Alex and Ani Bracelets

Hello friends!

I wanted to share my small collection of Alex and Ani bracelets with you all because I wanted to share the meanings they all hold for me. I don’t wear them all the time just because I’m teeerrrrrible with wearing jewelry but their meanings are a worth a lot more than the wear I get out of them.

September Birthstone Charm Bangle
As you may or may not know, I am a September baby!! Therefore, my birthstone is a sapphire, which I love lots and lots and lots—it really is a beautiful stone. This along with my next bracelet was one of the first Alex and Ani bracelets I have ever purchased for myself.

Initial H Charm Bangle
This is the second Alex and Ani bracelet I bought along with the birthstone one! How can you not get the letter that your name starts with? The H and the sapphire are the quintessential representations of me (minus all my hobbies and preferences) but at the heart of it all, I’m just a random Hannah born in September of ’97.

Friend Charm Bracelet
My mother’s friend bought me this on my seventeenth birthday which I think was really nice of her to do. I’m not the closest with her personally, if I had to be honest, but the friend aspect of the bracelet is really the importance to me. If you saw my post on Sept 1st about my friends, you know I treasure my friendship more than most things. Friends are an extremely crucial part of my life so it’s nice that this bracelet can sum that up.

Path of Life Charm Bracelet
My high school choir director gave me this bracelet as a graduation gift to match the one that she had. I’m not sure if she gave me this charm specifically but in my head I’ll believe that she did. Throughout the last few years of high school, she and I always had talks about my life problems or the choir program, but mostly my life problems which pretty much always ended in me crying and her trying to console me and tell me about the twists and turns of life. One thing she said to me was that “Life doesn’t get easier, in fact it gets harder, but you get stronger” or something along the lines of that, but even though I was kind of sad that life didn’t get easier (who doesn’t wish that??), it was hopeful to know that I may be able to endure it more. She’s my favorite person.

Sweet Melody Charm Bangle
My best friend gave me this for my 18th birthday which really does mean a lot to me beyond the point of me loving music and the charm representing my love for music. We became friends through music, through our choir program, and we’ve always constantly struggled through our musician problems together and managed to come out alive (that sounds way worse than it actually is, but being a musician is hard okay!) so I like to think that this treble clef represents all those music moments. It represents all the fun times we had in high school choir, all the fun times listening to music, or sitting at the piano, or just anything. Her friendship is special.

Recently I’ve been more into the idea of people getting me Alex and Ani bracelets rather than buying them for myself because I feel like they’re more sentimental that way. Whatever charm they choose is almost like a representation or memory of them, so it’s nice to carry around a bit of them sometimes. I’m a very sentimental person if you couldn’t tell by my blog or something. Just, letting you know, y’know?

Thanks for keeping up with yet another blog post, I’ll see you guys next time! 🙂

Aldo Hatchet Bag

Hi friends!

My aunt gave me this purse for my birthday and I thought I’d share with you how great it is! I’ve actually gotten compliments from classmates at college! People I have never met in my life, who happen to sit next to me in class compliment the purse, so I suppose it needs some sharing.

I have been using this purse for uni because it happens to be the perfect size for my laptop (MacBook Air 11″) and whatever other junk I bring to school. It’s navy with white stripes and brown trim/handles. It’s a tiny bit heavier than most high end brands (i.e. Michael Kors) but who has that money? Not me — and it’s not as if it’s handicapping me or busting my shoulder. It’s a bearable purse weight and the only thing making it heavy are my laptop and books. The inside has a total of five pockets — in the front there are two about the size of my iPhone 5S and one for a pen or pencil; in the back there is a zip pocket as well as an open pocket on top of it about the size of a 6Plus? I’ve only encountered a 6Plus about three times in my life so I could be wrong, but a 6 will definitely fit. I also didn’t know exactly how to express the measurements so this is the most rational way I thought of, haha! Please excuse my subpar ability to describe the pockets.

I would take pictures of my purse but I’ll just attach the website photo and links. It comes in various colors and designs and they also have a white and black polka dot pattern that I really like that’s 50% off! So I’ll attach a picture and link of that one as well.

Kate Spade <3

Welp . . . I recognize that it has been awhile since I have made a blog post but I have been really busy and I am so very sorry 😦 I promise I have a list of blog posts to write about . . . I just never have the time to write them all (I have four bullets written down ok?!) This is just a quick update to let you know I have not died . . . (even though it’s only my best friend who kind of follows me around on this thing)

Hello internet!

I recently bought a new purse after waiting for months for it to get marked down enough that I would feel much more confident in purchasing in it! It is indeed from Kate Spade and I wish I could give you the name but I threw away the tag already and it is unavailable from the website and has been for a few months now so instead I will provide pictures hoping that you may see it in your nearest Kate Spade outlet store 🙂

And that is my new purse! It has two pockets on the front inside, and a zipper pocket on the back inside with a magenta/pink lining. I love love love it!

Until next time internet!
