Debut of the Akorie Collection and Oh Yeah, Purple Hair!

Well you probably have noticed my new deep burgundy/purple hair.    In the pics and in really bright light it does look burgundy.  It's odd the color was described on the box (yes I did it myself) as deep burgundy, but everyone that sees it in person calls it purple, including the teen cashier at McDonalds who declared me to have "bad ass" hair!  OK enough about my hair, why I am really here today is to share with you all my new bracelet!!!

When you own a piece of jewelry that is so pretty and unique, you just can't help but feel special when you wear it.  Since receiving this stunning new bracelet to review from Grace the owner and designer of the New Akorie Collection on Etsy, I have been enjoying wearing it.  I am finding it works well with both casual and sophisticated style. I am a huge fan of turquoise, but if you are not don't worry, she has a wonderful variety of colors to choose from. She even welcomes special orders.  One of of my favorite things about this bracelet is how you can easily adjust the size of it.  For that reason alone it would make a fabulous gift, since you don't have to worry about size.

The bracelet is stunning, I wish I could say the same about my nails. 

I want to show you all how nicely packaged my bracelet was when it arrived.
