I feel passion in my veins right now...i feel heat...i feel cold...I feel like i am little crazy right now...what does that mean? Not mentally unstable but like i want to surrender to passion NOW

My new obssession...JEWELMINT.COM

My new obssession in Jewelmint.com...Have you ever been there??? OMG...if not follow this link...http://www.jewelmint.com...it was started by Kate Bosworth and her stylist Cher Coulter....its fabulous and I am sure that after people have seen this site they will try and start something like this themselves, but I am sure that no one will be able to touch this...you have to sign up but its worth it...its members only and you get to pick out a custom piece of jewelry every month and it only costs like $30. The sad part is that I joined only a few months ago and I already have 9 pieces and I will not be stopping. The jewelry is high quality and its unique to your style. You take a style quiz and they pick pieces that they think you would like, but you can also add to the selection that they give you with other pieces. It's FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They will email you with specials and when there are new selections at the beginning of the month!!!!! I am a purse person but jewelry is becoming one of my favorite things too...lol (purses I will always love you!!) This is by far the best site for jewelry that is original and unigue and FABULOUS!!!!! TRY IT, TRY IT, TRY IT!!!!!!!!!! I want to be greedy and only invite people that I know so that I can get credits to the site, but its just too amazing to not share with as many people as possible.
