Does this look similar to your accessory collection?

It’s okay, you don’t need to feel ashamed. We all have the balls of tangled chains, missing earrings, bracelets strewn across our table, and rings scattered throughout the room. It is a fact of life really, something all accessory lovers have to find a way to deal with. Half the time we spend getting ready can be on hunting down and untangling the accessory we desperately want to wear. When you are strapped for space and time, sometimes keeping everything in little dishes and drawers just isn’t an option, and organization seems impossible to achieve. It is time to take a stance, time to teach your accessories whose boss and as much as they want to, they can’t take over your entire room. Claim back that time spent searching and untangling. Your schedule will thank you for it and suddenly, getting ready will flow much smoother. Hey, you may even be able to reunite a few earrings with their pair during the process, or discover the long lost ring that you’ve always loved. I know we really don't have to tell you this, but I Heart Accessories is here to help you with all your acessa-mess woes.

We recently restocked on a wide range of jewellery stands and accessory organizers in a bunch of styles. Some are whimsical and fun, while others straight to the point and very serious about their job, but still look good. The great thing about these pieces, is that they display all your things so you can see everything in one glance. Often, when things are kept in dishes or drawers we have to search through them to find what we want and a lot of the time we even forget about some pieces that we own. Our organizers can help you quickly see what your different options are for completing your outfit and make sure that nothing great gets lost in the crowd.

My favourites of the bunch are the tree shaped ones that come in three different styles. We have used these to display our jewellery for quite a while and have always gotten compliments on them.  They have twisted branches so your necklaces, bracelets, and rings don’t slip off as well as loops to hook your earrings into. Pick up a tree and have fun decorating it with all your jewels, the final product looks amazing and almost like a little art piece.  

We also have a range of holders in silver that can be for more specialized purposes. For those of us that have more earrings than we can count, there are holders that have rows of holes perfect for all styles of earrings. With these, you can easily keep track of all you have and not worry about missing pairs. There are also some with straight bars that are great for sliding bracelets onto or hanging and looping your necklaces so you don’t ever have to frustratingly untangle some chains. 

De-cluttering the accessa-mess can be a headache and often falls to the bottom of our list of things to do. It is easy to just toss items on the table or in a drawer while rushing to get ready, but this just results in scratched, lost, and tangled things that cause even more pain later. Save yourself the heartache, and come take a peek at how we can help your life. At least in the accessory department.

Time for a Change

My most recent personal accessory choice has been inspired by this week's back to school extravaganza.  Maybe it's because all those Staples commercials got me in the mood, or the fact that I never know what time it is...? but recently, I have decided to wear a watch. This is a big deal for me, as I've actually never been a watch person. The Mr. in my life is the opposite. He has an entire collection of watches that he perfectly matches with each outfit, as well as their very own case, with leather interior to boot. He's got this whole watch thing down...and I must say, I enjoy knowing that even if I don't know what time it is, he always will.

I have purchased myself many watches...and even remember my dad giving me a Snoopy Tennis watch exactly like this one:

But I never cared that it told time. I just enjoyed watching Snoopy hit the tennis ball. This watch is pretty cool, am I right?

Evidently, I haven't changed a bit. When we received our new shipment of watches last week...I excitedly unwrapped each one just to see the beauty of shiny newness. "Which one will I buy myself ?!?" went through my mind a few times. Then "Who am I kidding?...I'm not a watch girl." Which is true, I'm totally not. Call me a rebel, but I just don't feel as though I NEED to know what time it is badly enough to wear it on my wrist at all times.

I do however, enjoy bling. So naturally, when I saw this sparkly baby, I knew it had to be mine. And it is. It's on my wrist right now. I don't even know if the time is right on it, nor does it matter. It's just so pretty.

So - necessity or not, I have decided to follow in the footsteps of my significant other, who clearly knows the drill when it comes to timepieces. Meaning, I'll need to treat myself to more of these lovelies, to go with more of my outfits. It just so happens that we have quite the nice collection on our shelves at the moment. Here are a few that I've been spying with my little eye.

So, maybe I've become a watch girl. People can be watch people for different reasons, and those reasons don't always have to include knowing the time.  Once I find my Snoopy watch, I will have started a collection of two...soon to be many. This is a milestone.
