November is one of my favorite months for many reasons (the weather, getting into the holiday season, etc), but one of the top reasons is No Shave November.  Something about a guy with facial hair... nom.  I do like a bit of scruff to be honest, it's just so ~manly~ i suppose. ;)
Not only do i enjoy the men participating in No Shave November/Movember getting scruffier as the month goes on, but i think it's awesome that it raises awareness for men's health (prostate cancer, etc.) as well.
Movember has an official website on which you can donate money, learn more about the cause, participate, etc.!
Since i cannot grow a beard or a mustache of any kind, i thought i could kind of show my support through these quirky little earrings (above :).  I think they're adorable & they were only $5.50 from Claire's, woop.

Hope you're all having nice weekends. ♥
Can you believe Thanksgiving is only a few days away?  Crazy how fast time flies!

Etsy findings.

I love browsing on Etsy whenever i'm in the mood for a bit of online shopping.  I can always count on finding something unique and quirky, and it's great supporting our fellow awesome and creative people of the internet imo!  One of my favorite sections to scour on Etsy has to be jewelry.  Sometimes i can find the jewelry in shops to all be the same or just overpriced, so i've been turning to Etsy lately for my gem fix.
Below are two (the third was a gift!) of my latest findings.
cross stud - thrifted
I was watching one of Beauty Crush's videos and she was wearing an ear cuff that she had got from Fashionology & i decided i needed one for myself!  I then did a bit of searching on Etsy for a less expensive option and landed on the Triple Chain Silver Ear Cuff from kaylaivelisse.  I could've very easily spent a lot of money in her shop, i love the edginess to all of her pieces!
The piece i got is very nice quality and arrived quickly without any damage.  It came with a little clear back for the stud, but i seem to have misplaced it (standard) so when i wear it i just but any earring back on it.  I figured i'd get the cuff with the three chains because i figured i could always modify it if i wanted to just have the cuff, or just one or two chains.  Including shipping, this was only $11.75 which is a fantastic deal. :)

I had lost my old Scrabble ring (also from Etsy) and really wanted a replacement.  So again, i turned to trusty Etsy for one.  (I know many people may think that Scrabble rings are 'over' but i still love mine & continue to get compliments on it!).  This time i got a wooden piece instead of the plastic one, but i think both look great. The one above is from GeekyGifts.  It was only $4.75 with shipping and as a bonus, she added the little bear ring.  It arrived in my mailbox super quickly as well and was unharmed.

My love for Etsy is undying, i've never had a bad experience using it and there are always amazing deals & goodies to be found. :)
