Nw Yr’s Resolution: the shiny edition!

I know what’s been on all y’all’s minds for the last month & a half…. WHAT is D’s New Year’s Resolution this year???!?!!!?!

Well, the reason I never posted it is b/c I actually never even made my resolution. I’m being more conscious to look better. Like doing my hair (instead of just pulling it back), and I bought a few new cute outfits. Since the break-up, it’s really important for me to LIKE what I SEE in the mirror when I look at myself.

I bought a new mascara that I love, love, LOVE! My bff-Sparky recommended it to me, & now they started makin it in waterproof, so I’m all over it. But it’s not all over me… hahaha… I know, corny, but I crack myself up so it’s ok.

I know this has been the most fascinating post so far, huh?

Anyway, here’s my New Year’s Resolution this year (drum-roll~ da da da da da da daaaaa):
Yup, that’s right. I’m gonna make it a point to sparkle more. Whenever I go out. Here’s what I got so far towards my New Year’s resolution (ring on the left).

It’s a HUGE cocktail ring, Swarovski Crystal. Last summer, a gal I met had a set that looked similar to this (to the right), but it was all clear crystals. I couldn’t validate spending more than $150 on a ring right now. But I have to have something bright & pretty & shiny & sparkly; esp now that I can’t wear my sparkly diamond ring anymore.

So, I’m vowing to wear jewelry more now. I used to wear jewelry all the time in high school. I never left the house without a necklace & earrings on. But in college, I lost that, and now I rarely wear a necklace or earrings. But my resolution this year is to be more sparkly, so I plan to wear it often.

What better way to kick this off than to buy what my mom is referring to as a huge tacky/gaudy ring?

Next up? Well, Sparky emailed me a pic of a gorgeous ring she’s been eyeing (ring on left). And I went to the site & found THIS (yllw earrings)! I know, puuurrrtty. (these last two pics I’ve hyperlinked to the site where you can find them, so you too can look at purty, shiny, sparkly stuff!)

  1. You cannot believe how happy I am that someone else understands my humor!!! I’m glad I’m not just one of those crazy ppl that walk down the street laughing/giggling, & no one gets why they find stuff so funny.

  2. so you DID buy it? that thing is massive! you should tell people it’s real….except for muggers. Tell them it’s fake so they won’t take it. Now i have to get my green piece of love. sigh….maybe i’ll get a valentine and they’ll buy it for me. all my pennies are going to a moving truck right now. :/

  3. I bought that big hunk of clear Swar crystal, & it is magnanimous! But sparkly.

    Ouuu… sparkly.

    You have 24 hours to get yoself a V-tine. Ready? And GO!

  4. I love the blue ring, though I don’t wear much blue.

    I think it’s a great idea to go back to waering jewelry and being “sparkly”, it makes you feel more that way.
