This month’s theme is “Giving Back” ~ A heightened sense of passion and purpose is what drives us to live up to our fullest potential during the summer season. As we enter late summer, we have the opportunity to reflect upon our actions to determine how we can benefit the world around us while we continue to strive toward reaching and fulfilling our personal goals The universal law of exchange states that by giving more to others, we open ourselves to receiving more of what our hearts desire. For the month of August, we’re bringing you two unique summer jewelry pieces that will help align your heart with the law of exchange to attract more abundance. Adorned with bright citrine beads, these pieces will help you open your solar plexus chakra – your center of will May your spiritual fire burn bright in a way that naturally touches the spirits of others as you work toward your own goals.
Citrine Basket Necklace Ohh, this is so my style! This is a citrus inspired pendant cradled in a woven basket made of a deep dark chocolate brown string. This has antiqued bronze beads and a simple tassel finishes the necklace. The necklace is a 34 inch long brown faux suede cord, then the 1 inch rough-cut citrine-in-a-basket pendant with a 3 inch tassel with bronze beads. In total a 37 inch long necklace, which you can double around or untie the cord to shorten. I love the long length myself. So fall like and I love the neutral colors. RV $35.00
Citrine: Solar Plexus Chakra
Citrine doesn’t contain negative energy, but it transmutes and grounds it, so it is very much a protective stone for the environment. It changes negative thoughts to positive thoughts and feelings and it a crystal that nevers needs to be cleared or cleansed after use. Natural Citrine is a premier stone of manifestation, imagination, and personal will. Carrying the power of the sun, it is warm and comforting, energizing and life giving. It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight of spring, clearing the mind and stirring the soul to action. Its frequency awakens creativity and imagination, and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages fullness of life, fresh beginnings and new pursuits. source
Citrine Bracelet This is a beautiful matching bracelet with bright honey colored citrine beads with darker wood beads and textured antiqued bronze spacer beads. They needed more spacer beads. This is so tight on my wrist. This is absurd ~ last month, the bracelet was tight and now, this month’s offering cuts off my circulation on my wrist! I don’t have a HUGE wrist – it is 6 1/2 inches, so I would like a nice 7 to 7 1/4 inch bracelet. I would love a larger size, as I stack my bracelets and the more you have, the larger they have to be, but I would be happy with a bracelet THAT FITS. I am upset as I love the shades but I cannot wear this. Once again, Yogi Surprise NEEDS TO OFFER an option on the bracelet sizes if they are going to wildly swing on the wrist sizes. You cannot easily restring from small to large ~ missing beads and you need to purchase the elastic string to do so, whereas larger to smaller just needs to snip the bracelet, remove a few beads and then re-knot. sigh. RV $29.00
Lovely Caramels I have tried their fudge candies and they are so good ~ so are these ~ very much a rich vanilla buttery taste! Made with all natural ingredients and these don’t stick to my teeth! These are dairy free, non GMO, soy free, gluten free, no HFCS, Kosher and GF cerified and made in the USA. 2 oz bag (about 11 candies) RV $2.00
Ingredients: Brown rice syrup, sweetened condensed whole milk (milk, sugar), butter, dried cane syrup, molasses, vanilla and sunflower lecithin

Once again, I cannot wear the bracelet this month and I am now beyond sad but a bit ticked off. I have giving Yogi Surprise feed back over the years to create a profile for subscribers. You aren’t going to make everyone happy with a stretchy bracelet, so why not let people select a size range? I don’t understand why it cannot be done. Now, I have been told that next month will be larger, so I am hoping!! I love the necklace a lot and I would love to see more like this style in the future. This box has a Yogi Surprise retail value of $66.00~ I go by the value of the pieces to me and once again, I feel that this box is worth it just for the necklace. Part of the proceeds from this box will go back to the local artisans that made these items and help educate their community.
