Clutch That! Review


As you well know today is Christmas!!! Yay! And with Christmas time comes parties....tons and tons of parties! Parties were you not only have to stress over what to bring but more importantly what to wear! And nothing is more important than accessories....it either makes or breaks an outfit. This year I can do no wrong because I'll be carrying the latest arm candy! I guess my boyfriend would be considered arm candy, but I think that my beautiful new clutch from Clutch That! fits the description better!!!

Clutch That! is the amazing etsy shop of Rosemary who specializes in clutches! If you are looking to add the wow factor to an outfit, a clutch from Clutch That! is perfect! The beauty of these clutches is that they can be worn with many outfits and that they make the easy transition from a daytime clutch to a clutch that would look perfect at a black tie event or even a wedding! In fact Rosemary specializes in clutches that can be customized for the whole wedding party! If you are a bride looking for an item that your bridesmaids will love, Clutch That! has an amazing array of sets for Bridesmaids! And if you buy more than three, Rosemary offers great discounts so that your bridesmaids will get clutches that they will love and you can get to use the money you saved on getting yourself something special!

All of the clutches in Clutch That! are painstakingly handcrafted with love by Rosemary. No detail is too small and it is definetly a quality piece! Rosemary sources and uses only the highest quality of silks, fabrics and materials in each one. And each clutch is custom made to meet your specifications. If you need to modify a design Rosemary will be more than happy to work with you in order to ensure that the clutch you receive will meet your needs! She also offers a monograming service which makes an already unique clutch even more so! I really love her clutches because they offer such amazing embelishments that you don't really see on other clutches. From using real peacock feathers to beaded embroidery, I feel as those little extras really adds a great punch! Not to mention her love of using bright and vibrant colours in her designs!

I was beyond excited that I had the chance to review one of Rosemary's clutches, I mean look at them they are so gorgeous!!!! It was such a difficult decision because I loved every single design! I was torn over so many designs but in the end I decided to go with The Peacock Silk Clutch Purse Large Size Peacock Splendor! I know that I need lots of room in order to store my stuff so I thought that this would be the perfect size. And Rosemary was extremely helpful in suggesting that a certain dimension looked better, and I decided to go with her advice because she is the designer after all.

The clutch I got to review...don't worry it looks like there is a crease in the material but it was just the way in which the flash hit it!

Shipping did not take as long as I expected because things always takes a while to ship to Canada! When I opened the box I was so delighted at the presentation! The clutch was carefully wrapped and nestled in tissue paper and was also stuffed with tissue paper so that it would maintain it's shape. The clutch looks so much more beautifull in real life and it has such an amazing sheen and shine to it! It also looks so professional because her seams line up perfectly with one another and the way that the frame is attatched to the fabric is flawless! I also like how she reinforces her seams because it makes the clutch as strong as it is beautiful.

Close up of the fabric and the peacock feather embroidery

The clutch is made of an amazing silk brocade and is embroidered with amazing details! I love how the teal background perfectly offsets the bright metallics of the peacock feathers. The feathers are amazing because depending on how the light hits it, the feathers can change from gold to silver in appearance! The brocade is nice and thick and you can tell that it is of very nice quality and it seems as though it is snagproof, which is always a big worry of mine with silk!
A closer look at the inside of the clutch

The inside of the clutch is lined with an amazing cream satin and a tag rests on the bottom so that you know that it is a genuine Clutch That! Original Design. Rosemary has also made this clutch super durable by layering a heavy stablilizer and hypo-allegenic batting between the silk brocade and the satin which helps to give the clutch structure so that it won't sag or be slouchy and keep its shape and it will be soft when you hold it. My clutch has a shiny silver frame but it can also be made in an antique brass frame as well!

Me rocking my new clutch! (Excuse the nails!!)

