Perfumed Jewelry

*Disclaimer - I received the item mentioned below, free of charge, for review purposes.  In no way did this alter my review.  All of my opinions expressed in this post are one-hundred percent honest and true.*

Two things that are absolute must haves in my life is jewelry and perfume. Now, I can experience the joy of BOTH all in one!  That is because PerfumedJewelry offers just that! 

Getting your hands on Perfumed Jewelry is as easy as 1-2-3!
  1. Select a pendant
  2. Select a fragrance
  3. Checkout
Of course, I was excited to select an item from! I mean, who wouldn't be! You begin by choosing from five silver pendants, and three gold pendants, including a limited edition gold pendant which retails at $1,000. I ended up selecting the Gold Harmony Pendant, which is absolutely stunning, in real life. Secondly, I was able to select which scent I wanted, which proved to be quite a task because they offer so many lovely fragrances. You will find everything from Elizabeth Taylor to Gucci, and so many more.  Because they offer so many different perfume scents, choosing just one proved to be a hard decision.

My order from arrived in a box, wrapped with a branded ribbon. It fit nicely in the gift bag, that was included. Even more of a reason why it makes a great gift! You don't have to worry about wrapping it. This gift definitely speaks "Outside the Box" although it is in the box! 

Now, your probably wondering how the whole concept of the perfumed Jewelry works.  It is actually very simple.  In addition to the pendant, you will receive a pretty jar where the JewelStone stones are stored.  Each jar contains three JewelStones, which should last for three months.  The pendant contains a small clasp that easily opens, so you can place a JewelStone inside of it.I found it best to place the JewelStone back in the jar when not in use, as it holds it's scent longer, when stored in the jar. 

How does the scent compare to the regular perfume scent you may be wondering. I received the DKNY Be Delicious scent,  which just so happens to be my favorite scent of perfume. It smelled exactly like it usually does, only it does not lose it's scent. This ensures that I don't have to worry about my perfume losing it's scent while I am wearing it. It also ensures, I do not have to tote it around with me everywhere I go. 

BUY IT:  You can purchase the Gold Harmony Perfume Jewelry for $210.

Snuggle The BabyBook

*Disclaimer - I received the book mentioned below, free of charge, for review purposes. In no way did this alter my review.  All of my opinions expressed in this post are one-hundred percent honest and true.*

In our household, we continually read to our children, beginning when they are just babies. Reading to your child allows you to spend quality time together while helping them build vocabulary skills. 

Snuggle The Baby is an interactive board book that works as a manual to help teach young children, how to take care of babies.  This book makes a perfect book to read to children who are expecting a baby sibling. Additionally, it can be read to toddlers because they have fun interacting with the book.  I know this first hand because I read the book to my soon-to-be 18 month old daughter and she loves it.

Snuggle The Baby book helps introduce children into the life of a baby. From swaddling the baby, to playing with the baby, and even changing the baby.  The cool thing about the book is that it is interactive, which means children can actually use the flaps, cut-outs, and items to care for the baby. Children will enjoy:
  • Tickling
  • Feeding
  • Swaddling
  • Rocking
  • Tucking in Baby
Along with the fun interactivities, the book also includes narration, so children know exactly what is going on.  My daughter loves this book because she is a huge doll lover, so she pretends the babies in the book are just like her dolls. It was so cute to watch her trying to feed the baby her bottle. My boys like reading the book because they feel it is like taking care of their baby sister. Overall, this is a fabulous book and we would highly recommend it to anyone who is expecting a second child or who has a doll loving toddler. 

AGE RANGE: 1-4 Years

Power Rangers Turbo

*Disclaimer - I received the DVD mentioned below, free of charge, for review purposes.  In no way did this alter my review.  All of my opinions expressed in this review are one-hundred percent honest and true.*

Attention all Power Rangers fans!!!  Power Rangers Turbo Volume One is now available on DVD. This exciting DVD set includes all twenty three episodes on three DVD's.  Now is your change to watch all of the first episodes from the series on a 3-DVD box set!  

SYNOPSISContinuing from the exciting events of Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, the five Turbo Rangers use their new powers, weapons and high-tech supercharged vehicles to battle evil at faster speeds than ever before! The beautiful yet vicious space pirate Divatox follows the Power Rangers to Angel Grove to get revenge for ruining her planned wedding to the volcanic island deity Maligore. From her mobile Subcraft armed to the gills with torpedoes and explosives and crewed by a motley bunch of monsters, she relentlessly pursues our heroes. But the Rangers are not alone in their fight, as they are aided by Dimitria, a wise sage and friend of Zordon; Alpha 6, an advanced robotic sidekick with a streetwise demeanor, the Blue Senturion, a robotic intergalactic traffic cop from the future; and the elusive Phantom Rangers, a one-man army whose very identity is a mystery. An all-new team of Rangers is armed and ready to carry on the Power Rangers legacy!

All three of my sons are Power Rangers fans, which means it is one of the only cartoons that they actually agree upon watching together. They all sat down with their snacks while they watched several of the episodes.  Because there are 23 episodes, they will be watching Power Rangers episodes for weeks. We would recommend this DVD set to any and all Power Ranger fans.
