Design Glassware by Mont Bleu {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.
This winter has been a little rough on my nails, and I’ve noticed a little more cracking and breaking than usual.  A sharp nail is practically a weapon, especially with soft baby faces around here, so as soon as I break a nail, I b-line for a nail file.  In my 20-something years, I have only used el-cheapo flimsy, cardboard files you find at dollar stores 10/$1.  Never again.  I’ve stumbled across a diamond of a store called Design Glassware by Mont Bleu, and their jewelry, accessories, and beauty products are going to dazzle you!
logo.jpg
I didn’t even know glass files existed, but I tell you, I am throwing out all my cheap bendable sandpaper files and using these BREATHTAKING glass files from Mont Bleu as long as I live!  I can’t get over this glass nail file with Swarovski crystals!
IMG_3254 copy
Ok, I am overly dramatically squeamish and phobic about dry-on-dry friction, like nails on a chalkboard or Styrofoam on cardboard.  Likewise, the filing of fingernails on something as rough as sandpaper is not an activity I enjoy.  Hate it, actually.  These glass files have a completely different feel, and are twice as effective as a standard file.  They smooth away rough breaks and broken pieces with minimal smooth rubbing back and forth.  The surface feels as if it has a micro-texture that allows for smoother, more thorough, consistent filing.  See broken nail below?  A few seconds and a few glides of the file later, gone.
IMG_3256 copy
These handpainted nail files are only 6,00 €, which is only $7.83 USD!
Not to mention that they are GORGEOUS!!  Have you seen anything so lovely, let alone on a nail file!?  I feel like royalty using something so pretty.  Same goes for all the other dreamy goodies from Mont Bleu.  Check out my compact mirror, which practically looks like a jeweled artifact that should be preserved in a museum:
IMG_3432 copy
This mirror is not cheap in quality.  Mont Bleu’s mirrors consist of two reflecting metal surfaces instead of actual glass so I don’t have to worry about them falling out, cracking, or breaking into sharp pieces in my purse.  One side is standard, while the other is magnifying, and the jewels are stunning!  And just wait, this keeps getting better.  Use tweezers?  Of course you do.  Look at these:
IMG_3435 copy
In addition to being beautifully hand decorated with jewels, the slightly grippy surface on my dazzling Swarovski Eyebrow Teezers make them ergonomic to hold, and the slanted tips are perfectly angled and effectively designed.  If you haven’t yet found something you love, look at my Pen with Swarovski Crystals!  I am SO particular with my pens!!  One year for Christmas, without realizing it, my husband and I BOTH gave each other high-quality pens (and this is weird because who gives pens to their spouse for Christmas?).  We both know how important it is to have nice writing utensils and we get so fed up with crappy ink and cheap supplies!  So you have my honest and experienced opinion that these crystal-adorned pens from Mont Bleu are both beautiful and pleasant to use.  The ink glides, the texture is slick, and the weight is nice and heavy.  Nothing cheap went into making this.
IMG_3427
Mont Bleu has dozens of other dazzling beauty products, including adorned hairbrushes, jewelry, nail scissors, etc. etc. etc.

Mother’s Day is only 3 weeks away!  If you already have your mother’s gift taken care of, give yourself a high five and a round of applause for staying ahead of the game.  For the rest of us, its crunch time!  Tradition at my house says mom gets bakeware for Mother’s Day.  This year, I’ve been begging and begging for a real set of pots and pans because we’re still using odds and ends and abandoned pieces we’ve collected from old roommates.  No really, its pathetic what I’ve been using for saucepan lids these days.  So it was settled–“Charlie” gets a toolbox for Father’s Day, and I’m getting a dreamy set of cookware.  Mother’s day cannot come fast enough.  Now I’m thinking, since I have this fabulous set of pans coming my way, what would be the perfect addition to my ensemble?  Ooo, how about a darling apron!  And some cute hot pads!  While I’m at it, some flirty rubber gloves!  Courtesy of Grandway, check, check, and check!

First, let me show you the darling cooking aprons from Grandway:

ApronsGroup1

My turn!  Do you love my hot apron?!  I’m wearing The Lindy apron – a solid red with leopard details, adorable buttons, adjustable button and loops in the back neck, and extra long ties so that I can tie a bow in the front.  This pocket in the front is huge, but SO useful.  I tried on this apron yesterday morning and have hardly taken it off–especially for our Sunday post-church-scramble to get the house put back together and dinner on the table.  Its just so cute and comfortable!

