My Current Accessory Obsession

Lately there has been a particular accessory that has been catching my eye..

I’m in love with spoon rings right now! I’ve been obsessing over these lately as my latest fashion statement. I’m not sure if they are just popular where I live or if it’s everywhere. I think the are so classic and I love the chunky look of multiple spoon rings on one hand. One on each finger if you can handle it! My obsession began a while ago when I saw that my grandma was wearing these very cool chunky rings. Since then, I have seen them on multiple people and definitely on Pinterest.

There are lots of DIY spoon rings on Pinterest, but personally I like to buy mine at antique stores. I love how vintage they feel and they’re really easy to come by. Often times, they are really affordable and come in so many different sizes. This is important to me because my ring finger size is 3.5! Because they are literally made from spoons, the antique ones are usually real silver and can be shined to sparkle. A little elbow grease is all you need to make one of these beautiful rings to shine like new.

In case you were wondering what spoon rings are, here’s a little collage of spoon rings!

I also thought I would share my most recent finds at my local antique store:

The one on my thumb is from a silver plated spoon and the one on my hand is a sterling silver spoon. I think they are sooo cute!

Let my know if you guys are in love with this look as well!

Pros and Cons of Wearing Glasses

I’ve been wearing glasses now for a couple of years and there are definitely some pros and cons of wearing them. Maybe you can relate to my love/hate relationship with my glasses.

glasses

Pros:

  • They cover up third eye zits. You know the ones that horrifyingly show up right between the eyes.
  • Looking like a hipster comes naturally. (This one depends on what type of glasses you wear, but who wouldn’t want to be a hipster once in a while?)
  • You look smarter – I know this is a stereotype, but sometimes I just feel smarter.
  • They’re an easy accessory. Sometimes I feel like when I wear my glasses, I don’t need to try as hard on jewelry.
  • No makeup? No problem.
  • Your eyebrows don’t have to always be on fleek. Having a bad eyebrow day? Have no fear, cover them up with glasses!
  • You can dramatically throw them off whenever you feel like it.

Cons:

  • Rain. Need I say more?
  • Red marks on the nose. No matter what type of glasses you wear, those little red marks feel permanent.
  • Fogginess. Wash the dishes? Fog. Drink coffee? Fog.
  • Smudges. My glasses seem to always have some sort of smudge on them.
  • Spent an hour on perfect winged eyeliner? Don’t worry. No one will notice behind your glasses.
  • Hats + glasses = a hot mess. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel overwhelmed when I’m wearing my glasses and I put on a hat.
  • Sports are a danger zone. I didn’t do a whole lot of sports, but glasses definitely get in the way.

If you were wondering, here is a lazy Sunday selfie of me and my glasses:
