Why We Buy Jewelry

OK, it is not needed. We can still live without. So why are we buying jewelry?

For men and women, jewelry is something that has been with humans throughout the history. It’s amazing to see what jewelry represented and how each region had different styles of jewelry. From jewelry, we could tell where they were from or what their social status were. In modern days now, jewelry is for everyone to enjoy, not just for limited people, also the function of jewelry has been changed a lot.

Self gifting is up

How many times you went out to buy a gift for someone else and ended up buying yourself more? We’ve all been there and done that. You know yourself better than anyone. It’s easy to find the one for yourself. Find the ones you need or love is almost as if to find yourself. How would it not be fun to find yourself, right? When you see what you like, you just gotta have it. Sometimes you wait and save money to get what you want. Awarding yourself is actually a good way to do more and better in your productivity. Treat yourself to something nice when you accomplished something. Remember people treat you in the way you treat yourself.

Wearing Jewelry is a great way to express yourself

Jewelry is very personal. Most of people wear what they like. Unless they like it, they wouldn’t wear or buy it. In some cases, they don’t even look good on them. Still they wear it because they like it and because they want to. Some people don’t go out of the house without loading up necklaces, while for others simple studs will do. Some women prefer an armful of bangles, and some load up on finger rings. No matter your preference, bits of baubles you wear are all about you. You are showing who you are.

Desire to express yourself is natural, and it’s important to do so. That’s why people switch what they wear each day or for special events. They express different sides of themselves for each occasion. Big or small, real or fake, layered or singled, understated or overstated…you wear what you want to show about yourself to others. On a casual day you’d like to be playful, you wear colorful bracelets, on a presentation day when you mean business, you wear a long necklace with no focal point, or for a friday night date, you wear dangling earrings to look flirty or sexy. Tell people what you mean with your jewelry.

Jewelry boosts your confidence and mood

Yeah, it’s a little thing that changes your entire mood for the day. It’s just a part of what you wear, but that one piece you decide to wear may perfect your day. Whether fancy or costume, jewelry adds oomph to your wardrobe like no other. You can make your ordinary outfit outstanding with jewelry. It’s your spirit you are wearing. Your jewelry completes your look, makes a smile on your face in front of a mirror, and makes you confident to be in front of people. When you know what you put on yourself makes you look good, you are confident, and believe me, confidence shows. Wear that satisfies you for the day. Wear what makes you stand tall and spread your shoulders in front of people.

5 Traits Successful People Possess

We all want it. Success.

Success means different to each one of us. Building a multi million dollar business is a success, making a fame in entertainment industry is a success, making their family happy every day is a success, or visiting all countries on earth could be a success. What is your success you define?

Many successful people have common traits. We will look at them today and learn to help our successes come true.


Success is hard. It doesn’t matter what your dream or life goal is. That your personal dream/goal is tough to achieve for you. Without your passion for it, you will not last until you get it. Passion will push you to take risks. It’ll also help you going through the risks lined up ahead.


This is hard. Especially when you get older, we all tend to stay in our comfort zone. How much do you want your dream to come true? Are you willing to do whatever it takes? The bigger dream you have, the bigger risk you will have to take. Do people say you will never make it? Then prepare for the biggest risk you will ever have to take on to get to where you want to be. Jump on that risk. Don’t think it, Do it.

successful people: quote by richard branson spend more time smiling

quote by richard branson: image from pinterest.com


Unless you believe that you can do it, you will not make it. Unless you believe in yourself, nothing will happen.


Having a dream or a goal is natural if you want to succeed in something. But, that’s not all you need. You need a purpose. Why is that your goal? Why is that your dream? What do you really want by achieving your dream/goal? Your purpose of your dream and success will be the engine to your persistence until you accomplish your goal.


For me, personally, this is the toughest part in success, and I know a lot of people agree with me. Sometimes, it all depends on this too. You have to be willing to be the runner in a long (and sometimes lonely) marathon. Your path might be long and  slow paced. You’re panting, you’re sweating, and you can’t even see the end. This is where success really tests us. Persistence is the last puzzle you need to complete your success. Don’t let anything stop you. Don’t give up in the middle.


You have one life. You’re the only one who can live that life. If you have had this icky squirms in your heart for a while and you know you will regret it if you don’t try, just jump over the fear and go for it. Start it today. You have the power to change. It’s all up to you.

