I’ve now moved on to my bedroom from my other little side projects and yesterday I decided to tackle my jewelry. I found this wrought iron rack that USED to be brown, in my garage and decided to give it a fresh coat of paint. Voila … makes a perfect place to store some of my necklaces!
These are the ones I wear most often, if I put all of them out I would need about 20 of these. lol
Pics below are what I use to store some of my favorite bracelets and rings.
Hope you’re having a happy Labor Day weekend!

After a long weekend, some of us take more time to get back into the routine of life. Lovely dinners, with champagne kisses close off this Memorial Day. And now it’s Tuesday, back to reality.
“Make new friends but keep the old ones; one is silver and the other’s gold”
Hope your Tuesday is FAB!

So what do you think of this Chic look, I think Jennie Garth pulls it off perfectly. And for those days when your hair is having a mind of it’s own, it could be just what you need. My two favorites are Jennie’s and Maria’s, the first and last picture. For me I need a little height on top otherwise I just feel like I didn’t do my hair!
Are you going to experiment with this so called new style? And how perfect would these looks be for SUMMER.
Whether you dress the LOOK up or dress it down, find your own style of braid which looks best on you and give it a try!

You know Twitter has made an impact on your life, when a random stranger walks up to you and says, ” Hey are you Bella on Twitter “! I turned my head so quickly, as it startled me. I was in Nordstroms yesterday, and this lovely woman walks up to me and says ” I follow you and read your tweets all the time”.
It may have been my 15 seconds of fame, but it was fun and strange at the same time! She was so sweet, and kind. She continued on, discussing things in my personal life, IE; ”so how was the Bon Jovi concert”, “love the dress you bought last week”,” Oh and I just love the crystals you put on your microwave!”…. I’m sure I looked like a deer staring at headlights coming right at me…lol
It was surreal to have a total stranger know so much about me. I politely answered her questions and return to my quest for the perfect summer shoes.
This taught me two things, to be careful about how much personal information you reveal about yourself. And, just how bizarre it feels to look into the eyes of a total stranger whom is complementing you beyond belief, discussing my life, hugging me, wanting to shop with me!!!!, and realizing this is how celebrities have to live everyday of every minute of their lives! It’s kinda scary!

I get asked everyday,” Bella how did you get so many followers? “
I discovered Twitter 10 months ago, and I have not looked back since! Twitter is an amazing forum in which I am extremely passionate about. Simply put, it has changed my life!
When I logged onto Twitter for the first time, I didn’t have a clue, actually it was quite funny. Tweets were just streaming by at a rate I couldn’t keep up with. ”What are these people even talking about”, I remember thinking? Hashtags, Tweets, Social Media…..those three words had me baffled.
So I decided, I AM going to figure this out, it seems Magical, I truely LOVED IT from the start! So off I went with my first tweet, absorbing as much information as I could. I remember following a few people I felt were interesting and asking question after question.
I still feel sorry for those people today! So very funny, the innocence in which you start out with, and before long I was on my way!
I have came a long way, with almost 75,000 followers, a Blog that I adore, personal and business contacts, I have had to start organizing by catagories.
The opportunities are endless and everyday I am approached to join this or that, or to help out an organization. But since my Niche on Twitter is all about building friendships, helping spread the word on various topics and just plain being ME, I now feel I have the qualifications to share what I have learned to help Businesses, Personalities, or simply make you shine as a “Twitter Rockstar” !
It was bound to happen, and I have finally chosen an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. I have joined @JessicaNorthey and together we are Finger Candy Media! Finger Candy Media, is a Social Media optimization firm based in Arizona. Finger Candy is a nickname for the QWERTY keyboard on a laptop or mobile phone.
This company is so me, and we are about to show the world how relevant Twitter, Facebook and many more Social Media sites are not only relevant, but extremely necessary in today’s world!
I want to help you be the best and brightest STAR on Twitter, and combined with Jessica, in which her experiences encompasses 19 years experience including Radio, Television, Internet and Print Sales as well as an On-Air Radio personality. She IS the Social Media Editor of Full Throttle Country-Country Radio.
If you find, you have the need as I did to fully understand this new WAVE of communications and want to be promoted like the ROCKSTAR you are, then contact us. It’s a fun ride, once it starts. So hold on and together we can make it happen!

Ironically enough I was able to withhold this post for nine months. That’s exactly how long I have been attempting to Blog! But now that I am no longer a Rookie here and on Twitter, (this is my sophmore year ya know.. Ha ), I’ve earned the right to Bitch!
First off, why are the employees of Twitter so angry?
Just look at their Avatars, good God..it’s OK to smile! Or may it be that their just pissed off because of their new found FAME! You see they were added to the ( “Twitter Suggested Users Lists” ), I’m just sure it was in their contract. And now, they must deal with their Celebrity Status, and most are handling it quite well, don’t you think? Just try and make a request, go ahead don’t be scared..I do it all the time, just to let them know how very important they are and to give them the opportunity to be so utterly bothered by an ordinary Twit!
Secondly, The suggested user list for Twitter!
I would have aptly named it, ” The self promoting, egotistical, don’t bother me, just read my Tweets of Twitter , but PLEASE don’t ever expect us to talk or respond to you, just listen to how Fabulous we and our lives are, LIST” !! )
Third, Twitter Contests!
Can I just point out how flawed Voter Driven Contest are, So fundamentally wrong! Let’s start off with the “Shorty Awards”. OK I must admit, I have never heard of them. But someone sent me a tweet stating I had been nominated in some Random Category? So off I went to discover the absurdness of yet another Contest! Just check out these Categories and the Nominees!
In the top row David Archuletta is in 3rd Place for Customer Service?..For what? <<Look now he’s a teacher!!..in the Third Row!..And quite an accomplished Chef in the Fifth Row!!!
So what’s the point? Validation of any Contest on Twitter is zero! OK so check this one out below!! Even worse….
Ms. Twitter of the Month Contest!
Ok so is this like Playboy? I am not posing nude…trust me on that one!
This one BLOWS my mind! First off why is every other avatar Crystal Chappel? Secondly what do we win? Thirdly <<is that word?… Bots!! are voting..If you watch the statistics, just pick one person and watch the voting process, it’s crazy. Most of whom are in the top ten, do not follow anyone, do not tweet, and some only have like 100 followers?
The game this website is playing is too generate clicks, not to mention the insanity it causes for those who want validation so badly! I’ve seen it in the stream, ” Please Vote For Me ” over and over in the stream. A perfect example of this is @AriaaJaeger! Who in their right mind would say ” Vote For ME and do it every 20 minutes? “ Serious Lack of Social Skills!!!
I too would be excited if I were to received maybe a CROWN, or maybe even a SASH that said how wonderfully popular I am. Ohh and maybe a Blinking, Crystal encrusted AVATAR the says, ” Look at ME, I’m Ms. Twitter “ , ok maybe THEN I’d throw my hat into the ring and make an ASS out of myself !!!
Ya’ll know how much I love Twitter, but may I suggest they do some serious revamping. First start with some Quality Customer Service. Are their phones at Twitter Headquaters? Hmmmm, I don’t think there is?
If I disappear from Twitter you’ll know why! But don’t worry you can always find me here! : )
