We recently welcomed Natalie to the Lunacita ambassador programme. We wanted to find out a little more about her and your lifestyle, where she's from and all that jazz! So here goes, say hello to the lovely Natalie Zacek...
Where about’s did you grow up Natalie?
I grew up in a small town outside of Raleigh, NC called Angier!
What was the coolest thing about your hometown?
In my opinion, it was my ability to have the most fun childhood; from swimming in creeks, playing in the woods, four wheeling, and other fun outdoor activities!
You spend a bunch of time at the beach! What was your favourite beach growing up?
In North Carolina I have always loved The Outer Banks and Topsail!
Where do you live at the moment and what bought you there?
I live in Lakeland, Florida while I am in college.
Whats the best beach in your area now and what makes it so awesome?
Anna Maria Island because have you seen the water on the gulf side of Florida?! Heart eyes!!
Can you tell us a little bit about what you get up to with your Monday – Friday?
Duties: School, my job in the admissions office at school, and lots of studying. For fun: date nights, volleyball games, coffee dates with friends, and styling outfits.
And what keeps you busy on the weekends?
I head to the beach nearly every weekend! While I am there I can sit on the beach all day or I like to go to cafes and thrift. Every Sunday I go to church.
What is your favourite Café / Restaurant in your area?
Hillcrest coffee shop in Lakeland is my favorite. They literally have the best coffee I’ve ever tasted and I get it at least once a week.
Where is the coolest place you have ever travelled? And what made it so rad?
Thailand is my favorite so far. Not only is it so beautiful with beaches AND mountains; but the culture there is so amazing. It felt like I was in a different world.
Who are you currently listening to?
Drakes new album of course! And my “In my feelz” playlist is played in my car at least once a day; bonus if it’s raining and at night lol.
“Stuff you should know” on Spotify. Or sermons from pastors I like!
What would you like to do when you grow up? :P
I would love to work with people, fashion, and travel. And maybe coffee! I am not exactly sure how that would look yet...
Who inspires you?
My parents, my friends, my boyfriend, Kristen Johns from youtube, Sadie Robertson.. honestly I get inspired really easily and by anyone who is motivated, encouraging, and passionate.
If there were no boundaries, or financial barriers, what would you love to do for the rest of your time here on planet Earth?
Learn everything I can’t find on google. Read books that make me feel something. Hear inspiring stories. Make art. Do something significant for others. Help people. Find Jesus more. Writing this is making me want to start; why wait for the money to do important things?

Bali is quickly becoming the 'Ibiza of Asia' and it's doing a pretty good job at it, I must say! With an expansive and vast coastline on offer, some of the most creative humans on this planet mixed with delicious fresh produce, Bali is a pretty great starting point to create a killer beach club. Over the years we have slowly making our way around them all (If that's even possible) and today I present to you 5 of my personal favourites to date. Note, these are all BEACH clubs, not cliff top clubs in which we will get to them soon in another blog post!
We took 5 with Californian beauty and long-time blogger Francesca Smith of @frankvinyl and heard why she loves to call San Diego home, the best piece of advice she ever received and what brands she's loving right now! Jump on over for our latest interview with this beauty (And looking oh so cute in our ST JUDE pendant of course!)
Welcoming FRENCH HARVEST, a capsule collection of hoop earrings & crisp cotton bandana’s that are about to become the staples in your ever evolving jewellery box.
Simple & elegant in design, we’re pretty confident these 4 new designs of hoop earrings will be your go-to signature staples for many years to come....
Our necklaces come in a variety of lengths from 15" (Petites & almost a Choker length) to 23". Our 15", 16" and 18" length necklaces all come in our Fine Chain with the 20" and 23" length chains in our 'Everyday' Chain which is slightly heavier in weight. All items in the La Luna Rose shop clearly label the length of the chain used for that design. Unless otherwise stated, all necklaces are adjustable by 1"/2.5cm in length. Below is a diagram of how our chain lengths sit on a body. If you have a large breast area, you may find that the 23" length chain sits in between your boobs...a good thing or bad, I'm not sure, that's up to you!
|CHARITY & SALLY T-SHIRT MEASUREMENTS||SMALL (Size 6-10)||MEDIUM (Size 10-14||LARGE (Size 14-16)|
It is important to note that different countries have different sizing methods.
Most of the world goes by number sizing which is the easiest and most accurate.
Because we sell our jewellery all over the world, we have decided to stick with number sizing and have put together the below chart to help you out. The most common size for ladies is a size 7 and size 10 for man. If you are unsure of your size you can measure the inner diameter of one of your own rings and refer to the below measurements.
Feel free to email us at email@example.com if you have any further issues.
Please also note that if you are ordering a wide band ring, its usually a good idea to go up a size.
Size 6 = Ring Sizes L, M, N. Inner Diameter measures 16.5mm
Size 7 = Ring Sizes N, O, P. Inner Diameter measures 17.3mm
Size 8 = Ring Sizes P, Q, R. Inner Diameter measures 18.1mm
Size 9 = Ring Sizes R, S, T. Inner Diameter measures 18.9mm
If you require a ring in a different size in any of the designs offered, please send us an email here and we will see what our clever silversmiths can do for you.
La Luna Rose chain bracelets fit much like the beaded bracelets with an adjustable clasp. Therefore they have two/three size options for you. They sit at a total circumference of approx 15cm & 17.5cm
LA LUNA ROSE PETITES SIZING
Petites Bracelets - We have a number of options for our bracelets for little girls - they're our top seller and little girls just love them! Our Beaded tassel bracelets have an adjustable sizing system and comfortably fit a little girl from aged 3 - 14. Girls 14 and upwards are recommended to fit our Adults collection however if they have small wrists they will still fit the Petites range. To measure a little girls wrist, please wrap a piece around their wrist with 2 fingers underneath. Mark the paper, and lay flat to measure with a ruler.
Our Petites Sideshow Sally Bracelets are adjustable in length and open up to 18cm in circumference. If you don't have a direct wrist to measure, this bracelet system is almost fail safe and accommodates almost all wrist sizes.
Our Petites Sunday Sandy Bracelets measure 12cm in length with 3 options of length within the clasp system.
Our La Luna Fiesta Bracelets measure 14cm in length/circumference and all have the ability to have any of our La Luna Rose charms added to them.
Our Petites Chain Bracelets measure 15cm in length with an smaller loop at 12.5cm. If you need larger, feel free to order an adults size.
Petites Rings - Our Petites range also offers rings for little girls. Please measure your childs finger first to ensure you are ordering the correct size. We would recommend a size 3.5 for girls 6-8 and a size 4.5 for girls 8-13 and a size 5-6 for 14-17year olds. However - every finger and body is different! Any questions, just send us and email here and we would be happy to help.
