Emerald + Pave Giveaway!

Giveaway CLOSED
Happy Hump Day!!  Well it's tornado season, so of course we have had some incredibly warm weather the last few days, but it will turn much colder later this week.  It was in the mid 70's yesterday - love it!  When I got home from work, the first thing trade out my pencil skirt for a pair of shorts.  Remember these shorts here from my January Wish List?  They are regularly $105, but I found them on eBay for $25 and used my eBay bucks to get them for free!  They were a size too big, but that's nothing that my handy dandy tailor can't fix for about $5, score.  It ended up being crazy windy later last night, but you better believe that didn't stop me from wearing my new shorts for the first time!!  Is it just me, or is that A LOT of green in the pictures below.  Yeah, we definitely didn't plan it out when we bought 4 green chairs after we already had our chaise, bench and umbrella in green.  Oops, live and learn I guess.  At least my top is a different color green - emerald.  This is probably my favorite color this year.  I have green eyes, so I always try to look for something in emerald green if I can to match my eyes.  I used to be so, so jealous of all those gorgeous blue-eyed people (and I still am a little bit), but I've learned to love my green eyes that I got from my mom.  She was probably getting sick of hearing me gripe about how I didn't get my dad's pretty blue eyes.  = )  Back to emerald green - did you know it is Pantone's color of the year for 2013?  So go ahead and stock up on some when you see it, because it will definitely be here to stay for a while.  I am picked out my Operation Red Emerald Bikini from J. Crew for this summer!  Don't forget to enter my Monday Giveaway here and pretty please enter my SIL's giveaway here, and let her know I sent you.  Please and thank you.  = )  And last but not least, don't forget to keep reading to enter for the new Pave Bracelet Giveaway today!
 
 


Ann Taylor Silk Camp Shirt.  On sale for $68.
Stylestalker Faux Leather Shorts.  $89.25 with code NOWWASTED.
Nixon Timeteller Black Tortoise Watch.  $150.  Last seen here.  This is my absolute favorite watch, worth every penny, I promise!!
Apple of My Eye Pave Bracelet.  $40.  Sold out, but check out their other styles here until they get this one back in stock.






After I got dressed in my summer gear, we headed over to Sekisui Midtown.  This is one of my favorite restaurants in Memphis!  Janessa, we need another date there pronto!  They have the best sushi in Memphis in my opinion.  I've been going there for about 11 years.  All of the Sekisui locations in Memphis are awesome, but this location is probably my favorite because I love the midtown area.  I wasn't too hungry so I started off with some clear soup.  It is mainly a broth with with scallions and mushrooms in it.  The best clear soup in Memphis though.  They're miso is pretty good too, but I prefer Blue Fin's - their sister restaurant. 



 
 
 
For my appetizer, I got sauteed shitake mushrooms.  I haven't had these in years, and they didn't disappoint.  So good.  They have a great buttery taste to them from sauteeing them in it.  They're a pretty decent size too.
 
 
 
For my entree, I got the Deluxe House Salad.  It is like their regular house salad, but much bigger and it has lump crab meat on it.  The ginger dressing is awesome too.  Shane ate lots of sushi; I was jealous but trying to lay off the rice.  If you come to Memphis and love Japanese food, I definitely recommend Sekisui.


 
Now for the giveaway!!!  This gorgeous pave bracelet is the most coveted bracelet this year.  J. Crew has them for $125, and they have sold out multiple times, but why spend $125 for one when there are other ones out there that are even bigger and prettier...and only $40?!  I happened to stumble upon Apple of My Eye Jewelry recently.  Nathalie Spicker is the owner of this Etsy shop, and she is seriously the best.  Please take a minute to follow her on Instagram here and let her know I sent you.  I am partnering with her today to bring you this fabulous giveaway.  You ladies will just love her and her beautiful jewelry.  Have you seen her beautiful Bauble Pendant Necklace on clearance for $3.99, what?!?!

I love emerald as a color too. I also have green eyes, I've actually been told that green eyes are the rarest eye color, but I'm not sure if that's true! So wearing green or purple always makes them pop more, I think!

I read that emerald is the color of the season, I need to stock up. I don't think I own a single thing that's emerald.
