Budget Friendly Valentine's Day Bracelets and Bangles!

Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner I have been eyeing a few (okay a lot!) of bangles and bracelets! I don't know about you, but sometimes Valentine's Day is too soon after Christmas as far as the budget goes! (Yikes!) Luckily, my top five favorite finds are well under $100! Three of them being under $40. Say what?! I'm loving it! 

Without further ado, here are a few of my favorites for under $100! Click the photo to go directly to the site! Budget worthy bracelets and bangles… I'm in love!

Any fellow Sex and the City lovers out there? This would be perfect for you! I just got back from NYC a few weeks ago so of course Sex & the City is on my mind! I think this bracelet is so chic! And the cobalt blue… yum! This beauty is $88.

 Hot to Trot

Anyone that knows me knows that I have a weakness for Kate Spade bangles! I think this hot pink Hot to Trot bangle is perfect for a flirty Valentine! ;) This cutie is $32.

I don't know what could be more Valentine than this Kate Spade bangle! It features the text "Cutie pie", "main squeeze", "hot stuff", "sweetheart", "baby cakes","darling", "sugar" and "love bug" engraved on the exterior. "Be Mine" is engraved on the interior. Perfect, right? :) The color comes in gold, silver and rose gold. This sweetie is $58.

Alex & Ani is one of my favorites! I bought one earlier this summer and have been smitten ever since. I love that their bracelets are simple and chic at the same time! My husband's birthstone is emerald and I think it's beautiful. I think it would be sweet reminder to have his birthstone for a Valentine's Day present. The bangle comes in all twelve different birthstones. The color of the bangle comes in Russian Gold and Russian Silver. The price is perfection at $28!

Another one of my favorite Alex & Ani bracelets that would be perfect for Valentine's Day is called "My Other Half." I love it! The rose detailing is gorgeous! It is also $28 and comes in Russian Gold and Russian Silver. 

I hope you enjoyed and found something that caught your eye! What are your favorites? Have you spotted any great Valentine's Day finds? Do tell!! :)

While I was gone for a week, my hubby bought me a Ninja. I absolutely LOVE it!! I use it at least two times a day! So far, this has been my favorite milkshake I've made:

Reese Pieces Milkshake! It tastes so good!! It is also low calorie. I LOVE Hungry Girl & her recipes!! Have you tried any? What's your favorite?

the search for a barely there turquoise

After looking more & more at Benjamin Moore's Robins Nest, it may be a little to dark for me. There isn't going to be any natural light in the bathroom, I'm thinking I need to go lighter. I LOVE the paint color at in my current bathroom {I'm painting this same color in our soon to be master bathroom} I'd love to find a blue-green in this same shade. I'm basically looking for a very very pale turquoise. Barely there turquoise. Yum! The paint color in my current bathroom was a custom paint color mix from the Lettered Cottage. When the guys mixed it at Home Depot, they actually thought it was white. That's how pale I'm looking for. I love for the accessories to be the star of the show, and the paint color to be a neutral hint of color back drop. Okay, here we go!

I haven't saw the paint swatches in person yet, but here's a two colors I'm looking at:

Benjamin Moore Lido Green

Benjamin Moore Spring Mint

I'm making a trip to Benjamin Moore & checking out their lighter colors. Any suggestions on a pale, barely there turquoise? Any brand! :)
