Boho Jewelry

There seems to be a huge trend at the minute which involves hippie, gypsy and boho jewelry. After doing a little research into boho style I started to understand where it originated and perhaps why so many young people are picking up the trend. Companies like boho-chic and Belugaboho.com have picked up on the trend and are selling some very pretty pieces of jewelry. I think the trend is fantastic. It shows that young people are starting to turn more towards a more loving lifestyle and forgetting the fear and negativity portrayed in the media.

This ring is a great example of the boho jewelry young people are wearing. It very often has a heavy nature theme and can sometimes be very extravagant. I personally believe this trend is going to continue to grow and we will see more and more people copping the style.

It isn’t just young people following the boho trend though. I have seen a lot of middle aged women wearing boho rings, necklaces and bracelets. These seem to be people perhaps from the hippie era who are probably delighted to see the fashion is picking up again!

If you’re looking to get yourself some boho jewelry, there are a number of options. Beluga Boho have very fair prices and a wide variety. Boho-chic are also a really great source and have some beautiful stuff.

If you don’t want to buy jewelry you could perhaps try making your own. Boho jewelry is very often hand made out of items found in nature. Things such as shells, crystals and feathers are perfect for creating your own unique style. Although not everyone wants to spend time making their own jewelry, it is a good way to channel your creative self and create something original.

Hope you have enjoyed this small post and remember to shop smart!

 

Awesome Amazon Stuff

Hey there guys, today I want to show you some really cool things I found at Amazon.com. Everyone knows Amazon are the absolute kings when it comes to variety of choice and volume of items. There are a lot of hidden gems within the site so I wanted to show you some really cool things I have found lately.

 

#1 – Fake Bonsai

This is a really cool little tree you can buy for only $20. Bonsai’s are notoriously difficult to look after but you can get this AWESOME little fake one which takes all the stress out of it. I got a bonsai a while ago but I just couldn’t look after it and it died… I may have to get myself one of these little bad boys instead.

 

#2 – Levitating Speaker

Okay this is just pure awesome. It looks like something from a sci-fi movie and I can’t quite believe it’s real. BUT IT IS. This one clocks in at $90 so it’s fairly pricey for the size but guys, it levitates! I really need to get myself one of these things to place in my room and freak out my friends. It’s a totally awesome little gadget and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for stuff like this!

 

#3 – Bluetooth remote control light

led-light

My friend has one of these and I can testify that it is fantastic. You get the full RGB colour scale so you can really create any colour you want in your room. It’s only $25 so it’s well worth picking up if you want to make your room that little bit more awesome. The best part is that it PLAYS MUSIC. Who would have thought of a lamp that changes colour and plays and music? This thing is really just fantastic and a must have for all you gadget geeks!

This is just a quick post because I don’t have much time today but I will update it with a lot more items soon!

 

Shopping for psychedelic tapestries

Trippy tapestries are a great way to decorate your home and have seen a huge popularity rise in recent years. The combination of crazy colours and a hippie style pattern, makes them ridiculously popular in the boho scene. If you spend just 5 minutes on Pinterest or Tumblr you are bound to find a crazy amount of images with trippy bedroom tapestries.

So why are these tapestries so popular at the moment? Well there are a number of reasons we need to examine! First of all, psychedelic tapestries see a huge sales spike in the summer. This is because of festivals, people wanting to use them as picnic blankets and just because they are summery.

If you check out this image below as an example, you can see why they are popular with the hippie boho crowd. It has bright positive colours, a nature theme and looks very ‘hip’.
