#VogueJewelry Elephant Necklace

Finishing off an outfit, whether it's a dress, pant suit or just casual t-shirt and jeans, I always like to have some sort of jewelry on.  I never go without a watch, but there are many times, even on weekends, that I want to wear a simple necklace, that's somewhat simple, yet elegant at the same time.

It doesn't have to be something flashy, but just something that finishes off the basic shirt.  That is why I love this elephant necklace by Vogue Jewelry.  It's not too big, but it's still large enough to make out.  I absolutely love the rose gold tone of this necklace and with the elephant's head adorned with many shining crystals, the two just compliments each other well.  Even the chain is rose gold tone and I love that, because with most necklaces I've owned, it's either sterling silver or gold.

The elephant's body, itself, has this opaque pearl like body that compliments and goes well with the rose gold tone.  It's lightweight and sits perfectly when worn.  The very first day I wore this necklace, I received a compliment.  I can see why!  I love it too!

You can find this necklace at Vogue Jewelry Shop or click on this link; http://goo.gl/kpa5gt. You can also check them out on Facebook.

The Fruit & Chia bars have this texture, that reminds me almost of a fig newton, but better!  They are chewy, sweet and have this Mango fruit taste that I love. You get a bit of tiny crunch, with the chia seeds and a satisfying snack, that is packed with whole grain, phosphorous, magnesium, fiber and Omega 3 fatty acids. They are available at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CF4A3BE

Jeulia Three Stone Two Tone Round Cut Created White Sapphire Wedding Set

I love jewelry!  But what I love even more, is when the jewelry is not only absolutely stunning, but made of high quality materials.  Jewelry that not only makes a statement, but also has friends asking where I got the piece and where they can purchase it.

That is why I love this ring by Jeulia.com.  This ring is so stunning and gorgeous in person and it just sparkles and shines under the lights.  This ring is a Three Stone Two Tone Round Cut Created White Sapphire Wedding Set.  It comes in two pieces; The band with the white sapphire and a smaller thin band.

The cut on the stone is immaculate!  It's flat on top and cut to perfection all around.  You can tell that Jeulia Jewelry took precise care and time in the details of not only this ring, but their other rings as well.  Such intricate details were sought when creating this ring and the best thing is, this ring is very affordable!  

Jeulia.com has hundreds, if not thousands, of rings to choose from.  They have 3 piece wedding sets, Halo ring sets, three and two stone rings as well as Jeulia Jewelry Jeulia Design rings.  If you are looking for something more unique and different, then check out Jeulia.com's Jeulia Design rings.  Here, you will find skull rings, frog rings, octopus, owl, Mermaid & elephant rings.  This wedding set came in this neat jewelry looking box, that has two slide outs; the top that held a smaller ring box and the bottom, a polishing cloth tucked inside of a business card type envelope.  So neat!

With this particular ring I received, I can tell that it is made of high quality materials, just by the feel and looks of the ring. AND...if you are worried that this, or any other ring, will turn your fingers green, I can assure you...it won't! Most rings that turn your fingers green has a copper material.  This wedding set has a 925 Sterling Silver material, which will last you a very long time and no green fingers!

Artificial Grass Doormat

Just about all of us have some sort of doormat, either inside or outside of our front and back doors.  Some of us may have those decorative doormats, and although I love all the designed doormats, I really want a doormat that also removes and stops dirt, leaves, etc., from making themselves from entering my home.

This doormat shown here, is an artificial grass doormat.  I've seen these types of doormats before, but never really invested in one (like many of you, I always went with the decorative ones!)  This doormat is available on Amazon in various sizes.  The mat has extra long artificial grass, that is made of high quality synthetic materials and also features a smart drainage technology that effectively reduces the amount of water and other liquids your shoes may carry in.

It arrived at my door in a long box, with the mat rolled and protected with a plastic wrap.  Upon unrolling the mat, I did notice, that there were a few pieces of grass that fell off, as I was trying to flatten and shaking the mat off.  This may be normal, especially when first taking it out of it's package.

