The Classic Accessory: Diamond Stud Earrings

Cubic zirconia earrings brighten up your face!

Although I love to wear a variety of earrings, I always like to have classic accessories that can be worn everyday, yet add a tad of "bling".

I have experienced quite a few typhoons myself - being waist deep in water and walking outside with an umbrella only for it to crumple and fly out of my hands from the heavy winds.
