It’s that time of year again – Valentine’s Day is approaching.  Now, I’m kind of late the punch in getting this post up this year, but I digress… and it’s getting done anyway, right?  I’ve said this time and time again, but while my husband and I celebrate Valentine’s Day, we both feel that our love for one another should be shown and given every single day of the year – every day of our lives.  Let’s face it, some of you may find that corny, but the fact of the matter is… we shouldn’t need a holiday to celebrate love, right?  Regardless, each year I share a great little gift guide for you – whether you decide you are going to take advantage of it for the holiday or any time of the year or use it to treat yourself, it’s entirely up to you.  So, without further adieu, let’s get into some Valentine’s Gifts shall we?

Valentine's Gifts, gifts, gift guide, gift idea, Valentine's Day, love, sentimental, sentiment, rings, silicone rings, body care, skin care, pampering, spa, love,

Let’s talk about rings… jewelry per say.  Now, if you’ve been a follower of this blog for a while, then you know that my husband is a law enforcement officer.  Over the years we have looked for rings that he can use that are not only stylish, but that will allow him to be able to use his rings to work.  In the type of job he has, a metal, gold or silver band can injure the finger and are a huge safety concern.  While it’s allowed for them to use it, it’s suggested that they use a silicone band to help protect against injury and to aid in safety.  That’s where FX8 (Fixate) comes in to play.  These fun silicone ring bands are made of Premium Medical-Grade Silicone.  They are stylish, functional and definitely durable.  The are comfortable to wear with a tapered dome design and are available in Men’s & Women’s styles and sizes.  I like the fact that they offer custom engraving and these rings are designed for an active lifestyle.

Outside of work, we can use our regular wedding rings, but while my husband is at work, I know that this ring will work well for him.  Athletes, racers, extreme sports participants, fitness and gym trainers, mechanics, military personnel, construction and factory works and law enforcement officials all enjoy wearing these.

Each Fixate ring comes with a durable ring bag with a rugged metal “S” clip that is large enough to fit your drivers license, credit card, cash, ring and earbuds.  They are priced reasonably, starting at $19.95+ and while they are not the ideal choice for many, in our instance, it works for my family and our lifestyle.  They come in a variety of different colors too – so I think they are perfect for anyone and they are definitely an affordable, cost effective choice.

Now, I consider Valentine’s Day to also be Gal-entine’s Day.  A fun way to celebrate your lovely gal pals is by giving them a little treat for themselves.  Let’s face it, most of us love makeup and what better way to have a little fun and treat ourselves and our gals by giving them some makeup delights.  Bodyography is a new to me brand, as well as Omega Labs USA.  I thought this would be an awesome time to share the products with you while giving some ideas for shade choices that make great gifts.

Looking for a classic red lipstick?  Try out Bodyography’s Lipstick in Red China ($17.00 – 0.13 oz/3.7g).  I talk about how I think red lips are so enduring and this shade is showstopping.  With a satin matte finish, this gorgeous and long lasting lipstick is super-pigmented and contains moisturizing Aloe Vera as the base to help protect the lips from signs of aging.  Rich mineral pigments provide amazing color payoff and you can find a variety of shades in ranges from pinks to purple and nudes as well as finishes of creams, shimmers, sheers and satin mattes.

The Bodyography Glitter Pigments ($23.00 – 0.105 oz/3g) are also a great choice for a little sparkle any time of year.  These one of a kind eye shadows are made with a technology that incorporates the saturation of a loose pigment, the cushion of a cream, and the silkiness of a powder.  These gorgeous pigments are high glitter with a gorgeous pearl finish.

Valentine's Gifts, gifts, gift guide, gift idea, Valentine's Day, love, sentimental, sentiment, rings, silicone rings, body care, skin care, pampering, spa, love,

This gorgeous shade I have here is called Halo.  It’s a very shimmery and sparkly silver that reminds me of tinsel.  This color is quite bold but would make a wonderful eye lid topper to add a little sparkle and shine or popped right into the inner corner of the eye to brighten the eyes while adding a little sparkle.

