I love the color of the gold bracelet. I really like the color and quality of this bracelet. It forms to my wrist which helps it not fall off. I have a very small wrist so most bracelets are too loose for me to wear. However, it seems that when I tighten the bracelet to my wrist it is not centered on my wrist.
The word is always a little crooked even if I take it off and try to reset the bracelet once I tightened it. I love this bracelet! It's a great daily reminder, yet not chunky and it doesn't get in the way! You can't go wrong! Perfect in every way. Great quality, beautiful bracelet.
I was extremely proud to present this bracelet to my daughter as a birthday gift! I'll be ordering more very soon! NEW Mantras. Loved one. For Men. Teammates and Coworkers. Gift Card. Mantra of the Month August Mantra of the Month. Mantra of the Month Subscription Box.

It gave Swift, 18 at the time, the distinction of being the youngest artist in history to have the year's best-selling album. As of July , the album has sold 7. In all, Fearless has sold more than 9. Winning Album of the Year at age 20, Swift became the youngest artist in the history of the Grammy Awards to win the award. She would later win her second Album of the Year six years later. When later signed to Big Machine Records , Swift compiled her Taylor Swift album of material written during her publishing contract, and expected to do the same for her second album.
She said, "I've been very selfish about my songs. I had this dream of this project [ Taylor Swift ] coming out for so many years now that I just stockpiled. I'm so happy that I did because now we have a second album full of songs and a third album full of songs, and I don't have to lift a finger.
I'll find a quiet place in some room at the venue, like the locker room. As a result of writing subsequent to touring, Swift self-penned most of the material. If you're in Arkansas , who's there to write with?

Fearless Salary Negotiation: Finally Get Paid What You’re Worth
Primarily, she did not want to alienate her fans with songs about life on the road, for she could never relate to songs of the sort when younger. She continued, "I really try to write more about what I feel and guys and love because that's what fascinates me more than anything else — love and what it does to us and how we treat people and how they treat us.
So pretty much every song on the album has a face that I associate with it.
Adding it did not "take much [for her] to get that sort of emotion out in a song",  she explained physical intimacy did not have to resort to kissing to feel disappointment, frustration, or heartbreak. Having grouped over 75 songs,  recording with Nathan Chapman , who produced all but one song on Taylor Swift ,  commenced soon after having completed touring with Strait;  in the process, Swift made her record producing debut. Sound-wise, it's the kind of songs I like to write, which are country songs, but I guess because of the subject matter and because of some of the melodies I love to use, I guess they have crossover appeal.
Swift conceived the title track with Rose and songwriter Hillary Lindsey while touring. It is based on an instrumentation with acoustic guitar , fiddle , and banjo  and lyrically speaks of taking courage during a date. Feeling inspired by William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet , one her favorite narratives, she self-penned the entire track on her bedroom floor in approximately twenty minutes. The singer then made a phone call to Rose asking for her aid in continuing the song, which was completed in approximately forty-five minutes.
Out of the sympathy she felt towards him, Swift developed a concept for a song, and later developed the story line in which she was in love with him. In the ballad " Breathe ", the accompaniment consists entirely of string instruments ,  and Swift singing in regards to love-gone-wrong scenario. The two arranged a writing session to coincide with Caillat's upcoming concert in Nashville, Tennessee ,  where they composed "Breathe" about Swift losing a friend very dear to her.
Raged by his disparaging and inconsistent behavior towards her,  she stormed into Rose's house, and vented about the scenario. She described how she grew tired of his attitude and the discrepancies between his sayings and actions, among other concerns. They consequently put all her ramblings into "Tell Me Why". He was able to relate to the plot, being that he is usually the complicated person in relationships.
The two approached the song from two different angles while writing it, which she described to be incredible. It is an understated ballad, and the only song on Fearless to be written in simple verse form. The song was inspired by an incident during middle school, when Swift called several of her peers on the phone and asked if they wanted to go shopping with her. However, every girl had a different excuse for why they couldn't go. Eventually, Swift's mother agreed to take her to the local mall.
When they arrived, Swift saw all of the girls she had called on the phone, goofing around in Victoria's Secret. After reassuring to herself that it would be different in the future, she wrote the beginning of "Change". After completing the album's first track, Swift reconsidered her personal definition of the word "fearless". It means that you have a lot of fears, but you jump anyway.
Finding a fearless element to the themes and messages behind the songs, Swift decided to title the album Fearless. This album is called Fearless , and I guess I'd like to clarify why we chose that as the title. To me, Fearless is not the absence of fear. It's not being completely unafraid. To me, Fearless is having fears, Fearless is having doubts.
Lots of them. To me, Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death.
