Turquoise & Chakras

Using Turquoise to balance your throat chakra: Often times you can tell if a crystal is good for a chakra based on the color.  This is because light is energy, and that chakra is energy.  If the colors match, that means the vibrations match.  The throat chakra as a lot to do with confidence and speaking your mind.  You may find your that you are having trouble saying what you need to say, or speaking your truth.  You may find you don't have a lot of confidence. This could mean your throat chakra is closed, you want to open it. To the...

The Stone of Love - Rose Quartz

Last week I wrote about crystals for the new year, and I recommended Rose Quartz as a crystal that would allow you to bring love into all you do this year.  With Valentines Day approaching in a little bit over a month, I thought I would feature Rose Quartz in the online boutique.  Historically, Rose Quartz energy has been used to attract new love into ones life, or to develop a closer bond to friends and family.  So, if you're looking for something to wear to your Valentine's Day date, a gift for your partner, attract a new partner, or...

First Event of The Holiday Season

Ever have a super cute outfit planned, that you look forward to wearing all week, just to put it on the day of, and hate it? That was totally me on Saturday. So, I just tried to get creative, and put together a unique look, by wintering up, my favorite summer maxi, and was on my way out my first event of the holiday season.
