In many cultures, dragonflies are considered a symbol of good luck. I love knowing this as I have always loved them and my daughter had gifted me with a dragonfly necklace that I would wear everyday. One day the chain broke from my dragonfly charm and I honestly felt lost without it. That was until I was able to find the perfect replacement - this gorgeous Natural Beauties Dragonfly Necklace from Waxing Poetic. I now have a very special dragonfly necklace that I can wear daily again.

Celebrate Spring Weddings with Sterling Silver {and Umbrellas}

When it comes to Spring, Blue Nile knows there’s something very fresh and clean about silver – just like a spring rain shower.

You can see it shine in hoop earrings, bangles, and more. Today, I’m sharing some great sterling silver designs you might like to wear on your own wedding day or gift to your bridesmaids. And, of course, since we can never predict the weather - spring weddings also require a few fancy umbrellas on hand for those occasional rain showers that may pop up during photo time. Not only are they practical - but they come in some pretty amazing styles for stunning photos.
