Today’s Make It Monday is a bit different. It’s nothing crafty or stylish (although it could be), but it’s something we need to remember to do regularly. I personally didn’t realize the importance of this until recently. We become so consumed with daily activities and responsibilities that we forget that every now and then we need to stop and take some time back for ourselves. Here are 5 things you can do when you take a time out for yourself.
- Go for a walk. Take in the scenery, smile at a stranger or whistle while you walk.
2. Take up yoga. This has to be one of the best ways to de-stress and center your mind.
3. Grab a cup of your favorite coffee. I’m a coffee lover and I love walking into a coffee shop and smelling freshly brewed coffee.
4. Get lost in a bookstore.

This summer has been unusual than most summers. Usually during summertime I’m trying new recipes, experimenting with different jewelry pieces, basically just having experimenting fun. For the past couple of weeks I’ve been glued (literally) to this new course I’m taking on Creative Live taught by a online mentor of mine, Megan Auman and taking a stab at refining my business strategies to better focus my jewelry business. Most of my time has been occupied doing homework, but I did manage to sneak in this recipe over the weekend that I found on Pinterest.
I bought some noor dates from the Farmer’s Table a week ago with the idea of finding a yummy dessert. Thanks to the Minimalist Baker , I decided to try her recipe for Caramel Peanut Butter Truffles and I must say there are only two left in the freezer and it’s only Monday. I even add sliced strawberries mixed in a little vanilla on the side. Writing this is making me want another one. So I’m going to take little break now and go grab one, but be sure to check out the recipe the Minimalist Baker’s site.

Growing up with sisters as you can imagine it was all about hair and clothes. Having sisters also meant double the wardrobe options. Now that we’ve gotten older my sisters and I are pretty spread out across the country, so when I visit them I make it my big sisterly duty to raid their closets. You know “take a few things off their hands.” I was able to snag a few things last time we congregated, but I did have my eye on a few other things that wouldn’t fit into my suitcase 🙂 I guess that means I’m probably going to have to buy them myself. Meet my sisters and the stuff I didn’t “fit into my suitcase,” the last time I saw them.
Also, be sure to check out my newly launched handmade jewelry subscription box.
Thank you to all our July jewelry subscribers. Happy to say your box is on the way! We hope you are as excited as we are here at The Pink Locket. If you didn’t get a chance to order your box, there’s still time to subscribe to the August box.
The best part about summer time is the variety of delicious sweet fruits. In my opinion, the queen of all summer fruits is a mango. Being from Jamaica, we LOVE when mango season comes around. Aside from being rich in Potassium, Vitamin C and Vitamin A, it is a beautiful and delectable fruit whether you decide to eat it as is or cook with it or add it to a drink. Have you ever came across someone who said they hated the way a mango tasted? Nope, me neither.
The mango color has managed to sneak its way into our summer fashion and beauty products as well. Check out some of my mango fashion picks from Polyvore .
I love the idea of mixing metal jewelry. There’s definitely a way to mix various metals of jewelry so that it looks very chic and distinct. Here are some great ideas and looks on mixing metal jewelry. See more on my “Styling With Jewelry” Pinterest board.