Thankfully the clutch arrived when it did because I had a friends birthday party that night, and it was the perfect venue to showcase my amazing clutch! All of my friends loved it and loved how soft it was and was surprised that it was able to fit my stuff! I managed to put quite a bit in the clutch including: two lip glosses, an eyeliner pot, my wallet, my cell phone and my keys! There was still some room left after so this clutch is definitely roomy! I totatally love this clutch so much that I have taken it out with me to all of the parties and events that I have attended!

Other clutches I'm in love with:



I love love LOVE my new clutch and I would definetly suggest heading on over to Clutch That! to drool over some amazing clutches and pick up a few for yourself and some lucky recipients! And if you love my clutch fear not, because Rosemary is not only super sweet to work with but super generous because she is going to offer a clutch from Clutch That! to one very lucky The Giveaway Diva reader! Look out for the giveaway sometime next week!

Disclosure: I recieved a clutch courtesy of Rosemary and Clutch That! in order to conduct a review. I was not given monetary compensation in order to do the review and all thoughts and opinions are that of my own.

AffordableScarves.com Review


I love scarves! I just can't get enough of them! Sure when I was little I would wear it during the winter, but as I have grown older I have realized the beauty in a scarf. It's not just a scarf but a fashion statement that can be worn year round. It helps that it keeps you warm because when it is freezing cold outside if your neck isn't covered then the pesky wind somehow manages to worm its way down the neck opening of your coat and just clutches your body with it's cold fingers! Brrr I get cold just thinking about it.

My scarf addiction can add up, because some scarves can be pretty expensive! So when I chanced upon AffordableScarves.com I had found the answers to my prayers. They have so many great selection of scarves in all types of colour, patterns and materials! If you want to explore your wild side, they have animal print scarves, and if you are a more basic type of girl they have lovely basic scarves. AffordableScarves.com also has scarves for the guys because we love guys and we don't want to leave them out!

I love how the site is organized because it makes it super duper easy to navigate and to find the perfect scarf to meet your needs! They organize their scarves by seasons, colour, material, shape, size and trend! But I think the best part about their shop is the amazing prices!!!! No scarf in AffordableScarves.com is over $20!!!!! That's right! Even their regular priced scarves are not higher than $20! AffordableScarves.com is having a sale right now, even on their new arrivals and that means that no scarf is over $16! Great prices!

The lovely scarf I reviewed!

I got to review an amazing scarf for my very own and I chose to review a zebra print cashmere scarf! That's right cashmere! Unfortunately the scarf I got to review is no longer on the site because they sold out! Guess I have great taste! =)I've always loved animal print, but sometimes too much of an animal print can be downright tacky! Not to say that animal print is tacky, but just if you wear too much of it! I think that a scarf is a great way to incorporate animal print into your wardrobe if you are a more conservative type of person. I have been lusting over an animal print scarf for so long, but never got around to getting one so I was super happy that I got to do my review on it!

Close up detail of the scarf and the fringe

When I received the scarf I put it on right away! I was that excited! It is super soft and I really love the colour of it! While it is a zebra print, it's not traditional in the sense that it's black and white! Instead its a light chocolate colour with the stripes being a dark chocolate colour! I really love the length of it, because it's not too long that it will drag on the ground but long enough to be able to loop around my neck. It's also super warm which is great since I do have to brave the cold cold Canadian winter. I also can't get over just how soft it is! I have worn it a lot since I have got it, everyday in fact and I have got many compliments on how cute it is!
Rocking my new scarf!

So if you are looking for a scarf to keep you cozy and warm this winter, or even a scarf to wear year round head on over to AffordableScarves.com! And look out for a giveaway courtesy of AffordableScarves.com soon!

Please Note: I was not given monetary compensation in order to do the review and I was only sent the scarf for review purposes. All views expressed within this review post are my own.

Hugs and kisses to you all!!!

Frieda Sophie Giveaway!!


And I just keep rolling them out! As many of you can see I have tons of giveaway goodness going on!! Gaggles and gaggles of them! And I say why stop when you can have many more!?

