The Facebook Bubble Necklace

To Everyone on Facebook Buying the Bubble Necklace,

Stop buying the Facebook bubble necklace.

I know it appears to be a steal at $14.99, but one hallmark of a steal is that your casual acquaintances think you paid a lot. See the problem with the Facebook bubble necklace?

When you wear it, I will not think it is the $170 version from J. Crew. I'm not being a bitch because I just ate an entire bag of M&Ms and want you to feel as bad as me. That's impossible.  It was a family-sized bag.  I feel awful.

I'm trying to help!

You should be proud of your find, but have some discretion when it comes to sharing such a rare gem!

It is a little known fact that while Ponce and the boys were searching for their specious fountain, the women were searching for gold at Forever 21.

Did they find it? You bet!

Did they tell anyone about it other than their three best friends over a pitcher of beer and platter of cheese? HELL NO!

When the queen complimented their faux jewels, they smiled demurely and said, "Oh, this old thing?? It's been in the family for centuries," while smirking on the inside at its $3.99 price tag!  Then they quickly changed the subject to Ponce's quest and said things like, "bless his heart for continuing to search."

If you want a bubble necklace, and who doesn't, there are deals to be found off facebook. I just did a quick search and found this beauty on etsy for $15.



I am going to make this mine and neither the guy I sat next to in sophomore photography nor my mother-in-law will know where it came from or what it cost.  Yes, you will know, but you don't really know me so it doesn't count.

If you've already claimed your facebook offer, there's nothing we can do, but be forewarned that if we are friends and you wear it around me I am going to say, "Oh! That's the $15 facebook necklace, right?"

You bought it on facebook. What did you expect?

  6. That is hysterical b/c I saw that pop up in my newsfeed every day for weeks. I thought it was really cute too but then realized EVERYONE was buying it. So it no longer had it's appeal for me.
