So my MaeMovement bracelets came in! Remember when I blogged about them a few weeks ago? They actually arrived on my Birthday three days ago.

The bracelets are all so hugely unique and every single one is different. I ordered three bracelets from this selection:

Deep red, solid aqua, and fusia (I’m not sure why it’s not called Fuchsia).

These are the bracelets on my wrists. I won’t be pairing them together because they just don’t go well together, and of course I knew that and just had other plans for them. Like my little combo below!

I’ve paired pink (fusia) one on my wrist with this stack:

MaeMovement bracelets are sold by a Mother-Daughter duo located in the United States. They sell these fair trade bracelets made from fine glass beads which are made in Nepal. All beading is done in the comfort of their homes or on rooftop decks when they have nice weather.  A portion of MaeMovement proceeds will also help to sponsor local charities and causes through their commitment to fundraising and creating awareness.

These bracelets are made from the finest glass and sterling silver beads in the world, the bracelets are carefully hand crocheted bead by bead and reflect a cultural craft of beauty and quality. The bracelets will fit many wrist sizes as they roll onto your wrists. They come in over 900 colors and a variety of beads, from flat matte finishes to high gloss metallic’s and iridescence.

The MaeMovement business is founded on practices and principals which supports and pays fair trade wages to our artisans. This improves the quality of their lives and creates opportunities to break cycles of poverty, neglect and abuse.

If you are interested in purchasing bracelets or would like information on retail, wholesale, home parties, fundraisers, custom and bulk orders, contact MaeMovement Mother Daughter duo: Haley or Dee via facebook at Mae-Movement. Or purchase directly from their site on

I purchased these bracelets myself, and just wanted to support the great cause.

Don’t forget about my HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME Giveaway. Tons of prizes to be won:

Accessorizing your outfits

Having arm candy or necklaces can really spruce up an otherwise boring outfit. 

You can easily look put together wearing a great pair of fitted, dark wash jeans with a plain white v-neck top.You just have to accessorize those outfits of yours! It’s fun to get creative with it all.

While I do like the look of bracelets, bangles and jewelry on my wrists, I get annoyed with them banging around if they’re too big. As I pointed out previously, I have abnormally small wrists so a lot of bracelets are bulky on me and tend to not be secure and tight.

I’ve done my research and purchased customizable sized items so it doesn’t feel too big on my arm. For instance:

  1. Hello Berry bracelets (my HelloBerry review) are custom-made for your own arm. HelloBerry is sold on Etsy and they’re located not too far from me, in Toronto, Canada! When you’re purchasing which ever bracelets you wan, you just measure your wrist and tell them the size in the form. These bracelets do not have a clasp, they slide right over your hand and fit on that way. Sooo fun. I’m loving gold lately.
  2. Fossil Watches are another nice statement piece. You can create so many different looks by paring your watches up with bracelets and bangles. The watch I am wearing above, is a Fossil Stella watch in White Resin. I own the black version of it as well (see online here). Fossil’s watches are so great because they have some really nice classic pieces, as well as trendy colorful one’s as well, like rose gold or a nice teal blue. I’m thinking of getting a third watch from Fossil. I have one picked out already but I don’t want to show you unless I actually get it.
  3. Inexpensive elastic-like bracelets from Ardene.
  4. Cute statement or simple rings.

I also love incorporating scarves, cute handbags and shoes. I LOVE shoes, but I am so picky with them.

You need to check out HelloBerry

I have abnormally small wrists. Think the size of a three year old. I’ve measured, trust me. I mean, you can almost tell how small they are in the photo shown below with my friend Shannon here, when we met up at BlogHer in August.A few months ago I was browsing on the Etsy site and found another fabulous shop. Not only do I love supporting Canadian Etsy seller but the three girls who run HelloBerry are located in Toronto! So so close to me. I definitely had to order some bracelets and I’ve been sporting them for a few weeks now. Here are mine on my wrist.The good thing about the shop is that you can specify what size of bracelet you want. I got the small since I have toddler arms. There’s tons of varying sizes and colors to choose from as well as different finishes. I have two mini smoothies and a mini shake which is basically textured “gold”. You can kind of notice it if you click the image to enlarge it more.

A few of my friends have already perused HelloBerry and are thinking of picking up some bracelets for themselves, but for the rest of you who haven’t, get ready to shop your socks off!

I got my grubby little paws on the gorgeous shades of Mocha, Peach and London Fog. They don’t have a clasp, since the bracelets are made out of gimp (remember that??) they can stretch over your hand and onto your wrist. None of my bracelets have stretched out, nor has anything broken. Great little statement pieces for stacking on  your wrists. They’ve gotten quite a bit of attention when I wear them, and people comment on how they remember making gimp bracelets and key chains when they were younger.

Seriously, the HelloBerry girls have serious wrist candy style and talent in designing jewelry. I’m loving everything from their collection!