Valentine's Gifts, gifts, gift guide, gift idea, Valentine's Day, love, sentimental, sentiment, rings, silicone rings, body care, skin care, pampering, spa, love,

There are eight colors to choose from total.  A little of this product will go a long way and I definitely suggest applying this product wet or foiled using a synthetic brush or with your finger and utilizing tapping motions when applying the product to the lid or where ever you want to go.  This is not your usual mica style pigment where it is finely milled.  These pigments are much more glittery so using these as a standalone shadow may pose some challenges.  But, they are glittery and gorgeous and I think definitely something fun for anyone to try.  Besides… we all love glitter, don’t we ladies?

Valentine's Gifts, gifts, gift guide, gift idea, Valentine's Day, love, sentimental, sentiment, rings, silicone rings, body care, skin care, pampering, spa, love,

I love getting nail polish as gifts and these gorgeous polishes from Omega Labs are long wearing lacquers available in a wide array of high fashion shades.  Omega Labs lacquers are free of DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor.  I have the color 389 Peek-A-Boo, a gorgeous nude toned soft peach shade is that is perfect for every day wear or a night out on the town.  The shade is neutral and gorgeous.  Omega Labs Nail Lacquers retail for $7.00 (0.44 fl.oz.)

Now, I obviously couldn’t leave out a little bath and body action, right?  I mean come on… nothing says Valentine’s Day like a little body treatment.  One of my favorite Bath & Body brands, FarmHouse Fresh released this gorgeous Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set that features the White Velvet Hand and Body Creams, Body Wash and Candle all of which have the irresistible whoopie pie aroma.  Let me just say – this is a set that I love and have purchased one for each of my sisters this year.  I know they will LOVE it.

Packaged in a “ready to gift” box, this Deluxe Gift Set offers one of my favorite fragrances from FarmHouse Fresh.  I am loving the buttercream aroma that wafts through the air when I open any of these products.  This gorgeous set includes these wonderfully smelling delectables (do not eat them) amd retao;s fpr $54.00.  I can’t rave enough about this set and I loved it so much the last month that I had to pick up a set for each of my sisters (I have two) because I know they would love it.  With moisture boosting properties in each of these and a great smelling candle to fill a room with a sweet fragrance, I’m a happy camper.

*I plan to have a review detailing each product in the next week or so, so stay tuned for that.

Not everyone is into body care, makeup and jewelry – but house decor is always something fun.  That’s why I am recommending a gorgeous Mandala Tapestry from Rajrang.  Whether you decide to get a Single, Double or Round tapestry these are just gorgeous pieces of art.  I use mine as a throw, but you can definitely use it anyway you please.  A few popular ways are to use them as a wall hanging, home decor and in some cases, just like me – some may want to use this as a layout blanket.  I have taken it to the park or beach to lay on while reading a book.  These are made of a good quality fabric and are absolutely gorgeous.  Did I mention these were affordable?  I even like using these as backdrops to my videos and photos because they are so easy to work with.  Starting at about $10.00+, these beauties would make a great gift for anyone, anytime of the year.

Last on my list is some gorgeous fragrances from DefineMe which I think would make an absolutely wonderful gift for any of your gal pals.  This is the Girls’ Night Set which includes the Audry and Sofia Isabel fragrances for $74.00.  This gorgeous set includes a combination of romantic florals and sweet intoxicating citrus.

Audry’s notes include:  jasmine, peony, rose and sandalwood

Sofia Isabel’s notes include:  mandarin, black currant, jasmine and sugar.

Layered together this set is a wonderful fragrance I absolutely enjoy wearing and I think many of my girlfriends would enjoy this as a gift.

