I Rush, You Rush, we all scream for Sugar Rush! – FC Ambassador Guest Blog – Liz Parker

As a Fresh Collective Ambassador, I was thrilled when I was invited to the Roncey store to select some Sugar Rush jewellery to add to my already absurd collection of baubles.  Sugar Rush is designed by Jessie Tucker-Lyzwa, a stand-out chick with purple hair, though in this pic it’s PINK!

When I arrived at the Roncey store, I was spinny with delight when I saw the Sugar Rush display:

Jewellery is the icing on the cake.  Once you’ve figured out the perfect outfit, jewellery is what puts a stamp on your style.  What I enjoy about an event where black dresses are aplenty is observing how people accessorize … and make each outfit their own.

Sugar Rush’s jewellery has a sense of movement… to me, it looks like the pieces were caught in the breeze.  Outdoor elements are included, like the shapes of leaves and feathers.

I was very drawn to the purple, as it’s one of my favourite colours – look at this beauty, with the funky earrings:

But they look so much better on the wonderful Veronica Doval Slater, a fellow FC Ambassador

And I’m delighted, as she was quietly coveting them.

I also ogled Sugar Rush in beautiful red …

…. and they brought out the ham in me:
 And THEN … I spotted this gorgeous GREEN combo.  I love green as much as I love purple, and it was the whimsical feather motif that grabbed me:

 And here it is on yours truly:

I love how jewellry makes you feel.  Polished, elegant, funky … whatever the look you’re going for, the perfect set of earrings, necklace, ring, or bracelet truly is the “Jewel in the Crown”.

I also attend a party in late September at the Roncesvalles location, celebrating Fresh Collective being powered by Bullfrog Power.  This company is a 100% green energy provider, which helps their clients set up clean, renewable energy solutions.  We Ambassadors received a lovely info kit about Bullfrog, and I included in this pic with my beautiful green Sugar Rush jewellery acquisition:
