Guy and Eva Jewelry Review


As the holiday season is fast approaching so does the prospect of many holiday dinners! And since the Holiday season is all about warmth and glitter I really love to pick it up a notch and add more glitz and glamour to my wardrobe, party or no party. I just really like to get dressed up and wear amazing jewelry even if it is to a lecture or to go grocery shopping. It just makes me feel so much better and does wonders to relieve the rainy weather.

Guy and Eva is a company dedicated to bringing glitz and glamour to every women's lives with amazing jewelry that is not only well crafted but well designed as well. And let me tell you dear readers that this is hard to find! I have found some jewelry that looks amazing but sadly falls apart after a few months...which is not good at all. But Guy and Eva's jewelry truly stands the tests of time. And I am not the only one to rave about their products, Guy and Eva has been featured on numerous prominent blogs and all the reviews have been stellar. And when you have such names as Jessica Simpson, Taylor Swift, and Paris Hilton rocking your designs, and such magazines as People, Lucky and In Touch featuring your jewelry, you know you have a good thing going on!

But more importantly everyday women are embracing style and glitz thanks to Guy and Eva, some even making a living selling their designs! What originally started as sales from boutiques garnered so much interest that they their phones were literally ringing off the hook from people interested in selling Guy and Eva very affordable pieces. So Guy and Eva developed a plan in which a stunning collection, generous hostess rewards and a more than generous compensation plan was brought together in order to offer everyone the opportunity to own and operate their very own Guy and Eva business.

I was sent three amazing pieces from both their Holiday Catalog and their 2009-2010 Catalog. It took me such a long time to go through and decide upon which pieces I would like to review since there were so many amazing options! I finally decided upon The Britney Ring, The CZ String (which were both from the 2009-2010 Catalog) and the TRILLIAN Clear Cubic Zirconia bracelet in silver (from the Holiday Catalog). I got great service from the rep Mathew and he promptly shipped my items so that they were delivered in less than a week! I was really happy since I was actually attending a friends birthday that night and I promptly put on the pieces for the night.

I really loved the packaging of Guy and Eva! Each piece came individual;y wrapped in their own super soft drawstring bag and Guy and Eva box. I love the colour scheme that they used with the purple, since purple is one of my favourite colours! The great attention to detail into such things as packaging is a reflection of how their company operates, since not one tiny detail is too small. I really loved the bottom of the boxes because they had and amazing soft velvet quilting!

A closer look at their packaging!

The pieces themselves were amazing! They each had substantial weight and you could tell that they would last for a long time! The crystals in The Britney Ring was actually smaller than I had expected but I actually found that I liked that because it made it much more sparkly and more elegant looking and looked so finely crafted as if each tiny crystal was lovingly put into place. The Trillian Bracelet literally sparkled and glimmered on my wrist and it was as if there were hundreds of rainbow lights shooting out of the bracelet. It had a substantial weight to it so it almost felt like I was wearing a $20,000 bracelet as opposed to a $200 one! My only complaint was that it was way too large for my wrist but luckily it has managed to stay on! I love the CZ Rope because I don't have a lot of gold jewelry in my collection and it is a nice change. I like how this necklace is so long , because I can wear it in so many different ways for so many different looks! I also love the the champagne coloured CZ because they add such fire and spark!

Look at how pretty the CZ Rope is! And the packaging!!

Me rocking the Britney Ring and the Trillian Bracelet!!

I would definelty suggest Guy and Eva as a stop for Santa this holiday season due to their amazing designs, great quality and amazing prices! For those of you with an eye for fashion looking for a new business opportunity inquire at Guy and Eva for more information. You can be on the cutting edge of a growing company.

You can purchase Guy and Eva jewelry from any advisor or by visiting www.guyandeva.com/shop.with your order request. They will help you complete your order.

Orange & Blossom Review


Are you a bride looking for a way to make your wedding unique? Or just love pretty things? Orange & Blossom is an amazing site packed full of pretty things that make lovely additions to not only weddings but everyday life as well. Orange & Blossom is the brainchild of Lisa Marie who has loved weddings her whole life and now has found a way to work with what she loves best!

They also have a great resources for brides to be with an online virtual consultation at a fraction of the cost. You can speak to a wedding coach on all aspects of your wedding from: working with a tight budget and how to make the most of it all the way as well as how to navigate through your big day! I think that this is such a great and innovative way in which to help plan a wedding and it's always reassuring to have a professionals input!

You may also find it interesting that Orange & Blossom has received a very prestigious award from Startupnation.com in their annual awards for the 100 best start up companies that are home based! Orange & Blossom recieved an award in the "Most Glamorous" category, and it is very much deserved! What is mind boggling is that Orange & Blossom was only started last June and it has already won such a prestigious award!