All in all, I do love the textured feel of this mat.  I like the looks and can actually feel the texture of the doormat underneath my shoes, as I brush them back and forth.

You can find this artificial grass doormat HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Artificial-Grass-Doormat-24X18-Inches/dp/B01947LAPS/ie=UTF8?m=A1JD350N9SEJTW&keywords=door+mats

This doormat is available in sizes: 24" x 18", 24" x 30", 24" x 48" and blue-green 24" x 30".  Zesty Nest is the brand and is sold by Zesty Deals.  Go check them out!

Designing The Piggy Bank

While a piggy bank is a way that you can save money, it doesn't have to be boring in design. There are several ideas for personalizing a piggy bank, especially if you want to give it to a child. You can get personalized piggy banks with a name on the side or a favorite sports team. Paint the background in any color, adding swirls, flowers, squares or other fun shapes to showcase the hobbies or other special interests that you or the other person enjoys.

If you know someone who has a new baby, then make a piggy bank that features a color that matches the gender, such as pink for a girl or blue for a boy. Add the name of the child on the bank along with the date of birth, time, weight and length. This would be a good way to start a small savings account for the child. You can personalize banks for holidays, such as those that look like a pumpkin, an Easter egg or Santa Claus. There are fun designs with sweet treats, like cupcakes or donuts. You don't need to have a piggy bank in the design of a pig for it to be useful and serve the same function. The bank should be something that you can use to save money no matter what it looks like.

Design banks for each child in the home that look similar but have just the slightest difference to them, such as the color or a pattern. Line the banks on a shelf so that each child can money when chores are completed or when they receive money for birthdays and holidays. Make your bank sparkle by adding jewels to the outside or even glitter. You can paint a piggy bank to look like it's made of gold or silver. The possibilities are almost endless when it comes to what you can do with a piggy bank that you personalize. Use your imagination, stocking up on banks when they are on sale so that you can decorate them and give them as gifts for special occasions.

Olivia the Owl Developmental Toy for Baby, Infants and Children

When your baby is at his age, where he is beginning to reach and grab for a toy, this becomes the time where you begin having fun, playing with your little one. It's such a joy to watch them develop an interest in something.

I have a 5 month old grandson, and he is at the age, where when he sees a toy, he reaches for it, only to chew on it, because he is also teething.  I love seeing his little eyes light up, giggle, squeal and make these cute funny noises, when he is busy playing.

You want to have several toys on hand (I know, we all seem to have TONS of toys on hand), but a toy that will not only grab his attention with colors, but one that gets all his senses involve.  You want a toy that is not only fun, but also a developmental toy, that involves a little sound, sight and texture, to engage all his senses.

This cute little owl toy is a developmental toy, sold by midedo3, on Ebay.  This toy is Olivia the Owl Developmental Toy and has the bright colors, texture and sound.  It has ears and feet that gives off a crinkle sound, when touched and played with, an attachment that squeaks, when squeezed, a small mirror and the owl toy that rattles, when shook.  

This little owl has it all!  It also has a white clasp, at the top of the owl, making this perfect to hang from a car seat, stroller, play mat or high chair.  We all know we need to keep out little one's attention, while we are not in front of them! Hanging this toy from the car seat, or even leaving it in his car seat to play with, will keep your baby busy, while you're on that car trip.

Olivia the Owl is a generous size toy, not too small, but also, not too large for small hands.  My grand son has this thing with owls and birds.  I don't know what it is, but as soon as I presented this toy to him, he instantly squealed and grabbed for it! I tried giving him his other toy, a rattle ring, but he wouldn't take his eyes off this bird!

You can find Olivia the Owl on Ebay.  Joann is the seller, under the name, midedo3.  Not only will you find Olivia the Owl, but you will also find Morgan the Monkey, Logan the Lion and Tina the Tiger.  Midedo3 also sells tons of other things as well, such as clothing, lots of zippers, shoes and accessories.  Go check her store out for some awesome deals!