DEFINEME GIRLS' NIGHT | SET OF 2

Now that I have shared a few favorites with all of you, I think you’ll have a list of fab items you could share with a loved one or pick up for your best friend or yourself.  I often get asked why it is that my lists like these are so odd and often times provide “interesting” items.  Here’s the deal… I love sharing a variety of products with all of you and many times I select them based on the fact that they are what I’m liking, enjoying and are favorites at that time or any given moment.  These are just suggestions of products I’ve tried, purchased or that I was sent to try and I like.  Ultimately, it is up to you to decide if this is something you may want to check out for yourself or to buy as a gift.  I also didn’t include many “male friendly” items in this gift collection this time around, mainly because I am just not sure what the hubby would like this year so I’m at a lost as to what to suggest.  Remember, like I said before – Valentine’s Day should be considered an “every day” kind of holiday.  Love should be celebrated each and every day.  Heck, my husband and I do it and it is a part of who we are.  No matter what you decide, make your Valentine’s Day something special – even if it means just treating yourself to something you like.

Happy Love Day, Every Day!

When it comes to jewelry, I’m pretty picky.  I’ve discussed this time and time again and have mentioned it before, but because I have sensitive skin – finding the perfect jewelry piece can be a challenge.  I am also someone that tends to gravitate towards dainty pieces that offer a statement without looking gaudy or too overdone.  Let’s face it, we all know that I’m a casual girl and prefer a pair of jeans and boots to slacks and heels.  But, that’s what makes our world so unique and fun… it’s that we all have our own individual style and flare.  For me, I love something that is personal, offers a special touch and if it’s gold… hey, we got a winner.  Today I’m going to introduce you to gorgeous personalized jewelry from Six Sisters Beadworks.  I love a sweet piece of jewelry and this one, well it absolutely screams Honey… literally. lol

I received the Hand Stamped Gold Cuff Bracelet – $102.00.  When it comes to jewelry I look for attention to detail and I’m absolutely in love with this bracelet.  It is a smooth 14K Gold Filled cuff that is hand formed and personalized.  This piece is simplistic, but classy and can be worn anytime with anything.  I am plus sized and found that this cuff fit perfectly and I was able to bend it open to place it onto my wrist with ease.  You can personalize your cuff with special names, initials, date or phrase and I chose to go simple with just my name – HONEY.

You know, I’ve said this time and time again… but who I am today and what I have become was in part molded for me by those before me.  My parents, my grandparents, family and friends who have inspired who I am as a person today.  I recently was introduced to a beautiful Angel Locket by Yourself Expression and I wanted to share with you this beautiful piece that has completely won over my heart.

Yourself Expression, Angel Locket, Chime, Guardian Chimes, The grommet, accessory, jewelry, locket, gold, beautiful, fashion, style, jewelry piece, review,

These beautiful Angel Lockets are the perfect way to express love or remembrance (or both).  These lockets are unlike the traditional lockets you are accustomed to.  They are bold, but dainty and offer gorgeous geometric shapes to compliment who you are as a person or your personal style.  Each locket features filigree-like detailing and crystal accents.  What makes these lockets different than your traditional ones is that instead of holding a picture inside of your loved one, each locket houses a sphere with a chime inside.  Each necklace can be personalized to fit your taste by choosing the color of the sphere, making your choice something that is symbolic to you or simply your favorite shade or hue.

Yourself Expression, Angel Locket, Chime, Guardian Chimes, The grommet, accessory, jewelry, locket, gold, beautiful, fashion, style, jewelry piece, review,

The chime inside is subtle, light and not distracting at all.  It serves as a reminder that someone you love is thinking of you and always with you in spirit.  Each locket is meant to keep love and protection around you or the person you gift it to.

Teen Entrepreneur Shelby Golguski and her brother Gordon created Yourself Expression to share things they love with others – young and old.  Their Angel Lockets merge customized accessories and an on-trend look perfectly.  There are various different lockets in different shapes, designs and finishes that make these so pretty and unique to your personal style.

I have the Yourself Expression Spiral Design Angel Locket in Gold with a Silver Chimer.  My chain is made of stainless steel and my locket is silver plated with a copper base.  My chimer is a clay-painted ball that makes a soft chime when you move.  Each Angel Locket can be easily cleaned and wiped dry and you should take care in not wetting it or wearing in water.  The chain is 32″ and the locket 1″ in size.

