Keeping your earrings organised


One of the best ways to store earrings in the humid environment of Singapore is in a plastic container, keeping fashion accessories in this manner prevents them from oxidising as well as becoming dusty.



The containers with the individual slots are perfect but finding a pair of earring without rummaging all the earrings can be a pain.

The solution ....


By placing your earring onto pieces of card paper it not only makes them easy to find,  it is also more aesthetically pleasing to the eye.


Here is how I made those little card holders for the earrings:

Step 1: Get some card paper and a sewing seam ripper, you could use a pen or pencil but i found that the seam ripper dies a great job in poking the holes into the card and it does grip on to the paper while the hole is being poked so the paper does not slip from your hands.


Step 2: Cut the card paper into 8 smaller pieces and us the seam ripper to poke 2 holes for the earring to go into.





There you go a cheap and easy way to keep your earrings organised, and you can recycle these small bits of the card once they are torn or unusable.

To remove or not to remove the plastic holders of your earrings?

Last year 19-year-old Chelsea Smith, tweeted that she realised the round plastic holders behind earring can be taken off and are unnecessary. But as I always believed things are always made for a purpose. 



If you would take a closer look at the earring designs which have these plastic backings are usually bulker and heavier. These plastic disk actually provide support to the earrings preventing it from drooping on your ears and not just a smart marketing plan to make the earring look nice on their holders in stores.

Fashion accessories that are appropriate for work.

I am sure that many of us would like to look our best at work.

Looking good doesn't only makes us feel confident, it  also presents a well groomed employee. Any employer would appreciate this as their employees represent their company. Studies has shown that dressing appropriately increases the chances of getting a promotion.   
Sure you know how to pair that outfit just right but what about fashion accessories? What are the dos and don'ts in a corporate environment.

Keep the bling bling for parties
Casually styled fake diamond huge necklaces and statement earrings are a no no for work, they are loud distracting and down right unprofessional. Please save these lovely pieces for dinner parties. Opt for stud diamond earrings and simple pieces such as our 
Diamond Bow Fashion Stud Earrings

 Don't be an all in one band in the office.
Everyone knows that the office is more often then not a quiet place. Don't wear dangling earrings or a huge chunk of bangles, these make a noticeable bunch of noises when you walk pass. You wouldn't want to notify everyone about your presents would you?  Opt for a classy bracelet like this, Classic and timeless piece.
Spring Breeze Crystal Bracelet

 


These are a couple of the don'ts now lets take a look at the dos...

Wear a timepiece at work  
It gives people the vibe that you are a responsible and aware of time. Your watch doesn't have to be expensive when you are just starting out.
 Get a pair of pearls 
Yes, I know some of you would say that pearls are for old people on the contrary they are awesome for interviews, business lunches and even with evening wear. It doesn't matter if you have real or faux ones on, pearls bring out the elegents and sophistication of a women.
Golden Grid Statement Bracelet
 Play with colours
Lets say you have this lovely blue dress add a yellow statement necklace. Let your accessories express your personality through colours but keep it simple and clean cut. 
and finally please remember that less is more 
At most wear 4 accessories at once for example ( watch, earring, necklace, wedding ring). If you wear a pair of earrings go with either a  necklace or a bracelet. 
Wear no more than 3 at a time for work, maybe 4.  (Watch, earrings, necklace.  Ok, fine, 4: my wedding rings.)
