I had a wonderful weekend with my family.

We had a little road trip to visit my brother and sister-in-law in Dallas to celebrate my mom and brother's birthday. That is one thing about my family... we may have to drive 5 hours, but we always make a way to get together. Family is just too important not to. No it isn't convenient, no it isn't easy, but if it is important, you make a way. Okay, this isn't a post about family... but if it was, that was my intro! 

 If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don't you should! ;) Just click the link) you may have seen me posting lots of jewelry. Well, that is because my sister Destiny (blogs over at A Destiny Insight) and I have began a little challenge, the #necklacechallenge. You see, Destiny has A TON of necklaces. I have quite a bit too, but not even a drop in the bucket comparatively. And if you are anything like us, many of those necklaces go unworn for quite some time. So we decided to kick off the #necklacechallenge, challenging ourselves to wear a different necklace everyday until we have worn each necklace at least one time. Here's the kick, until we do wear each necklace one time, we CAN'T BUY ANY NEW NECKLACES. Yep. So no new necklaces for Destiny for 2 MONTHS!!! I told you she had a lot!

But the challenge has been a lot of fun so far. It has made me be creative and use pieces that have been ignored for a while and some that I had just forgotten all about. And then of course we are documenting our necklaces with the outfits.

If you would like to join in PLEASE DO! We would love to see all your lovely pieces and how you get creative with them as well. Just use the hashtag #necklacechallenge and/or you can tag us in them as well (@dalaynalanee & @destinydillon) so that we don't miss them. I will keep my eyes out for your pictures and may even feature yours here on the blog!

Here are my necklaces that I have worn so far:

Are you up for the challenge???