IMG_3564 copy

I love every single stinkin adorable apron from Grandway!  Putting one of these on is like getting into a darling little dress when its time to bake!

Next, I’d love to showcase Grandway’s Gloveables!

501k-yellow-tulips-house-gloves 508l-green-lace-house-gloves 506d-purple-kitchen-gloves

Since I started really getting down and dirty with the cleaning around here (little boys are SO messy!), I’ve taken rubber gloves more seriously.  I love being able to protect my hands from scalding hot dish water while also protecting my nailpolish from chipping away.  Plus I feel like a rockstar when I’m cleaning the toilet, and who can honestly say that? IMG_3581 copy

These are fantastic!  They easily cover enough of my arm that I don’t have to worry about rolling up my sleeves.  The rubber is thick and the glossy bow makes these almost too sexy for the kitchen.  I can definitely tell that these gloves were designed for women, since my hands fits perfectly (like a glove, haha), but the finger space is still roomy and comfortable.

Now to complete my ensemble, I need a cute oven mitt set to match my apron and gloves!  The buttoned cuff on the mitt is just too much.  I can’t get over the cuteness.

IMG_3570 copy

I’m sure one of these sets would look lovely in your kitchen too!  Don’t these make you feel like baking?!

Next up, do you ever find yourself hunting down bags to drop off your dry cleaning?  I’ll admit to once dropping mine off in a trash bag over a hanger.  Classy, Camille.  These dry cleaning bags are one of those unnecessary necessities, and oh so pretty!  Whoever is doing your dry cleaning is bound to think you’re a movie star when you drop off your stuff in one of these.

ls110-laundry-bag-teal-dry-cleaningIMG_3481

Ok, to be honest, when I next opened this darling blue box, I wasn’t exactly sure what it was or how to use it, but after trying it out, I totally see the usefulness of it.  These are magnetic key finders.  They consist of some intense little magnets.  Now, I am a culprit of carrying around a “pit”, a giant bag where nothing is organized and I stand at the door searching and searching for my keys among a hundred other things.  With the charm visible outside of your bag, and a magnet on the inside, as you drop your keys in, they cling to the inner magnet and are always there when you need them.  Since the charm is magnetic, you won’t be damaging your nice bag, and you can move it from purse to purse.

And as if this giveaway couldn’t get any better, let’s add a designer luggage tag to the loot!  These feel so Hollywood to me.  Super glamorous and distinguishable.  There is an insert card for your personal information, a metal plate on the bag, glitzy rhinestone studded (!) strap, and all in such a lovely gift box!  This would be a great gift for your girlfriends who love traveling.

IMG_3482

Ladies, show this post to your man and tell him in a not-so-subtle way that this is exactly what you want for Mother’s Day.  Or hurry and order a set for your mom while you’re waiting to see if you’re the winner because…

TWO lucky ducks are going to win everything you see here!  Yes indeed, your own apron, oven mitt set, pair of Gloveables, dry cleaning bag, magnetic key finder, and designer luggage tag!  Wow!

So I’m a youth adviser for the young women in my ward at church, and as leaders, we’re always trying to encourage dressing modestly, first and foremost by what we ourselves are wearing.  Even though I’ve been trying to dress modestly my entire life, I am even more aware of what I’m wearing as I am trying to be a good example to my girls.

Often, we hold youth dances, where modesty standards are strictly enforced.  Get this: if anyone shows up to the dance wearing clothes at are sleeveless, skirts that are too short, or anything too tight or revealing, they are told to change and if they didn’t bring a better change of clothes, we have pioneer clothes for them to wear!  Haha, the epitome of modesty, but not exactly the epitome of style.logo

I’ll tell you about a shop that has both modesty and style: Modest Pop.  I have already addressed my frustration about shopping for modest clothes.  Shopping online for something that I can wear without having to add a sweater, leggings, or a shirt underneath is not my favorite pastime.  These clothes are cute, cute, cute, and totally modest, which doesn’t have to mean frumpy.  Or pioneer.

pink_stripe_1024x1024 scarlet_1024x1024 button_cowl_1024x1024

What is really terrific is this selection of cute LDS Sister Missionary clothes!  It is beyond exciting how many women are putting in their papers wanting to serve a full-time mission for our Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!  I like to think that had I been 19 and still single, I would have jumped at the chance as well!  These thousands of women are looking and shopping for conservative and still stylish clothes, so if you know of a soon-to-be-Sister, or you yourself are about to embark on your own LDS mission, consider checking out ModestPop’s selection.  Plus, MISSIONARIES GET 20% OFF!!!  I myself would be all over these maxi skirts and that ruffle jacket.

