I didn’t tell you anything good.

The Open Heart Philosophy: This philosophy was passed to Jane by her mom who believed that if we keep an open heart, love will find its way in. Jane carried this philosophy with her throughout trying times in her life. The philosophy eventually translated to Jane’s paintings and the iconic Open Heart symbol was born. From there, Jane had the first Open Heart necklace made for herself to wear and enjoy. Her personal philosophy and design made its way to the public after she was seated (coincidentally!) next to Kay Jewelers execs at an awards dinner. They noticed her necklace, asked who made it and the rest is history! The Open Heart Waves Collection is an extension of the Open Heart philosophy. It represents the idea that life is life a wave – building, cresting and releasing – allowing for continuous growth and revival.”
