We have at least one wedding invitation in our mailbox, and we’re sure it’s only the first of many we’ll receive in the coming months. It’s official, event season is…
Remember mood rings? Those silver rings that would change color depending on your mood, at least they were supposed to. Ours always seemed to be stuck on black, not sure exactly what that says about us. The thing about mood rings is that even if they do show you the correct mood, they never did anything to help your mood. Like, if ours was always black, meaning we were constantly moody, afraid, and angry (or we were just always cold), we thought it would cool if it could have some magical power to make us feel better. Sadly we have yet to find such a magical ring. However, instead of a magical ring, you can wear certain crystals to help with the balance of your emotions. Crystals contain certain energies and the way that energy interacts with your own can actually improve your mood, make you feel calmer, or help with a whole array of ailments and states of mind.
Tangerine quartz helps with creativity, passion, playfulness, and inspiration. It is said to encourage your inner child and stimulates a joyful energy. Wear this if you are feeling uninspired and down (might also help on days you’re feeling “old”).