With all the cute clothes to choose from, and the quickly changing inventory, I was so excited to receive a pink vintage stripe sweater from Modest Pop!  It is extremely soft and stretchy, and it has become the first thing I grab when I’m cold, which is always.  It is a perfect casual sweater, and yet it can be dressed up.  This is what I wore to church last Sunday.

Too bad this sweater is sold out (I think I got the last one?) but have no fear, Modest Pop still carries it in black and white!

One winner will receive $15 to spend at Modest Pop, and you know, that’s great, because $15 could buy you almost anything in the store :)  The prices are that great.

Is there anything more cheerfully adorable than a sock monkey?  His funny little face and his skinny little limbs are just so loveable!  If you own a sock monkey of your own, do you just love it?  If you don’t own a sock monkey, would you love to make your own?!  I am so excited to show you the cute little shop of Sock Monkey.Net, where you can find hand-made SockLady Sock Monkeys, as well as supplies and do-it-yourself Sock Monkey kits!

2763419113_c3459e46f1_o

I think these sock monkey kits are fabulous gift ideas for boys, girls and even grown-ups!  Children love Build-a-Bear because they get to create their own stuffed animal, right?  This is the same idea, but WAY more affordable!  (And cuter).  These kits come with those cute vintage red heeled socks, a needle, thread, black embroidery thread, two button eyes, a pom-pom, red yarn, and a bag of poly-fil fluff.  The budget kits contain every supply except for the fluffy filling (and are only $13!).  And don’t freak out if you’re lacking sewing skills or a sewing machine, because Sock Monkey.Net also carries a deluxe kit that is pre-sewn!  I got to review just such a kit!

Untitled-4

It was a fun little project!  The top-quality classic socks were great to work with.  Stuffing the skinny tail got a bit tricky, but stuffing it with the end of a pencil helped push all the stuffing down.  The kit comes with a nice bobbin full of thread, plenty of black cord, and and a surprising amount of well over enough stuffing, so you could use the extra on another project!  Or another monkey!

Untitled-2

The instructions were simple and easy to follow, and offered some helpful tips.  I’m definitely keeping my instructions to make more in the future!  I originally made this monkey for my 9-month old, but the toddler is just crazy about it!  He runs around the house flinging “Monkey Face” around and takes it up to bed with him for every nap.

Have you noticed how I don’t do a lot of jewelry reviews?  Actually, I have NEVER done a jewelry review because I am very particular about what jewelry I wear, and I have no interest in reviewing jewelry I don’t like!brighthouse baubles square final cropped

I made my husband agree that he would never buy me jewelry I haven’t picked out, and I’m usually hardpressed to find a single thing that fits my style.  That’s why when I stumbled upon Brighthouse Baubles, and instantly found a dozen things I would buy on the spot, I knew I had found a good thing!  And good friends tell their friends about great places to shop 🙂

Here are some of my favorite show stoppers:

IMG_1873

FBPAVEDANGLECREAM-2T

Cream Pave Droplet Earrings: $14

The moment I laid eyes on these pave earrings, I knew I would regret walking away from them!  They are exactly my style–a little vintage, just a little shiny, not too much color, versatile, not too big, not too small, classy, and most importantly: they don’t look homemade!   Brighthouse Baubles sent them along with this necklace, and they are both stunning in every way!

BRIOLETTE-MINT-2T

Briolette Teardrop Bib Necklace: $21

This necklace is one of my new favorites!  I love that you can adjust the length by where you tie the fabric ribbon in the back.  After a few hours of the baby tugging and sucking on this throughout church, I can tell that high quality materials went into making this necklace.  I like how bright and colorful it is, but also not too overwhelming.  The smooth beads aren’t going to spear the baby on my hip, and its not heavy at all.  Very lightweight, unique, and a fabulous statement piece!

