{ Mini Posts}


Happy Friday!!!

Hi girls, today I am beginning a new series on my blog! It's called { Mini Posts }, where I share quick little interesting things from my day. Such as a fun song of the week, movies that I like, restaurants and new additions to my closet. Here is the first one. I hope you guys like it. Please let me know what you think.



{ ETSY x J CREW }

Last Saturday I shared a picture of my new bubble necklace with you.
I saw this necklace a couple of months ago. I looked around and I found a fantastic one at J Crew for $150, but I didn't have the courage to spend all that money on a necklace, so when I got home I looked around on the web and found some options on eBay and etsy, including one for $18

So I decided go with the etsy one.

Here is my take on the etsy necklace:

The good - I love the necklace, the beads are really nice and the color is exactly as it was on the web and it only cost me $18.

The bad - I was a little disappointed, because it turned out that the necklace came from China. I bought it from etsy, because they specialize in local and small artists who have shops online. At the etsy site it didn't make it clear that the necklace was coming from China, Nothing against items from China, but this wasn't what I was expecting and it took about 4 weeks to get here too.

Besides that, the necklace is gorgeous and I can't wait to style it with my floral top!


Thanks for reading.
