Why California: My Cents Of Style

I am so happy to announce something new. It is from Cents of Style, my new affiliate endeavor. I've shared about this company before on my Instagram profile here.  I stress it is something new for me and I wanted to share my story behind my choice and their current sale on this necklace. One word describes this necklace.... Cool!!

I often wonder what it would be like to have lived somewhere else other than California. I look back at my memories and I sit and ponder that thought but not for too long. Why? I love California!. I was born in Southern California and grew up in Ventura County. Ventura County is one of many places where one could walk to elementary school, middle school and have that small home town feel. My childhood earliest memories occur there. 

My current home is South Los Angeles. Hollywood is where I had my first apartment. I also enjoyed the non stop craziness of city life.   One fond memory is of the various cars I owned while living there. I did and still do enjoy cars. I will save that for another blog. 

Another point about this lovely state is I can drive to the beach, the mountain areas away from the city or stay local and enjoy what the city has to offer. Plus its a 'stone-throw' away from my hometown. Added bonus for sure. I also worked all over the Los Angeles and San Fernando areas so I learned the city. Well before Siri, Google Map apps and Navigation. Anyone remember Mapquest? That was one option but I did use maps, yes an actual map book. 

Okay, I digress. California is also the state I was married in and where I became a parent. Then I became a stay at home dad. That led to me telling my parenting journey via this blog which ultimately led to me being a 'lifestyle blogger' and a brand influencer among many other hats I now wear in the social media world. So I chose 'California' as the state necklace from Cents of Style to feature on my Fashion Friday Story. California will always hold a special place in my heart. I have been here most of my life and I am firmly rooted here. A plethora of memories made, family and friends, marriage, love and loss. Life basically. 

This weekend Cents of Style is focusing on their new state necklaces. I'm very excited because this is my first opportunity to share with my audience this cool sale. The discount I'm able to share is for this weekend, Friday thru Sunday, which includes 'free shipping' on top of the sale price of $11.99. It will be good on both their original state necklaces and brand new styles. These look amazing stacked and worn together. So think of your favorite vacation spot, home state but the combinations are endless! My direct link is down below. 

Thank you for reading my first affiliate blog featuring Cents of Style. I appreciate all my followers/readers. Onward and upward.
