The Statement Boutique

Hey Everyone,

It’s taken me a while to sit down and get a chance to blog. My life has taken a crazy turn of events over the past year, I’m in the process of opening my Beauty Online store while juggling my job as a Makeup Artist and struggling to getting the hang of being new mom ! Yesssss…it’s been insane but I’m constantly reminding myself to just take one step at a time. Whew !

Anyways I recently met with a chick called Nisha Wagh that’s started an online jewellery boutique “The Statement Boutique” that caters to one-off pieces from around the world, and being the accessories junkie that I am, I naturally had to check it out.

I experimented with the necklaces that she lent me and tried to style them a bit differently.  The one major thing that I loved about The Statement Boutique is that you know that the piece of jewellery around your neck, wrist or ears isn’t your typical mass-produced  accessory found at the mall. These pieces are unique and some of them are sourced all around the world including places like Guatemala and Brazil. I personally just love how exotic it all sounds and that there’s an actual story behind it and not another product ‘made in china’ !
