    accessories trends 2015—The Rocksbox

    Accessories trends 2015—The Rocksbox I heard a lot about Rocksbox and everything I heard was good feedback. I even went online to check about reviews and I saw rating of 4.5 stars out of 5. So I did a little bit of digging about this company. Here is what I found out: Founded in 2012 by Meaghan Rose & Maia Bittner, the San Francisco-based startup has raised $1.5 million in seed funding. Their main business is the new way of shopping which is called Jewelry Subscription service. Basically you pay a very small amount of money every month but you can wear the fancy designer jewelry pieces which normally you…

    Exclusive Interview with My Arm Charms

    Exclusive Interview with My Arm Charms It seems like my blog anniversary is always a special day for me. On the day of my two month anniversary, I received an email from Leslie, the owner of My Arm Charms. She showed big interest in my blog and asked if we can work together. As you all know, I just celebrated my 4 month anniversary a few days ago, so I am basically still a newbie to this blog business. But after I saw all of her cute and affordable bracelets online, I decided to give it a try. My requirement is I must use the bracelet first to see if…

    The all-in-one bracelet: Brandy Layered Wrap Bracelet

    The all-in-one bracelet: Brandy Layered Wrap Bracelet It seems there are always some pieces in your jewelry cabinet that you go back to over and over. It may be a vintage piece that has sentimental meaning. Or perhaps it’s your latest bit of bling you came across in that trendy new boutique. If you are interested in want more info you can search for it online. The problem often is being able to wear those pieces on a regular basis. I have some large pins and brooches that I really love, but they’re so heavy I have to make sure I’m wearing a sturdy jacket or top to keep from…

    SPRING BREAK CANCUN TIPS—CHICHEN ITZA PART 2

    SPRING BREAK CANCUN TIPS—CHICHEN ITZA PART 2 One down, six to go! In yesterday’s post I started talking about our day trip we took during our spring break vacation in Cancun. We were at the all inclusive resort of Grand Bahia Principe Coba in Cancun and even though they did a great job of offering enough activities to keep anyone busy, we decided to leave for a day to do some exploring. We booked a trip to the Mayan pyramid and ruins of Chichen Itza with a tour company called Cancun Passion. We got on a colorful and comfortable tour bus and made the 2.5 hour drive from our resort…

    SPRING BREAK CANCUN TIPS—Chichen Itza Part 1

    SPRING BREAK CANCUN TIPS—Chichen Itza Part 1 Chicken Pizza? Sounds tasty! We weren’t sure what we wanted to do on our Cancun Spring Break vacation so we just sort of went day by day. We went to the all inclusive resort of Grand Bahia Principe Coba and there’s really no need to ever leave if you don’t want to. There’s plenty to do or lots of places to just chillax if that’s your preference. We weren’t sure which way we wanted to go so didn’t reserve any day trips before we arrived. When we booked our vacation on the Apple Vacations website there were lots of suggested excursions to choose…

    SPRING BREAK CANCUN TIPS—Underwater Camera and Watch Review

    SPRING BREAK CANCUN TIPS—Underwater Camera and Watch Review Just add water! Expensive electronics such as digital cameras and dressy wristwatches don’t usually get along too well with wet places. And we were going to a resort with 4 swimming pools, a sister resort with another three pools and about a half a mile of beach along the Caribbean. Was this a recipe for disaster? Oh come on. I’m not only a professional bloggers but a smart one too! So we were prepared. My husband had been asking for a “vacation” watch that he could wear to the pool or beach without fear of it becoming a soggy, foggy, non-functional bracelet.…

    SPRING BREAK CANCUN TIPS—Grand Bahia Principe Coba Resort Review Part 2

    Wait, there’re HOW many pools? In yesterday’s post I told how we had gotten to our resort, the Grand Bahia Principe Coba several hours before we could get into our room. We walked around a bit, ate a couple meals and used up our daily internet allowance while we were waiting. Then promptly at 3pm we were ready to go. These places are usually spread out. You don’t stay in a big building with hundreds of rooms. Instead you will be in one of dozens of similar looking smaller structures they call Villas. At our resort these had 3 floors and maybe 10 or 12 suites on each floor. As…

    SPRING BREAK CANCUN TIPS—Grand Bahia Principe Coba Resort Review Part 1

    SPRING BREAK CANCUN TIPS—Grand Bahia Principe Coba Resort Review I’m full, let’s eat! When you go on vacation what kind of lodging choices do you look for? One of the old standbys; So-and-so Inn: Or Such-and-such Suites? There is nothing wrong with these places. I’ve stayed in many of the big chain hotels for days, weeks and even months and always had a good experience. But this was usually for business travel, either mine or sometimes I would accompany my husband on his work trips. When it’s your big vacation trip of the year though, you want something a bit more out of the ordinary. A place more geared to…