Now you ladies might want to sit down because you will positively swoon when you get a glimpse of Frieda Sophie's exquisite line of hand crafted jewelry! And then you will have to sit back down when you get a load of her amazing prices! With the most expensive item in her shop being only $50 and almost everything else for under $30, you're going to thank me because you will be able to buy all your presents in one place (well for the women in your life) without breaking the bank! And I love how she uses such colour and how some colours that you would never think of putting together (hello orange and blue of the Meharet orange carnelian aqua gold hoop earrings) just looks so right!

Here is an interview with the loevley and very talented designer of Frieda Sophie, Sandra:

Name: Sandra Ische
Name of shop: Friedasophie
Location: San Francisco, CA
Favorite item from your shop: Emerald green onyx amethyst gold cluster hoop earrings

Tell us a little bit about yourself:
Hi, i am Friedasophie. I have loved to create art since i was a child. Whenever I'm free, I like to create and explore new ideas. I also sew, which i have inherited from my grandmother who was a fashion designer and my grand-grandmother who was a hat designer. My family and friends always encourage me to keep doing the things I love. That's the reason why I opened my wholesale shop on Etsy. I love creating custom orders for my clients as well as bridsmaids custom color matched pieces.

What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment? To become a full time jewelry designer in only 9 months time.

When and what made you want to open up your shop? I wanted to offer pretty natural themed gemstone jewelry at affordable prices, since every woman should be able to afford and own at least 1 piece of beautiful jewelry that compliments her style.

Tell us a little bit more about your creation process: I got to the forest, collect flowers and leaves, press them, draw them and then create gold plate pieces from them
to pair with gemstones.

Where do you draw inspiration for all your amazing designs? I love victorian vintage jewelry and I try to make a modern piece with those influences paired with nature and unusual colors.
If you could be an animal what would you be and why? A penguin, they are cute, lovely and always help each other out.

If you could have one super power what would it be and why? I would make everybody happy.

Orient Watch Giveaway! This is for the Men (or Women too)!!

As the holidays are fast approaching, many may struggle with finding the most perfect present for our loved ones. I don't know about you but I hate the thought of giving away gift certificates, which is not a bad thing for those who do, but it's just not my stle. And the people that I have the most trouble getting gifts for are the guys in my life!! At first you might be like naw guys are easy you can get them anything, but when you really think about it there are not many great options out there that will not put you in overwhelming debt! Women are so easy I mean you can buy them clothing, bags, cosmetics, jewelry and the list goes on and on.....but for men it's a different story. I mean the options are clothing, electronics and not a lot that I can think of at the top of my head.

So when a rep from Orient USA contacted me in the hopes that I would like to do a giveaway for the men folk of my blog (I know you exist!!) you know I jumped on that! The rep even said that many of the giveaway winners in the past who were women decided to keep the watch for themselves which make sense since there is a trend for women to wear oversized watches!

Orient Watches has two great sites that help you in your quest to find the perfect watch for not only for men but for women as well! They have a great blog which specializes in all the latest trends in Men's Watches! One of the watches that has caught my eye is the CEV09002W! I love the big bold look of it yet the leather band allows for it to be soft enough to be worn by a women!

Also if you head on over to their main site you can sign up to get a very special mystery package that includes something special such as keychains, stickers, tools, coupons and much more!! But one of the most exciting things is that there can be a watch in your special mystery package!

The Giveaway:



Orient Watches has kindly offered to give one lucky Giveaway Diva Reader the lovely Orient CET07001B! Super snazzy watch! This watch would look amazing on any wrist be it man or woman! It has a retail value of $70!!

And boos! The giveaway is only for residents in the US! Sorry my lovely international readers that's the sponsors rules! =(

This giveaway will conclude on December 30th! So you will have a new watch just in time for the new year! =)

How to Enter:

1) Visit the Orient Watch website and comment on one other watch that you love for one entry! (Note that you must do this before any further entries can count!)
2) Blog about this giveaway! Include the link back to the giveaway post as well as a link to Orient Watches (http://www.orientwatchusa.com/) Do this and you get six extra entries!

