Hi everyone, I am super excited to share a little bit about why I wear inspirational jewelry. I know I have been a little MIA from my blog recently but if you follow me on my social media, I announced that my mom and I are opening a women’s clothing boutique called Poppy Avenue Boutique on February 4th, 2017. This adventure is a God-given dream and I am so happy to get up in the morning and pursue this business. However, my life has been turned upside down this past year trying to get this business up and to a point where I can officially open the doors. There have been so many twist and turns. Some days I just wanted to curl up in my closet and cry out of frustration and others I was crying tears of joy over God’s pure goodness. Through this messy grace journey of opening a women’s clothing store one of my favorite verses in the bible that illustrates a concept beyond just the clothes we wear is in Proverbs 31:25. It states,
She is clothed in strength and dignity and laughs at the days to come
Beyond the clothes you wear, everyday we have the opportunity to cloth ourselves in grace, love, laughter, creativity, kindness, boldness, sassiness, and generosity. These are the attributes that truly make an outfit complete. Therefore, one of my favorite jewelry makers Creative Carmella painted a pendent that reminds of this journey I have been on the past year. Ultimately, I love wearing this pendent because it is a wonderful daily reminder of how we perceive this life we have been granted.
- Embrace the beautiful and messy life you have been given. These are the words that appear on the pendant, which makes it a perfect daily reminder to slow down and enjoy the good and “not-so-good” times of this life that God has gifted to me. I love wearing her inspirational jewelry because the meaning literally holds close to my heart. Her jewelry is so dainty and unique. She no longer has a full time shop open on her website since she is taking a break to spend more quality time with her family, however, follow her on Instagram for her surprise pop shops featuring necklaces that bloom with inspiration.

Ultimately, we are called to embrace this beautiful messy journey called life no matter the circumstances. In the mean time between my next post you can follow me on my social media for more inner beauty and fashion tips.