Yourself Expression, Angel Locket, Chime, Guardian Chimes, The grommet, accessory, jewelry, locket, gold, beautiful, fashion, style, jewelry piece, review,

I have had this locket now for about a month and have absolutely fell in love.  It reminds me of my childhood and if you know anything about me, you know that each jewelry piece I use consistently has some type of significant meaning to me.  The piece is lightweight and I absolutely love the soft chime I hear when the necklace moves about it.  After using this consistently over the last month, I also love the fact that it hasn’t tarnished on me or turned my skin green as well.  Most jewelry pieces will do that to me after the first use if they are not real.  It’s sturdy and really well made.  Each locket is $20 and I look forward to picking up one or two more to add to my collection because I am absolutely in love with my locket.

Yourself Expression, Angel Locket, Chime, Guardian Chimes, The grommet, accessory, jewelry, locket, gold, beautiful, fashion, style, jewelry piece, review,

They say that when a loved one passes, you will carry a piece of them in your heart always.  What makes this locket so wonderful is that the little chimes that come from it are little reminders that I’m never alone.  As a lover of mythical creatures like fairies and unicorns, I am reminded that there is always a little bit of pixie dust somewhere to help brighten my day and that I always have angels over my shoulder.

Yourself Expression, Angel Locket, Chime, Guardian Chimes, The grommet, accessory, jewelry, locket, gold, beautiful, fashion, style, jewelry piece, review,

I think this will be a timeless piece for years to come and a great gift for yourself or a loved one.  Angel Lockets are a unique gift and the perfect little treasure for anyone to have.  It’s affordable, well-made and stylish.  I love the concept and enjoy the product and I’m proud to share it with all you today.

What about you, do you think Angel Lockets is something that you would enjoy or a loved one would like as a gift?  Have you heard or seen anything like this before?

As a blogger I receive some of the coolest products on the market sometimes and it’s always so exciting and rewarding considering all the work I put into my blog.  I work with various PR Companies as well as different affiliates and have had the opportunity to try out products I would either only dream of or never heard of before.  Recently I was sent the Bonus Box by Rakuten Affiliate Network.  I have been a Rakuten Affiliate now for quite a few years and really considered this Bonus Box to be such a wonderful surprise, but also something fun for brands and advertisers to engage with one another.  This fun box has given me the opportunity to try out some of the affiliates offered through Rakuten so that I can share great products with my readers as well.

As I mentioned previously, the Bonus Box by Rakuten Affiliate Network is a great chance and opportunity to bloggers such as myself to try out products from brands that offer affiliate links on the Rakuten network.  I was one of 50 chosen publishes to receive the Q1 Bonus Box by Rakuten and was so happy to see that the box included fun fashion and lifestyle products by the advertisers, all of which go great with my blog’s demographic.  Today I’m going to share with you the products that were included as well as the brands.  Check out some of these awesome goodies, they make great gifts and are perfect for the Spring and Summer months.  This awesome box includes a value of about $400.00 worth of products and gift codes.

#ranbonusbox, bonus box, rakuten affiliate, bonus box by rakuten affiliate, ranbonusbox, sweaty betty, dawgs, folli follie, jus by julie, six:02, links of london, jewelry, fitness, flip flops, footwear,

Some of the brands included in this Bonus Box included Gift codes to purchase items through their online stores (Dawgs and Jus by Julie) while products were also included from brands like Sweaty Betty, Links of London, Folli Follie and Six:02.

#ranbonusbox, bonus box, rakuten affiliate, bonus box by rakuten affiliate, ranbonusbox, sweaty betty, dawgs, folli follie, jus by julie, six:02, links of london, jewelry, fitness, flip flops, footwear,

I received a really cool drawstring bag and hair tie from Six: 02 that can be used for the gym to store or carry your workout gear or for hiking and / or every day use.  From Sweaty Betty I got a Black Racerback Athlete Workout Vest ($50.00).  Others who received the Bonus Box may have gotten a t-shirt in place of the top I received because this plus size woman needed something to fit her girls… so they changed it up some in order to accommodate my plus size.

