New In: Spike the Punch



Despite my 4 AM mad dash to the airport, I ended up missing my flight to Halifax by literally one minute. Finally here & checked in, I figured I'd get in a quick blog post before my busy weekend! 


I'm so excited to finally show you all the latest edition to my accessory collection - a Rainey necklace by Spike the Punch! These elusive handmade beauties sell out in minutes after being posted on Etsy; in fact I've been trying to get one since the Autumn to no avail. The constant stalking was certainly worth it. When my pink + purple version arrived in the mail last Tuesday I squealed with delight. Not only was it every bit as lovely as I had imagined, it was also packaged delightfully & thoughtfully. Elizabeth, the creator & shop owner, is an absolute doll & I can't say enough wonderful things about her customer service. I'll definitely continue trying to get another colour in the Rainey, & perhaps her Addison necklace as well. My week has been such a whirlwind that I haven't gotten in an outfit post, but you can certainly expect one soon. In the meantime, I'm currently wearing my Rainey necklace to jazz up my colourful airport outfit :)

It's boarding time! Have a lovely weekend everyone :)

  16. That's awful about missing your flight. I swear there's close to nothing worse than missing a flight or having to run through the damn airport. UGH! Glad you've gotten everything situated though.
    Now, onto this GORGEOUS necklace that I didn't even know I wanted till you put up the links! haha Wow, that is a stunner. I can definitely see this as a Shawna-necklace and I'm glad you finally got a hold of one for yourself. :) I'm headed to Etsy after I leave this comment to check them out. hehe
    Also, thanks for the info on Forever 21 in one of your not-so-long-ago posts. I banned them for the 2nd time in my life and this time for good I'm sure. My hubby and I read your articles that you linked and watched some of the videos. And I reiterated a truth to myself that I've always lived by, "You get what you pay for". So it's no wonder that the few articles of clothing that I've bought from them in the last almost year has ripped or defected in some ways...it's cheap clothing and I've never been one to believe in quantity over quality, so I'm done spending money there just so I can get "more". Like you, I'll only continue to wear what I've already had in my closet from F21...or what hasn't torn yet. haha Anywho, thanks for the informative post!
