Wild Butterfly Boutique Giveaway! Winner's Choice!

I fell totally in love with J.Crew's Bubble Necklace that was seen literally on the very fancy necks of a ton of bloggers and celebs! You know the one i'm talking about.....the statement necklace with multiple bubbles that came in a plethora of different and vibrant colours. While I totally fell for the necklace I definitely am not in love with the very hefty price tag that comes along with it. If you are like me and long for and dream about that necklace there are other options to get a very similar look.

That is where Wild Butterfly Boutique comes in, they offer many statement necklaces and accessories for the fraction of the price. I was glad to see that my beloved Bubble Necklace was one item that they featured on their site. And the fact that it comes in a ton of amazing colours! Can you believe it was only $19.99?? They also have a mini version of the Bubble Necklace as well!

I love that nothing on their site is $40 and in fact most of their necklaces are under $20!

You can keep up with new additions, discounts and sales through Wild Butterfly Boutique's Facebook Page, see what inspires them on Pinterest and of course check out their great photos through Instagram!

So head on over to Wild Butterfly Boutique to score some amazing designer inspired jewelry for a fraction of the price!

Dear Mom......

This post is delayed because of course I was spending it with my mom! I think as you get older you begin to realize and truly appreciate just how much your mom loves you and has sacrificed for you. Me and my two sisters would definitely not be who we are today if it wasn't for our mom and her love! Sometimes it's easy to take her for granted because you know no matter what she will always be there for you no matter what.

So this goes out to all the Mothers out there, thank you for having so much love in your heart that you would be willing to risk anything to ensure that there is a smile on your child's face. Thank you for the countless hours you put into making sure that the tiny things such as making lunches, cleaning up after us and reassuring us that everything is all right. Thank you for believing in us and seeing the success within us, when even we had given up hope on ourselves. Thank you for being you.

Sending so much love to the most amazing women in my mom!

Jewelry by Kat Review

Mother's Day is fast approaching! Have you got your very special mother a present yet? If not and you are struggling to find something that is both affordable yet will make her go wow, Jewelry by Kat is an amazing shop that has statement necklaces and bracelets for super affordable prices.

To get a sense of just how affordable her prices are what would you think you would have to pay for a necklace, bracelet and earring set? $150 maybe? Even a $100? Nope you'd be wrong since Kat offers amazing jewelry sets for only $40!!!! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the prices because really when you factor in all of the materials and the time, I would never ever guess $40! In fact nothing in her store is over $40!! Pretty good if you are on a budget!

Jewelry by Kat features statement pieces that feature gemstones, crystals and highly detailed beads. Another signature of pieces from Jewelry by Kat is Kat's love of the use of super fancy toggle closures. I think that's the best way to finish off a piece of jewelry and just shows how much detail goes into each piece.

I love that almost all of the necklaces come with an added bonus of matching earrings so you can wear them together or apart!

My Review: 

Each Jewelry by Kat piece comes ready to be wrapped and presented in a white gift box which is also great for storing your jewelry when not in use. 

The first piece that I was sent to review was an amazing Turquoise Beaded Necklace and Earrings Set 

This set features real round turquoise coin beads that are separated with super sparkly green crystals

What is really unique about this necklace is the huge amount of sparkly crystals that are formed in a cluster formation that hangs around the neck so that it is off the side and leaves a lasting and unexpected statement. 

The earrings are made with the same sparkly green crystals to match the necklace!

The amazing Turquoise Beaded Necklace and Earrings Set is only $35!!!!

The second thing that I was sent to review was a truly amazing set! It is the Black Beaded Necklace Set and it consists of an amazing necklace, matching bracelet and earrings to match. 

Look at the amazing detail of the bracelet clasp!

Love how the shiny brown beads goes so well with the smaller black beads! Such a timeless and great colour combination that would work well with any outfit!

Again look at how many beads are in that cluster! A great way to visually break up the black beads add to add a fun focal point to the necklace when worn. 

Love that the bracelet and necklace both have matching clasps! I mean look at how pretty that is....I almost want to wear the necklace so that everyone can see what the clasp looks like! 

Love all the movement that I get from this bracelet! It looks amazing on and you can even layer it with other bracelets to achieve the layered look that is so popular today! 

I still can't believe that the Black Beaded Necklace Set is only $40!!!! 

So if you love Jewelry by Kat as much as I do you will be so happy to hear that I will be having a giveaway soon so that you can a win a set of your very own! Look out for that soon!!

If you are looking for a pair of glasses than you are in luck because I'm so happy and excited to share that Firmoo is giving out free glasses to everyone! What makes it even better is that it is worldwide!

If you are sick and tired of your overused or very unstylish glasses and want a change this is the perfect time to replace them! Firmoo as a great selection of glasses that are fashionable and up to date. I am so bad at this because I have worn the same pair for so long but it is actually highly recommended that you get your eyes checked and have your glasses prescription updated once a year in order to reduce the risk of your eyesight deteriorating from using an old prescription that is not compatible with your eye needs. I mean it makes sense that your eyes change over time!

But then again I understand that glasses can be expensive but with Firmoo they don't have to be! Firmoo offers a great selection of men and women's glasses and even prescription sunglasses at an amazingly low price. In fact they often have many great coupon codes and discounts so that you can save even more!

If you are a first time customer of Firmoo you can get a free pair so that you can test out their quality and design. All you have to pay is a minimum $6.95 shipping fee and you can get frames and lenses - a complete pair of sunglasses for free!

But if you happen to miss the free pair don't be sad because Firmoo is offering a great 20% discount off both the frames and the total shipping fee!

So head on over to Firmoo now to get more details on their Crazy Giveaway!