From Folli Follie I received a gorgeous Happy Nugget Bracelet ($75).  This beautiful and trendy bracelet is in a fun and flirty orange color that is perfect for Spring and Summer and makes the perfect accessory.  The Happy Nugget Collection includes beautiful, feminine and playful accents to infuse some shine into your day or evening outfits.  These can be worn together or stacked with similar pieces in different shapes and colors to compliment your style.

The Links of London White Topaz Pearl Drop Earrings ($150) are inspired by integrity and purity of pearls and are Links of London’s limited edition piece.  These sophisticated and versatile earrings look luxurious and have a meaningful addition to any jewelry collection for the Spring and Summer season.  They are absolutely gorgeous – lightweight and are showstopping.

Dawgs provided me with a $50 gift certificate which I used towards a new pair of flip flops for myself and one for the husband.  I love these for the beach and since Spring and Summer mean beach time in Hawaii, these make great additions to our footwear.  Dawgs offers comfortable and affordable footwear for the whole family and their mission is to help out your tired feet.  These flip flops are super comfy and great for a beach stroll.

Jus by Julie ofered a gift code that would allow you to get a complimentary 1 day cleanse ($50 value) and 1 probiotic coffee ($8.00) and free shipping.  I also took this opportunity to order another juice to try out – the Coconut and the Pumpkin Coconut Bisque soup.  The 1 Day Cleanse includes 6 different juices and I look forward to trying them out.  I’ll have a full review on it in the next week or so, but filled with uniquely blended juices – this cleanse sounds pretty stellar and I would have never tried it if not for the Rakuten Bonus Box.

As a blogger, I have tried many products and I’m always so excited to get my hands on new things.  But, as someone who really takes the time to learn about the brands I work with – I really like that Rakuten provides and offers something so cool for their advertisers.  I loved being able to try out these products and love the fact that I can share them with all of you.  As many of you know if you have been here for a while, I take pride in talking about things truthfully and discussing my thoughts (whether good or bad) on products mentioned here.  This awesome Bonus Box gave me the opportunity to try out a few brands I have never tried before and share them with you.  Since I have been enjoying all of the items I received in this Bonus Box, you may see future features or reviews in the coming months on each product.  Let me know if you have tried any of these before and what your thoughts are.  If you haven’t – are there any products that I got in this box that you may have your sights on?

While all the pieces CAROLEE offers are stunning and gorgeous, I decided on the Candy Colors Dramatic Necklace ($130.00) that comes ready for gifting in a gorgeous gift box.  This beautiful statement piece is the perfect gift for anyone who loves color and jewels.  It comes with multi-color acrylic stone in a gold-tone setting and has a lobster claw closure.  It has an 18-20 inch adjustable chain and great weight to it offering a chic and sophisticated look.

This classic design is one that will go with just about anything.  Use this necklace with a pair of jeans and a cute top or dress it up for a night on the town.  I love that it is filled with gorgeous colors that will be perfect for any occasion and you can use this as your statement piece to your entire outfit.  Since the necklace features several different colors it would be a great Spring or Summer necklace (not just for Valentine’s Day).

If you have your eyes set on this necklace, like with any other jewelry make sure to wipe the necklace down prior to storage and if at all possible store in an air tight bag to keep the dust away.  This will help to prolong your necklace so you can get lots of use out of it.  This gorgeous piece makes such a great gift for someone you love or a nice piece to add to your own collection.  I’m not only impressed with the quality of the craftsmanship but also with the overall appearance and look.  It’s beautiful and would make a fantastic gift.

