I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels.

..but you gotta admit, Jewels ARE fun! 

I spent the day with my bestie Zakariya yesterday. We had lunch at Cafeteria and then made our way into a few stores to search for my mom's B.Day gift. ...Luckily, we were both able to find something without getting a headache. & while shopping for her, I of course found a few goodies for myself. 

For some years now, the only earrings that I've been wearing are a pair of diamond studs that my mom lent me, but never got back [lol]. & they're quite discreet. Statement rings, and necklaces, I've always had a thing for - but never dared to get bold with ear pieces.

That is, until now! 
Chandelier earrings? ...me? - I've always thought they were too "I wanna be Beyonce" but after trying these on I couldn't leave them behind. & it's mostly because they mesh well with my shaved sides. The hair gives rocker. & the earrings give Priss [or is that me?]. ...either way - these are my new favorite things. 
[I soo see them with a loose white button down [tied @ the waist, maybe] w a pair of light blue Boyfriends <3 ...it's the ultimate laid back look. The earrings will have no choice but to ARRIVE.]

Well actually, it's a tie between my earrings and new rings. 
[I apologize for the picture quality. ..promise to invest in a better comp cam]

FotF: I usually find great rings at street vendors! ...sometimes they're poorly priced but there are those times when u can wink an eye and get a hefty reduction lol.

I do love how those work with the shaved sides, I'm a stud girl myself, but sometimes I feel a little spicy. That bow ring, LOVE.
