SeramegYBala ceramic necklace review

Hey readers,

Today I am doing a review of SeramegYBala jewellery. If you have never heard of this name well let me tell more. SeramegYBala is a shop on the Etsy website who offer unique handmade ceramic jewellery and gifts. So, each one is crafted individually which gives it that special quality as it is not just simply from a machine and massed product.

I received my item super fast in the post and the piece of jewellery came in a lovely recycled cardboard box with the stamp of the business logo on it (see pictures below).

The item comes as described and it is lovely hand crafted made.

I love the simple design on a hexagon with spots, it adds character to my outfit. There may different designs. This would make a lovely present for Christmas. The piece is well made and sturdy. At the back, the necklace has a clasp so you can keep the jewellery secure around your neck. Giving you that peace of mind that is safe and you don’t have to worry about the necklace getting broken. The necklace its self isn’t heavy which I was thinking it might because of it being ceramic, however, once I tested it out it felt light. Another good thing about the ceramic material as someone who has sensitive skin it didn’t react and it was comfortable to wear off for several days without any irritation. The whole ceramic piece is smooth and no bits were sharp that could cut into your skin, therefore, making it much more comfortable to wear compared to other pieces from different places that have sharp bits that dig into your skin.

I like the design of the necklace with the spots and the subtle colour as it is can be worn with a variety of different colours and not have to worry about it clashing and not completing the outfit nicely.

The necklace can be worn for many different occasions so you can get a lot of use out of it.

Frustrating

Hey readers

My word of the week is:

I just had one of them weeks when things have been testing me and makes me think what is the whole point of it all really.

I went the other day to a place further a field from where I live so had to get the bus which is stressful for me in its self. When I get to the place this was on  a Wednesday morning post 9 am and oh my gosh the place was heaving full of oaps. I am not used to this environment so really struggled to navigate and manage the noise.  Typical I picked the busiest day of the week. Then I go do a bit shopping for odds and sods and then get to the till and find I have not got my bank card it is at home. I then panic at the to and have a panic attack. So that was frustrating because it took time to go there and come back.

The next thing that annoyed me was instructions and people making them clear meaning that was is expected is not being reached.

Anyway it’s half term holiday so we can have a jolly good rest from it all.

I hope you have had a good week.

1) Describe your ideal blogging collaboration, with who and why? Oh my gosh, this is something I have never even thought about……..I would love to collaborate with TU by Sainsbury’s.

2) If you were God and had to create a brand new animal what would it look like/act like? (this is the funny one). I would create a Tizzle Wizzle, it would be fuzzy, black and white and could take it’s head off and turn it around. haha. It would be batshit crazy and smash things up.

4) What is your favorite and least favorite seasons and why? I think my least favorite season would be Summer because I don’t like being hot and sweaty. My favorite season is a toss-up between autumn and Spring, mild in weather and full of things to see and take photos off.

Here go my questions. 

1) If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

Reasons to blog

Hey readers,

I have been blogging for over three years now and feel that some experience of this whole blogging malarky. If you have never blogged let me enlighten you as to why you should consider, as there are many positives attached to being a blogger.

Creativity.

Firstly, blogging can allow you to be creative. You don’t have to be a niche but if you want to that is cool because it will be your blog. Blogging can be about anything, it is diverse in the blogging world. You can literally write about anything from domestic abuse to reasons to eat baked beans. It is a great tool for creativity and a way to express yourself to the world.

Therapy.

When I started blogging it was a distraction as I was going through some personal trauma. Blogging also helped me write down my feelings and express myself. I have autism and really struggle with verbal and trying to work out how I feel. With blogging, I can take my time and ponder. Blogging has helped me express myself when I maybe wouldn’t have. Writing has helped me grow in confidence with working out how I feel and exploring reasons why I respond in the way that I do.

Spread awareness.

One positive about blogging is it can help raise awareness of a message you want to spread. Blog posts are fantastic as they are from the individual rather than an organisation. They are personal and tend to be raw, making it feel more real in a sense. Blogging is a platform to get your voice out there, anyone can read it and it isn’t edited like professionals and I think that is one of the best things about blogs is that they tend to be first-hand accounts. I have always loved when exploring topics to reach out to the first-hand account as it feels real, people have lived it and know what they are talking about.

You learn about yourself.

I think exploring yourself can be quite hard but when you write it allows you to think about things. It makes your analysis and sees things maybe you might not instantly think of. Over time I have learned more about me through blogging and expanding areas of myself when I write.

Built an engagement.

Now, I am no great communicator but I will say that it has helped me get engaged with people. You may stumble across people that in normal life you would never have the opportunity to meet. Some bloggers make long-term friendship and think that is beautiful that something positive can come out of blogging.

Opens up to opportunities.

Blogging opens up to opportunities such as reviewing items or attending events. I am not the most successful blogger in this aspect but reading a lot of blogs if you are good at the social side of things then there are many doors that can be opened.

Make money.

Now, I have made the odd bit of money here and there which is fab as it has helped me when I really needed it. Some people can make a career out of blogging which I think is such an amazing opportunity to do something that you love.

Better writer.

As I have been blogging for a long period of time I feel that it has helped me be a better writer. I can write more words and can express myself better, which is always a positive.

Dating for the older person

Hey readers,

Who says you can’t date when you’re older, not now we live in a more liberal era and rightly slow. You can still have fun and meet people to have a good time together when you’re older.

A great way to find new and fun people to share your time with and go on dates is through dating sites.

Husband & Wife

Now, I know what you are thinking, ugh dating sites are full of creeps but actually many people have been successful. With the older dating sites is a great way to meet like-minded older people to connect with.

There are so many dating websites to chose from, however, websites like older-dating.co.uk is appealing because it is designed specifically for the older person. As you get older it can be problematic to find people who are of similar age who is also looking to date. That is one of the good reasons to check out senior dating websites because there is more choice and you can find who is available.

I know there are a lot of websites that require membership but luckily there are also other websites that are free and let’s face it who doesn’t like something for free.

One good thing about online dating is that you can do it from the comfort of your own home, you can take your time and don’t have to rush. You can change your mind at any point and you’re in control of who you want to know.

With older dating, it is safe and easy to navigate so all you have to worry about is what kind of person you are looking for. With dating websites, you have the choice who you want to get to know. Each person registered with the dating website means they come with a profile – which in essence is their way to sell themselves. You can get a feel for that person and whether there is something that you like or something you have in common with. It is also fun to find new people especially if you have something in common with them.

Another bonus point to dating websites online is there is so much choice and you can look through different areas of the UK so you’re not just stuck in one place, therefore opening up more choice of different people available.

With looking at profiles you can look at specific categories that suit you and your personality. Whether it is religion, gender, smoker drinker etc.

With free online dating, there is no limitation with the number of profiles you can look at or how many messages you can send, giving you more flexibility to further your chance of finding a perfect match to you and your needs.

There is also support from the website regarding help with questions or concerns you may have. The sites also provide information on how to save when meeting people and also if you are struggling to navigate around the website they can assist you. Therefore making you feel comfortable in knowing what you are doing and having the safety to explore.
