because i never wear bracelets {{christian bling review & giiiiiiiiiveaway}}

christian bling bracelet

I am not a bracelet person. I’m not even really a necklace person. I’m kinda into earrings but usually wear the same ones all the times. I do love rings, but only wear my wedding ring set.

I became a bracelet person when I saw what Mary had to offer over at Christian Bling. Really truly OOOOH loooooove this one and this one and especially this one.

So when she sent it to me, I squealed. I let out a little piggie sound from my mouth to the surprise of my attending children.

Mary and I chatted a few months back at the Edel Gathering and her unique jewelry company is a blog sponsor! Read our interview here. She’s so kind and loves affording ladies the opportunity to do home sales of quality christian jewelry pieces.

My morning starts with nursing the baby in bed as he falls in & out of sleep, followed by having SuperBoy bound into our room with great enthusiasm at 7:01am, and watching the two of them love it up. SweetPea generally joins the mix closer to 8 and when the hunger pangs start, it’s oatmeal hot off the stove. I may get dressed before breakfast and not slum it in my bathrobe. When I do get dressed (don’t get too excited, it’s a nursing tank) and throw up my hair (just freshly colored::oh!myvanity!), I have tried putting on a little jewelry.

It makes me feel like a lady. Nay, when I pop on this bracelet that sliiiiiiides on (no pesky clasp!!), I feel kinda like a queen.

After breakfast while they pop up and down and all around, I get a chance to run out to the garden before it snows and grab the rest of the swiss chard and raspberries. I wear my bracelet. Looking like a lady queen.

While I gather my thoughts and carry the baby around in the sling, the big kids might perform an impromptu concert for us, or insist on coloring the inside of a huge shipping box that recently showed up. I’m wearing my bracelet, feeling all fancy.

As morning slips through past lunch and onto naps, and I’m disheveled and girding myself to face the long late afternoon before my husband comes, the afternoon in which I pray with the kids, play with the kids, and fix dinner together, maybe even getting a quick run around the neighborhood, I’m rocking my queen bracelet.

It’s funny how just one bracelet can uplift an ordinary day, make an ordinary mood a fanciful and fancied one. Even if your glasses are taped because your son squished them.

    Not a bracelet person either but I think it is time to get out my box. This is a beautiful piece.

    These are all so lovely, it was hard to narrow it down to a favorite. So I picked 2- “confidence” and “light of life”

    Love Bracelets, especially this one!

  6. Sarah @ Two Os Plus More on November 10, 2014 at 8:59 am

    Love that ‘Pray for Us’ necklace. I tend to be more of a necklace or earrings person, but I recently have been wearing an amber bracelet sometimes. =)

  7. Celia on November 10, 2014 at 9:09 am

    Pretty! I’ve only just realized that bracelets are fun, but generally the jewelry I choose is un-fussy. This is a fun bracelet.

  8. Rachel @ Efficient Momma on November 10, 2014 at 9:19 am

    I’m loving the forgiven one 🙂

  9. Beth M on November 10, 2014 at 9:54 am

    Love her jewelry! Got a pair of her earrings this summer!

  10. halyna on November 10, 2014 at 10:12 am

    I force myself to put jewelry on! I realized I have to start looking half decent so my daughters don’t think being a mom means looking bad!:-)

  11. Megan on November 10, 2014 at 10:18 am

    I love that wing bracelet!

  12. Laurel on November 10, 2014 at 10:25 am

    The litany one is gorgeous! I’m not much into bracelets either, but these are definitely a game-changer. So pretty.

  13. Laurel on November 10, 2014 at 10:30 am

    I love all. the. things. in your etsy shoppe but what I need most right now is one of those bandit bibs for my teether. The aqua florals may end up in my cart soon.

  14. Nancy on November 10, 2014 at 10:32 am

    Hope continually

  15. Brenna G on November 10, 2014 at 1:42 pm

    That bracelet is so pretty, plus my helicopter flying husband would love those wings!

  16. Emily Barnes on November 10, 2014 at 3:18 pm

    The Apparition bracelet. I love Our Lady of Lourdes so much! <3

  17. Laura M. on November 11, 2014 at 7:49 am

    I like the Judith bracelet.

    • Laura M. on November 11, 2014 at 7:52 am

      And I still love the leggings – especially the blue and gold leaf ones!

  18. Micaela @ California to Korea on November 11, 2014 at 11:31 am

    I love yours, and the Hope Abounds bracelet. The cross on that one is magnificent!

  19. Amy @ Motherhood and Miscellany on November 11, 2014 at 3:21 pm

    My favorite is the “Great Love” bracelet. I have been dreaming of it since I saw one at Edel.

  20. Bethany on November 11, 2014 at 4:57 pm

    That is lovely! I always try to include one piece of jewelry to help look put together.

  21. Mandi Richards on November 11, 2014 at 8:39 pm

    I like the “Peaceful Heart” Believe bracelet.

  22. bobbi @ revolution of love on November 11, 2014 at 11:05 pm

    I am a bracelet person so I love this. 🙂

  23. Jamie on November 12, 2014 at 10:35 pm

    “Looking like a lady queen.” Ha! Oh my goodness! I love it! I love it, because it’s so true. I wore a bracelet for our family photos (and I actually did my hair), but I felt so luxurious, because I never wear jewelry besides my wedding ring, too. Funny how one piece can make you feel so nice.
