Under Construction…Back in 2015!

Where to begin… First and foremost I owe you a majorly humongous apology.  I apologize for disappearing and going black on the site for the last two months and with no explanation or even a sign of life of when I would be back.  The move to Dallas, TX for work has been such a rewarding experience but has definitely had it’s fair share of bumps in the road.  Like 99% of the blogging world I have a “9 to 5” that consumes a large majority of my free time and with this new position, at a brand new company I’ve struggled a bit finding the right balance.  This beautiful space that I share will all of you here is one of my most treasured creations. While I wished I’d have reached this discovery much sooner than now, I’m just happy I’m finally in a great space to get back to being an active member of the CSM community.

In preparation for the new year I’m currently working on a few new exciting updates and a few changes to help make the CSM community a more fruitful experience.  I’m bursting at the seams with excitement but will hold it in until 2015.

So cheers to an amazing year but lets raise our flutes to many more runways that await us in the new year!  In the mean time get sneak peeks of what’s to come in 2015 for CSM by following me on IG, Twitter & FB xo

September: Sapphire!

Happy Birthday to all of you Virgos & Libras born in the month of September!  September’s birthstone is the Sapphire gemstone.  It has been said that the Sapphire symbolizes purity and wisdom.  So it’s definitely not a coincidence that your birthstone being the shade of blue is associated with heavenly blessings.  Must be why your such an angel right?  Umm, not! But hey, your secret is safe with me (well pinky swear I won’t tell the really juicy ones).

August: Peridot!

Happy Birthday to all of you Leos & Virgos born in the month of August!  August’s birthstone is the Peridot gemstone.  It has been said that the Peridot is the host to magical and healing powers that protects the wearer against nightmares while at the same time is influential to being a good luck charm and conduit to having a great year.

As a Pasifika woman it’s significant to the  Pasifika communities because the Peridot symbolizes the tears of Pele, the goddess of fire and volcanoes.  This is due to  formation of the Peridot gemstone deep inside of the earth and brought to the surface by volcanoes.  So this in turn makes you royalty based on about six degrees of separation right?

July: Ruby!

Happy Birthday to all of you Cancers & Leos born in the month of July!  July’s birthstone is the ruby gemstone.  It has been said that the Ruby’s red glow comes from an internal flame that cannot be extinguished, making a gift of this stone symbolic of everlasting love.  So, who else loves you more than anyone else in the world?  Now that was clearly a trick question, because duh we all love ourselves more than anyone else ever can (well, not that we would ever admit to anyone else but it’s okay because your secret is safe with me wink, wink).

February: Amethyst!

Happy Birthday to all of you Aquarius & Pisces!  Your stunning birthstone is the Amethyst.  Celebrate the anniversary of your birth with the perfect birthstone bauble.  Your birthstone amethyst is said to strengthen relationships and give the wearer courage.  At one time, only royalty could wear the amethyst stone.  Ancient Greeks thought that the amethyst guarded against intoxication.  Another fun tidbit is that the word amethyst is derived from the Greek word “amethystos” which means sober.

January: Garnet!

Happy Birthday to all of you Aquarius & Capricorns!  Your stunning birthstone is the Garnet.  The Garnet is a special because it signifies eternal friendship and trust.  Now it all makes sense why all of the close family and friends that I have that are born in the month of January are some of my closest confidants.  Because of this special place that you hold in so many people’s hearts you deserve an extra special bauble and how great is it that your birthstone bauble resembles a pomegranate seed in shape and color.  Even more interesting is that the fruit that the Garnet resembles is highly regarded by many religions and folklore tales as being the fruit of the gods.
