Cat Jewelry

Cat lovers –whatever their ages- surely love to wear cat-shaped jewelry items. My favorite brooch is this cat one. Though it has lost two stones, I often use it. Unfortunately, I’m still hard to find cat jewelry items in retail stores here.
But in the internet, cat jewelry comes to you in various designs, styles and materials (glass, porcelain, metals, wood, etc). From pendants, pins, bracelets, earrings, rings to necklaces, you’ll find it.
Here are some examples for you:
Copper cat bracelet ($ 17.95) from

Fashionistas in UK Choose Fashion Jewelry over Precious Metal Jewelry

The fashion industry is fad driven and trends keep changing from time to time.  Many people tuned to keeping up with trends have found fashion jewelry as a cost effective option.  Gone are the days of branding anything less than precious metal jewelry as “cheap imitations”.  Fashion Jewelry in UK has many takers thanks to the variety of designs and perfectly finished products.
One of the main reasons for its popularity is its affordability.  Precious metal prices have been increasing over the years and slowly getting out of reach of many individuals.  Jewelry has always been a sought after possession, as a form of financial security and also for its glamour quotient.   The first option still holds well, but can be too expensive to keep up to the fashion trends of the season.  This is why fashion jewelry has gained popularity.  Precision tools and perfect designs offer a wide variety of choices for the customer.  It gives plenty of opportunities for designers to experiment.  Big fashion houses have started investing in the business.  They have come out with their own line of jewelry, to match up with their seasonal collection.  Many department stores offer one-stop shop experiences for clothes and accessories. 

The aesthetic designs and quality of the products make a great impact on the fashion quotient of the wearer.  They make great gift options too, thanks to their affordability and variety of choices.  It gives the designers to cater to the ever-changing scene of the fashion world.  It offers small-scale business opportunities to entrepreneurs, with many platforms to showcase their skills.  There are plenty of exhibitions and trade shows happening all year round with many retailers looking for new designs.  Online marketing is another option; many people look up the Internet for trends around the world.  There are very innovative designs on offer, and the industry sees a surge in demand during the festival season. Jewelry made of paper, beads, shells and even waste materials is gaining popularity. There are designs to cater to different age groups. It is practically easy to maintain and safe to use them too. Affordability and aesthetic designs make it a fashionable accessory to own.

Relaxation is Bliss

Relaxation is the best medicine to physical and mental health.  In order to relax, you need to get rid of all forms of tensions.  Any small thing that is disturbing you can cause stress.  The thought of being stressed itself adds to stress.  Job, home, kids, family and friends always need your attention.  Many a time you find your self hard pressed for time to meet all your social commitments.  Out of all your commitments take out some precious time for your self.  It will help you rejuvenate your mind and body. 

Stress is not associated with any particular strata of society.  It is common to every person.  Peer pressure to perform, family commitments, kids and other many issues can cause stress.  What is the point of time management if you do not have a minute for yourself?  It is time to press the panic button in this scenario.  There is nothing more important than a healthy mind and body.  Only this will ensure the best out off whatever you are doing. 

Three are a number of ways to relax.  The one to tope the list everywhere is meditation.  The other options would be yoga, sports or anything that is close to your heart, like embroidering, knitting, etc. If nothing else, just concentrate for a few minutes on your breathing.   In short, do any activity that is repetitive and takes your mind away from all those things that you do for the sake of doing.  By taking out time for yourself, you stay relaxed. 

Relaxation is a much-needed therapy.  Stress is biggest killer in our times.  Most of the life threatening diseases and life style diseases are related to stress.  Take your mind off all things that are the reason for stress.  Distract your mind by just not thinking about anything.  Forget all the stressful thoughts and instead focus on other mundane activities taking place around you.  This is also a form of relaxation.  Follow a routine life through the day, to sort out all the jobs in hand and take out precious few minutes for your self to recoup and rejuvenate.  Your mind and body need to stay relaxed to bring the best out off you.
