AnabelNove on Etsy Re-Launched!!!

The April of this year, after a few push from friends and coworker, I re-launched my Etsy Jewelry shop! It has been 2 years since I opened my shop, hoping to let my creativity make some extra bucks for me.  But unfortunately in 2012, I got occupied with other things in life that my Etsy shop really fell off my radar.

It has already been two months since I "soft" launched my shop and I've had so many support from friends and coworkers.  They keep me going by encouraging and even buying from me!  It is very flattering to see that people are willing to pay for my work.  I am very thankful for them and they really push me to do what I love to do.  As my regular work becomes more stressful, I do find myself relaxing at home with pliers and beautiful Swarovski crystals and now gemstones to stare at and manipulate.

Since April, I re-took the pictures I originally had on the shop, looked over the product description and comp shopped at other Etsy and non Etsy sites. It really helps to have a to-do list for my shop, so I can focus on what's important now to get to what's important after.  I still have a lot of work to do but as I checked off one task at a time, I find myself more proud of my AnabelNove shop on Etsy.  

Sales is starting off very soft, but that doesn't discourage me because I mark my accomplishment by the views and "favorites" I get. Small stuff is what keeps me going. 

Here are some of my works on Etsy.

Ombré over load

With ombré hair to its max, what do you feel about it? The past 2 years I saw an overload of ombré. From tees, to scarves, to nails, to hair! Has it reached its peak yet for this Spring?

Anabel Nove on Etsy!

I just opened a new shop on Etsy.  It will feature my handmade jewelry pieces and some unworn vintage items from my grandmother's old boutique in 1980s.  There are only a few items up, I am currently trying to make more items to be listed. More to come!

You can also find some items from my shop on the widget on the right.

Coral Lip Color - CoverGirl Lip Perfection

New lip color~. For those of you who know me, I love nude lips. But at times, I want a little change and it's hard to find a brighter color that I like. After many tries, I found this one~. It's by Cover Girl - Lip Perfection in color 280 Rapture. Very warm coral and slightly metallic. Here's a photo of me with it. :-) I'm crazy for coral!!!

The creamy texture is moisturizing but not sure about having it on for a couple of hours. They stay on pretty long, but may be slightly drying. I suggest putting a lipbalm under any lipsticks you use.   They have a very subtle lipstick smell and a very subtle classic waxy lipstick taste ( which I am not a fan of).  I am very picky about lipstick or anything on my lips that have a taste.  However this one is manageable for me (for occasional usage).  The color is very pigmented and have tiny shimmers in it.
