I am so excited to share with you a new video on my YouTube channel today. Recently I placed an order on Amazon for two purse collections. Both of these purses are from the same seller and are a 4 piece set. Come see what was in my Amazon Haul.

Head on over to my YouTube channel and check out my newest video. This 4 Piece Vegan Handbag set is under $40 and includes a selection of colors for you to choose from. The brand is ELIMPAUL and they offer a collection of affordable but well-made handbags.

Each set includes a tote bag, clutch, cross body small purse and a card wallet. There are 16 different colors that you can select and choose from. I have Coffee Printing (brown) and Black Printing (black/grey).

Interested in picking up your own set of bags? You can visit their Amazon store here.

Who doesn’t love a bite sized chocolate treat as a gift, favor or just because?  M&M’s is a chocolate treat that claims to “melt in your mouth – not in your hand” and a childhood favorite that many love.  Recently I had the opportunity to place a personalized order from My M&M’s and I wanted to share the chocolate goodness with you as well as my customer service experience.  Don’t free like reading?  Stop by my video and I’ll chit chat and show and tell with you.

A week ago I decided that I would cash in on a gift code for My M&M’s that I had for taking part in a campaign a few months ago.  I have never ordered anything from their personalized website before, so this was not only an exciting experience for me, but I was looking forward to seeing how detailed the design on my M&M’s would be.  After a glitch in their system with my code I called their 800 number and was promptly greeted by Red & Yellow M&M on the other line while I waited for the next customer service representative.  As a fan of M&M’s and the commercials, I thought it was quite cute to listen to Red & Yellow interact with one another and patiently waited for the next representative.

After a few minutes, Richard answered the phone.  He was a kind mannered gentlemen that walked me patiently through my order (which included various steps and designs) and processed my order accordingly.  After a 40 minute time frame over the phone, Richard and I were able to complete my order and I received an email confirmation with the final design as well as my order laid out for me.  I was very impressed with the customer service I received via the telephone because my Customer Service Agent took the time to not only ensure he was getting my designs right, but the spelling, colors and every else I had planned to do via their website.  Since I added an image to customize my M&M’s – I had to email the image to him and he was able to process that portion quickly.  While we took some time going over every aspect, Richard did so kindly, patiently and his customer service was superb.  There are few places that you can call and have not only great service but also someone who is patient.  Even while I edited the image for color correction and brightness, he held on the line without any complaints.

Shipping to Hawaii was quick.  My order was sent overnight via Fedex, which allowed my M&M’s to be delivered in tact and quickly – without any melting.  Each product within the box was packaged well so that everything was not only protected but arrived safely.

I ordered a 2lb. bag of M&M’s that already had a set design, as well an Acrylic Gift Box with Plus Mrs. Brown Kit that had personalized M&M’s in it where I was able to customize and select:  Three (3) colors of my choosing (I went with Lavender, Light Pink and Platinum), Image Personalization, Custom Wording and Clip Art.  The Acrylic container holds 10 servings of your personalized M&M’s and it sits in a pretty black box which makes such a great gift.  I was happy to get Mrs. Brown too and knew I had to have her because she reminds me of me – lol.

The photo I selected on my M&M’s was one of my husband and I.  The detail on the image is great and everything looks absolutely perfect.  Not to mention, they taste delicious too… just as I come to expect from one of my favorite candies.  The spelling for everything I provided was not only accurate, but the font is legible and everything looked great.  Not one M&M arrived damaged and it was a sweet treat to have for my husband and I.

I’m not only impressed with the service I received from My M&M’s but also the quality of my treats.  The 2lb bag of pink M&M’s came with a little white scoop which made enjoying our treat easy and the quality of each item was well made and of quality.

A few years ago a friend of mine worked with me to design some M&M’s for her wedding.  It was simplistic and you could only add initials at that time so I was so happy to see the different types of customizing you can do to the M&M’s now and the fact that this could all be done online as well.  I’m glad there is an option available for those looking for a fun and thoughtful gift or something “sweet” to give out as favors at your next event.  Regardless of the reason, I think My M&M’s is a great way to go and I would return to buy and order again.

Did you know that you could customize M&M’s this way?  If so, have you tried for yourself or are your planning to?  Be sure to check out my video where I walk you through each product and discuss my thoughts with you as well.

When it comes to office and stationary products, I just can’t resist and often times I find myself combing through the office supply sections of my local stores just as much as I’m going through the beauty sections.  Because of this, I always love to find great deals on office and business like products and even more so, I love when I can personalize them.  Recently I placed an order on Minted.com (I featured this company on my site last week, you can read about that here) and received my personalized goodies via Fedex last week Friday.  I loved all the products that I couldn’t wait to share them with all of you.

Minted.com Haul

Minted.com offers a wide range of artwork and products you can personalize.  Since I was on the hunt for new blogger cards, I decided that I would test the quality of Minted and see what they had to offer.  Customizing my business cards were simple and effortless and when I received the products in the mail, I was beyond impressed with the quality.  Having been a long time Moo customer, I was impressed at how thick the paperstock was and loved the pearlized finish on the cards.  They are well made and I love the box they come in.

Minted business cardsShauna Stripe Business Cards come in a set of 25 for $36.00.  These cards have a pearlescent finish and look almost metallic.  While I uploaded my own photos to create the card, it was easy to customize and you could choose from different fonts available as well as sizing and layouts.

These cards can be customized both on the front and back so it allows you to include all the necessary information you would want on a business card.  The second set of business cards are called Pretty Play Date Cards… perfect for mommies.  These are square cards (super cute) that retails for $30 and includes 20 cards.  Customizing this card was simple as well and definitely fun to do.

I also ordered two gold washi tape rolls, which I thought would be great to not only add to my washi collection, but I love gold and haven’t found anything like this in my local stores.  One Washi Tape is just plain gold and the other is gold stripes.  Both are quality washi and I’m excited to use them in my planner.  Each roll of Washi was $4.00 and comes with a lot on the roll.

I also ordered a personalized notebook.  The Glitter Heart Notebook allows you to write your name and select a font that you will like.  There are also a few color choices you can go with for the stripes, so I choose Lavender / Lilac – of course! The notebook is a basic lined book that will be a great gift for anyone in school or office.

I am a huge fan of sites and products that can be personalized to fit my taste and Minted is no exception.  The quality is great – offering you a plethora of products that you can give as gifts or buy for yourself.  Besides the goodies I just hauled, you can also order artwork and various items as mentioned in my previous post.

So tell me, have you heard of Minted before?  If not, what sites are you shopping to make personalized items for yourself and loved ones?  Share with me and tell me below in the comments if you have any that I can check it out.