Here is a little bit more information straight from their site:
"Orange & Blossom is the first of its kind: a highly edited shop curated from artists and vendors to appeal to modern couples seeking something beautiful, different, real. We work with artists, designers, and vendors to bring you the very best in wedding embellishments, from handcrafted jewelry and accessories to exclusive thank you notes on recycled papers. Inside our boutique, browse new ceremony traditions from around the world, order custom moving cards, and learn more about our virtual wedding consulting services — another O&B innovation."

Orange & Blossom has so many great products to make your wedding unique! In their online shop they sell Paper Goods, Jewelry and Fashion, Wedding Decor, Favours, New Traditions and Gifts. You know how much I love my bling and I love the amazing jewelry offered by Orange & Blossom so much! Not only do they make great bridesmaid gifts or great focal pieces that help bring attention on your actual wedding but they translate so well to everyday wear! Lisa Marie was so generous in offering me an amazing piece to do a review on!

My package arrived quickly and I just loved the presentation! Lisa Marie put in so much effort and love into her packaging and it really showed! The piece that I reviewed came in a box with soft cotton to pad the necklace and came with the logo on the box. This box was neatly tied up in a very cute pink box. the whole package was wrapped very nicely in pink tissue paper and I had such a great time opening it up! The package also came with an adorable little pencil that had "It's going to be a beautiful day" engraved on it!

Isn't this packaging adorable?? Don't mind the shadow of my huge head! Eeek!


Me rocking the necklace....sadly this was the best shot! The other shots were shot badly and made me look like I had a triple chin! Which I don't dear readers!


I was lucky enough to be able to review the Balancing Pearls Necklace in Silver! This beautiful necklace is lovingly handcrafted in San Francisco and features a small tower of round freshwater pearls balanced in between delicate silver petals! The pendent dangles on a very fine chain that is 16 inches in length! This necklace is extremely delicate looking yet it has a great weight and strength to it! I really liked the fine details in the petals and each petal had such great detail in it which was really appreciated. It makes a big impact on everything that you wear and I love how well it goes with any outfit! I have received many compliments on it and I love to layer it with many other necklaces that I have and I love wearing it alone!

Orange & Blossom also has an amazing deal going on for the holiday season because they understand that weddings can be tres expensive so it really helps if you can save:

Trudie Davies Designs: Interview and Giveaway!

Today’s interview and giveaway comes all the way from Down Under: Australia! Trudie Davies is an Etsy seller that specializes in making classic designs with a twist! She uses Sterling Silver in all of her designs and incorporates hints of copper and brass as well as
gemstones. K nowing that she uses such quality materials in all of her designs you know that they will be sturdy and long lasting no matter how much you may bang it up! Trudie’s designs are very versatile because not only are they a great everyday jeans and t-shirt jewellery but you can add on some bling to spice it up for special occasions or a night on the town! I think my favourite pieces would have to be any of her designs involving the sweet little tweety birds! I also love her customized name pendent....very Carrie! I also love how she photographs all her jewellry! Very pretty!

All her jeweller y comes ready to give to a special loved one! And shipping is pretty cheap considering her goodies come all the way from Australia only $2.50 if you live in Australia and $3.75 for everywhere else!

Also as a special note this is the second time that Trudie is holding a giveaway here at The Giveaway Diva!! She must really love you guys!!! Since the last giveaway Trudie has started up a blog of her very own filled with great posts and even greater giveaways!!! Check her out here!

Here are the interview questions:
Name: T rudie Davies
Name of shop:www.trudiedavies.etsy.com
Location: Melbourne, Australia.

Favourite item from your shop: The 12 skinny hammered stack rings.
Tell us a l ittle bit about yourself:
I am a mom of an 18 year old girl who has just left home to go to college to do Law and Scie nce. I also have an 11year old boy who is still in primary school. The kids are great and keep my husband and I busy. I work for The Age Newspaper, our daily metro paper. I went to art school many years ago. That is where I learnt silver-smithing and jewellery making skills. I l oved that time and received distinctions for my jewellery work. I then went on to have my family and am really enjoying life now cause I can go back and do what I love doing. It real ly is so exciting to be making jewellery and running my small etsy business.

When and what made you want to open up your shop?
When I ca me across Etsy, I was real excited because for one there was an opportunity to move out items that I created. It is no point of making things if you can't off load them. I only have so many fingers, toes etc. Also the silver merchants can get real expensive! So etsy
has been a low cost real great opportunity for me to get into.

