I know I may have a slight problem or addiction with jewelry and specifically charms.
Most here know that I have collected Pandora and also Trollbeads, too for the last few years.
Well, recently, I was searching for something online and came across a new charm bracelet with a shamrock on it from Alex and Ani. And yes, before I go any further, I have always loved shamrocks and what they stand for since I was a kid.
The reasoning this is as follows, because I still remember my dad telling me all about my grandmother (his mom), who was Irish and how much she loved celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with all it’s flair.
His stories and shares of the holiday, as well as, those little green shamrocks had my hooked early on.
See, I never really got to know my dad’s mom, because I was only 18 months old when she suddenly had a massive heart attack and passed away. But his stories made me feel a bit closer to her and like I said also gave me a sense of pride for that part of my heritage. Yes, I am mostly Italian, but still felt an affinity towards my Irish roots, because of this.
And then, of course, I met Kevin, who is 100% Irish and my mother-in-law also always makes a big deal about St. Patrick’s Day, which gave me a chance to celebrate this fun day in style finally.
And, now I as I said I also love my charms, all things Shamrocks and also saw this new bracelet that incorporated both, so you could probably guess what happened next!
Yes, I caved and used the little bit of money I had left from Christmas that my parents had given me as a Christmas gift on this bracelet, when I also saw that Alex and Ani was offering $5 off this month with a special code. It normally sells for $28, but was on sale for $23.
What a perfect way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year (it is on Monday) in my eyes and if you would like to get your own now, too, click the banner below (yes I am also proudly an affiliate marketer for Alex and Ani now, as well).
