sun touch plus

I am very interested these days by Sun Lamps. I mean, it’s winter so the sun is hard to find! The NatureBright company has created the SunTouch Plus Light & Ion Therapy lamp to help you with your winter blues, seasonal affective disorder, jet lag or poor concentration. Basically, I don’t see how this unit couldn’t help you!

The Official Best of Fest ‘Chick Flicks’ Review & Giveaway

Saturday, December 5th, 2009

chick flicks

The snazzy Official Best of Fest gift sets aim to show you the best films you’ve never seen, or even heard about. I received a copy of the Chick Flicks gift set to review, but I’ve naturally had to take a couple days to watch enough of it to talk about.

These are substantial films that really make you feel.

Two disc’s are included. The first one has short films, and the second disc has two feature films. I was surprised by the short films, because while I thought they might all be feel-good, happy, mushy things – they were actually mostly dramas that kind of…well, there was a need for Kleenex! They’re ‘Chick Flicks’ in the sense that I can’t think of many guys who would appreciate watching these the way a woman could, but there’s nothing slap-happy involved here. These are substantial films that really make you feel.

I especially enjoyed the films The Republic of Love, Gafa, Charlotte’s Red an ... Read More

chandelier decals

Graphique is an online shop that publishes all sorts of goodies from stationery to wall decals. Because they have production centers in North America, Asia and Europe they are able to closely follow design trends to create the most fashionable products. Some people don’t realize how important a font can be (until it’s time to pick Wedding invitations – then they worry about font selection for a month). I love Graphique because they embrace style the way I want to embrace style in my everyday life.

red clutch on sale

With dedication and a passionate spirit, Kelli D. Turner has turned her dream into reality with Kelli Diane Designs. She creates handbags for us based on her extensive history of loving and often buying every sort of purse she could afford (which is not always exactly easy when you’re in college and living on Ramen Noodles – I know this). But like any woman knows, as you get older your craving for quality increases. Turner realized that she wanted to spend her time doing something she had a genuine passion for doing. Enter, her love affair with bags! Merging fashionable vision with care, Turner makes handbags to covet. (Especially like the charmingly classic Uptown Hobo in brown, seen above.)

Merging fashionable vision with care, Turner makes handbags to covet.

The She’s Smart Appeal: The earphones for my iPod tend to get all tangled, and since I love ORDER – it really bugs me. I try to keep them wound nicely when they’re not in use, but my efforts never really pay off.
