100 Beautiful Days

IMG_5857

If you remember this post, on June 6th I started 100 Beautiful Days (based off the popular 100 Happy Days trend).  I missed my ‘Video a Day‘ project, so I gave into the ‘Picture a Day’ idea.  What I learned throughout these 100 days is priceless, as cliche as it may sound. I learned to take care of ME.  I learned to put MYSELF first.  Unlike the Video a Day, which could be positive or negative, for my 100 Beautiful Days, I wanted my pictures to be something beautiful, something I loved.  If the day was drawing to an end and I hadn’t done something to make myself happy (and snap a photo), I made sure to change that.  Even if it was something as simple as going to my favorite coffee shop (La Colombe of course) or taking a break from studying to walk my dog; I made sure to do something for ME. God has used the last 100 days to transform me, and I can’t wait to see what this year has in store! I can’t upload the video directly to wordpress, but  if you click here you can watch it!

Love Always,

Intrinsic Journeys

I’ve had the honor to get to know Jessica over the last few weeks; I truly feel that fate brought us together, she is one of the most inspiring people that I have come across. After finding Intrinsic Journeys  on Etsy, I told Jessica my wrist measurement, some styles & colors I liked; she read my mind and created the most perfect piece for me.  Her stackable bracelets are made with healing gemstones and unique charms.  My bracelet had the Tree of Life charm; the Tree of Life is a symbol of growth and to me represents how every situation in our life, good and bad, grows us.  The beads on the bracelet are absolutely gorgeous, the pictures can’t do them justice. Jessica also surprised me with an amazing hand-stamped Life is Beautiful necklace; knowing that someone specially made this necklace with me in mind meant the world to me AND it is beautiful; I have worn it everyday since I’ve received it!

In Jessica’s card to me she said, “Each time you pick up a feather, it is a reminder that you are on the right path and that your life is sacred again.”

Available in Black or Brown and a wide variety of quotes, these are definietly a must have. Serenade Jewelry also sells amazing handmade necklaces. In need of soap, lotion or even a candle?  Check out Serenade Jewelry’s sister shop, Serenade Naturals.

La Vie Est Belle by Lancome

LaVieEstBelle

Lancome’s newest fragrance is called ‘La Vie Est Belle‘ or ‘Life is Beautiful’. I’m going to stick with my belief that Lancome named this fragrance after my blog, haha! Not only do I love the name, and the design of the bottle, this perfume also smells divine!

Love Always,

Amy Elizabeth
