Sorry for being MIA

I hate how sometimes life can get in the way of what I truly love which is blogging! I have been so busy the last couple of weeks that blogging has really taken a back seat to other matters in my life. I really hope that I can post a lot more now that life has kinda settled down a bit!

Hope you are enjoying the holidays and for some of my international readers I would like to wish you a very merry Christmas!

The Gift of Shine: Your Daily Jewels Review

If you are looking for amazing jewelry at super affordable prices then you should definitely check out Your Daily Jewels, an amazing shop on Etsy!

Your Daily Jewels is full of amazing pieces that are lovingly handcrafted by the very talented Norah.

While designing jewelry is a huge passion for Norah, her biggest passion is being a physical therapist and taking care of children with disabilities. In fact this is how she got her start! Norah started off by making simple bracelets for her young patients and would tell them a little story behind each bead or stone that was in the bracelet. Norah could see how much they loved their jewels and how much of an impact that they had.


Norah is dedicated to providing the best service as well as quality when it comes to her jewels because she truly believes that good business is built on the foundation of relationships and returning customers.


Norah is happy that Your Daily Jewels can provide modern and glamorous jewelry that will make the wearer feel absolutely beautiful every time she wears it.



Your Daily Jewels features amazing bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings and boasts affordable prices starting from only $12!



Norah also has a great deal going on at the moment where she is offering 15% off with code: CHS15OFF+ F R E E Shipping! Yay for affordable jewelry and being able to save even more! She also has an amazing holiday packaging!

Look at how amazing the packaging is! Perfect for gift-giving! Also if you can't get enough of Norah's amazing designs you should check out her other Etsy site Rustic Rock Jewelry! There you will find rustic jewelry packed with druzy stones and rough cut gemstones.

My Review:

Norah was so kind to send my an amazing piece of jewelry from Your Daily Jewels!


I was sent the amazing Teal Green Quartz Necklace and the necklace is truly so pretty!


This amazing necklace is a fancy cut faceted briolette pendant that is wire wrapped with sterling silver. The pendant is huge and makes a big statement and is made of a lab-created briolette that is one and a quarter inch long.

The briolette is wire wrapped securely and attached to a silver plated bail that is full of sparkly CZs. This beautiful pendant hangs from a silver plated 18 inch non-tarnish chain that closes with a lobster clasp. You can have the choice of upgrading the chain to sterling silver for an extra $11 which is at her cost.

I love how sparkly this necklace is and how well it captures the light. Although I sadly couldn't capture just how sparkly the necklace is with my camera.


If you love Your Daily Jewels as much as I do then you will be so happy to hear that one very lucky The Giveaway Diva reader will win this amazing necklace that I got to review!

The Gift of Glam: Anokha Jewlery Giveaway

While looking for the perfect gifts or just trying to find the finishing touches to glam up your holiday outfit a great place to go is Anokha Jewelry! This is the second time that Anokha Jewelry has been featured on the Giveaway Diva and the last time they were featured, readers fell in love with their great gemstone jewelry.



The Anokha Jewelry collection features a wide selection of bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings that are all made out of silver and feature a wide range of semi-precious stones.



Anokha means "unique" in Hindi and I think that this is a fitting name for this collection that has been inspired by Indian jewelers, who are known for hand-carving the designs right into the pieces.

The elegant jewelry is made to showcase and highlight the natural beauty of the women who wears the pieces.

My Review:

Each Anokha Jewelry piece comes wrapped in their signature red box for easy gift-giving

I was sent the amazing Khushi Earrings in order to conduct a review.

These amazing earrings are super playful and swing with movement, perfect for capturing everyone's attention.

Featuring clusters of cognac coloured smokey topaz, the addition of the rose quartz beads adds a whole different dimension to these elaborate earrings.


These are definitely statement earrings and due to their classic colours can go well with any outfit!

The Giveaway:

One very lucky reader will win the amazing Khushi Earrings that are valued at $95!

This giveaway is open to all and will end on January 6th, 2011!

Luckily Eden Fantasys has a ton of great beauty products that can easily take care of most of your gift lists!





The items that I currently have my eye on are the luscious smelling products from Cake Beauty! Seriously everytime I slather on some of their delectable lotions I feel the sudden urge to take a lick!


I have my eye on the Winter Wonder Lipgloss Trio which has the delicious flavors of Vanilla Frost, a creamy pearl with opalescent shine; Pink Icicle, a sheer pink with diamond sparkle; and Gold Glimmer, glistening nude with a golden sheen. All of these lipglosses would be perfect for any holiday parties.


Also from Cake Beauty comes the Holiday Handful Trio which is a set of three of their most divine smelling handcreams! Included in this marvelous set: Milkmade, a whole vanillia milk and baked rasberry; Unsweet, a uncoloured and un-scented lotion; and Vanilla Snow Women, a sweet vanilla cream scent which also happens to be my personal fave!


So head on over to Eden Fantasys to check out these and other great products.
