I don’t know about you, but 2016 was a long, difficult year for me. There have been a lot of extended family issues to deal with and the cold and flu season has hit my family uncharacteristically hard in recent months. It’s been a bit hard to find the beauty in the world around me, and it’s definitely taken its toll.
Chrysmela Catch Earring Backs are helping me feel more confident while wearing the beautiful (and expensive) earrings that were a gift from my husband again. I haven’t worn them often because I was worried the regular earring backs would slip off and I’d lose the earrings.
This miracle product is the best thing since sliced bread. Seriously, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been out and about around town, at family get-togethers or at formal functions for my husband’s business and reached up to check on my earrings only to find one gone. It’s gotten so bad that I’m afraid to wear my nicer, more expensive earrings and find myself opting for pretty costume jewelry most of the time.
This beautiful emerald necklace and earring set permanently reside in their original boxes in a drawer at my home. I rarely wear them because I’m so afraid of losing them. They were a gift from my husband and just the thought of having to tell him they’ve been lost is enough to give me anxiety.
But, now, I can wear (end enjoy) them without that fear because the platinum Chrysmela Catch earring backs that I have on them now are very secure, keeping me from constantly checking to make sure they’re still securely in place!
The platinum set is a perfect compliment to my emerald earring set. I’ve also been using the yellow gold earring backs with the Infinity Pearl Jacket Set (pictured at right of photo below) with some simple, inexpensive stud earrings. They’re not set in gold, but I love how the Chrysmela earring back and that dangly accessory totally jazzes up this simple set of studs.
In addition to Platinum and Yellow Gold, you can also get the Chrysmela Catch earrings backs in Rose Gold.
The technology behind these small wonders is so simple, I can’t believe no one ever thought of it before. It uses a very simple spring to secure the backs to your earring posts. Can you see what looks like a disc there at the rear of the backs? You simply slip your fingernails into that groove and tug a bit to release the spring and allow the backs to slide off the earring post. Otherwise, that back is going nowhere!!
They can be used on their own or with the Infinity Pearl Jacket Set you see on the yellow gold set to give extra support for heavier earrings (to prevent earlobe droopage). You can get the supportive discs without the pearl drop, too, when you order Chrysmela Extra. The backs simply snap into that support disc. For a visual demonstration, definitely give this short video a view!
Also, I’ve been getting more and more into inspirational sayings and quotes, lately. That’s why I’m really appreciating I Choose Beauty™‘s line of products that feature words of wisdom in beautiful designs and colors.
Sometimes life just seems hard and it can be difficult to take a step back to recognize the good things all around us. I love the Breathe Tote because it reminds me to take a moment and just be still. Because I’m on the go all the time and always like to take a book or crochet/knit project everywhere with me, this is the perfect way to remind myself to slow down no matter where the day takes me.
On occasion, I find myself lamenting the fact that I’m getting older, my children are growing up and that recent drama has caused some issues with extended family. I try to stop, take a breath, and focus on the good moments whenever possible.
Now, I’m reminded of this practice every time I have a cup of cappuccino when I use my Be Happy With Now Mug. I have a fairly eclectic set of favorite mugs, one for every mood, it seems. One is a solid cream color that features a textured surface that looks like knitted cabling and another favorite is one I made on some website somewhere that I added a favorite Calvin & Hobbes comic strip around the outside. They’re all personal and fun, and this happiness mug will fit right in with the rest of the collection.
You will find many fashion and home goods featuring wise, calming phrases from clothing to framed prints and many items in between. And I Choose Beauty inspirational items are a constant reminder that life is always good, even when it’s hard.
How are you finding your happy place in the world today?
