Virtual Wishlist Shopping

I still  have some birthday money burning a hole in my pocket. The lovely people behind MyJewelryBox.com asked me to check out their site and tell you what I think. I figured this was a perfect chance to find some birthday goodies for myself.

MyJewelryBox.com has lots of great jewelry at varying price points. Just depends on how much you want to spend.

For $25 I could get some GORGEOUS pearl earrings.

These Freshwater Dark Green Pearl Earrings 12mm in Sterling Silver sell for $24.99!!! (retail value of $40.) I can't get over how inexpensive it is for these. The slight green tinge is so beautiful and kinda the color of my eyes. They are also unexpected in a pearl. You see white ones often but I think these green ones could be just as versatile.

For $50 I could get myself a daily wedding band!

The Ladies Comfort Fit 8mm Wedding Band in Sterling Silver  which sell for $49.99 (retail value of $110!) My wedding band is vintage and it is currently broken. It is still wearable but the jeweler warned that it will eventually break totally and it is going to cost twice what I paid in the first place to fix it. I have been considering replacing it with an inexpensive silver band until I have the disposable income to have it remade. This Comfort Fit band looks very much like Dave's and I love how wide it is. I love the idea of us having matching rings too.

And just for giggles for $100 I could get myself a name plate necklace!!!!

The Medium Personalized Name Pendant Necklace in Sterling Silver sells for $89 (retail value of $160). I would have a little left over from my $100 too! I have always wanted a horizontal name plate necklace. For my 15th birthday my parents got me one and they didn't know it and I had never the heart to tell them, but they got me a boys one. (vertical) I loved it all the same but I still even 17 years later want one. I think it might be fun to get my husband's name on it. Or Waffle my kitten! How cute would that be?


If you won $100 on a scratch ticket today what would you spend it on?

I like the name plate idea. I never got one myself, mostly because I never find Megan spelled normally.

I would definitely go buy me a date night dress. I realized I have tons of school/workish clothing but nothing really sparkly and just fun for a night out.

I'd probably put it towards one of those bags I've been lusting after. I love those pearls! Let us know what you decide on!

I love those earrings. I might just get them!

If I had an extra $100 I would get a prescription for Latisse. I would love to have longer, thicker lashes. I know it's shallow but I still want it.

I've been using neulash and it totally works!!! But it's $150 (I got a review sample) my lashes are soooo much longer and thicker. I know someone who used Latisse and her lashes are insaaaane!
