I have been looking for some great jewelry when I stumbled upon Marie Osmond Jewelry. I didn’t know she is a talented jewelry designer. Add that job description in her belt together with her being a singer, actress and doll designer. lthough she was never part of her family’s singing group, she gained success as a solo country music artist in the 1970s and 1980s. Her best known song is a cover of the country pop ballad “Paper Roses.” Her doll collection is called the Marie Osmond Collector Dolls.
While I was looking for new Chamilia beads and Kameleon compact jewelry boxes to add to my collection, I stumbled upon her gorgeous jewelry collection. She offers bracelets, earrings, necklace and earring sets, chokers, pins, rings and necklaces.
Here are a few that have caught my eye:
Alloy & Turquoise Necklace/Earring Set
Alloy Rose Design Necklace & Earring Set
Her pins are also great pieces of art and can be a great accent to any outfit, be it for a formal or casual occassion. She has two pin pieces that are available for a limited time only. You might want to consider getting them!
Heart Charm Pin
Flower Charm Pin
Whether you are buying men’s sunglasses or women’s sunglasses, you need to have a certain criteria when choosing what to buy. Things such as the style, color and shape of the frame, the degree of sun protection and whether or not they offer UV protection too are some points you should think about before buying.
When you buy specific sunglasses for a sport, like golf sunglasses for example, the criteria points for buying one lengthens.
1. Frame. They need to fit well and be comfortable. Many golfers prefer those whose frames are made of lightweight materials, such as polyamide. The object is to feel that they are not there.
2. Lens. It should be polarized because they cut down the glare from sunlight that bounces off some surfaces.
3. Color of the Lens. Bright sunny days need a darker colored lense, maybe even mirrored or polarized. Darker cloudy days can still be glary and hard on the eyes, a light grey or an amber lense would be perfect. Find a pair with interchangable lenses.It will give you the ability to change the lenses as you need.
4. Excellent Ultraviolet Protection. Some people mistakenly think that there is little or no risk of ultraviolet radiation on overcast days, but that isn’t so. UVA and UVB rays are just as dangerous on a cloudy day as they are on a sunny one. The higher the nanometer rating, the better.
What do you give to a high-powered career executive who happens to be a lady? Clearly, the usual wine, tobacco and neckties gifts are out of the question. And while you can always give something feminine like roses, chocolates, make-up and perfume, individual tastes vary. A gift that your lady boss can actually use and appreciate is a one cup coffee maker.
Think about it, single serve coffee makers probably fit her lifestyle perfectly. She might be a woman on the go all the time and like most women, thrive on caffeine to be able to work all day. And since single cup coffee makers come in different styles, you can find a model and brand that would be compatible to her. Some of these single cup coffee makers are designed for the person who is on the go. The coffee brews right into a travel mug so all that you have to do is pop on the lid and ready to go out the door. You don’t even have to take the time to transfer the coffee from the pot to the travel mug, it is all done in one step.
And these single serve coffee makers are not just for coffee. You can make cappuccino, hot chocolate or even tea!
It is just a few days before graduation celebrations. The gift giving in these or in any other events may be the focal point in the merriment. We put in so much in packaging so that the receiver of our gift will be doubly happy even before he or she sees the present inside. If you can’t make it to the event, postcard printing is an option. I’m sure the schools and malls are especially stacked with label printing materials and must have ensured that they have plenty of supply. I personally opt putting gifts in gift bags.
Also, it is much easier and quicker to just place your gift inside the gift bag and to tediously cut and tape fancy paper to cover your gift. But of course, a gift boxed and wrapped in custom printing offers a more classic design. Being so worldly just ruins the true spirit of graduation. It is never wrong to spice up a gift and it might even help if the gift isn’t so fancy but we all should be wary that graduation day is a time for family and a congratulatory event for the graduate and not just for expectation of the things one will receive.
Summer is near! Most of my friend have already made plans for their summer getaway and a few even had their first summer travel vacation with their respective families. It’s now time for flip flops, waterproof cameras and swimsuits. I know most of us would probably hate ourselves for overindulging during Christmas season but we still have around a couple of weeks to starve ourselves to be able to fit into these, if we had the guts to even show our tummies!
Here is the latest summer collection from GAP. Perfect for small-breasted women like me. Unfortunately, not for my tummy.
I don’t know how I ended up over at the BagSnob’s blog when I was just looking for slipcovers for our couch. You can call it a Freudian slip? But I really love this one. Even if it’s a MAN bag
Dubbed the “Barda 35,” Hermès’ latest men’s creation is made from Sikkim calfskin (translation: super supple and ultra lightweight), is simple, elegant and will coordinate nicely with everything in .. wardrobe
I have successfully (I think) gotten rid of my bagaholic tendencies last month. I am now using a messenger bag from Forever21 and have stored what is left of my more expensive bags in their bag covers. I am into messenger bags lately, I don’t know why. So that’s why I fell in like with his bag.
You would need to know the different types coffee brewers before you can decide which one would suit your needs and lifestyle. For example, you might need a different coffee maker for the home and work office.
Here are some of types of coffee makers to help you decide the best coffee maker for you:
Standard Drip Coffee Makers
Regular drip coffee makers are available in 4 to 12 cup capacities, in many styles and models and at various prices. Though some models can be pricey, drip makers are generally the most economical, when compared to specialty coffee machines. If you’re looking for a practical coffee maker, this would be it.
Percolator Coffee Makers
These were considered the standard coffee brewers years ago. Boiling water is repeatedly filtered through the coffee grounds.
Pod or Single Cup Coffee Makers
The benefits of a single-serve coffee maker are convenience, ease and effortless brewing, not to mention the taste experience as pods, capsules and k-cups are available in various flavor choices
French Coffee Press
Made for stove-top use, a French Press is designed to push the coffee grounds into the boiling water for richer, darker coffee.
Espresso and Coffee Specialty Machines
With commercial coffee machine functions and features, these brewers allow you make specialty coffees at home, for a lot less than the coffee shop beverages.
They say that dogs are man’s best friends. With this saying, it is not surprising that many dog owners treat their dogs like a part of the family. They bring their dogs almost everywhere, their dogs are well-fed, and they go shopping for pet clothes for their dogs.
Another favorite purchase of many dog owners are dog toys. Toys keep their dogs entertained and happy. Whether you own a large dog or a small dog, a toy will surely make your dog excited. However, care should also be observed in buying dog toys.
Below are two of the best dogs toys to look for when shopping.
• Get toys that squeak. Dogs have an acute sense of hearing. They could hear really well and squeak toys could really pique their interest. Make sure that the squeak toy is safe and intact. Check that the squeaker is secure inside the toy to prevent your dog from choking on it.
• Get toys for fetching. Most dogs love to play fetch. A Frisbee, balls, and other fetch toys will have your dog running towards the toy and back to you. Why let your dog have all the fun? Enjoy playing with your dog by throwing his toy and letting him fetch it.
