Meet our next Alisa Michelle Brand Ambassador, AJ Feuerman. Here's her story:
I was laid off from my job a couple months ago and it was devastating -- as losing any job unexpectedly would be. I was trying to keep a regular routine and stay active -- I did not want to see myself slipping into a depression or become lazy. But some days it was a struggle. Sometimes I was overcome by sadness because I loved my job and someone took it away from me.
In any case, on one such day, when things seemed gloomier than usual, I forced myself go go for a walk and eventually landed on Tujunga. I went into your store and I decided that however impractical it may seem to spend money, a new pretty piece of jewelry might be just the thing to cheer me up. I opted for the emerald because it's my birth stone and with my birthday approaching, it seemed like a good reminder that tomorrow is always a new day. I wear the necklace all the time now and it never fails to cheer me up. It's also become something of a good luck charm to me because I was wearing it when I interviewed for a new job that I was eventually offered. And I will be wearing it on my first day.
