From Brooklyn, With Love: Knuckle Rings Review/Giveaway

I recently partnered with a great etsy shop, FromBrooklynWLove. The owner/designer Jade Hurst started creating and selling jewelry in college as a way to help pay for her tuition. She explains how making jewelry helps her de-stress and she also loves making people happy. "Bringing you a little bit of artisian Brooklyn culture, one piece at a time."

I reviewed the Little Bow Knuckle Ring 3 Piece Set, and also the Curled Knuckle Ring. I have always been intrigued by knuckle rings. They are a good fashion statement that's making its way slowly to the US. These rings are very high quality wire, I have had wire rings in the past that are flimsy and cheaply made. I give 2 thumbs up for the quality of these pieces!

From Brooklyn, With Love has many other types of jewelry to choose from. Reasonable prices makes your shopping experience easier! Check out her Etsy shop and Facebook below! a Rafflecopter giveaway

May Dayz Giveaway Hop: The Grow Box

Welcome to The May Dayz Giveaway Event hosted by Andersons Angels and Joy of Momma Joyner. This Event features a little bit of everything!!! Each blog has gathered up a unique May Dayz Prize Package of $25 or more so be sure to visit each blog from the linky below and enter for your chance to win some really amazing prizes! This event will end on May 25th at 11:59pm EST.


I partnered with The Garden Patch and they let me review The Grow Box. I always remember growing up and helping my mom with the garden at my grandmas or growing some tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers in a pot on the back porch. It always fascinated me to watch something go from a little seed to a beautiful plant that produces food you can eat; something that YOU planted and watered!

The Garden Patch's Grow Box claims to be "The new way to garden, WITHOUT WORK." I know the reason I don't have a garden right now in my back yard, is because it is high maintenance to keep up with. I saw The Grow Box and was really excited to try something that seems to be very easy. Unfortunately, here in Ohio we have just started to get a hint of nice weather so I have not been able to plant anything in my grow box, but I cant wait to start growing some big tomatoes! Be sure that once I do, I will post pictures of my progress with The Grow Box!

Here are some reasons why you should purchase The Grow Box.
  • Sets Up in Less Than 5 Minutes
  • Works anywhere
  • Self Watering
  • No Weeding necessary 
  • 100% Natural growing
  • Reusable
If you are a first time gardener this is a great way to start out. There are 4 packages to choose from that range anywhere from 29.99-199.50. I can't wait to give my Grow Box a try!

MOTHERS DAY: JazzyWear Review/Giveaway!

JazzyWear was founded in 2008 in Athens, Ohio by Jazzma Grim who was a junior in college at the time. She attended Ohio University where she majored in Fashion Merchandising.  JazzyWear is an online shoe boutique that offers a wide variety of just about every shoe a women could want in their collection. Recently, she launched her JazzyMini Collection which are shoes for little girls that can match the adult shoes. I think it is very cute when little girls want to be just like their mommy, aunt, sister, grandma ect. What better way than to have matching shoes!!

With the welcoming of these beautiful Spring days here in Ohio, I reviewed the Hawaiian Sandal with black graphics. These trendy sandals are a great sandal you can dress up or down! I know this will be one of my "go to" sandals this Spring/Summer. I got a matching pair for my niece and they are adorable on her. I think this is a great Mothers Day gift for a Mommy with a little girl. When ordering I would recommend ordering a half size or even a whole size up. I normally wear a 9 1/2-10 and the 10's I reviewed JUST FIT. These shoes are made really well and the best thing about them is how inexpensive they are!

24/7 Frenzy: Review/Giveaway

I recently got the opportunity  to review a gorgeous dress and necklace from 24/7 Frenzy. This company has  a ton of womens clothing and jewlery to choose from. 24/7 started with one goal; they wanted to market trendy clothing at affordable prices. Speaking for myself, when I go shopping, that's exactly what I look for!

The dress I reviewed was a beautiful Strapless Cut-Out Back Party Dress. This dress can be worn for just about every occasion. It has a black and white floral design on the skirt. I love the back of this dress because of its flirty cut out!  I did feel like this dress may run a little big so consider ordering a size down. Check size chart for appropriate measurement before ordering.

The necklace and earring set I reviewed is the Rhodium Stones Medallion. When I saw this necklace, I knew I had to have it. Everything about this necklace reminded me of Spring/Summer. The butterfly and flower details of this piece are so special. It is chunky and a definite statement piece that instantly grabs peoples attention! This necklace also comes with a pair of matching post back earrings!

MOTHERS DAY: PinkEPromise:Review/Giveaway

PinkEPromise's mission is to "offer you, our customers and new friends, boutique style and handmade goods AT A DISCOUNT PRICE while at the same time raising money for The Healing Consciousness Foundation which provides spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional support to courageous women like Blair in their fight against breast cancer."

What is more special and thoughtful than a personalized necklace? I was browsing the internet and came across the amazing company PinkEPromise. I have seen numerous personalized items with the phrase "Thank you for raising the man of my dreams" on them, and knew that I wanted to give my mother-in-law something with that phrase on it. PinkEPromise personalized a beautiful necklace with those words on it. The necklace also has me and my husbands birthstones hanging on it!  I couldn't wait to give it to her for mothers day, so I gave it to her early and she LOVED it!

The necklace came in very nice packaging, and came with polishing pads for the necklace to keep it looking brand new. These necklaces are hand crafted and can be stamped with any words or phrases. You can also have them attach genuine Swarovski crystals!  I think this is a very thoughtful Mothers Day gift.  If you are looking for something that you can personalize and have originality, I think this is definitely what you have been looking for!