Thank you Brighthouse Baubles for a pair of accessories I will wear again and again and again!IMG_1879

And now, Brighthouse Baubles is offering one lucky winner any bauble of your choice!

You’re going to thank me in a few minutes for all the leg work I did in finding you the perfect Valentine’s gifts.  What a chore that can be sometimes, huh?!  Well, take a look at these gems.  All of these come from Uncommon Goods–a store of gifts and novelties that caught my eye with all of their unique jewelry, accessories, and art, all of them perfect Valentines Day gifts.
UncommonGoodsLogoI literally spent several afternoons looking over the site and trying to narrow down my favorites.  It was tough!  Ultimately I picked out three rockin items I can’t wait to tell you about:
21196_zoom1IMG_1783
Perfect for your wife, your mom, your girlfriend, or anyone who loves to read or cook.
This handy gadget is a cook’s dream come true.  I can’t tell you how many times I wished I had one of these in the past.  This stand folds down to the size of a book, so it fits snug right alongside my cookbooks.  As you open it, the stand behind it unfolds and the front page holders spring out automatically.  It does exactly what it claims, and I keep thinking up occasions to pull it out again, like at the computer desk to hold up my daily planner, and in the bathtub to hold up my magazines!  Uncommon Goods has a treasure trove of more gifts for the wife if you’re stumped.
19122_zoom1IMG_1788
Perfect for your hubby, your boyfriend, or your crush that sits behind you in algebra.
Aren’t these great?  I can’t think of a single guy I know that wouldn’t love these.  Little sister, take note.  If you want to win the heart of that cute guy, these and a bag of candy, and you’re sure to be asked out to Prom.

15696_zoom1 IMG_1806

Perfect for your partner-in-crime, your go-to for adventures, your cultured date, or your spouse.
This Ticket Stub Diary caught my eye immediately!  I’m a big scrapbooker, but recently I’ve put most of my time into my personal blog, and I’m left with all these important momentos that I can’t throw out.  They’ve been sitting in a shoe box, and now they all have a much cozier home.  This diary can hold ticket stubs of all sizes, and the sleeves are so roomy that they could hold business cards, receipts, name cards, etc.  Any scrapbooker knows how cool it is that the pages are acid-free, so everything will stay intact for years and years.  How perfect for anyone you’ve spent a lot of time with, or someone you WILL be spending a lot of time with ;).  The empty pages are only blank checks and unwritten tickets to the things you will do in the future!  How thoughtful, memorable, and dare I say, sentimentally romantic!  If I haven’t convinced you to get this ticket stub diary (for $11!!!), then click here for more ideas of what to get your man!
………..
My favorite thing about Uncommon Goods is that all of their products are classy, original, and not in the least bit offensive.  I don’t have to worry as I search the sight that I’ll come across foul language on a t-shirt, bare butts, or raunchy games.  I feel safe and confident (and actually quite inspired) buying anything from their store.  Take a lunch break and enjoy the experience of shopping on Uncommon Goods for the perfect Valentine’s Gift!

It must have been on my first or second date with “Charlie” that we were discussing what about the opposite gender we are most attracted to.  You might have had this conversation with your boyfriend/spouse/stranger before.  You know, is it the guy’s smile, their sense of humor, or their baby blue eyes that make you weak in the knees?  I was pretty shocked at this cute boy’s answers: first and formost, he is attracted to a girl’s SCENT.  Really?!  Above a girl’s looks, legs, personality, or straight teeth, you are most attracted to the way she smells?

Because I really liked this guy, and wanted him to really like me too, you can bet I started paying a LOT of attention to what I smelled like!

Now that we’re married, he still won’t let me pick out perfume for myself.  He has to approve first and he is VERY PARTICULAR.  One day I was going through some of my travel cosmetic bags and found a sample of Alien I couldn’t remember where from, and tried some on for fun.  I instantly received some comment from him like “You smell incredible!” to which I responded, “Wait, I LOVE this too!”  And that very day we knew we had found a keeper and that I HAD to find more of this stuff!

Instead of going out to the mall or some high end department store, I went straight to FragranceNet.com and found exactly what I wanted!  A big beautiful bottle of Alien by Thierry Mugler!