Jewelry of the Month No.7 Brass Jewelry

Brass accessory is perfect to wear for Fall and Winter fashion. Brass or copper jewelry is a good change of pace for cool and modern design lovers.

What is Brass?

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. If you’re confused about the difference between bronze and brass, bronze is principally an alloy of copper and tin. Brass itself looks like light gold color, but combined that with antique tone makes unique proposition to fashionistas, designers, and stylists.



Brass as material is more economical compared to gold and silver, and more and more fashion jewellery come with varieties of brass. It is commonly associated with a ‘vintage’ look which makes it perfect for fall and winter, but also you can find brass taking on new forms and acquiring a reputation for being modern. PinKixx combines brass with geometric shapes to give absolutely cool and modern looks.

Why Brass Jewelry?

Nowadays, brass is no longer associated with door knobs, trumpets, or locks. Fashion jewellery that incorporates brass metal is fast acquiring status as celebrities and designers flock to wear brass. It is not strange to own at least a few brass jewelry in your collection. Brass jewelry is also treated as unisex jewelry, so you can wear your boyfriend’s necklace for your benefit too.

Brass jewellery can also be dainty and light, and not just chunky. There’s a common misconception that it’s a material that’s weighty, but contemporary jewellery designers are proving that it’s as flexible as silver or gold.

For people who worry about allergies, please make sure to get Nickel-free ones.

Best Way to Wear Brass Jewelry?

Layer them! PinKixx always choose simple over too much, but brass jewelry might be the one that we would go for ‘more.’ Simple designed or simple color paletted ones are great to layer together and still look elegant and not noisy.

Not Sure How to Care of Brass Jewelry?

Brass is relatively resistant to tarnishing, and taking care of your brass jewellery is really pretty simple. That makes it a great material to use in fashion jewellery.

When it comes to cleaning, maintaining your brass jewelry is straightforward. Firstly, you can wash it with dish soap and warm water. That’s it. It’s that simple. To clean shiny brass with lemon juice, you can either use it neat, or mixed with vinegar or salt or baking soda. Alternatively, you can use either sour milk, natural unflavoured yoghurt, or whey to clean your brass. Natural products offer a genuinely effective way of keeping your brass jewellery clean and blemish-free.

Quick Beauty Tips #4 for Professional Women

Our PinKixxes are always on the move and cramp as much as possible into their schedule everyday. So here are our easy breezy beauty tips #4 for busy professional women. All tips are from professional makeup artists and skincare experts, and most of all, you can follow these tips without wasting your time at all. This time we gathered information about face only. Ready? Go!


Ah~~~ How many times we get up with red or puffy eyes? Try blending a creamy concealer onto your lids and into the inner corners of your eyes before you apply any eye makeup. This will give your shadow a base to stick to and conceal any redness. Just a light application will have you looking well rested, even when you’re not.

Long, fanned-out eyelashes also instantly make eyes look well rested. Try this wide-awake tweak by makeup artist Jessica Liebeskind: Using mascara, sweep middle lashes upward toward brows; inner corners, toward nose; and outer lashes toward temples. Always choose black — darker hues offer the most definition. And skip lower lashes; undereye smudges make you look wiped out.

It’s okay even if you don’t have a peptide-pumped eye cream on hand. To tighten skin, tap lip balm onto the area around your eyes. The deep moisture keeps skin smooth. Avoid balms made with petroleum; it can cause foundation to cake.


Apply lip primer or concealer, and then line the lips with lip liner that is a similar shade as the lipstick, which helps reinforce the color and finish off with your lip stick or color. Matte lips last the longest, but if you are choosing a hydrating gloss or top coat of gloss, then make sure to press the color onto your lips before applying the last coat.

Cover your face with a towel soaked in hot water for 10 seconds, then spread on a thick layer of cream or a moisturizing mask. “The heat swells pores, allowing the line-plumping ingredients to sink deep into skin,” says FITNESS advisory board member Howard Murad, MD, an associate clinical professor of dermatology at the University of California at Los Angeles. Cut and place pieces of plastic wrap over cheeks, chin, nose, and forehead to seal in hydration, and remove and tissue off after a few minutes.


Mix one part foundation with one part liquid illuminator, and then use your fingertips to massage it all over your face. Top it off with a dusting of a light-reflecting shimmer powder.

There you have it! Quick and easy, right? Try them next time.
