The Daily Crave: Ippolita 5 Diamond Bangle

I'm totally lusting after Ippolita bangles!! I love the look of the chunky gemstones and diamonds featured in a delicate bangle! I would love to have these amazing bangles on my wrist! Maybe a birthday present? =)
Although Ippolita bangles will make a huge dent in your piggy bank Stella and Dot makes a very similar looking set of bangles, the Devi Bangles at only $79.99 for a set of 3! $79.99 would only get you a quarter of one of the cheaper Ippolita bangles since they retail in the hundreds and even thousands! The 5 diamond bangle will set you back $600 for only one!

CSN Cookware.com Review

If you are looking for something, chances are you will be able to find it at CSN Stores. They have more that 200 stores that cater to every need whether you are looking for something for your home, your kitchen or even toys for your children. CSN has outlets for every product line imaginable from Bed sets and Barbecue Grills to Espresso Machines and Entertainment Centers.

I think that CSN Stores is such a great resource since they have so many different brand offerings for different items. If you are looking for cookware they literally have hundreds of different options at different price points suited to every budget. And many of CSN Stores different shops also offer free shiping which helps out on the costs.

CSN Stores also has a great bunch of discounts and low prices that are cheaper than paying retail. So how can anyone ever compare to CSN Stores incomparable selection, a trained service team, and prices that won't be beat!


My Review:


This is my second review with the amazing CSN stores and I decided that instead of getting a fancy smancy new handbag, that I should be nice and get my mom something that she really wanted and needed. That's why I headed off to cookware.com in order to explore their huge selection of great products for the kitchen!

After looking at their huge selection of pots and pans sets I finally settled upon the Radiance Everyday 7 Piece Cookware Set. This great set is originally$76.94 but thanks to cookware.com you can save a great deal and only pay $56.89

The Radiance Everyday 7 Piece Cookware Set comes with a total of seven pieces: 4 pots and three matching lids. The pots are made of aluminum and thankfully they are nonstick! You really need nonstick pans because I hate when things get stuck to the bottom of a pot and you really have to work hard in order to unstick it.

The quality of the pots are great and they have a great weight to them without being to bulky. They are the perfect size to create meals both small and large and I know that my family will get great use of these pots not to mention all the yummy meals that can be cooked with these pots.

Thanks goes out to CSN Stores and cookware.com who provided me this great product for a review!

Head on over to CSN Stores now to view their amazing selection of over 200 different shops! And don't forget to enter the CSN stores giveaway for a $50 gift card! you can enter here!

Falling in Love With: ZeeBerry Jewelry Giveaway


Since I am a huge fan of jewelry and giving it as a gift for any location it's important to find something that will not only dazzle but give your wallet a break. While diamonds are a girls best friend sometimes it's more fun to be trendy. ZeeBerry is a great shop that has a huge selection of amazing designer jewelry.



ZeeBerry offers free shipping within the US not only for when they send it to you but also offers free shipping if you do not like the piece and would like to keep it. This is so great because sometimes it's hard to determine if you would really like to wear a certain style or if it even works in your wardrobe, with this free shipping both ways you can make sure that you really like something without the pressure of having to keep it.



ZeeBerry has a great selection of the hottest jewelry designers. The designers that they carry include Alex and Ani, Brazilets, Dogeared, Ellen Himic, Energy Muse, Ettika, Foxy Originals, Jessica Elliot, Rachel Leigh, Sorrelli, Tarina Tarantino, Wendy Mink and they even have their own in house brand ZeeBerry! They have such a great selection of designers, in fact three of the lines that they carry actually has been featured in The Giveaway Diva before!


Not only does Zeeberry make it really easy to shop for others, with their “Shop by Theme/Charm” and “Shop by Price”, including over 500 items under $50 but they also pride themselves in exceptional, personal customer service – they will do what it takes to make sure you are satisfied with your purchases!


My Review:

ZeeBerry
has a huge selection of Alex and Ani jewelry! I have reviewed an Alex and Ani bracelet before and I was eager to add to my collection.


I was sent the Alex and Ani Lifetime of Luck set of 7 Bracelets in Russian Silver. This set of seven bangles includes five thin ones and two thicker bangles with charms. These charms include the Four Leaf Clover and the Tree of Life charms. Alex and Ani bracelets are eco friendly and offered in two different colours Russian Gold and Russian Silver which are all over recycled metals. Another great thing is that it's handcrafted in USA so that means the quality will be great and long lasting.
Courtney Cox, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jennifer Esposito are just a few celebrities that love Alex and Ani. Alex and Ani is regularly featured in Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Glamour, Lucky, InStyle, Life and Style, OK! and Us Weekly. This bracelet set is priced at $52 which is such an amazing price considering that if they were sold separately it would cost you so much more! The charm bracelets itself cost $21 each if you had to buy them separately.



You can see Alex and Ani's patented bangle design in which it effectively expands so that the bracelets are truly fit one size. With small wrists it's often so difficult to find bracelets or bangles that can actually fit. As you can see in that picture the bangle expands by so much!


A picture of my bangle set mixed in with the other Alex and Ani bangle that I have. As you can see the mix of gold and silver bangles looks great and these bracelets look amazing!

Love these bangles? How would you like to win it? Or if bangles aren't your thing how about a $52 gift certificate?

So that means that there are lots and lots of pieces to fit every budget!! I really love all their silver pendents and that they also have a Designer Jewelry Collection which may be a bit more pricey but so worth it for the quality and attention to detail that you will get!

My Review:


Joolwe was so kind to offer a great piece of their jewelry for me to review! I chose to review the Sterling Silver and Round-cut Cubic Zirconia Classic Stud and Pendant Set. Every girl should have a classic round diamond stud and matching round diamond pendant in their jewelry collection! While I love trendy jewelry I know that these classics will never go out of style. The great thing is that not many people can afford to buy the real thing but still want the classic look of these two items. This set allows you to capture some of that classic style without breaking the bank!

The set came to me packaged in Joolwee's signature packaging! I loved the elegance of the packaging and it made it seem like it was very expensive.

The studs and the pendants were such great quality and it really had such fire that it was hard to believe that they actually only cost $24.99!! They were the perfect size and it wasn't too overwhelming. The fact that they were not huge was a plus because it looked like it was more real. I enjoy throwing these pieces on when I'm in the mood for a more classic and streamlined look.

The Giveaway:

The stud earrings and necklace has earned itself a great spot in my jewelry wardrobe! How would you like to win one as well? One lucky winner will win the same set that I got to review! Trust me ladies it's so gorgeous!

This giveaway is only open to residents of Canada and the US! Sorry my international readers! But don't worry I have tons more planned for you! This giveaway will end on February 25th!