I am aware that I’m a bit late with sharing my Rocksbox from November, but this month literally got away from me and I’m trying to catch up on everything.  Today I’m going to be sharing with you my November Rocksbox and the goodies I got inside.  I’ll be honest, when I first was contacted by Rocksbox, I didn’t think that it was for me – but after giving it a try I can honestly say that I’m enjoying this subscription.

November Rocksbox Reveal

So what is Rocksbox anyway?  It is a subscription service that includes an unlimited jewelry rental from top designer brands including Kendra Scott (one of my favorites, Gorjana and so much more.  Each box is personalized for you and curated by a team of stylists.  I decided this would be the perfect time to share my November box with you because this would make a great gift for the Holidays.  You can wear your jewelry on loan as much as you want and then swap anytime when you are ready to refresh.  Simply return your set in the original packaging with the prepaid label, leave your stylist feedback online and your next set will be on it’s way shortly.  I honestly didn’t think I would enjoy using jewelry that had been returned and worn, but I was so impressed with not only the packaging for each piece, but the care and instructions included and the quality of each item.  The pieces are gorgeous, well maintained and kept and I loved each one I received this month.

November Rocksbox Reveal

Special discounts and member rewards are given towards purchases and you keep and purchase at a discounted rate the pieces you want to keep and return those you don’t.  Rocksbox also offers Free prepaid shipping both ways which makes this subscription service a fab choice. The attention to detail in the packaging is wonderful.  My box came a tad bit crushed, but it didn’t bother me because everything was well packaged and nothing was damaged upon receipt.  There is a wonderful theme through out the packaging – down to the stickers and tissue paper and I was very impressed with what I opened even before I seen the jewelry pieces inside.  Let’s dig deeper and see what I got, shall we?

November Rocksbox Reveal

I received three gorgeous gold toned items.  I love gold and use it often so I was impressed at how nice each piece was.  The first piece I received was the Melinda Maria Cade Pave Ring (Insider’s Price $46).  This ring is gorgeous.  It is a tad bit too small for me to use like a regular ring on my ring finger but makes a great accent ring or even midi ring for any of my fingers as a great accent.  Each little crystal is set in place and this offers a beautiful statement without being too over powering.

The second piece I received was the Kendra Scott Jamie Bracelet in Irridescent Drusy (Insider’s Price $52).  If you have been following me a while, you know that I’m a huge fan of Kendra Scott jewelry and own a few pieces from the line.  I immediately fell in love with this bracelet because I’m also a huge fan of gemstones and drusy cut stones that I knew this would make a great piece in my collection.  This is the item I decided to keep.

November Rocksbox Reveal

The third and last piece I received was the Gorjana Cresent Pendant Necklace (Insider’s Price $56).  This piece was probably my least favorite out of the three I received.  It is funny though, because I had this necklace added to my wishlist but when I received it I realized that while the style is something I would wear – the length of it was just too long for me to love.  My Rocksbox stylist saw that I added this necklace to my wishlist and built the cohesive set I received around it – so it still is a great find and a gorgeous piece but I really would prefer something with a shorter chain.  I love it nonetheless, but not enough to keep it.  This necklace would make a great piece to pair with a casual outfit like jeans with a top or dressed up for your business suit or a dress.

For just $19 a month you get three pieces to wear on loan and you swap your set anytime you want.  If you fall in love with the pieces or a piece – you get a $10 monthly shine spend to apply towards your purchase.  There is zero effort and no commitment on your end.  Prepaid shipping allows you to simply put the items back in the mailbox and wait for your next set to arrive.  It’s simple and easy and while this is my first time experiencing Rocksbox, I am loving it.

November Rocksbox Reveal

Each item I received was wrapped well and each came in their own little pouch to keep them secure and protected.  Instructions also came with the box on caring for each piece so that they would last and keep looking great.  Each piece you receive, while Costume or Fashion jewelry are well made pieces from awesome designers giving you the opportunity to try new ones each time you get a box.  Like I mentioned previously, I think this would make a fabulous gift for anyone who loves jewelry.  I am beyond impressed with this subscription box.

“If loving jewelry is a crime, we plead guilty.”
