Fan of #ShabbyChic #interiordesign? Check out my bathroom #decor.

Recently, I have been in the process of trying to Shabby Chic-ify my bathroom.

 Slowly but surely, it is coming together, as I am on a very small budget. I love interior design though, so I do what It takes. I am very picky with home decor, among other things, and when I found this Shabby chic distressed metal Le Bain sign on Worldmarket,  I HAD to buy it. Le Bain is french for "The Bath" It was perfect to start the new theme for my bathroom and affordable. Only about $20 with shipping! I have always been in love with Shabby Chic Designs and this sign is perfection. The picture doesn't do it justice, I assure you. I know that some of you may be thinking,"Oh, she can make that herself". I can make it myself, but I spent as much if not less than it would cost to make it myself!  That, let alone the fact that I would not search high and low and come up with a metal sign with that much beautiful detail for the frame. It is the Essence of French decor really, and whenever I walk into my bathroom, I feel like I'm transported to the olden days of France. It completely transforms the space. I can't wait to see what else I can find on there and other places to really bring this theme together. There are some things on H&M, that I am eyeing, such as this vintage inspired basket I need to get, and of course i'm stalking Shabby Chic on EbayTarget vintageRoss and more. Stay Tuned for updates!

Here are a few other purchases from World Market that I love. Vintage inspired measuring spoons and Mason jar hand wash in Orange Ginger, with vintage inspired labels and a nifty little mini tape measure for when I go on my home decor shopping sprees. Can never be without now!

Candlewarmers #Review & #Giveaway. #Win it!

Review and Giveaway hosted by: Beautiful Incentives
Sponsored by: Candlewarmers

Going flameless was one of the best things I've ever done. I avoid black soot from candle wicks and wax melts scents fill out my house with a strong throw that lasts more than one day. It's safer than candles and easier to ship! I do love the dance of a candle wick on occasion and use a candle snuff to put out the wick, but I love wax melting so much more! If you haven't tried it yet, now is the perfect time to enter for your chance to! 

Courtesy of Candlewarmers, one lucky winner will receive a melt warmer like the beautiful Illumination Green Fleur De Lis reviewed here and pictured above.

Good Luck!

#BuildaBear Workshop #Review & #Giveaway #Win it!

I'm excited to bring you another review & giveaway, courtesy of Build a Bear. You can see my first review on Twilight Princess My Little Pony here. If you are in search of the perfect gift for your little one or if you are a collector of limited edition toys, you will definitely want to check out this store. If you haven't heard of Build a Bear Workshop before, they are an online and in store stuffed animal extravaganza.  In store, you can make a day of it purchasing your bear and then putting it together right then and there in their Build A Bear Factory. There are so many outfits to choose from. It's a great fun and creative experience for kids and families to enjoy. Workshops can be found all over in your local malls. They have every character you can think of, including ones from Disney, like the one I'm showing you today. 

I received the limited edition Royal Disney Princess Build a Bear and I absolutely love her. She comes with a full beautiful Princess Ensemble, that includes so many different features. This Royal Princess is a Rapunzel themed bear and she is so incredibly cuddly soft in a powdery pink shade any little one would adore.

Her Princess ensemble includes: 
  • Gorgeous purple flowing Rapunzel dress, adorned with lace and beautiful designs throughout. $15
  • Glow in the dark removable blonde wig. $7.00
  • Golden crown that glows in the dark.
  • Already attached purple crown.
  • Sparkling purple gem shoes. $7.50
  • Cute heart panties. $3.50
  • Removable wand that also lights up! $5.00
  • Stamped feet.
The 16 inch bear itself costs $23 and the whole set mentioned above is $62 in total. 

Everything is really easy to attach to the princess, with an elastic that comes included on each piece.

The light up wand is very bright and would make for a fun play toy. It really gives the illusion of magic for a little girl.

 Look how beautiful these shoes are. 

Personally, I love her to see her with and without the wig on occasion. I think both ways are cute. 

Everything is made very high quality as you can tell by the closeups. You will not be disappointed in this beauty, nor will your little one. There are so many things to do with this limited edition Royal Disney Princess Bear. It will be hours of fun reenacting a fairy tale with her. 

Every Build a Bear comes with their certificate of authenticity and his/her little house. 

In this line of Disney Princess's, there is also a Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Belle Build a Bear! 

HURRY, there is limited availability in all these! 

And now i'm excited to offer one lucky winner a $25 Gift card to buy their own Build a Bear or outfits!

Today’s Top Jewelry Trends & The top 5 ways to make your #jewelry stand out.

How do you style your jewelry? Do you keep it simple or do you combine lots of patterns and designs? You might not know it, but it could be over kill or underkill. Find out the simple ways to make a big statement and really make your jewelry stand out. The key is coordinating, styling and balance of color.

Fashion jewelry is becoming more and more popular among women. Celebrities wear popular leather

bracelets and layered necklaces everyday with their expensive, designer clothing. The average woman

may not be able to afford the shirt worn by the celebrity; however, she probably can splurge for a pair of

earrings seen on the cover of a magazine. Jewelry designer Chan Luu says with the right jewelry, women

can feel more fashion forward and confident in her overall appearance. However, it is important to

understand the jewelry trends. The following are among the most popular.

