Pink, Black, White and Gold Office/Craft Room Inspiration

My last room that I really have planned out is my Jourdan’s Jewels office/craft room. The whole gold trend is finally starting to grow on me.. Only a year or so later, but nonetheless! I am way excited for this room, too, because I get to be as girly as it gets in this room!!

Pink, Gold, Black Office

My colors are black, white, pink, gold and silver in this room.


Loving the white shelves with the glitter initial, the jar of shredded gold paper and that lip print!!!!


How’s this for lovely?! Gold glitter switch plate/outlet covers?? YES, PLEASE!

but I couldn’t find one, so I settled for this.


How fabulous are these curtains?!!

I also bought this print. It fits perfectly because I do LOVE my business and to craft.

Big Dreams

You know that feeling when you’re laying in bed, trying to sleep and your mind just WILL NOT shut off?? Yeah, me, too. Every. Single. Night.

Last night, I couldn’t help but think of all these things I want to do in my life and all of my big dreams that I have for myself and my business. I see all of these other boutiques that sell like crazy and I am envious, not jealous, but I do envy all their fans and the support that they get, and of course, the money would be nice. But money really isn’t what it’s all about. I ENJOY my job. I enjoy selling clothes and jewelry to others. I love helping them feel good about themselves and finding a good deal. I know that when I am scrolling through my newsfeed and I see some boutiques that carry the EXACT same items as me, but are charging almost 50% MORE than what I am charging, it makes me sad. Good for them that they can charge that much, because I know how much the item costs and they are making a KILLING! But I know that not everyone can afford to pay those prices and it sucks for them because they want these items so bad, but just can’t afford it. I really do try to provide items at affordable prices. I realize that sometimes $40 for a dress is not exactly affordable, but I am hardly making anything off that price!

Someday, I would love to be so big that I have to hire employees to help me do all the things that I do by myself right now. I can’t wait to get a warehouse someday because my business will have grown too big for my home. I can’t wait to meet future customers and have friendships. And I’ll tell you what, I have made some really great friends through my business. I love that part of it a lot. No, we don’t “hang out”, but when I see them at the store or something, we have a nice chat or if it’s friends that don’t live nearby, we just have conversations over messages. It’s nice to know that I am making a difference in these women’s lives.

So all the while I am dreaming about all these things and feeling discouraged because I am not there yet, I have to take a step back and remember that I am only 20 years old. I have a FULL life ahead of me. I WILL accomplish those things and I WILL fulfill my dreams, just not right now. It may not be tomorrow, and it may not be the next day. It may not be for even a couple YEARS, but it WILL happen!

Tell me your big dreams!

Social Media Marketing


I mentioned the other day that I started school again.

I am just three required classes short of my Associates, so I figured I better quick slacking and get it over with.

Plus, I am so sick of people asking me when I am going back.

One class that I am taking was not a class that I needed, but one that I WANTED to take.

I know, weird! Who WANTS to take an extra class?!

Seriously, though, I am SO excited for this class.

It’s called Social Media Marketing, hence my title.

I am SO excited for this class.

I love it already.

For one, I really like the teacher.

I’ve had her for quite a few of my other business classes.

Two, this is a brand new class at our college – so that means we are the guinea pigs! Which also means less work! (;

And three, because I have three businesses, so I figured I could learn quite a bit about how to make my businesses better!

One of our assignments was to watch THIS Social Media Revolution video.

{I can’t play it on my blog, so you’ll have to click over to YouTube to watch it, but it’s SO worth it!}


I will probably talk about more business stuff, as I learn it, so keep checkin’ back! (:

What was something you learned from the video? What was the most interesting thing?




Adorable Jewels I’ve Been Making

Over the Black Friday weekend, I did a huge sale with my Jourdan’s Jewels and Jourdan’s {Handmade} Jewels. Like 50% off huge.

I had about 20 Handmade orders – 4 from one girl, 8 from another, and then some other randoms.

So I’ve been busy.

I can’t wait to share all of them that I made, but I have to wait just a few more days because they are gifts.
