This post is in collaboration with Happiness Boutique. They sent me the pieces for free in return for a honest review.

In short- a package with jewelry will always cheer me up.

Ever since we got back from CA, it has been super rainy, cloudy, and downcast. I had been reading, napping and drinking an endless amount of hot beverages. Thanks to being cooped up for a while, the weather being blah and the fact that I had a headache (probably from reading too much…) I wasn’t quite myself.

That is till my package from Happiness Boutique came in.

In need of a cheer up? Happiness Boutique has just the stuff!

I’m gonna post a picture on my Instagram teasing what I got, but you, my lovely readers will get the first glimpse!

Jewelry will always boost my mood by like 1000%. Especially gorgeous pieces like these earrings and this necklace (well darn the one I got is no longer available).

I picked out these pieces like an hour before we left for the airport and to be totally honest, I completely forgot about them in the ensuing weeks. So to get them over the weekend and when I wasn’t feeling 100% was a total treat.

I had planned to share a cute outfit (my first outfit post on the blog really), but then it rained and shooting a cute outfit post was out of the question. So I took a couple flat lays instead.

The necklace (linked are similar ones) is “y” shaped and is pearl and rhinestone encrusted. It’s silver and absolutely stunning. I remember thinking ‘how cute and different this necklace is’ then when I received it, the first thing I thought was ‘this reminds me of the Titanic necklace. even though it looks nothing like it (I think the name has a lot to do with it).

Or long like this

The earrings are my favorite by far! They’re reversible, so you’re getting two pairs of earrings in one. Deal much? Plus they’re super classy and I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve gotten on them. One side is pearl and the other is rhinestone (two of my favorite studs to wear). They are so simple, but make a huge impact.

If the pearl is in the front you can’t really see the rhinestone
But if the rhinestone is in the front you can just see the pearl in the back

I think they have some super cute stuff, so you know I’ll be creating an account, racking up reward points and using the 10% code they gave. Not to force this on you, but I’d jump on this bandwagon ASAP.

I promise to share some rad outfit photos with you guys as soon as the weather gets better and I’m out of this funk. Thanks for the cheer up Happiness Boutique.

Some jewelry will always cheer me up, What boosts your mood on a low day?