1. Colorful Bracelets

In terms of women’s bracelets, it is becoming trendy to wear all types of color. Color is seen in different

shades of leather and plastics. It is also noticeable in bright colored beading. These details are beautiful

on a bracelet, and they allow each piece to look original. Sometimes it might seem difficult to wear color

with your clothing. After all, it might appear like the color on the jewelry clashes with the color on your

clothes. However, when you look at how the celebrities wear these bracelets, they often layer several

pieces. The jewelry is not a perfect match for the celebrity is wearing. Instead, it is a nice juxtaposition.

2. Layering


When you wear jewelry today, you should not worry about putting on too many pieces. Jewelry

designers rarely create their pieces with the idea that “less is more.” Instead, they often create

collections where multiple pieces can be worn together. For example, you can layer a simple necklace

under a statement necklace. This will create more interest around your neckline. It is also a great

trend to consider if you are wearing a low cut shirt or dress. In addition, many people like to layer their

bracelets and watches.

If you are not used to layering, it might feel overwhelming at first. To try out this trend, ask yourself

what additional pieces of jewelry can be added to enhance your overall appearance. The idea is to keep

adding until you feel complete.

3. Jewelry is the Focal Point

In the past, jewelry took a back seat to the clothing people were wearing. Today, the jewelry you wear

can become the focal point of your entire ensemble. This is partially due to the amazing jewelry options

available to consumers. In order for jewelry to take the spotlight, it is important to wear the right

amount of pieces. If you have one amazing piece of jewelry, then this might work. However, make sure

that you pair it with the right clothes.

4. Simple clothing


The best way for your jewels to stand out is to go simple with your

wardrobe. Some good clothing options include the following:

• Jeans and a t-shirt

• Black dress

• Denim shirt

Avoid patterns or loud colors.

If you want your jewelry to be center stage, these clothing options

might compete for others attention.

5. Wear your hair back.

When you are emphasizing your jewelry, it is a good idea to

pull your hair back or wear it half up. This allows your earrings and necklaces to be on full display.

Jewelry lovers anywhere can take advantage of these top trends to look fashion forward and make the

most of their pieces

Discover the Intimates subscription by #Wantable

A while back I  was lucky to sample a makeup subscription box called Wantable. You can checkout the review here. After that experience I was excited to find out that Wantable had just started a new subscription line for socks and intimates. I was seriously astounded by what was sent. Each piece was high quality and much better than expected. I am brutally honest in my reviews and not afraid to express my feeling about something, If i don't like it. If you are a man or woman looking to gift your SO something special, this is definitely the right subscription to buy them. 

Wantable provides a quiz to contour their box to your liking and they were SPOT on with me. I said what size I needed, what colors and style I preferred and got exactly what I described. They have a very precise system that makes it easy to let them know what you like. I wanted nothing too flirty, but fun and classy with simple colors and I got what I wanted. 

The box came with a little card that reads "Hey there, gorgeous" and I thought that was a cute touch. Everything was wrapped nicely with black tissue paper. Wantable has always had a lovely presentation.

It also came with a breakdown of the product descriptions and cost, which is great to show how much money you save on subscribing vs. buying the products retail in store. This subscription box costs $36 or you have the option of a one-time purchase for $40. Two of these items cost $22 so you save at least 2 items worth rather than 4. It's a great deal! 

 The first item I took out was a pair of PACT all natural, organic, sweat shop free knitted socks in a gorgeous muted turquoise color. I love these. They are so soft feeling and really comfy.  I have a not so comfortable to the touch carpet and I have to wear thick socks to bear it. These work great.

 The second item I pulled out was a pair of  Q-T Intimates panties in black, with beautiful lace detailing and a sparkly heart charm in the middle.

The third thing was the Coobie bra, my absolute favorite of the bunch. So high quality and comfortable. It was the perfect XL fit for me. It's basically a sports bra with a full back and front, now wires, but lightly padded and much more comfy. It really helps to disguise back fat. Love.

The last thing was another Q-T Intimates Item. This is a nude color tummy and thigh control shaper and it REALLY works. I'm not a big fan of thigh shapers because I have big things so when I wear these they swoosh against each other and make a sound. They would probably be ok for pants, but not a skirt or dress. The tummy control was really good though. It really pulled it in without being uncomfortable. It's slightly smaller than a normal XL would fit, but still fine. 

Wantable Intimates

Overall, I LOVED this subscription and want to give special thanks to Wantable's awesome PR for the press sample. This is the perfect gift for any woman on Valentines day and check out their other subscriptions for accessories and makeup. Plus, they have a special gift section. I really want to try the accessories box now!

    #FREE $25 #Dominos Gift Card! No, really.

    I don't know if this will work for you, but it's for a FREE $25 gift card to Dominos. It seems legit and I did it. You have to go through a ton of  questions and loops for offers, but you can say NO and skip everything. There are a few that are actually pretty good. Once you get to the end, there is a legitimate claim form (shown above) to print out and send to On Demand Research for the gift card. Once you do, it states it will be mailed out within 8-10 weeks.  Worth a shot! I got this offer from signing up to Upopin, which gives you surveys etc. 

    *Don't Forget* to take down your confirmation number when On demand pops up with the link to download the claim form.

    Good Luck to us! P.S. I don't make anything from this. Just passing on the love. We all need a little extra! This took me about 5 minutes to get through everything. It's worth it!
