GOOD VIBES ONLY.
I’m all about it. And so is this Mejuri Evil Eye ring, in more ways than one. Talismans like the evil eye ring are thought to protect people from receiving the evil eye, which causes injury and misfortune. This ring from Mejuri is even more special because it protects and it gives back. More about that below.
When I’m having a rough day at work I love looking down at this ring as a reminder to stay positive. It’s also a great ring to have when you’re getting chewed out by opposing counsel or a particularly harsh judge. Even more, this ring seemed particularly appropriate to wear this week in light of Vogue’s harsh and hypocritical article bashing bloggers and influencers. The piece at issue, Ciao, Milano! Vogue.com’s Editors Discuss the Week That Was, called bloggers pathetic and embarrassing, and even insulted the intelligence of bloggers as a whole by questioning whether we are registered to vote. Well yes, Vogue, I am registered to vote. I also graduated from the University of Texas in 3 and a half years with a 3.987 GPA and graduated with my juris doctorate with high honors. And yes, I have a “real career” as an attorney (yes, this article did tell bloggers to “get a real career”). The article further bashed bloggers for wearing borrowed outfits – because Vogue doesn’t borrow anything for shoots, right? PLEASE. Get over yourself Vogue. Your disgusting article is stereotyping a group of entrepreneurs and cutting down women for, GASP, giving consumers what they want. Times have changed. Consumers want to see REAL people that they can relate to. A few mega influencers (Shea and Danielle) have already sounded off on this piece, and I can only hope that their responses gain more attention and support than the tasteless article published by Vogue.
A percentage of proceeds from the sale of this ring are given to The Her Initiative, which provides access to clean water and specific health & hygiene curriculum to women in the developing world. I love companies that give back. It’s so inspiring and makes me feel good about spending my money. Not only am I getting something that I want, I’m also helping someone in need. It’s a win-win.