Dear Winter....


You suck! Just thought I would throw it out there. Yes that puppy looks like he's having a fantabulous time frolicking in the snow, but what you don't know is that you caused his face to freeze like that!! Can't you see the fear and terror in his eyes?

Sure you may seem all innocent with your fluffy white poweder, but what you don't realize is that it builds up and it's cold and oh so wet! And not to mention it is impossible to do anything when all the cars are basically crawling. You may look pretty but when it all comes down to it if this was an elementry school game of dodgeball you would be the season that would be picked last. In fact the teams would fight about who would be stuck with you on their team.

Anyway as you can tell I'm not a big fan of winter right now and I guess the feeling is mutual because it is supposed to snow this weekend! Totally unexpected since most winters I don't see snow at all, just rain rain and more rain.

Thanks to all who wished me luck on my finals! I only have one left to go and then I'm on break and that means I get to update more which is something I want to do but don't have the time for! I also realzie that I don't talk a lot on here, which is too bad because I think I'm funny...I'm not the only one that thinks that...my boyfriend thinks that too..but I think he's just saying that to make me feel better!

In other news, my sister was on the Skytrain tonight and was witness to this crazy fight and when one guy pulled out a knife, everyone ran for it. What I don't get and have always wondered is how the heck do guys carry knives? I mean it's not something that you can just put in your pocket and run out to door with....I mean ouch if you sat on it...but if more guys sat on their knives maybe we wouldn't have the problem of people whipping out knives to deal with confrontation.....its called conflict resolution....learn it and love it, and it will save you a trip to the hospital!

Hope you all are having a great Friday! All I can say is TGIF!

PS: Sorry for not being able to draw winners! There were way too many entries and I have way to much on my plate right now but I swear I will get the winners out by early next week! Pinky Swear!

PPS: Enter the contests that I have going on! =)

Dana's Jewelry Designs Review

TGIF!! I hope you are having an amazing Friday and are all looking forward to the weekend!! With the weekend comes the opportunity to go out and let your hair down! I love getting all dressed up and of course accessorizing...which you all by now know is my favourite thing to do!! I recently discovered this great little jewelry designer and her amazing shop: Dana Jewelry Designs!

Dana comes to us from Tacoma, Washington where she is a writer and jewelry designer specializing in gem trees and wire wrapping. I really love t
he look of gem trees I just love how they sparkle and really stand out in a room. Dana's trees are exceptionally well crafted and sparkly!! She also has this amazing gem tree kit selling on her site for only $16!!! This would make a lovely present for the crafter in your life!

I love how she uses crystals, peals, lampwork beads and fine gemstones in order to craft some amazing designs! Her goal is to make simple pieces that work well
with your exiting jewelry collection, and her pieces are so so stylish that they can be worn for many years to come!

I also love going onto her blog because
she has amazing giveaways and also amazing DIY!! I love DIYs and don't mind getting dirty or even burnt by a glue gun, but sadly I just don't have the time to do so! However all the tutorials on her blog look fun and easy to make and most importantly quick!

I received some amazing earrings from Dana and I was really excited to do this review! The earrings came in a great little organza bag and I really liked the presentation. The earrings that were sent were garnets on 24k gold hooks and embellished with gold vermicelli. These earrings are quite delicate looking but they pack a mean punch! The garnets were super sparkly and had a light that radiated from it. While the earrings were simple and and delicate looking they had a relatively heavy feel, so that you knew that quality materials were used. I really love the small detail in these earrings such as the gold cap on the largest garnet...it was tres pretty! Although I am into bigger, louder earrings I felt that these earrings were a nice change to my usual danglers.

A look at the earrings I received!

A closer up view to see all the pretty details! =)

Dana has many places in which you can purchase her jewelry such as her Artfire shop, 1000 Markets shop and her Etsy Shop! You should really swing by and see all her amazing designs! Also swing by her blog to say hi, there is always so much going on!
