Let's get to the mushy stuff first. Thank you is not even big enough. You guys! Oh my word. The texts, comments, tweets, emails, Instagram notes, FaceTime and phone calls made my day. Never in all my years have I felt so much birthday love. I was sky high all day just from simple wishes. I know everyone is busy with their own lives, so it meant the world that people even stopped for a few seconds to say, "Happy Birthday". The bizarre thing, but spectacular nonetheless, is that over half of the love came from friends that I have made through blogging. Hey bloggers of the world, we are onto something. It's quite the little ginormous community. And to my IRL friends and family, I love you and would not be where I am today if I didn't have each of you to celebrate the years with me. Okay, mush talk over.

Onto bigger and better things....

So, I was saying 2.2 seconds ago, being a blogger and/or reading blogs is a pretty big deal. It's full of information, friendships, engagement, knowledge, opportunities, making connections and of course learning about the best places to shop to spend our hard earned money.

This brings me to the next topic of discussion, Lilac Bijoux. If it weren't for being in the blogging realm, I would have never heard of one of the best accessory/jewelery boutiques I have come across.

I have actually become personal friends with one of the owners and she not only has a serious eye for style, but she is as real as they come.

I own a few necklaces from Lilac Bijoux including the one in today's post and the quality surpasses any other piece in my crazy, absurd jewelry collection.

We all know that clothes alone will not complete an outfit. It takes a few accessories and pops of pizazz to really get the party started and Lilac Bijoux can help all my sisters out.

I mean, look how boring my style would have been today without this bold statement necklace, a bright clutch and some leopard print pumps.

They have an eclectic mix of product styles and price ranges. And because I blog, I feel like it is my duty to share Lilac Bijoux with you. I have selected a few of my favorites pieces from their online shop that I thought you will fall in love with too.

I have that necklace but I got it from Groopdealz...I wonder if they went thru this site? I love the necklace and it is my first "statement" necklace...Love the way it makes simple jeans and a tee shirt look so fancy!!
Your black background is beautiful for the necklace :)

Alice Warren said...

Sounds like you had a fab birthday Shanna!!!

I agree 100% that accessories can transform a boring outfit to fab! You hot mama is in a HOT outfit!! I've been wanting the J Crew version but hesitant to spend the $$ for it.

So glad you had such a wonderful birthday- and so well deserved. Since I started reading you and blogging you have been a favorite of mine and it's because you are so talented, beautiful but also because you establish a connection with your readers. That is something a lot of bloggers don't know how to do.

And yes, I will be checking out lilac boutique right now!

Oh my stats that top right pair of earrings is amazing!! Hope you had a great bday and love this look!! I've always been so fond of black and have wore that same necklace with my black top a couple times. One of my favorite looks. Now I'm on a color craze though haha. Can't believe I actually use to only wear black. Lol.

Niki Caron said...

I LOVE your necklace! And of course the way you styled it! You look gorgeous (although you could wear a trash bag and look amazing).

I hope you had a wonderful birthday! xoxo
