Isn't this a pretty necklace (11173)?
It's currently on sale for $100, and may even qualify for the EXTRA30 that's good through 1/28/09. However, I saw it in person and wasn't impressed. Resin = plastic and I just don't feel it is worth $100, not to mention $150. I tried it on and it's far too big for me. If you feel you must get it, the pink is pretty. And the saffron is good because there are 2 colors. The golden avocado doesn't have enough contrast between the 2 colors used in that version. Pass for me.
Remember the bubble necklace (92687)?
I see that it went all the way down to $69.99 from $150. Not that you can get one since they are sold out and like to leave images online to tease us. I thought the turquoise (no longer pictured on site) was pretty, but I never pulled the trigger because it seemed too large. I am small & have a smaller torso. None of this matters to me because I found the following bubble-esque necklace at Target:
J Crew turtleneck
J Crew boot cut jeans (08)
J Crew Carrie coat
Well, yeah...resin = plastic on this one, but THIS one was only $3.74! Marked down from $14.99. I purchased the same one in green ($3.74)and a turquoise one ($14.99) that's a bit different, but the same idea. I'll have to post the turquoise one for sure in the near future. I recommend a walk through the accessories dept at Target. They are really trying to 'do something' up in there.

Happy New Year!
The icon above is from dryicons.com. I'm pretty sure it's a free icon. If you want to use it commercially you have to pay, etc... At any rate, it gives a pretty good depiction of how I feel at times and how I was feeling particularly around the holidays. On one hand I was feeling blue and trying to shield myself from that. On the other hand, I felt like so many things were blooming in my life and going great. I admit that I was getting stuck in a rut of mindless shopping. I was not in control. At all. It was great to step away and begin to drill down to what was causing the compulsive and obsessive feelings I had at times. I'm still working on it, but I feel less obsessed and that's the most important thing.
At the current time I don't have plans to post daily or with any specific regularity. If I post, I post. If I don't, I don't. I definitely don't want to go into b&ms as much as before. As a result some of my posts may be old news, but I will still try on and photograph items when I can.
Hope your year has started off great & that you visit from time to time!
