Hello, everyone! It's Wednesday, and that means I've been browsing through Etsy to show you some of my favorite items! This week I thought it'd be awesome to do a post of a variety of things that sparkle. Now, I'm not really a girly-girl--(you'll usually find me in stretch pants, messing around with power tools for my crafts, etc)--I've got some rough edges..haha. Enjoy this week's roundup :)
Item #1 is from MissVioletLace
Unicorns are all the rage today and in recent months--maybe because of their mystical nature, their uniqueness. This is a shimmer water that illuminates the skin. It also has a sweet scent and is made with organic extracts. Its purple color comes from purple carrot extract and spirulina. With this your skin will be soft and sparkly like that of a unicorn's magic horn.
Item #2 is from HandmadebyTN
I am loving the idea of a glittery phone case on a rose gold iphone. The red and gold glitter on this case is a combination of both fine and chunky glitter. I'll have to say I like the chunky glitter--maybe because it's impossible to clean up the fine glitter. The chunky glitter definitely adds some more visual interest. The case is a gel bumper which allows it to flex to put on and for easy removal. I like the flexible kind because I always feel like I'm going to break the non-flexible ones! The glitter on the case does not move from where it is pictured. The case and glitter have been sealed to prevent any loss of sparkle.
Item #3 is from waterwaif
Even if these are faux druzy earrings, they are still gorgeous! They are acrylic, so they're light weight, and the posts are stainless steel--no allergies! I love how sparkly they are, and I'm sure that they catch the light very well. They'd be perfect for topping off an outfit.
Item #4 is from VowWowDecor
What a better way to add a little sparkle to your house that a sequin pillow! It would definitely add a little more happy to your space just like the listing says! I'm totally loving this champagne blush color, but if you want something different, this pillow cover comes in a number of colors--34 to be exact (I think I counted the list correctly..haha). You also get sequins on both sides of the pillow case; it's definitely a plus considering you usually only get one side with the design on most things nowadays.
Item #5 is from Eternity31
I think this set of earrings is pretty neat. Part of them is glittered, and part is not--it's something a little bit different, and I like it. The part that doesn't have the gold foil has a nice sparkle to it. This set would be great to wear to a number of occasions and, really, you could wear them daily.
Item #5 is from SimplyPRINTly
I love having little bags like this around! I probably would think of this bag as more for containing jewelry when you're travelling, but I think it would also work well for makeup or other little items you'd want to keep together whether for travel or for everyday things. It's made out of canvas material, so it is definitely durable. On the inside is a silky lining. If you'd like a different color fabric, you have a choice of black, white, and beige--Personally, I think the beige would be the best because you'd be able to see most colors on it and it would not get dirty as quickly as the white would. Life gets messy sometimes, and it's best to be prepared.
Item #7 is from LindseyDecor
I think this little dish is so cute! You always need little dishes around the house to put something even if it's just for holding your rings when you're washing your hands. I really like the quote on it--very appropriate for jewelry, but not specifically for jewelry only ;) This would be a great gift for a variety of occasions and something most ladies would love.
Item #8 is from BossStudiosJewelry
I'm loving how understated and gorgeous this ring is! For most cases, less it more. Each of the glittering spots are actually where the metal was burnished. Burnished means that the areas were polished to create a shiny finish. When I first looked at the ring, I really thought the spots were little diamonds. I really like that the majority of the ring is a matte finish, which allows for the shiny spots--I think that's what makes this ring stand out.
That's all I have for you this week on this super-sparkly Wednesday! I hope you have enjoyed looking through all the items and gotten some ideas for things you might want or might give to someone else. Now, make sure to head on over to your favorite handmade site and show some artists some love! (If you have any ideas for an upcoming Weekly Wednesday, please feel free to drop me a line in the comments!)
