monday.must: Invaluable Jewellery + My Jewellery Story

INVALUABLE LOGO

If my life were to have a motto, it would be “Life is too short to wear boring jewellery”. Anyone who has ever spent anytime with me would know that this is true – while my personality is cool, calm, and collected, my jewellery screams statement. Life can be monotonous and routine – there is no reason why your jewellery should be as well. Jewellery, for me, has always been a way to stand out in the crowd, compensating for ways that I don’t in other areas. Jewellery makes me noticed and gives me the confidence boost I need to get through my day. What does jewellery mean to you?

BORING JEWELLERY

When I heard about a website called INVALUABLE, which allows you to bid on jewellery (both real and costume) for fractions of their regular prices. I was beyond intrigued. Everything from bracelets, necklaces, watches, and men’s wear grace their auction site, and it’s the perfect place for someone to pick up a new trinket or two!

Now, in the spirit of INVALUABLE’s auction jewellery site, I’ve been tagged to do a “My Favourite Jewellery Post”, so without further ado ….

Confession time: my skin is rebelling.

Between clogged pores and splotchy redness, I’ve never had acne problems as bad as now. All those years I spent gloriously acne-free are now coming back to haunt me in my late twenties. My other big problem? My foundation, which perfectly covers any imperfections, sometimes wears off at the end of a long day.

At my wits end, I decided to tip my toes into colour correcting primer. This affordable HARD CANDY SHEER ENVY COLOUR CORRECTING PRIMER was my first foray into colour correcting primer and it was a definite success!

health.review: Gaiam Fitness

Kathryn’s post on fitness is the perfect way to end this week!


We all know that fitness should be an important part of everyday life. For me specifically, fitness has always been the best form of therapy. Whether it’s exercising at the gym, playing sports, bike riding, swimming or doing palates in my basement, keeping active has always kept my mind and body focused. We all know that fitness is a necessity but more so than ever there is an overwhelming push to be fit. Yes, the scientific evidence is prevalent, showing the positive effects but more so than that, like most things now-a-days, fitness has become a business. So, in such a wide-spread market of gym ads and fitness apparel stores it becomes difficult to really pinpoint quality. So, when I stumbled upon GAIAM I was overwhelmed by the quality and sheer diversity their product line offered and their mission to provide individuals with a product that they can feel good about.

film.review: Jurassic World

Kathryn is absolutely killing it with posts this week! Her following post? Flawless!


JURASSIC WORLD has had the largest box office opening in history, ousting Avengers from the number one spot!

Since the first Jurassic Park came out in 1993, I have been in love! I literally went to university to study Biology and I think a huge influence was all the times I watched Jurassic Park as a kid and still watch it now as an adult (a.k.a – big kid). So I can’t explain how excited I was to see JURASSIC WORLD…and in IMAX no less! There is no arguing that the original Jurassic Park is CLASSIC! Nothing can beat its inventiveness and sheer impact, not even CGI, surround-sound or Chris Pratt, sadly. But I definitely have to say it comes in a close second (tying The Lost World – Jurassic Park 2 in my opinion) as it works in its own right.
