Deck the Halls with Stella & Dot..

Yesterday I gave my picks on gifts for my cousins and friends. Today is all about my mom. My mom is not only my best friend, but absolutely completely amazing. I really have no words to describe her, because she's awesome. She's been a sports mom, a booster mom, a single mom when my dad is deployed, a military wife, and works an extra full time job as a logistics manager. She is on her feet every day at work, so wearing long jewelry is out of the picture for her..and she doesn't wear earrings...or sparkly, fancy rings. Which leaves me to simple necklaces, scarves, and bracelets!

With Love Necklace
Super simple and beautiful. I can add my birthstone as well as my brother's birthstone to make it even more personal. She will always have her kids with her! 

Gloria Necklace
My mom is the queen of gray, black, brown and slowly incorporating jewel tones into her wardrobe. This would go with 99% of her wardrobe!

Vintage Twist Bracelet
She has the Luna Wrap bracelet, and loves it. She could layer this bracelet with the Luna. Talk about a party on her arm!
Signature iPhone Case-Poppy
My mom has the iPhone 4S and could use an update to her case. Plus it's totally adorable--it also comes in green!

Hey Everyone!
I have taken a blogging hiatus, but now I'm back! School has been totally nutso lately- had a huge exam to prepare for, plus patients, and class...the list is endless. But, the test is over (woo!) and I get my results this week (*fingers crossed*).

Here's what's new in my world of Stella & Dot:
The holiday's are around the corner and will be here before you know it! I am a student, by student I mean I take 26.5 credits a quarter, see patients, try to have a life and study. Therefore- I online shop. It's 1,000,000x easier for me. Yes, I do miss the hustle and bustle of the malls (especially since I live in Georgia and it doesn't really have the wintery feel for this northern gal); but, for the sake of convenience and my sanity I shop online.

I want to help you out with everyone on your holiday checklist:

There's seriously something for everyone at Stella & Dot. 

 Today I am featuring 3 different gifts I would give my cousins and closest girl friends:
Tree of Life- part of the charms collection. Also comes in silver. You can add other charms to this necklace for a more customized gift.

Radiance Coil Bracelet
It's simple with some sparkle. Perfect for any occasion.

Light, Courage, Love Bracelets
These are casual bracelets, ideal for layering to create that perfect arm party.
They are only $19 each...a total steal.

Also check out the Think PINK boutique. There are so many limited edition beautiful pieces, once the items are sold out- they are gone....forever. My grandmother has battled breast cancer, and is now in remission-- but in her honor and to support the Noreen Fraser Foundation, I purchased the (now sold out) Luna Wrap bracelet and I love it! There is still the scarf, and tech wallets available as well as the Hope bracelet! 

Lastly...to end this awesomely random post- I am doing a holiday giveaway on A Modern Day Fairy Tale's Blog. Ms. Randi, the blogger has written such a sweet review about Stella & Dot and her 100% honest opinion of the product. I wrote a little ditty featuring the company as a whole, my favorite items under $100 and a brief statement as to how I got involved with Stella & Dot. In return if you follow her blog, and follow my blog you are entered to win a $50 gift card to Stella & Dot. I also believe if you shop her online party (Shop Randi's Show) that increases your chances to win. 

You too can host your own online party and earn free and reduced priced jewelry, which is totally perfect for the holiday season. It's really an awesome way to give gifts. I would really love to give you more information about hosting a holiday online party, or if you are in the Atlanta area- lets do a show at your home! Send me a message (enanderson18@gmail.com) and I'll fill you in on all the in's/out's of hosting a show!

Make Fall Fabulous

I know it's only October...Halloween hasn't even come and gone, Thanksgiving is around the corner, yet I am asking you to think about the holidays.
This year my family is doing Christmas at Thanksgiving. We are a proud military family, and my dad has been in Kuwait since July. His 2 weeks leave will be over Thanksgiving, so we are celebrating Thanksmas/Christgiving (Christmas and Thanksgiving) in November. Therefore...I have to start thinking about gifts NOW!
When I gift/ask for gifts, I think practical. I want to give and get a  gift that is practical, something that I can use more than once. So in the world of Stella & Dot  when choosing gifts I keep in mind 3 things: beautiful, affordable and versatile.

Currently, here's what I'm thinking for my cousins and my dad's assistant in Kuwait Leo (has 2 daughters):
The Courage, Light and Love bracelets. Each are $19.
Courage Bracelet

Light Bracelet

Love Bracelet

For my mom- she is an avid scarf wearer in the winter. For the first time ever, Stella & Dot has launched a scarf line!
The Bryant Park Scarf in blue is what I'm thinking for her. She wears mostly solid jewel tones, and darker colors. Each scarf is $59. This scarf comes in pink, poppy, teal, and leopard!
Bryant Park Scarf-Blue

Little scared of the scarf? Not exactly sure how to wear one- check out this video!

The Holiday's are HERE!

The Holiday Collection is here and it’s like Christmas in… October! This is my first holiday season as a Stylist with Stella & Dot, and I just continue to be in awe of how they continue to outdo themselves. Seriously, I feel like every new season with Stella & Dot just gets better and better. We have tons of new pieces to please most everyone’s taste and budget. There are so many new products we’re offering, so many great gift ideas, and the packaging is irresistable. Here’s a sampling of my top picks! To see the rest of the collection, visit my personal website at www.stelladot.com/EricaNAnderson

This holiday season we have 2 designer collaborations.
Alice Temperley is a famous British designer whose collection can be seen on Kate and Pippa Middleton. Her collection combines femininity with a cool British style. 

My favorite piece from her collection is the 
The story behind the charms on the bracelet is this: 
Heart Charm – represents love; Bird Charm – one of Alice’s favorite motifs, it represents freedom; Fox Charm – a special charm for Alice’s son Fox London; Crown Charm – represents Alice’s British herritage; Key Charm – a popular symbol from Alice in Wonderland, the key opens doors to a world of possibilities.

This piece is from Lara Bohinc is another U.K based brand that combines luxury with a bold style. Although this piece is a total splurge, I really love the "knotty-ness" of this piece. It's definite show stopper for any occasion.

From our THINK PINK collection there are so many awesome pieces--between scarves, wallets, tech cases and bracelets there is something for everyone. All proceeds with go to benefit the NFF. I am looking to do a few benefit trunk shows in the Atlanta area or online, so please let me know if you or someone else is interested!

This wallet is so amazing, and is on my wishlist. It is full of pockets, has beautiful detailing and an awesome tassel!
From our holiday collection, my two absolute favorites of the whole collection are the:

These are A-MA-ZING! I cannot wait to wear them. I am not a fan of "dangly" earrings..but these I am  SO excited about. When I first saw these I thought of wearing them with a cute little black dress, tights, and boots--which means a perfect combo to look fabulous and have a date night.
Seriously..go check these babies out. Then go check out the ring for a perfect pair!
