The Gold Necklace Search Is On

14k gold necklaces

This summer, I lost my two favorite delicate gold necklaces. (The two shorter ones in the above photo.) In the midst of all the terrible things happening in the world right now, I realize that losing a couple of necklaces probably isn’t the biggest deal, but I’ll be straight with you, I was pretty devastated. I’m no stranger to losing really important pieces of jewelry, but I’ve been lucky in the past and found them. (I still can’t believe I found that diamond band BURIED IN THE SAND AT THE BEACH 6 HOURS LATER.)

Unfortunately, I don’t think I will experience the same luck this time around because I’m almost 100% positive my necklaces are somewhere in Breckenridge, Colorado. #wompwomp

Naturally, I’ve started looking for lovely gold necklaces to grace my lonely, deprived neck and I’m happy to report that there are many. This retailer is a favorite (both lost necklaces purchased there), as well as here and here.

I figured I might as well share what I’ve found during my searches. Here are some of my favorite gold necklaces, some solid 14k and some plated to fit varied budgets.

My Two Favorite Facial Oils (Both Under $75!)

The business of green beauty has exploded over the past 5 years and nothing seems to be slowing down, which means more and more products being introduced to the market every day. Clean/natural facial oils are incredibly popular and I love being able to try many of these oils and then sharing my favorites with you.

I’ve used facial oils with price points from $20 to $300 and my two very, very favorites are both under $75!

If you’ve been around here for any length of time, the first one is not going to be a surprise. Maya Chia Supercritical Oil has been a much-loved favorite of mine for years. You can read all my thoughts about Supercritical oil here, but today I want to focus on the other fabulous facial oil, and that’s Le Prunier Plum Oil.
