Accessory Love: Fierce Forward

I’ve had an accessory obsession for a long time.

Fall Cleaning: Accessories and Whatnot

I think I picked this up from my grandfather.  He always loved jewelry and loved to buy the ladies little pretty trinkets, including his favorite (and only) granddaughter.

AND… as the weight began to pack on.  Truthfully, accessories were my favorite things to shop for.  After all, I could walk into a store like Express with friends and still find SOMETHING that fit.  Necklaces, scarves, cute shoes, hats… these come in a one-size-fits-most type sizing that made me gravitate in that direction.

Nonetheless, it’s helped me acquire quite the collection.  And, old habits die hard… I do still adore accessories, especially since there are some ADORABLE ones out there!

The accessory I share today is one I didn’t expect to find.  After all, how often do you expect to run into fabulous jewels at a fitness blogging conference?  Well, truth be told, I didn’t find the jewelry there… but I met the artist at FitSocial.. and I’m so glad I did!

Meet Ashley – Fierce Forward

I don’t know HOW I didn’t get a picture with Ashley during FitSocial, but somehow I didn’t… so I am “borrowing” this picture from the fabulous Caroline (AKA The Trendy Trainer.)

When you spend the weekend with bloggers, you connect quickly… and that’s how I felt with these two!  While they both live across the country, it’s so nice to keep in touch via social media and their blogs.  I totally recommend you check out Ashley and Caroline‘s blogs… amazing!!!!

When I was poking around on Ashley’s blog – Fierce Forward For Life, I was immediately impressed by her powerful and inspiring brand.  When I found out that she had a Fierce Forward Etsy store and that she was selling intention bracelets made from colorful Fair Trade beads, I was even more excited!  Especially because, her bracelets are just GORGEOUS  and are inspired by the most BEAUTIFUL MESSAGES.

Here’s a few that caught my eye…

Honestly, I loved them ALL, especially because of the words that come with them.  Whether you’re looking to have FOCUS, to stay COMMITTED, or to just BE.  These bracelets can be your inspiration and remind you just how LIMITLESS you are.

After a few minutes on the site, I knew exactly which one I wanted…  and I loved the cute packaging it arrived in.  Check out adorable Ashley on the outside of the packaging!

And, what I found inside was even more exciting!

My bracelet reads PASSION.  Passion is something I’m truly exploring these days, and something I keep at the center of my focus.  I can’t let the small stuff cloud my vision… and I have to let my passion drive my future.  This little bracelet reminds me of this every day.

The card enclosed with my bracelet screams what I’m trying to accomplish… all created by the lovely Ashley.

Sometimes I need to remember that this is “the stuff (my) dreams are made of” and that “Passion brings (me) full circle to what (my) heart desires, to who (I am).”  I love everything about this… 

I’ve worn my bracelet every day since it’s arrived.  Some days it matches my outfit, some days it doesn’t.  Every day though, it matches my intention and reminds me to let my passion lead me.  

So often I receive comments, tweets, or email asking me how to get started on a weight loss journey or how to stay on track and focused.  If you need a reminder of why you are doing what you are doing, maybe (just maybe) a beautiful bracelet reminder will help you too.

    I love my FierceForward bracelets. I have “Passion” & “Purpose” and I wear them daily. My trainer always says “With Passion, with purpose, every rep, every set” so it’s my little reminder to myself. Love love love them!

    When I was bigger I wore tons of necklaces and earrings, I think I used
    Them to hide behind. Now I never bother, or maybe I just got lazier! Haha! Those are beautiful pieces!

  5. Caroline says:

    Aww Kel!! Thank you for the kind words :) This is so funny because I was going to get passion too! Not only do I love what that word stands for, but I too have had to follow mine fiercely to be in my job today.

    Thanks for sharing and this makes me so excited to order mine!
