I read the book Dominion, which sounds like a Shades of Grey type of novel, but was instead a book about a fictional alternative outcome to World War 2. The novel centers around a British spy and how he, and others, kept sensitive information out of German hands. 

I enjoyed reading Dominion, although at times I found it slow. When I first read the description of the book I imagined a much more violent and oppressed occupied England. Instead, what was portrayed was rather bland. It seems unrealistic to think that the Germans would have been tame immediately after winning the war. 

I think there was a lot that could have been done with this topic and unfortunately CJ Sansom did not reach that potential with Dominion

It's been a while since I've said these words - but I would skip reading this novel.

Wrenn Jewelry

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Since purchasing my long druzy necklace from Lemon Sweet Jewelry I have become obsessed. Through my cousin's Instagram prowess we found Wrenn Jewelry - a site chockfull of druzy goodness. 

I was particularly drawn to Wrenn Jewelry's earrings and rings as I own a druzy necklace already. I couldn't be more thrilled with my statement ring purchase. It fits great on my pointer finger, and since receiving it, I've worn it everyday. The earrings, on the other hand, are incredibly small - minuscule to say the least. And while I hate to say anything negative about an independent shop, the photos of the studs are incredibly misleading. While the earrings are very small, I am enjoying wearing them. It's no big shocker that black earrings with rose gold trim go with everything.

For Christmas I predict that at least one or two more rings from Wrenn Jewelry will be on my list. 
I also have my eye on the heart initial bracelet. 

Here's to hoping that these goodies are in my stocking come Christmas morning!

Ebony Skull

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

I am drawn to all Western inspired clothing and jewelry. When I spotted this Chaser tank online it was a no brainer to purchase. I was also pleasantly surprised to discover that the horns of the skull are made of black sparkles! 

Sparkles and frilly arm holes?
I'm in love.
