Expressions Bracelets Review and Giveaway

Expressions is a bracelet design company that specializes in creating the trendiest, high quality bracelets on the market today. I also do custom orders so that my customers and I can create a one of a kind, uniquely fashionable piece. 

I received 2 pieces from Expressions Bracelets at no charge in exchange for an honest review.

My Review

I love bracelets. I was so excited to get these bracelets from Expressions Bracelets to review. Jewelry is a girls best friend. I can't wear earrings, and necklaces still bother me some because my kids are still young and they get hung up in little hands. Bracelets are the perfect accessory. I received the beaded bracelet, and the metal cuff pictured above. 

I love the turquoise color of the beaded bracelet and the way the gold cross contrasts with the blue color of the beads. The bracelet fits nicely, and is eye catching. It goes with almost anything I wear.

The cuff bracelet is also perfect. The saying "Just Breathe" is one of my mantras that I repeat probably 20 times a day at my rather stressful full time job. The cuff fits nicely on my arm, and goes with anything from pajama pants and a t-shirt to a nice dress for a night out.

I am impressed with the designs and quality of these bracelets and will ordering more from Expressions Bracelets!

Personalized Engraved Cutting Board

A personalized cutting board is a wonderful way to celebrate an anniversary, wedding, housewarming and many more occasions in your life. In addition this boards make memorable gifts, allowing for that personal touch to show appreciation to business partners or prospective clients.

All boards are carved from the highest grade of natural wood, quadruple sanded, immersed in mineral oil and finished with homemade board butter for ultimate durability, luster and shine. Personalization is achieved with a state of the art laser engraver. Straga Products has created more than fifty unique templates to commemorate the special occasions in a person's life. Each and every board comes with cutting board butter and in beautiful gift wrapping at your choice.

I received two beautiful engraved cutting boards at no cost in exchange for an honest review.

Our Review

These cutting boards are beautiful. We love to cook and I love to have nice items in my kitchen. Plain jane plastic or wood cutting boards don't really add anything to kitchen decor. I was offered the chance to review these cutting boards from Straga. I had one made for me and my husbands wedding date and I also had one made for my parents, whose anniversary is coming up in July. The one I chose for us (Zuna) is a Purpleheart wood. The one for my parents (Williams) is Walnut. The engraving is done by laser. I was able to select the design I wanted, they have so many to choose from! You can also choose the font you want and the size of the cutting board. You can have it gift wrapped, and have a note card included if you want to send one as a gift.

The boards come with body butter to treat them before you use them, and to keep them in good shape as you use and clean them. The non engraved side is the side you use to cut on while you can display the engraved side when you're not using it.

Customized Care Makes a Difference in Drug or Alcohol Recovery

Choosing to embark on the path of sober living and ceasing the use of drugs or alcohol is a major decision. Addiction is a very serious illness that affects everyone in the life of the patient. With that in mind, locating an Ohio alcohol detox facility that offers quality care, comfortable surroundings, and the support of loved ones is often critical to the successful completion of any program. Addiction treatment is decision that involves taking a life back and the encouragement and support of a great facility increases the chances of success.

Quality Care

Medical detox is necessary to help the patient recover from the severe physical and psychological effects of addiction. Once that portion of treatment is completed, moving to an aftercare facility where clean and sober living can be provided as a shelter from the pressures of the world is usually a beneficial step. Facilities that have extensive experience in the area of addiction recovery are available all over Ohio, which means a close and effective treatment center is within reach. These facilities specialize in different aspects of treatment with experienced and licensed staff, but some locations offer total services to get patients back on track and help them reclaim their lives.

Comfortable Surroundings

Treatment facilities excel in providing comfortable surroundings staffed by professionals, which is why they are the preferred course of addiction recovery services. The stress free environment staffed with caring individuals is one factor that helps the healing process. By focusing on the personal needs of each patient, these facilities are able to provide a customized treatment plan to enhance success. The peaceful and relaxing aftercare facilities even offer special activities and programs to help the patients find their footings in life and become productive members of society.

Support of Loved Ones

Support from loved ones that have been affected by the addiction is a key element in the recovery process. When facilities allow frequent visitors to show support, everyone wins. The emotional roller coaster that the journey provides relies on the help of family and friends. Facilities understand this and attempt to incorporate as much support structure as possible into the program. Since the treatment is different for everyone, gaining access to a customized program is essential to success.
In the end, facilities that offer licensed practical quality care, comfortable surroundings, and the support of loved ones offer the best chance at reclaiming a life from addiction. Medical treatment is usually the first step in a long road, but the rewards at the end include a sober life with all the treats and enjoyment that everybody else experiences. Taking the first step is the hardest part, because once the journey has begun it can have a positive outcome.

My Review

I have just recently celebrated a birthday, and I'm a little sad to say I'm at the age now where I am starting to notice some small wrinkles and that my skin is not as bright and smooth as it used to be. I have very dry and sensitive skin, so finding good products that don't irritate and make my skin worse can be difficult. These products have been easy to use and have made my skin feel and look great. I use the Face Wash and the Face Serum every couple days. The Lip Balm is my favorite lip balm I've used in a while. The heat and humidity down here in Florida can be treacherous, and my lips get very dry and cracked. The lip balm is soothing and keeps my lips hydrated and keeps them from cracking. If you have sensitive skin and need some good care products, Lindi Skin is where you need to look first!

I received these Avery Shipping LabelsShipping Label w/ Paper ReceiptWeather Proof Mailing Label and the Easy Peel Address Label at no cost in exchange for an honest review.

My Review

We live 1000 miles away from most of our family. My kids and my mom and dad like to send care packages back and forth to each other. These labels have really come in handy lately. I especially like the Weather Proof labels. My parents live up in Pennsylvania and they are still experiencing some cold and wet weather. With these labels I know that grandma will get the presents the boys send her. I also sent some up to her so when she sends items down here, they are sure to make it to my boys.

The white and brown craft labels work great for me for when I need to send small prizes and items out for my blog winners, or to send items to other bloggers.

Having these labels works out really well for me, and it is more professional looking than just writing on the envelopes or boxes.

Maker of leather key chains and accessories.

My Review

I don't carry many keys, but I love cute key chains. I received this leather Pink Jiraffe key chain from Sir Keys and love it. It's cute, and eye catching. The stitching is strong so there will be no threads coming off of this and it will not fall apart easily. It's unique shape and leather material make it easy to find in my purse just by feel.

My Review

I loved this show "back in the day". I am ecstatic that I get to share this show with my kids now. This was one of my favorites that I would watch religiously. I loved the setting, the characters and the story lines, Now I get to share this great show with my kids, and they are loving it just as much as I did, and still do. I don't have to worry about what they may be exposed to when watching a Nickelodeon classic like this. There are lessons to be learned along with the laughs to be had.

 Blemishes Seem to Just Fade Away
 Skin Feels Clean and Conditioned

My Review

I have realized lately that I need to start taking better care of my skin. I'm not so young anymore, and my skin is starting to show my age. I have tried a lot of different products with varying results. I really like the way this Botanical Splash makes my skin feel and look. My skin is softer, and looks younger. My skin feels moisturized and brighter when I use this. I have noticed some of my small wrinkles around my eyes are less noticeable also. The Botanical Splash has a light scent and doesn't feel heavy or sticky on my skin. I am very happy with the results I've seen with this product!