Tell us a little bit more about your creation process:
Well as well as make jewellery I am a painter. Both with jewellery and painting I seem to conjure up designs in my mind. With jewellery I then have to work out the functionality of the design. Jewellery needs to be functional with great design. Over time I have just made
jewellery pieces that take my fancy. It is now that I am starting to develop a style. This is not evid ent in the trudiedavies store as yet. It is possible that I will need to open a new shop just to showcase this new style that is emerging from me. That will all be in the future....waiting to happen. This new style is one that is based on silver work and blue and green colour stones. I love blues and greens.

Where do yo u draw inspiration for all your amazing designs?
A lot of my work draws inspiration from the geometric shapes, blues, greens, images and beauty in design. I just do what I want and what takes my fancy.

If you could be an animal what would you be and why?
An Elephant cause they are so cool.

If you could have one super power what would it be and why?
Thats a hard one! To be a Movie Star and live in Malibu! Oh well not this time around ........HaHa! Maybe just live as a 30 yr old forever and ever cause the thought of old age is starting to sca re me! Or solve all the problems of poverty, starvation, exploitation and crime in one foul swoop! Oh and not to mention climate change! I don’t know something like that!

The Giveaway:



Trudie was kind enough to offer the winner a choice between her two most popular best sellers!! Either the set of stack rings or a personalized silver band with two skinny stackers!!

The Fantasy Jewelry Box Giveaway!

Award shows are always my favourite because I love seeing what amazing dresses, bags and jewelry that the stars wear. This years Oscars were no exception. I remember being so captivated when I saw what Angelina Jolie was wearing because while it was so simple, she stood apart by her amazing jewelry! She was wearing the most amazing emerald earrings that were so breathtaking beautiful (and not mention honking huge) that you couldn't help wondering if they were real. Diamonds are always a mainstay on any red carpet, but to see something so unique and rare (large emeralds that are of that size are hard to find!) really was a refreshing change! I really love how they brought out the green of Angelina's eyes! I'm sure many were green with envy at her amazing earrings (no pun intended!)


Now while I love love love Angelina's earrings there is no way that I would be able to afford it....which is where The Fantasy Jewelry Box comes in! Now you can have the same look as your favorite actress or actor – literally. Fantasy Jewelry Box provides celebrity-inspired, high fashion women’s and men’s jewelry seen in dozens of top magazines, including US Weekly, Glamour Magazine, CosmoGirl and People Magazine. Founded in 2004, Fantasy Jewelry Box now has more than 1,400 styles to browse through online. They have an amazing selection of rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets, and you can get a complete jewelry collection without breaking the bank! After all their motto is affordable jewelry for expensive tastes!

I was so very lucky to be able to do an amazing review of these amazing earrings from the lovely and very generous people over at The Fantasy Jewelry Box! Here is my review:

I was lucky enough to have the chance to review Angelina's Gold Red Carpet Inspired Emerald Green Earrings!! These amazing earrings are currently one of The Fantasy Jewelry Box's bestsellers! They come in two different types of metal gold and silver and truly look extremely close to the actual earrings that Angelina sported on the Oscar's Red Carpet! They are made with .925 sterling silver, which is higher grade silver and the amazing stones are high quality cubic zirconias. They are1.25 inches in length and 1/2 an inch in width so they are a nice size! The round stone is 2.5 carats and the pear stone is 10.25 carats which equals to 13 carats....and I'm not talking about both earrings, I'm talking about a single! That means there are a total of 26 carats!! That's a lot of bling bling!

I really loved how the earrings were presented! They arrived at my door tucked inside a pink gift box with the logo embellished upon the top of the box in a shiny silver. The finishing touch was a stretch string bow. I really love getting jewelry in small boxes because it allows me to store jewelry to prevent them from tarnishing (yes even jewelry made with real silver or gold needs to be protected from the air or they will tarnish) and the good news is that all your purchases from The Fantasy Jewelry Box will be beautifully wrapped. I loved the weight of the earrings because they weren't too heavy which is awful on the ears! I mean I hate the look of stretched out earring holes! The colour was amazing because depending on how the light hit it, the colour would change from a dark green that it was almost black to a light shimmery green! There was a great fire and sparkle that radiated from within and I really felt that they captured the characteristics of an emerald! While it does not have the light green of Angelina's earrings I feel that the earrings are more wearable since they are a bit more understated. I really loved the earrings and got many great comments since wearing them! I even got a few comments stating how they reminded the commenter of Angelina's earrings!

I really love the jewelry offered at The Fantasy Jewelry Box! Here are more of my favs:











The Giveaway:


The Fantasy Jewelry Box is very generous in offering one very lucky winner the opportunity to make your own friends green with envy by being able to win their own pair of Angelina's earrings! Just like the one I got to review! You will get to choose between having it in either gold or silver so it depends on what type of metal you prefer! These earrings were originally $68 but they are on sale for $50!!
