All about Anika (Burke)

These pictures are waaaay old. Ok, maybe just a few weeks, but in blogger years they are made of parchment and are from the covered wagon era. Well, at least before my last haircut. Which is now how I'm measuring the minutes of my life- in 6 weeks increments.

The best thing about this outfit are the earrings- I got them from the Chico, California based Anika Burke Eclectic Boutique.  A few months ago I was lucky to win a giveaway hosted by Suze from Miss Vinyl Ahoy, and I won a goody bag from Anika Burke. I was sent a HUGE package of assorted jewelry, and I have had so much fun with my new arsenal of rings, ear-rings and necklaces. 

When Anika contacted me and asked me to write a review on their special goody bags, I was happy to oblige. It's a word of mouth promotion, not offered on their website, but if you're interested, send them an email or call them to order one- it's $11.95 plus shipping, for a mystery goody bag of jewelry. 


This special is such a fun bargain! I was sent two generous pouches of jewelry from Anika Burke, much too much for me to wear on my own, so I've played Santa and gave some of the pieces away to my friends who loved it. The best scores were two pairs of feathered ear-rings, and I've been wearing a plastic floral bangle pretty much every other day since I got it. I've been wearing ear-rings,  playing around with wearing big statement ear-rings like the ones you see above. Ear-rings are something I normally wear, but, it's easy to try things you'd not normally think to order for yourself, since there is so much to choose from in your goody package.

My one criticism is that the quality of some of the pieces aren't keepers: my favorite ring (a Virgin Mary sparkler) broke on first wearing, and several necklaces and ear-rings got wrecked rather easily but for the most part, the pieces are holding up ok. At $11.95, which is the price of one stinky ring at F-21, this special is really quite the bargain; I think an Anika Burke jewelry mystery goody bag is a great way to try new trends without breaking the bank.

To order, contact Anika Burke by phone: (530) 918-8850
or email: customerservice@anikaburke.com
Call or Email Anika Burke Eclectic Boutique and order the Mystery Goody Bag for 11.95

I've noticed your Anika Burke pieces sprinkled throughout your posts, especially that bangle! Thanks for sharing some info about the line.

You look chic as always!

Hey Miss Bella Thanks for the honest review. Sorry your Vision de Guadalupe ring broke. We sort of new the quality on that one was not the greatest... It just had your name written all over it so we had to give it a try. Like always your post was amazing!

Ife' said...

Well, my friend... earrings suit you with your cute pixie cut. I say you should put them in your rotation more often. You look FABULOUS (duh!).

Faye said...

Love the "ancient' pictures of you. It's totally true though...time is interpreted totally different in my head now that I'm blogging.

Kristin said...

You look so beautiful! A goody bag full of baubles?? Killer!

Yvonne said...

I love the earrings but the best part in my opinion is the top and the boots! I love that top > it looks so cool and comfortable! Boots > you know I always love boots but the way the temps have been in my portion of the country I would sweat to death!! So I love seeing them on you!

My Heart Blogged said...

I've missed reading your blog so much. I love the buffalo checked top, and the earrings look great. I received a ring from the company, and it was broken when I got it. It sounds like their products can be a little hit or miss.

Laura Connell said...

What a great idea! A mystery bag of jewellry sounds like so much fun.
