Exceeded my expectations! My summer go-to
If I were getting married on an island or the beach, this would be the dress for me. It is BEAUTIFUL! The cotton is effortless. Its lined. Fits perfectly. Im 411 & this is so flattering. I ordered the large (as others mentioned to size down due to a lot of fabric). If you make one purchase today, make it this one. You will not be disappointed. I LOVE IT!!!!
I am a big fan of spinner rings as I have a nervous condition. They are getting easier to find. But the unusual design really made the difference. It s great.

Rose Quartz Prayer Beaded Necklace Hindu Jewelry, "Pray"
Rituu honors Hinduism and Buddhism with a glistening that is crafted by hand with rose quartz, the love stone. Also known as prayer beads or rosary, it consists of 108 or beads, sometimes 109, which are flicked with the thumb during or meditation. That way the person may concentrate fully on repeating mantras. In Buddhism, the 108 beads represent the human passions, while in Hinduism their symbolism is more complex. The number may refer to the names of Vishnu and Shiva in the Mahabharat; the 108 Upanishads; the number of deities of knowledge and various sciences; and the various permutations of the soul's defects, amongst others.
According to Hindu custom, the correct way to hold the jap mala is with the right hand, draped over the middle finger and using the thumb to flick through the beads. Since it is believed the index finger represents ego, the greatest impediment to self-realization, it is best avoided when chanting on a mala.
This jap mala features 440 gemstone carats.
