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?

As we’re doing our best to keep ourselves educated and updated on the Black Lives Matter movement, one of our favourite ways to do so is to listen to podcasts. We’ve been loving learning from teachers, historians, and just regular people experiencing racism and issues we don’t even know about.
As we’re launchingour new Signet Rings, why not take the time to learn more about this timeless piece of jewellery?
First and foremost, signet rings represent a wide range of personalized ring, usually representing family symbols, signs, monograms and more. They were used to represent someone’s identity and they were traditionally used to sign into melted wax. How amazing is that?! A unique representation of someone’s signature right on their finger. In that sense, signet rings were extremely meaningful.
As much as I would love to take credit for this delicious morsel of goodness I'm about to share with you, I can not. This recipe was sent to me from a friend as I begun a journey of ridding Gluten from my life.... and this guy has been an absolute saviour! For when you CBF cooking, for when you just want 'toast' for dinner, for when you're fighting every craving for a hearty 'carb-a-liscious' meal when your GF and for when you just want to wake up and not eat cereal. Introducing to you, what has deemed to be named 'Life-Changing' Loaf...
Luna & Rose necklaces come in a variety of lengths from 18" to 23". Our 18" chain necklace is made from our Fine Chain with the 20" and 23" length chains in our 'Everyday' Chain. These are the same chain design, just slightly heavier in weight for the longer lengths. For a rough guide (as we all have different, amazing bodies) the 23" chain sits around or just above your nipple line...
We're big fans of layering necklaces and I'm pretty sure you are too. All of our chains are adjustable in length by 2" to make sure you can style your layers to perfection and mix them up with other pieces in your jewellery wardrobe.
Although all necklaces are adjustable, for the perfect layered look we suggest that you purchase your necklaces on different length chains. This way you get to see the beauty of both pendants and there's less chance of scratching! We also personally like wearing the smallest pendant on the shorter length and the larger heavier pendants longer. That's just our personal choice though, we're all awesome & individual humans and ultimately you get to decide how you style your pieces!
Below is a little guide of some of our favourite pieces layered and their lengths:
|SALLY T-SHIRT MEASUREMENTS||SMALL (Size 6-10)||MEDIUM (Size 10-14||LARGE (Size 14-16)|
|CLASSIC 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 4 = Ring Size H 1/2. Inner Diameter measures 14.9mm (Recommended Pinky Size)
Size 5 = Ring Size J 1/2. Diameter measures 15.7mm (Recommended Pinky Size)
Size 6 = Ring Sizes L, M, Inner Diameter measures 16.5mm
Size 7 = Ring Sizes N, O, Inner Diameter measures 17.3mm
Size 8 = Ring Sizes P, Q, Inner Diameter measures 18.1mm
Size 9 = Ring Sizes R, S, Inner Diameter measures 18.9mm (Recommended Male Size)
Size 10 = Ring Sizes T 1/2. Inner Diameter measures 19.8mm (Recommended Male Size)
Size 11 = Ring Sizes V 1/2. Inner Diameter measures 20.6mm (Recommended Male Size)
Size 12 = Ring Sizes X 1/2. Inner Diameter measures 21.3mm (Recommended large Male Size)
