I have never been the biggest fan of jewelry..

I was very active when I was younger so I hated wearing necklaces, I never got my ears pierced, I didn’t like wearing rings because I was always in the woods or out in the fields and I would just lose them. My love for jewelry has certainly only been present for the past few years and I have purchased a few treasured pieces that I just love wearing. I don’t wear jewelry every single day but I do love to accessorize whenever I’m going out, no matter what occasion it is for. I don’t care much for handbags, sunglasses, shawls, scarves or anything else so jewelry is the way to go for me.

When it comes to buying jewelry, I rarely spend a lot, I know I’m either going to break it or lose it either way so I try to buy as cheap as possible. I don’t enjoy mass produced either, so I mostly purchase handmade jewelry off of Etsy. It makes me feel better that I can directly support whoever created it. There’s nothing wrong with purchasing jewelry from other stores or people, I just do what I think is right. Anyways, here we go:

Amethyst cluster choker (probably not a real crystal, it is really heavy though) and a faceted glass choker, both with velvet bands. These two are my favorites and I love wearing them. Chokers do make me feel slightly claustrophobic at times but they’re both so pretty that it doesn’t really matter. Both are from sellers on Etsy.

A metal dream catcher necklace. I love wearing this, but I don’t wear it as often as I probably should. It has a tendency of turning around and that can be a tiny bit annoying when you have to turn it back again and again. I don’t really remember where I purchased this.

A chunk of tinted glass (they advertised it as some kind of quartz but it’s just glass) and a crescent moon, both from wish! I’ve been really into moon jewelry lately, been browsing Etsy for new pieces but haven’t found any that I wouldn’t regret purchasing.

A 9 piece ring set, purchased from wish for like a dollar! These are so cute and I love wearing all nine of them at the same time. They are of varying sizes so that you can have more than one on a finger (like this). I really wish my fingers were more slender and longer so that I could fit even more of them on.

And lastly I have a gold plated ring that I inherited from my grandmother when she passed away in December, and a blue faceted glass ring, a replica from the anime series Black Butler. Blue is one of my absolute favorite colors so I couldn’t resist purchasing it.

So that was my collection, for now! I might purchase some more in the future, because I’m bound to either lose or destroy some of these eventually. (Hopefully not though because I love them all).

Do you have any favorite jewelry?

β™₯ Silk Blanket Mask Gold

20170128_171310

These masks are both holographic sheet masks and they look really cool! They have holographic foil on the outside and a jelly infused silk layer on the inside. Once out of the package, this golden variety has a very strong floral scent and i didn’t really care much for that. The mask feels very heavy in your hands, mostly because of the gold foil and it feels equally as heavy on the face. It kind of felt like it was slipping downwards a lot.Β silk-gold-04

The mask contains ingredients like egg yolk, silk protein, camellia oil and royal jelly extract and is said to give gloss to your skin, to firm it, brighten it and to give moisture. You’re supposed to keep the mask on for about 10 to 20 minutes, because of the scent i couldn’t manage to keep it on for more than 10 at most. It also gave some kind of stinging sensation while i was wearing it too. After i removed it i massaged in the excess and gave it some time to get absorbed completely. My skin felt softer, it was less red than before and it felt more moisturized. I discovered after a while that the moisturized feeling was because it kind of formed a sticky film on top of my skin that refused to dry or absorb, not quite sure why that happened! But overall, it did something for my skin at least so i cannot say it was a complete waste of time.

Would i buy it again? Probably not! If the scent was different it could have been a yes!

Like the other one, this is also a holographic foil mask, and it is equally as heavy! When it comes to the scent, however, this smells more like soap and not so much like flowers so it was way easier for me to keep this on for the full 20 minutes. This silver variety does not contain egg yolk, but rather egg whites, hydrolyzed silk proteins, goat milk and peony extracts. It is supposed to brighten, moisturize and smooth out the skin, so it is a completely different formula to the other mask.Β source

While having it on, i couldn’t feel any stinging, which makes me think that when i felt it with the other, it could have been that they plump the skin to make it feel tighter. It felt like this package contained more serum than the other and the mask kept sliding down further than the other so i ended up sitting with my head tilted back for twenty minutes instead of doing office work like i normally do when using sheet masks. When i was finished i massaged in the excess like i normally do and my skin felt soft and supple and nice. I tried this mask one week after trying the gold variety just so i could see more visible differences between them. In contrast to the other, this one did not leave behind that weird, sticky film on my skin so if i had to recommend just one of these, the silver one would be the way to go!

Would i buy it again? Most likely! It yielded way better results than the previous and it was more comfortable to use.


Have you tried any holographic face masks before?