I cannot think of a better gift for a significant other than some delicious fragrance!  Besides perfume and cologne, FragranceNet.com also carries skincare, makeup, hair care, aromatherapy, and candles!  If you’ve already gotten Christmas covered, whether you like it or not, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!

Whether you’re shopping for your man…

Or your man needs some hints on what to give YOU for Christmas…

   

Go see what deals are going on right now at FragranceNet.com, and tell the neighborhood about this giveaway prize!

One winner will receive a $50 giftcard to FragranceNet.com!!!

And you have my personal recommendation to get Alien!  It might win you a husband!  Or atleast a hot New Years Eve date!!

I’ll never forget the first time my son came across a doll.  It was his first week attending the nursery at church, and he saw this doll on the floor.  He picked it up, looked at it with a confused look on his face, dropped it back onto the floor, and scampered off to the trucks and cars.  Maybe you beg to differ, but I believe girls are just programmed to love dolls, and boys are not!

I know I fell into the traditional little girl mold, and I had my collection of Barbie dolls.  Today’s little girl has something way cooler: Winx Club dolls!

I just learned that these dolls are on REDBOOK’s top 10 Kids Toys to Buy this year!  I also heard a rumor that they are SOLD OUT in some stores, so if you’re little girl has this on her list, you better get crackin!

Winx Club, the hot Nickelodeon show, is an animated modern fantasy adventure series that follows six best friends – Bloom, Stella, Flora, Musa, Tecna and Aisha – enrolled in Alfea College, the finest fairy school in all the realms. When trouble arises, the Winx Club transform into beautiful fairies who use their unique magical powers to fight villains and save the world from evil.


These dolls are pretty fantastic!  They are definitely not wimpy, easily-breakable things.  These girls are 11.5″ tall with eleven points of articulation, trend-setting outfits, and spectacular hinged wings.

I like that the product line contains positive messages of girl empowerment.  The Winx Club reflects principles of self-expression, friendship, adventure, magic and fashion.  In case you want to catch up on the latest Winx Club adventures, new episodes air each Sunday at 12:00 pm Eastern on Nickelodeon.

I was sent two dolls–Bloom and Flora.  I’m going to hold on to my Flora, and one lucky winner can win Bloom!

Because I was sent the giveaway doll as well as my own, this winner will be responsible for paying shipping.  Keep in mind it will be mailed from me in Boston, but shipped any way you prefer.  Therefore, this giveaway is open to entries WORLDWIDE!

Remember those beautiful tops from POSHTOP I told you about a couple weeks ago?  (You can read that review HERE). And remember how I mentioned that they have the most beautiful lace skirts?  I am so excited to tell you more about them!

These skirts are just exquisite!  They are lined with their silky sold stretch micro fiber, fully opaque, and available in two lengths: below the knee, and full-length maxi.  They come in black lace over sand, or black lace over black lining.

Today’s hemlines are creeping up higher and higher these days.  The typical dress bought in a boutique or department store falls somewhere mid-thigh, which is usually embarrassingly too high for my taste.  I’m quite a shorty, and I still have trouble finding skirts that reach to my knees.  This beautiful knee-length skirt from POSHTOP is so lovely and perfectly modest, in a length that is so hard to find.

Often I try to avoid the whole at-the-knee/above-the-knee battle and just go for the oh-so-popular maxi skirt.  The POSHTOP maxi has yards of dreamy lace that looks so vintage and luxurious!  I feel like a million bucks wearing one of these!  My skirt got so many compliments at church last Sunday!  Even though the lace looks delicate, the skirt is quite durable, and can handle my boys crawling in and out of my lap all during church without a snag.  I appreciate that it doesn’t have a heavy weight for all those yards of lovely fabric, and it is so silky soft inside.

I feel like these skirts could be appropriate in so many settings.  They are dressy enough to wear to a formal event, but they could also be perfect in a business casual workplace.  I can’t wait to wear this to my husband’s grand work Christmas party downtown this year!

My favorite feature of the POSHTOP skirts is that they are machine washable (on delicate), and that they don’t show wrinkles, so they would surely travel well.  I literally took this skirt out of the bag and put it on.  No ironing involved, no wrinkles, no funky creases or pulls on the lace.  Plus, the elastic waistband makes this a go-to skirt during all of those transition times of weight gaining and losing because it will always look great on you.
