The Girl Who Fell To Earth + BornPretty
______BornPretty sent me some stellar jewelry recently: this cutout star ring, an adjustable double terminated bracelet, and a crescent moon necklace. All out of this world.
______I have worked with BornPretty before and have always been satisfied with their products; though cheap in cost, the production of these items is comparable to what you'd find in stores here for $10-$15 more. The metal is actually metal, opposed to that peculiar lightweight plastic that some overseas companies use, and this metal doesn't leave green marks on your skin or become tainted over time. I still have the rings and earrings from them that are just the same as the day I received them years ago.
______So if you want 10% off your next order at BornPretty, just use the code ALT10 during checkout.
______David Bowie's passing made me one sad little nugget. Though I didn't become a huge fan of his music until college, he's been my favorite musical artist since as I listen to him daily. I'm one who is always plugged in to tunes, digging and unearthing new, off-beat artists, as well as relying on the well-known classics. Bowie has managed his way into every single one of my playlists, and I've always admired his creation of so many eclectic personalities, creative songs, and unyielding ability to be himself no matter what.
______He's adaptable as those wiggly pancake fish that blend into their backgrounds. You know the ones. Always the same, but always changing from one persona to the next with a natural ease.
______Alas. His passing was one that hit the world hard, but I know he's out there somewhere being spaceman and watching over us. He has done his duty here on planet earth. Besides, a new planet was discovered a week after his so-called passing, which many Bowie fanatics (along with myself) have reasoned that he's inhabiting.
______Coincidence? I think not.
