Oh you guys, I am SO excited about this one, because c'mon, who doesn't love a good piece of jewelry?
I have to admit to you, I didn't really care all that much about jewelry until I had this pack of kids.
Let me tell you why: It takes time to put on makeup. Even more time to shower. I don't remember the last time I've used an actual hairdryer instead of the air to dry my hair. It's a good day when I pull out my flat iron instead of grabbing yet another binder and throwing my hair up in a ponytail. And I'll put on my perfectly-fitting designer jeans in the morning but no promises that they won't be covered in baby spitup and smeared with peanut butter by noon.
Time is not on my side. But a frump I will not become. I have standards, people.
Enter jewelry. It takes only seconds to find and put on and it instantly says to the world, "I still care about the appearance I'm putting forth."
I think every woman has their own little jewelry fetish and for me, hands down, it's earrings. Oh how I love a good dangle.
It's gotten to the point where I feel actual nakedness if I'm not wearing earrings. Even when I'm working out I've been known to wear the diamond stud earrings Brian got me so long ago for one of our anniversaries.
So you can imagine my excitement when my sister-in-law, Nicole, became a Stella & Dot consultant.
I know what you're thinking. Another house party where they're trying to sell you something. But I think this is different. For one, it's just good, fashionable jewelry. No gimmicks. And two, Nicole is just another mom of four trying to make her way in the world. And I think we all, me especially, can applaud and support that.
So back to the jewelry. Shall we?
I already own these earrings in green but now I think I might need them in blue.
And how about wearing this brightly-colored bangle instead of a watch?
I seriously love them all!
Nicole has graciously offered a $40 Stella & Dot credit to one of my readers! To enter, simply head on over to Nicole's Stella & Dot site and have a look around.

Or, if you happen to live nearby, I would love it if you stopped by on May 30 to see all the jewelry pieces in person and have a glass of wine (or two?) with yours truly.
The contest will end at noon on Wednesday, May 29 at which point I will randomly pick one commenter. Remember to include a way for me to contact you if you win: email, website, Twitter handle, Facebook page, etc. Please, only one entry per person.
