What’s in your Easter basket?

Check out this beautiful jelly watch from Keeks and Brie that was in The Little Write Gal’s Easter basket today. She loved it!  I am telling you it is so pretty that I wish I had one.  Every year I have so much fun deciding what to put in her basket. One of the things she also gets each year is a bathing suit.  And of course let’s not forget the Easter candy.  We are not a fan of Peeps at our house but The Little Write Gal and I really love some Starburst jelly beans.  So of course those had to be in there.

I hope everyone has a Happy Easter.  Please be sure and leave me a comment and let me know what was in your Easter basket.

Twisted Silver Review and Giveaway (CLOSED)

twistedsilver2Recently I introduced my readers to the fabulous and funky jewelry from Twisted Silver.  I was thrilled to be able to review two of their bracelets, the Aurora and the XO.  The Aurora bracelet is individually fire treated with fascinating aurora borealis color.  I was immediately drawn to the weight of this piece and how substantial it feels.  I really love chunky jewelry and if you do too you will not be disappointed because this is a definite statement piece.  It is 8″ in length and is adjustable to fit a smaller wrist. I haven’t even gotten to wear this one yet because as soon as my daughter saw it she put it on her wrist and has been wearing it ever since. 

twistedsilver3The XO brass bracelet is made from gorgeous brass and is adjustable to fit a 7″ wrist.  This description says it all from the Twisted Silver Web site: The asymmetrical yet balanced design artistically draws double-takes with an edgy, urban feel. We’re talkin city chic. This is one of those designs that can rock denim as it can silk.  I could not have said it better myself.  What drew me to this piece is the XO design which will look great with any outfit.  It has an unusual quality about it which I love.

I am happy to say that the very generous designers at Twisted Silver are giving away a bracelet to one lucky Write Gal reader.  The winner will be able to choose either the XO bracelet or the Aurora — whichever you prefer!  Let me tell you it is a tough decision because both are equally gorgeous.  Here’s how to enter:

Fabulous Jewelry – Check out Hip Fusion Designs!

writing&shoppingadvicehipfusionRecently I had a chance to review two gorgeous necklaces from Hip Fusion Designs, a company that specializes in creating handcrafted jewelry incorporating fused metal clay and dichroic glass elements.  Each piece is unique and is literally a work of art.  I was impressed with the quality of the pieces themselves. I own a ton of jewelry and I cannot tell you how many necklaces I have ordered only to be disappointed when they arrive in the mail due to lackluster quality.  The necklaces I reviewed from Hip Fusion Designs are made with only the finest quality materials which are evident right down to the clasp that holds the piece in place around your neck.  All of their jewelry comes with a Lifetime Guarantee on both materials and craftsmanship.

writing&shoppingadviceneck2I am in love with the Pop Silver Daisy necklace which features three clear crystal lucite drops. Because of the clear crystals, this necklace can go with anything. The necklace also has a gold-plated mini flower which is enhanced by a simple silver chain. I adore this necklace because it is two-tone, making it a very versatile piece in your jewelry wardrobe. I also like to click the lucite drops when I am stressed. I wore the necklace a lot during exam week at school! You can see a picture of me wearing the Daisy necklace on my “About The Write Gal” page. It is one of my favorites!

writing&shoppingadviceneck1An equally stunning necklace is The Bling Glass Dangle.  I like this one because it comes in so many varieties you can customize it to make it the perfect necklace for you.  It comes in your choice of 12 bead colors and three colors of leather cords.  The one pictured is made with warm deep brown glass and brown leather cord. My necklace is silver black glass with a black cord.  This necklace has extra sparkle with the addition of smaller beads which are a perfect complement to the larger dangle.  You can wear this necklace casually with a t -shirt or with your favorite cocktail dress for a dressier look.

If you wear jewelry from Hip Fusion Designs I guarantee you will be the best dressed woman in the room.  Their wide selection of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings make the perfect gift for yourself or a friend. 

Happy Shopping! 

Abella Galleries Necklace Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)


I am excited to be participating in MomDot’s Birthday Bash – 31 Bloggers in 31 days.  Each day in May, MomDot is bringing you a different giveaway in celebration of my friend Trisha’s 31st birthday.  Happy Birthday Trisha!  My birthday is also in May (the 24th) and I have to say I am enjoying an early birthday present, a gorgeous turquoise beaded necklace from Abella Galleries, my fabulous sponsor for this event. Abella Galleries creates vibrant turquoise and white stone beaded jewelry designs.

abellanecklace1My necklace is the Blue Meadow Oval and let me say that it is absolutely gorgeous!  The green turquoise beads are exquisite and give just the right amount of color to whatever outfit you are wearing.  I have the 33 inch version of this necklace which I love because of the versatility.  You can either wear it long or double it as shown in this photo.  I also like the size of the beads. They are the perfect size and make this piece wearable for any occasion.

abellanecklace2Abella Galleries is owned by Creative Director and Jewelry Designer, Elizabeth Rowland who became inspired while exploring Beijing.  During her travels, she happened to discover a small jewelry booth covered from floor to ceiling with gorgeous, vibrantly colored blue turquoise bead necklaces.
