First and foremost, please excuse my chubby fingers. They swell when it’s warm and it’s not fun but whatcha ya gonna do? Secondly, this is one of those ‘YouTube made me to it’ moments. I saw the Solar Plexus Chakra bracelet on Estee Lalonde and fell in love. It was a Sunday, and Daisy London were doing a promotion where all of the profits from this bracelet for the week would go to charities that help people struggling with mental illness since it was Mental Health Awareness week. So I bought it. And a few other things that had nothing to do with helping charities, I just wanted them…. opppsss…
When the box arrived, I was so excited. First off, the packaging was great! Everything was wrapped in this pretty tissue paper. The bracelet was in a little bag and the earrings came in boxes. They also included a little Daisy London shopping bag, which was unnecessary and a bit wasteful, but it made me feel fancy! They also included information about the two Chakras that corresponded with my earrings and necklace I chose.
To be honest, I wasn’t 100% sure how I would feel about the bracelet when I saw it in person because I like to keep things quite simple. But the silver is delicate and thin so it’s not too much. It doesn’t feel fragile though, it is nice quality. I like having the little semi-precious light citrine stone at the back but it does flop over very easily so it’s not always on show. That doesn’t bother me but it is something to keep in mind. My only complaint is the sizing. The smallest size is too small, but the middle one is a little loose. I think that’s probably why the citrine stone flips over so much. But I still love this bracelet and have been wearing it daily.
I also like the idea of the Solar Plexus Chakra that goes along with the bracelet. I don’t know a lot about the Seven Chakras but my mum has always talked about them, and I would like to explore and learn more about the theory behind it. The solar plexus chakra is all about sensing your personal power and being confident, which is something I need to connect with.
I bought the Brow Chakra earrings because I want to start wearing dangly earrings. I’ve always felt like they don’t suit me but I love them on other people, so I think I just need to get used to them on me. I though this pair was cute and versatile. They’re subtle, but they add a little something to an outfit. One of the closures was a little loose when I got them, to the point where it wasn’t staying closed, but I just squeezed the clasp a little but and now it works great.
The Brow Chakra is emotionally connected with insight, self-realization and releasing negative thoughts; it was another chakra I felt I needed help with. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think the jewellery is necessary going to have a physical impact on me, but they’re little reminders. Reminders to myself to focus on myself and finding balance within me.
I also bought a little ‘B’ earring, and while I do wish it as a little bigger, it is really cute and fun. Again, it’s simple and is great to mix and match with other earrings. The bit that you put through your ear isn’t too long and it’s sterling silver, so I’ve found it comfortable to wear all the time.
I hope you enjoyed!
